A:Constantly Acquiring Network Address

You have WLTRYSVC.EXE running which appears to be a service rekated to a Vroadcom wireless NIC. You don't want to use it and Wireless Zero Configuration to configure your NIC, just use one or the other.

You might also try temporarily disabling your firewall to see if it is a source of the problem.

Hey guys new to these New Address Network Acquiring CONSTANTLY forums I have a real nice stumper for you CONSTANTLY Acquiring New Network Address So about a month or so ago I had a problem with my DSL modem overheating so I ordered a new one from AT amp T I run a simple home networking setup DSL Modem going into my PC and a Secondary NIC with Crossover Cable connected to the downstairs computer I dial my DSL Through Windows Ran it this way for many many years with the old Modem no problem at all But now when I hooked up this new one it connects fine everything works great but for some reason the Secondary NIC Card is constantly Acquiring a New Network Address The lease is usually only set for like seconds I feel that this is having a performance impact on my system as it has to renew it so often Also my event viewer is just OVERLOADED with these error messages occurring every - mins quot Your computer has lost the lease to its IP address on the Network Card with network address B E quot quot Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network from the DHCP Server for the Network Card with network address B E The following error occurred The semaphore timeout period has expired Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address DHCP server quot One of my theories about this is that the new DSL Modem has an interface I can connect to by going to in the browser and when I use Internet Connection Sharing to share my DSL Connection it automatically sets my main NIC with the Static IP of I m almost certain they are conflicting because when I have that static IP set I can t access the modems interface How can I fix this I tried setting the IP differently but when I do that the ICS stops working or the problem persists Ideally what I would like to do is be able to access the modems interface have it set to dial my connection by itself so I no longer have to manually do it and be able to share that connection I ve had it all setup to do that but once again the downstairs computer couldn t connect I m assuming from the IP conflict Sorry this is so long but I know from experience its better to give a lot of detailed info instead of just being like quot my internets is not werkingz quot nbsp

my i was setting up my uncle's new laptop.
with sky broadband (netgear router)
it works through ethernet connection, but whenever i try to connect it using the wireless network (which it can see) it accepts the ssid and code but then just constantly tries to acquire a network address.

i think it's set to automatically assign ip etc. so i cannot understand what the porblem is.

the wireless adaptor (built in) is an Atheros AR5005G

i have also tried controlling the networks via windows and the Atheros software with the same results

anyone got any ideas, for my next visit?

You should download and install XP SP3 and do all updates. Use your NIC card and a Ethernet cable to do the updates. That may solve your wireless problems.

I was connected to my neighbors wireless network via Linksys for several months, but after he had it shut off and reconnected they gave him a different IP address, ID and password. 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?

A:Wireless connection "acquiring network address" continually

Let's give this a shot, practicing our ipconfig and netsh commands...

Open an elevated command prompt.

netsh winsock reset catalog

netsh int ip reset reset.log

ipconfig /release (be patient)

ipconfig /renew (be patient)

ipconfig /all

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

I dont know what else to do im on my laptop now so idk how to get the cmd screen here.HELP!
 

A:invalid ip address/ acquiring network address

Mr Juice ,

Yeah it looks like your WiFi router is not, acknowleding your Adapter with IP address. A good trouble shooting command is

ipconfig in the cmd prompt, (Usuually you will see starting with 192.168.x.x... or something or 172) but if you see 169.x.x.x, then tell me. I can say you have a problem

ipconfig/release and then ipconfig/renew see if this helps.

Thanks

Or more precisely, I connect for about 2 seconds, and I'm immediately bumped off. My roommates tried to fix it, but in vain. the signal is coming in strong on my computer, so I'm not sure what the issue is. any help is definitely welcomed.

When your connection fails is there another wireless signal on the same or close channel?

Any other possible objects that could be interfering with the one connection, but not the other ones--2.4Ghz cordless phone, TV, Microwave, etc.?

I take the lack of response to mean that there is no new information on this type of error. I was hoping that since it is so common someone may have discovered the most likely solution.

Hey Mike,

What makes you think AVG deleted LSP items? It show in AVG log?
Have a file name it deleted? Path?
SmitFraudFix find something?

What OS is this laptop please?
If XP what service pack does it have? 1 or 2 or none?

Don't post no logs here... let me know what you found and I'll get the thread moved to HJT if necessary.

Running SmitFraudFix on a non infected computer will reset the background settings like that blue...
To fix:
Right click desktop> properties> desktop> change pic in there.
Apply settings.
Need to log off/on again to make it work usually.

A:Not acquiring network address

Well, I read thought your whole ordeal so far... and yikes, what a mess. I would strongly suggest that you try a fresh Windows install after doing a full format. Since this is a laptop, can you perform a "factory restore" returning the laptop to like it was when you first took it out of the box? Are there any yellow exclamation points in the device manager?

