i have DSL with DSL router (a little NAT box)
i hooked another computer to it and was transfering a file across the network
all of a sudden the one computer lost the transfer.. internet disapeared
the LAN isapeared... i did ping 127.0.0.1 and it replyed the lan card seems to be working fine,.......... i connect the wire and it says the connection is good... the default gateway is 192.168.0.1 and lal the IPs are 192.168.0.X
now that this computer has lost lan and internet it gets an IP of 169.254.93.9. I have no idea where this IP came from. I had this problem with a different computer once.. reinstalling windows worked. But i dont want to do this every time i have the problem... anyone have any solutions to what i can do to try to fix this.. i even added a new NIC and that didnt help any same issue as before
please help

That is a default Windows assigned IP address that it issues when a DHCP server can't be found. I'd say you have a bad NIC in that comptuer, or a bad cable going into the router. The other computer works fine, right?

You might also try reinstalling the drivers for your NIC.

Check the connection of your NIC and the wires 2/from the router.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
