Remote Desktop

    Now I've really fouled something up good. I decided to try just as a quick test, to unplug the netgear router and go directly to my router/modem that time Warner supplied me. Bad idea, now nothing works no matter what I do, I tried plugging it back into the netgear, but still get no incoming connection. Tried calling time Warner, they want to send a tech out. That can't be it as it was just working before I tried eliminating the router. I went through all the basics, unplugged it, reset it. Any clue what I screwed up?

    When I ran the troubleshooter, it states that the Ethernet does not have a valid IP configuration.

    are there any lights on the router/modem at all?

    Is everything plugged in good?

    If you type ipconfig /all into your command prompt what does it show?

    Yes, all the lights are lit except for the online one. Which address should I be looking at, is it the IPv4 one? If so it says 192.168.0.2

    Are you able to go to that address on your computer and set up your router information? Do you see a wireless network for it?

    Yes, I can still access the router, but I have no clue what to change in there

    The wireless network is going, I can see it on my laptop.

    If you haven't already or I just missed it, your desktop computer will need a "STATIC" ip address and not one that has been assigned by your router. Also, the account you want to use for the remote session must be password protected...hope this helps.
