I have two computers that network, and connect to the internet, through a Speedtouch 716 DSL router.
One computer appears to be having hard disk problems and has just had a major crash. I have got it running again, having run chkdsk, but that computer can no longer access the network.
I suspect that it is an IP issue as, if I try the "repair" option, I get a box saying "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address".
When I check the status, it shows packets sent but none received.
When I check the devices from the other computer (the admin computer), the one I am having problems with is shown as inactive.
The computer is hard wired and I have checked the physical connections.
Can someone please help me with advise as to correcting this problem?
run it reboot and see if that fixes it. If not is the network card disabled or corrupt? try removing it in device manager and it should pick it up after a reboot if given the option choose to install new driver or over right the old drivers.
