Cannot release/renew ip address
I am having some issues, which started off as issues with my router, and have evolved into issues with renewing my ip address.

I was having some basic internet connectivity issues, so I rebooted my router which is now showing a generic "linksys" unsecured broadcast.

When my laptop is connected to my router via an ethernet cord I am able to access the internet.

When I try to access the internet using the wireless connection it connects just fine, and for a while I was able to access the internet with it, but now it says "local only" and I cannot get on the internet wirelessly.

Anyway, here is the issue I am having. I was not able to access my router settings using the 192.168.1.1 address. I found using ipconfig that my ip address may not have been in the correct range to access this. So when I tried running ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew this is the error I am getting

"An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-interface 1: The system cannot find the file specified"

This is where I am stuck.

Firefox 3.6.8 is out. Yes it only seems like yesterday when you installed FF 3.6.7 (it was for me). The release notes say a stability issue has been fixed in this release. , (Fri, Jul 23rd) Steve Security News 0 07-24-2010 00:10
