Windows XP SP2 : Can't connect to network
I use DHCP, and the address I get is 169.254.xx.xx. Ping to 127.0.0.1 fail. Hardware and connection wise everything is ok, since I booted with Linux and I was able to connect to the internet.
When I do ipconfig /renew , it says : unable to contact DHCP server. Request has timed out.
I performed reset of winsock and ip stack on XP. Still problem remains.
The wireless adaptor too is authenticated correctly but gets 169.254.xx.xx address.
Firewall seems ok.
I tried fixed IP, still no change.
Need some help :)
