Whenever I try to connect I receive a 169.x.x.x Info: Intel 3945 ABG Card Dell Inspiron E1505 Linksys WRT54G Using Intel Proset Wirelessly to connect. Tried unplugging the router. Tried ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew Tried installing Intel Proset's newest software and driver. I restarted my computer and started proset. The UI was flashing rapidly and my cursor turned into a hourglass whenever it hovered over it. <-----I am extremely confused by that so I system restored to my old driver and software. DHCP Service is enabled. Other computers in network are working fine. (2) I can connect to the internet using a cable. Intel Proset/Wireless says I am connected with Excellent signal quality, however windows says I have limited or no connectivity. I am guessing that it is a driver/software problem but then there is the dilemma when I install the new Proset software/driver. Thanks for the help in advance. hello I have about the same problem I have att/dsl w/a d-link 624 ver. c in what I beleave is called linked I also run pure networks and I have 2 pc's and two laptops on but I can't get this acer or for that matter my hp laptop (my 3rd) to connect they can't even find my wireless net my hp will connect with the cat 5 but my new one (the acer) will not see either I have tried ipconfig/renew run setup wizard I seem to be going in circles come someone help

Questions to ask yourself:
- I the wifi card connecting to the routers wifi network? or your next door neighbors?
- did it connect with the correct WEP? withouot the right WEP it will not communicatwith the WAP
- is the router set to be the DHCP server? this function is normally defaulted to ON

some times though windows simply has to have its TCP stack reset after having been connected to too many different networks, especially if you are a heavy wifi user.

open a command prompt: I see you already know how.

Type this command line

netsh int ip reset <anyfilenameyoulike>.txt
the txt file will be a log file tha will be placed on your main (c:) drive after the NETSH command has run

next lets reset winsock since we are here in the command line anyhow

netsh winsock reset

if everything goes right you'll be prompted to reboot you machine.

hopefully this will solve your inability to aquire an IP address from the router.

I had usualy solved mysterious problems with other intel PRO wireless cards not authenticating, loosing signal, etc, by simply upgrading to the latest intel drivers.
Also using the Intel connection manager instead of the windows or Dell/other notebook manfucaturer's product is far more reliable.
Hope this helps.

Dell latitude E4300 having wireless connection problems and disable and enablewifi i get 169.XX.XX.XX sometimes


The 169.254.x.x IP Address is known as an APIPA address:

http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/A/APIPA.html

In your situation, it is indicating that the system is not receiving an IP address assignment from the Router.

Troubleshooting steps:
  1. power off, then power on the router and the computer, see if the system gets a valid IP address.
  2. Right click the wireless connection, click Repair
  3. Reinstall the wireless driver
  4. try a different wireless network see if wireless works on another network

Dell Inspirion E1505 internet connection problem


Have you properly entered in all of your network's info into the laptop?  Sometimes security settings can block access to the Wireless network.  Here's a quick way to diagnose network connection.  (Make sure you know the IP address of your router!)
1. open your Command Prompt
2. type in the following "ping (Router IP address example: 192.168.1.1 " after entering the following press enter.  (you should see a series of lines that say how long the packet took to make a round trip...if not, then you have no connection to the wirless network)
3. if the results of the ping test read "100% loss" you know that connection is definately not established. 
Your next course of action should be to inspect your laptop's settings and ensure that your laptop can "see" the router.  If your laptop's NIC ( Network Interface Card ) cannot detect the network it is possible that the NIC is bad or your router isn't set to "Broadcast" your SSID ( Service Set Identifier ) aka network.  this following article might be able to assit you in the troubleshooting process more throughly.  I hope this to be of some help to you!

No Internet Connection


Hi kathy

I believe you are connecting to the internet using wireless. Are you using this laptop to connect to a home wireless network or you connect using a cable. This will be a good way to analyze your problem

Post the ip address that you are getting.
You can get the ip by
start -run-type cmd enter
you will be in the black command prompt
just type ipconfig
and let me know what you get under ip address.

Also let me know the wireless router, your Internet Service Provider and also how many systems are there are at your home if you are connecting to a home wireless network.
Also let me know which is firewall or antivirus program that you have.

thank you do let me know if this works and do share your experience.

thank you

Trying to hook up lap top to wireless internet. Comcast tech says there is problem with IP# 169 which preceeds other numbers and needs to be removed for hookup. How can I accomplish this? Model #3150H


Usually you will have an IP address starting with 169 if the adapter cannot get an ip address from anywhere, it is an autmoatic IP address.

What operating system (Windows XP or 2000 or Vista) are you using?

Ip Address 169.x.x.x Wireless Internet Connection Problems 6400/E1505 Dell Laptop


when you renewed the ip address, windows assigns an ip address of 169.xxx.x.x, this your router will not be able to see. if you have enabled dhcp in the router, check that the wireless card is set to obtain an ip address automatically. If you have no luck that way, go to another pc and in the network card properties, look at the assigned ip address number that the router has given the pc, eg 192.168.2.2, if you have more than two pc you can bet that the other number assign wil be 192.168.2.3, so go to the problem pc's network card problem and and set the ip address manually to eg 192.168.2.4 and set the dns address to 255.255.255.0, save settings and try connecting again. the only other thing stopping a conection would be if the security, eg wep or wpa is enabled and the number has not been entered correctly into the network card properties.

DI-524 One wireless connection makes others not ok


This is unusual, as it seems the router is allocating two pc's the same IP address. Go into your routers settings (internet browser and type the router address, eg 192.168.1.1)' and look at Client DHCP list and look at the IP addresses that each pc has been given and see if two are the same, they should be one digit difference, that being the last. Also go into the properties of both your pc's wireless cards and ensure that they are set to obtain an ip address automatically.
