  1. Unidentified Network after BSOD. IP address starts with 169


    I'm running Windows 10 64bit and had a BSOD due to laptop over heating. On rebooting my laptop LAN started showing unidentified network. My WiFi is completely fine and I can use it. When I checked my IP it started with 169 and I was told it had a negative significance. Any help would be appreciated.

    169 ip Address, media disconnected, invalid ethernet ip


    Right.

    Note to self. Ask for help. Get partial help fm LogicEarth (thank you - only after suggesting I was quite going slightly mad - smile). Irrespective of self-hosting website non-public - I still didnt get an answer or quick fix for 169 ip address and so forth.

    See? Nobody actually addressed my issue besides the fact that im partially crazy for hosting my own website. Nobody ('cept for Alure thingy), has given an alternative.

    ABSOLUTELY NOBODY addressed the issue of 169 ip and so forth.

    The reason no one is addressing it, is because that IP address is normal for your setup . You have no router, you have no DHCP server. You are directly connected to your ISP via that USB adapter, you have no network. But you still need an IP for that adapter to work thus you get 169.x.x.x.

    And to add my replies are slow and terse because I'm at work, utilizing my phone to write these posts.

    IP Address

    Hi Will,

    You might need your computer's IP address if you want to set up an Internet connection, allow other people to connect to your PC, or need to troubleshoot network problems. Kindly follow these steps to find the IP address of your computer:

    • Select the Start button , start typing View network connections, and then select it in the list.
    • Select an active network connection, and then, in the toolbar, select
      View status of this connection
      . (You might need to select the chevron icon to find this command.)
    • Select Details. (Your PC's IP address appears in the
      Value
      column, next to IPv4 Address).
    Let us know whenever you need further assistance.
