I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Okay, so awhile ago I did something I was running a disk cleanup and I think I deleted some sort of cache that I thought was redundant (genius!) and now when I try to go online it just says limited or no connectivity and that the network did not assign me an IP address.

So now I have tried opening Command Prompt and typing the command: netsh winsock reset and restarting my computer as I read elsewhere on another forum that this was so-posed to fix the problem but it seems to be only a temporary fix as my internet reverts back to it's current state when I shutdown or between a time span of 10mins to 1hr!!

I went through all these steps just now: Select Start > Settings > Network Connections.
Double-click the Connection icon of the connection you wish to modify to open the Local Area Connection Status window.
Click the Properties button to open the Local Area Connection Properties window.
Click to highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
Click the Properties button to open the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties window.
TCP/IP Properties window, IP Address tab
Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
Click OK to return to the Local Area Connection Properties window.
Click OK to return to the Network Connections window.

For 2 years, My XP computer has had no problems picking up 10-20 wireless connections in my neighborhood,some i could connect to,some i could not because they were secured.

i decided to go straight , and purchase DSL.

i bought a new computer(vista) and got a westell 327 DSL modem,which is also a wireless router. The new computer is working fine, i called Verizon to set up the new computer's dsl wireless network,that worked out fine.

My old computer,the one i spoke about opening this thread, that computer immediately picked up the DSL signal from my new computer in the other room.. The signal was excellent and the name of the network WAS ON THE LIST of the dozen other wireless connections i could connect to. Problem is when i went to connect to my own DSL network, i got this error message:

"Limited or no connectivity
You might not be able to access the internet or some network resource. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer."

I typed in the correct password,the little icon in the corner of my computer said both computers were connected, and with an excellent signal strength. Reiterating: i could still connect and go online with the other avaiable networks running the computer,but not my own.

Hi Guys,

Just joined this site thinking i will get an answer to my long burning question.

I have two network connections. one WIFI and the other is through my phone nokia E63. (NPCIA) connection. I need this Nokia connection to assign to a particular program. and for all other purpose i need wifi to be used.

phone is slow connection so i need this particular program to access only through that. wifi is fast so i can use for downloads etc..

is there any way i can do this?? or even a third party software which can do this??

I am using windows 7. x32

A:if have multiple network. Assign a program to a specific network

I don't understand why you won't just use the WiFi connection for everything.

What you're asking for is a router/layer 3 switch which can do policy based routing (PBR).

My laptop picks up wireless signals just fine, I've never had a problem, except with my Dad's computer. He has the verizon modem/router, and it gives off a signal, except I always get slammed with the 'Limited to No Connectivity' balloon and it tells me the network didn't assign a network address to the computer. I don't even know what that actually means and entails let alone how to fix it.

I've rebooted the PC, the modem/router, and my laptop. I've copy and pasted into the browser to see if that would work. A verizon page did come up with a user login, but I couldn't even use that because the password field was faulty (extra characters kept showing up that I wasn't typing). My laptop and the PC are both on Windows XP so it isn't that they're too old either. I'm just not tech savvy at all. ><;

Any thoughts? If more information is needed let me know, and I'll do my best to provide it.

When I plug in the ethernet cable (which works to get me online with my other laptop) I am unable to access the web and the reason is that the network did not assign a network id to the pc.

A:network did not assign network id to this computer

A few questions.
What is your ISP and type of connection? DSL, cable, satellite, etc
What make/model modem?
What make/model router if you use one?

If your ISP is a cable company and you have a single port modem, they may be using MAC authentication of the device hooked to the modem. Since the MAC numbers of the laptops are different the modem will only work with one computer.
To use a second computer you would need to turn off tand disconnect the first computer, then turn off the modem and let it sit about 2 minutes to reset. Some newer modems have a battery backup and you would instead use the reset button on the back of the modem. After allowing the modem to reset connect the second computer and turn it on. You will need to do this every time you switch computers.

Hello, I have read a few similar posts and the resolutions but it doesn't appear to be working for me. Any help is appreciated. I apologize if I am leaving out any important info.

I'm running a Windows XP PC, wired to a Verizon FIOS modem/router, model MI424WR. I have a second computer connected via wire to this and a third computer connected wirelessly. As of 2 hours ago and for months, all 3 machines have worked fine.

My PC froze while playing a game and I reset it. This is not common but it has happened before without issue upon start up. However this time I received a limited/no connectivity message. When repair was attempted it didn't work because "the network did not assign a network address to the computer". The 2nd and 3rd PC work fine though.

Back on my first PC, when I view the details there is a physical address, IP address, and subnet mask, BUT there is no Default Gateway, DNS Server, or WINS Server.

I have tried the other suggestions I read about RESET TCP/IP stack and RESET WINSOCK entries then restarting my machine but neither of these worked.

