    Uregent Help Required From Internet Guru's!

    Hey all,

    I'm having a slight bit of problem with my iinternet connection.

    I recently got the new BT Home Hub thing.
    It was working fine then one day it decided not to aquire a network address
    So the information box says i have a limited or no connectivity.

    Phoned Bt and after 24 mins the guy says its my computer not the Hub.

    So, after connecting my old router back up am here asking for help to see what i can do...

    Thanks

    Steve

    Reset modem and reset network conection but in my experience just keep resetting the modem.
    I'm like a bad penny, old, dirty, and appears when not wanted.

    Can try a different port on the router and also a different cable if you have one, seen a problem similar to this and it was the rj45 plug wasnt terminated correctly, computer was seeing it connected but couldnt get an IP, also as said before, try rebooting modem and pc and if that fails try reseting the router to default settings. Also, how did they figure it was a problem with your pc and not the router, i think he may have just wanted to finish to call or ran out of ideas for you to try.
