DHCP Troubles

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Decided it would be best to move the discussion from my other thread in the AMD motherboards section to here.

Long story short, I cant get the internet to work on my new pc, which is using the onboard network adapter on the Asus A8N-E mobo.

I have pretty much got it down to the point that its the DHCP that isnt working, it isnt giving me an IP address to use when on the same connection, same exact network wire even, it works on my current pc. All mobo drivers are loaded, etc.

Are DHCP problems to be handled with my ISP? Or is there some sort of fix to this?

Make sure that the DHCP service is started in the services bit under Admin control panel.

Did you run Network connection wizard on the new rig?

Are you using a router? How are the 2 computers connected to the Internet?

Havent been able to purchase a new length of wire so I have been just unplugging one computer and trying it on the new one :|

Ghetto rig!


DHCP is activated, and yes I tried to run the network connection wizard but it really didnt do anything.

Note, the single length of wire I have comes straight from the modem.

Plug in the network cable to the new computer, then unplug the power to the modem for like 20 seconds, then plug it back in (reboot the modem). Sometimes they'll lock to a MAC address and need to be rebooted.

Tired it and it didnt work, then it took a few reboots and another reset of the modem to get it to work here on my old PC!

Should I just try calling my isp? Or is this something they just cant help?

That's kinda strange. Your ISP should be able to help you with that. It could be that your modem is a little flakey and needs to be replaced. Who is your ISP?

In any case, I would recommend buying a wired router. You should be able to find one for under 20 bucks.

Got it to work...I had reinstalled drivers as it had been suggested and that is usually a big problem but I never actually UNINSTALLED them

A very noobish mistake, I will admit.

Thanks to all for suffering through my cryptic descriptions and trying to help me though!
