How to find a IP address for my emachines laptop


go to start -- run and type in CMD
hit enter to open a black command prompt window

type in "ipconfig" without the quotes and hit enter. This will give you your IP address.

If you need the IP address from your provider that you are using out on the public internet, just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and it will tell you what your external public IP address is.

Both My Inspiron and linksys will not connect to my ISP. They say both are receiving an invalid IP address! I have used all trouble shooting techniques including trying to release and reset! Even went as...


Step 1: Plug the computer (ethernet wired) directly into the modem. Power cycle the modem and when all the light come on you should have internet. If not call your ISP to trouble shoot.

At this point we should be able to determine if it is a PPPoe connection (needs username and password to connect) or if it logs in automaticly.

Step 2: Plug the router back into the modem and the computer plugged wired (ethernet) to the router. Remove power from both the modem and the router. Plug the modem back in first, once all the lights are on plug in the router. Try to connect.

Step 3: Log in to the router via its IP address (normally 192.168.1.1), if no one has reset the user name password it should admin for both. If it has been reset, you will need to know what the user name and password are to continue.

Step 4: Under setup if in step 1 you found you needed PPPoe, then you need to set that under the setup tab. Make sure you use the user name and password provided to you by your ISP. If you dont need PPPoe then make sure this is set to obtain IP automaticly.

Step 5: save settings. Once the router restarts, try to connect again.

If these step do not work, let me know:

1. who is your ISP?
2. What modem do they use?
3. What is your IP address when plugged directly into the modem?
4. What is your IP address when plugged into the router?

I will be around for about 1 more hour, its 2PM central time now.

My newly purchased dell inspiron 560 will not connect to the network due to "an invalid ip address". 10 other computers are working fine on the network. Any solutions?


You will need to manually configure the IP for your Local Network Connection: right click on the notification icon, go to Properties, double click Internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Or click properties, click Use the following IP address and input the correct data according with the settings in your network - change just the IP first.

I have a dell 2400 and it is giving me an invalid IP address 169.254 PleASE help!


An IP address that begins with 169 usually means you are having some temporary problem with your local (nearest) router or modem finding your IP address automatically from your ISP. If you're at home (nobody else is on the network you use to get out to the 'net), then it's OK to change things around for your own sake. I'm also assuming you're on a broadband network, and not dial-up, or another type of network that may require special IP address settings. If you are, or don't know, it doesn't hurt to call them and find out.
No matter what internet browser you like to use, Windows Internet Explorer's settings control how you 'get out' to the 'net. So, do the following:
  1. Check your Windows Internet Explorer Options to make sure they're set to automatically find an IP address for you. Open 'Internet Explorer'--click on the 'Tools' button, then click on the bottom item 'Internet Options'; once it opens, then click on the 'Connections' tab, then click down where it says 'LAN settings'. Your 'Local Area Network' settings window should pop up. Just make sure 'Automatically Detect Settings' is the ONLY thing checked. AGAIN, IF YOU'RE IN AN OFFICE ENVIRONMENT, DON'T DO THIS, CALL YOUR OFFICE NETWORK TECHNICIAN! Sorry for the CAPS, but that's very important, because it's normal, in fact very important, that the settings any local office net-tech has put there remain the same--and they're often quite different, so he's the authority, not me!
  2. Accept the 'Automatic' settings by clicking 'OK', then 'OK' again, in standard 'Windows' fashion.
  3. Power off your router and modem by unplugging the power cable (not the network cable) from the back of each);
  4. Wait about 10-20 seconds, then power on your router first, waiting a few seconds, then plug in your modem. Let each find their respective IP addresses automatically.
  5. Close out of Internet Explorer, then wait until your router and/or modem LEDs are all on and blinking randomly.
  6. Re-open Internet Explorer. You should be up and running.
Hope this helps.

My laptop will not connect to my Internet. It says it's connected to an unknown network with an invalid Ip address. I don't know how to kix it at this point.


You must be connected wireless. I believe your in 1 of 2 situations.
First of all, when you connect to a wireless network, the network assigns you an ip address. When it's YOUR network you already have an ip address and if someone connects to you they would get that.
Either you have a wireless network that is un-secure and someone else nearby is connected to it. Or someone else in the area has an unsecured network and you have mistakenly connected to them.
You must setup your router properly with a network name (SSID) behind a secure firewall with WPA-2 security. WEP security can be hacked very easily.
Go to the website of the router you have and look for setup features or go to the manual. It's really not that hard if you have the time to do it and know one bothers you during it.
You can also go to,
http://www.youtube.com/ In the "Youtube" search , Type "wireless router setup" and chose from the drop-down menu or type in yours.
