      Now that I am back to school and my newly built desktop is working well (thanks to BRealistic) I am having weird network issues in my apartment.

      First of all I have a wireless router in my room connected to a wall Ethernet port. This functioned well all last year. Now the router won't receive an IP address from that socket. Plugged it into a different one in the appartment and it worked just fine.

      What do I tell the moron repair guys when I submit my work order, or how can I troubleshoot this myself?

      Thanks very much!

      Tell them that they disconnected it at a splitter. I had an apartment in an old farmhouse that was converted over to two apartments, upstairs and downstairs. The cable went in the cellar and split four ways. Three went to three separate rooms in my apartment and the guy downstairs (unknown to me at the time) was stealing the cable signal from the people who lived there prior to me. I moved my service over and when TWC guy came over, they shut off the thief and two of my rooms and locked up the splitter. I had the TWC guy come back over and reconnect my other two rooms. The guy downstairs moved out and the next people moved in and another TWC guy came over, disconnected one of my rooms and hooked the new tenant downstairs back up. I caught the guy before he left and told him to quit screwing with my cable. Every time the tenant downstairs moved in or out, TWC unhooked the splitter and shut off a room or two in my apartment. I bet the same thing has happened there.

      Is there a light when you plug in? If not, try a different cable... if it still doesn't work, tell them the network port in your room is not working.

      If it is, tell them when you plug into the wall you have link but get no IP address.

      Yes I do get a light when I plug it in. It's not the cable because it works in other ports around the house.
