    Everytime I try to connect it has the ip address of instead of mine. This address belongs to
    a search page under yahoo. After awhile it will finnally
    refreash to my ip address. I have tried to refreash the
    ip address and this has not worked. Please help.

    Thanks Linda

    The 169.254.*.* IP address range is assigned by Windows if it can't find
    a DHCP server.

    What do you mean exactly when you say "Every time I try to connect it
    has the ip address of instead of mine."

    How can this be true as the 169.254.*.* is not allowed on the internet
    "This address belongs to a search page under yahoo.".

    So once again what exactly are you doing?

    The other question is, what is the expected result?

    I mean that everytime I bring up my Microsoft broadband
    untility whare my ip address should be it has a ip
    address that belongs to a yahoo search page after I wait
    a few min. it will refreash and show my ip address. I
    have even changed my ip address to see if that helps. It
    wont let me connect with that address there and I have to
    wait for it to refreash and grab my ip address. This
    started after I upgraded to windows xp s2 I am not sure
    if that has anything to do with it or not. If I stay off
    line for awhile then a error with connection icon show's
    up at the bottem of my screen saying that my connection
    speed might not let mr connect so I will open up my
    broadband and try to connect it will have the wrong ip
    address after it refreashes it will have mine and I can
    get online. I hope that explans it better because I am
    out of things to try.
    Thanks Linda