Under device manager my NVIDEA nForce networking adapter says it is working properly and there isn't any red X or yellow indicators.

The only weird thing I saw which i have not seen discussed here is when I run IPCONFIG /ALL: It says IP Routing enabled: NO and WINS Proxy enabled: NO.

A:"The network did not assign a network address to the computer" error

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

If unsuccessful make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter. Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

Hi - I hope you can help me. I am very new to wireless networking so I feel a bit stupid.

First: This is a new problem. I was connecting fine up until last night. My Fiances computer still connects fine. Additionally, I can connect to this other network that is in range. The problem is only with the router in our apartment.

I have 'Limited or no connectivity". "This problem occurred becuase the network did not assign a network address to the computer". I tried repairing the connection but it "cannot renew IP address".

I just don't know what to do now. It says to contact the person who manages our network, but that would be me and I don't know anything.

Thanks in advance!!

Here's the situation. I have Verizon FiOs hooked up to my house through a wireless modem. One computer is connected while the rest are wireless. I have a cable tv input in the room I want to add another modem to so that the computer in the room does not have to use the wireless because of the very frequent "acquiring network address" every few minutes (all computers running XP). Is it possible to buy another Fios modem, hook it up to the cable in the new room, and have a hardwired connection in that room? If this is not possible, what might be the problem with the frequent "acquiring network address" deal? The wireless network has a WEP key. Thanks in advance for the help!

Any idea what it is? Or how I can find out? Thanks

Recently had a virus on my computer. Had to take it to the geek squad to get it fixed. Brought it home the other day and it would not connect to my wireless network (I am on the other laptop in my house that does still connect). It would connect before I got it "fixed". I brought it back to the store the next day and they tried a few things. I will connect to their wireless in the store.

I originally had Geek Squad come out earlier this year to set up my wireless router and the guy who helped me at the store said it might be because of a certain way he set my computer up to connect to the router which got erased when my computer had to be restored.

Now they want to charge me an extra $89 for them to come back out to the house and fix it.

Is there anything I can do to try to fix this myself without forking over even more money?

A few days ago i was trying to configure a wireless network, and without seeing the create wireless network setup wizard option in control panel, i used network setup wizard. the first option was that my computer connected directly to the internet and other computers were going through it. the other was that my computer was going through a residential gateway or another computer. i thought this meant router so i checked it. I think in reality both computers go directly to the router. after this it did some configuring which made me have to restart my computer i think this is what caused the ip conflict because it started after this. but i could be completely wrong as i was messing whit other things i shouldn't have been messing with (these i can't remember).

My brother just bought a Dell XPS M1210 (Windows XP Media). First thing he did was format the hard drive and re-install windows to clear off all the pre-installed junk. Everything went okay, until it came time to install the wireless adapter. The driver on the CD wouldn't even install, I had to download a newer one off of the Dell website. Once installed though I get my excellent signal strength but "limited or no connectivity." My listed "Network Adapters" in device manager are: "Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection" for wireless, "Broadcom 440x 10/100 Intergrated Controller" for wired, and "1394 Net Adapter." The router I'm trying to connect the laptop to is a Linksys WRT54GS.

Now, wired with the Broadcom adapter all is well, I connect perfect. The Intel Wireless Adapter though keeps saying I have limited connectivity. Says the problem occured because the network did not assign a network address to the computer. Can anyone help here? I'm a network idiot for the most part...thanks.

i have a situation here
i'm using static IP for Network #1 which is
but when i try joining another network let's say network #2 with a router address like i have to change network settings and use another static IP
can't i just ask windows to use static IP when i try to connect to network #1 and when i connect to network #2 without having to manually configure it every time ?
i know this seems a bit of nonsense question but i really have to use static IPs when connecting to those two particular networks
thanks in advance

A:Is it possible to assign a static IP for each network ?

Zaref what you really should do is figure out which base ip you want to use. For example then subnet the network so that computer 2, 3, 4, etc. Will share a different segment of the same network. Check out this youtube video (IP Addresses and Subnetting - YouTube) which will teach you more than you need to know about it. Then along with this read up on how subnets work in a business...I've read a couple that describe a company with accounting, shipping, corporate. Another option could be a proxy server, or a switch where all 3 computers are tied together though it.

I am adding tasks to a Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Task Schedule and attempting to use the "Start only if the following network connection is available" condition.  The problem is that the network connection I want to test is a VPN connection. 
Windows 7 tasks identify the selected network using the Network ID GUID value.  Each time the VPN is disconnected and re-connected, it receives a different Network ID.  As the task still has the old ID, it no longer recognizes that the network connection
has been re-established (and in fact disappears from the task scheduler task list even though the XML definition is still present in \Windows\System32\Tasks).  Having to re-create the task using the new network ID each time the VPN is re-connected kind
of defeats the purpose of having a scheduled task with a network dependency.
My question:  Is there a way to force Windows to re-assign the same network ID to a VPN connection each time it is re-connected so that the task does not need to be continually updated/re-created?

