The IP address being assigned to that network interface is a automatic private internet address (apipa) which is used when configured for DHCP but cannot for one reason or another successfully communicate with the DHCP server. It is not a routable address, by design, which is why you can't connect to the internet on that PC. I'm not sure if you are trying ...

Given that your pc gets a 169.254.x.x address means it cannot receive an IP from the DHCP server. This can have several meanings. The DHCP server is not working properly or it cannot hand out any leashes because the range is full. The PC does not make contact with this particular DHCP server. This is likely due to a cable problem. If another DHCP server ...

Your ISP knows the IP address of their website so won't impose any traffic policing on requests going to that particular IP address. We cannot help you circumvent your ISP's terms of service.

Unfortunately, there is no way to say. Just because it is your provider says its covered by your network, that doesnt mean you will actually get 4G service in your area - or any service at all. You may get lucky with 4G, but you better hope your provider has an unlimited plan if you are a heavy data user. Not only that, but many unlimited plans throttle ...

You can. I used to be in a similar situation, and I used an ssh connection from the server to the client to set-up a SOCKS proxy. You can set it up straightforwardly with the aid of the flag -D port number (for instance 10001) when making an SSH connection from the server to the client. (on the server, make a SSH connection to the client and leave this ...

It's not uncommon for an ISP to have multiple upstream connections, and partition traffic over the different connections based on any number of factors, such as the destination, time of day etc. So it's possible that one of their links went down and they didn't fail the rest of the traffic over to another link (or can't). The ISP should have a status page ...

Instead of connecting two routers to the modem, it would probably work better to configure one of the routers as an access point and joining them on the LAN. This is device-specific, but usually involves turning off DHCP and hooking the access point to the LAN ports on the main router. (The connection is on the LAN side.) Here's a generic description. I've ...

I don't have enough rep to comment, or would have. A lot of the discussion is beyond my knowledge level, so this is a very basic suggestion. At the router/switch, reverse the cable connections corresponding to the good and bad PCs. That tests the cables in combination with the ports on the router in a way I don't think the other answers did.

The most obvious sounds to me being the network cable. Just because it worked BEFORE and doesn't now, does not rule out a coincidence of errors. turn off static IP, you'll want it dynamically assigned, even if only for getting it up and running unplug and reseat your network cable, even re-terminate if necessary. Change it out even. (are you getting ...

Most cable internet connections have shared lines for either streets or larger areas. It's cheaper for the ISP, but you don't get guaranteed speed, since you're sharing the bandwidth of the line to the nearest service station with a bunch of other houses. You can pay for guaranteed speed, but it's much more expensive and probably only a good idea for ...

A yellow triangle means that your drivers and hardware are working properly. The problem is with the IP, your PC is not able to obtain an IP address to assess internet. You can check it by opening cmd and type ipconfig command and hit enter. Check for ip v4 address as well as v6. If they exists then it's ok. Otherwise type ipconfig /renew or /release to ...
