Wireless Network Stuck On Acquiring Network Address And Cannot Renew IP

Jul 5, 2011

A few days ago the internet on my desktop was working fine. now it has the 'limited or no connectivity' sign on it and i have done a few things to try and fix this. I started by trying a simple repair. it comes up with 'the following action can not be completed: Renewing your IP address' This lead me to try and restart my PC and router with no luck.

I then decided to look a bit further into it and went ito CMD and flushed the DNS. i then did 'ipconfig /release' which generated the response 'IP address for adapter wireless connection 9 has allready been released'. I then did 'ipconfig /renew' to which it generated an interestin response:

'An error occurred while renewing interface wireless network connection 9 : The RPC server is unavailable'

I have made sure my DNS client is on automatic, alont with my RPC (this was uneditable). Its not a router problem as i have had multiple devices connected before and my laptop is working just fine connecting wirelessly.

Wireless Stuck On Acquiring Network Address?

Oct 14, 2011

I'm running a Windows XP Dell laptop. A few days ago I completely reformatted the computer because it was just starting to run slow. I reinstalled Windows from the factory CD and downloaded the latest drivers from Dell's website. Now suddenly, after the reformat, my network connection gets stuck on "Acquiring network address." Running ipconfig shows either or a blank space for each field.Other laptops in the house work fine.I did discover that I can get it to say "Connected" if I go into the advanced settings and manually enter an IP address and use the subnet and gateway from my desktop's ipconfig results. The problem is that I can't actually get on the internet. It just says it's "connected."

Stuck At Acquiring Network Address?

Jan 19, 2011

I was connected on wifi and all of a sudden I got disconnected and hasn't been able to connect since. This happened Sunday night and it's now Thursday. I got stuck on acquiring network address. I've been using the same wifi connection for about 7 months now and this never happened before.

All the other laptops at home (Mac and XP) could connect except me. I tried to google over my phone but still wasn't able to fix it.

This is what the ipconfig says:

Windows XP Stuck Acquiring Network Address?

Mar 28, 2012

My Dell was running very slow, so I used the disks that came with the computer to reinstall Windows XP. After doing this, it wasn't detecting our wireless network. I went through on the drivers disk and installed the drivers in order according to Dell's specifications. It still wouldn't work, so I went to the dell website from another computer, and downloaded the drivers that pertained to the network. Now it is recognizing the network, I was able to enter my key, but it won't stop "acquiring network address". When I do the ipconfig /all, it looks like there is no IP address:

Windows Xp Stuck On Acquiring Network Address Or Limited Connectivity

Oct 23, 2011

I connect to the internet using a wireless USB. I woke up this morning and the internet showed that it was connected yet it wouldn't allow me to open the web or anything such as "msngr" I took the wireless card out for a couple minutes and then tried. That didnt do anything but say acquiring network address. I am not that knowledgeable when it comes to computers but these are the things that I have tried so far :

I went into properties and configure USB . . Made sure that the SSID said "Any" I Also tried going into properties and tcp/IP internet protocol and made sure it was on obtain IP address automatically . Hmm I tried. RUN>SERVICES> to make sure that the DHCP and TCP were started and on Automatic. I then tried system restore :- (went back about 2 weeks) . . Nothing. I then tried RUN>CMD>IPCONFIG/RELEASE *ENTER* IPCONFIG/RENEW *ENTER*.

when I did that it showed wireless network is now connected, yet back to ground zero. It wont let me browse. Its not really connected. When I look at the connection status, signal strenghth is good. Packets sent & received are good. I feel like there is just something little that. I am not getting, that is making this happen.

Uninstalled Network Adapters As Laptop Was Acquiring Network Address?

May 20, 2012

... and made a fundamental mistake of uninstalling adapters hastily without looking into it. Now when I try to re-install the adapters, I'm running into difficulties. Specifically, I don't have the CD-ROM I originally must have used, and the following message is popping up: "Files Needed - The file 'atl02_2k.sys' on Atlansic Fast Ethernet Adapter Installation Disk is needed. Type the path where the file is located and then click OK." Unfortunately, I don't have any idea if there is a path where this is located, so installation cannot complete.