As far as I can tell everything is set to automatic and I shouldn't be having this problem unless it is also related to the quote I submitted below about DHCP error 1075. this may be a simple fix but as of now it does not seem to be. please help.
This quote also explains what I have been trying to dig into as well.
Quote from squidproject on techguy org:
I am having a major DHCP error on my girlfriend's laptop. I am primarily a Linux user so I'm kinda lost here as her machine is running XP. It's a Dell XPS M1210 which, conveniently, did not come with a recovery CD or even partition.
Anyway, a few weeks ago her wireless network device stopped working. It would look like it was connecting, but it would hang on "Acquiring network address." At first I thought maybe the device was shot, until I had the chance to test out the wired ethernet, which has the same problem.
After quite a bit of googling, I ran services.msc, and saw that DHCP is not running. When I try to start it from that menu, however, I get this message: &qu... Read more

I run some legacy software on an HP Compaq dc7700 Convertible Minitower with 2.5 GB of memory and  an x86 Intel chip running at 1862 MHz and OS= Win XP Pro SP3.
I recently had to re-install the OS (with drivers, all of which now show OK in device manager). As a stand-alone machine it seems to work fine. The problem is network/internet: it seems to be that the Network Adapter registers "obtaining IP address" indefinitely (and a TeamViewer VPN icon says "network cable is unplugged").
I replaced the cable with a new one. Confirming lights on cable attachment are lighted.
I logged on to the (Comcast) modem/router through a browser and the tab for "Connected Devices" shows the HP machine.
The machine itself won't ping. Device Manager shows both devices "functioning properly".
I also looked at SERVICES - Microsoft's default settings - and found many missing: COM+ Event System, DHCP Client, DNS Client, TCP/IP NetBIOS helper, etc.
I'm stumped.

A:In Win XP Pro sp3 re-install Intel Network Connector won't register IP adress

First...I would uninstall the Intel ethernet drivers via Device Manager...then reboot and reinstall same.
If that brings no joy, I would simply buy/employ a USB ethernet adapter.  Example..

According to my searches for assistance on this, I may well be the 1000th poster with the same problem...

I have already undertaken the fixes (solved and otherwise) provided by John Will and others on at least four threads of this nature and am still drawing a blank.

Of course the actual answer is to go and buy a new laptop but unfortunately, that isn't on the cards for a couple of months!

So, I have an old ACER 3613WLMi running XP and am trying to connect to a BT Home Hub with a full strength signal through a Realtek USB adapter. I have tried connecting through the Realtek connectivity settings and through WZC but both with the same results. Having run the supplied fixes, I've gotten myself a bit turned around and am now unsure what I've reset and what's supposed to be running what. I've also seen people providing reams of information to assist you but frankly, I don't really know what else to tell you!

First time i have used this site, if post is in the wrong area please move.

I have just bought a second hand PC Dell Optiplex SX270

Running window xp - pro

I came with a wireless USB adapter it can find the Bt home hub but will not connect but instead only gives me limited access so I cannot connect to the internet. It leaves me with this message "Network did not assign a network address to the computer."

The computer can connect fine to the internet if it plugged up to the modem but this is not a very practical solution as it requires 10m of cable running though my house.

I have tried to use windows sock to re-set the connection but to no success.

Any more ideas?

They told me to REPOST here in this thread.
I have a machine that generally sits on our network with DHCP assigned address (into our company network - mask 172.x.x.x).  This assignment is correct and sufficient for the majority of the time.

However, this machine is also the dedicated assigned machine for accessing our ip-based telephone system which runs on its own network (192.168.65.x).

Currently, in order to access the configuration of our phone system, I have to manually change the ip address of the NIC from DHCP enable, to fixed 192.168.65.y - this then allows me to access the phone system through the browser.

My question is if its possible to create a specific user, say "phonesys", (local to the machine and not domain based), that once logged in automatically sets/has the NIC ip address as the 192.168.65.y fixed address in order that I can just log in and access
the phone system.  (Conversely, all other users which are domain controlled will have the NIC settings as now which is DHCP).

Is this possible?
The initial answer I got was that I could use netsh commands to set the address with a login script for a certain user...
Now, I have tried looking and playing with this 'feature' but it is a little beyond my comprehension.

A:How to assign different/multiple IP address to NIC network card

Actually it is possible, you (and I) have just been looking in the wrong place - it's not under
Alternate Configuration, it's under Advanced.  I just gave it a shot on my laptop and it seems to have worked:
After assigning a static address, gateway and DNS servers in the primary spot click on the
Advanced button.  You can then add as many secondary IP addresses as you wish.  But the primary IP must be static or you can't add secondaries.  You can also add secondary gateways (if needed) and DNS servers for your secondary IPs (if
needed) on the DNS tab.
I apologize for taking so long to figure it out; I knew I'd done it before, the how just slipped my mind.

