Stuck Ip Help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK, Somebody is going to answer this in like 30 seconds and then my senile old memory will say YEAH that's how you do it.

Short version- onboard network card sees current router, bought new router, when connected card shows the infamous red X. I Say ok, hook back up to old router and it works. HHHMMM, try this, hook directly to Cable modem and again red X of death. Try (in windows vista) diagnose connection, force new IP, NOT HAPPENING. It says there isn't even a cable plugged it but I can take the cable from the modem or new router and slip it into the old router and within 20 seconds poof everything is fine. It's not the cable -it's got the old routers IP adress stuck in it's stupid network card brain.

Now the funny thing is I have the old router at the end connected to the new router and that is connected to the cable box. Talk about silly. Works fine but I know the IP needs to be released from my network card and do not know how to do it in the cmd section.

Windows cannot force the IP reset. Someone talk me through the cmd steps please? If theres another way I am open to that as well.

Thanks
Mch

DAH I knew it would happen-Slapped my forhead when I read the Release/Renew

Thanks guys, will try when I get back to the house. HOPEFULLY, that will fix the issue. Sure seems like I have it diagnosed.
