Amazing Network Problem.

Hey all, i found this site by mistake, because i was searching for a windows 7 network solution.
Okay, here's my problem.

When i installed the windows, i had no errors, nothing whatsoever. But when i tried to go on the internet 1st it gave me error that i am in Unidentified network, and i could see my step brothers PC on the network, and could go in that drive, copy/paste etc.. but i couldn't access internet. I am constantly getting error with "Wrong IP Configuration."

I got no idea why i am getting this. in IPv4 properties i chose "Assign IPs by default" (or sth like that)

my network submask is 255.255.255.0,
and it assigns me submask of 255.255.0.0 , and i dont know why

anyways here's the screenshot:



I would appreciate help with this.. Cuz i tried EVERY possible things i know about..
Not sure about /flush or /renew in cmd, but i will try that today too..

Thanks...

This usually means that the system is configured to obtain an IP address automatically, but that a DHCP server is not available. Have you tried setting a static IP address (manually set IP address)? You may have to access your router and verify that it is set to assign IP addresses with DHCP.

Would you please elaborate more as to connected devices like Modem / Router, especially their Brand / Model Numbers, if any?

Umm, I got Router, Netgear DG834G.. When i was on XP, everything was working fine.. And in Properties of the current connection, i had "Obtain IP Address automatically".. and my IP address was 192.168.0.5 and subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 , IF i select "Obtain IP Address automatically" on Windows 7, I get IP address like 169.174.0.23 and subnet mask of 255.255.0.0.. And when i go Networks that i am in, i see my step brothers PC (can do on his drive, and copy/paste, etc) also i see some PC called Chris-PC, got no idea who is that and i dont have internet... but if i input my IP address manually, to 192.168.0.5 instead of selecting "Obtain IP Address automatically", then i can see my brothers PC on the network and i still dont have internet..

I am really annoyed.. Ive been trying to fix this problem for over 2 days, still cant do it.. -_-'

The IP address starting with 169. is Windows' way to tell you it doesn't find the DHCP server. Quite often the problem is solved by rebooting modem, router and computer. You could try this:
  • power off modem and router
  • wait a minute or two
  • power on modem, wait until all lights are green
  • power on router
  • reboot your computer
Good luck,

Kari
