Q: Solved: Local Area Connection: doesn't work, Wireless: does work

My problem is that I cannot access the internet through my LAC. I enable the connection and it will connect and send packets, but will not receive any packets. I have no problems enabling my wireless connection and connecting to the internet. The wireless does like to disconnect and reconnect about 3 or 4 times an hour which is another problem I have. I believe this LAC problem started around the same time I was trying to get shared music between my computers on iTunes. I was trying to allow for connection on port 3689, but everything I did was unsuccessful. Any suggestions for any of these problems I'm having?

Hello,
Please help! I have been trying to "fix" this issue on my laptop for the past month, on and off. I have been using other sources to access the internet reading up on resolutions on this issue and all kinds of forums. I am knowledgeable, but not able to understand some of the fixes and terms that I have come across. I feel like I've tried everything and still I cannot access the internet on my PC wired or wireless.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L505-GS5038. I tried to release & renew my ipconig. Please see below for ipconfig.
Please help!!!

I am pretty sure, from the searches on Google, that this is an infamous and difficult or easy problem in many cases to solve. In my case, it is difficult and I appeal help without being directed to Google!

The problem lies with wired networking. I am using my sister's HP touchscreen which conveniently has a wireless card built in it. The ipconfig /all will be displayed below this post. I have a Comcast Modem connected to a WRT54GX Linksys router. The router plugs into the wall, which goes to I believe another router or access point, in my parent's closet, (it has numerous amounts of Ethernet wires that I believe connects to every single wired plug in the house) further evidence is if I unplug the access point/router in my parent's closet, the LED for the wired port of the router connected to the modem ceases. I can confirm that directly connecting the computer to the router (not connecting to the wall) gives me internet access.

Can anyone give me clues or instructions to work with this? All computers cannot connect to the internet via wired connection. This problem also started when wired connected internet started to slow down drastically(the LED was blinking dimly and turns off every few seconds for wired connection), and I reset the router and modem. I also unplugged the access point/router in the closet for one night because I felt it was overheating and the LED wired connection is strong with no blinks but no internet access.

Yes, another one of these. I have read through many of these threads, doing as suggested, but without resolution.

All computers can connect to an "Unnamed Network" showing as public. Computers can access others on the network and the Windows 7 computers, if manually connected, can see the others in the Homegroup. But none can access the internet.

Connecting a Windows 7 laptop directly to the modem can get to the internet.

The laptop can see and connect to both the (non-broadcasting) SSID and guest network and can see neighbor's wifi. But still can't connect to the internet.

Computers are set to automatically obtain IP and DNS. TCP/IP stack repair commands were run successfully on the Windows 7 machines. DNS Client, Network Location Awareness and RPC are all running.

None of the machines can reach or ping the router at 192.168.1.1.

This started with two computers on Tuesday evening. Then two more on Wednesday afternoon. Then the rest on Wednesday evening.

Router, modem, switches, computers have all been hard reset several times.

The following computer was built from scratch with Windows 7 and has only ever had AVG antivirus.

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-Fi. When 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.

Here's my ipconfig /all results from my PC that won't connect:

A:Solved: Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration - Windows 7

you are doing actually doing two different things as far as i can make - is this correct

Move Powerline from an extension lead and it works - This is because some powerline adapters will not work on an extension lead - so thats (1) and

(2) moving the router is reducing the wireless signal

so you need to find a way to keep the router where it is and not use an extension lead- maybe a longer ethernet cable

from the wireless pcs can we see an xirrus screen shot - when its working OK and again when it is not - just in case its interference

one day about 2 weeks ago, my net stopped working just randomly. I get the error 'Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP' when i try to use the router, and some 'unidentified network' shows up, i cannot connect to it.

I reset everything and unplugged everything but couldnt get it to work until i unplugged from the router and plugged my computer directly to the modem. A good fix to get the net going in a pinch but it has become a real problem with me, my husband and my kids all using one computer when we're used to having our own. You cant even imagine the drama.

I've tried everything i can to fix it, usually google gets me through anything i cant fix on my own and i did come across a few other people having my problem, they all seemed to fix it by disable a bonjour process. I had the same service running but their trick to disable it didnt fix my problem, it is still exactly the same.

