How to solve 169.254 wifi issue in a open network?
I dont have wifi in the job office, but my neighbor has... an open one.....
The problem is my Iphone gets the following data from their network:
I can conect but I can not use internet.
Why is that, I dont know anything about network and 169.254 issue.
Any help will be very appreciated.
there is no "169." issue :-)
It's just the standard way of telling you that you didn't acquire any IP address from the router/network you're trying to connect to.
Therefore you don't have access to the internet.
The AP might not be WEP or WPA encrypted, but might still have an access control list to block your MAC address.
Thanks mate for prompt reply.
I guess I need to forget about that, and go out and buy an wireless router.
a 169 address normally means that you have not passed the security , or something has brockn the communication during inital connection . Try disconnecting and reconnecting or hit renew lease.
To be precise:
If your local IP address is returned as 169.254.y.z with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0, the IP address was assigned by the Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) feature of Windows XP Professional. This assignment means that TCP/IP is configured for automatic configuration, that no DHCP server was found, and that no alternative configuration is specified. This configuration has no default gateway for the interface.
it can also be an indication that they have DHCP server off in their router.

184.108.40.206 (the one can be replaced from numbers from 1 to 6) is an open DNS server.
192.168.1.1 is a common router IP (linksys uses that automatically i think).
if it doesnt work, try 192.168.0.*** for your ip, and 192.168.0.1 for router and DNS (4.2.2.* isnt related to the router so always use the same).
there are other routers that use the ip 10.0.0.2, your ip in that case should be something like 10.0.0.7 or something like that.
