Question

going online

Aug 15, 2015 4:19AM PDT

Each time I go on the internet, I must first go to System Preferences and then network. where I see my IP address. Then I select ADVANCED where I see my network name and security. Then I select DNS, where I see the numbers for my DNS server. Then I select + (which adds 0.0.0.0), then to - (which deletes 0.0.0.0 and re-adds my IP address). Then I select GO and APPLY. After this I can go online for the entire length of time I am online. I must repeat the process a few hours later to get online.
