    169.254 address indicates it can't find a DHCP server.

    :rofl:

    absolutely nothing to do with the problem.


    169... means it can't find dhcp so it's assigning the autoconfigure address. Start checking cables, security settings, etc. My first move would be to reboot everything (pc, router, cae/dsl modem) and see if it fixes itself.

    i'm going to guess that someoen went into her unprotected router and ravaged her pink dhcp setting. she's no longer checked...i'm sorry, hope it wasn't a black guy.
