I'm about to go insane, seriously i think i'm about to get my bat and beat the hell out of my desktop.
Recently my desktop has been, how should i put it, a pain in the ass. The internet will just stop working, instantly. I've only noticed it happen at night, and tonight it's particularly irritating because i was half way through a download. Anyways, it still says it's connected, so i try to repair it and it says, "The following steps of the repair operation failed: Renewing the IP address. Please contact your network administrator or ISP." It does this at least once a week and usually more often. Now this can not be a normal thing. Usually it just fixes itself about 2-3 days after it happens, but i don't want to wait that long, and i would really like to fix the problem. Can someone help? Thanks.
