Local Area Connection "Connected", no net

Q: Local Area Connection "Connected", no net

I have my internet connection saying it is connected but whenever I go onto firefox it tells me it couldnt connect.

ipconfig tells me it encountered an error, repairing connection tells me it can't get into tcp/ip settings. I have tried resetting winsock.

I'm currently not at my computer and I'm being forced to rush, so if you need more specific error messages just tell me and I will post with my phone.

Preferred Solution: Local Area Connection "Connected", no net

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Post ipconfig /all
You may be connected to your LAN, but not the internet.

Running XP on 2 computers. Have them connected by a router. I set the router IP to 192.168.3.1 Everything connects great! When I connect to a wireless network, it all connects, but doesn't work ("connection timed out" or "Page not found" errors. The wire connection shows an IP of 192.168.2.1. If I disable my Local Area Network, the internet connects perfectly. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY I CAN USE MY LOCAL AREA NETWORK AND THE WIRELESS CONNECTION AT THE SAME TIME! Frustrating to the max! Any network specialists out there who can tell me how to fix this? Thanks!!!

You should know that x.x.2.1 is incorrect. For the router address shown, all devices that connect to it *must* be 192.168.3.x where x > 1 and < 255.

I would suspect that you have some static configuration data in the devices.

You want your router to offer DHCP in the range 2->32 (that's more than enough) and
you want all systems to use DHCP for the IP address and DNS settings.

Remove anything in the Alternative Configurations

You should first try resetting the router by holding down the reset button for 30 seconds, still holding down the button, unplug the router for 30 seconds, power back up while still holding down the button for 30 more seconds.

After that it's required that you go into the routers settings and make sure the wireless is set up correctly, you need to add SSID "name of network" set up a password to connect, then choose the security and encryption, WPA2 and AES encryption tends to work best with Windows 7 drivers.

After that check your wireless profile for this connection by going to the Network and Sharing center, look left for "Manage wireless connections" and use the same settings that you used for the router.

If you are still having problems please post the ipconfig/all from this machine and I'll have a look at it.

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

A:""Local Area Connection" Doesn't have a valid ip config

To start off I have to say two things.
Welcome to the forums,
Sorry about the length of time before a reply 23 hours.

In you Nic card setting is Tcp/Ip v6 enabled? If yes try to disable it, there are known issues with v6. If its not enabled enable it your router may be handing out Tcp/IP v6 address.
Have you tried to set a dynamic ip address on your machine yet?

If you dont know how to set one up I would be more than happy to help you with it.

Hey, so I have a problem and although i'm terrible at describing computer problems I'll give it my best shot. So one day I turn on my HP Pavilion dv6000 with Windows Vista x64 Ultimate and the internet would not work and it had been the previous day. The wireless connection switch is turned on and the light is blue, not orange, but my computer will not detect any networks. My little brother has an HP desktop with the same OS but he is not having problems connecting or finding the network so the problem is obviously internal to my computer. WHen i diagnose and repair it...i get the message: "plug a cable into the network adapter "Local Area Connection"." Again my connection is wireless and i have no idea how to fix this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. So I came back to my desktop after a weekend away, and all of a sudden my wired network has changed to "Unidentified Network" with no network access. I have never had a single problem with this before and I've tried several fixes that do not do a thing. I live in a dorm and am plugged directly into the wall. I also use a switch to use an Xbox One. I have tried plugging the PC directly into the wall instead of the switch to no avail. I've also turned everything off multiple times. Here is my ipconfig information
I'm not sure if this matters, but I feel I should mention that both my IPv4 and IPv6 Connectivity display "No network access"

Hi everyone.
2 questions:

1) My windows 7 stuck at "shutting down". Doesn't matter if i'm restarting or shutting down. If i don't touch it, then i get a BSOD after about 10 minutes.

2) every once in a while i have no connection to the internet. If i troubleshoot, windows says there's a problem with my local area connection, but doesn't fix it. Only if i restart, and then troubleshoot, it resets my "local area connection" and everything's fine. I remember in windows xp i would just press "disable" on the local area connection, and the enter again, and it would restart it automatically. But i have no idea how to reset it manually.

