My network just says "Acquiring Network Adress" and remains like that forever

Q: My network just says "Acquiring Network Adress" and remains like that forever

I haven't been able to connect to any network lately, not even my phone's hotspot which I'm currently using. I know it's a computer issue, because no other devices have problems connecting.

Preferred Solution: My network just says "Acquiring Network Adress" and remains like that forever

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.)

Here's the situation. I have Verizon FiOs hooked up to my house through a wireless modem. One computer is connected while the rest are wireless. I have a cable tv input in the room I want to add another modem to so that the computer in the room does not have to use the wireless because of the very frequent "acquiring network address" every few minutes (all computers running XP). Is it possible to buy another Fios modem, hook it up to the cable in the new room, and have a hardwired connection in that room? If this is not possible, what might be the problem with the frequent "acquiring network address" deal? The wireless network has a WEP key. Thanks in advance for the help!

From a Johnwill post

IP addresses of all zeros are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
DHCP Service not running.
Firewall issue
Duplicate IP address on the network.
Bad NIC card drivers.
Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.

Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, restart (power cycle) the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.

Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.

Replace the Network Interface Card.

Yesterday, I started to recieve messages that I was infected with the "Cloud Protection" virus. From research, I understand it affects the computer with false warnings and also affects internet connection. I used another computer to run Malwarebytes and Combofix. Combofix cleaned the computer of any virus and malwarebytes cleaned up after it. Since then, I have not any leftovers from the virus. It seems to be gone.
Now, my problem is I still have no internet and the more I do research it seems I am missing registry files.

Netbios and netbt.sys files are two of the files I am sure were missing.

Is there a way to approach this so I can not only do a system recon, but also get it up and running again without reinstalling windows.

I am running XP.

One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan/rootkit.

This type of infection allows hackers to remotely control your computer, log keystrokes, steal critical system information, and download and execute files without your knowledge.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Please refer to Microsoft's Online Safety article for tips on creating a strong password.

Do not change passwords or do any transactions from the infected computer until it has been cleaned.

Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Please stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms seemingly abate.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by a helper.

I recently bought my son a D-Link DWA-25 USB Wireless adapter for his desktop but I can't seem to get it to work. Not matter what I do (I have tried every bit of advice this wonderful forum has to offer) and so for all I get is "Acquiring Network Address." When I run ipconfig, it returns and ip address of 0.0.0.0 and a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0. Customer service for D-Link and Qwest were useless (spent most of the time blaming each other), so any help you guys and gals can lend me would be stupendous.

I put in the wireless software, typed in the correct ID and password, and it says I'm connected, but I'm not, and the network icon on the taskbar is stuck on "acquiring network address".

The wired computer is working fine, so there's definitely no problem there.

I tried disconnecting and reconnecting the adapter, but that didn't do anything.

Tried restarted the computer. That didn't do anything, either.

What's the problem?

I'm not sure if this will help any, but just so you know, I recently reinstalled Windows on this computer. Not sure if that's relevant or not.

Has anyone ran into a similar solution. It does not appear to be a Hardwwre issue . Powering down and up does not help. My wireless card is good and shows working. I am stumped.

I have an old Sony Vaio (VGN S4HP, to be precise), recently reinstalled XP and now I cannot get to connect to my wireless router network. Tried practically everything proposed on older threads but nothing worked. I may be wrong, but I believe the problem was present before the reinstall so the local techie had to set up a static IP to connect to the router. How do I go about doing this myself? I don't have my router's manual.

I have all the passwords and the signal shows up, but it is continually "aquiring a network address". Does he have to change something in his settings to allow access once again?

ipconfig /renew (be patient)

should show your ip address. Hopefull this will work for you.

Hi,

I've had a wireless problem with my laptop for the last 6 months and despite several attempts to get it working, it just won't connect.

I've enabled DHCP, tested the card and it's fine, checked my key has been entered correctly, configured my router, and everything looks fine. I just can't see what's happening with it.

Every time my wireless tries to connect, it doesn't get any further than 'acquiring network authentication'

It's a Broadcom by the way.

I'm coming close to just selling the damn thing...

Any ideas?

Hi,

I have a problem. A certain wireless network PCCard decided to suddenly stop working. It used to work fine, but now when I try to connect it says "acquiring network address" for a long time, then it says I have limited or no connectivity (even though the signal strength is good). I hadn't made any changes to the system before this happened, and replacing it with another older card I have works fine. Anyone knows what the problem might be? Has the card simply broken, or could it be a deeper problem? Thanks!

