DHCP server is my Belkin54g router OS on PC is windows xp home
i can't get an ip address from my network on one laptop.
The event viewer says: Your computer has automatically configured the IP address for the network card with network address 0014a485c5e3. The IP address being used is 169.254.125.187 My network is configured as 192.168.x.x
How do I get the network card to give up this address so it will find my network ip.
The problem is that the laptop is not connecting to the router. If it doesn't get a legitimate connection, it won't give you an IP address. The problem could be that the router has MAC address filtering turned on (a
stupid nuisance, since it is trivially bypassed), or that it is using WEP or WPA and you haven't correctly put in the passcode for the connection.2003 sbs is my server but i do not have the dns or dhcp running yet as i want to solve this issue first
i checked the router and mac filtering in not enabled