My laptop when wired to the home network router cannot renew the IP address. It was stays in that mode of "acquiring network address". When the 'repair' is initiated, all I get is the message. It will connect to a wireless network readily however. Please someone school me.

when moving from wireless to wired, it helps to DISABLE the wireless adaptor,

My computer has recently started saying "acquiring network address" and has not been able to connect to the internet. My toolbar has also reverted to what looks like an older version. I run on xp and I have internet explorer 7. I have run virus scans and stuff already. I have also done some research, but most explanations for my problem are full of techno-lingo. However, I have tried running ipconfig but that hasn't worked. If anyone could offer some step by step instructions, I would greatly appreciate it. I'm not that good with computers but I know some stuff. Oh yeah my connection is wired (however you say 'not wireless')

Ok....the icon on the toolbar that shows the status of your netwok connections is on the tool bar and if you double click on it says Acquiring Network Address, below that it lists the ip address as 0.0.0.0,,,,

I am currently using an NVidia nForce networking card, i also tried using a linksys fast e card and I get the same message.

I connect to the internet through a Speedstream dsl modem.
 

A:Acquiring Network Address

Is the Modem also a router?
If it is just a modem does your ISP require you to let them know what the MAC address of your network card is?

Does device manager show that the network card is working properly?
Has the connection ever worked in the past or is this a new connection?
What Operating System are you using and what service pack level is it at?

I've recently (1 week ago)had the pleasure of getting the XP Antispyware 2012. I printed out the uninstall guide from this site, followed the procedures and got rid of it. But now 1 week later I cannot go on the internet and the network icon in the bottom tray says "acquiring network address". I searched and followed the posts to get the internet connection to work again on this forum, but couldn't get it to work.

I have latitude d610 laptop that will not connect to the wireless internet at my house anymore. Sometimes it will pick up the wireless sometimes it won't. When it does it seems to get hung on acquiring network address. It works fine on other networks and other laptops work fine on my home network. So I know that the wireless card and the router both work. I deleted the network from memory on my laptop and now it doesn't want to detect the wireless network. I have repaired the connection, reinstalled drivers, reset the router, and checked various settings but I didn't see any abnormalities. What should I try next?

It sounds like your wireless adapter may be failing. Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. Also show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Hey all,

So my internet connection appears to be working fine [other housemates continue to use it without problems] but for some reason I'm finding that my own connection seems to be okay but is "acquiring network address" continuously, meaning I am unable to access the internet.

Currently my network connections set it to acquire an IP address automatically. Previously I manually input an IP address and whilst that told me that the connection was "very good" and "connected", I was still failing to access the internet [opening IE would lead to the "This page cannot be displayed..." message and repairing didn't help].

CMD'ing it shows that the IP address is currently 0.0.0.0 which is not ideal, so I wonder if I could manually input another IP address that may have more success?

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Restarted my computer and the same thing happened again. I can't even go to my router's ip tried 192.168.1.1 in IE and it wont load. Im going to assume its my router's problem because i had this problem in the past but it was resolved in a day.

A:Acquiring network address / network cable unplugged

Rule #1: never allow Windows Update to update your hardware drivers!

Okay, there are lots of other more important rules; that one's probably about #23 or so. Still...

Did you try the "Roll back driver" option to go back to the previous working version? You could try obtaining an older version of the driver and force the system to install that... you don't specify what version of Windows, but most of them try pretty hard to make things mindless for the users and so may not be replacing the bad driver with the one you want if it thinks the bad one is "more suitable".

First, boot into Safe Mode, go to the Device Manager, and Uninstall all the instances shown of the network adapter.

When you reboot, Windows will redetect the NIC - tell it you want to "Install from a list or specific location", then "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.", and finally use the "Have Disk" button to point it at the older version of the driver. It may complain about it being an older or uncertified driver, but tell it to use the driver anyway.

Glad you fixed your problem.

Just a comment...
When troubleshooting your wireless problem, you summarized the actions you took.

Maybe you just didn't mention doing it, but as a very first thing to do: I find it often helpful during wireless problems to grab a network cable and run wired connection between the computer and router to see (1) if that connection is working (2) see what might be going on in the router and its current status

I've read all the blogs, tried all the fixes, and everything seems to point to needing the 'AFD Driver'. I checked the computer and it's missing from the list of systems--virus??.

The network connection is stuck acquiring network address. The only program I could access and run in safe mode was Malwarebytes. After running that I was able to open Avira antivirus and did a manual update and ran the software. After a number of scans with Avira, Malwarebytes, and Ad aware, I finally removed the trojan. I have the same 'acquiring network address' issue trying to connect through the wireless card or plugged directly to the router. Tried the repair option without success. Any suggestions?

Any clue on what the problem might be?
 

A:Stuck on Acquiring Network Address

Check the router for encryption, MAC address filtering, and the number of DHCP clients allowd on the network. Your probably going to need to hardwire it to the router to check most of that out.

The computer detects the network and says it's connected with excellent signal quality, but it gets stuck on "acquiring network address". After about a minute, it stops trying and says not connected. Then it repeats the entire process all over again.

