Multiple users report that the workstations are assigned a 169.254.x.x IP address. The users are able to communicate only between each other. What is a possible solution?
- Restart the DNS server.
- Statically configure a default gateway on each workstation.
- Verify the network cable on all user machines.
- Restart the DHCP server.
Explanation: When a network device automatically obtains the IP address 169.254.x.x, it is unable to receive an IP address from a DHCP server. The DHCP server should be restarted to ensure that it is operational.
