DHCP issues

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Just tried connecting a computer to my network and I get a "limited or no connectivity" message. ipconfig reveals that my IP is 169.254.230.45. Learning from a quick google that this a 169.254.x.x IP only occurs when DHCP is enabled, but no DHCP server is found, I go to my other computer and check, and sure enough, DHCP is enabled and I am getting a proper 169.168.x.x address. I check my router just to make sure, and the DHCP server is enabled. I do a power cycle just to check, but no go. OS is xp. Any suggestions, or any more info needed?

Network adapter set to Obtain IP Automatically? If it's set to a static IP then it's probably set to an IP that's already been reserved for another computer.

Assuming everything is hooked up correctly to the router, DHCP enabled on the router, adapters/NIC set to obtain IP address automatically, you should get an IP. You can try opening a command prompt and type

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

This will release the IP address assigned to your computer from the DHCP server and request a new one.

release and renew generally works if for whatever reason the DHCP server didn't respond the first time.
