Lost my Internet connection on one of my computers...





Possum
Hi

I have 2 computers on a network. Suddenly one lost all connection with the internet while the other maintained its connection..

NO big deal all I did was turn both the router and computer off and on again to regain connection..


But I would like to know how this happened or at least know of any steps I could take to find out what happened....

P.S. I could ping the internet with the bad computer

thx

Can you provide more details?

- Wired or wireless?
- router model
- Operating System
- Check the IP of the PC (perform ipconfig from CMD)


from your router there should be an option to check what are devices connected check if it is seeing 1 or 2 PC

Well if you are using a wireless connection, then it could have just lost the signal. If you are using Ethernet, then it could have been booted off the network by your router, or ISP. Or the IP given to the PC by the DHCP server could have expired.

But like jdelfire said, provide more information so we can better help you. Right now it's too vague to really give you any help.
