When your computer is trying to request IP address from a DHCP server but it does not see the DHCP server it will give up and make up an IP
address for itself. This IP will often look something like 169.x.x.x.
This is a fake local address that Windows assigned to your PC when it couldn't reach a DHCP server.
Make sure that your computer is connected to a network with working DHCP server.
First make sure your network connection is plugged in and working (i.e. look where the cable goes into your computer and has a green light on near it). 169's a re the windows default when no connection is available.
Then, if the cable (or wireless connection?) is OK, click on start > control panel> Netwok and internet connections>
Click on your Lan (ow WLAN?) connection and hit properties.
Navigate down to the 4th (or 5th depending) in the top box to TCP/IP and highlight it, hit properties, and select "automatically configure" for both the IP adress and DNS Servers, hit Apply, then OK, wait a few seconds and you should be good (assuming it's not actually your router handing out the "169" adress.
If all is not well, try a different network cable or port on your router, or get back with more detail.
Do you have the driver installed correctly.From a command prompt if you type ipconfig do you get a 169 .ip address if so windows is assigning a ip address to the adapter.Remove the card from the computer,Uninstall the drivers and softtware, reboot.Once windows have come up make sure the drivers and the software are uninstalled.Shut windows down again reinstall the card once windows is up reinstall the drivers and hardware.Make sure to let windows manage the adapter and not the software that came with the adapter.
Check your IP address, go to start... run... cmd... and type in ipconfig... if your ip address is 169.xxx.xxx.xxx then you need to troubleshoot on your computer.. get a local tech to help you out.. if not then the ip should be 192.168.1.xxx thats the residential gateway....
the error is telling you that its an internal network providing limited access.
go to run cmd then in the dos prompt type in ipconfig /all
see your network card's ip address. if its 169.x.x.x then thats the problem..u are not getting the ip address from your computer.
go to your network connections right click the network card then go properties in the tcp/ip area assign yourself a manual ip address of 192.168.1.xx
the xx is a number that u like 2 digits only but it can't be 1
your default gateway is your router so give it 192.168.1.1
