I was setting up a network, and on both computers it says "Limited or no Connectivity" "This problem occured becuase the network did not assign a network adress on the computer". So what do I do?
Forcing Automatic setup. Get a router or Switch, that can assign an IP to each computer. Or set one computer up with Internet Connection Sharing ICS.
ICS will set the computer's IP address to 192.168.0.1 which is what most computers look to, to set its IP, and will set up the other computers, that don't have ICS enabled, to other IPs.
Manual setup. Or you can go into the Network Connections properties box, and set the IPs manually. Right Click Network Neighborhood, and select properties. Next, "right-click, properties" on the adapter. Select TCP/IP, and select properties. Now you can finally set the IP to manual.
Each computer must have adifferent IP, and XXX.XXX.XXX.1 is not recommended, in a manualy configuration.
I fit bugs you, you can disable the crappy little message that comes up in Control Panel/Network Connections. It's one of those extra annoying things that came with SP2. Your connection is probably fine, i get get that message all the time its a load os bollox.
Oh, I thought unreal was saying that his IP wasn't assigned. Now that I've reread it, I see that is was Windows. 2 sets of quotes is confusing... Especially without a separation between them, and the rest of the text.

Further research, now that I understand the problem... This error simply means, that it couldn't find a "192.168.0.1", or "XXX.XXX.XXX.1" IP address, to get an IP from. Such as those, under the "Forcing Automatic setup." section of my above post.
My above post, is still relevant, and is still the correct answer. However this problem may be safely ignored. I have not found any information on where in the Network Control panel this can be disabled, or how to do it. It can be done, just look for it.
