Firstly, what operating system are you using?
applicable for windows xp or windows 7. press Windows Key + R
select the appropriate network connection (e.g. Local Area Connection). Right click the Local Area Connection choose Properties. For windows xp, doble click Internet Protocol. For Windows 7, double click Internet protocol IPv4. choose Obtain an IP address automatically. press OK. right click again the Local area connection then choose Status. there tou can see that your computer is negotiating for an IP address from the dhcp server. if still cannot obtain an ip address, press Windows key +Run then type "services.msc". scroll down and find DHCP client. ensure that this service is running.
Please also try to check if the network you are connected does have a DHCP server.

Windows vista laptop lost connection to the internet


Start off simple. Try a different port on the router. If that doesn't work, try a new cable. If that doesn't work, go to the Device Manager in Windows. (Right-click My Computer, select Manage, go to Device Manager). Does the card look okay? Has it been disabled or need a driver update? If we're still looking at issues then I would take a look at your router security. How many DHCP licences do you allowed to be assigned? Also do you have security in place (WEP/WPA, Mac Filtering, SSID Broadcast)? If you are light on security and only have a few assignable DHCP licences, you may have neighbors leeching your internet access.

To clarify: DHCP assigns a network IP address to each device on its network. Most Linkys routers have a default of 10, you may have reduced this yourself. If you have, you've limited the # of devices allowed on the network. So if you have 3 DHCP licenses available, and a couple neighbors are leeching, your Dell may not get assigned an ip.

If you still need further help, let me know.

Wireless internet hookup


What seems to be the problem of your wireless internet?

Internet hookup


This is not the manufacturer's site, but i will try to help.
Is it your own network?
You need to make sure that the network is not protected, or you'll need the password.
Go to Start>Control Panel on your computer
Then go to Network Connections
There should be an icon for your wireless connection.
Right-click -> select Properties
In the selectbox select 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)'
Click Properties
Check if 'Obtain an IP-address automatically' and 'Obtain DNS-server' are selected
If they were not, Press <Ok> two times and try to connect to the wireless network again.

Can you also tell what IP-address you get?
Find it by going to Start > Run
Type 'cmd' without the quotation marks and press <Ok>
you get a black command box
type 'ipconfig', again without the quotation marks and press <Enter>
Please tell me the IP-address it tells you...

Hi
I am try to take a stab at answering your query.

Internet Protocol (IP) Address preceeding with "169" means your PC is not receiving IP Address "generally" from your Boradband Modem or Internet Service Provider (ISP). The PC through Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing (APIPA) is assigning itself a temporal IP address.
This conditions means either
1. Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Client service is not running properly on your PC (Unlikely)
2. There is no connection between your PC and Broadband Device or ISP wired or wirelessly (very likely)
3. DHCP Server Service is not configured or not running on Boardband device (likely) or ISP (unlikely)
4. Some firewall software when improperly configured are known to block all ports and services. This can block TCP Ports 67 and 68 used by DHCP Client/Server communication (quite likely)
Some pointers for more info;
1. Your query suggest your issues are limited to Wireless connection. Can you access Internet through wired connection? If so;
a) What Wired connection is in use? USB or Ethernet?
b) Is wired connection through same Broadband device?
c) What IP is assigned to your PC in wired connection?
d) If wired connection works, is IP assignment static or by DHCP?
e) What Boardband device is in use? In which mode is the device set to? Router/Bridge
2. If you can't connect both wired and wireless, then it is unlikely your PC hardware is at fault. Call your Broadband Provider for further help and configuration. Try entily disabling your firwall software (if installed) and test conection.
3. If you can connect through wired connection and your IP Address does not proceed with "192.168" or "172.16" then your boadband device is likely in a bridge mode. In bridge mode, the DHCP Server Service on your boardband device is disabled. Most ISPs will only assign only one IP address to a user. If an IP address has been assigned to your PC on the wired connection, then the wireless connection will not receive an IP address and therefore your PC will assign itself an IP in the range "169.254"

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?
