Can you give us more information about your setup? Are you trying an ethernet cable? or are you on WIFI?

Have you checked your router's DHCP settings, to verify that DHCP is turned on.

Ip address in invalid on windows vista


All we need to do is to reset the router for about a minute, if we are still getting invalid IP which is 169.x.x.x then we need to temporarily assign an ip address on the computer.

How to assign IP address:
Windows XP
Step 1: Click Start, then Control Panel.
Step 2: When the Control Panel window opens, double-click Network Connections.
Step 3: Right-click Local Area Connection, then click Properties.
Step 4: When the Local Area Connection Properties window appears, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then Properties.
Step 5: Change the option from Obtain an IP address automatically to Use the following IP address and enter the following:

Make sure the IP Address you'll be assigning the computer has the same first three numbers as the Default Gateway and the last number can be any number between 2 and 99. In this example, our Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1, so the IP address that should be used must start with 192.168.1. In this example, the IP address that we'll assign is 192.168.1.50.
  • IP: "192.168.1.50"
  • Subnet Mask: "255.255.255.0"
  • Default Gateway: "192.168.1.1"
After assign static IP then click OK.

Step 6: If we are not getting any response from the router(like pinging the ip address of the router) then possible product is defective.

Wireless router is connecting to a 169 ip address instead of a 192 ip address. I know it's an issue regarding the DHCP server but it's not making any since, since I've done ipconfig /release, renew and it...


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.

Cant go online with my dell insperation 1000 it says low or no connectivity was wondering if there was a way to do a system restore to solve the problem ..getting real frustrated


Sure you can try system restore and restore it to the day before the problem occurred but if it has been a while then it is possible that there may not be a restore point available to restore it to
And if that is the case then open "network connections" in the control panel and "right click" your connection that says limited or no connectivity and select "status" from the drop down menu then click the "support" tab on top and where it says "IP Address" look to see if it starts with a 169.xxx.xxx.xxx number and if it does start with 169 then that means that your computer was unable to acquire an IP address from your router or modem and it assigned itself a default machine address of 169.xxx.xxx.xxx (xxx is just space filler for numbers they could be different numbers) And so if it does say 169 then click the repair button and it will try to acquire a new address and if it is still unable to acquire an address and you end up with a 169 number again then if you have a router go over to the router and unplug the power cord for 10 seconds and plug it back in and then click repair again and it should work.

Most routers assign an IP address that starts with a 192.168

if you don’t have a router and your modem is plugged directly into your computer then try unplugging the modem and plugging it back in but wait for the modem to initialize (boot-up) all the way (you will know when all of the lights on the modem are on) before clicking repair button.

if none of the above helps then let me know and ill take you to the next step in fixing the problem

hi there,
if your computer has an ip address starting from 169.xxx.xxx.xxx then that is an invalid ip address... refer to computer vendor for another nic card.

Your ip address can be found by accessing the command prompt..
eg in XP
Start> Run> type in the run box "cmd" in the black dos window type in "ipconfig" press enter.

this will give out ip address, subnet mask and the defualt gateway.

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.
