  • Laptop home network issue

    So I logged into a spare router that was acting as a switch (DHCP turned off, on 192.168.0.* instead of my main 1.* system) to turn off its WiFi.

    I did this by going into advance settings and adding an additional gateway and IP to the 0.* network on my ethernet NIC.

    After 10 mins my connection to 1.* stops working.
    I can no longer access the router, home server or even the mining rigs I have connected to the same switch in my workshop.

    I have reset all my laptop's network settings back to original.
    I have turned everything off and on again to no avail...

    When I connect to the network now, it connects but either after a min disconnects me or when I try to RDC into a computer it kicks me off.

    Any ideas?

    Does ipconfig respond? If so, what does it show?

      Think I managed to fix it.

      Swapped out the 5 port for an 8 port and it all now works. Though I will see over the next 24-48 hours.

      Ipconfig just showed the normal stuff.
