I recently installed a cable modem to replace a DSL modem. The remaining connection is the same; an 8 port Linksys router, one PC connected to the router, a Cisco wireless port connected to the router. Both computers worked fine for approximatlely two weeks then the PC was able to connet to the internet. I conntacted the cable company and was told there was a conflict due to the PC not releasing the IP Address. The IP Address is 169.254.X.X. I can Ping the adress and recieve the normal replys. Whe I try to ipconfig /renew and ipconfig release I recieve the following error: No adapters bound to TCP/IP are enabled for DHCP. I am looking for suggestions as what to try next.
have you tryed connecting your cable directly to the computer instead of the router?

Then right click TCIP and choose properties and make sure obtain address automatically is checked.
It's been a while since I dealt with Win2K but I believe this is the correct way to get to the TCIP properties.
Another thing to try is to push the reset button on your router...This will default to DHCP server.
trying to help.

What type of conection are you trying to get, wireless or cable? Have you updated the drivers?

Or something else (what fixed it for me) was to remove the Lan Card and the format and install it before I did any thing else. You said that you had reinstall the oerating system so it can't be too hard to do it again.

Your cable company provides the ip address to your node (I say node, because it may not be your PC, but your account.)
In a typical setup with a router in the house, the router takes the single ip, and then it acts as a dhcp server and gives your local pcs a "private" ip address....
192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x (169.254.x.x is also private, but since windows uses that for automatic ip configuration, no household routers I know of use this)
The router than uses network address translation to route data packets from indvidual pcs to the internet, and from the internet to the local pcs.
Since you are not getting an ip address from dhcp, the question is why?
First, is ANY PC working?
If not, focus on the cable modem/router....your ISP likely awards IP addresses based on MAC addresses. The fact that it gave you an ip address once, but then two weeks later all stopped (again, all or just one PC), screams that your cable modem or router is not authorized to receive an ip address on that network.
Did you power off the router? Do they know you have a router? Does the phrase "clone MAC address" or "clone hardware address" ring a bell?

The cable company does know and allows routers with up to seven seperate internet connections. The cable company does not provide support for troubleshooting the router.
I have restarted both the modem and router.
I have heard the term MAC address and I understand it to be some sort of machine ID. However, I do not know how to access or do anything with the MAC address.
