I've been using Virgin Broadband since it's inception with very little trouble.
Lately, on a pc directly wired to the router I keep getting the message "network change detected" and no internet access using any browser. Tried all the usual suspects including winsock, netsh int ip resets, ipconfig release and renew, DNS flush. Same result.
Disconnected LAN cable and tried wireless. Same thing.
All other devices work fine: another PC, laptop, phones, tablets, iPad.
Any ideas? I've tried all suggestions on the net apart from hitting it with a hammer.
OK I'm 81 years old but still got most of my marbles so I can implement any tech solutions offered!
This sounds very mysterious and it looks like you've pretty much exhausted potential remedies. The only thought I have is maybe reserve an IP address against the mac address of the pc in your hub/router.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop with regards to your issues!
I am pleased to hear that you managed to resolve your issues by changing the DNS settings to match that of Google! This is great, I hope other customers with similar issues will benefit from your work around.
Just remember, should you require any assistance in future then post back here on the forums and we'll gladly take a look at things from here for you.
