Hi people,

I have a computer in my room (It's my mates really) and we just got it down my place set it up turned it on, slapped the old patch cable in and waited for a minute only to find out that in the Connection Status, click on the support tab where it says 'Address type' it says 'Automatic Private Address' so that tell me that something isn't right, duh.......

What is it, and how can it be fixed?

And once again.....
Thanks a million everyone :tazz:
