That's the APIPA address range. Your netmask is 255.255.0.0. There's no DHCP
server for you to connect to. Call your network administrator.

PS: Word of advice: bring beer for them.

Its not a virus.You are getting this ip addres because your computer is not able to get ipaddress from your isp computer
It may be due to that cable in not properly attached to the computer(I mean to say the cable coming from isp).Or it may be possible that it is due to some os problem.For rectifying the os problem do system restore.(Click on start---click on run--type their msconfig---click on ok---click on launch system restore and restore the system on the date when it was working fine).Or call your isp and ask for ipaddress which you put manually Or ask them to reconfigure your dsl

Yes, i tried the release, renew stuff from the command line. I am
attached to a home network (linksys 4 port router) connected to comcast
cable modem. I have 2 machines on this network. My desktop can get a dhcp
ip address from the router and works fine - no problems. I can log into the
router from the desktop and see that it has been assigned a 69.xx address
which is a comcast ip.
So, i hooked my laptop up to the port that the desktop is connected to,
thinking that i had a cable problem. Did not work. I took my laptop to work
and hooked up - did not work.
i have checked all the settings (that i know of - keep in mind that i am
an accountant) over and over again. the 3com adaptor is working, TCIP is
setup to automatically to obtain IP address from dhcp server. Could this be
a hardware problem?

I am having the exact same problem with my laptop. Suddenly it just decided
it was not going to connect to the Internet I've tried the command line,
checked all my cables, done a system restore, everything I can think of and
it still does not work. If anyone can offer a solution other than the ones
already suggested I would MOST appreciate it. Thanks