Thanks!

Somehow I've managed to do something that prevents me from entering the Local Area Connection Properties window. When I do I get a message, "The controls on this property sheet are disabled because one or more other property sheets are already open. To use these controls, close all these sheets and reopen this one."
Who ever hear of property sheets? At this moment I can't access the internet due to (I think) an impoperly set component in the Local Area Connections window. Thanks, I think, to McAfee putting a Firewall component in there.

Puzzled and Frustrated.
 

A:"Property Sheets" in Local Area Connection Properties

When you right-click on an object, i.e. Local Network Connection, and select Properties, it opens the Propertiy Sheet for that object. You may be correct that the firewall has controll of the properties for the NIC and therefore the system won't open the properties again until the first instance is closed. Try opening your services from the Computer Management MMC and stop the McAfee services relating to the firewall. See if you can then see the properties of the network connection. If so, you have found the culprit. What to do about it as it will probably take control again when the services are restarted, I don't know as I don't use McAfee's firewall. If you can remove it, Agnitum has a free firewall that works very well. I have satelite connection and have not had an issue with either doing what I want or getting hacked.

I set up ICS on my computer following the directions from http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Using-ICS-Internet-Connection-Sharing.
I'm able to get network access, but no internet access. When I tell the computer to diagnose the problem, it tells me that the local area connection doesn't have a valid ip address.

How can I fix this?

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

I remember reading that many people had issues in the past with the Nvidia NICs and were disabling them in favor of PCI add-in NICs. If you don't have one to try, it shouldn't be hard finding a friend with plenty of them. It's worth a shot, if you have access to one.

Is your laptop running Windows 7? If not, it is possible (rare, but possible) that the router isn't compatible with Windows 7.

I'm running into an issue which is hindering the enjoyment I am getting out of my system. Quite frequently I am getting these issues where I lose connection to the internet at random times. I then "Trouble Shoot" problems with the connection and I get the fixed issue of: "Local Area Connection Doesn't have a valid IP configuration."

I've looked in several other posts, and nothing has quite worked out for me thus far. I have general medium level of understanding relating to computers. Hope to hear an answer soon.

Thanks in advanced.

Can you post a screenshot of your ipconfig /all output?

Or try this:

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

Yes, I know there have been lots of people asking about this problem, and I've tried a few different things, but I just can't get the internet to work.

I'm pretty sure it's not the router, a computer with WXP works just fine, as well as Xbox Live. Ipconfig in command prompt came up with 169.254.187.196 as Autoconfig IPv4, if that makes a difference. My only active network is an unidentified, public network.

I've reset PC, modem, and router. Ping 127.0.0.1 was successful, so does that mean it isn't the NIC? The NIC is, I believe, a Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet. I didn't have the option to rollback drivers so I guess that won't work =/.

Tried netsh int ip reset and netsh winsock reset.

Suggestions?
BTW I'm a total noob with computers and networking so I partially have no idea what I'm really talking about


The fact that ipconfig is showing the 169.254.187.196 indicates that the nic/wifi is not connecting with the router. You might want to re-boot the router and pc at the same time.

If that doesnt fix it you need to examine the advanced adapter settings.

Let us know so we can help you.

have you got another cable you can try ?

are other pcs connected to the router and are they working ok - if so ho connected

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, kaspersky or Mcafee or any free security suites like zonealarm, AVG , Webroot etc

do a tcp/ip reset
and also try in safemode with networking - see below

Safemode with networking
with a cable connected from PC to router
check the cable - see if there is a light on the router associated with the cable port used , also check if you have a green/yellow light on the PC LAN port (some PCs do not have any lights on the LAN port - so ignore)
- try safemode with networking (sometimes wireless does not work with safemode )
as the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu appears - choose
safemode with networking - see if that works

I was browsing my computer as usual talking on skype etc etc. Until I disconnected. I thought nothing of it until about 10 minutes later when I was still disconnected. I troubleshooted the idea and googled solutions and so far nothing has worked. I'm using an ethernet connection with a powerline adapter.
 