Another suggestion was to get rid of windows 7 driver for the network card and use the vendors own driver, tried that, made no diff either. also tried rolling back to several different times but for some reason the process failed.

i dont know what caused it, i cant remember if anything new was updated that day.. i dont think so, but im not certain, i have even gotten rid of all internet security and tried disabling windows firewall too.

I dont know what else to do but we cant go on with one working computer for much longer!!

Hi. I formatted both my laptop and desktop computer. When i did with my laptop, everything was great. Wireless still worked. Of course i have my linksys router connected to get the wireless.
I then formatted my desktop. Its a dell. When i did this, everything seemed great. However, i noticed that if i remove my wireless router and just connect my cable modem wired, it works. However, when i connect my wireless router, then my wireless internet works but my WIRED connection does not work. It has this message that says can't connect.
Can someone help me here? I don't think this has ever happened before. I mean, there were many times where my desktop got formatted and my wired internet worked and i could not get my wireless connection to work. But never had i had my wireless work and my wired connection not work. Can someone help me on this? The one thing i did this time was after i installed the drivers with my windows cd, i then deleted the old windows file that was about 25 gb. Could that be a reason?

Hello Dynamite, My name is Dusty, and hopefully I am able to help you out some.

Do you have windows updated? Also, Windows update can check for drivers automatically.

Do you have a LAN driver and wireless adapter driver installed? If windows update doesn't find them, look them up on your motherboard's manufacturer's website and your adapter's manfacturer's website, respectively.

Hello guys.
I'm here seeking help due to a problem I've been facing for a long time.
First of all this all started when I was making some researching about how to change mac address. I changed due to the control I had with router's firewall. I first installed a programm that I thought was great and could do that with no problems. I thought wrong, it kinda messed up my wireless connection and from that moment I've started using LAN, once wireless wasn't available anymore (When I go to device manager and to "network adapets" the "802.11 n/g/b Wireless LAN USB Adapter" has a yellow icon with a "!" and when I double click on it the device status says "This device cannot start.

I wonder if that has any kind of solution, but if it doesn't that's not the main reason why I'm making this thread. The main reason is basically due to a problem that happened to me yesterday. I installed driver booster and noticed that I had a lot of drivers out dated (incluiding some network adapters), so I decided to update them. When all the updates finished, I was no longer able to connect to internet. The yellow icon with a "!" appeared and the first thing I've tried to do to solve it was to run device manager and see if I could roll back the drivers. Some of them I could, some not.

I get the error "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration in Windows 7.This is my desktop computer and is a direct connect to my broadband modem. All of my wireless connections are working. I have had Comcast out and there is no problem with the modem. This started on Jan 3, 16. My laptop connected to the modem wirelessly on Dec 25, 15 and works fine (except that it has that awful Windows 10 but that's another story). My wireless printer was installed in Feb and is working fine but does show an error - A router/access point channel conflict has been detected. The Comcast tech could not find that problem since the printer is working.
I have read similar problems and suggestions and tried many of the including ipconfig/renew but it failed. I tried 'netsh int ip reset reset.log' and it failed. I also tried to manually put in the ip addresses with no luck. Any suggestions to solve this problem will be greatly appreciated.
By the way, the problem started right after I installed WebRoot on my laptop. I uninstalled it but that didn't help. I know that it is probably just a coincident but wanted to mention it.

Sounds like webroot did some optimisations, do you have a restore point prior to its installation if so use it.

Is there anyone who would be willing to assist me with this repetitive issue instead of paying emachine's warranty service 150 bucks to answer this question over the phone ?


If you can post the ipconfig/all from this machine it should help me to diagnose the problem.

Recently, I can't connect to the internet. when I tried to troubleshoot the problem, it gave me the following line :
"Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration"
I have two PCs and when I connect the mothem/router to the second PC, everything is okay and internet is on (So I am sure the problem is not from the modem/router and it is from windows)

I searched many forums and websites and tried many solutions but none of them helped me.

these are the solutions that I tried :

-
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

-
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset reset.log

- repairing windows

- uninstalling any security softwares like firewall and antivirus

- disabling/enabling or uninstalling/installing the network hardware from device manager

- using another network card and another network cable

- uninstall the Bonjour sevice

here is the two screenshots of using ipconfig /all, ipconfig /release & ipconfig /renew commands :

windows 7 ultimate x86
Gigabit Ethernet
D-Link DFE-520TX Ethernet Adaptor
D-Link Mothem/Router DSL-2640T

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

If you havn't done so yet you should reset the router and go through the routers set up page making sure that all settings are correct. As it stands you aren't getting a thing from the router. Try a different eithernet cable also please.

