Sorry for the re-post but i didnt get any help the last time ,this time i have a comodo firewall report blocking the iana ip.

 

Here is the question: I had a problem with my network adapter not getting the ipv4 ip address from my router every time i closed my computer with my network adapter disabled ,after opening my pc if i would re-enable my adapter i would find a IANA ip present in ipv4 instead of my routers address (i checked the address and it belonged to iana's official address blocks) .It didnt matter if it was the wifi adapter or lan ,the same thing was happening for both adapters.So the only way i could get my routers ipv4 address was if i had my adapter enabled before shutdown, not disabled .I didnt have this problem with any of my other laptops or phones or etc connected to my network. I Hope i explained the issue i had clearly enough.

 

The problem seemed to have disappeared completely after i restored my system from a backup i did a month or two ago but it came back ,i got it again after 2/3 , i have to say i have some windows services and firewall services disabled ,but i only disabled the ones that were unnecessary ,can that be the cause for it?How can i solved this?

Here is the comodo firewall report:

It is an apipa address

http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/A/APIPA.html

 

Which means you are not reaching your routers dhcp server. Since a restore from backup works it has to be whatever changes you are making that is causing the issue.  I would suggest you enable whatever services you have disabled for starts.  Disable comodo and see if you can then get a ip address from the router.

 

Are you using a wired or wireless connection?

wow....that's a lot of stuff. that is completely unneeded to be done. Try undoing it, make sure you have a good antivirus that is kept updated, change your router's default password, don't click unknown links, and try not to be so paranoid. I wish you luck.
