  1. hi all, i dont know what seems to be the problem. can anyone help me and solve my it with your expertise..
    my network connection is enable and at 100mbps. but when i browse at the internet it says page cannot be displayed. so i go to network connections tcp/ip and properties. i switch to use following ip address. and put on my wireless device ip which is 169.254.1.1, sub mask 255.255.0.0 and default gateway to 169.254.1.2. when i go to cmd ipconfig it matches all the info i put on. then i tried pinging the ip address and it replys to me with 0% loss but when i ping my default gateway it replies with destination host unreachable 100%loss...

    i tried to go to network trouble shooter and i selected the option to scan my connections. my default gateway failed but my ip address passed. can understand the problem of this i even tried updating my adapter its realtek rtl8139/810x family pci fast ethernet nic. i borrowed my friends laptop and tried the same process when i ping the the ip and default gateway it replies with 0% loss.

    Perhaps contact your internet service provider. This will be the quikest and easiest solution since they will know most about it.

    Good luck,

    your not using a lan ip for inside network
    there are 3 set type of lan address numbers
    10.1.1.0--100
    192.168.1.1---255
    172.16.1.1---255

    you didn't describe your ISP connection (dial-up,cable,dsl) and/or if you have
    a router.

    The primary issue is to be sure you have DHCP enabled for both your
    IP-Address and DNS service.

    use ipconfig /all to discover your current settings
