Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

Computer won't connect to internet,getting instead of,my netbook works fine on same network! desktop is 4 year old dell,using belkin usb adapter,running windows xp.

Answers :

169.254 simply means that the network adapter could not locate the DHCP server or the DHCP server was not issuing it an ip address. This can be cause from a bad connection or the DHCP server not on. Try checking you router to ensure that it is enabled if it is then right click your connection on your computer and change the ip manual to 192.168.*.* The *'s represent what it should be (be sure to repeat an ip already on the network) 192.168 will have a subnet mask of and is a Class B address. The gateway will be the router...192.168.*.1 usually unless you have set it up diff. Once again the * is whatever you have your network set at in the 3rd octet. usually default is 0 or 1
An address beginning with 169.254 means the cable is unplugged or bad.
