    Default cable internet network setting

    hi all:

    I have problem with my computer not being able to go on the internet through the cable modem. I think my address type setting is wrong it read automatic private address and right so to be assigned by dhcp. How do I change address type under network connection? I have earthlink cable internet and any help is appreciated greatly.

    automatic private address = won't work

    your want to change your tcp/ip settings - right click on network icon, properties, tcp/ip settings then set your ip to manual (not you'll need to know what these should be, if you have a working computer, do an inpconfig /all and let us know what the results are so we can tell you what to put in)

    or

    drop to "dos" and do
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew

    ipconfig /all - will tell you your settings, if your still having problems, do this and post the results so we can work out whats going on.
