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]
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.
error: "local area network doesn't have a valid ip configuration" Problem on another machine: aCER aSPIRE w/ windows 7 Had internet previously; no changes made to machine EXCEPT swapped hardware internet connection from Links router to a temp set up on a laptop.Couldn't get laptop to connect via hardware - went wireless instead Upon return of cable to ASPIRE, got above error message. Running connection Wizard doesn't do it!
Randomly today my internet cut out I tried resetting the modem/powering it down etc nothing worked. I then tried the windows network diagnosis and it resulted in this issue "local area connection 2" doesn't have a valid ip configuration. I'm also directly connected to my modem if it matters. I never had this issue today. This issue keeps randomly occuring. I have a modem/router combo
Windows 7 Connects to local network ok, but No Internet Access, i tried to reset dns, tcp/ip, but the same problem appear, but when I'm trying using modem, internet is working fine..i get the yellow triangle with exclamation point in the taskbar saying "No Internet Access". I've tried shutting off the firewall, setting the connection to public, etc. with no change. I've also gone through the Windows Network Diagnostic process and it says... "local Area Connection 2 doesn't have a valid IP Configuration"
The above problem has just occurred. I am networking a W7 computer to an Windows XP SP3 via a Cat 5 cable connection. Checks of all cables and NIC interfaces show that there ok. I can ping each NIC card and get a response. The NIC cards are configured for obtaining automatic addresses. My connection to the Internet via a Motorola Surfboard modem is ok. I have checked the drivers and they are ok.
I have a WRT54GC Router with 4 Windows 7 (all Home Verions)PCs.3 were running hard wire LAN, one notebook I was using wireless.I logged into the modem to change my security settings.I no sooner tried to save a password change, when the router locked up.I lost all internet connections. Did the normal reset modem, reset router, reboot, etc thing.Bottom line, I took out the router, and have just an 4 port switch connected to the modem.One desktop PC off of the switch still connects. On all other 3 PCS, I get the dreaded "Local Area Connection Doesn't Have a Valid IP Configuration."It's not a switch or cable problem. I connected my notebook via LAN to the same cable as the one PC that still connects, no luck.I've tried the ipconfig/release and renew, no luck. On the notebook, I even did a restore to a point about 3 weeks ago, no luck. Then today reinstalled the O/S.
I just got my internet hooked up in my new apartment yesterday, and it is not working when plugged directly into my laptop. It worked fine on the installer's laptop.A buddy of mine let me borrow his wireless rory to connect. I've tried disabling IPv6, restarting both the modem and my laptop, and updating the ethernet driver, which I could not find (HP dv2715nr is my model and I have windows 7 ultimate). elow is my ipconfig with the modem plugged in and the wireless turned off.

I have a Netgear wnr1000 v3 router. & At about 12:00pm central standard time. It kinda messed up.. This is the Problem.. I have seen this "Local Area Connection" Doesn't have a valid IP configuration. I've browsed and browsed and browsed.. Over and over trying every solution. It's gotten me so frustrated.. I don't want to return the router.. Nothing works for me.
I was just playing a game, hosting a server with Hamachi, when all of a sudden, I disconnect from the internet. The Windows diagnostic says what I posted in the title. I have tried multiple things to get this working, but nothing seems to work. I have tried ipconfig /release, then going in the settings and tricking the network into giving me a new IP then typing ipconfig /renew. And that didn't work. I have deleted the Bonjour thing out of my services.
