Local Area Connection - No Network Access On Windows 7 Computer
Sep 17, 2011
My computer is running on Windows 7. It has had no prior internet connection problems. It is wired to my DV-2020 router. My internet suddenly disappeared, as in, it doesn't work anymore. I'm not sure as to when it disappeared due to my personal absence, but from what I heard it was either during 'starting a game' or 'installing firefox add-ons updates'. Internet does work on other computers sharing the same internet (wired and wireless). On the computer that does not have access to internet it gives a "local area connection - No Network Access" and "local area connection - unidentified network." So far I've tried:
A system restore.
Restarting the router (at home as well as the provider)
Disabling / Enabling.
I have the exact same problem: network adapter disconnects itself and I am unable to disable and enable it again, because it is unresponsive under the device manager and the network and sharing center. The only solution is to reboot the computer, where I can then have access to the network adapter and can reset it.This is since I upgraded windows vista to windows 7 4 days ago. I have upgraded all the driversI have uninstalled the network adapter driver and rebooted, and reinstalled the latest update with no difference.Running the computer in safe mode with networking has not yielded a crash so far, but have not tested this enough.I have tried disabling IPV6 as some people have said this could be reason, but it still crashes.It is somewhat different from what many people mention as I cannot reset the connection without rebooting (which I could live with). I do not use torrents or any site like that.
So I built a PC recently, using Powerline for Internet access. At first the PC wouldn't connect to the Internet so I moved the wireless router and the Powerline plug into another room and plugged them directly into the wall socket (previously they were plugged into an extension lead). I got Internet access on my PC, but 2 laptops and another PC were having trouble connecting to the Internet using Wi-FiWhen I moved the router and Powerline plug back to their original place, my PC wouldn't connect again (all other computers could) and I got the "Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration" error from the network troubleshooting tool.So it's either I'm the only one that does get Internet when I move the router, or I'm the only one that doesn't get Internet when the router's in its normal place.[CODE]
My computer can no longer connect to the internet. As I do not use an Ethernet cable, my concern is the wireless aspect. I am running Windows 7 on an HP laptop, and when I troubleshoot the problem all it pops up with is "Local Area Connection 4 adapter is disabled". When I try repairs as an administrator it just repeats the fact that the adapter is disabled, but does not provide a way for me to fix this. I have also tried going through Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Troubleshooting > Network and Internet and selecting the network adapter option, selecting the Local Area Connection 4 to diagnose. It then said troubleshooting couldn't identify a problem.
I have a problem with a direct crossover Ethernet connection between two computers. One is a Win XP laptop, the other a Win 7 64 bit desktop. I have a USB adapter on the desktop and the laptop used that to share internet with the desktop. This setup worked fine until today. There have been no network hardware changes nor software changes but the desktop's power supply recently failed and had to be replaced. After that was done I tried today to plug the adapter and cord back in and use the connection but it will not work. The connection from the modem to the desktop works fine but the connection from desktop to laptop will not detect internet access, says "Local area connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration" and has limited connectivity. Other than a new power supply absolutely nothing has been changed.
Have a Windows 7 desktop connected to a Netgear Router via a cable modem. Computer network is setup a Home Network / Access Type: Internet. Error Message:"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. Problem is fixed but the problem starts again the next time I start the desktop. Receive the error message once again.
I usually acess internet on Wi-Fi, and now I have travelled, and got my laptop with me. The internet here is Local Are Connection, the one with the cable, and it says I am connected, 100 Mbps, but no internet access! I can't browse or open anything that has to do with the internet... However, It works perfectly fine on EVERY other laptop. I've searched a lot of places and I've been told to write commands like ipconfig/ all andd netsh int ip reset.log but when I do that I get "The following command was not found : int ip reset.log" I set the properties in TCP/IP to Automatically detect settings .. but nothing.
Local Area Connection - Network Cable Unplugged I am using Professional 2000 and have a Linksys WRT54G Version 8.2 Wireless Router...have broadband connection through Brighthouse. My laptop works fine but my desk top computer keeps giving me this message.I have checked all the connections and even bought a new network cable to see if it was a hardware issue.