Ok 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.

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.

Lol any help would help . Thanks

I am running into trouble running a program on all my computers on my network. I am using a book inventory software called Booktrakker. The program uses an Access database file system and theoretically runs perfect on networks.

My database has now almost 32'000 records and runs on a Vista Computer (replacing an XP-operated predecessor). All other satellite computers should optimally connect to this main PC but I noticed that only computers that have Vista on them have difficulty running Booktrakker. For some reason, not all Vista computers can connect simultaneously, and sometimes I do have to shut down Booktrakker on the main PC to have a satellite computer even start Booktrakker.

I played around with permissions on the main computer to basically give permission to "everyone" to access, read and modify the working Booktrakker folder without having any success.
Did I miss something in the networking/Vista? or it is just the program? Or it is just me?


A:Program on Vista OS accessed from Network's XP-OS computers but not from Vista comput

Have you checked with the folks that make the "Booktrakker" software about this problem? That would be the logical first step.

For some reason my Router stopped assigning my LAN Adapter a valid IP address. No windows updates were made, the router did not reset, I didn't change the driver, it was entirely spontaneous.

Things I've tried with no success:Power cycled the PC and the Modem/Router
/release & /renew the IP address trough the cmd prompt
"netsh winsock reset" from the cmd prompt (and restarted machine)
Switched ethernet ports on both the router AND my PC (I have two ethernet network adapters)
putting my entire router in the microwave for 15 minutes with a can of gasoline
repeated all the above steps per the direction of a "technical expert" at Verizon FiOS who clearly drinks paint for breakfast
Replaced the ethernet cable
Updated the driver of the network adapter
Manually entered a valid IPv4 address through the TCP/IPv4 Properties window
Attached are screen shots of the diagnostic results from Windows 7 that fail, as well as the ipconfig /all results with the invalid IP address the router keeps assigning.

I'm running Windows 7 x64 with a Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Ethernet Adapter. Other devices on the network connect without incident, including the laptop I'm submitting this from and my Xbox 360.

Hi! I have had to reboot my computer recently due to possible infection and whilst before my wireless connection was absoluley fine now I am having problems. I have connected the adaptor as instructed by Negear and it can find the network, but will not allow me to aquire a network address. I have two laptops (and i-phones) on the network and all these appear to work OK so I assume that the router and modem are working fine and the problem lies with the settings on my computer. When I go onto properties of the connection I find the IP/TP protocol and this is set up to get IP address automatically. When I input a manual IP address it says that it is connected but I cannot get onto the internet. I am totally confused. I managed to get it set up before but don't know where to go next. Any suggestions would be extremley appreiated.

Good morning,

I have recently bought a Asus Eee PC with Windows 7 starter.

It will connect ok to public Wifi (i.e. at the Qantas lounge) but will not connect to my home Wifi network - Netcomm N150 Router. The two other computer at home (running full versions of Windows 7) work fine over this network.

When I look at the Station list in the Router's interface the MAC address for the new laptop appears but it has no IP address.

i.e. (some details blanked)

94:xxxxx SSID-64PWR_ACTIVE40M00:17:29

Have tried the obvious things like power cycling.

Any guidance on how I can move forward would be great

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.
I am recording DNS Client Errors (ID 1014) on all of the PCs during the intervals when their NICs are identifying which network to join.

-On the PCs that are catching the domain network I am only getting a single error about the root domain, eg the domain is ad.domain.com and I am only getting errors about how the configured DNS servers cannot resolve domain.com (nothing with fully qualified

I got a new netbook (Aspire One)
I am trying to connect wirelessly. My other laptop works fine right now, sitting close to modem.

I think it says under Wireless Network Connection "limited or no connectivity"

?? because I need to type in the correct password or something... I read that somewhere.

Do I need some other password (WEP) from my other computer or something (that I surely have lost)

or is the password WEP I made up today to get me this far.
It says I have the signal strength.

I made up some password to get me this far --

It is also talking about my network doesn't have my IP address, but I click repair, and it tries to put it in there but can't and suggests I contact my network.

I don't want to connect my computers now, just get connected to the internet.

I am completely lost with computers, don't speak the language.

I clicked on repair the connection and it said "I need to renew my IP address, For Assistance, contact the person who manages your network".... whatever that means???

I don't even know what "the network" is (its true).

Thank you, if you can help, please remember I can't understand computer stuff like you at all. need step by step. Thanks alot!

A:Can't connect- "the network did not assign a netowrk address to this computer"

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.
