Hard Coded IP XP cannot be removed


C

catoro

I am Working on a laptop WIn XP Home SP3. Everytime the machine boots up,
wireless connection is assigned a hard coded IP address. There was a
communication s/ware installed by AIS in Thailand which created a AIS network
connection, but it has been deleted.

In IPconfig, the IP is showing Autoconfig IP Address and Default Gateway as
169.254.49.171. It is also showing Tunnel Adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo
Interface and Tunnel Adapter Automatic Tunneling Pseudo Interface. /Renew
times out since the default gateway cannot be reached.

Tried to disable IPV6 by creating Reg Entry -

Hkey_local_machine\system\CurrentControlSet\Services\TCPIP6\DisabledComponents=8

Netsh Interface TCPIP6 Set State Disabled

Any ideas on where the IP is being stored?

Thanks!

That address range belongs to MS. An IP address from this block indicates
that XP cannot find a DHCP server.

Any 169.254 based IP address usually indicated that the XP has not
detected a DHCP server and XP's own networking system places this IP
address so that the network does not cause problems.

A common method is to completely un-install all network
"configurations" and remove the network adapters in Device Manager.
Upon your XP's next reboot, the network components should be re-
detected.

You could also try assigning an IP and gateway manually, then once you
establish the connection see if changing it back to obtain automatically
recognizes your wireless network or if it gets the default again.

Is the NIC getting a "hard coded IP address" or an Autoconfig IP address?

Don't mess with regedit? Use the GUI. Remove IP v6 from the "Wireless
Network Properties" sheet (see http://tinyurl.com/d4bdx).

An Autoconfig IP address (169.254.x.y) is assigned to a NIC if the NIC
is configured to obtain its IP address automatically but a DHCP server
either can't be found or isn't responding. If you turn on a computer
with a wireless NIC with its default configuration, it *will* be
assigned an autoconfig IP address unless there is a preferred wireless
network within range for which the NIC has the proper credentials.

Assuming that you have some sort of wireless router or wireless access
point to which you are attempting to connect, first disable *all*
wireless security on that router/AP, then go into the laptop's list of
preferred networks and delete all of them, and finally go to the "Choose
a wireless network" screen, select the correct SSID, and click
"Connect." Once that works, go back and set up the security in the
router/AP.
