Also when you say the connection gets dropped please go into device properties and get a report on the wireless nic.. On your desktop right click on My Computer, left click on Properties, left click on device manager, left click on Network Adapter



what is the report on your wireless nic
It turns out I have two network adapters. The second is realtek PCIE GBE family Controller. It says that the device is working probably;however, explorer almost crashed when I tried to open it. I also haven't tried uninstalling the driver on this one.

Tell you what. Looks like you ain't interested in dealing with this. It's been over an hour since your last response. You could look over the diags I suggested and go to a good machine and report back. I gotta go though

If .105 is your nic, then you are not able to ping your own ip address..You can have multiple IP addresses on your computer.. they just have to be on different subnets. i.e. you wireless is 192.168.1.05 and your ethernet is 192.168.2.105

right click on your network icon then left click on network properties and sharing and tell me what you see..I'll be back in an hour and we'll walk through this. this should be easy

The full map is jared's PC to chastoy to the internet. When the connection stops, I can't confirm what happens because network and sharing center no longer operates after my computer enters limited access mode. However, I'm assuming the break is between my PC and chastoy, even though the computer still says it's connected to chastoy;because of the fact my other devices still work on that router.

So is chastoy the name of the router?

And yesterday, I didnt get an answer about how far away is the router from your PC?

Your last ping doesnt make sense. How can you ping your router but it says its coming from 1.105

Your PC is obtaining an IP address from the router, correct?

The router is approximately 12 feet away from the router and within another room. Yes chastoy is the name of the router. Edit:apparently, my connection seemed to be stronger to the insecure network than my regular router.

12 feet should be OK, How's the signal strength on your task bar?

Right click on your network icon, left click on "open network and sharing center". In the top left left click on change adapter settings properties. right click on your wireless network connection. left click on properties. left click on internet protocol ver 4 TCP/IP protocol. Check and make sure obtain address automatically is filled. ON the dns you can either put in a manual one like google's 8.8.8.8 or either obtain automatically

Also, go into manage wireless and chose your chastoy router. Go into properties and make sure it sez connect to this machine when in range or automatically or words to that effect

windows - Pinging a machine on my local network gets an 'unreachable' response from my own IP address? - Super User

Quote:
This question is now the top google result when searching for 'destination host unreachable from my own ip address'. If that's how you got here, then you should know that my problem was a silly one probably caused by temperamental hardware, so don't bother reading through the walls of text below. The sole piece of information that's probably useful to you comes from Harry Johnston's comment below:
Getting a "destination unreachable" message from your own machine is normal behaviour in recent Windows versions. It just means that the arp failed, i.e., the IP address couldn't be located on the LAN
To confirm this, try running arp -a on your machine, and you'll see a list of all the IP addresses that could be found on your LAN. If you don't see the IP address that you're trying to ping, then that explains why your pings are returning 'unreachable' from your own machine. As for how to fix that problem, it could be caused by anything. Try resetting your router, resetting your network adapters, fiddling with static/dynamic IP addresses etc etc.

ARP is hardware addresses NOT IP addresses
