Question about Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop
Hey people. I'm here with a problem connecting to the internet on my other computer. I know it's the computer's problem, because this one works fine. Let me give you the details.
When I use an Ethernet cable from my modem to this computer, it works fine. However, if I do the same to my other computer, no packets are ever received, the IP Address is wrong, etc... I've also tried wireless internet connections (Don't wanna get into that) and that gave me the same problem. I'm manually set the stuff, as in IP, default Gateway, etc... to match this computer's when it's connected directly to the modem. However, it sends a few packets, receives them, and then stops. It will send more, and receive none. I've tried CMD's "ipconfig /release & renew" like suggested, and that didn't help. I've tried pretty much everything I could find. I just installed the drivers for the network adapter (Ethernet card...) yesterday.
On the back of the computer, the Ethernet lights are Orange (solid) and yellow-green (flashing). From what I heard, solid orange is a good thing. Plus my speed is 100MB/s, so...
If I don't manually set the IP settings, it can't get an IP. It always returns a 169.254.*.* IP, which isn't right. And it can't get a default gateway, and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0 (Instead of 255.255.255.0).
Thanks for your help. This problem has been killing me!
PS: I couldn't find any help online. None of the solutions helped.
Use correct ip address and DNS address and the n check the connection with domain and then connect it to internet. use ping with ip address to check the modem performance.
