ipconfig wont work

By trunner410 ·
Someone please help, i am trying to get back on my wireless network at home and i do and it says im connected but i cant open ne websites. I recently fooled around with my mac address changing for a reason but i changed it back. would that affect anything? To see if i am different from the desktop which is connected i tried ipconfig /all on my laptop and it came up for a second then disappeared, now it worked a while ago when i was fooling around with my mac address but now that nor any other command will stay up long. What is goin on and how do i fix it, thanks

Can't hurt, might work

by Tig2 In reply to ipconfig wont work

Turn off laptop. Remove battery. Wait 30 second minimum. Replace battery. Leave laptop off.

Pull power from both modem and router. Wait 30 second minimum. Plug in the modem. Let it complete the post cycle. Plug in the router. Let it complete the post cycle. Turn on laptop.

It should have forgotten everything and return to normal.

your running it from the "RUN" command, aren't you?

by jdclyde In reply to ipconfig wont work

you have to launch the command prompt, and THEN do the ipconfig.

The only other thing I have seen is some virusi replace ipconfig and msconfig. do a virus and malware scan from SAFE MODE.

Don't feel bad

by jdclyde In reply to fixed it

I recognized what you were doing, because I at one time had done the same thing. You learn more from making mistakes than if you accidentally do something correctly the first time, ( and I have learned a lot... )

Don't forget to mark as helpful?