A:"Local Area Connection" Does not have a valid IP address.

So is it fully disconnected now ?
do you have another PC you can try on the powerline connections?

or can you move the PC next to the router and try with just the cable between the PC and Router ?

Hello all - I just purchased a Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R motherboard, which replaced my ASUS P5Q that died.

After I loaded all of the drivers (using Vista x64), the first thing I noticed was my LAN connection speed was signifcantly slower than on the ASUS. So I started poking around in the Realtek "advanced configuration" properties. I changed one item:

1) Flow control - from "enabled" to "disabled"

After making the change my speed jumped significantly. However, that brought me to the question of if I need to change any of the other settings? Are there settings to be made for ultimate LAN performance?

Hi,
 
Thanks for the post!
 
This issue is caused by an invalid IP. Let’s try to get new IP automatically.

 
Input cmd in search bar, run as administrator
Input ipconfig /release, then input ipconfig /renew
 
If it’s still fail, please input ipconfig /all
 in cmd to check the result to see if the computer have a valid IP.

 
Does the computer connect to a network device? Such as router or switch. Please temporarily remove/replace it to check if it works.

 
In same sub net, other computers? Do they work?

Hey,

I'm having trouble maintaining a stable internet connection. The icon in the taskbar would randomly display a problem with the connection. When I go to click on the "X" on the network map to resolve it, it would go through a bunch of steps and eventually end up resetting "local area connection" adapter. Most of the time this would work but sometimes the computer would say it couldn't even find the problem.

Below are the current settings I've set for the adapter, but the problem still occurs sporadically.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

A:Dell Precision laptop showing message,"Local Area Connection Network cable unplugged"

If you don't have an ethernet cable connected then that message is normal. Since you apparently don't use it you can disable the connection in Network Connections to get rid of the nag.

It's impossible to guess what files might have been modified by the malware, the malware fighter, or the computer guy.

Does your wireless adapter appear under Network Adapter in Device Manager as OK? What, if any, warning or errors are there in Device Manager?

Assuming you are using an integrated wireless adapter is it switched on? Can you detect your network?

Hello,

I started playing Xbox 360 again today, and i tried to go online, which apparently didn't work out anymore...
So i tried to fix things by checking my "Local Area Connection" on the pc, and it just disappeared?
I used to have it there before, now it's gone.
Probably because of reinstalling Windows 7 about a month ago?
I've looked up many threads, but nothing really applies to my exact situation, or i just end up not understanding them.
Anyone could help me out here?

Thanks already!

Hello,

To start off, I'm running W7 Home Premium from an Asus U47A. The issue I'm having began around the New Year's eve. If I remember correctly, the internet would suddenly disconnect whenever I was on Skype, which was annoying, but a quick reboot fixed it. However, it began to happen more and more frequently. Now, the issue has evolved into something worse. The internet stops working and it gives me the error messages I've attached below.

I've spent a lot of time looking around for answers, but I haven't found any that have helped. I've adjusted the settings on my N 2334, preformed a clean boot, ect, but I haven't been able to solve it as of yet.

Please help me!

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).

I just moved to Peru for my study abroad. When I first connected to the wi-fi in my homestay I was successful. Suddenly, I cannot get internet access and it says it is an "unidentified network". I have tried manually inputting IP addresses, DNS, etc. I have tried forgetting the network and disabling my virus protection. I can't even get internet when I plug an ethernet cable into my computer, directly into the router. My laptop is the only thing that isn't working, other people's computers work and my iPod and smart phone work with the network. I have a Lenovo Win7 PC, running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

A:Cannot get internet access on wireless nor local area, "unidentified"

Hello barooke Welcome to the Seven Forums!

The place to be is in the Control Panel>Network & Sharing Center. Note the image here.

Once you click on the link you will find the troubleshooting options for internet connection at the top as well as for network adapters. If you select the network adapters option select the "all adapters" option as well as the advanced which will see the automatically fix errors box already checked off.

