    Likely you are fussing with static addresses; STOP IT. If you leave the DHCP
    alone, it does everything correctly.

    1) why are you changing the IP (and which one: gateway, dns, router, or the PC)

    2) what was it and what did you change it to (and we need the mask as well)

    It means just that

    You are trying to define as a host that does not exist on any local network you are a part of. This is against the basic rules of networking and would result in an unusable system (or at least, unusable to actually achieve working non-local network functionality)

    If you don't know what you are doing, you really should not be using static addressing, and should instead stick to DHCP.
