    I use google crome and I tried the 8.8.8.8 but was unable to reconize and I don't use comcast so I kinda go lost at that point.

    i double clicked on that protocal 4 and ALL the boxes are empty.. and the two radio buttons say 'obtain an IP address automatically' and 'obtain DNS server address automatically'. What do i do? I am new to windows 10 and have spent two weeks so far changing all the privacy issues with windows 10 etc. I have ethernet, and i do not know what that is, being used to LAN on windows xp. the ethernet is set to public and i do not like the idea of that. i see you have your ethernet set to private. what is the difference? I have the wifi disabled cos i do not like wifi and i found when i just had it turned off / disconnected microsoft would turn it on on the sly.. :/ Please let me know. thank you for your video! I was watching a good video suggesting comoda secure DNS.

    Mr. McMillen, I have a RCA Windows 10 Tablet and I have a WIFI Address the will not connect to the Internet. I'm not great with terminology. So, my Tablet will not release will the router IP Address. All other WIFI's in the house work fine. I'm on my desktop now and the IP Address is the same as the Tablet address, but will not connect. Can you tell me if you already have a YouTube video that will walk me thru changing the address on the router?
