Acer Aspire 5520 - Media Disconnected / IP Address Won't Renew
Apr 28, 2011
I'm visiting family and my laptop will not connect to their wireless. I plugged it in and it connected, but wireless will not. I've tried to renew my ip but it tells me media is disconnected. How do I connect the media? I'm in the device mgr now, looking at network adapters. have yellow !! on Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #5. I opened it and there is no "value" for Network address. I've got Acer Aspire 5520, w/SP2, 2.00GB, 32-bit,AMD Turion 64 X2 1.80 GHz. Windows Vista Home Premium. message rec'd is "No operation can be performed on wireless network connection while it has its media disconnected."
When I connected to the Internet by using WiFi, my laptop will suddenly disconnected. Sometimes it works to fix it with troubleshooter but sometimes I have to restart my laptop again and again. The troubleshooter mentioned it can be driver/network adapter problem but how to stop DC. I sent my laptop to the service center, they said this is not about my network adapter problem and asked me to reformat my laptop and check whether this issue can be solved or not.
I have an acer aspire 5520. Our wireless connection has worked fine for years and now all of the sudden it will no longer work. I have tries system restore and just about everything else suggested and it still is not working.
Anyway, I have an hp desktop pc, running windows 7, with high speed cable connection.. Im attempting to obtain a new ip address.. but when I go to command prompt, and type in ipconfig/release, I get an error telling me that "No operation can be performed on Local Area Connection 2 while it has its media disconnected"
My hard drive crashed and I replaced it with a old hard drive that I had and now I cant get connected. I tried different things I have on site and its still not working. After trying the last thing I have given up ..

I am able to connect the other laptops and gaming consoles that we have at the house. My brother's laptop is an Acer Aspire 5520. Whenever I tried connecting to the router. It would sometimes accept my wpa key at the same time it would give me a valid IP Address. But for some reason it says on the connection status "Unidentified Network" What I did was I enabled guest zone. I was able to connect thru a guest account without using any WPA key.
My dad just had to send his Acer Aspire back to the manufacturer to get the fan replaced. It came back factory reset and would not connect to any internet wired or otherwise. He called me and I asked him to bring it over. I can get it to connect to via Ethernet at my house, however, wireless is a no go. The status bar goes between "no connection available" to showing my network with two bars. When I attempt to connect to my network I get the standard "Window was unable to connect to this network". I currently have another PC, a PS3, a smart phone, and a tablet all connected with no problem (and all at full bars), so I know it's not the router. I ran an ipconfig /all and this is what I got: [code] One thing I did notice is that my IP Routing Enabled was set to NO and when I looked at how to fix that it said to update a registry key.
I am having problems with my internet connection through my desktop but my laptops are still working. From searching this site it appears to be a media disconnected error. Most of the fixes I have seen have been for laptops but I am having trouble finding fixes for a desktop (ethernet connected). Can somebody attach a link if this has already been coverered (I am sure it has but I just can't find it). I have a Compaq computer running Vista Service Pack 2.
I have just upgraded a laptop to vista, I didn't have any internet connection until I used a dongle to connect, after connection, it downloaded drivers to computer. Wireless now works without the dongle. I have no wired connection as it says "Media Disconnected." If I look in device manager, everything is working fine. I have looked on the net & tried a lot of checking various things but still no connection on lan. This is on an old laptop a advent 7109A. It was working fine on all connections until I upgraded.
when i open up my network connections tab, i see two icons: "Wireless network Connection" and "Local Area Connection"
It clearly says a cable is unplugged, but no cable is unplugged and i am 100% sure of that.
when i type "ipconfig" into command prompt, i see all these things that say "tunnel adapter Local area connection" and it says media disconnected.
how would i go about "Connecting" the media? i am concerned about this issue so much because, even though i can connect to the internet (ip:192.168.1.1) i cannot connect to my printer (ip:192.168.1.4) and when i tracert the printers ip it says "media disconnected" so i know the two errors correlate to one another.
Can't connect to the wireless network that is in the next room but I can connect across the street, I keep getting the message that the LAN Media connection is DISCONNECTED on connection 2, the computer trys to RENEW the IP address but can never do it, I have run CMD propmts pconfig/release, ipconfig/renew, ipconfig/all nothing works for my home system yet my laptop is connected my tower is running on the guy across the street.

