Hey again guys.

 

My laptop was connected to my network fine I then closed the laptop and put it into sleep mode. When I opened the laptop COMODO popped up saying Network alert and to set a preference to a new IP on my network. 

 

Was just wondering if the IP is an internal IP as i think it is but I just want to be sure.

 

here are the details..

 

 

Network Alert

 

Wireless: 169.254.196.58/24

 

 

I read somewhere it's something to do with a DHCP or sometihng

 

Thanks,

Craig

Yes this is quite normal and nothing to worry about.   If you don't want the notification you can deselect "Enable automatic detection of private networks" in Firewall Settings.   I usually do this when at home.

FYI: 169.254.196.58/24 is an APIPA IP address (Automatic Private IP Addressing)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APIPA

 

This can happen when you get no IP address from the DHCP server.
