      Re: Desktop to router problem

      If the IP address is 192.168.0.x, then the PC is getting its IP address from the router, and the default gateway should be 192.168.0.1.

      If the IP address is 169.*.*.* then it is not connecting to the router and you have a problem with your network card, cable or drivers.
