Hi guys and girls,
A few weeks ago, my Mother-in-laws PC starting having this issue where it would connect to her router, but would not obtain an IP address. I've tried disabling her internet card, and updating the drivers, but it would only work once. Meaning it would make the initial connection and obtain the address. But after rebooting, it would go back to not obtaining that address from the router. I've tried using my phone as a modem, and installing a wireless card. They both had the same results as before. They'd make the connection and obtain the address, but after rebooting, they wouldn't work anymore. We thought it might be her router, but every other device in the house worked fine (PC, laptop, XBox, iPod, phone). I took it my house to use on my router, and it had the same issues.
Any idea what might be causing this? I mean, other than it's not a Mac?
