I was at my brothers house over the weekend, playing about with his pc and doing updates however when doing the updates the downloads froze.
now i don't know if it is because of the above why he has no internet connection now.
one of the updates was for the ethernet card. think it installed properlu but not 100% sure.
he's on NTL cable something or other and it says unable to renew ip address, could not connect to dhcp.
system restore wasn't set up on his pc so can't do that, and when trying to uninstall and re-install it it gives the same message.
sorry if this message is a bit confusing to read, will be because of how i've typed it (hungover - 2 nights worth of alcohol in Yarm)
