Acquiring Network address
Posted on 2006-07-03
Hi there , the situation to date .
1.. 2 computers XP Home + 1 computer XPpro - hard wired using ASDL Netgear DG834 - all working perfectly.
Each computer can access the internet , files from each others computers .
2..Hard Disk failure on XP pro machine - Hard Disk replaced with 2 Hard Disk ( 2nd hard disk for back up purposes)
3. No initial problems with accessing internet / files from other computers , just used old "wizard" ntset file. Configuration was "obtain ip address automatically
4. Today - error message , "limited or no connectivity " - tried repair , couldnt repair suggested i see my network administrator
The Current Net Connection Details are
ip address 169.254.0.0
5 . By manually configuring the
ip address to 192.168.0.12 ,
sub net autod on 255.255..255.0
I changed the default to 192.168.0.1
I can now access my other 2 computers but can access the internet
The Physical Address is still PA 00-00-00-00-00-00-00 & this looks like problem area
Where do we go from here please ?
