100.0.0.lx looks like a class a network, which I don't think he is running. It depends on how the network is set up. You may want to look at the PC configuration, in a dos window run ipconfig /all..<br><br>You should see the DHCP server, the DNS server, net mask, default gate way and the IP address.

there are several private IP ranges assigned by IANA<br><br>10.x.x.x<br><br>172.16.x.x to 172.31.x.x<br><br>and 192.168.x.x<br><br>these are used for local area networks and are not routable on the internet. If you have an IP address outside this range you are either connected right to the Internet with a static IP address assigned to you or (as in this case) you have completely misconfigured your local area network.<br><br>there is another range<br><br>169.254.x.x<br><br>which is auto configuring range. PCs without a DHCP server and set to dynamic IP will assign themselves a random IP address in this range. So if you ever see your computer assigned a number in this range, chances are you either have no ethernet connection or the DHCP server is not working.<br><br>[color:blue]My only goal in life is to live forever - so far so good!</font color=blue>