Routers can behave like this and do so on a regular basis, they can give out an IP to one machine and not the next for unknown reasons, happens all the time.

This also needs to be done just to eliminate the possibility that it's not a simple router problem which is the most likely cause.

Hi all,

I came here off word of mouth and I am going to donate immediately after I get some help!

I'm having a lot of trouble. One of my computers is getting the "local area connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration" error from troubleshooting my network. My network is an "Unidentified Network" with NO NETWORK or INTERNET ACCESS. This happened ever since I installed a new modem. The modem is WORKING with all other computers. My NIC card for the computer that is not connecting, is also working since I tested it on another modem. I had to call the ISP to activate the new modem. I spoke with them and they said nothing is blocked on their end.

So I've narrowed it down to my computer since there is no hardware issue. I connect by LAN, FYI. I've tried new cables, etc. My computer has no "BONJOUR" in it nor does it have any firewalls set up, just Windows Security Essentials.

I noticed in my IPCONFIG /ALL that no IP shows up for my default gateway (should be 192.168.0.1). DHCP is enabled. I tried static IP as well to no avail.

I've attached a screenshot of my IPCONFIG /ALL. I've tried literally everything that I could think of. I've called Time Warner and I've checked every forum. This forum had the smartest people on it, so I wanted to give a shot posting here.

I would be so grateful if anyone could help me. Thank you so much.

Guys, I really need your help.

I got a new laptop a couple days ago. It was for work so I brought it to the office. We have an open network in the office, you just need to plug into it with a regular cable. We've had it for years and it always worked. Not this time.

When I'd first plugged it, it came online, but the connection had been lost in a couple minutes. When nothing obvious worked, I tried to diagnose and got the infamous "Local Area Connection doesn't have valid IP configuration" error. I've been googling it ever since, trying to do everything possible to fix this.

The network adapter is Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

I've tried using different cable, restarting the router, all the ipconfig stuff, resetting winstock etc. I've formatted the hard drive and installed Win 7 from scratch. I've checked the BIOS - it only has one LAN-related setting and it's enabled. I've been to Realtek website and downloaded their latest drivers. The latest one is from Jan

Finally I've seen a few thread suggesting that this whole issue is router-related. So I brought the laptop home to try it there without any router in the way. It was pretty much the same - got connection, working for half a minute, gone. Diagnosing got me the same error. I've tried disabling ipV6 and playing with adapter configuration, but it didn't change much.

Nothing. Sometimes diagnosing makes the laptop recognise the network, but it's only for a short time.

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

How are you setting up your laptop to share internet with the desktop? Ad-hoc? If so it would only be a temporary setup and more than likely your desktop will drop off when you restart laptop/desktop.

From the ipconfig, you're desktop's ipv4 is 169.254.71.63(Preferred). No good!
Desktop also does not see gateway.

Try this on your desktop ipv4 setting (set up manual IP not dhcp):

Address===> 192.168.0.10
Mask====> 255.255.255.0
Gateway=====> 192.168.0.254
DNS =====> 87.244.194.90
217.119.113.245

(not sure why the gateway has that ip but if your laptop works should be good)

What I know for sure is that my laptop doesn't want to get the IPv4 Default Gateway and DNS server and that is the problem. Hope someone can help me out

Just to make sure I get it right: you are saying that you can connect to the router wireless, but if you plug an Ethernet cable to the back of the router and your computer - it doesn't work?

Try this simple idea first and see if it works for ya:

click start; programs, accessories, then right click on command prompt and select run as administrator. Then type ipconfig /release. Once the adapter releases; then type ipconfig /renew. IF that does nothing for ya; I would then do a power cycle of your network equipment which will reset them. Unplug the power cord to both the modem and router(if you have a separate router); then wait about a minute or so then plug the modem back in first and let that boot; then plug the router back in and let that boot. Try one or both of these and see if they help ya. If not post back and we can go from there.

