cannot renew ip address

by jcSam / April 10, 2006 8:41 PM PDT

I've been recently having trouble connecting to the internet. I switched from dsl to cable and i plug in my D-Link dcm-202 and plug the ethernet cable into my comp, the balloon goes from being disconnected to connected. I click on explorer and page cannot be displayed. I right click on my network connection and select repair. The window comes up and says trying to renew and then stopps and says it's 'unable to take the action "renew ip address"'. Plse hlp going insane

Try reading this and follow the steps

If you still cannot connect, I would suggest a call to D-Link support. If you cannot get an IP address, then your computer and the D-Link are not communicating properly. Obviously you will have to use another internet source to read the link info. IE: library or friend
