Wireless adapter doesn't work on windows 7 "No Valid IP Configuration"

Q: Wireless adapter doesn't work on windows 7 "No Valid IP Configuration"

Before you answer this question, I've already done the following:
1.) Download and install the latest driver for the adapter.
2.) I've already tried ipconfig /renew or release or whatever you want to call it.
3.) I've tried changing the ip address to static and rather automatic or automatic to static...Didn't do anything.

I have absolutely no idea what to do. I've tried EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING on the internet.
When I run the troubleshooter I get this message:
Please help and any would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello all. I'm running Windows 7 professional on an HP 4320s probook. I recently uninstalled some of the HP programs because I never used them (sorry can't remember which) and now I cant connect to the internet. I get the error message in the thread's title.
I've tried ipconfig/release and the fix that has netsh ip textlog in it and i've also disabled the IP helper. None of these have worked. I looked for webroot in services.msc but couldnt find it so i don't think that's the problem either.
Any ideas?

Hi,

I am unable to access the Internet. I am connected to a wireless network, with excellent signal strength. All other devices in my home are also successfully connected to the network and have Internet access. My PC did as well until about three evenings ago, when it began displaying a yellow exclamation point on the relative icon in the system tray, as well as a red "X" on the second leg of the map within the network and sharing center. I have attempted numerous fixes over the past several days, and for several hours today alone, all from posts with a title similar to this post. However, none of these efforts have resulted in success. Incidentally, I am running Windows 7.

What would you suggest?

Finally, I am posting this from my smart phone, because I am unable to access the internet from the laptop in question, so I am unable to provide the system info as suggested above.

Thank you!

A few things to try
does it work if connected by cable

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

try doing a tcp/ip reset - see how below ( as you cant post the results, let me know about any errors)

can we see an ipconfig /all

------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

If you do not have another PC - do you have a phone connected to the internet - can you photograph the result and post the image in a reply
Note: you will see entries named Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface: we dont need to see that information - JUST the infomation above those entries

Okay, so here is my problem. I frequently bring my laptop to work where the is a public wireless signal. I work at a hospital. There is a secure network but I don't have the password for it, so I use the public one. Up until recently I used an old asus with vista, and while the signal was pretty low I had no problem connecting to it and staying connected. Just meant slow internet for me. However, that computer has sadly died and I bought a samsung NP700Z5B-S01UB. And while it's a very nice machine, I cant seem to connect to the network here. It shows that there is a low wireless signal, but it still wont let me connect. The error it gives me is "wireless network connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. Is there anything I can do with the computer to fix this problem, since I cannot do anything to the wireless network at all (as it is a network associated with the hospital). If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

A:"wireless network connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Hello mystic, and welcome to Sevenforums!

First, do you have the latest driver installed for it? I don't know what version of windows you have so here is the general link to the drivers: Samsung - you will need the wireless driver(s). Uninstall your current wireless driver before installing the new one, which means you will need to download the new one first or use a LAN cable to have an internet connection to download the driver.

Here is an internet troubleshooting guide you might be able to use: Internet Troubleshooting Guide

However, it sounds like this computer works at home, just not at the hospitol, so it may be some kind of incompatability or any number of reasons. Make sure you have all windows updates installed as that can sometimes help such issues.

The network is showing as an unidentified network?

There is also a desktop PC connected to fine to the router.

I have read pretty much every forum on the internet and still have had no luck.

Things I have already done :

- Removed the network profile
- Flushed DNS cache successfully
-Restared the DHCP services ( disabled, enabled, and restarted)
- Restarted the Bonjour service
- Disabled both windows firewall, and Commodo firewall
- Disabled, re enabled my wireless card, both with the function key, and through device manager
- Turned of my router for minutes numerous times.

I have done pretty much everything I can think of, I really don't want to resort to reinstalling windows.

-open a command windows ("win"key+"r"key, type "cmd" then hit enter)

-when its done, type "ipconfig /renew"(without the quotes)

if this dont work try restarting both your modem and router and try again.

As the above title describes ""Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

I've tried every possible fix. CMD -> ipconfig /release - ipconfig /renew - reboot computer, nothing happens.

On the Network Sharing Center - I get my Network shown as "Unidentified Network."

I tried Uninstalling and Re-Installing the NIC, no luck. Updating the Driver didn't help either as it says it's up-to-date.

