Question about HP Computers & Internet
I've been trying to connect to our department's local network. They've already added my Ethernet address in and my machine can detect the network.
But in the 'Network and Sharing Center' it always shows as: 'Access: Local only'. I cannot connect to either the Internet or our department's system. I tryied to 'Diagnose' for a couple of times, but it didn't help at all.
I've disabled my wireless adaptor.
I have successfully connected only once, by chance. I even didn't know how I made it. Later on, even though I tried everything I could think of, it never works again.
Does your department use DHCP? (It will automatically update your computer's settings when connecting)
If so, I would go into your TCP/IP Properties and make sure its set to automatic as well.
If not, you need to go into your TCP/IP Properties and put in the IP Address, Subnet, Gateway, and DNS servers information.
Also try opening command prompt and doing IPCONFIG /RELEASE then do IPCONFIG /RENEW.
Lastly, sometimes you can right click on the connection icon by the clock and do a repair, that will do pretty much the same thing, but sometimes works.
