Fix my "Local Only" ad hoc connection

Q: Fix my "Local Only" ad hoc connection

I previously set up a home network that worked..then all of a sudden it says Local Only...I do diagnostic...New Ip..doesn't work...disconnect modem..doesn't work...reset adapter..doesn't work....
The desktop is connected via Local Area Connection and I installed a Belkin Wireless Adapter(USB)...
My laptop Dell connects to the ad hoc network wirelessly...
They both connect to the network fine..but my laptop can't connect to the network
* I have already set the LAC to share its internet connection
I cant set the wireless one to share on the desktop..but I have the option to on the laptop but I don't think that would work...
I made my LAC public..I think that was the default...and the wireless Private...Please help!

Preferred Solution: Fix my "Local Only" ad hoc connection

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.)

public-private are Vista choices -- you need to use PRIVATE. The public choice is
for use at a hotspot where security is extra tight and Print/File Sharing must be inhibited.

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.

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

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.

So the Ethernet adapter is showing an APIPA address which means it isn't connecting to anything, really. Can you give an idea of your setup? Are you just hardwired straight from the router to the computer? Is there a switch? Is the router also your modem?

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!

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.

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"

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.

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.

Hello, so I downloaded hamachi the other day to play with some friends on GMOD and I was finished with hamachi so I decided to un-install it, after doing so, I noticed Google Chrome, Mozilla, Steam and many more applications can't connect to the internet, but Internet Explorer 64 bit is able to connect... I don't know how to fix this and I've done a bunch of research on many ways to possibly fix it but none have worked so far... I use a wireless usb for my wireless connection, it works perfectly fine but my Local Area Connection keeps saying that one message and I just wanna fix it :/ please help?

A:Local Area Connection "Network cable unplugged"

and welcome to the Forum

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:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

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 or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press 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 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?

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.

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.

Hiya, I saw another thread with this title, but it wasn't much help.

I've had my Compaq PC with Windows 7 home for about 6 months, and I last connected to the internet through my Ethernet with no problems, as always, four days ago.

I made no changes then, or since, but now when I try to connect I get the above error message. I've checked the network driver and it says it's up to date.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

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?

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 ?

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!

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

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.

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: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?

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?

I recently bought a new Linksys router ultra range plus. it can broadcast on n, g and b bands. My laptop has a "g" adapter. but after setting up the router i tried to connect to the router and only get "Local" connection. DHCP is enabled in my router but the "ipconfig /all" command on the laptop says it isnt. My room mates connect fine, one has a Mac and one has an HP running vista (not sure the version). When i connect via ethernet the internet works just fine. im leaning towards an adapter problem but im no pro in this field. iv updated the adapter drivers to the latest update (attempting to solve the problem). does anyone have a clue what may be the problem?

Hi guys, I got the iPad 2 in march, moved into a new place with Internet, and finally I've opened up my laptop..... Only to discover it will connect to the network, just not the Internet. Any easy fix for this ?

A:"local only" connection

Welcome Katieanne,
Have you hardwired to the router and set up your laptop with the password for the router ? You need to access the Internet through the device being used by the " local " area you are in, as an example, if you are at your home , you have to use the password as it has probably been set up with one and you have not been told what it is or your mac addy is being blocked . Post back with more info. so i or others can assist you in more detail please.

After Avast did a full scan it listed some files it could not find. They were in the /appdata/local/opera mail/opera mail folder/ So I went to check and found 2 identical "Local" folders. I have a full backup copy of the hard drive which is only a month old and it has only 1 local folder. The only difference between is the addition of the Opera standalone mail program. Everything seems to work OK and no error messages except for the one from Avast. I did scan the files it could not scan and found no problems. Can anyone explain this to me?

Newbie here. I have searched around for a while but have not found a post with my exact situation.

I just installed a new Seagate Momentus 500gb (7200rpm) SATA drive in my Lenovo X61 laptop and have been working on a installation of Windows7 Ultimate.

Not realizing this was an upgrade install disk, I tried to install Win7. I didn't know about the clean install method, so I started over with an installation of WinXP (slipstreamed to deal with the SATA drive).

