The problem seems to be with the Win CE DHCP only working with a router configured as 192.168.1.1. My wireless router is configured as 192.168.0.1 and it is a no go for both wireless and wired. But if I plug directly into the DSL modem that is configured as 192.168.1.1 then the netbook works. If the netbook does not find a DHCP router then the AutoIP kicks in and assigns the netbook at 169.xx.xx.xx address which is out of range of most routers. So you router will need to be configured with a LanIP address of 192.168.1.1. Hopefully you ISP can help.

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.

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.

Change modem


Hello,

First, I would try resetting the modem by unplugging for 10 seconds or so and then plugging it back in. To be on the safe side, I would also reboot computer. AFter that, I would try to see if it picks up valid ip address. If it doesn't, you may need to call your cable internet provider and perhaps get the mac address of your modem in their system (if it's not already)

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.

The LAN should not ever log off but either you are talking about the Internet, which can, microwave devices (ovens, wireless phones) that intermittently interfere or dynamic ip addressing cycles that assign you the 169.xxx.xx.x from within Windows attention deficit disorder manager. You can assure static assignments of ip addresses for your LAN (write down the ip address and default gateway when you are logged on to see what they should be) or log on to your router (Start>Run> type http://192.168.1.1 for Linksys, user name linksys, password is admin and you can configure your LAN and WAN. Select DHCP for cable modems, PPPoE for DSL or STATIC for ensuring LAN ip address assignments. ~Steve
