    Hi!Thatmeans that your PC lost its internet connection, and was unable to get an IP address. Any 169.x.x.x address is only assigned when all else fails and your Pc can't find your ISPs server. Set-it to Internet... just in case you use your PC onpublic wireless point (that could be using this same address)Yes, you are safe...Cheers,Fax
