Hello. in our house we have 2 computers one is running on windows xp and the other is on vista now up until about a week ago the xp laptop was able to access the internet with no problem now it stopped being able to get on the internet and said it had 169 ip address. Now the vista is connected to the same wireless network and has no problems.

I looked through the furoms for answers and tried ipconfig/release ipconfig/renew but still nothing.
So we took it to Geek Squad and they said that it might have a virus which I really dont think is the case.

I also tried calling Comcast our ISP and they said the 169 ip address was caused by an "outdated adaper"
I cant think of anything else to do,so any help is greatly appreiciated

If you need to know anything else concerning the XP laptops adapter and such please ask

Thank You
