  • To help troubleshoot this problem, go to Start > Run and type cmd then click OK. In the command prompt window that opens, type ipconfig /all then hit the enter key. Write down the output from this command or select it and save it to a txt file, then copy this output into a reply to this message.

  • You are not getting a valid IP address from you network.  The IP address you are getting is an autoconfiguration IP address which is what Windows assigns when it cannot find a device from which to get a valid IP address.  Try downloading and running winsockfix for Windows XP from the Here and see if that solve the ;problem.
