If the IP address is starts with 169.xx.xx.xx then it means that the router (its called the DHCP Dynamic Host Protocol) is not working. It is suppose to give you an IP address automatically. So it is a hardware problem with your router, specifically the DHCP. It needs to be replaced.

When i try to connect any kind of laptop to my, belkin 397f but it will only say limited acess with no internet but it will let a wii, dsi, and ipod touch connect


Check these options :
- Check that you ebtred the Wireless key correctly.
- Check that a DHCP server is configured. otherwise make your laptop ip addresse the same as the Wii ip adresse, just change the last number by increasing 100, ane make the other parameters the same, (mask, gateway, dns server). it has to be only one different ip adresse for each equipement.
- Check the laptops doesn't have a fixed ip addresse.
- Check that your Berlkin is not protected with MAC addresses.

Hello, my computer has an 169 ip address, i've tried to renew the ip it wont renew it, but other computer works fine on the same router, any suggestions how can i get rid of that 169 ip address? thanks


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.

The IP address is auto assigned. If you're having trouble with connecting on it, Try disconnecting it from the internet, then reconnecting after a minute or two, it may fix your problem.

Change modem


Hello,

First, I would try resetting the modem by unplugging for 10 seconds or so and then plugging it back in. To be on the safe side, I would also reboot computer. AFter that, I would try to see if it picks up valid ip address. If it doesn't, you may need to call your cable internet provider and perhaps get the mac address of your modem in their system (if it's not already)

Cant connect to http://192.168.0.50


what you need to do here is manually set your static IP adress, I had this problem as well and I know what to do.
you need to go to your network connections ( Controll panel>network connections) in xp (Controll panel>network and sharing center then left hand it sais: change adapter settings )
then rightclick your wireless connection and look at it's properties. then you need to click on Internet Protocol, for vista/windows 7 it's internet protocol 4 which you need to select. once selected click on properties just a little below.
there you'll see the setting is on: obtain Ip automaticly, but you'll have to choose ( use the following IP adress ) and enter

IP adress: 192.168.0.99
subnet mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.0.50
once entered press OK and now go to your browser and type the routers adress (192.168.0.50) in my case and now you should be in your modems setup menu.
once changed your setting you need to change your IP back to auto obtain IP adress. or your internet still won't work

169 is an internal IP. If you are not already, try a hard wired connection to the router. If this fails, you will need to get in touch with D-link.
