Q: Solved: "This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address"

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.

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.)

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.

Thank you in advance for any help and please let me know if you need some additional information.

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!!

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.

My Windows XP laptop was connected to the internet via erthernet cable to a Linksky modem (I've been using my grandparent's internet). Up until a week ago, that's worked fine. But suddenly it's stopped working, and whenever I try to connect I get this:

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!

Hi,

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!

Hi
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?

Hi,

I have a problem. A certain wireless network PCCard decided to suddenly stop working. It used to work fine, but now when I try to connect it says "acquiring network address" for a long time, then it says I have limited or no connectivity (even though the signal strength is good). I hadn't made any changes to the system before this happened, and replacing it with another older card I have works fine. Anyone knows what the problem might be? Has the card simply broken, or could it be a deeper problem? Thanks!

I put in the wireless software, typed in the correct ID and password, and it says I'm connected, but I'm not, and the network icon on the taskbar is stuck on "acquiring network address".

The wired computer is working fine, so there's definitely no problem there.

I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the adapter, but that didn't do anything.

Tried restarted the computer. That didn't do anything, either.

What's the problem?

I'm not sure if this will help any, but just so you know, I recently reinstalled Windows on this computer. Not sure if that's relevant or not.

Hi foristas and tech support,

I am having a problem that I see others have had after a PC system recovery on an XP computer. My HP desktop was running crazy slow, so I ran the PC Recovery Tool to do a clean re-installation of Windows XP. I updated from SP1 to SP2 and then to SP3 following the instructions on the HP and Microsoft sites. I also reinstalled the wireless adapter (before updating to SP3 I believe) and the computer connects to my home network fine. Now I am trying to connect to my work WIFI network, but even though I enter the network key, it won't stop "acquiring network address".

Hi Guys,

I use a desktop which is normally wired to the Netgear wireless router which has WPA-PSK encryption. I often also use my work laptop over wireless connection. My desktop has wireless network (ASUS 802.11b/g Wireless LAN) card and for last few days I have been trying to use my desktop over wireless network. When I enable the wireless network, the PC can see nearby wireless networks including mine. However, when I try to connect to it, the PC keeps "Acquiring Network Address" forever. If I disable the security on the router, the desktop connects to the wireless network without any problem. Please note that I am not mistyping the network key here, which is often the cause of such issue. I have extensively searched the internet for a solution and I found a post on this forum which matches closely with my problem. http://forums.techguy.org/networking/626938-solved-cannot-connect-wireless-network.html This however was resolved by using WEP encryption but I would like to find out how I can make it work with WPA-PSK. I have not tried the WEP encryption as I am not sure how I use it. Can someone please help me here?

I know this problem has been discussed many times on various forums, but none of the solutions worked for me. I was hoping some of the knowledgeable people here might help me.

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 0.0.0.0 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."

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Acer Extensa 4420 bought in October.

Diagnosis:
1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, reboot the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.

you can try running ipconfig /renew which will do the same thing but because its run in dos it tends to work better. Or if you are connected to a router or switch you can try to set a static IP thus the computer wont need to acquire a network address

Hi,

I have been having this problem with my desktop computer for some time, and have tried so many things with no real solution.

Basically, the internet works SOMETIMES, and then suddenly, for seemingly no reason, it will lose connection, fail to acquire the network address, and then end up saying "Limited or No Connectivity".

Sometimes when I start the computer up, this will happen from the beginning. Sometimes when I do a system restore to a few days previously it will sort the problem, but then the problem returns after a period of time.
(My desktop computer worked fine for some time, and it has only been in the past few weeks that it has had this problem.)
So, problem:
Fails to acquire network address on one computer (in two seperate XP partitions), says "Limited or No Connectivity".
Connection works fine on laptop.
Problems also on Xbox Live (disconnecting). I am guessing same problem as desktop, but of course with less options to experiment and analyse.

Here is my network's set-up:

BT HomeHub 2.0
Desktop Computer (running two different XP's in seperate partitions, BOTH of which have the same problem)
XP-1 (SP2): Many programs installed, incl. AVG 8.0, Sygate Firewall, and Firefox.
XP-2 (SP2): Very few programs installed, fresh OS. Still problematic.

Xbox 360: Disconnects from Live sporadically, and sometimes refuses to reconnect.
Laptop (XP SP2): This is the only device that has no problem connecting to the router or the internet... Read more

I just set up a wireless network for my apartment and my two roomates are able to wirelessly connect to it but I am not. I am wired into the router now and when I try to wirelessly connect (without being plugged into the router of course) It gets stuck at "Acquiring Network Address". I am using windows XP on a dell inspiron laptop. I am pretty sure it is not my adapter as I tried a loopback test and it worked. The router is a basic Linksys Wireless G Router. I'm not sure what information to include so please tell me or point me to a similar thread to read.

Make sure TCP/IP is selected.

Then try and connect again. If no love, go to START / Run / {Type} cmd {enter} / and in the command line prompt type

Hi.

