Question about Computers & Internet
Turn off the "DHCP Service".
That would be "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol", and it's the service that assigns IP addresses automatically.
If you need "DHCP" to connect yourself, you could always turn off your "ssid broadcast".
That way, nobody (including you) will see your router while scanning, wardriving, etc.
Of course, you will know it's there and what "ssid"
you gave it, so you'll be able to connect just by using the right ssid.

Make sure that you have still a valid ip address on command prompt. Go to start - click run - type cmd (open box) - click ok - type ipconfig after the cursor - hit enter and check ip address. If you are getting an ip address of 0.0.0.0 or ip starting with 169.254....then that is the reason. Unplug and replug router to regain the ip. also check firewall and proxy server. they should be disabled
