My system has just stopped accessing the internet the other day, I am having to write this on another machine.
In My Local Area Connections it states I have a good connection, however the IP number is wrong, I use a router and my numbers all start 192.168 *** *** .
The IP Number I have is 169.254.94.156.
I have tried to manually set the internet IP and configure the other numbers but still have no success.
When I try to repair the connection, it says "The following steps of the repair operation failed: Renewing the IP address, Please contact your network admin "
Internet connection is fine on this system and my wifes laptop, so I know its just that machine, the drivers are all ok and seem to be functioning
When I manually configure the card to 192.168.1.108 or other and set the mask as 255.255.255.0 and the gateway to 192.168.1.1 I manage to get connection to all the workgroup computers, but no net access.
I have scanned for a virus which come up clean.
Any help would be appreciated.
