Hello,

 

as the title says, thats my problem. My LAC has 169.255.x.x IP address, and no matter what I do it doesnt get fixed.

 

I've tried;

 

Enabling DHCP

Using static IP address.

Re-installing drivers, installing the latest drivers

Disabling IPv6

Draining the static power from the computer by pressing 'ON' button when the system is offline.

Re-installing Windows 7(lol :D )

Trying the commands like; I've tried nearly all commands and none of them worked.

> ipconifg /release and /renew it gives me some error like; Error occurred while release interface Loopback Pseudo-interface1: The system cannot find the file specified. 

> netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt doesn't fix this as well.

> Some people told me to enable DHCP, its enabled lol, when I use 'Use the following address' the DHCP gets disabled.

 

So, I made up my mind, to see if the LAN card is dead, but when I booted Ubuntu, my internet is working. No issues thus far. But I am a Windows user, and am not ready to use Ubuntu.

 

Here's my ipconfig /all

Spoiler

 

Sub notes: It says un-identified network, and its set to Public automatically(I cant change this as well)

 

Help me fix this issue, please.

 

Thank you.

Hi ,
please ensure that the router or modem or whatever at the other end of your network cable is having DHCP enabled. Also make sure the IP lease is set to more than 2.
Now press start > control panel > network and sharing center > adapter properties (left hand side pane, it appears as a link) > rightclick on your lan adapter (nvidia) > properties > select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) > click Properties button > select 'Automatically obtain....' .
Apply the settings and exit.
Now check if its working.
Please post back if there is any entry already there (incl the IP and subnet mask and dns).
In the IPv6 properties, tick 'Automatically obtain....'

Did everything you've specified in your post, Nikhil. But of no use.
