I can't reset a 169 series IP address on my 4600C in order to direct connect to a cable modem (and internet).


Provided there is no hardware problems, this issue is fairly easy to resolve.
  1. Completely shutdown the system
  2. Unplug power to the cable modem.
  3. Wait 3 minutes (This allows the temp memory of the cable modem to scrub)
  4. power on the cable modem, let it reset (Takes about a minute)
  5. boot the system.
Normally this will force the cable modem to renew the MAC address of the device connected and give you a valid IP address.
If you still have an APIPA address, try right clicking the local area connection ICON and click REPAIR
If still no connection, reboot computer in safe mode w/networking and try again. If you get a connection then the issue is software (Firewall, Virus, Malware)
If you still are not getting a valid IP address, check your cabling and connection (Replace cable with a known good one if available) or try a different network card.

I cant conect to the intornet. im using cable can u help mi.


First thing is check and see if you have a valid IP address (Start, run, CMD enter) type (IPCONFIG /All ) this will give you the IP address information. If result of IP address is 0.0.0.0 or 169.254.x.x then you don't have connectivity with your broadband connection (Bad Cable, Bad NIC, Other communication issue etc)
If no valid IP address, the 1st thing is to power off system, power off any router you may be using and power off the broadband modem. Wait 3 minutes. Power on broadband modem, wait a minute to let it reset, power on Router (If you have one) wait a minute for it to reset, power on system and test your connection. If no change, try a different computer at that connection see if it can access the internet. If another system works, it is likely the Network Interface Card (NIC) which on a Dimension 2400 is part of the motherboard (Buy a PCI NIC for $10)
If you have a valid IP address, boot to the safe mode with networking (F8 at boot) then see if you can connect, if so then your issue is software based (Firewall, security software, possible virus) If it doesn't connect then there could be issue with your TCP/IP protocol settings. If you can't connect in safe mode with net, reboot to normal mode, then right-click your local area network connection and click REPAIR and see if that doesn't resolve. If no change try an anti-malware program like Malwarebytes

No internet connection, system stuck on ''acquiring ntwrk address''


It's doing this because it's not getting the IP from either the router or the modem. Goto Start, run and type cmd. Now type ipconfig /all. On this this list you should see IP address = 192.168.??.?? andDefault Gateway = 192.168.??.??. If your getting both of these addresses then your system if infected with virus. I suspect though that your list is probably not filled out. If so type ipconfig /flush dns. Then type ipconfig /renew. These commands should bring you back online, if not I would call Conmcast and have theme ping the modem. If the modem pings fine I would say that either your modem cable or network card are faulty.

Cant get my internet to work


go to control panel and open network properties.
Go to the properties of your network card and then the properties on the TCP/IP settings.

It should be set to obtain IP address automatically

Post back if that doesn't work

Acquiring Address Problem


you will need to make sure that DHCP is enabled within the routers settings as this will tell the router to assign ip addresses automatically, then go to network connections, right click on your network card>properties>TCP/IP line>properties and tick 'obtain an ip address automatically', click ok, close window and restart pc.

I cant get onto internet explorer it says dns error can you help?


Check out your internet connection and its settings, whether it is dial up or broadband oriented.
then you have to know about your ip address of dns server in the network setting places.
you just ping the ip address of dns server following as...

go to start, then run and type "cmd", and it shows the command prompt. type as following format.

ping 10.10.10.5 and press enter key.. this is the sample ip address only. if it gets reply, your dns server is ok. you can use internet. suppose, it wont comes, ask your service provider or support for another or different ip address of dns to check it out.

My internet connection Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) only shows (Unavailable) and I can't get on the internet through my modem. I entered my IP address, etc. but it wouldn't take it.


Hi

There is no need to assign ip address for you computer to enter into internet you system will be getting the ip through DHCP.so remove the ip address and check the internet connection.Check wether the telephone line is ok .check wether there is dailtone in your telephone line and check the username and password is correct.

Do a ipconfig at the command prompt and see if you are being assigned a ip from the modem. If not try rebooting the modem with the ethernet connected to modem and computer. then do ipconfig again to see if not getting internet ip, your card or modem eternet is bad. put in a new one and try again.