I've tried manually assigning the IP address, but I don't think I did it correctly, as I am quite new with Networking problems and especially with all the IP addresses', DNS, DHCP. etc. So I need support with that and try it out whether that fix will work, although I doubt at this point since I tried everything.

I tried disabling the IPv6 as well that did nothing too.

I also RESET my router, which also had no affect. I am using the VIRGINMEDIA SUPER HUB ROUTER. It's a Fibre Optic Connection.

I also called my ISP, they suggested the Internet is all stable and has no connection problems. The Technician I spoke to over the phone said that there is something at fault with my computer itself and not the Router or Internet connection. In other words, my NIC.

Hi. So I came back to my desktop after a weekend away, and all of a sudden my wired network has changed to "Unidentified Network" with no network access. I have never had a single problem with this before and I've tried several fixes that do not do a thing. I live in a dorm and am plugged directly into the wall. I also use a switch to use an Xbox One.

Hi everyone I've run into a problem that I really don't understand and I was hoping somebody here could help me.

First a little background so you can understand the situation. My set up is that I live in a two story house and have my cable modem and a D-Link ethernet switch in my den on the ground floor. I connect to the internet via this switch, and the switch also leads upstairs to the bedrooms, where we have a D-Link wireless router. This wireless router then provides internet to all of the bedrooms (with their laptops and Ipads) upstairs, my Xbox and another computer. My computer downstairs has no wireless card so I have to access the net via a wired connection with this one.

Now everything was fine and all my devices, whether wired or wireless had access to the internet until one day, my computer in the den could NOT access the internet. I've tried all the suggestions I've seen on forums and nothing would work. I even tried moving my den computer upstairs and plugged it into the router, and it would work! I tried moving multiple laptops downstairs as well to see if it was just the computer and they also were not be able to access the internet via wired connection through the switch.
What WOULD work sometimes is if I restarted and reset the cable modem, then sometimes my downstairs internet would work. However, if the downstairs computer's internet would work, then the devices who rely on the wireless router to connect to the internet would then be unable to do so. ... Read more

For the last few months my desktop was working fine. Today morning by mistake i switched electricity off during my desktop shutdown. Later then i started my computer I saw many services like DHCP client, Windows firewall, base filtering engine and some others doesn't start with error code ACCESS DENIED.
After reading few articles and microsoft recomendations I found the reason of this error. I added permission into the registry to these services for SERVICE AND NETWORK SERVICE users. After that all services begin work fine.

But I still cannot connect to the internet. After running troubleshooting i receive and error message.
"Local area connection 2" doesn't have a valid ip configuration.

It looks like something happened with registry setting or permission which doesn't allow to work network services in proper way.

Hey ho everyone. I have a common problem that I have seen a lot of people have. I'm posting on here because I don't really know a lot about networks, but here's my story. My dad has a computer with Windows XP on it, but it is running very slow and needs to be replaced. The computer is wired to a ATT modem that has a router (both wired and wireless) in it. The internet does work with a ethernet cable plugged in on the WinXP OS, however I will mention. So he bought a new hard drive and a new version of Windows 7. He unplugged the XP hard drive and only had the new (Win 7) drive plugged in. I ran the instillation process with the cable still plugged in, never changed a thing. Once Win7 was finalized, no ethernet internet connection. We run a diagnostics and I get the error message posted in the subject. We have switched back to the WinXP hard drive and the internet is working just fine. We also formatted the Win7 hard drive and ran a new install and got the same result. Here is a little bit about my system.

Processor: Intel Core 2 1.87GH
RAM: 6GB
Graphics Card: Nvidia Gforce 9600 GT

Now I did a lot of researching last night and found a lot of posted processes. None of them worked, but a few of them gave me odd responses. I am going to copy and paste some of the processes that I have read from here.

It says I'm connected to an unidentified public network and I get the above error when I try 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).

Hello all!

I am unable to connect to the network using an Ethernet cable. I can connect wirelessly; in fact, I am using my laptop and its wireless connection to make this post. I can also connect wirelessly on my phone.

I restarted the router the first time it disconnected last night, and it worked. Perhaps an hour later, when it disconnected again, restarting the router did not help. I turned the computer off, thinking the problem would have resolved itself overnight. NOPE!
I powered down everything (pulled all cords from the power strip and turned that off, leaving it off for 20-30 minutes). Didn't work.
I then updated my Realtek drivers. Didn't work.
I unchecked TCP/IPv6 in Local Area Connection properties. Didn't work.