I recently returned home from college to my home wireless network. My hardware and the hardware for the wireless network have not changed, and I'm trying to reconnect using the same profile I connected with last time I was home. I had this issue before, but I solved it blindly by doing nothing but restarting my computer a bunch of times. That is not working now, I connect to the access point and then get "acquiring network address".

Here is my information:

Wireless N PCI adapter
Linksys router

Default Gateway:

I tried to set up a static IP while away at school (not sure if I was successful or not)
If there is other information that would help please let me know.

I am sure more info is needed and i am happy to put them up as required... Appreciate any help here..

A:"Acquiring network address" problem

you can try running ipconfig /renew which will do the same thing but because its run in dos it tends to work better. Or if you are connected to a router or switch you can try to set a static IP thus the computer wont need to acquire a network address

Today, I purchased a D-Link Wireless-G Router to use in my apartment. My laptop connects to the network fine, but my roommate's does not. If the network is left unprotected, he can connect fine using a Belkin Wireless-G USB adapter and the Belkin software. However, if I add a WEP key, or a WPA-PSK, he can no longer connect. I can still connect to any configuration.

Specifically, when he tries to connect to the encrypted network, the computer connects to the router, but not to the internet - stating "acquiring network address." It then notifies us that the network has little or no connectivity.

Any ideas on how I might fix this? I tried to update the driver and the software to no avail.

Thanks in advance,

If you have let the software create the key, then I would recommend creating the pass phrase yourself so that you can duplicate on troubled machine. Auto generated pass phrases are not always compatible between different manufacturers.

I have just bought a brand new Dell Laptop with built in wireless. I can get an IP just fine from my router, but the built in windows wireless service keeps saying "Acquiring Network Address", even though it already has one. I uninstalled the third party wireless software and it still does it. I seem to remember that Microsoft had a patch at one time for XP that was supposed to fix this. I can't find it anywhere though. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I have had this problem before on a couple other machines and even used the patch, but could never get it to fully go away, it would go away for a day or two and then come back. Anyone know a permanent fix for it?

I have a wireless N router and USB receiver. I am running Windows XP. There is nothing wrong with the router (4 other computers on the network have no problems). I am the only one using XP. My drivers are updated.

It says my signal stength is very good, but I cannot connect to the network. For a few minutes it will say "acquiring network address" but will never connect. Either it will say that indefinitely or sometimes it will change to "limited or no connectivity."

I've been using this router and card on this computer for about 2 months with no problems. This came up just yesterday. I had made no changes to my system.

I followed the instructions in the following link, and it fixed my problem for about an hour. Now I'm right back where I started.

Try the following repairs. If you cannot connect after doing so, disable encryption on the router and connect. That should succeed, and then you should be able to re-enable encryption and reconnect.

Hi folks. This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you. Not sure if that matters.

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled. When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before. After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public". I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated". What does this mean and how can I fix this? How did this happen? Thanks.

I am running Windows 10 Insider build 14332 and had issues setting up home group. After running the home group troubleshooter, my ethernet and wifi adaptors got renamed to "Ethernet 2" and "Wi-Fi 2" respectively.
I am unable to rename it now. It shows an error "Cannot rename this connection. A connection with the name that you specified already exists. Specify a different name."
My internet is working fine but I am finding these names a bit annoying. I have seared online for similar issues but the solutions haven't worked for me.

I searched some of the other similar posts, but nothing quite matched mine.

The last time my computer was connected to the internet was to a college network in October, and it worked just fine. I just had cable internet installed yesterday, and the tech was never able to get it working. Although it says it is connected, it will not get past "Acquiring network address" I bought a new NIC after messing with the computer for hours yesterday, and there was no change.

Also, I'm not sure if its related or not, but I thought it worth mentioning...just yesterday (before the cable installation) my computer started taking 5+ minutes to boot up...way longer than usual.

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Thanks

I'm running a Dell Dimension 5150 that recently updated the graphics card from the stock card to an NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT and NAV 2009, if that helps any. The adapter I'm having an issue with is a Linksys 2.4 GHz adapter (802.11g).

There are two computers running on my newtork; the above-mentioned machine and a new Mac running Leopard. The PROBLEM (at last): the Mac runs on the same network without so much as a hiccup, and my PC is stuck between "Acquiring Network Address" and being unable to connect with the access point entirely, starting the cycle all over again. Before the graphics card upgrade and the installation of Norton, this wasn't a problem.

