Networking :: Ethernet Doesn't Have Valid IP Configuration
Aug 24, 2015
So... I just updated from win 7 to win 10, as I got it for free. All went smoothly, but there was no ethernet connection. I'm running a custom built pc, connected to my router via ethernet cable.
At first windows detected the cable, but said: ''Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration." I was on about around the settings, and deleted the ethernet network from windows' settings. I thought it would come back by just re-plugging the cable. This didn't happen. What happened was, that the whole 'Ethernet' tab disappeared from the 'Network & internet' menu!
I also don't have 'Wi-fi' or 'Airplane mode' tabs in the menu... Well I have a pc that doesn't have support for wifi so that might be why...
how to get win 10 to detect the ethernet cable, and maybe that way bring back the 'ethernet' tab?
Oh, and I tested the ethernet cable on my laptop (running win 7), and it worked fine.
Where to start so to begin with my issues started when we got a new router. We had issues with the old one so we installed a new router and got it working fine WiFi worked alright but Ethernet would not connect it my computer when I ran the troubleshooter said one or more network Protocols were missing from my computer I'm running windows 10 version 1511. I went on google on my laptop to start finding a fix and I must have tried every option in the book just about I am losing my mind over how to fix this. Finally I tried reinstalling the Network drive Uninstalling my current one going on google finding my most updated one ect. and now the issue is no longer about the protocols but its saying my Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration
8 hours ago my computer was connected via Ethernet and functioning fine during online gaming.
This morning approx. 4 hours ago I awoke to notice the computer updated and restarted during my sleep. Now the network icon has an exclamation mark and displays "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration."
WiFi functions fine. Other devices connect to WiFi fine. PS3 is wired to a different port on the router and functions fine, so attempted to change ports the laptop connects to, with no success. Bypassed the router completely and went just Ethernet straight, still will not connect via wired connection.
I have powered off the laptop, router/modem with no success in rectifying the issue.
Here is ipconfig all ---
Code: Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10240](c) 2015 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:WINDOWSsystem32>ipconfig allError: unrecognized or incomplete command line. USAGE: ipconfig [/allcompartments] [/? | /all | /renew [adapter] | /release [adapter] | /renew6 [adapter] | /release6 [adapter] |
I have checked network adapters and ensured drivers are up to date. Which they are.
Very frustrated!! I had internet connectivity prior to windows 10 upgrade. The above message is what I am receiving. Network Center states: Unidentified network. I have done the following: Taken modem/surfboard, router and pc down gracefully then brought back onlineUsed windows troubleshooterread thru (and walked thru) dozens of forums with solutions to other "similar" issues**I have tried to connect directly from pc to modem. I get the same results. I have zero connectivity from my pc so I plan on using a thumbdrive if I need to reload drivers. I'm about to revert back to 8.1 and call it quits..
I updated to Windows 10 yesterday and after a few quirks I got it to running as normal, or so I thought. I use an Ethernet cable to connect to the Internet but all I get when I diagnose is "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration". It used to work fine before updating by the way. This is what I've tried
Restarted the computer Turned off the computer, waited a few hours, then turned it on again Unchecked IPv6 Re-installed the LAN driver Tried a different ethernet cable
Tried to follow the tutorial on this website for Windows 8 for this issue but when I type ipconfig /release, it tells me that "an error occurred: an address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint"
Another thing I've noticed, when I enable the Ethernet connection, my computer skyrockets to exceedingly high temperatures (over 99C according to the monitor I have). When I disable it or disconnect it it goes back down to normal. Not sure why this is happening.
EDIT: Looks like the temperature only rises when I check IPv6
After I installed Windows 10 on my computer I cannot connect to internet through the ethernet port. I've tried everything. I get the message that "Ethernet Doesn't Have A Valid IP-configuration". I tried to reinstall the network driver, ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew as admin but it cannot find the "Default Gateway" and when I type ipconfig /renew it cannot connect to the DHCP server.
I've been having the above issue at different times and it is getting a bit irritating to restart the modem(router).How can I permanently fix it so that my internet can be online 24/7 without me having resetting the box?And how come it says that I have no IPv4 connection but IPv6 does have a connection?
