I have just purchased a new PC, a Compaq Presario 5630. It comes equipped
with a DEC DC21143 PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter; it's running Windows98, and I
connect to my ISP using a regular dial-up connection.

While connected, for example, IPCONFIG /ALL produces the following output:

When I start CU-SeeMe, in this instance, it thinks that my IP is
169.254.210.57. Then, when I attempt to connect to various reflectors, a
message box appears:

Title: Reflector Error Message
Message:: Your IP address is incorrect, restart CU-SeeMe.

And, needless to say, the connection fails.

If I remove the TCP/IP binding from the NIC, then everything works just
fine. But, ultimately, I want to network my two PCs together, and when I do,
I have the feeling the problem will return.

Any suggestions?
