This is a common networking occurrence. This is called APIPA. See this link: http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/A/APIPA.html\015\012\015\012APIPA is an IP address which is assigned when no other address is available. \015\012\015\012Whatever Windows version you have, this will work if it's above Windows 95. Click on the Start menu, choose "Run", type in "cmd.exe" once you get a command prompt, type in "ipconfig /release", then "ipconfig /renew". This will release the APIPA address and attempt to get a valid address.\015\012\015\012Hope this helps.
