My PC could not connect to the Internet.

Asked By 830 points N/A Posted on -

Hello friends,

Please help me. My PC can't connect to the internet, even though I put the cables in the port of the hub and PC properly.

What I am going to do? Is the hub broken and will have to replace with a new one?

Or the Internet Service Provider has a problem?

But the PC on my brother's room has an internet and doing well.

The problem you had has a lot of solutions. But first we should identify what the real problem. Heres the first thing you will do to identify the problem. You stated that the internet connection with your brother pc is working well. Is the pc of your brother connected also in the same hub you connect your pc? If it is then there is no problem with the internet service provider.

First check your IP address maybe it is set to manual, change it with obtain IP address then restart your pc. After you restarted it and cant connect again. Maybe the internet connection you have is shared. Check your default gateway if it is same with your brothers default gateway.

If it cant connect again then there nothing wrong with your pc. Is the cable you bought is the proper cable to use?

There a 2 types of cables straight-trough cables and a cross over cable. Check your cable if it is straight through because you will connect your pc to the hub.

Then it requires a straight through cable.

Hope these help you.

Hello Lilmonstha69,

Sometimes such kind of problems occurred especially when you install fresh operating system. This problem is caused for many reasons. To avoid this problem you need to identify the real problems.

It can be for internet service provider problems or your pc LAN card problem if ISP is ok then set your IP address manually and then restart your computer if not ok then check your LAN card.

Thanks and Regards
