limited network connectivity - DHCP and DNS servers not responding

Q: limited network connectivity - DHCP and DNS servers not responding

I have two laptops, L1 and L2. Recently, L2 stopped connecting to the internet via my Linksys wireless router. However, L1 can still connect just fine via the same router. L1 runs winXP SP3, L2 runs win7 Home Premium x64 SP1. Usually when L1 or L2 stops connecting, I turn off the wireless cards on both computers, power-cycle the modem and router, turn on the wireless cards, and then the laptops both connect. However, this workaround isn?t working for L2 anymore.

The event viewer shows errors such as the following:

The IP address lease 192.168.1.100 for the Network Card with network address 0x70F1A12F2601 has been denied by the DHCP server 0.0.0.0 (The DHCP Server sent a DHCPNACK message). Event ID 1002.


and

Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 0xA4BADBB01388. The following error occurred: 0x79. Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server. Event ID 1003.


(I tried using both the wireless and ethernet cards, but both experienced the same lack of connectivity, with the same error messages.)

I have found seemingly relevant threads here and here, but the solutions proffered have not worked.

The network diagnostic tool says:

Root Cause: Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding. Root Cause Guid: {902390d9-0cd9-4f91-9e6c-8fa5e6dad657}

AAAH... SOLUTION:
After doing a system restore, I regained connectivity. The point I restored to did not affect any installed programs or drivers, so I don?t know exactly what changed to cause the problem. I sure hope anyone else with this error has as easy of a fix. If not, I hope some of the solutions in the links above work for you.

Preferred Solution: limited network connectivity - DHCP and DNS servers not responding

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: limited network connectivity - DHCP and DNS servers not responding

I should clarify that the problem was with L2, running win7. L1, running xp, had connectivity the whole time. Before doing a system restore, I also tried resetting the router (pushing reset button in back for 30 seconds), but that didn't solve the problem.

Last night my wife's laptop couldn't connect to the internet. Error message was DNS servers not responding. I unplug power cables and Ethernet cables from cable modem and router (WRT54GL DD-WRT). That didn't seem to work. Today, she was able to get on certain text heavy websites. The WiFi icon said that she had internet access, but still very limited access and slow. I try DNS Release from router's setup page and DNS Renew. I also tried to release and renew through command prompt, but nothing has worked. I can get full access if I bypass the router and connect to my Desktop. Is my router dieing?

Here is my Desktop's ipconfig /all when connected to the router:

A:Network Connectivity Problems (DNS Servers not responding)

From the ipconfig the router seems to be working for this machine anyway.

Have you tried performing a full reset using the reset button on the router?
Hard Reset (aka 30/30/30 reset):

The following procedure will clear out the NVRAM and set dd-wrt back to default values:
## With the unit powered on, press and hold the reset button on back of unit for 30 seconds
## Without releasing the reset button, unplug the unit and hold reset for another 30 seconds
## Plug the unit back in STILL holding the reset button a final 30 seconds (please note that this step can put Asus devices into recovery mode...see note below!)

This procedure should be done BEFORE and AFTER every firmware upgrade/downgrade.

My sister's computer is connected via ethernet cable that runs from our linksys router to my computer. All of a sudden her connection becomes limited or none at all. I've eliminated all hardware problems, her cables work, her nic card works, my router works. So I know it's not our cables and router.

I've tried the ipconfig dealies, it still cannot acquire an IP. I've tried manually setting up the IP through TCP/IP and still no luck?

Am I doing something wrong?
Confused....
 

A:Not acquiring IP from DHCP thus, limited or no connectivity

I'm confused. It sounds like she is able to connect, yet you go on to say she can't get an IP?

Assuming she CAN connect, but it is kicking her off.....have you tried updating her NIC drivers?

Hi.
I used to be able to connect to the internet before with no problems. 2 wks ago, the Wireless connection started showing "LIMITED CONNECTIVITY", though, it can see all the wifi networks available in the area. Other computers and wifi enabled devices can all connect easily to the same network. I've tried the following solutions(from the forums) already:
-re-installing drivers, disabling-enabling network adapters
-made sure the passwords are correct
-disabling firewalls
-turning on-off (5mins) the router +PC
-removing and reloading the network
-scanned software/hardware for problems thru built in "vaio care"
(indicated that everything is running normally)

I also tried to run the Network Diagnostics but this error msg always appear= "The Diagnostics Policy Service is not running."- even if i run it as an administrator..