I had problems connecting to my wireless internet for extended periods of time with my lease expiring almost instantly. Nobody else in my house had trouble connecting, only me. Troubleshooting the connection only showed that the default gateway was not available and failed to allow me to connect despite "fixing" the problem. I attempted the ipconfig/renew, netsh int ip reset reset.log, and netsh winsock reset catalog operations in cmd as an administrator to no avail. Finally, as a last resort, I reset my modem and that finally allowed me to connect although occasionally I would be kicked off the connection and have to restart the modem again. I would still like to know the problem and a possible solution since my friends seem to have a similar problem with their wireless internet.
ipconfig/all before resetting the modem:

I know there was an old thread with a similar problem, but that thread is closed and the answers didn't work for me. i am using an HP compaq 8710p, with windows xp. I moved to a new house so am using a new wireless for the first time. My laptop detects the wireless (and other wireless connections nearby) but will not connect. My iphone is connected to the wireless, and the wired connection to my laptop is fine. So the problem is my laptop.When I try to renew ip this is the message I get;

I need to set a Windows 7 machine up as a static address and do an arp -s to a blocked router to send it a fresh firmware.Setting a static address that I could ping was never a problem in Windows XP, but for some reason Windows 7 have decided to be very passive about assigning a static IP until it gets an active connection.With an active connection there is no connection problems, but with a passive (where there is no response) I get a "Media disconnected" from ipconfig and the adapter don't get an IP assigned.I need to tell Windows not to try verify the connection, but just assign the static IP as before. I believe I somehow have to disable autoconfiguration for that network device, since assigning the static IP alone doesn't seem to do it. Turning off the DHCP Client alone doesn't do it either and shouldn't really be needed. get an IP assigned to the interface (and ignore the "Media connected" part)?
I have a US Robotics 5462 router and a D-Link DCM-202 cable modem on Comcast. I've had this router for years and initially configured it for wireless access using a Windows XP system (this router requires you to configure it via Ethernet and 192.168.2.1). That computer stopped working last year, so I got a new computer running Windows 7.When I first got this new PC, I could not connect to my router via Ethernet (just like I can't now), but I was still able to connect to the wireless network I had previously set up, so I was satisfied.
A year went by, and last week I was suddenly unable to access my wireless network, so I did a factory reset on the router, erasing my previously configured wireless network and requiring me to connect the router to my computer via Ethernet to reconfigure the router. I tried to do this, but despite all of the correct LEDs being lit on the router, I could not access 192.168.2.1. A little poking around on my control panel revealed that my LAN was being labeled as an "Unidentified Network" and there was "No Internet Access." I tried to make it a private network, but that didn't fix the issue.
I searched around for a while and read some advice to try running ipconfig. When I did that, I saw "Media Disconnected" for my LAN adapter. I've tried a few of the possible solutions already with no luck. With the same computer and the same Ethernet cable directly connected to my modem instead of through the router, I *CAN* get online. That's how I'm connected right now. Also, I have no problem accessing any wi-fi networks.
I have searched so many threads concerning the problem I am having but have yet to find anything that works.On Sunday my husband changed our router. We have just moved from Sky to Talk Talk. Before the change, my wireless connection was absolutely fine.Now, everything else in the house is working on wireless fine (xBox, my smartphone, hubby's PC) except for my crappy Lenovo N 500 (XP SP3).Here is a copy/paste from my ipconfig /all:[CODE]
I needed to change my password to my wifi so after watching a youtube video I followed these instructions:Go to search program files : cmd Enter: ipconfig Get gateway ip address Go to internet explorer enter ip address Once admin log on comes on log on and I went on to change wireless password Once I did change password after that it would not comment to my wireless wifi Connection. I once again went to cmd then ipconfig where there it then said media disconnected. I mess something up since now nothing can connected to WiFi?
I have been searching forums for the last 2 hours and trying to figure out how to make this work. I tried to release/renew and it told me it couldn't and got the media disconnected message. I tried the TCP/IP and Winsock renew and that didn't work either. My internet was working OK and then all the sudden it stopped working. [code]
I have 2 laptops, only one of which connects to the Internet. The second, a Dell XPS, no longer connects to the Internet/network. Recently I updated the driver for the wireless adapter, Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230; however I later learned that there is a compatibility issue for 6230 and Windows 8. So, I rolled back the driver for the wireless network adapter, both to an Intel-provided legacy driver and to the Dell-provided driver. However, using either driver, the my computer won't connect. Running ipconfig states the Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi: Media State... Media Disconnected.
Dell Tech support regarded this a sensitive issue, which would require purchasing a new, premium software warranty.
I have a fairly new Inpsiron 14z with windows 8 on it. Everything worked great out of the box, but all of a sudden my wireless stopped working. More specifically, it always says that the wifi is off, and pressing alt+f2 only cycles the bluetooth on and off, not doing anything about the wifi. Maybe I am just missing something stupid, I don't know. Here is my info:

I have a laptop - Lenovo E43 in which i tried to connect with wifi, when wireless nework connection is opened, it is showing No wireless networks were found in range. and when IPCONFIGured, Media state...:Media disconnected is displaying under the Ethernet adapter Wireless Network connection.
I am trying to connect to my son's wireless internet with my own laptop. I can't get it to connect - I have tried to "renew IP address" and it doesn't work. I also got a message when I went to Start Run, etc etc "no operation can be performed on Wireless network while is has its media disconnected" I am able to connect to my own wireless internet at home on same laptop.
I'm trying to create an Ad-hoc network for use with my Android phone, however the phone does not discover the network.I've browsed various forums and tried a few things, but with no success.My laptop is able to detect other wireless networks. Wired Ethernet connection works fine.ipconfig /all results are below. The broadcom wireless LAN adapter shows Media Disconnected.I'm running Norton Internet Security and HP Wireless Assistant.
I have an Acer Aspire 3810T, recently I reloaded windows 7 to get rid of a virus. It functioned normally for about a day and then it stopped connecting to the internetEvery other wifi enabled device I have connects just fine so its not my modem. It says its connected to the network but there's no internet access. I've tried troubleshooting, but the only suggestion it gives me is to reset my modem, which I know isnt the problem.
My Acer One Aspire wireless connection shows connected but I cant get any Firefox browser to work.
I have a D-link DIR-825 router and it has worked every time except today. I havent used my Netbook very much at home though, maybe a few times a year as I usually take it with me on trips.
I attempted to narrow down the problem. I called D-link as my router was still under warranty. They advised clearing all my old connections and rebooting but I got the same problem. I told them my Sony PS3 works, so they suggested I contact Acer as they think it is not the router. My direct hardwire connection also works.
I then took my Netbook to Best Buy and it worked there. The guy said they can pay a visit to my house as it is probably interference of some sort. This will cost $100. Why would my PS3 work if it was interference? Maybe it�s the proximity of my Netbook to something, but I tried it near my PS3 and it still had the same problem.
Id rather try to solve the problem myself first. I havent changed anything except a modem and Windows 7 updates.
Do I need different network settings for when I am connected with my Rogers Rocket Stick vs when I am connected to my home Bell router? When I am at the cottage using the Rocket Stick, I have a good strong connection but, getting to web sites is extremely slow if at all. Win 7 on Acer Aspire One 522, 2 GB RAM
I have a Acer Aspire 5738Z (Pentium Dual-Core T4200 Processor 2.0GHz, 3GB RAM) laptop for a long time now I've had problems with my internet connection. Quite often the laptop will connect to the wireless network but then very soon after it will go from being able to access "local and internet" to it just saying it can access just "local" meaning that when this happens I cannot connect to anything. often i disconnect from the wireless network then re connect to it and the internet will come back briefly but I am having to do this procedure over and over again and I know there must be something which I can do about it.
My family recently purchased an Acer Aspire One netbook running Windows 7. Unfortunately, once I got it out of the box and tried to connect to the internet, I had some problems.My family predominantly uses Apple devices - in fact, this netbook is the only PC that we have in the house. All of our Apple devices work wonderfully with our current Wi-Fi connection (iPhone, iPad, MacBooks, etc).The Acer is able to detect our wireless, and it even says that it's "connected" with excellent signal strength. However, it says it is an "Unidentified Network" with "no internet access." To see if this problem limited to just that wi-fi connection, I hooked up my Verizon Wireless Mi-Fi and it worked just fine with the Acer.
