Question about Computers & Internet
Windows XP on Lenovo laptop (T60p and T42p)
-DHCP wasn't giving address to connect to Internet
-Did every possible thing to fix it (checked firewalls; drivers; disabled, enabled, etc)
-At one point I saw error 031 -- relates to DHCP connection
-Only solution I had was to reset the DSL router (turn off/on)
Question is why did I have to reset the router?
Note: Unable to do an "IPCONFIG/RELEASE *" -- it had given a 169.x..x.x address.
If this is a DSL Gateway Router, check the settings on the modem and make sure that the DHCP server is enabled.
it woould be of great help if you could provide the exact model number of the Netopia modem so that I could check if there is configuration page which you can access and check the settings..