Checked the Local Services and found out that DHCP Client is not running- Tried starting it several times but it won't start and this error msg always appear "Windows could not start the DHCP CLient service on local Comp. Error 5: Access is denied."

I'd appreciate any help/assistance/idea from anyone. Been trying to sort this one out for 4 days now, and still found no solution. Thanks for taking time in reading this.

For the past few days, I've been trying to get internet activity on my PC but I just can't. I've upgraded from XP SP2 to XP SP3 for the obvious to get more critical updates, security and better service but ever since the upgrade I can't. Whenever I've gone back in time with system restore is the only time I've been able to get on the net but that is no longer a solution now thanks to me moving the restore up and not being able to go further back.

Long story short, the 2 computer icons on the lower right hand of my screen says limited or no connectivity. I've researched this problem and I found something interesting. I went into command prompt and typed in 'services.msc' and it brought me to a window named Services(Local). The directions told me to check on DHCP Client and to make sure that it said Automatic under Startup Type and that the Status was Started. Well when I went there the Status was blank even though my Startup Type was on Automatic. I then right clicked the spot and tried to Start which was the only action option available and I got this message: Could not start the DHCP Client service on Local Computer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

Greetings,

My company's network isn't being monitored!
I was given the task of identifying the services that run in DHCP, DNS and Print Servers that need and should to be monitored.
A list of the various services would be what I'm looking for, because then I could google each one and "learn them".
The question is assuredly vague, but I would appreciate any kind of assistance and explanation.

About the DNS Server services I found something like this, if it helps (probably wrong):
Thank you very much.
Primo

Edit 1:

Our infrastructure is Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016.
CPU and Storage are already being monitored.
I'm trying to promote an idea. I am trying to monitor the availability of the DHCP, Print, DNS servers but I need to know the running services/processes of each server that should be monitored.
 

A:Unmonitored Servers! Services that must be monitored in DHCP, DNS, Print Servers?

If by "monitoring" you mean setting up firewall, then short and easy answer is:
Any service that is involved in networking should be monitored.
especially those services which are listeners, which are opening up network sockets on machine.

first thing haxors usually do is scan for listening services, that the first step toward discovering vulnerabilities.

A:no internet connectivity on SOME computers on network. DHCP is on

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.


Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?


On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

Hi,
I recently switched my laptop over from XP to Vista Home Basic and since then I have not been able to connect to the wireless network at my parents' home. The strange thing is that I've had no problem connecting to other wireless networks (at my own home, at work, etc).

On their network, I get a message that says "taking longer than usual to connect to network". Then, it eventually connects but leaves me with "limited connectivity"....and I can't access the internet.

I had no problem connecting to their network on that laptop when I had XP and no other computers are having this problem with their network. I wonder if I'm just missing something simple?? Thanks.

Today, randomly it says theres limited connectoin (no internet connection), but there's numerous other people here with laptops who are connected through the ethernet or wireless network, and their having no problems. I've already tried shutting my computer down and that didn't help, and since this is a school, the internet connection has to be steady, etc. What can I do to fix this?

I have tried by replacing NIC driver and clearing winshok entries but all in vain. But when I reimaged one of the impacted laptop it is resolved so obviously it is not hardware or router fault.

Have you tried using the laptop in the place of one of the other computers that is working normally ?? It could be as simple as a damaged cable!

I couldn't understand what you meant by

But when I reimaged one of the impacted laptop it is resolved so obviously it is not hardware or router fault.

Have 2 computers connected to a Linksys WRT54G wireless router which is connected to a cable modem. Desktop is hardwired to router, Laptop is connected wireless. Desktop shows limited/No connectivity, laptop is connected to router with excellent reception. Have replaced the Ethernet card and cable on desktop with no success. Also have tried unplugging both the router and cable modem and moving the cable from slot 1 to slots 2,3 and 4 on the back of the router. Desktop gives me error screen each time I unplug the cable. Have tried to use the repair option in the network settings but it states it cannot renew the IP address. Have tried to ping the router but doesn't reach it. Stuck what else can I do? Can the router be Bad?

I'm running Vista Home Premium SP2 (all the latest updates and drivers) x64 on a 2.2ghz amd dual core with 4 gb RAM. Recently I had a power surge hit my home and kill my built-in ethernet adapter (I have everything plugged into surge protectors ... EXCEPT the cable that runs to my cable modem, which was also fried). To my knowledge the nic in my laptop is solder to the motherboard, so replacing it would very costly. I decided to purchase an ASIX AX88772 Fast USB 2.0 to Ethernet Adapter. It works perfectly for 24-48 hours (my laptop is running 24/7). However, this is where the problem starts...

