Wireless doesn't have a valid IP configuration


Intermittenly, I can't get wireless for some reason and get the msg: "Wireless doesn't have a valid IP configuration", with "unidentified network, no network access". In the past, I could just plug in to the wired connection and theIn suddenly, it would recognize the wireless. I can't seem to get it to work after reboot, turning off the router, etc. I've looked through other posts and tried various things and I don't have bonjour anywhere either that i can tell.
Any ideas? This makes me crazy! Thanks!

If i run ipconfig, i get:

I bought a new lenovo laptop with built-in windows 8 OS. Just after a few days I started using it, networking problems arose. When I tried to connect to a wireless router,it shows connected but could not browse even. Troubleshooting gives a message that "WiFi does not have a valid IP configurations" or "Problem with wireless adopter and access point" or "Network cable is not properly plugged in".
I contacted Lenovo chat support and tried re-installing the latest drivers, but couldn't solve the problem. i still couldn't connect to the wireless network properly. Thanks.




I bought windows 7 Ultimate, and installed it onto my windows Vista laptop, and everything is running smoothly. Until I tried to connect to my wireless router, but it keeps saying that I connect with limited connectivity, and troubleshoot says that it " does not have a valid IP configuration".

here is my ipconfig/all stuff...

can anyone help?




Hi guys,
I've just bought an HP Pavilion DV6 with Windows 7 64-bit. After the initial setup, I tried to connect to my wireless router (BT Home Hub) and after typing in the wireless key, it connects, but the network's read as unidentified and does not connect to the internet. Upon going through the diagnosis stages, it eventually comes up with '"Windows Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration'.

This seems like a pretty common problem but I haven't seemed to come across a solution viable to me. Any ideas? More info can be provided on request. Thanks!




I got a new computer for christmas, (HP Pavilion p6214y Desktop PC, running Windows 7 64-bit[i think]).
I'm trying to connect the computer to the internet via the wireless router using an ethernet cord, but the computer doesn't connect, and when i try troubleshooting, it says " "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration ". I've been searching google, and this seems to be a pretty common problem, tho i have yet to find a proper solution. How do I get the internet working?




My internet has been working fine for the last few years, but todat my internet as suddenly stopped working and i haven't changed anything.

When i try to use a cord to get internet i get Local area connection doesn't have a valid Ip configuration and when i try to use wi-fi it says dns servers arent responding.

Right now the only way i can get internet is by directly plugging in my "internet cord" into my laptop and anything off of routers or wifi will not work.

P.S. My knowledge of computers is very basic in this category so detailed solution would be much appreciated.

Kyle




when i start pc i see( Local area connection doesn t have a valid IP configuration) no connection ?
when i start troubleshoot it solve problem?
can i solve this problem ?
so i can start windows 7 en not every time use trobleshooting to fix the problem
tnx pascal




Dear all,

Yesterday, I upgraded my Compaq laptop (bought 1 month ago) from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate.

When the update was finished, it was not possible to connect to the internet anymore. I am using a wired broadband connection. I tried both with and without the interference of the router. However, the problem of not recognizing the network remains.

I run the problem solving program, which suggested to switch off the modem and to disconnect the wires for aprox. 5 min. This didn´t work. The program then said that my LAN connection doesn´t have a valid IP configuration, but doesn´t give me a solution.

My IP-adress is 169.254...... Which I guess, is not right....? I made sure that the laptop "obtains IP-adress automatically"....so I just don´t know what to do anymore.....

I really hope that someone is able to help me. That would be just great!!

Thanks a lot!

Regards,
Bart




Internet randomly dropped out at around 5 PM yesterday and haven't gotten it working since. When I connect to another computer (which I'm posting on right now) it works fine. The problematic computer is running Windows 7 64 bit, this computer is running Vista. There is no router involved.

I've tried rebooting, disabling/renabling the adapter, rolling back the driver, a system restore, searching services.msc for bonjour (didn't see anything suspicious), updating to the current nforce driver, and manually setting an IP configuration among other things. I did an /ipconfig all on the computer that is working and used those details on the first computer while manually entering the IP, gateway, etc info. This got rid of the "doesn't have a valid IP address" error... great, right? But it's replaced with a generic "Troubleshooting couldn't identify the problem." When set to automatically obtain IP address I get a 169.x IP. I've tried pretty much every solution I've ever seen posted regarding this issue and nothing's working. It's not a problem with the ISP (another computer works fine), or the cable (another computer works fine), and my computer has two ethernet adapters; I find the possibility of both failing at the same time hard to believe.




