Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
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!
So, as you guys might know, I've been having frequent disconnects since the beginning of May. I am on a wireless network shared by 3 PCs (one desktop connected by ethernet, one desktop by wireless, and one laptop by wireless.)
Reformatted all computers
Bought a new router
Leased a new modem
Replaced the ethernet and modem cables
Had a Comcast technician come and look
Had Comcast literally dig up my street and put down all new wires
Now I'm realizing that it might be an IP conflict. Whenever I disconnect (or at least, when I can remotely reconnect without having to power cycle the modem and router), it says that my IP is 0.0.0.0 and it only reconnects after the step "reconfiguring IP". What I did was to stop my PCs from using dynamic IPs (I believe the laptop needs to use one, right?)
The (current) IPs for the PCs are:
[IPs removed for security]
Please note that the ethernet PC gets disconnected too, not just the wireless and laptop.
