    Hi,
    When your router is working, what Ip address do you have?
    And the 169.... ip address, does it starts like that or it goes something like 192.168.1.xxx ?

Hi Pzarek,

The first thing that comes to mind is that your Linksys modem is using the same IP address as the router and it's causing a conflict. The quickest way to find out if there is a conflict is to get into the administration setup on the router and manually change the IP address of the router itself (currently it's most likely 192.168.1.1 - change it to 192.168.1.250). Linksys has most of its devices that provide dynamic IPs set to 192.168.1.1 by default so I would suggest that.

To log into the router (assuming you have your computer plugged into the router):

Bring up Internet Explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 into the address bar.

When it asks for a username/password, type in 'admin' for the username and 'admin' for the password (without the quotes).

You can change the IP address from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.250 on the first page that comes up.

If you're unable to access the setup, make sure the router is powered up and hold in the Reset button on the back for 30 full seconds. At that point the information provided will allow you to access it.

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.

When I turn on the wireless on my Vaio laptop running vista, the wireless network I having running through a linksys (wrt54g) router stops working.. sometimes after restarting the router it will work for...


Hello,

The Problem you are having comes up because you probably put on your router before putting on your Computers, including your laptop.

What I would advise you to do is that, always try to put on your Computers first, before turning on your router.

This will make your router to dynamically distribute IP Adresses to your computers and therefore reduce conflict.

And if at any time, you make a mistake of putting on you router before your PC, just switch off your router for 2 Minutes and switch it back on.

It will enable your router to renew IP Adresses to all your Computers without having conflict.

Then Always remember to make your Computers Obtain IP Address Automatically, and your Router Should be set to use DHCP.

This Solution is an exact solution that I used in my office last week, so its proved to work.

Hope this helps you out.

Keep me posted about the problem.

Goodluck

I have an i touch and i cant go to the internet


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.

Loosing connection frequently


Your computer has an IP addy and your router has its own IP addy. Try uninstalling the router and its software, reboot, and reinstall everything, this may clear up the conflict. If not you will have to go into the router(via the internet) and reconfigure the router.
