    In hind sight, I was pretty dumb for what I did. With access to a dedi and a vps, I chose to scrape 1/2M proxies last night before going to bed on my desktop. When I went to check them today, the weirdest thing happened. I don't have internet access to anything at all but my skype. I'm writing this from the VPS. I've tried everything, DNS flush, manual IP, etc. Ipconfig says I don't have an ip address now. I've disabled my antivirus, my firewalls, and all proxies. Does anyone know how to fix this?

    I use a wireless usb if that helps. I've unplugged it and turned off computer for 2 hours too, but that didn't do anything either. I can't even access team viewer.

    It's definitely time to give the good ol ISP a call. I have Comcast and I remember ages ago the same thing happened to me, I didn't have an IP address and couldn't make any address resolve.

    Talked to Comcast on the phone and they fixed things over on their end by remotely resetting everything on my modem/router.

    Before you call your net provider, shut down everything between you and the cables out... your cable modem, router, computer... whatever you have in house.

    Then turn them on in the order from 'outside in' (the closest thing to the outide connection first) and then move step by step until you get to your computer, letting each one come all the way through it's self test before you turn on the next item.

    For me, it would be turn on my Cox modem, then my wireless router and then one of my computers. If that doesn't work, then it's time to call your ISP.

    Oh... and when you shut then down, give them a minute before you start turning them back on...

    Let us know if this works or what the solution ends up being.

    Good luck!
