    All of a sudden then internet for the main computer in the house suddenly stopped responding, everything is plugged in, both the modem and the receiver are on, and I just can't access any form of internet, even the online games don't work.

    It's like all of a sudden the ISP just let the service go, but for some odd reason, every other computer in the house works even though they are all connected to the main computer via LAN.

    Shut down the modem/router and all computers. Wait 5 minutes. Turn the modem/router back on, then the computers one by one.

    I need to find a way to reset my computer's IP through CMD, you see, I can't connect to the internet because I messing around with CMD and changed my IP to something copmletely random, and now I can't connect to the internet ever since that happened.

    I'm pretty sure if I can get my IP back to it's original I cna connect to the internet again, but how do I find that out? is there a way to automatically reset your IP back to it's original?

    The IP address of the computer should reset on reboot, unless you changed it via the network settings to a fixed address.

    Hardware geek huh? :eek:

    It should, but it's not.

    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
