Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I lose internet connection every time I reboot the laptop after installing a program, when I checked with msn messenger, it said problem with key ports. I tried to ping www.google.com, I got a reply with no packet loss.
You have probably set up your system to use DHCP - that is non-static IPs.
Right Click on your connection, go to properties, click IPv4, properties again
if it says get settings automatically then you are using dynamic IP addressing DHCP... this can cause problems,
To set up your Static IP on your computer
you will need your routers default gateway
you get that by typing ipconfig at the command prompt... found under Start menu ->Accessories, Command Prompt
Type in IPconfig
look for default gateway - write it down.
Go to your ISPs web site and see if you can find their DNS server IP addresses -or search under google - as a last resort use these
All DNS servers are public and free to use.
Then enter your Static IP which is derived from your default gateway. So if your default gateway is 192.168.1.1 then your IP can be anything between
192.168.1.2 and 126.96.36.199
Subnet = 255.255.255.0
Enter your default gateway
Enter your DNS server IPs and you should be good to go....
Remember if it all goes horribly wrong for some reason (It shouldn't) then just return and reset everything to get settings to automatic and all will return unrtil another solution is discovered.