The link to Local area connection on the PC i am working on is no longer showing under Network and Sharing center. However the connection is up and I can access the internet. If I do an ipconfig /all I see the adapter setting as I set them. In device manager the device is working properly. I checked the BIOS and the NIC is enabled
The "Local area network connection" is not visible in Network Connections. The Ethernet controller and adapter driver is properly install (no yellow signs). All Network services are also running properly.
The network is working fine, and getting an IP address from DHCP but has to restart the DHCP service once after booting.
I have a Dell desktop with Windows XP Home Edition. I recently restored the computer to factory settings and when I tried connecting to the internet the Local Area Connection wasn't showing in My Network Places. I have been searching through other forums and tried the things that they suggested but nothing worked. I am trying to connect to an AT&T U-verse 2Wire router through a wired connection. I tried connecting both wirelessly and wired to another computer and everything worked fine. I checked the Device Manager and there is an ! mark next to the Ethernet Controller. The properties say that the drivers for that device aren't installed. And of course I can't install them since I can't access the internet. Other forums suggested that I check the network adapters option in Device Manager but that isn't available in the device manager.
My error message states that "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Registering with DNS".I have no internet connection on my HP PC, which is why I am typing this on my laptop.On the HP I am running windows xp with sp3.I connect to a cable modem provide by Time Warner.This problem started yesterday, so I have been utilizing both computers with one internet connection, or plugging and unplugging the cat5 cable.I have run Microsoft Essential Full scan, as well as Malwarebytes's Anti-malware.Now I ran both of those in Safe mode, and picked up no bugs. I have Avast as my antivirus software, and the message I receive on that is that "Avast will not be able tp protect mail/news (error 10050). I am unable to turn on the web shields for Avast.I have manually entered the IP addresses into my HP from my laptop, all the way thru DNS servers.It still won't connect.I tried using the Internet explorer diagnostic tool, and it came back and said that I have a winsock issue.
1. Internet works ok, everything is fine, but then it stops working for no reason.
2. I open Network and Sharing Center, and do diagnostics. They come up with result: "the default gateway is not available". Nothing works. But Local Area Connection and Network Controller are both enabled.
3. I have to restart computer for the internet to work again. However, it doesn't restart: it hangs forever in "shutting down" screen, and nothing happens. Probably because computer is still trying to connect to the internet (?)
4. After forced restart, internet doesn't work, but if I run diagnostics again, they come up with result: "The Local Area Connection adapter is disabled", and fixes it automatically. Internet works then.
My internet is working fine, but my Ethernet cannot get a connection. On my Ethernet Local Area Connection it says status is: Limited or no connectivity i am running an Ethernet cable from my xbox 360 to the Ethernet adapter slot at the back of my computer, no wireless or anything. And as i say the internet works fine though i cant get any connectivity out of the Ethernet adapter.This used to work fine two weeks ago, now it refuses to work i recently moved and so i disconnected my pc nothing broke and all it did was sit around in a safe place before the move EVERYTHING worked fine, On my xbox the display says:Network adapter - wired IP address - failed?i'm running windows xp sp 2?
I wasn't able to connect to my modem's Ethernet for a month, before that, i was able to use my Ethernet when connected to PC, but when i threw it away, i tried many time to connect to my modem' Ethernet but all the attempts were a failier.......Is it because of the cable that i must connect or is it the com or modem that is wrong?
I have xp pro sp3 i also connect thru fios since i restarted my computer last evening i can't connect this computer was put together for me so no original disks under network connections there is no lan connection can't use system restore tried ipconfig but says internal error and thats all when i try safe mode i see all of the network adapters but i don't see it in regular boot.
I am having this same issue. Except under Network Adapters, I don't have a yellow question mark. I have a amd Athlon(tm) 64x2 dual core processor and operate with windows XP professional service pack 2. my other computer (this pc im using) i have no problem with the connection I can to the the Internet
