Hello,

I recently had to to change my IP address to static to allow another user on my workgroup access a shared file. Since doing so I can no longer access the internet. I am on XP home and Exploer 7.
I am sure that there is a simple answer to this but I am baffled.
Any suggestions?

hi,

you need to renew the ip address.

go to start menu > run

type cmd and hit enter

then type ipconfig/renew and press enter.

your ip would be renewed and you should be able to access internet.
