"Wireless Network Connection" doesn`t have a valid IP configuration.

Post by duck_boi_97 on Thu Nov 22, 2012 6:14 pm

I am using Windows 7. I have limited internet access. when I hang my cursor over the internet connection symbol in the bottom right it says Unidentified network and underneath no internet acces. i am using a wireless bt home hub. I have ran a troubleshoot on my network adaptors and internet connection and both say ..."Wireless Network Connection" doesn`t have a valid IP configuration.

Any help would be greatly apreciated. thank you very much.

Most likely the problem has to do with the router. Have you configured the router with any restrictions other than a possible password? If so, try removing those other restrictions. I'm thinking of MAC filtering or DHCP pool.

Are other devices able to access the Internet when connected to your router via the wireless signal?

On your computer, in Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center: Click on Change Adapter Settings. Open the Wireless Network Connection. Click on Properties on the bottom of the windows. Under the Networking tab, look at Properties for Internet Protocol version 4 and version 6. They are normally set to Obtain an Ip address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically.

Is your computer able to connect to other wireless networks?

There is only one wireless connection in the home.

I have noticed that others qith the same problem were asked to complete a CMD.exe ipconfig/all scan. I completed my scan and noticed that my DNS servers were as follows.

DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . :fec0:0:0:ffff: :1%1
fec0:0:0:ffff: :2%1
fec0:0:0:ffff: :3%1

also...

IP Routing Enabled . . . . . . . . . . . . . : No


Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : [no default gateway]

running ipconfig gives the stats fo all your network settings. You have to look for the settings of your wireless card. You may have to scroll up to find the wireless.

Compare the network properties of your computer with those that are connecting. Here's a repeat of what I posted in post 3:

On your computer, in Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center: Click on Change Adapter Settings. Open the Wireless Network Connection. Click on Properties on the bottom of the windows. Under the Networking tab, look at Properties for Internet Protocol version 4 and version 6. They are normally set to Obtain an Ip address automatically and Obtain DNS server address automatically.