I have Vista installed on my desktop PC and I recently decided to use a XP Pro installtion CD to dual boot XP & Vista. However, when I run XP whenever I try to connect to the router I get "Acquiring Network Address" which never goes away so I cannot get internet access. The weird thing is the Vista Installtion on the desktop connects fine.

Here's what my IPCONFIG log says:

Description: Ralink 802.11n Wireless LAN Card
Physical Address: 00-0E-2E-E5-E2-41
DHCP Enabled: Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled: Yes
IP Address: 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask: 0.0.0.0
Default Gateway:
DHCP Server: 255.255.255.255
Any ideas on how to fix this?

Ok, so I've read about this problem in numerous posts before, but it seems as though everyone is afflicted by a slightly different version, and none of the solutions I've read have led anywhere.

So.. the problem is regarding my desktop PC, which is one of two in the house along with a few laptops. So far as I know all the other computers can connect to the network just fine (and for a long time the desktop was o.k. too) -- and I do know that my laptop is working on the wireless, hence the post. But this desktop just hangs on "Acquiring Network Address" for a while before defaulting to a 169.blah IP which doesn't work, although it does say "Connected".

I've tried all the usual things in terms of disabling/enabling, windows' "repair", and I've also tried configuring the TCP/IP settings manually with a number of different combinations (I tried getting and using the details for DNS and default gateway by running ipconfig on this laptop -- but they didn't work). Also tried setting the desktop a static IP address through the router configuration to no avail. Since it seems to be the way business is done here, these are the current 'ipconfig /all' readouts for the lappy and desktop.

Laptop:
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-19-B9-51-0B-84

Today, I purchased a D-Link Wireless-G Router to use in my apartment. My laptop connects to the network fine, but my roommate's does not. If the network is left unprotected, he can connect fine using a Belkin Wireless-G USB adapter and the Belkin software. However, if I add a WEP key, or a WPA-PSK, he can no longer connect. I can still connect to any configuration.

Specifically, when he tries to connect to the encrypted network, the computer connects to the router, but not to the internet - stating "acquiring network address." It then notifies us that the network has little or no connectivity.

Any ideas on how I might fix this? I tried to update the driver and the software to no avail.

Thanks in advance,

If you have let the software create the key, then I would recommend creating the pass phrase yourself so that you can duplicate on troubled machine. Auto generated pass phrases are not always compatible between different manufacturers.

Hello,

I have a Windows XP SP3 Thinkpad laptop. Today, I was trying to setup a new router and everything went fine. Five other computers connected and are working, except for this machine. It says "Acquiring Network Address" and then after that, it says Limited or No Connectivity. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hello,
First let me say that I'm horrible with computers. I'm just very CPU ignorant.

That being said here's my problem:

My Dell inspiron mini will show my network and show that it has excellent signal strength. But then it also says limited or no connectivity.
It also gives me this:

network did not assign a network address to the computer

Don't know what to do. I've already tried this:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock
reset catalog
Reboot machine

None of that worked. What is my next step to fixing my problem?

Hi folks.  This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you.  Not sure if that matters.  

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled.  When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before.  After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public".  I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated".  What does this mean and how can I fix this?  How did this happen?  Thanks.

A:Network shows as "Unauthenticated"....Changed my network profile to "Public"

How many DCs are there in the domain?
I suggest that you remove the Windows 7 computer from the AD, and exit the Windows 7 computer from domain. Then, re-join the computer to the domain. How does it work now?
If the issue persists, please temporary disable the firewall on both computers. Also, please check if Network Location Awareness service is enabled on the server and Windows 7 computers.Arthur Xie - MSFT

Allright, I'll try to lay this out as intelligibly as possible. I've got a 2 year old desktop and a brand new laptop, both of which are using the retail version of Windows 7 Home Premium with all available updates installed. The laptop has internal wireless.  The desktop connects thru a USB wireless adapter.  They connect to my home network, "meepmeep". When I attempt to set up a homegroup on either computer, the other computer doesn't recognize that there is a homegroup on the network.  Additionally, the drives I have set as shared on the desktop are not visible under network places.  Both are connected to "meepmeep" as a home network with full connectivity, network discovery is on, sharing is enabled, and drives on the desktop are set as shared.  Both run Windows Firewall (but no other firewalls).  The router is a Belkin Wireless G router.  I have already run the Win7 troubleshooters with no helpful resolution. I have checked and doublechecked that network discovery is on, sharing is enabled, and that the workgroup is set up correctly.  What steps should I try now? Thanks in advance. UPDATE: Apparently, according to my network adapter status, I have no network access under IPv6 connectivity.  I have internet access under IPv4 connectivity. I have also tried to enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on IPv4 with no change either.  The problem persists whether or not windows firewall is on.  I do not use any other firewall programs.

