I have a peculiar problem, I would love it if somebody could get me out of this rut.
My computer does not have online access.
The icon on the tasbar that shows connection active appears, it is enabled. But whenever I start the browser, it acts like I am not connected, with the "detect settings error" window. So I go into network properties and click, 'repair this device'. Its says failure, that it could not retrieve the IP addy.
I have tried other LAN connections, wificard, safemode, and system restore: same result. I contacted the school's IT department but they told me to leave a msg and they will get back... ...dude I need access now, this is the weekend before registration for fall!
What's going on? This crap is driving me absolutely batty.
