Wireless internet will not work with ethernet plugged in

by camel_456 / September 15, 2007 12:36 AM PDT


I recently bought a Asus WL-700ge storage router. It's got a built in hard drive and that?s all I'm using it for, the storage. I already have a wireless network setup in my home which my laptop connects happily to. the problem is, when I connect my new Asus box via Ethernet to my laptop web pages stop loading. I don't loose the connection and windows say's both connections are happy. When I unplug the Ethernet I can once again access the internet. I think it might have something to do with the IP addresses of the devices although I've tried just about every combination of static and dynamic addresses and my laptop and the Asus box. If anyone can help it would be really great! One of the main reason I bought this device was so I could download large files from the web directly to it, obviously right now that?s impossible! Thanks in advance

If you have the stock values you could find that they are in conflict. I can't offer more than this because you didn't share these details.

Click Start Run, then CMD

In the command window...


Your Internet IP is not of interest so just share the first 2 numbers and .xx.xx the last two.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