I'm not sure what else to do.

I downloaded TSG SysInfo, and here's the info it returned:

I'm running into an issue which is hindering the enjoyment I am getting out of my system. Quite frequently I am getting these issues where I lose connection to the internet at random times. I then "Trouble Shoot" problems with the connection and I get the fixed issue of: "Local Area Connection Doesn't have a valid IP configuration."

I've looked in several other posts, and nothing has quite worked out for me thus far. I have general medium level of understanding relating to computers. Hope to hear an answer soon.

So a few days ago, our D-Link router completely failed and the wireless doesn't work; until the problem can be settled, the only way we can connect to the Internet is if we're hooked up to the modem with an Ethernet cable. Of course only one person can use it at a time, so if Person A needs the Internet but Person B is using it on a different computer, then Person B has to unplug their Ethernet cable from the modem so that Person A can hook their cable and access the Internet on their computer.

However, my Windows 7 laptop seems to be the only computer in the house that cannot connect to the Internet, even when hooked up with an Ethernet cable; my sister's computer (also a 7) works fine, and my Mum's Vista (which I'm using right now in order to type this) works fine. My laptop is still able to connect to my work's wireless when I take it there, so I don't think it's really a problem with the laptop itself. The troubleshooter says, ""Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration", and I tried looking up some solutions on Google to try and fix it but to no avail.

I tried following the steps from this video, but that didn't work.
I tried the steps from this forum post (#4 by Tomken15), but that didn't work.

Recently we lost our Internet service.  The ISP has been unable to restore it.  When I try to access the Internet through IE 11, an error message appears stating that we are not connected to a network.  We set up a switched Windows 7 network
for out PCs to share the connection and to share a networked printer.  This local network no longer functions.  It was designated a Home network and named.  We are unable to connect to this network.  The switches (there are two 

connected together) seem to be working.

Windows Network and Sharing Center shows the red X between the Internet and our network.  It terms the latter an Undefined network."  Our attempts to connect to the network lead to a troubleshooting session.  It ends with this error message: 
"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.  The final error message we got was "This

computer can't connect to a homegroup."  We also have seen "Windows cannot set up a homegroup on this computer."

I am wondering if the valid IP configuration actually comes from our Internet connection which isn't working."

If this isn't the problem, is there anything else we could try?
Our local network connects to the Internet directly to Verizon FIOS
Our switches (there are two connected to each other) seem to be working.

Dear Tenforums users,

I have recently encountered some problems wth my relatively new Lenovo IdeaPad laptop;
whenever I try to connect to the internet using ethernet it tells me that "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

I have the Realtek PCIe GBE family controller as my ethernet device.

I have browsed the internet about it and tried to update the ethernet driver via device manager. However, even after doing that, nothing has changed. I am currently using Wifi, but at my work location the connection via WLAN is very... bad.

I hardly have any knowledge about drivers and BIOS and stuff. I hope that anyone amongst you is able and willing to help me out in this matter!

I sincerely thank you all for your time!

I have a laptop running Vista. Using an ethernet connection to our office network, normal internet connectivity works perfectly. Then I connect to a VPN, and I am able to access resources there as expected. When I disconnect from the VPN, the status of the local area network is "local only", and the internet is inaccessible. If I view the status of the local area connection and click "Diagnose", I get a message that the connection does not have a "valid IP configuration". Choosing to automatically fix it takes a few seconds and then full connectivity is restored.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this so these extra steps aren't required every time I disconnect from a VPN?
 

A:Network connection doesn't have "valid IP configuration" after disconnecting from VPN

This is probably an issue with the VPN client. Normally, when you disconnect from the VPN connection, normal networking will return.

A:"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

I remember reading that many people had issues in the past with the Nvidia NICs and were disabling them in favor of PCI add-in NICs. If you don't have one to try, it shouldn't be hard finding a friend with plenty of them. It's worth a shot, if you have access to one.

Is your laptop running Windows 7? If not, it is possible (rare, but possible) that the router isn't compatible with Windows 7.

