I am using a Dell tower desktop with an XP operating system. I use it mostly to run several programs to write and print simple things, as well as some pretty elementary stuff. As you may imagine, it works just fine for such things.
I also had in hooked up to the Internet for very limited, infrequent use and again, no problems.
Now I am rearranging some things and have moved the computer to another area in the same room, with everything the same except for the addition of a new monitor. I did have to use an older connection to get the monitor video into the computer, but no problem.
BUT when I plugged my Internet cable into the SAME router, I could not get an Internet connection (using Google Fiber). Tried a second cable with the same result.
I can't figure this out. Surely a new monitor is not to blame for this situation?