My internet was working fine for quite a while after upgrading to win10, but one day both the wifi and ethernet stopped working. They both show a limited connection, or sometimes even fail to identify the network. The error message in the troubleshooter for both ethernet and wifi is 'doesn't have a valid ip configuration'. I have tried rebooting and resetting the router, re-installing network drivers, and restarting everything involved.
The wifi card is called "TP-LINK Wireless PCI Express Adapter" and the ethernet adapter is "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller" and is connected by a Cat5e ethernet cable.
I'm facing an weird problem in Windows 10. I've upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1. If I restart my PC then it shows my network connectivity is limited for both wired and wireless. After troubleshooting it says 'Ethernet does not have a valid IP configuration'.But if I shut down my PC and then start it again then there is not any issue in network.I was using a legit copy of Windows 8.1.
I ran Windows 8.1 on my desktop machine a few months ago, and later upgraded to Windows 10. Everything worked great at that time, but since have replaced Windows with Linux. Now I'm trying to install Windows again, with the same 8.1 disk that I used for my earlier installation, and my ethernet connection isn't found. (this is a direct wired ethernet, not wireless) I've installed with a local user account, dug into every networking utility in Windows, but whatever I do the internet goes undetected. I've run the ethernet thru different routers, and even circumvented the router all-together, but no luck. Has my 8.1 disk "expired"?
i recently updated to windows 10. I'm having some difficulties regarding internet through Ethernet on It. what usually happens is i am able to surf the Ethernet for around 10 minutes, then the ethernet adapter just quits on me. So i run the network trouble shooter and find you that it needs to reset the DNS, which it does successfully. After that my Ethernet doesn't work anymore till I restart the Laptop. my computer's wifi card is an intel wireless n 7260, and the other network adapter is a pcie gbe family controller.
So i recently updated to windows 10, and i noticed i wasn't connected to my Ethernet anymore, so i had to connect my PC to the wifi. Under my "network Adapters" it only shows "Qualcomm Atheros 802.11 1/b/g/n" I tried connecting another ethernet cable, but nothing happened.
I cannot seem to connect on Ethernet though Wi-Fi works OK. I have seen several articles about ethernet problems with Win10.
CABLING First the network config:
Two notebooks, C and D are plugged into a switch and the switch plugged into the router. Now, the cabling is verified to work because computer C, running Win7 connects just fine and if the internet cables are swapped, computer C still connects just fine.
Computer D however does not connect. I did some other things to redundantly check too, just FYI. So cabling looks OK.
ROUTER both computers have fixed (reserved) IP addresses in the router. The router sees computer C but not computer D Just FYI, if I turn on Wi-Fi, the router sees D on WiFi, but not the ethernet.
PING Computer C can ping D Computer D can ping C Computer C can ping the router Computer D cannot ping the router
Some investigation suggested the following, all of which I tried with no better results:
- Update the network adapter drivers (already current) - Winsock posible culprit, so NETSH WINSOCK RESET and reboot - no change
IE used to find and fix these things pretty well, but here we have EDGE. Perhaps I'll try to install IE. Connectivity diagnostics are where IE shined over Chrome and Mozilla.
UPDATE: IE 9, 10, etc. are not compatible with Windows 10. So, the connectivity diagnostics just not as good in Win10. I can tell I am getting tired, as it's getting hard not to swear.
I was wondering if it's possible to utilize both WiFi and ethernet in tandem. I'm pretty sure some of you are going to tell me that I can only access the internet through one of these, up to my bandwidth limit, but that's not what I mean.
I'd like to access the internet through my WiFi connection, yet have a wired connection through my router to access the files on the other computers in my house.
i've been with this problem for months and i have tried multiple solutions offered by others on the internet, yet i'll give it another try here.
i'm using a powerline adapter directly plugged into the wall on my desktop. And it has worked excellent before, but suddenly someday it did not get a valid IP adress anymore for my pc, i have tried giving it an ip adress manually but without succes. i also tried updating the driver but there was no update.
my network and sharing center displays unidentified network and windows problem solver detects the problem 'network name' does not have a valid ip configuration.
