IP and DHCP error

by jordanlevin8 / April 6, 2011 1:29 AM PDT

Hello. For some reason randomly I started getting a few IP/DHCP errors on my computer.

I connect to the internet for about 10 seconds before it stops working. My wireless internet connection says it can connect fine, but for some reason its not actually connecting.

I keep getting the conflicting IP address error, and when I look at the Events log i have TWO errors.

TCP/IP- Error 1002
DHCP- Error 4199

I cant figure out what to do! I already ran the ipconfig /release & /renew yet they still dont seem to work. I have checked my lease info on the router and everything is normal. The thing that is strange is that I never changed any settings, so I really have no idea how it could just 'stop working..'

I have a Linksys WRT54G as well as an old Netgear. I am running DD-WRT on the Linksys because I cant get internet in some parts of my house. But it seems that I am getting the errors regardless of the wireless routers that I am connecting to.

Whats even stranger, is that I am the only one in my apartment that is getting these errors. Everyone else is fine.

I also have already ran the winsock fix and Malware/AVG and they all didnt work.

If someone has a solution that would be great!

If the wifi is WEP or less security I see that error often. The reason only one machine may be affected is simple. It's the one that was picked to clone the MAC or hijack the connection.

If this does not apply because you use WPA I missed where you noted that in your post.

Not sure what that means. I have a security key that I created myself. In otherwords its not a multi number key...

What is the solution?

Also this problem JUST started. Why would it be a new problem?

Also I forgot to include, my roomate just installed a Roku box in his room. Could this thing be the cause of the problem?

Sorry but since it is WEP, your choice to stay insecure.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
