Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
With my iphone I want to use my home internet:
1. Windows XP SP3
2. TL-wn821n usb wireless adapter (I didn't install wireless utility)
3. Windows Zero configuration STARTED
4. I created an AD-HOC using windows to configure my wireless network settings
5. I have cable modem (no router)
6. My local Area connection obtains an IP address automatically

After all configuration when I execute ipconfig /all, I receive the following result. Can you help me please, why the wireless adapter has always 169.xxx.xx IP
C:\>ipconfig /all

The TP-LINK Wireless N Adapter can not get any ip address automatically, because there is no WLAN router, that runs DHCP server.

In that case, you have to manually configure configure the IP address for the TP-LINK Wireless N Adapter.
