Hope someone can help with this problem, it's got me pulling my hair out!
I'm trying to connect a PC to the Internet, cabled via Netgear router, but I'm stumped because the dynamic IP address keeps coming up as 169.254.224.22 with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0
My router IP address range should be 169.254.0.1 - 254, subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Now my main PC is working fine, but I just cannot get this other PC to be sensible about the dynamic IP addy.
I've unistalled & re-installed the NIC, reset IP using netsh, even set a static IP etc. Which, sort of helped, but still got DNS error with IE & Firefox. I can ping the router OK with a static IP, but still getting DNS errors.
Sorry if this is rambling, but my noodle is fried.
