multiple ip address on lan

Hello,

I have a strange setting in my windows 7 configuration: There are two ip addresses on the same network connection at the same time.

Does anyone knows what this is?
The computer is in a domain and the first IP is configured by DHCP.

Already thanks.

Do you have two NIC's? How are you connecting to the network?

Hello,

No, i only have one NIC and a wireless. (it's a laptop)

The laptop is connected to the wired network via one patch cable and to the wireless connection.
When i disable the wireless connection, the same ip problems remains.

I was going to say, that two connections would have created two IP addresses, have you disabled the DHCP after disabling the wireless connection?

I disabled the wireless connection,
I've put my laptop on fix IP.
I disabled the ipv6 connection.

No luck...

EDIT: i reenabled the DHCP settings and now it is ok.
The first moment the 169.x.x.x address remained and after having the dhcp addres, it was ok.

Hello,

I change my ip settings regualary with NetSetMan.
After changing my settings, the mulitple ip adress was back there.

Could that be a problem?
i'm going to try next week to remove it, and then not to use NetSetMan. Hopefully it's that.

It could be, personally I wouldn't use third-party programs in order to set my IP settings, but would choose to configure the settings within Windows itself.

That is totally normal, as it should be. There is nothing wrong on your double IP addresses. When connected, every network controller has (must have!) its own IP address. Your first post shows you have both wireless (WLAN) and Ethernet (LAN) adapters, both connected with individual IPs.


EDIT: Sorry, I read your post too fast. My fault, I will try to be more careful

There seems to be a small problem with your Ethernet connection. You have assigned an internal IP to Ethernet but it apparently fails to connect, giving instead that 169.254.X.X address.

Let DHCP assign IP automatically; as you stated in your earlier post it worked so there should be no need to try to manually set an IP.

I have to change my settings on a regular basis. (more then once a day) because at my desk, i have to use DHCP.
I have also to connect to machines on a local network, in another subnet, settings the ip address manual.

I'll try to use only the windows IP settings, although i never had problems in the past...
