    Hi everyone.

    I have a new actiontec modem/router, used to have a D-link modem/router and all my devices, computers worked fine. now everything connects except the Sony TV with Sony USB wireless lan adapter. I have read a lot of posts and one here was sort of the same. The problem is I get the
    169.254.72.161 which I understand is what it sets to when it won't connect to the router and get a new Ip address. I haven't been able to manually put the ip in. Also even connecting with the cable direct to the modem/router still doesn't connect.
    The member who also had this problem was with his xp win computer. My problem this is with a tv device so I can't release ip or anything. They said his problem was a" be that Winsock2 is corrupted."
    I am not sure if the fix would be the same in this case? Would I download this :
    WINSOCK Fix WinALL: http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm and run it on my windows7 computer? I'm at a loss because it worked fine on the old D-link, and has never connected to the new actiotec, but all other devices have connected no problem.
    Thanks for any ideas.

    is the TV connecting by wireless or by cable ?

    post an ipconfig /all from a working PC

    then post back the TV - ip address, dns, gateway etc

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    {ipconfig /all}
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
    We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
    -> Start
    -> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all
    -> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
    cmd /k ipconfig /all

    A black box will appear on the screen -
    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    control key + C key - to copy

    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    but all I get is on the tv.
    wireless device OK
    local access Failed
    internet access failed.

    can you change the settings on the TV to input a manual IP ?

    I would choose an
    IP . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.250
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.254
    DNS ...................... 192.168.1.254

    Yes.... I got a manual conncetion with your #'s
    That's great, thankyou for the help..
    I guess I don't need to have it go in auto if this
    works just fine.
    I was worried I wouldn't be able to use the internet feature
    anymore.. The ISP and TV techs just wanted to each say
    check with the other, kinda stuck in the middle.
