On Saturday my internet access didnt work when I turned my computer on, wasnt home long enough to look into it....When i Returned home and turned my PC back on it was going.
Yesterday (Sunday) my internet did the same thing, However I wasnt rushed to get out the house so stopped to sort it out....I discovered that I STILL had local network access....My network drives were connected, I COULD access the HTPC.....I could also VNC into the HTPC and use that computer to browse the internet. My flatmate also had no issues on his pc.
After a bit of looking at DHCP settings, I did a ipconfig and saw the line 0.0.0.0 under DNS, followed by another line underneath with another DNS.....that is the correct one. (see picture)
Uninstall, restart pc, reinstall of network adapter latter, picked up DHCP and all was good again.
Today Ive come home to the same problem.
I turned on my PC and no internet access. This is where the picture comes in
No. 1 Shows me (somewhat annoyed at this stage) doing an ipconfig and it showing 0.0.0.0 has returned.
No. 2 Shows when I disabled the network adapter.
No. 3 Shows when i Enabled the network adapter and its picked up the CORRECT settings.
It seems as the DNS is set to 0.0.0.0 is doesnt look at the second line with the correct one. So it doesnt find internet access.
Im currently on my computer so internet access has returned. But im trying to find out whats going on for if it does it again.
What have I done?
I only recently added the network drives.
I havnt done an 'windows update' for a while. I'm not sure what its set too, it may have found a network adapter update and done it by itself.
No router settings have been adjusted.
I installed adobe illustrator and adobe photoshop, possibly on Friday....Cant think of any thing else I have modified on my computer since then.
