Come Forth All Ye IT Gurus!

Okay…we got a new (used) computer, so that the children can have their own computer and so that Ping-Ping’s unprotected Chinese websites won’t infect our work computer anymore.

I got it home and I can’t get online. I have two ethernet cables. I tried the old computer on both and could get online with both. I tried the new one on both and could get online with neither.

I brought the new computer into the store. They got online with it. No prob.

But here at the house I keep getting the error: failed Renewing IP Address.

I tried Winsock Fix (that was an adventure in itself.) No luck.

I’ve looked online, but can’t find anything that seems to match.
