I have got an anoying problem with my network. in the bottom in the toolbar there is an exclamtion mark, saying limited or no activity, (this has only come up recently.) i look in status of the connection and i have noticed that my ip adress begins with 169, i know that this is not good. i have tried renewing the ip address, but no luck it says could not be completed. i have also tried renewing the ip address in command prompt but comes up with . ' An error occurred while renewing interface Local area connection 3 : unable to contact your dhcp server. request has time out.' this problem is very anoying as my network has been working well for a while, now all of a sudden this has occured. i now cant share my internet, or files and printer. this error only shows up on the host computer.