Thanks in advance!

I am running Windows 10 Professional 64 bit. Whenever I set the option "Turn off the display" to "Never", it reverts back to the default "15 minutes". This is under the "High Performance" profile. I have never, since Windows 3.11, ever had a setting change itself back. I have tried to change it and restart. It will either revert upon restart or shortly after. It will revert back even if I do not restart.

A:Power Option for "Turning off display" remains at "15 minutes"

That sounds like my problem - I leave the computer for an hour and it is shut down (I think sleep mode). I just need to hit the power button and it comes on to where it was when I left - but 2 of my USB devices are lost so I have to restart the computer anyway.

I changed all the power settings to NEVER. But his doesn't seem to make any difference......

Hi,

I'm running a Win XP SP2 machine, a couple of days ago the Network Icons in the taskbar dissapeared. Also, I cannot get into Network Connections to check the connections. The folder is empty.

However, the all the connections work fine, I just cannot edit them or get any details... Cause they're nowhere to be found.

I browsed around the net and found that for this type of problems one needs to check if certain services such as "Network Connections" and "Telephony" are running. I checked, and they are all stuck in "Starting" status. And nothing I can get them to start.

I checked the chain of dependencies and the service they all depend on "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" is started and running.

Any help would be greatly appreaciated, thanks guys!

A:Windows XP Home "My Network Places" refusing to show network computers

You need to look at the dependency list for each service. In the case of Computer Browser, it's Workstation and Server.

Since Workstation is failing, that's probably the place to start.

Do you have WKSSVC.DLL in C:\Windows\system32? That's the workstation service, and it appears to be the missing module. I'd first try copying that from the installation disk, if it's missing, and then register it too by:

Start, Run, regsvr32 wkssvc.dll

If you can't find the DLL, you can run sfc /scannow to restore missing files.

A shortcut may be to download the file from DLL Dump and register it as described above.

My computer was working and all of a sudden I can not longer connect to my network and when I see all available networks mine says "The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network" How can I change the settings on the computer so that they match the requirements of the network? I can access other networks and get online like that, but my network, even the local one, is busted. Please help!

A:"The settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network"

Hi Lori,

This issue usually occurs on wireless network connections. I suggest that you turn off any security feature of wireless. Please click Start->Control Panel, double-click Network Connections, right click on the wireless adapter and select Properties. From there choose Wireless Networks, click on your wireless network name and choose properties. Under Network Authentication choose Open to turn off the wireless security. Please try to connect.

If the issue persists, I suggest that you delete the connection, and recreate the wireless network connections. The following website may help you on creating the wireless connection.

http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-setup-a-wireless-connection

Important Note: Microsoft provides third-party contact information to help you find technical support. This contact information may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this third-party contact information.

Is the issue resolved?

If the issue persists, I suggest that you reinstall the wireless adapter driver, and re-create the connection again.

Remove the adapter driver========================

1. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "devmgmt.msc" and press Enter.2. Expand "Network Adapters", double-click on the entry of the wireless network device.3. Click the tab "Driver", click "Uninstall".4. Click Start. In the Start Search box type "appwiz.cpl" and press Enter. 5. Remove the entries related to the wireless network adapter.

Then reinstall the driver with your driver CD. After installing, re-create the connection.

If the issue is not resolve by the above suggestions, please let me know if other computers can connect to this wireless network.

When I use the netsh command to set and start the "Hosted Network", I can set the settings fine, but starting the hosted network yields "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation.". I have already tried the fix where you enable the "Virtual Adapter" device in device manager, but it did not change anything.
On the flip side, using the "Mobile Hotspot" option inside of the settings starts fine and works correctly.

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.

A:Can't access "Network and Sharing Center" nor "User Accounts"

Hello Jayrrus, and welcome to Vista Forums.

I would recommend that you use Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper to scan your system with at boot to help make sure that your system is malware free first.

Afterwards, you might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had these issues to see if that may be able to fix them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

The control panel opens fine. I can access all items in the control panel

What happens when I open one of the two items is I get a popup saying the
following; WINDOWS EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING.

I used to be able to access these items. And one day, I just coulodn't anymore...

Anyone knows how to solve this? Thanks.

See if running a sfc /scannow can find and fix bad system files that may be responsible for this.

Disable encryption and MAC Address filtering on the router and try to connect. Assuming success you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

If unsuccessful make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter. Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

go into the properties for the local area connection, scroll down to the ipv4, highlight and select properties. Set it to auto obtain an ip address, this will enable the dhcp server settings for the Ethernet connection.

