I don't see too many home networks where the connected system's IP address is this range -

Usually we see the familiar "' network range...

Looks like windows isn't getting an address - you have DHCP setup to assign your 'client' system an address?

that's probably why the other poster suggested to perform the ipconfig release and ipconfig renew commands.

If that doesn't get it, perform a manual setup - I have given up on any "Wizards" that come with routers these days...

Make sense?

UPDATE - Just re-read your second post - Yah, power cycle is pretty much essential - You know the drill - Modem first until lights stabilize, then turn the router on and see what happens.


(Who refrained from making a "Install Linux" comment - almost refrained that is.... )
