Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to fix someone's internet connection and am having some difficulty getting rid of the ip settings. The old connection was DSL and now using cable.
I deleted the old connections and built a new one. It tells me its connected but cannot bring up the internet.
Using ipconfig /release all/renew is not working. The release works but when trying to renew I am getting a timeout error.
Sometimes, it's necessary to turn the modem off overnight, with cable modem folks, so that the IP address can reconfigure..weird, but true..
also, you may want to go to settings, and automatically set the address, instead of using the dedicated IP approach.

NOTE: The image may vary depending on the computer and modem you're using.
Connecting the Devices Together
After confirming the Internet connection through the modem, connect the modem to the Internet port of the router; connect the computer to any of the four Ethernet ports at the back of the router. For instructions, click here.
Checking the Router's LEDs
After connecting the devices together, check the lights on the front panel of the router. Ensure that the Internet light, as well as numbered light corresponding to the Ethernet port where the computer is connected, is lit. For further instructions, click here.
Setting Up a Linksys Router for Cable Internet Connection
Access the router's web-based setup page. For instructions, click here.
NOTE: If you are using a Mac computer to access the router's web-based setup page, click here.
On the Setup tab, click the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Select Enabled then click Clone My PC's MAC.
Click Save Settings.
Click the Status tab.
Check the Internet IP Address. If the Internet IP Address has numbers, this means the router has been properly configured. You should now be able to access the Internet. If you're still unable to access the Internet, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
NOTE: If the IP address is still 0.0.0.0, click IP Address Release then, click IP Address Renew. If this does not change the IP Address, powercycle the modem, the router and then restart the computer.
