Odd problem with internet connection
by MikeMikeZ - 1/29/13 10:26 AM
today, all day, i try to connect to the internet through my desktop and i cant. The funny thing is that i have 2 laptops and 1 mobile connected in my modem's wifi and works perfectly. My modem is connected to my desktop, all lights are up, but i cant reach any website.
I tried the 10 sec reset while removing power, restarted my pc, scanned my pc for viruses (webroot antivirus) but nothing worked.
For some reason i cant run "antimalware bytes" programm as it shuts down on its own, but i dont think there might be a malware that webroot cant detect.
So i keep searching till now on the internet for solutions, and i saw a very old post about pinging on browser. So i tried it (put my IP on the bar of browser) but nothing happened (i cant open modems configuration). Also i run IPCONFIG /ALL in cmd and the only "near to mine" IP i saw was a line "IPv4 169.254.12.192"
Now 2 things to notice..my "default gate" is empty in cmd and in the post i found i saw that u mustnt have and IP starting with 169.xx.xx cause then you have something corrupted..sadly the post was old enough and it had solutions only till windows XP
I run windows Vista and i didnt have this problem till today
Also, the last thing that i did tonight was executing a command in cmd that decrease the size of RAM used by programms to 2GB (down from 3)..i had increased the size cause a game "PlanetSide2" wanted 3GB of RAM to run..now i uninstalled it and i reseted to 2GB, dont know if this has something to do with my internet connectivity.
If anyone knows anything please i need your help!!