Hey, I am really hoping someone can help me solve this problem, it's driving me up the wall!
When I started using my computer this morning everything was fine, and then "no network access" kept appearing, along with "limited connection/connectivity". I would troubleshoot the problem, but then at the end of the troubleshoot it would freeze, and my screen went black, so I had to turn my computer off and then on again. This problem has persisted throughout the day, I've googled it but nothing really the same as this has turned up .. if someone could please please help me, I'd really appreciate it!

A:"No Network Access" and "Limited Connection/Connectivity" ?

Hi Caoimhe123

My name is Riyazuddin and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell

If its a wired connection - I suggest you to try using a different ethernet cable and check,
If its a wireless connection - Try to get to the router as close as possible and check,

Please specify the type of connection, model of the router, OS and the wireless card your using and reply back

Regards
Riyazuddin M

I ve spent the last two or so weeks attempting to fix this problem I ll explain it to the best of my ability If you have any questions I ll be happy to help you help me My problem started about days ago Prior to this date my service would drop not predictably but enough "Network or Cable (not) no unplugged" is "Limited connectivity" and that I can remember it Comcast has insisted there is no problem and no other computers on the network experienced this problem so I assumed it was something local I never made "Network Cable is (not) unplugged" and "Limited or no connectivity" a real attempt to fix "Network Cable is (not) unplugged" and "Limited or no connectivity" it however because it wasn t a big enough problem to bother me A simple reboot would fix the problem The error would occur most often when I was downloading media and running another program that was accessing the internet The problem would still occur without both happening at the same time however so I assumed that it was a coincidence days ago I was on the internet browsing I left for an hour and upon my return found the internet was disconnected I rebooted and instead of connecting an error came up quot Limited or no connectivity quot After several more restarts I was connected but it dropped out again with the same error I connected looked my Wireless card up and it connected to the network After several days the wireless card came up with the same error In addition the error was still happening with the LAN connection and it would say the network cable is unplugged when it is clearly plugged in I would have assumed it was an error with the router but three other laptops were able to connect to the network as well as my desktop The LAN cable refuses to connect at all and when it says it is connected I still receive the quot Limited or no connectivity error quot The wireless card will connect but often goes out with the same error Right now I m using the Wireless card Doing an IPConfig the Wireless adapter is receiving all settings The LAN connection doesn t see DHCP enabled although it is I m unsure if this is an error or it doesn t see DHCP because it doesn t see the cable as connected right now it is disabled and won t re-enable because it thinks the cable is unplugged I ve looked through many different webpages and attempted the fixes suggested but nothing has helped The cable is still functional and I changed no settings between the time that it worked and suddenly stopped working I m going to retest this by plugging the the cable directly into the modem and seeing what happens I don t believe the NIC has gone bad but in either case I am unsure why this would affect the wireless card I ve disabled any firewalls incase that was causing the issue but it didn t help Whenever the wireless card isn t working I ve noticed it still receives the signel strength as I ve also noted that whenever I get the quot Limited or no connectivity error quot the Wireless card nor the LAN connection is getting an IP from the router This lead me to believe something was conflicting with my computer and the router but I am confused as to why it would only affect the wireless card sometimes I m using an Inspiron running WinXP using Comcast High Speed Internet with a Linksys router and Linksys Wireless G card My onboard card is a Broadcom x Integrated Controller I have my computer docked in a docking station with the LAN connection going through the hub Even connected directly into the computer I still receive the quot Limited or no connectivity error quot I ve contacted Comcast to see if they made any changes that may have only affected my computer After I got through the bull of a recording asking me questions and got to a real person I was told everything was quot green across the board quot When I questioned him further he insisted it was the router even if the router worked for me and is still working for the other comp...

A:"Network Cable is (not) unplugged" and "Limited or no connectivity"

just one statement, I used to have a wireless network and my computer although the closest to the router would have slow or no connetion and the others would be conected and working fine. I changed to wired on everthing for that reason...

Hi,

My PC at home detects this "hidden network". I would like to know more about where is this "hidden network" is coming from. Also, on the win7 laptop, it says "other network". Any ideas?

It means what it exactly states. No SSID assigned to it, it will always state that. There is nothing that you need to know about it, because most times you are picking up the utility systems for remote utility meters.

All of the ones in my town are set on Channel 11.

