unable to get a ip assigned to networked computer
Posted on 2004-10-04
I have just upgraded one of my pc to win 2000 prof I am unable to connect to the internet. I am getting a connected status but unable to browse. when i go the the command prompt and do an ipconfig i am getting either all 00000 or a ip of 169.254.8.253 subnet of 255.255.0.0
when i try to release this i get the message "all adapters bound to dhcp do not have dhcp addresses. The addresses were automatically configured and cannot be released."
I have checked all the setting and they match the setting on this pc also running the same os. i have no proplems connecting on this pc.
I am also getting an error message when i start up:
"sqlmangr.exe The ordinal 29 could not be located in the dynamic link library odbcbcp.dll"
when talking to my dsl tech service he thought there was a connection between this error and my connection problem. i read the solution to the ordinal 29 missing error on this sight and am completly lost i have no idea how to begin to try the solution to that problem. but it seemed to me that it would be much easier to deal with this if i could access the web on that pc.
thanks for you prompt response