The reason I took this option to begin with was that the wireless connection on my laptop [Asus, Windows XP] was acquiring network address without ever connecting fully to the internet. I had previously tried another of other methods, such as manually entering an IP address, to no avail.

Dell :: Inspiron Mini 10 - Wireless Connection - Acquiring Network Address

Oct 5, 2009

I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Netbook, when I'm trying to connect to a wireless network I get the message 'Acquring Network Address'. I can connect fine using a wired connection, but using the Wirless 1397 WLAN Mini card it won't connect.

I tried to log a call with Dell as the machine is only 2 months old and someone remotely connected and said it was a software fault not hardware and they would charge me to resolve the issue. I found that hard to swallow so thought I would try here.

Acquiring Network Address

Dec 13, 2011

my daughter accessed a website and got the XP Security 2012 virus on her laptop. Then she went on my pc and did the same thing. Fortunately, it appears that I have gotten both systems cleaned up. At this point my system seems to be fully functional, but her laptop is another story. It is working ok, except that we cannot connect to the internet/network with it. It seems to be stuck on the "acquiring network address" loop. I am not super computer savvy, but I have looked at the device manager for issues (found none).

Acquiring Network Address Hangup?

Oct 31, 2011

I recently started a thread called 'Network Controller Not Found (clueless!)' which highlighted a problem I had with a RaLink Wireless Adapter and the system not locating the correct driver. It's now found the Ralink Wireless Turbo 802.11g driver and wireless connectivity is live. However I have a new problem with connecting to the BT Homehub. BT Fon and Openzone connections are fine, and it finds my BT homehub by name, but on clicking 'connect' I have a constant 'acquiring network address' over the icon in the system tray. I've seen this problem mentioned before, but am completely new to setting up wireless connections, so don't understand much of the terminology at all! Even when trying to reinstall from CD, the homehub is not indentified, resorting to wired setup. I've looked at other threads but just don't know where to begin. I've followed instructions and reset the homehub, but nothing. The IP address values are 0, is thing something to address (no pun intended)?

Here is a rundown of a wireless networking test.

Acquiring Network Address But Works Perfectly On All Other Networks

Feb 28, 2011

I'm working on a friends laptop that used to connect wirelessly to their network no problem, and all of a sudden it would no longer connect at all. It a 5 year old Gateway laptop running Windows XP Media Center. It just hangs at "Acquiring network access" and never connects. I'm pretty sure it's their network because it works on my home network perfectly, connects and stays connected.

Can you give me some pointers to do to the laptop and/or the network? I normally would start fresh with the wireless network, but they have a bundle package of AT&T (internet, phone & TV all-in-one) so the router is branded AT&T and don't want to mess any of that up.

LAN Connection Speed 100 Mbps - Acquiring Network Address

May 12, 2012

Recently, I am having an issue with my LAN connection. After I boot up, I get the "two computer" icon in my system tray that stays active. When I mouse over it, it says "Local Area Network Speed 100 Mbps Status - Acquiring Network Address"However, I am connected to the internet and there seems to be no connectivity problems. And it has an IP address: This "acquiring network address" will persist forever, (although sometimes it will quit). If I right-click and do repair, the problem disappears immediately.I am running Win XP SP3 and am connected by ethernet cable to an ATT-U-verse Gateway.For what it's worth, Windows takes a very long time to boot up -- it takes a while for the icon to appear, and then the boot process completes.

I have a Dell Latitude D620 and my wireless isn't working. It worked before but then I had a malware/spyware on my computer that blocked my wifi and when I managed to get the program off, my wifi still wouldn't connect. It's not the wireless card because I bought an external one and it did the same thing. It's not my router because my other computer connects to the internet.

Wireless :: Limited Or No Connectivity / Can't Renew Ip Address?