Hi everyone Oh look it's this thread again Well sort of A majority of what I can find are quot Unidentified Network - No Internet Access quot This is just straight-up quot no network access quot which seems to be a less common issue I'm running Windows Home Premium x and I'm connected to a at No - Network "Unidentified random! Network Access" BT Home Hub a via ethernet using a BT Home Hotspot to make a connection using the power circuitry in the house My connection will drop completely out of the "Unidentified Network - No Network Access" at random! blue It's fine and dandy right now but at completely random times it will just drop I can't clearly predict it In Network amp Sharing Center it attempts to identify the network only to give up and throw out quot Unidentified Network - No Network Access quot I'll detail symptoms and things I've done to try and fix it - - times out of the connection can be restored by disabling re-enabling the network adapter or switching the Home Hotspot off and then on again so essentially disabling re-enabling the connection It will fail again some hours later - I've ruled out any issue with the Hotspot connection method ethernet ports and drivers as I've tried to connect directly to my Hub wirelessly with two separate USB dongles - wireless has the exact same issue and in this scenario the connection can be temporarily restored by moving the wireless dongle to another USB slot Taking it out and putting it back into the same slot won't work it has to be a different USB slot And when that eventually fails I reconnect the dongle into the previous slot and it works This is one of the strangest and most senseless aspects about the whole thing - The issue has persisted across fresh reinstalls for a number of years and even fresh computer parts I gradually built this PC by upgrading my previous one to the point where the only original remaining parts are the old hard drive which my Windows install resides on and the CD drive Said hard drive has been extensively wiped and reformatted with several fresh Windows installs over its life - Issue with the Home Hub Doesn't seem so my dad's laptop connects wirelessly of the time as do my iPod and phone Their connections are speed of the time with no drops I talked to BT just this afternoon they ran a line test and determined there was zero fault with my Hub's connection to the internet I even went as far as buying a new TP-Link modem router recently and the issue persisted albeit manifesting a little differently with the disconnects replaced by very frequently dropping to speeds in the bytes and still disconnecting from time to time - Issue with Hamachi interfering Doesn't look like it on my last clean install I didn't install Hamachi for a while and the issue persisted When I'm not using Hamachi I power it off and Local Area Connection is prioritized over Hamachi I disable the Hamachi network adapter completely issue persists I've tried a bunch of things to fix it both Googling the problem which led me to this forum and adjusting settings under the advice of a friend who is a former IT professional I have checked quot always use this IP address quot in Home Hub settings set a static IP in the adapter's IPv settings disabled IPv updated my network adapter drivers Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller ipconfig release and then renew in an elevated command prompt netsh winsock reset DNS flush resetting TCP IP stack setting quot mbps Full Duplex quot instead of quot Auto-Negotiate quot and uninstalling multiple instances of quot Microsoft ISATAP Adapter quot and quot Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface quot which only end up reinstalling themselves anyway All of these were either advice from my friend who is now stumped or solutions offered by forum threads on Google None of them made a difference I see that some kind of program named quot Bonjour quot can cause this issue but it's not and never has been installed on my PC I kept these static IP sett...

A:"Unidentified Network - No Network Access" at random!

Hello,
The only thing that ever caused me as much trouble was having Apple's Bonjour service running. It totally messed up my network. I remember reading that it had to do with it setting up a 0.0.0.0.0 address. Uninstalling it fixed my issues. Maybe you have it installed?

I cannot connect to certain wireless networks.

- I can connect for example to wifi at my University or a public network such as The Cloud and even BT Open zone, all of these direct you to a page to logon - these work fine.
- I cannot connect to any other network, even if it is an Open network.
- I have endlessly searched Google and tried everything suggested on forums like this - however they were other peoples problems - this is the first time I have made a post.
- I have eventually caved and restored my laptop to Factory settings. The problem persists.

I have attached screen shots showing the exact problem and error messages.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.

- Connecting via cable works fine - I am using that method now.

A:Cannot connect to Wifi network - "Identifying Network"

Shaun, firstly: welcome to Sevenforums!

May I suggest downloading Revo uninstaller: Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems and using it to remove your wireless driver and all bits of it. This is because the built in uninstaller doesn't often remove everything. Now go online (you mentioned connecting via LAN line works alright) and find your wireless adapter driver for your computer (should be on the manufacturer's website). Install it, enter the network password, and let me know if this solves the problem for you.

Problem fixed, after a night of trying every single tweak in the windows operating system, turns out it was the powerline adapter that needed to be reset.
