I've never seen that command use with those switches (<enter>
I've done a search on the internet for their use but haven't found anything, what do they do?
from the start button, Choose run, then enter "cmd" without the quotes.
that should bring up a black window on your monitor.
you will see something like C:\ and then some other information.
Click at the end of the line with the C:\ and enter the command
without the quotes.
if you see any information that comes back that starts with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx that usually means that your computer does not have a network address that will allow you to connect to the internet. IF the router is working correctly, you should see something with a 192.168.xxx.xxx in the configuration. That usually means that your router has detected your PC and gave it a network address.
IF you have an IP address that starts with 192.168.xxx.xxx, try to ping an outside web site like googles dynamic name service (DNS) at 184.108.40.206 by using this command in the command window.
ping 220.127.116.11 if it gets no responses, then I would suspect something is wrong between the router and the wall it plugs in to. BUT I'm guessing that part works because, you've posted here on this forum.
Granted, this presumes a lot like your computer is already set up for using Dynamic Host Control Protocol (DHCP), which is a whole other conversation.
If ipconfig /all comes back with no connections, then you may have an issue with either the network card, or the network cable, because neither lasts for ever.
