To plug and unplug

This morning, I got to the office early. I was hoping to get some files online. I was expecting some emails. BUT I had no internet connection. Actually, the computers in the library had no internet connection. I was almost in panic mode but I thought that the guy from the IT department might be early. He wasn't. He is sick so he is not here today.

That was the moment I started panicking.

Anyway, Trebs was online so I sent him IMs through Yahoo! IM and he suggested some things I could do to (hopefully) make it work. I have tried running CMD and typing ipconfig /renew but it didn't work either. So what did he tell me?

To switch the hub on and off.

It worked! Why? Sir Lawrence told me that it actually forced the renewal of the IP add.

Something new I learned today^_^
