No IP address??

softie asked 2 years ago

Good morning everyone

I have just purchased a Netbook, and find i cannot access the internet via wifi through Internet Explorer.

Went to ipconfig as advised, and found that my ip address comes up as 0.0.0.0.

Is this ok, and if not, is there anything i can do to remedy the situation?

Many thanks

What type of internet connection are you trying to use? Dial-up, DSL, Cable, Wi-Fi?

Try ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /release will result in a 0.0.0.0 IP.
(Its a funny joke to play on the unsuspecting)

Does the netbook work anywhere else, or if you are using a wired connection?
