1. the router is configured to hand-out IP-addresses in a limited range, e.g., 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.110, namely 11 different IP-addresses. When the 12th computer asks for an IP-address, there is none available. Remedy: configure the router to use a larger range of IP-addresses.
2. when an IP-address is handed-out, attached is a 'TTL' ("time to live") value, indicating how long the IP-address remains valid, e.g., 10 minutes or 100 minutes or 1 day or 1 week. If the TTL is too large, then each computer "hogs" the IP-address (even after being shut-off in mid-afternoon).
Remedy: configure the router to use a shorter TTL. Don't worry: when a TTL value drops to 50% of its original value, on a specific computer, the computer will "renew" the lease.
No It's not virus .
It is issue of ip address in your computer.
You can set ip address with 2 method static and DHCP.
For DHCP you need to enable it in router.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Then click on DHCP and enable so you can get ip from router.Enable "ip get automatic in network adapter tcp ip property.
If you want to ser static ip in tcp ip then gateway ip set to router ip if your router ip is 192.168.1.1 then your computer ip is 192.168.1.3 subnetmask 255.255.255.0 and gateway as 192.168.1.1
Then you can access internet
Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
This error comes when there is same ip address in 2 computers. So make sure in networks there are not same ip address. You can also solve this issue with DHCP . Enable DHCP in router. For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. . Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Then set "ip get automatic " in network adapter property. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Normally a router is set up to issue IP addresses and computers are set up to request IP addresses (via DHCP). Occasionally one half of the pair decides not to play ball - more often than not it's the router - and so the computer ends up with a 'self-assigned IP address' - generally starting with a 169 instead of the usual 192 or 10. When this happens the computer will never talk to the router so you never get your connection.
As a rule, removing the power from the router for about 5 minutes and then powering back up and waiting for all the lights fixes it. However, it doesn't always work. When that happens I generally reboot the computer and if that doesn't sort it I go into the network control panel and set the computer with a manual IP address. Say the router's IP address is 192.168.0.1, it set the manual one on the computer to 192.168.0.20 (and make sure that the subnet - that's the 255.255.255.0 - setting is the same as the router's).
See how you get on and post back.
You must ensure that you have enabled the router as a DHCP server and the client PC network connection is set up to "obtain an IP address automatically". If the computer is not obtaining a valid IP address from the DHCP server (i.e. the router) you will get the limited or no connectivity error. You can easily check to see if you have a good IP address by opening a CMD prompt window and running ipconfig.exe. Generally, the WBR-1310 will have assigned an IP address like 192.168.0.xxx. If you have an IP address like 169.254.xxx.xxx you router is not assigning your computer a valid IP address. Powering down the PC and/or the router will usually fix this, but not always. There are other, more compliated, steps that can resolve the problem if the above steps do not work.
just right click on your local connection on the desktop by the clock and click on "repair". this should clear the cache and renew the IP addy and DNS for yur connection. OR
Follow these steps to quickly release and/or renew the Internet Protocol (IP) address of a computer running Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows NT.
Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
Click Run... on this menu.
If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.
Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.
To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically
This is just a try. Find out the Default Gateway on the other computers. If they are using a static IP then you need to get on. At someone else's computer click Start and Run and enter Cmd and click OK.
Now type in ipconfig /all. Look for IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers. Write it all down. Then find an available IP address by using the Ping command.
In the same Window, type in ping and the IP Address of the computer you are at. That's just to show you what it looks like when you find an IP already taken. You'll see "reply from..." with the address you just pinged. Now ping again but change the last octal in the IP (the last number) in the IP address to something under 256. And ping again. Do this until you get a message "request timed out". You've just found an available IP.
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
