Windows 7: Limited connectivity to network with no errors

Your getting the 169 ip address because your computer cant connect to your router
Did you do the netsh reset? Have you tried the flush dns?

(Do this in safe mode)
One thing you have to do is make sure IP4 and IP6 is all obtain automatically
Go to "advance" and make sure DHCP is enable nothing in default gateway, if there is anything in there remove it.
Go to DNS tab and make sure nothing is in both address, as for the "WINS" tab make sure nothing is in there.
Reset IP settings

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
netsh int ip reset reset.txt
netsh winsock reset catalog

^^ Do chev65 instead of the top since sfc /scannow does all that

Once you do that disable the Local Area connection and restart and re enable it
Do IP config again and see if it is still the 169 ip address.
If it is still 169 ip address, try with another computer to see if that computer gets a 169 address

ok, your IP is still the AIPIPA address: Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.73.108

I suggested a static address in post 5, but that was when you were testing wireless (I think)

Can you make a similar change for the wired connection? Except make the host 45 instead of 43
192.168.0.45 or (192.168.1.45) depending if the subnet is 0 or 1

I said to make the configuration on the alternate tab, try that for wired first, then if that doesn't work
set the alt config back to obtain IP and DNS and make the same config change on the primary config (general tab)

Please post a screen shot of the configuration changes you make, thanks.

Too many cooks?!

Chev65 is very good at comm stuff.

Follow post# 10 before anything else. I'm stepping back for a while.

Sorry, must have missed it (even in my quote ! )

Ok, it looks as though you're back on wireless, is that correct?

I'd like to stick with a wired connection until this is resolved, then move to wireless - ok?
It's just easier to diagnose.

Try a static IPv4 config on the General tab for your Ethernet adapter (use host 45)
You can try a static IP address in the alternate configuration tab of IPv4 properties page
192.168.0.45 or (192.168.1.45) depending if the subnet is 0 or 1
the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0
the gateway is 192.168.0.1 or (192.168.1.1) depending if the subnet is 0 or 1

The primary DNS servers can be the same as your gateway
and alternate DNS servers can be a public DNS (Google is 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4)

Please post a screen shot of the configuration and run another ipconfig /all - post that too.

Thanks,

Bill

Did it pass the sfc scan or did it show problems that were not fixed?

Is there any type of anti virus software installed on this machine?

Are other machines able to pick up a connection from this router?