Hi,

I have been using Windows 7 beta (386) with no problems up until a few days ago.

I've run into the The Network Adaptor "Local Area Connection" does not have a valid IP Configuration message. When I go to Network Sharing I see that I am connected to an Unidentified Network but unable to connect to the internet. This has happened all of a sudden.

The computer is an Acer Aspire M1610 and the router is a Dynalink RTA1046VW.

I've tried rebooting the router, changing ethernet cables, uninstalling the network adaptor and reinstalling all with no luck. Going into Device Manager says that all is ok.

No problems with any other computer running Windows 7 in the network. I suspect that my ethernet controller has packed it in.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Cheers
Laurie




Hi,

I recently installed Windows 7 on a brand new computer. Everything is working fine except I cannot connect to the Internet! I have been getting the following message:

"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP address

Thinking this was a Internet issue (as I'm using a brand new computer), I rang Virgin and they said it was an Ethernet Adapter issue.

The Network card I have is:

Realtek PCIE FE Family Controller

Could this be a conflict between Windows 7 and this network card?

Further details are computer (if this helps) are:

Pentium Dual-Core CPU E6600 @ 3.06 GHZ
ACPIx86 based PC

The Windows 7 is a 32bit OS

Any advice appreciated!




okay here's my problem i have had this issue for about two months now on and off and it is irritating the crap out of me. so my internet is more or less dying I can't for a period of time connect to the internet and when i go to the network and sharing center it doesn't identify my network even though I use it on a daily basis and have used it and identified it as my home network for eight months now. if I use the windows network diagnostics it gives me either the error in the title or it says "the dns server isn't responding" i have attempted to fix that problem by giving it a dns to use and have tried to set a static ip but nothing has worked. here is the text from the command prompt when i use the command ipconfig /all

so ya if you have any solutions please post them i would love to have this fixed.

Note: if this is a router problem I can't change any router settings but if not please don't blame it on that. also despite what my profile says i am running windows 7




just built new pc running w7 64bit. laptop runs with w7 using wireless router, desktop will not get a wired connection. I have pluged it in directly to the cable modem and to the router.




I have recently experienced a problem with my main PC which is running W7 (64).

It is hard wired into a D Link DSL-G624T Router and has been for a year and a half without problems.

A week ago i started losing internet connectivity, and this was fixed with going through the WIndows resettinghelp process. However now i have no connection at all.

Firstly, i can confirm the wireless network and connections are fine as my 3 daughters can use there laptops and connect without issue.

However the main pc is dead, no connection.

I have read many threads on this forum which i believe are the same issue, with many associated fixes, none that seem to work for me.

THis is what i have tried so far;

New cable from router to pc.Reset router, NIC etc many times.System restore to last month.In the CMD window IPCONFIG/RELEASE results in an error message saying no IP address has been set by ?In the CMD window IPCONFIG/RENEW results in an error message from DHCP and times out.Uninstalled BONJOUR.

Still i get no network, and if i run IPCONFIG i get an IP address of 169.254.123.12which is obviously worng as the other computers are using 192.168.1.2 and 3, 4 etc.

When i troubleshot the connection with WindowsNetwork Diagnostics i get a message saying "LAN doesnt have a valid IP configuration".

Im at a loss, its as though the router has died !

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Regards

Simon




Hi

i hope someone can help me. i'm not amazing at using computers and i bought a new laptop but cannot connect to the internet. it comes up with saying when i diagnose the problem that the local area connection does not have a valid ip configuration

is there anything that i can do to fix this

thanks




Hello everyone. I am at my wits end. As the title states, I am without internet connectivity at home. The error in the subject is what I get when I attempt to configure my connection.

I cannot even connect directly to my router by going to 192.168.1.1. I cannot even ping it...it tells me "General Failure".

I have disabled the network card and re-enabled.

Uninstalled NIC and reinstalled.

I have reinstalled drivers, rolled back drivers and even done a system rollback.

I have tried disabling Bonjour Service, but it is not listed...neither is it listed as:
##Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B87 9762 ##"

I have tried the solution found here: kb/299357 (guess I can't post links). Using both the CLI option and the Fix It For Me thing.

