  • Cant obtain ip address

    Hello,

    I'm having some problem obtaining an ipaddress to my laptop from a router. it worked well before. I'm using a win xp and a linksys router. I have tried the ipconfig /release and /renew commands but it doesnt help.

    It used to work ok before I updated a newer version of zone alarm. so whenever i turn on the pc, I see an ip address 169.254.something.something
    instead of the normal ip 192.168.1.* assigned by the router. and also the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0 instead of the normally assigned 255.255.255.0

    I have two other pcs connected to the router and it still works fine. just this laptop that I'm using. pls help

    thankyou
