Windows 7 Lan Doesn't Have A Valid IP Configuration?
Oct 9, 2012
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.
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.
Whenever I try to connect Windows XP with Windows 7 I get an error "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.I have tried a lot of tutorials and answers on different forums but could not get the answer.
I recently bought a desktop off craigslist, it has been working fine for the past month, but I was about to start up a program and it froze. (was beginning to overheat, so it froze.) So no problem, I reset the computer and when I logged on, the internet had a fashionable yellow ! sign. So I diagnosed it and received the "Local Area Network does not have a valid IP configuration." Now every single computer, wired or not, can access the internet so it is specifically my desktop. I have done literally everything suggested in multiple forums, and nothing I do seems to work. I figure instead of listing everything I have done, I will just assume that I either did it wrong, or was given false information on how to do it, so in case one of those hold true I won't be stuck thinking something didn't work.
-Internet was working -Computer froze -Reset Computer -Internet no longer working on my computer (does on other computers) -Local Area Network does not have a valid IP configuration
I'm having trouble getting my laptop to connect to the Internet over wi-Fi. If I plug it directly into the router with a cable it works fine. I have 10 other things in my house that connect over wi-Fi just fine, my pc just won't connect.
I am having this problem on my acer intel core i3 laptop I think my Network adapter is corrupt I cannot connect to my Netgear(home) router anymore... I use to be able to troubleshoot/diagnose and fix the error but now it doesn't fix it anymore.Wireless works though...the problem only occurs when I plug a network cable into the NIC... I have tried other network cables and the router at work but it gives me the same error.things I have tried to fix NIC that did not work
cmd- iprelease/renew changing things in the registry changing mac address updating netgear firmware updating NIC driver uninstalling the bonjour service
I have tried putting the ip address...dns in manually?i am running on windows 7?
the same thing happened to me Thursday as well. All the laptops and my friends computer(same exact build as my own.) had been able to connect to the internet via wireless/ethernet. However my computer does not. For quite a while it would say the address doesn't have a valid IP, now it thinks there is nothing wrong... I had wiped and reinstalled windows 4 times in a sorry attempt to fix the issue. Also, I had checked the driver for my internet and reinstalled the latest version several times. I've exhausted all the resourses I can think of
I have been having a lot of trouble getting my computer to connect to the internetIt is only one computer on the network that consistently has problems. It was working ok recently, except that I would have to turn the router off and back on fairly often, because the computer would say that the DNS lookup failed. Today it stopped working, and now says that the adapter does not have a valid ip configuration. I do not know what to do.
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"
this error is popping up when i'm trying to connect my pc to modem(cisco dpq2160) through cable..."Ethernet doesn't have valid ip configuration".. i have also tried some solutions given in other sites like ipconfig/reset in cmd. it says that there are no settings to reset..
I have an ethernet connection using a Powerline (TL-PA2010KIT), which I use for online gaming. It's been working perfectly, until today. For some reason, I can't connect - I get the little "Limited access" symbol,and no mentions of an actual connection.However, I have a wi-fi connection that works perfectly, besides fluctuations in connection sometimes, which makes it unacceptable for online gaming. I'm using a Virgin Media Superhub, so I assume that there's no problems there if the wi-fi works. Also, I'm using Windows 8 if that's any concern.
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!
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.
After my last usb wireless adaptor went faulty after a few years of use I needed a new one for my home PC.Since I had never had problems with my previous Belkin adaptor I opted for another one. model number F6D4050 V2.I am having no luck at all connecting to my home network with my PC, the laptops and games consoles at home have no trouble at all. windows troubleshooter brings up the fault: 'wireless network connection 2' doesn't have a valid IP configuration.
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.
I have a desktop PC using Windows 7 Pro. and a Airlink N 150 Mini USB wireless adapter. My 2Wire modem/router from AT&T was failing to stay connected and was replaced today with a Netgear 7550 modem/router from AT&T. I installed the Netgear 7550 and am able to access the internet with my Asus Laptop, my LG Thrill phone, and my Samsung Galaxy 2 tablet with no problems. However, my Desktop cannot connect to the internet and the Window Network diagnostics returned the following message: Network Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration. How do I go about connecting my desktop to the Netgear modem/router so that I have access to the internet? By the way I am able to connect to the internet using an ethernet cable and a LAN connection.