You should be seeing a large red X right inbetween the network name on your laptop like unknown and internet when first opened. If the first attempt using the network adapters option works that will become a solid line as seen in the image there.. Clicking on the red X itself is the same as selecting the internet connections options which also sees the automatically fix errors box checked off under Advanced.

A:"Local Area x" does not have a valid IP config

You aren't getting anything from the router here, no default gateway no valid IP, really nothing looks to be correct in your ipconfig.

Dlink ended support for this router years ago, although I did find a more recent firmware for the DI-524 version B4 only "check your version number on the router".

http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDow...oad-69773.html

Certain versions of that router may work with limitations but according to the Windows 7 compatiblity center your router isn't compatible with Windows 7.

For awhile, my laptop was sluggish and I would get random pop-ups. Scans with Malware showed nothing, but I wasn't able to update it or anything else. I got the latest version of Malware on my laptop and it found over 40 viruses. It removed the viruses, but now I can't use the internet. Firefox and AIM fail to connect. Local Area Connection reads "Connected". My router and IP settings are good. Any help would be appreciated.

I have an issue with a Dell Dimension 8300 system. It has an Intel pro 100/ve network adapter.

This week i lost connection to the internet, either from the DSL modem or the router. Connections work fine on a Sony and IBM systems.

I can ping the router or the modem when connected, and I can get into their config windows, but no internet.

A strange thing, is that when i unplug the network cable from the PC, the Local Area connection keeps connected (as if the cable was still plugged). Now when I reboot the PC with the LAN cable unplugged, the Local Area Connection icon shows the message of "acquiring network address" and then ends up with "limited connectivity"... but there is no cable plugged.

I look all over the web for a solution or similar issue, i tried resetting all possible parameters.

Can someone help?
thanks,

So, I usually acess internet on Wi-Fi, and now I have travelled, and got my laptop with me. The internet here is Local Are Connection, the one with the cable, and it says I am connected, 100 Mbps, but no internet access! I can't browse or open anything that has to do with the internet... However, It works perfectly fine on EVERY other laptop. What is the problem?
I've searched a lot of places and I've been told to write commands like
ipconfig/ all
andd
netsh int ip reset.log
but when I do that I get "The following command was not found : int ip reset.log"
I set the properties in TCP/IP to Automatically detect settings .. but nothing.
I REALLY need help because my exams are coming up, and I REALLY REALLY REALLY need my laptop and internet to study! Helppp!

I have a chart in an Excel spreadsheet, and it has several "series" in it. Some of the series are charted as "lines", and some are "areas" that fill in the entire background of anything from 0 to the value I have entered.

I have one particular series that is showing up as an "area" but I want it to be drawn as a "line" instead, so it DOESN'T fill in the area below it. I currently have the "background" as "none", but now I have a line from the last value down to "0", and that's what I want to avoid...

Thanks in advance!

A couple of days ago my laptop was working fine and connected wirelessly to the Internet. Yesterday it wouldn't connect at all, only locally, without access to the Internet. Other devices in the household can connect though. After restarting the router and my laptop numerous times, I did a diagnose and repair, and the only solution was "security settings on this computer might be blocking the connection. the following policy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect: policy provider: windows firewall, filter name: query user. If the policy provider is firewall click for information....". So I tried messing with the firewall settings and nothing helped. My friend walked me through updating my driver and that didn't help. I'm just really confused and I want my laptop to work again. It is an hp pavilion dv5-1235dx and the OS is Vista.
 

A:Wireless connection reads as "local only" - says it could be a firewall issue?

Do you get internet access with an ethernet connection?

What firewall or security suite on the system?

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Also show ...

We have a Belkin router hooked up to our desktop and cable modem, and two laptops using that wireless connection. As of tonight, all our computers are failing to make this connection. I'm online now thanks to an unsecured connection I was able to hook into.

The icon in the lower right of the screen tells us, "Signal Strength: Excellent; Status: Connected." What could possibly be going wrong?

This isn't a problem with Wireless Zero Configuration, incidentally; my wife had that problem in the past, but that isn't it. Our three computers all insist we're connected just fine, yet no websites will come up on any of them.

Any theories? How could I even know where to begin?

Thanks.

