But the black screen does not have the IP address when you enter cmd and enter it shows 0.0.0.0.0 they refered to me to e machines to have them force the IP address into the system. What can I do to get the IP address into the computer.

    So i got the IP Address to appear correctly, by removing Kaspersky and then using the windows firewall. However now when I try to log onto the internet using IE, it opens and just has a blank screen. I do not get any type of error message.

    I don't need the firewall to be protected from virsuses and stuff. I am now using Webroot spysweeper that i bought originally with the computer

Suspect your cable modem is looking for the MAC address of your compaq's NIC. if you run IPCONFIG /ALL on the Compaq (Start run, cmd <enter> then IPCONFIG /ALL <enter> , you can get the 12 digit MAC address.

In the router setup, there should be an option to CLONE MAC address, put in the MAC address of the COMPAQ. Then release and renew the IP address in the Router from the cable modem. The router should then get a valid IP address from the cableand you should be able to connect both systems to the router and surf.

Windows XP: How to release and renew IP addresses


IP addresses can either be assigned manually or automatically. When they are assigned automatically, a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server hands them out and determines which computer or other device gets which address. This process usually flows smoothly, but there are times when you may need to release or renew an IP address even when using DHCP.

There are several ways to release and renew IP addresses in Windows XP. Each procedure is described below.

From the system notification tray:

1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray.
2. Select Repair. Windows will automatically release the current IP address, reset the network connection, and request an IP address from the DHCP server. (The new IP address that gets assigned may be a different one from before, or it may be the same one.)

From the Start menu:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Right click on My Network Places.
3. Select Properties.
4. Right click on the network connection that is currently in use.
5. Select Repair. (If you choose a network connection that is not in use, Repair will be grayed out.)

For either of the above methods, you can release and renew your IP address manually by clicking Disable instead of Repair, and then right-clicking and choosing Enable.

From the command prompt:

1. Click the Start button.
2. Click Run.
3. Type "cmd" and press [Enter].
4. At the command line, type "ipconfig /release" and press [Enter].
5. Type "ipconfig /renew" and press [Enter].
6. Type "exit" and press [Enter].

How do i renew the ip adress for my linksys router ?


Goto your web browser.

Enter 192.168.1.1 and put admin for both username and password.

The admin screen for your router should have a MAC address clone feature. If you enter the MAC address (which is found on the main page of the admin screen) and change the last two boxes, it will renew the IP address. Don't change the first 4 of the mac. When putting different numbers in the last two, it has to be hex (1-8 for first digit and a-f on the second digit).

Hope this helps,

Wrong ip address. No fix w/ipconfig/renew


192. is the beginning of a default gateway IP address and is usually only assigned when you are using a router. I recommend connecting to your router.

Cannot renew ip address


You may have to perform a DNS Flush..Sometimes with wireless, the laptop cache in the IP address that is used when you are connected wirelessly. You can Flush this down the toilet by performing the following command at a DOS Prompt by going to run, and type in CMD, then input the following command in. Once this is done, try to renew your IP again!!

C:\>ipconfig /flushdns
