Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
okay so... my wifi connection in seriously mentally challenged.
basically, I've always had trouble using the internet in my room (the router is located downstairs while my room is upstairs, on the other side of the house). Its always been a struggle to connect, but usually I can eventually get it to work. My dad recently bought a new router, an apple router since everyone in the family has a mac, to fix the problem.
For awhile, everything was okay and everyone could use the internet just fine. But recently, the internet has stopped working in my room. I get full signal strength, but I can never get an IP address or it says I have a "self assigned IP address and can't connect to the internet". How is this possible?! Actually I dont know much about computers so maybe this is actually really normal.
Also, I've been having trouble connecting all over the house, the connection will suddenly drop and the computer will insist that I'm either using the wrong password or the connection has timed out. The connection usually comes back if I stand right in front of the damn router. If I take my mom's laptop into my room, I still lose connection, so I know its not just my computer. We both have macbook pros
I've looked online and haven't found anything useful, and I dont know if the person at the genius bar can help. This happened once before and my dad just reset the router. I dont want to just have to be constantly resetting it!
