new apartment internet problem
Hi, I just moved to my new apartment and I should have internet but....
I'm presently on a old computer (running Window XP). I tryed to take the ethernet wire from this computer and put it on my laptop (Hardy Heron) put it doesn't work.(even if I reboot my laptop)
The problem is I do not know what is on the other side of the wire. Probably a router or a modem. I cannot acces the room where the 'source of the internet' is but, I can shutdown the electricity there.
On the computer running on windows it says...
IP address: 192.168.1.103
(the computer is in french so this is my translation)
If you have suggestions, I'm open to suggestions
