That means you're not obtaining an IP address from your router or cable modem or device that's supposed to be assigning you an address. Reboot all devices on your network. If that fails, just post more information on your network setup.

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.

I have a netgear wgr614 v7 and i have only the power light on (blinking like 3 times per second) there is something i can do to fix this problem? .. i have do nothing to it.


If your router is still accessible you can perform a firmware update.Please follow the instructions below .
Note : please do this on a computer that is directly connected to your router thru an ethernet cable.

1.click start , run , and type on the run box, cmd.
2. You will see a black screen or the dos prompt, enter on the blinking cursor the word ipconfig. Then press enter.
3.Look for the ip address and default gateway. If your default gateway and ip address starts with 192.168.x.x. that means your router is still giving proper address to your computer.
if the ip address is 169.xx, you may need to reset your router for 30 seconds and then check again if the ip address is the same by typing ipconfig. 169.xx ip address is an invalid ip, you wont be able to access the web interface if your getting an invalid ip address.
4.close the dos prompt. Open your browser and enter http://routerlogin.com
5. it will prompt you for a username and password.
username is admin
password is password
6.click on the router upgrade and proceed on updating your unit to the latest software.
you can visit http://www.netgear.com to look for the latest firmware available for your router. Please make sure to select the exact model number. updating the router to a wrong version will brick it.

Please rate me if the solution is helpful

I cant seem to figure out what is the IP address for my MSI RG60SE router.....


By default ip address is 192.168.1.1
or
192.168.0.1

But if your ip is different and if in your router DHCP is enabled then you have to check your computer ip address with which your router is connect.
Go to start menu then type in run "ipconfig /all"
then check gateway ip it is your router ip.
Also you can check your ip wtih phone reciver connect your phone receiver to router with phone line jack.
Then press * so you can listen configuration.
Let me kow if you need more assistanse.
Thanks.

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.

Cannot connect second computer to my networn


I have listed several things here that you can use to find the problem. Sorry this is so long...network problems can be very tedious to find.

First check your version of Windows:
Double click on "My Computer", then click on "View System Information" to make sure you have at least Service Pack 1...or better yet....Service Pack 2.

Next check your Windows XP network settings:
Click on Start....Control Panel....Network Connections...Local Area Connection...Properties(button). Scroll down the list to find Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click on it to highlight it. Now click the properties button below the list. You should now be able to click the small buttons to select both of the "Obtain....automatically" choices for IP address and DNS server. Click on "OK" to close each of the windows.

Now you can test your computer to see if it is "talking" to the router: Click on Start...Run...and type "cmd" in the small box and click "OK". This will open a black command window where you tell the computer what to do. Type the command "ipconfig" and press return (enter). This will list your ip address, subnet mask, and default gateway. Make a note of the default gateway address so you can use it for the next test. If the IP address begins with 192.168...then your computer is probably communicating with the router okay. If your IP address is blank or starts with 169...then your network connection to the router may NOT be working.

The final test!!! Use the default gateway address from the last step to do a "ping" test. In the black command window...type "ping" followed by the default gateway address. For example: IF the default gateway happens to be 192.168.1.1....then type the ping command this way: ping 192.168.1.1

If the result is a list of replies from the gateway address...great!! Your network connection is working. If the ping command results in a list of "request timed out", or something else, then your network connection needs more help.

The ultimate test is to try using the Internet with your browser.
If this works, next try typing your gateway address into the brower address bar. It should connect you to the router setup page.(?)

Let me know the results of each of these tests, and I'll be happy to assist you further, if needed.

Make sure that you have still a valid ip address on command prompt. Go to start - click run - type cmd (open box) - click ok - type ipconfig after the cursor - hit enter and check ip address. If you are getting an ip address of 0.0.0.0 or ip starting with 169.254....then that is the reason. Unplug and replug router to regain the ip. also check firewall and proxy server. they should be disabled
