So what happened exactly? lol My computer was accidentally put into bridge mode with my gateway.
You will need to supply some details, including what your network really looks like before anyone can do anything other than offer wild guesses. -- We can never have enough of nature. We need to witness our own limits transgressed, and some life pasturing freely where we never wander.
I had a different IP address, kept D/Cing, couldn't access my modem page, Netgear Genie kept popping up new IP addresses constantly in the 71.--- range, I was connected to an new network called "Network 2", Netgear Genie listed the main thing I was connected to as a 71. IP range device.