Next, I ran the Custom Installation upgrade to Win7.

So far, it seems to be working ok.

However, the Local Drive is D: instead of C:. The System Reserved drive in labeled C:. Should I be concerned? Should/Can I change this?

Attached are screenshots of Disk Management and explorer window.

Thank you for any info.
-Nate

A:"System Reserved (C:)" and "Local Disk (D:)" ??

Try removing the System Reserved drive letter in Disk Management to see if Win7 claims C instead. It sometimes works.

There is no reason you can't operate with Win7 as D even though it is meant to always assume the C letter unless it's installer is run from another OS.

But if you do I would not allow a drive letter for SysReserved as programs can write to and corrupt it, especially the ability to make Win7 backup images.

Now that you know you can clean install Win7 without needing XP on the HD, I would strongly consider booting the installer to do a Custom install, choose Drive Options to Delete all partitions, Create new as you wish, then Format before installing to first partition after SysReserved it will create for you. The installer will see an OS at boot to allow use of Upgrade version key upfront during install.

Here are tips to get a perfect reinstall - use the ones which apply: Clean Reinstall steps

Hello Guys and Girls,

My wireless internet connections are currently set to a manually configured status, but this means I am having problems connecting to other wireless connections with free (ie unsecured) connections. I have tried going to properties and ticking the "Let Windows configure my wireless network settings", but I get a dialogue box coming up telling me that not all of my changes have been made.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

A:Solved: Changing wireless connection status from "Manually Configured" back to "Automatic"

Why don't we start with the make/model of the wireless router in use, as well as the wireless adapter or laptop brand. Also, what version and patch level of Windows do you use?

If you have XP-SP2, you can set the machine back to installation defaults using the following procedure.

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

go to Start/Run and type diskmgmt.msc and press enter. In the Disk Management window, if your D: drive is the Boot/System drive the only way to reset it is to reinstall Windows. Remove/Unplug what is now the C: drive. Once Windows is installed plug in the storage drive.

I don't know if this is the right place, but I seriously need some help.
I've got an IP that changes every time my "gateway" (router) is reset.

First of all, I'm using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit. AND IIS. (Internet information services) or something like that..

It's really annoying, because my IP is also a website.

People can access the IP as a site, but when it changes, the old one goes off.
It gets really frustrating! I've tried manually entering it on the gateway, but my gateway just stops working and I have no internet access.

I tried entering it manually on Windows, but it will disable my internet but allow me to access the site from the old IP.

So I have to keep it on "Obtain an IP address automatically"

Please help! I've been on this all day.

Your router gets its "outside" IP from the ISP so that you cant set manually. I assume the website is using that one, correct?

The inside IP's can be manually set but that will only work from the internal lan. Is that what you want to do?

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).

My office just upgraded and I can no longer use Windows XP On this system I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain I had them installed in opposite vertical margins and they "Launchpads", to "Toolbars" for "Docks" (MSese "TASKBARS" NOT add Need were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin and BAM Sorry for the cliche but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up and I just don't think I Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars" can be as efficient without anything comparable Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows GUI and it's making me sick with rage I see only the option to put a quot toolbar quot on an existing quot taskbar quot and no option to create any additional taskbars This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient much less cool about this at all I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues but I see none such in W I have tried every google search string that I can think of and found no answer that deals with anything other than adding that stupid toolbar to the only taskbar that Microsoft will allow you in W So If I'm wrong and have missed some options how do I access them Otherwise I'm hoping there are developers who know what I am talking about and have software to enable the creation of separate taskbars launchpads Can anybody help with either

Hi,
I am hoping you can help me with my problem.
My main laptop (Sony Vaio VPCCB15FG) in the last week just stopped accessing the internet via WiFi.
It says it has Limited Acess but I have no idea how to fix it.

The other 3 computers in the house (Custom desktop, Toshiba Net book, Samsung Laptop) can all access the internet as normal.

It is only the Sony that is being problomatic.
It is also running rather slow for the spec so that may be related.

Please help! I am not super computer savy so please give simple instructions.

Cheers

GTNeil

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?
