Windows 10: Default gateway not available

    Default gateway not available

    I've searched for hours for help on this issue and can't seem to solve my limited internet issue.

    First it was showing up: IP not configured correctly

    I input the following (which I found off another random site so don't even know if it's right)

    Default gateway:

    Alt DNS:

    Prior to this it was reading something like 164.... Which I saw on another website that this had to be incorrect and it required updating..

    Now I receive an error saying the default gateway is not available?

    From device manager I've searched and all drives are up to date

    Ive got Windows 10, 64-bit operating system

    I'm no IT guru.. but I can follow instructions so if you could dum it down for me and help that would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to the forums. What type router are you using? Try using DHCP. Try going into the router settings and make sure DHCP server is enabled.
