Could one (or more) of you networking guru's check out the HiJackThis thread here and tell me if the ipconfig info looks OK?

I'm used to seeing a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, is 255.255.0.0 OK? Also I note lack of a listed Default gateway - is that a problem?

Any other insight into what her problem may be would also be appreciated.

Thanks,
Derfram

255.255.0.0 is a class b network compared to a class c network of 255.255.255.0 so thats valid. When windows cant detect an ip it will assign the 169 one which is part of the class b range so thats ok. And yes, no default gatway = no internet access.

It does not seem like an ip address is being assigned though
