Can't connect to a DSL connection or "release" the IP config
Posted on 2002-03-22
I have a DSL connection on network "A" that has about 25 PC's all connecting to the Internet. I just added a new PC to network "A" using Win98 SE. The PC can access all other PC's on the network. However, it cannot access the Internet. I have the new PC configured consistently with all of the other PC's using the Internet on network "A". However, what I have seen from the new PC is that I cannot "release" the IP configuration when I run "winipcfg". I removed and reinstalled the network card and put the new PC on a network "B", which uses a cable modem for Internet access. It connects to the Internet just fine on network "B". I can "release" the IP configuration without a problem when it is connected to network "B". Unfortunately, when I put the new PC on network "A", using the DSL connection, it still will not connect to the Internet and I can no longer "release" the IP configuration.
Any ideas? Leaving the new PC on network "B" would solve my problem, but I have to put it on newwork "A"
