You notice that the local computer has an IPv4 address of while debugging a network connectivity issue. What are your FIRST impressions of this local computer?

A It can't find a DHCP server.

The IPv4 range is the automated private IP addressing (APIPA) range. When the host is unable to find a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server and the network connection is configured to acquire an IP address dynamically, APIPA is activated. Because the computer cannot obtain a dynamic IP address from the DHCP server, the operating system assigns a random IP address in the APIPA range.