I am completely wiping my hardrive with DBAN and doing a clean install of windows 10 with a dvd I created with the media creation tool. Will the fresh installation of windows come with a driver for ethernet cable so I can get on the internet.
I know I can get the drivers and put them on a usb to use after install, but I'm having trouble with malware on other computer and I don't want to transfer anything.It is windows 10 home on a 64 bit Toshiba Satellite C55-C5241 if that matters.
There is 2 computers and 2 virgin superhubs in the house i live in (not both mine) both ethernet connected. Occasionally i have to unplug my superhub and connect my desktop computer to the Wifi on the other hub which is in the next room.My computer obviously "remembers" the password for the wifi and i used to be able to just unplug my hub and it would automatically connect to the wifi without me having to do anything.
Since switching to Windows 10, when i unplug my hub, it says that it is connected to the wifi however it says "limited" and no websites work, effectively not connected even though it says it is.To solve it i have to leave my hub unplugged and restart my computer and it connects instantly and works. Whilst that isn't a huge problem, i sometimes could do without having to save what i'm doing just to restart the computer as i have never had to do this before.
The same problem also occurs in reserve if you get me. Disconnecting the Wifi and then plugging in the hub, it also says limited connection until i restart the comp. Virgin Media have been of no support whatsoever, to be honest I didn't expect them to be as it seems like a computer/windows problem.
Strange issue that just started today. My Ethernet adapter shows unidentified network and none of my apps have internet access, however my web browsers work just fine. I am even making this post from the adapter that supposedly has no access. I have been searching around for a solution, but no problem seems similar to mine. Check out the screenshot below.
My laptop is for some unknown reason not connecting to the internet via wifi or ethernet. It will also not diagnose the problem as it says The Diagnostics Policy Service is not running and it cannot fix it.
I have in the past readily connected two computers directly via an Ethernet crossover cable under Win7 and Win XP but cannot get this to work under Windows 10. No specific messages, just cannot see the alternate device from either notebook. make this happen under Win 10 ?
This didn't happen right away. They worked fine for a month or so. It is not the ISP, my ISP is very reliable, they consistently give me the bandwidth I am supposed to get. 20MB down 2MB up. The problem laptop averages 0.3MB down and 1.5MB up.
The other hosts on my home network are not having any problems. I have another Win 10 Machine that was upgraded from Win 7 that is working just fine. One Ubuntu client and one more Win 7 client.
Fixes I attempted:
I went to the HP website and applied the recommended updates.
Checked Microsoft updates - none were suggested or required.
I removed and readded the network adapter drivers. Several times.
The hardware in question is:
HP Envy 17t Laptop OS: Windows 10 Pro Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.36) Wireless:Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter driver: 188.8.131.52 Ethernet:Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller Adapter driver: 10.1.505.2015
I just upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 and having this annoying issue where the yellow triangle over the ethernet icon in the taskbar will not go away. I can get online and surf so not sure whats going on. I did install the new lan drivers but still getting the annoying yellow triangle .
I have a problem with my internet connection. First, I've tried a PCI Wi-Fi card and a repeater and nothing change.
My computer have a problem with the internet connection. When I play games like Counter-Strike, I'm spiking and I have some rollback every 5s. Here's a picture of my internet connection in the task manager:
As you can see, I'm spiking alot. Sometimes, my PC disconnect from the router (even when it's wired).
What I tried: - Recovery - Flush DNS - Renew IP - Uninstall/Install network drivers and adapter - Uninstall/Install general drivers
And... nothing worked, except one thing: Fix network connection issues - Windows Support
Type netsh winsock reset and press Enter. Type netsh int ip reset and press Enter. Type ipconfig /release and press Enter. Type ipconfig /renew and press Enter. Type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
It's working for like 30 minutes and then I'm spiking and lagging again. I suppose it's a DNS/IP problem. I need to do it again every time I want to play 30 minutes.
PS: When I'm browsing on chrome, I don't see the spike effects, only when I play or skype.
