Limited or no connectivity... apparently
Hi,

I have windows Vista Ultimate with all the latest updates, (as far as I
know).
I am happily connected to the internet with the VISTA machine and I can
send/receive emails without any problem.

I also have 2 computers connected to my VISTA machine, a windows XP(sp2) and
a windows 98 machine.

But neither machines can go on the internet, I can ping the XP machine but I
get a 169.254.*.* IP address.
I can connect to it via remote desktop, (I don't use a screen for that PC as
it is only used to do lengthy calculations), and work without any problems.

I use a router, (Genius), but even if I connect the 2 computers directly,
(the XP and the VISTA), I still cannot get the XP machine on the internet.

The fact that the IP address is in the range 169.254.*.* tells me that there
is something else wrong.

But what I don't understand is, if the remote desktop works why do I have
limited connectivity?
What can I try to fix the problem?

Many thanks

Simon

Is that a joke? How will that help?

It prints about 2 screens worth of data, (only related to my PC)
How can I print it here?

169.254.*.* is auto IP address. It seems to us the DHCP may have an issue.
Use this command: ipconfig /all >C:\ipconfig.txt. Post back the ipconfig.txt
here.

There is something wrong with that site.
There are so many adverts that my SpyBot S&D is giving me warnings after
warnings, eventually I have to kill iexplorer.

With Firefox it uses a lot, (just try it), of memory, you might want to look
into it, that site is not very usable.

Re: Limited or no connectivity... apparently
hello. im also getting weird connection problems and im not sure why. i run a
windows vista on a gateway notebook computer. often times i get 'limited' or
'local' connectivity, but sometimes at complete random it seems i am able to
access websites and what not. however when im 'limited or local' then i can't
even ping my router to change configurations. we use a belkin wireless
router, and im sure that everything is connected right. the 4 other computers
throughout the house have internet working just fine. im clueless as to what
the problem is; my only idea is that it could be the router. ANY help would
be greatly appreciated.
thanks
-nathan
