My daughter's Compaq Presario laptop can no longer connect to the internet through the wired or wireless connection. It worked previously, but now it will only connect as "Local Only". When I look at the interfaces, they are both configured to obtain an IP address automatically. When I run IPCONFIG it shows that DHCP is enabled, but the autoconfigured IPv4 IP address it shows (169.254.249.194) is not on my network. There also isn't an IP showing for the Default Gateway. I am using a Linksys Wireless-G router and I have 3 other laptops (2 running Vista; 1 running Win7) that are able to connect without any problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated as my daughter is driving me nuts about not having a fully functioning computer. Standing by to answer any questions or provide/upload anything needed to help troubleshoot the problem.
Thanks and Cheers!
