Exclamation Ipconfig media disconnect
Alright so I own a desktop OPtiplex Gx260 (if i'm not mistaken)

It runs windows XP s3 Home edition


While the lap top runs Windows 7.


Now That that shouldn't really be contributing factors to the issue, just wanted to give some background info.


I have had constant internet problems for the passed 2 months, and I could not seem to figure out why. That is until someone from the internet idiotically tried to blame it on my cordless phone, which I know is not causing the issue they just always jump to that.

The issue seems to be originating from what I can tell an IP conflicting between my desktop and wireless laptop. I stumbled upon a media disconnection issue on both and decided to ipconfig/release, and then renew the IPs of both.

The desktop release, and renew, worked like a charm!

However the lap top is telling me it cannot do so due to the disconnected media.

I attempted to copy and paste the results but upon using keyboard shortcuts it merely types stuff like A^, or C^ .

Any advice?

try using selecting all and the right click and copy / paste

how are you connecting the desktop - cable or wireless
you connecting the laptop by wireless - what happens if you try with the laptop connected by cable - just as a test

if you can copy and paste here - even by putting all the results into notepad and copy to a different PC
also attach screen shots if necessary

Sadly if I could have gotten it from that computer to this one via text I would have already.

Might be able to do screenshot, piece by piece. Will try that if need be.

The desktop is wired, and the laptop is wireless.

And connecting laptop by cable does nothing different, already tried this.

It reads as if there is still a disconnect.

Now i can still access the net with either computer, just when doing so at the same time it causes IP confliction.

can we see an ipconfig /all - if you could type a little of the information in

from the ethernet LAN adapter on the desktop and from the wireless adapter on the laptop

it will sort of look like this - and perhaps you can just post the bits i have in red for both adapters

I typed this out by hand, this is what shows (mostly) for the Windows 7 lap top, which is suppose to be using the Wifi. Now keep in mind it still gets internet access, the problem is though that I will have indefinite loading on both laptop and desktop if trying to use them at the same time, which eventually leads to a modem crash.

I can stop the loading, by turning off the laptops internet access, waiting a few minutes, and then everything works perfectly fine. I can recreate the problem nearly at free will.

no need to type it all out -

so do they both work one at a time all OK - if so then you should be able to paste here ok

whats the info for the other machine - the bits i highlighted in red - or if connected paste it all

the Ethernet connection needs to be set to automatic , although no IP are present - just that would not work if you needed to connect by a cable
