Windows 7: Media Disconnected Problem

Media Disconnected Problem

Good Afternoon,

I have finally bitten the bullett after 3 days solid. I have tried everything possible i have searched endless forums and have come to realise i just dont think my computer wants to fix it.

The problem i have is my router now has a ip address of 169.x were as the origonal one was 192.168.x.x. Since it has changed it will not let me access the router settings so i can change anything. The reason this has happened is i tried to install a desktop remote application with run along with my pc and laptop but as i was quite impatient to install i ran through a few quick settings it asked me to change on windows settings and now i cant remember what i changed. I have copy and paseted the read back i get when i press ipconfig on cmd prompt. Could somebody please put me out of my misery and help me to convert it back, i have read on a few places that the DHCP is the problem.

Suggest you reset your router. There should be a pin-sized reset button somewhere at the back of the router. Then follow steps to reconfigure the router as given in the manual/cd.

Thank you very much for your reply, i have tried that but nothing it still seems to be the same. Even tried leaving the router unplugged over night. I think i have changed something that i just need to change back, is there any way to reset the network settings in Windows 7? Or should my ip be static as apose to DHCP. I have now plugged the thernet cable stright into the computer so i am not using the wireless router and it is still the same so i need to access the modem and change the settings which i changed foe enabling DHCP or something like that. Is there no bypass i can access it by araprt from 192.168.0.1.

Well, connect to your router and try typing www.routerlogin.com.

Thank you for that but it seems that redirects me to the netgear page and the router that i have is:

Scientific Atlanta 2100r2

Any idea why it sent me there or was it supposed to? I really do appreciate you helping me with this.