A:Cannot "see" other computers on home network as network places, and one computer can't "see" the homegroup set up by the other

 
Hi,
 
Here are some suggestions you can try:
 
1. Temporarily turn off firewall on each machine.
 
2. Modify relevant settings on Windows 7 machine.
 
a. Click Start and open Control Panel.
b. Open "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Advanced sharing settings".
c. Expand the current network profile (such as "Home or Work"), and then select the following options:
 
"Turn on Network Discovery",
"Turn on file and printer sharing",
"Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in the Public folders",
"Turn off password protected sharing"
 
3. Enable IPv6 connectivity
 
a. Click "Start", input "NCPA.CPL" (without quotation marks) to Start Search bar and press "Enter".
b. Right-click the network connection and click "Properties".
c. Select the "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)" options and click OK.
 
4. Access the target computer via UNC name. Write down the computer name for the laptop. Click Start button in Windows 7 and type \\laptop computer name, and then press enter. Can you access the laptop machine now?
 
Thanks,
Novak

G'day all,

I am hoping someone may be able to tell me why my local folders appear under "The Internet" on one of our work computers rather than under "Local Network". We have four machines, 3 running XP Home and one running XP Pro. The front machine has XP Home on it and I cannot open any of the shared folders for this machine on any of the other three machines even though they all have the same workgroup name.

They are all connected via CAT5 cable and we have a Netcomm NB5 ADSL2 modem/router, a Netcomm V300 Telephone Adapter(VOIP)/modem and an 8 port switch in the boss's office. And the front computer's folder/s and drives that I have chosen to be shared are listed under "The Internet". Does anyone know why this is and how I would go about correcting it?

Thankyou for your help and time,

Aaron

Good afternoon. I had originally posted this issue on the Windows XP Support forum but they redirected me to the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum. I have a Dell Latitude laptop running XP Professional that was just given to me by a friend because nobody could get it to work for him. When I first tried to use it, I could not get online with any browser, even though I had a network connection. I ran an Avast scan and found that the netbt.sys file was infected with the Alureon-AMS trojan. I quarantined the file. I confirmed that the file was no longer available with a Fabar Services Scan. That scan also detected that there were registry settings missing. I know that I need an uncorrupted copy of netbt at the very least but I do not have an XP recovery disc. I am not sure where to get this missing file or where to put it when I do find it somewhere and I will not attempt any registry changes without help. Right now the computer is just stuck in the "acquiring network address" loop.

I ran a dds scan ... here are the logs:

Tried practically everything proposed on older threads but nothing worked. I may be wrong, but I believe the problem was present before the reinstall so the local techie had to set up a static IP to connect to the router. How do I go about doing this myself?

I recently bought my son a D-Link DWA-25 USB Wireless adapter for his desktop but I can't seem to get it to work. Not matter what I do (I have tried every bit of advice this wonderful forum has to offer) and so for all I get is "Acquiring Network Address." When I run ipconfig, it returns and ip address of 0.0.0.0 and a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0. Customer service for D-Link and Qwest were useless (spent most of the time blaming each other), so any help you guys and gals can lend me would be stupendous.
 

A:Stuck on "Acquiring Network Address" for Wireless Adapter on Windows XP

(from a JohnWill post)

IP addresses of 0.0.0.0 are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, reboot the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.

I am trying to map network drive using Windows 8.1 64-bit.  The drive is a USB disk plugged right into my router.  The drive location is //192.168.0.1.  If I do the following at a command prompt, it is successful and I can read/write
to the USB drive using file explorer at //192.168.0.1:
net use \\192.168.0.1 /USER:admin (and typing in the password when prompted)

However, if I try to use the Map Network Drive tool (while selecting the "different credentials" option) something weird happens.  The Windows Security box pops up to enter my credentials but then immediately a second box opens up
titled just "Windows".  The box says:
The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error has occurred: Attempt to access invalid address.

Also, if I use Remote Desktop Connection to try and connect with my computer at work I get a very similar situation.  A Windows Security box pops up to enter my credentials followed immediately with a box with the message "Remote Desktop
Connection has stopped working".  I know it should work because I created a .rdp text file with my username and encrypted password in it and then I can connect!

Hi guys!
i have purchase two wireless routers (by mistake), one Belkin G Wireless Router F5D7234-4 and one Netgear Rangemax N150 WPN824N.

it is amaizing to see that the belking one is about 1/3 the size of the netgear and it performs just AWESOME, so simply and "troublefree".

In the other hand i have this netgear, its cute, but it is BIG, SLOW at start up and once i disconnect one of the devices using its internet its impossible to get connected again.

Yesterday, I started to recieve messages that I was infected with the "Cloud Protection" virus. From research, I understand it affects the computer with false warnings and also affects internet connection. I used another computer to run Malwarebytes and Combofix. Combofix cleaned the computer of any virus and malwarebytes cleaned up after it. Since then, I have not any leftovers from the virus. It seems to be gone.
Now, my problem is I still have no internet and the more I do research it seems I am missing registry files.

Netbios and netbt.sys files are two of the files I am sure were missing.

Is there a way to approach this so I can not only do a system recon, but also get it up and running again without reinstalling windows.

I know that the network itself is working fine because I have this computer hooked up the same way. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening?

for doing this will cause windows to reinstall the driver to which (hopefully ) correct this issue
