    I have a Zydas USB Wifi ap/station on a desktop. On my laptop that is
    already connected via wifi on my desktop, I clicked on the wireless
    network setup wizard and chose manual configuration. I know shouldn't
    have done it cause after clicked on finish, I suddenly lost connection
    to my Wifi AP( got 169.xxx.xxx.xxx ip address instead of the
    192.168.0.xxx). Can someone direct me on how to undo the changes done
    by the Wireless network setup wizard? Thank you.

  3. Hi
    Windows assigns 169.xxx.xxx.xxx when it can not find a source for an IP.
    I.e., there is No DHCP server (usually it would be the Wireless Router/AP)
    available.
    So, either you are out of range, or something is wrong in the configuration.
    May be this can Help.

  4. I just did the same thing---thank goodness for System Restore--boot in safe
    mode by tapping F8 - it will walk you through by going back to the day before
    you made the change- hope this helps-- :)

  5. Sorry--forget about the first part--I had to do that because I messed up
    --just go to System Restore the normal way and fix it.