A:Router Help! Local Area Connection Doesn't Have a Valid IP Configuration.

The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.

Note that the wireless encryption and channel selection will have to be done after the basic wired connection is established, the first step is to get wired connections working.

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

NOTE: For the items below in red surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous command output!

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

When you are connected via ethernet cable and you get a 169.254.xxx.xxx IP address, you have no connection to the network. Basically Windows will attempt to get an IP address from the network (the router assigns the IP addresses) and if it doesn't get one, it will make one up. Those made up addresses will always be 169.254.xxx.xxx.

There are some possible causes: the ethernet cable is broken (easy to check, just swap it out), the MAC address on your NIC has been blocked (this is something you'd have to ask your school's IT department about), your NIC card is failing (the card could be going out, one of the wires on the connector could be bent/mangled), Windows somehow got the NIC drivers screwed up (uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling the drivers may help).

Anyways, my IP address is starting with 169 and im not sure if it's suppose to start with that.

A:Local area connection doesn't have a valid ip config error craziness

If you plug into a wall socket, that means you are not in control of the network you are connecting to. The 169 number you see is a private IP address your machine gives itself when it cannot obtain no other IPs.

What can you tell us about the network connection from the wall socket? Have you tried another machine? Is there a way you can test the building network from next door apartment (ie asking people if they have any issues).

I'm using a Linksys WRK54G, and I have 2 computers sharing a DSL connection. The laptop is connected wirelessly while my old desktop is hard-wired to the router. I've been using this setup for almost a year and have never had any problems...until 2 days ago. The LAN connection on the desktop "turns on and off" constantly or stays "off." I don't mean it's disabling and enabling itself, I just keep getting the big red X in the system tray, either solid or intermittently.

I have tried all I know to do, from rebooting to power-cycling the router and modem (independently and simultaneously) and even trying to hook the cable into the other 3 hard wire jacks in the router. Nothing seems to work. Last night this worked for, oh, and hour, and it did it again. Any suggestions?

Hey guys, I recently reformatted my Dell Inspiron E1505 and I can't seem to get on the internet when I plug in the ethernet cable. I can connect fine through the wireless connection though. Thanks!

Kinda baffled on this one all...

Pics attached:
Network icons in system tray show no connection, yet local and internet connections work fine and are perfectly accessable....
This happens both hardwired, and wireless... with three different brands of wireless adapters.
Rosewill, netgear and TP-link....
Tried with several drivers different drivers, included MS ones.
Also tried with and without the adapters manufacturer wireless software....same result of incorrenct MS icon... granted the manufacturer icon would report correctly...figures

Seen this before on a friends win 7 machine a few months back and didnt think anything of it...

My rig has a fresh win 7 x64 install, this network icon issue occurred both before, and also after windows updates, so that's pretty much ruled out too...and not a single piece of software or system mod was done before I established connectivity and seen the erroneous icons.... bashing head right about now....

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

My wireless adapter connects fine when my pc boots except if I try to download a large file or run a full screen program that uses connection, the adapter stops working and won't detect any networks, if I try to configure it when it doesn't work...my com will turn itself off and turn back on. I downloaded a newer driver, resetted my router, but the problem is still there.

Hey guys,

Yesterday I formatted and reinstalled windows Vista on my new Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop. I've gone through the whole driver CD, installed everything there, but wireless still doesn't work! It doesn't find any networks. I realize that the drivers CD just has the default 1720 drivers, so some things might be different (for example, the default video card is 8400, but mine has an 8600, and the driver for that isn't on the CD). Perhaps I require a different wireless driver?

If that is the case, how do I know which one I have and where to get the propoer driver for it?

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.

I have a D-Link DWL-520 V. E1 wireless card and want to install it in a computer running Windows XP. D-Link does not give technical support for this card but does have the driver for download on their website.
I downloaded the driver for WinXP and clicked the setup icon to install and it installed the Utility program but never produced the screen to install drivers like the manual says it should. Is anyone familiar with this and know why I can't install the driver? The utility does me no good if the driver is not installed.