Howdy folks. Just moved back onto campus for the year and already running into some problems. I'm able to connect to the wireless internet in my dorm just fine, but it's just god awful, so I've always used a wired connection. When I try that now though, it always comes up as "Unidentified Network" with no internet connection. Through troubleshooting, it eventually states that "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP Configuration. I cannot figure this out for the life of me. Things I've tried:

Using a different wall jack
Using a different cable
Uninstalling drivers for the ethernet adapter, then reinstalling (no issue in device manager)
Flushing dns
Winsock reset
ipconfig /release and /renew
Disabling/re-enabling adapter (after each thing I've tried)

I read somewhere to ping the addresses 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.1. The former returned normal results, <1 ms, whereas the latter returned a "General Failure." I really need to get this fixed...it took me well over a half hour just to register for this site because the wireless here is so insanely slow. Attached is the screenshots for my ipconfig /all. Thanks!

All possible solutions i have done them, am using internet currently through my WLAN usb adapter
What i have to mention also that only this PC having this problem, its possible my Network card having hardware issue? Do there is tool for checking network card performance ' test ' it
You will help me and other people which they are looking for 100% warranted solution

Well, you reloaded Windows, and the problem remains, that sure sounds like hardware to me.

I suspect this is a hardware issue, NIC, cable, or port on the router, but I'm not going to warranty that 100%, and I doubt anyone else here will either.

A:Wifi Problems "doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

From this you aren't picking up anything from the router at all, the IP showing is the default one that Msoft uses when there are no connections coming from the router.

You may want to try resetting the router or updating the router's firmware.

Your system specs aren't listed so I can't check to see if this is a possible driver problem or not.

Hi guys. So when I turned on my desktop today, I got the limited network sign. I am using Powerline, so it showed as Ethernet, just as usual. I had the powerline adaptors unplugged, since I moved my PC to another room for a day, and then back again in the old place where it used to work perfectly. Technically, the only thing I've done with the Powerline adaptors is unplugging them for around 24 hours, and then put them back in the exact same sockets. They are not in any kind of power strip, just plugged directly into the wall.
So here is what I have tried to do so far:

Restarting and replugging everything.Used Wi-Fi on the same, as well as another computer, to test if it worked (it did on both devices)Using an Ethernet cable directly from the modem/router to a laptop (worked)Re-pairing the two powerline adaptors several times (showed on the indicator lights that both were connected, just not transfering any data
Do you guys have any suggestions to what I can do to solve my problem?
My powerline kit is the PA-TL6010
When I try to troubleshoot the Ethernet connection, it says the following: "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration". Could that make it so it's easier to solve the problem?

You have probably heard this problem a lot of times and it have bin talked about in a lot of forums.
But after searching and trying almost every posable fix I could find, nothing would fix the problem ""Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration".
After playing a match in "League of Legends" with my desktop I noticed my ping went up and I disconnected right after, I looked at my network icon in the taskbar and saw an yellow error mark. I clicked on the network icon and it said "Unidentified Network" and "Limited". I tried to troubeshoot the problem and the problem found was: "Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. I ran ipconfig with the cmd tool and I noticed Ipv4 Adress was 169.254.171.146 (As ive heard that means windows is using a default ip by itself).
I have a lot of devices in my house like laptops and smart-phones that work perfectly good.
One thing that did work was sharing 3G internet from my iPhone to my desktop via usb.

Solutions tried: Resetting router, disabled the "allow computer to turn of this device to save power" in ethernet options, tried different cables, restarting pc and updated drivers (installing the driver to a usb from my laptop).

I hope someone will try to help me with my problem. Thank you!

A:"Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

That IP address is usually the result of the system not obtaining one from your router. Are you hardwired to the router and have you checked for loose cables? If the cable isn't clicked into one of the ends, it could loose your connection. Also, if you have an extra empty one, try a different router port.

Hi,

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 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.

As far as I can tell the cable is not damaged, and other devices such as phones can connect wirelessly just fine. When I run Windows Troubleshooter, it comes up with "Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration". I've tried doing a few online suggestions but to no avail. When I run ipconfig in admin command prompt, there is no Default Gateway, and no Connection-specific DNS suffix.

Any help? Thanks!

Hi,

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.

I feel like I've tried everything, so can someone please help me?

Thanks in advance,
Xuzuno

Hi,
With your Windows 7 laptop make note on IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS.
Unplug Windows 7 laptop from network and connect Windows 8 laptop instead. Configure manually exactly same as above.
If it works, then problem on DHCP configuration.

Cheers.