I've tried to set my IP manually.

I have bi-passed my router and gone straight from the modem to the computer.

I've disabled IPv4 and/or IPv6.

My card shows up in my device manager as working perfectly (however there is a listing with an exclamation point for something called "Microsoft Teredo". When I attempt to enable it it won't start.

I then attempt to enable it and Windows tells me it doesn't have any software for it.

I am at a complete loss.

This all started because I wanted to share resources across my network and I installed IPv6 because it said IPv6 was needed to share resources across a Homegroup.

Is there something else I could be missing?

AMD Phenom II X4 955

I've been working with computers for about 15 years, this has me completely stumped.




Between 11 A.M. and 3 P.M. my Windows 7 L755-S5153 Toshiba laptop stopped receiving packets from the connection in use. Updates have not been installed since yestarday, yet the problem seemed to have happened today in my absense.

I've gone through 20+ pages of google, following just about every 'solution' given, yet the problem still persists. It is not the connection in question as my roommate has no problem connecting to it.

I've tried all the ipconfig methods, all the netsh things, I've tried using msconfig solutions, the Safe Mode with Networking method, the removing and re-adding the connection, and even repairing system restore. None of those seem to work. I've even tried connecting to another (unsecured) network and no luck. Since my laptop is offline, I cannot copy and paste the information, but tomorrow I can take the time to type it all out.




Hello everyone. This is my first post and I just wanted to say hello and thank everyone in advance for their help.

Getting down to the problem. I have been using Windows 7 beta since the public launch from build 7000 to my current 7077 x64 with no problems what so ever. About 2 weeks ago (while running build 7077) my motherboard decided to crap out on me and I had to send it in to Intel for replacement. I received my new MB and installed all my hardware, did a complete format of my HDD and installed a fresh copy of build 7077 x64.

Through the setup process, I chose the Home Network option as I have always done in the past. However I can across two problems.

Problem 1. Windows is saying that my copy is not genuine, however, I am using the key provided to me by MS! So I try to validate online, which brings me to my second problem.

Problem 2. I am unable to connect to the internet! I have tried everything I can possibly think of! The Network and Sharing center lists my network as a public network. I try to change it, but it doesnt allow me to! I have tried to troubleshoot the device and connection, I do get an error which says: The network adapter doesn't have a valid ip configuration, or, no errors could be found! I am trying to connect via ethernet cable, I have also tried using this cable to connect to the internet via my other comp using build 7077 x64 and it connects fine.

Now to the hardware I am using:

My motherboard is an Intel DX48BT2 board with an Intel 82566SC-2 Gigabit network adapter. My cable modem is connected to my ZyXel x550 and I have the ethernet cable running to my comp. The wireless router is used for my other computers throughout the house. The computer I am typing on is connected via wireless connection and is running build 7077 x64 as well. This computer shows its network as Home.

I hope I have provided adequate information to paint a clear picture, please let me know if any additional information is required. Thank you all in advance for any help you can provide.

Hello,

a long time ago i had this limited access connection issue, but somehow it dissapeared. But since last week, it suddendly popped up.
I have no idea how to fix this problem.

I have a Linksys WRT120N wireless router connected to a modem, and a desktop connected to the router (not wireless) and i have my laptop who sometimes have this "limited access" problem.
It is pretty annoying, happens once a day
and i just unplug and replug the wireless router for it to fonction again
but i want to fix this problem definitively

im not sure what is causing this problem,
however when i ran the windows diagnostic thingy,
i get 2 problems :

"wireless network connection" doesn't have a valid ip configuration
and
the default gateway is not available

thanks, help would be appreciated.
if you guys need more info, please ask
i really want to fix this !!!
(i dont have much knowledge on computers)




I have been using my laptop with no problems at home which has Windows 7 installed on the host and it has a virtual machine which is also Windows 7. But as I type this message, I am at my county's public library and I cannot get my VM to connect to the Internet. Regardless if my host OS is connected to the library's wireless router as Home, Work or Public setting, the VM gives me the following message in the Windows Network Diagnostic window:

"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Please note, that I am trying to connect my VM on a Wireless router. When I click on repair as administrator, I get the following message:

If you are connected to a hotspot or domain network, contact your network administrator.

Then it suggests I unplug/plug the router. Any suggestions, other then for me to find the county's network administrator?
