  1. So, here's the deal. I recently got that error. It says that I have Limited or no connectivity. I can't figure out what's wrong. I get an IP like 169.xxx.xxx.xxx. WTF! I tried almost everything I found on Google, but no results.
    I tried :
    • Repair connection
    • Disable/Re-enable connection
    • Delete/Re-install adapter (NIC)
    • WinSockXPFix
    • Manually assign IP address
    • Re-setting BIOS
    • Changing modem and cable
    • Using many IPConfig commands (Release/Renew/etc)
    • Editing registry (EnableDHCP/etc)
    • Editing MAC address
    • Even resetting/reconfiguring modem
    • And EVEN reformatting PC
    But nothing. I am totally confused.
    Oh! And I tried my network card on my old PC, somehow, it works. For now, I'm using USB modem, it's quite slow, that's why I want Ethernet back. I know that the problem isn't the modem. My laptop (Win7) works both Wired and Wireless with both modems. I would appreciate your help.
