Unable to connect to internet

  1. I have ran into a problem with being able to connect to the internet. I am able to connect using the wireless connection but not using the wired connection. The router is a linksys wrtg54 and the computer is a dell dimension 3000 with xp installed. I have done just about everything I can for this to work but nothing. In the router application under status I can see the computer and the ip address the router issued for the pc but the ip address is not the same when I run ipconfig /all from the cmd prompt. The ip address that shows up is something like 169.125.**.** or of the sort. Any help will be appreciated.

    The IP address that pops up is not 169.125.**.** it is and it will not change. Even though everything is setup to acquire it automatically.

    Enter each of the following. From: Start->Run->cmd

    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    ipconfig /renew
    net stop "DNS Client"
    net start "DNS Client"

    Also edit out the IP addy, from your post, and make it: 169.254.**.***

    When I use the ipconfig /renew command it says that it is unable to contact the DHCP server.
