That is an Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) address. This is assigned automatically when no static configuration or DHCP server exists.

Try an ipconfig /renew (make sure to run as administrator)

If that doesnt work, check the physical connectons to the router and make sure the cables, etc are not bad.

I'm certain you made a simple mistake when configuring your network connection. Go to your profile and enter your system specs - once you do that, we can help you.

Assign yourself a static ip address.

Make your ip 192.168.0.50
Make the subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Make the default gateway 192.168.0.1
Make the preferred dns server 192.168.0.1

Do this by clicking on local area connection in network and sharing center. Then properties. Then double click the IPv4 line. Enter numbers. Hit ok x2. Then close. Done.

Why would i need to run it as Administrator ?
The account i am on is the only 1 AND its also admin account..
But anyway, should right click the CMD ? and run as administrator ?

The built-in administrator account is hidden. It is not the same thing than the first user account created when installing Windows 7, i.e. in your case your account.

You dont need to run as THE Administrator, but you do need to right-click and choose "run as administrator"

The reason is because you cant run an IPconfig /release or /renew as a regular user.

Anytime you see "This operation requires elevation", that means you need to right-click and choose run as administrator.

What you mean list the steps

I installed windows, then the first-est time i went on desktop right after installation, and i had no internet already..

I didnt really take any steps, besides editing the IPv4 properties, and putting manual info like :
Ip 192.168.0.50
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Default gateway 192.168.0.1
Preferred DNS server 192.168.0.1


That did not give me any internet access, however i could see my brothers PC/Drive. Thats all..


P.S. - Do i have to go "Set up new connection or network" after i do those Manual IPs ?
Cuz it asks me for username and password, and i am not sure whether i should enter there my ISP details or whatnot..
