My lap top frequently cannot connect to the internet and I get a message saying that it has an invalid IP address or sometimes the computer doesn't know what the problem is. It seems to come and go....I can go for weeks , months with no issues then suddenly I get the problem multiple times a day!! Sometimes I can get around it by restarting my computer but that has been working less and less. It has been getting worse lately and has now started to happen on my editing desk top computer as well. I am pretty sure it is not a problem with my router or cables or any hardware. It is a software problem. Anyone know anything about this PITA problem or have a fix?
ps about 12 months ago an IT capable friend changed the IP address on my laptop which worked temporarily but it started to happen again after a few weeks.