I just did a fresh install of windows 7 x64 on a 2tb hd. the only drivers I have installed are the chipset, the onboard audio, usb 3.0, onboard HD GFX, marvell raid controller, and the intel management engine. The only other program installed is intel desktop utility. my onboard NIC is not working. i get an error saying the Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration. I've tried setting the IP's and DNS addresses manually. I've tried disabling flow control. I've tried disabling IPV6. I've tried restarting the computer numerous times. The cable is fine, it was working yesterday. This also happened a couple days ago when I uninstalled my BigFoot 2100NIC, so I just said screw it and reinstalled it and internet worked great after that. I've tried pinging two adresses and it failed to ping 192.168.1.1 (the router address). I'm considering just installing the BigFoot I have right next to me, but i'm hesitant because the whole point of the clean OS install was to diagnose a stop 124 BSOD. I guess the question is would I rather have internets or GPU (the hardware I was planning on installing next), but its puzzling me why my onboard NIC is not working.
Here's my IPconfig/all. I've already reset ipv4,ipv6 and winsock through cmd with admin.

I couldn't connect wirelessly to my NETGEAR router because of the "DNS server isn't responding" error.I then eventually made the rather dumb mistake of doing a factory reset, so now the router isn't even in range apparently Therefore I connected to the router with a wired connection and after a "Investigate router or broadband modem issues" error I eventually came to the error in the title.Currently I'm connected directly via my virgin modem with a wired connection, so this is my means of creating this thread.
Below is what i got from ipconfig /all using a wired connection to my router.

"Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration", and then we are disconnected from the internet. We both can get back on pretty quickly by using the troubleshoot option on our desktops network button on the taskbar, however we'd like to know how to completely eradicate the disconnects as we both game online. We are using a Telus router which we received around a month ago. My brother is connected wirelessly and I am hardwired in. We are both using Windows 7 with newer PC's (within the past year). Neither of us have a clue about networking so we are totally blanked on what settings to tweak to fix this issue, especially since it's not exclusively wireless or wired-in.
It has worked quiet well with internet connection for about a week.now from the last three days,network is not connecting even in lan and wireless connection I have tried the same lan connection with other desktop.It is working in that computer when troubleshooted,it is showing message as local area connection doesn't have valid ip configuration I have tried disabling the ip6 and only enabling ip4,but of no use when ping is run,it is showing as general failure?
The last few days I had been getting the error that: "Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration" whenever I reboot my computer. I have to power cycle the router before I can get back the internet connection. Checked on the web and tried various solutions which did not work. So I tried using various firmwares for the WRT160N V2 like V2.03 Build 7 and Build 9. Still did not work. Finally reverted back to my old and trusted FW2.02 Build 8. And this seemed to improve the situation. However, the error will still appear from time to time though not as frequently.
I am setting up a new E4200 modem, and have not been able to use the wired connection. The Windows 7 diagnositic on all three computers tells me "Local Area Connection, doesn't have a valid IP configuration."Model: E4200v1..I am using a new E4200 router, along with a new SE1500 5-port switch and a new SE2800 8-port switch.I am using a wired network that consists of two desktop computers, a laptop computer, a network printer, three Direct TV recorders, two Roku streaming video players, a BluRay player, and an XBox gaming console.Here is what I have done so far.
1- I can bypass the router to establish a direct wired connection to the cable modem. This works to access the internet. It establishes a new wired connection called Network 2. 2- I can access the internet using the wireless connection to the router. It shows a valid IPv4 address. 3- With all cables in place, all the lights are flashing on the router and on the computers. 4- I had changed cables and swapped cable ends. 5- Using the wireless connection, I can access the router home page (192.168.1.1). It shows valid IP addresses.
The problem is that my old Linksys BEFSR81 stopped working, with the same eror message for the LAN connection, "Local Area Connection, doesn't have a valid IP configuration."How often does the WAN port go bad? On both a five-year old BEFSR81, and a brand new E4200?
I had just restarted my computer last night, and may have ended a process on the task manager that might have caused my internet to cease working and this error message to appear. Ive tried resetting the modem/router, resetting winsock and tcp ip whatnot in the command prompt?
Yesterday my internet (Via Cable) was working fine on my desktop, today it keeps telling me "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. My W-Lan works fine, I've replaced the cable with another cable, restarted everything five times over, and even tried plugging the computer directly into a wall.
