Hi all, Hope This is in the right Spot
Win XP
Problem:
I recieve a error message bubble on My Network/Internet Connection Icon that Says: "Limited or No Conncectivity. You may not be able to access the Internet or some network sources. This problem occured becasue the network did not assign a network address to the computer"

My network Card is a Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller (I think)
When it Automatically Assigns an IP i get
Ip : 169.254.142.244
subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
It Sends out Packets of Data's but does not recieve them.

My Computer is the only one on the network with this problem.

If you want any more Info about My Network that may assist you in helping me to solve my problem, just ask.

So can Anyone Help?

it is not a problem :thumbsup: . just assign a IP address for your computer
(e.g. 192.168.1.20) and subnet mask (255.255.0.0) . your system
also guides if you click on the "Limited or No Conncectivity" balloon .

if it still says that, Check to make sure you dont have two computers with the same name / ip assigned to them.
go into cmd prompt and type in the following and give them a few min in between:

ipconfig /release


ipconfig /renew


Also try restarting your Modem + Router + computer

let me know if this gets you any were

Check your device manager make sure your not missing any drivers, Try to plug the computer directly into the modem.
bypass any routers. Reboot a few times. if all fails call your ISP and have them release and renew your ip.
