I have a router which has a network cable that links into a hub, where several PC's are hooked into.

Everything has been working fine until yesterday, now only 2 PC's can access the Internet, the rest cannot.

When I tried renewing the IP Address on all machines, on 2 of the PC's IP address is 192.168.xxx.xxx (these are the machines that can access the INTERNET etc), the other machine show as 169.xxx.xxx.xxx.

I also tried using the flush dns, rebooting the hub but nothing seems to work.

I tried setting the IP Address manually, 192.168.1.xxx, subnet 255.255.255.0 and Default Gateway 192.168.1.254, but while they can see the other PC's cannot access the Internet.

Am I right in saying the machines with 169.xxx.xxx.xxx are not been renewed, the are also on a different subnet to the other PC's.

Any ideas - I'm completely stumped?
