hi,

i 'm sure it's an easy one for many of u;

i was working away and suddenly i can't connect to other computers within my LAN; but the LAN icon in the bottom right says that it's connected; i tried to tighten as well as replug the connections

BUT when i do an ipconfig, the ip is not what it should be i.e. 192.168.1.100 , instead it's 169.254.119.17

so i guess that's the culprit, but i dont know how to reset it to the correct value?

please help

thank u!! :)
btw, it's on XP

all the other computers within the LAN see each other fine except for this one