Nov 6, 2011

I use this computer at work and at home on wireless network. At work it has been fine but at home I sometimes get the "Limited or no conectivity" message. I have not tried any solutions yet as it usually goes away if I reboot and if that does not do it taking it to work (where it works FINE) and then back home ususlly fixes the problem. Last night I was able to go online and google something but when I clicked on a link it did nothing for several minutes and THEN told me I had 'Limited or no conectivity' where just a few minutes before I was 'connected' signal strength 'excellent'. When I click on 'repair connection' it tells me it can not renew IP address.As stated I have not tried anything, changed anything, and there is no one else using computers on the network

Wireless :: Unable To Connect / Cannot Renew IP Address

Aug 22, 2011

I have not been able to connect to the wireless connection. I have had some trouble with this in the past when booting up, but usually I can manually select our wireless network on my own and it works fine. But since last week, I have not been able to connect at all. On the Wireless Connection Status, it showed Limited or No connectivity. I tried the repair button in the Wireless Network Connection Status Support tab, and that told me that I cannot connect because I could not renew my IP address.I have tried a few different things, such as doing an ipconfig /release and /renew. Schools coming up, and itd be nice to have internet access on the laptop as well as our desktop.

Wireless :: Network Key Stuck With Old Password?

Jan 9, 2011

Can't connect to my own Wireless Network? My Gateway Laptop network key is stuck with an old password? It seems to accept new password but never does connect, and when I retry, there's the old password back again, which I don't remember and was for the other modem. Have tried deleting the Realtec Wireless Adapter and reinstalling but the old password still returns? Tried renaming Wireless Network but old password still returns? Tried accessing Registry with no luck. Only way the Laptop can access is to leave Wireless Network Open/Unsecured, but that's not an option.

2wire 2701HG-B Wireless Router / Dsl Modem Combo / Can't Renew IP Address

May 13, 2011

I'm using a 2wire 2701HG-B wireless router/dsl modem combo. My computer is a Win 7 Ultimate 64bit. The router/modem has been reliable for the last 2 years.. hardly ever needing a reset, reboot, or anything. Then all of a sudden my wifi network didn't show up anymore. I did a reboot, nothing. Kind of weird so I got on the phone with AT&T and they walked me through some simple stuff and they determined it's either the router or my computer. Well I know it's not the computer, I can use the mobile hotspot on my android phone and it gets on just fine.All of the lights on the router are green, AT&T showed that all the tests show the internet connection is working. Since the router is not sending out a wifi signal anymore, I had to plug the ethernet cable in. The system recognizes a connection but says it isn't connected because it is a "public" connection. Additionally, if I go to network connections with the cable plugged in, I can see my DirecTV DVR is showing on the network (because it is connected to the router via ethernet too). So it isn't broadcasting wifi, I can see my DVR over the network in windows, but I can't get the IP renewed.

Here is the ipconfig /all print:

Windows IP Configuration

Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Broadcast

WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No


When I try to do an ipconfig /renew, it says this:Windows IP Configuration An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : The operation was canceled by the user.An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1 : The system cannot find the file specified.The AT&T rep said I may need a new modem and router. It seems weird because it worked fine one night, then the next night all of a sudden it didn't work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 (firmware 1.0.03) Fails To Renew IP Address

Dec 1, 2011

After an indeterminate period my E4200 (firmware version 1.0.03) stops renewing the Internet IP address. This happens in both router mode and bridge mode.In router mode the E4200 is set for DHCP and connected to the cable modem, in bridge mode it is connected to a Dell switch  with DHCP being provided by my Win2008R2 server.It appears that the device stops recognizing the existence of the Internet port - no lights come on when a cable is plugged in - whether connected to the cable modem or my Dell switch. Plugging the same cable into one of the 4 lan ports and that port lights up immediately (i.e. it is not a patch cable problem).If the E4200 is left switched off for some time (possibly days) it will work properly again for a while.
