Fighting with HOMEGROUP and Limited connection issues

  1. #11


    Without a default gateway this machine can't get to the internet. I suggest you look over the routers settings, most likely if you left the gateway and the subnet at default you wouldn't be having any problems. Once you start messing with different subnets and custom gateways all bets are off.

    I believe this is also why you can't change it to a private network.