Hi! I connect my computer to the internet via a TP-Link router using an ethernet cable. When I turn the router on, I receive internet access, and it works fine. After a short period of time, I can't open any website, although the LAN connection status in my Windows XP SP3 is "connected"! When that happens, the LAN LED on the router is flashing while it lights without flashing in the natural situations!
**** NOTE: I have a laptop connected to the router wirelessly, and the internet works fine in it.
I hope to get fast response!
Thanks previously!

Hello,
I am having a little problem. I recently moved into a house with a wireless modem and everything was working fine until a few days ago. The internet is connected to the computer but the pages wont open, they start to open then give me"cannot find server" when i try and repair the connection the message says "cannot renew ip address" This is frustrating and I dont know what to do. I have reset the modem, didnt work. Any help would be great
Thanks

A:internet connection is "connected" but cannot open any pages

try power cycling the router. do not reset the wireless router. just remove the power for about a minute or so. plug it back in.

is this only your computer having the problem, or others? wired, wireless?

So I guess the title says it all:

Internet connection in (in the Internet Connection list) shows "Connected" but I can't go to any website.
neither in Opera nor in IE.

Fresh installed windows XP SP 2
Connecting through the Ethernet LAN wire.
The connection was working before I reinstalled Windows.
The connection shows the name of my Ethernet device so I don't think it's a driver problem.

Thanks

What is your computer connected to? Go to "run" from the Start menu and type cmd then when you get a black box type ipconfig and then hit return. Then post back with the first part of the ip address, DON'T post all of it!

A:Wireless Network Connection "adapter is not connected"

It may help to reset the N900 Netgear router using the reset button on the side of the router. It's fairly typical for the wireless to go out while the wired connection will keep on working.

It sometimes requires a 30-30-30 reset to fix the router.

Hello,

whenever I'm connected to a network, the attached icon is displayed. The other icons (e.g. the spinning wheel thing when establishing a connection) do work, but the "connected" icon seems to have disappeared for no reason. I did not install any new software and I don't know what else might have triggered this, it was just that way when I booted my pc a few days ago.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

A:Network connection icon always shows "not connected" even though I am

You might have a two adapters enabled. Right click on the bars and open the network and sharing center. Then in the left pane click on change adapter settings and see if there are 2 adapters present. If so disable the one that isn't wireless..I don't know if the two are related but mine used to look like this the left pic now it looks like the right pic. And it happened right after some windows updates.

i don't know if i am missing something or it is a bug on w10.
i click "add new bluetooth device" and then i can pair a lumia, ok. i can see my phone in "join personal area network" window.
if i try to pair the phone from "join personal area network" window i can see it in bluetooth devices list but not in "join personal area network" window.
so... it is a bug?! did i make anything wrong?! what is the difference between "add new bluetooth device" and "join personal area network" on w10?! what is "join personal area network" used for?!
thanks

A:"add new bluetooth device" vs "join personal area network"

Most likely a bug with your Windows phone, not Windows 10. Microsoft is not supporting the Lumia line that well. It does help when you ask for help, that you also post the model of the phone, what OS version it is running, along with screenshots or logs of what is wrong.

After working fine yesterday, my computer up and decided that there are no longer any connections available to connect to my network and the internet. I have read through several forums and have tried several of those solutions to no avail. Here are the steps I've gone through without success:

System Restore (I get an error saying it could not restore due to virus protection. Virus protection disabled, same message)

Reset Winsock, IPv4 and IPv6

Uninstalled and re-installed network adapter in device manager (Device reports that it is working fine)

Here is also a copy of my IPconfig /all:

Windows IP Configuration

Host Name: Downing-PC
Primary DNS Suffix:
Node Type: Hybrid
IP Routing Enabled: No
WINS Proxy Enabled: No

I've also tried changing ports on my router, and the cable. None of these have worked. I'm all ears for new ideas.

A:"Not connected - No connections are available" on wired connection

You need to post all of the "ipconfig /all" output, when you have the command prompt open and ran the ipconfig /all right click within the prompt window then Select All, paste in the forum reply area.