Seemingly randomly I will see that my network icon is now showing limited connectivity (even though my usb adapter is still flashing send/rec and my cable modem still has the PC light on ... however the cable modem is no longer flashing the send/rec leds). When I try to repair the connection it always fails. If I try to disable then enable the connection explorer.exe (process that manages network and sharing center) crashes (not responding and has to be killed and then rerun) even if I try this on a different connection (ie my old built in nic, or my wifi). Also, once this happens I am no longer able to connect to ANY networks (via wifi), windows will not locate ANY available wifi networks to connect to (even though there are over 8 in my area). Another baffling symptom is that if I try to shut down/restart/Log off it sits at the restart/shut down/log off screen and never actually com... Read more

This started a few days ago when i turned my computer on, had worked just fine the night before. My computer is assigning its own IP address according to my ISP. They told me that any IP beginning with 164 is self-assigned. I have checked my ipv4 and ip6 and they are both auto configuring IP/DNS.

I'm on another computer at the moment on the same modem. I'm running Windows Vista 64 Home.

Hello.
I tried to set up a home network so I could print to the printer connected to my desktop running XP and my new laptop running Vista. I used some wizard that had me put the network settings on a USB drive and then plug it into my laptop. Nothing good came out of that. (I didnít really know what I was doing) Now when I try to connect to my wireless network on my laptop it says: Currently connected to:

I could connect to the internet fine before, but when I messed with the settings something got messed up. I know for a fact that the problem has to do with my laptop, not router. Iíve tried:
Changing from IPv6 to IPv4
Resetting the network adapter on my laptop

It has no problems connecting to any other wireless networks, but I continually get the 'Limited Connectivity'/Unidentified message with this one, whereas my roommate who also uses a Vista computer gets on fine.

I have tried other fixes from other posts, like disabling IP Helper and going into the System Registry to change the DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag values to '0', but still no permanent fixes.

I will include my IP information below. Also, please note that I have no other firewall but the Windows Firewall & Defender, and a Symantec AntiVirus program that I do not believe is a firewall (but correct me if I'm wrong).

I've never had an issue with my wireless before, but after running advanced system care 3 last night, my wireless is experiencing limited connectivity or stuck on "identifying".

i need it to work with an auto assigned ip. this is important as the user works from various locations.

Hey,

Bit of an odd one here. I work at a company in the UK which is attempting to start rolling out Windows 7 to all computers (early adopters and all that, it's just a lot easier than the current mishmash of OSes we have!). One of the 4 users migrated so far is having an odd issue with her wired network (her network controller is a "Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet"). She's the only person not from the IT dept or the MD of the company to be moved across, so we set her up as a non-administrator to avoid problematic software etc etc.

Suddenly, 3 days ago, whenever she switched on her computer, the connection would claim "Limited or No Connectivity" (even though she appeared to be connected to the Domain), and there was no internet access. Having played around with numerous things (driver updates, both from Broadcom and HP - the laptop manufacturer, being the main one), I found the only way to get it working again was to disable and re-enable the network controller. The problem with this is that it required a UAC authorisation (even though I'd set UAC to never notify), and that requires a domain administrator password (which is a pain in the wotsit).

Anyway, I figured, reluctantly, that if I set her account up as a local administrator, that at least it shouldn't require a password to reset the device. Rebooted the PC, and suddenly the wired network started working from boot without the need to reset the controller.

My question is - has any... Read more

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

Reboot the machine."

However, for my machine, this solution didn't work.

Can anyone suggest other action?

Thanks!

I have a WEP encrypted network setup at home that works just fine with the MAC, WIndows XP desktop and XP laptop connected to it. I have a Linksys router, from a cable modem. My problem is my DH's new Gateway laptop, which runs Vista. We were able to get it connected to the internet just fine at first, but suddenly (no new software loaded, no other changes) the network shows an excellent signal, but Limited or No connectivity. I have tried to re-enter the WEP key, still no luck. After an hour or so of browsing several forums, I have seen that there may be an issue with the Realtek adapter in the Gateway and WEP encryption. Could this be the case? I have also heard to I should consider WPA instead... just don't know where to start.
 

A:Solved: Vista & Limited Connectivity on XP network

Try increasing the encyprtion level up to WPA and see what difference that makes. I read about half your post and then went bakc and saw the last line. (Note: this will kick the other machine s off the LAN).

WEP is so insecure that Vista probably does have a hard time with it. also, try using just Windows Zero Configuration utility as the only means of connection.
