Question: I'm at a university campus to start off. Now, my wifi is working perfectly. I'm currently using my school's wifi to do all my internet stuff for the moment. However, initially, I were using my ethernet cable for internet. For the last 3 months, my cable internet were working just fine. But this afternoon, my internet suddenly stopped and I thought my school's internet was down. But after checking with my roommate and a neighbor, both of whom are using the ethernet cable and have fine connection, I figures that maybe I needed to restart my PC. But even after a restart and troubleshooting my internet connection using Windows, I still cannot get an internet connection with my cable. My wifi's fine, which is a little weird. From my network center screen, I seems to be able to connect to my school's cable network, but the line between that network and the internet is "x-ed" out. That's odd, considering my roommate's ethernet cable connection is just fine. Also, after doing a troubleshooting, I found the error of that my "Local Area Network does not have a valid IP configuration"? Hm, I have an address starting 169.254 but no IP address under the Gateway, DNS, and WINS server. Is that abnormal, or is that normal given my cable connection isn't working? Resolved for now, thanks for the infos all. My ethernet connection went back to normal, don't know why or how, but I'm not complaining really.
