Wired & Wireless NICs will not accept IP from routers
Posted on 2010-09-01
On a Dell Vostro 1000 with Windows XP Pro - both the wired and wireless NICs show up with 169.254.26.999 & Subnet Mask of 255.255.0.0 ( 999 = various numbers) - from DHCP. (DHCP server in router starts with 192.168.0.100 & 255.255.255.0) if I use a static IP, it will keep it but will have no throughput. I have uninstalled NIC drivers - reinstalled NIC driver - updated NIC drivers, updated BIOS, flushed TCP/IP stack, ran HijackThis and Malwarebytes.
