    In the past, my PPC occasionally gets a wrong IP. eg my IP range for my
    router is 192.168.8.1 to 192.168.8.10. I can get something totally
    wrong, like something that starts with 196.

    Now, I keep getting the wrong ip.

    Any advice ? Thanks.

    The IP address of 169.254.xxx.xxx is an address that the system
    automatically puts in when it can not get an address from DHCP servers


    This means that you are not connecting to your dhcp server for whatever
    reason. It could be a security arrangement, it could be a wrong network
    setting, etc...

    Best thing to do is to delete the setup you have in your ppc, and re-install
    all the network settings for the wireless.

    Hope this helps
