Right guy and gals, I have read through the Limited or No connectivity thread but I don't believe there is a applicable problem to mine. I hope my query and general load of muddled up words below make sense to someone.

So I was installing a new computer to the network already cable and router in place should just plug and go. It didn't, and the other computer connected to the internet received "Limited or no connectivity".

The network comes in to a router then through to a splitter to access lots of computers its then put into a DLINK DI-804 router to the two computers which have now failed or not connected and yesterday one was working fine. i've tried various things releasing renewing ip etc. When going to renew the IP it fails and states Error renewing LAN unable to contact DHCP server.

A 169 address means the computer isn't getting an IP from the router. You need to either simplify the setup to find where the issue is, or if all the computers on a particular part of the network have the issue, find out which bit of that chain has an issue.

Alternatively it the router is only set up to dish out so many IPs in a particular range and you've used them all already and you add one more, there will be no IP address to give out.

The ip addresses had been manually asigned and it was just working out which ones were needed.

Could you please remove the post as it think the detail giving is causing SPAM to be sent from our network.