When I connected my laptop via cable (tried several) It gave me the same error...?
i m not about to convinced what above are mentioned coz. i am having same problem (tried already above given tricks but noway to geting intenet access) is anbody there to reply from this tech center or simply this i called tech center without tech people..
I am using an ethernet cable to connect my desktop to a Linksys router but I am getting the following message "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid ip configuration.I have connected to other routers so I do not believe that the card is at fault.So far I have tried the following:
Swapping ethernet cables Connecting to router connecting to modem power cycling router/modem/computer downloading new driver
I recently hooked my computer back up after moving and the Internet is not working. After going through the troubleshooting steps it gives the message local area connection does not have valid ip configuration. I have a net gear router and the wifi works fine on my phone and laptop.
I had my computer hooked up to the internet thru a wireless adapter and it broke so trying to hook it up thru a direct connection Ethernet cord into my router but its not working been giving me a couple answers to the problem one being that the local area connection doesn't have a valid up configuration and one other that hasn't popped up recently for me to write down but I've been searching all kinds of forums and trying all the usual problem fixers but I don't have a disk to reboot my operating system or anything and can't restore to previous settings cause the person I bought it from had it set to not make a back up recovery file I was thinking it might have something to do with the wireless adapter being installed but I can't find anywhere to uninstall that or change my settings off of a wireless adaptor situation... What should I do?
This is the message I get when diagnosing my hardwire connection to the internet. I just got this computer yesterday and it worked find. I allowed it to implement all the windows updates during the afternoon. I don't recall if the hardwired connection stopped working after all the updates occurred. Today, when I started up the computer, there is no hard wire internet connection. The computer has a wireless connection option and fortunately that works. I called tech support and they said they would just send me a refund, thinking it's the network card. But, the tech seemed not to have much knowledge or interest in trying to fix the problem. I uninstalled the adapter in device manager and let it reinstall itself. It says its working properly.
PS Computer is a Gateway SX2803 desktop with Windows Home 7 Premium
I am currently experiencing difficulties setting up a Netgear router (WNR834B). The router I had been using previously allowed me to access the internet, but frequently dropped the connection, especially when I connected to it via my laptop. I have the new router set up correctly (I even get a signal from it) but both the desktop computer I set it up through and my laptop cannot access the internet. When I diagnose the connection issue I get the message "The network adapter "Local Area Connection" does not have a valid IP configuration."
I know this question seems to come out a lot but I can't seem to fix it. I am a college student and my internet has worked 100% fine until I went home this weekend and came back. It worked this weekend when I brought my computer home and when I came back today it gives me this error when I try to troubleshoot. The only thing that could have changed is when I went home I set my DNS to be openDNS because it makes a huge difference there, but I changed it back when I got here. I don't know if that would matter, but unplugging and restarting are doing nothing.
I'm using an ethernet cord to connect to my internet and it has been working well until Thursday morning when I turned on my laptop (Windows 8) to see a yellow triangle sign in the bottom right hand corner, in front of the ethernet connected symbol. Since then I haven't been able been able to access the internet from my computer. When I hover over it, it says that it is an "Unidentified network" and there is "No internet access". I've run the Windows 8 troubleshooting and it says that the problem found was ""Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration", but I'm unsure how to fix it.
I'm thinking that the problem is to do with my computer rather than my network, because I've tried another laptop (Windows 7) through the same ethernet cable and connection and the internet works fine on the other laptop. I've tried so many fixes that I've found online, with none of them actually working. Yesterday I even tried a full system reset, where I reinstalled Windows 8, repartitioned and wiped everything off the hard drive, but it still appears have the exact same problem.
Today I also purchased and tried a new ethernet cable which didn't work, so I then purchased a USB to Ethernet adapter, to make sure that it wasn't my ethernet port on my laptop that was faulty. That didn't work either, and the same problem still remains.
