I am here, sorry about that. OK since your network is working, the problem is on your computer. Can you do the following on your computer for me?

 

 

  1. Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press R to bring up the Run window.
  2. Type cmd and click OK.
  3. Type ipconfig and hit the Enter key.
  4. What is listed for the IP address and default gateway? They should be numbers like 192.168.1.1.

  2. Type cmd and click OK.

  2. Type cmd and click OK.
  3. In the DOS box that appears, please type ping 192.168.1.1 (please note that there is a space between the word ping and the numbers). Hit the Enter key. Do you get timeouts or replies?
