Okay, this is a new one on me. I’ll be running fine, logged in, like usual… and every once in a while, the PC light on the modem and router will go out. Just for a few seconds! Then it comes back on. I checked the cables on the modem, the router, and the back of the PC. ::shrug::
A Google search turned up this remedy: Run the DOS command “ipconfig.” I don’t actually know what that does, it seems to just report your IP information for your ethernet card.
According to the anwer there…
ipconfig /release will release your ip
ipconfig /renew will try to optain a new one from your router
None of which I want to do, because I painstakingly set up my router/modem to have a static IP for running NWN. (Which, if I haven’t mentioned it before, stunningly works!) For now, I’m just typing ipconfig and then exiting. ::big shrug:
To run a DOS prompt:
type in cmd in the little box and hit enter.
