I am using Windows 7 and I get 169.254.x.x IP address. What would be the problem?
Can you please gave me a step-by-step procedure?

Here’s what I have tried:

  • ipconfig /all got us a 169.254.x.x ip address and no default gateway
  • ipconfig /release gave us the same number
  • ipconfig /renew failed
  • also tried to check cable and done hard reset for both modem and router, still not working

According to THIS website it means you are set up for a DHCP server but the DHCP server was not found so your system defaults to Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA). Normally your router would provide your DHCP IP addressing unless you have a static IP. If your router was provided by your ISP then I suggest you contact your Internet Provider.
