not the default gatewy
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
other wise I can find the first two
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

there is nothing listed for default gateway, but there are something for the other 2?

Go to start screen --> search control panel --> soft by large icons --> network and sharing center --> change adapter settings --> right click on WiFi network go to properties --> highlight IPV4 --> properties --> in here do you have use the following or obtain IP address automatically?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
there is
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
its set up to obtain Ip address automatically
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

on the command prompt window (black window cmd)

type in ipconfig /all

See where it says DHCP server, do you know the IP address of your router; if so the DHCP server should be the same.
To get the device online go back to where you saw the obtain IP address automatically and enter ip - subnet - default gateway manually

For DNS put in 8.8.8.8
Then see if you can get out to the Internet. Once you have Internet we can troubleshoot why DHCP is having issues and not assigning you a default gateway.

Are you on your phone or another PC that's working? Maybe I can remote into a working PC and show you.

forget it I don't want to mess the other computer up
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

We wouldn't be changing any settings, all you have to do is ipconfig on that one.

Say it comes back with

IPv4 = 192.168.1.10

subnet = 255.255.255.0

gateway = 192.168.1.1

Then on broken one, you change it from obtain ip address automatically to use the follow ip

then everything is the same except for IPV4 address, just use something like 192.168.1.20 (only have to change the last number)

all I have to do is get the getway one from the working one?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
we don't have wriless on that one
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

It'll be the same as it's all pulling from the same router.. or it should be unless you have a complex network setup.

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

Yes get the gateway, and plug in your current IP address / subnet. Then use 8.8.8.8 for dns.
If that doesn't work then we would need to setup a remote session to look at router wireless settings.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok I am going to try that and get back to you
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

We will need a remote session into working PC to look at router if you want to do that.

Is there a way to do it on the non working one my dad dosent want any one on his comptuer
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

We have to get Internet working before we can. Are you able to plug a network cable into the one that's not working temporarily? Just to get Internet working, then I can troubleshoot wireless issue?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What do you want to do
Tech Support Specialist: Cody, Senior Systems Administrator replied 2 years ago

If you can plug the laptop directly into the router to get Internet access. I can then remote in and fix the Wireless issue.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
