Re: Does anyone know what happened here??

Go to Start -->? Run --> CMD --> Type in: ipconfig /all

I will bet the IP address is a default IP and not a IP that is on the network. Not sure how you get IP addresses but either something on the PC is preventing from getting an IP (bad WEP/WPA password/bad hardware or something like that - maybe OS related) or the device giving out the IPs is not communicating with the other devices.

Not sure how to troubleshoot the cell connection to know if that is the issue or something after the phone.

Everything is set to DHCP and everything I use is automatic because I use this computer on alot of different wi-fi networks for the job... It all of a sudden started doing this... As you see it's currently connected? Apparently something is broke...

Edit: Device Manager doesn't show anything wrong with anything, and the LAN connection works... When I re-enable the wireless it connects fine to the home network but still won't connect to either of the phones...

S3 still gives me limited connection error and this ip and such
Actually googled this ipconfig issue and this is a known thinkpad issue for the power save shutting off the LAN adapter and not responding to the ipconfig...etc. Anyways, they both connect to my friends laptop but this is what I get on this one...
