    I tried that! The strange thing is that I can be connected using another persons network but when looking at the IP address it is the same as mine? Could I have two networks or has someone taken my info and made their own? My network is locked but this one isn't!

    Are you locked out of your WIFI, meaning you don't have the encryption password, or are you locked out of your router? If you can get into your router, then just change the encryption key password for the network there and you should be good to go. :)

    Had same problem, just reset your router. You can do that by cutting the power, count to ten then plug it back in again. Should work fine after that

    The IP address that you are probably seeing is a so-called Private IP address and usually has the form 192.168.x.y. The router performs Network Address Translation (NAT) from the Internet to all the devices on your home network. Although each router will have a separate IP address, it will translate that to a Private IP address of the above form so, yes, you'll see IP addresses like this on most home or WiFi networks. No need to worry!!
