I got home yesterday after work, turned on my computer and checked my email. I then went to make dinner and when I returned, I had no internet connection. I tried repairing the LAC, nothing cant renew. I tried ipconfig /flushdns and /registerdns, as well as netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt. Then I uninstalled my nic and reinstalled it. Still 169. I didn't change a thing..... Anyways, Now I'm backing up all my music and am getting ready to wipe the bitch clean. I've had some issues with Counterstrike Source that I hope to eliminate as well.... I just wondered if there was any sort of explanation as to why it would just instantly stop working. I have no firewalls or antivirus running on my computer, and did not open any weird attachments in my email. Thanks.