I did an ipconfig and the following shows up:

From a Johnwill post

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

Diagnosis:
DHCP Service not running.
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.

I am able to connect fine to my wireless network and browse and internet, but it keeps saying "acquiring network address" over and over again; it will not say it's connected, even though i am! I get this problem from ANY wireless network i connect to, its 100% not my router causing the problem. I cannot simply disable the taskbar icon and ignore it. I can resolve the issue is resolved if i go to "network connections" and hit F5 to refresh, but thats not what i want to do every time i connect to a network. It causes a problem because i can never tell if its actually acquiring network address or not. I have this problem also on my dell laptop, which has SP2. Right now im using SP2 on the wireless desktop causing the problem.

Hello, I have a Linksys PCI wmp54g Adapter and I am running Windows XP (i dont know what service pack)

The problem I have is that when I try to connect to my wireless internet I get stuck acquiring the network address. A couple days back the connection would work for a minute then just go off. And now it doesnt connect at all. I relocated the computer and tried to connect there but the connection wouldnt recieve any packets and would stay at "limited or no connection" Ive tried most the obvious tricks like using windows zero config, setting the option to windows to configure my wireless networks. Please help, anything is greatly appreciated. I will post my ipconfig from the cmp in another post.

A:Solved: Acquiring Network Address

Hi;Let's look at a few basics,and go further if need be.

IP Addresses all O’s
From a JohnWill post:

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

Diagnosis:
1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. 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.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.

And this will be an expansion of # 3 above.

Let’s take a look at the status of the network adapters

Device manager:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?
4. Under general tab should be enabled and working properly.
5. If error code,what is it ?

And,from your ipconfig,no default gateway indicates that no router has been found.

hi. my wireless internet abruptly lost its connection and now it is stuck at "acquiring network address" , but the signal strength is at 100%. i checked the IP and it's at 0.0.0.0. i tried to release and renew and it wouldn't let me and giving error message "the operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for the operation." does it mean my linksys wrk54g wireless router or the linksys wpc54g ver. 4 adapter dead?
my main pc is "wired" to it and having no problems, it is just my notebook that is using the adapter.
let me know if you need something else. thanks!

My laptop is a SonyVaio running Windows XP SP2. It was slow after 5 years use so I restored and repartitioned drives. In the task bar my Belkin wireless router is showing excellent signal strength but when I try to connect with IE it hangs looking for the address.
In ipconfig I have tried release/renew/all etc., but no joy. In wireless networks the TCP/IP properties shows 0:0:0:0 where it should show 192.168.11.1 I think.
I have disabled Norton Antivirus and firewall, but again no progress.
What to do next? Thank You.

A:Stuck on "acquiring network address"

Honestly...what you have written doesn't make sense to me...it happens often, my brain is a refurb .

If a wireless network was set up...there's no need to plug in to a wired router.

Not sure who the "techguy" might be, but it seems that the priority in setting up any network...ought to be making sure all systems are properly connected to same.

I suggest that you run an inquiry through this person.

I can on here a few days ago having problems with my wireless, and a very helpful forum member solved my issue very quicky.

I now have another problem, my wireless is disconnected again. I am able to see it in the 'network' list, but when I try to connect it says 'acquiring network address' constantly and doesn't connect (apart from yesterday when it connected for about 3 minutes, then lost it again)

Any advice would be great, I'm on windows XP, and the laptop is a Toshiba Portege M300

Thank you everyone.

Hi, a pretty novice computer user here...so, we have a linksys wireless router, a desktop, and a work laptop that generally has no problems with the wireless connectivity. however, just bought an acer aspire one netbook for my 7-year old for Christmas, and it is hung on acquiring network address. i have looked a many pages over the last two days, and tried several of the suggestions, but nothing has worked. Any help out there for a desperate mom with a child anxious to use her netbook? thanks in advance.

Hi:Let's see this from the failing pc.:
From a Johnwill post on the Networking Forum
Try these simple tests.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

NOTE: For the items below surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

<computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

<default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

<dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

Hi, first of all you'll have to excuse my lack of computer expertise, but here goes.

I have a Windows XP system and I used to connect wirelessly to the internet no problem. Then we got a new router. Now my connection status is "acquiring network address" and I can never get on the internet.
(I'm currently connected using a laptop with Windows 7 and have no issues with that).

My signal strength is excellent and it has the right network name, etc. Anyone have any ideas? I was on tech support with the new router company and had no luck after an hour on the phone with them.

For the past week I have been able to connect to my home network, but have been stuck on "Acquiring Network Address." I have seen many possible problems and solutions for this problem but so far none that I have seen have worked for me. Everyone else who uses my network has been able to connect and use the internet fine, and I am able to use other networks. I have used the network for more than a year, and I do not know what has changed so that I can no longer acquire the IP address for the network. Any suggestions?

Computer has been running slower so I ran through the checklist. Ran RegCure Scan. Fixed Errors. Since then, I have been unable to access the internet. The computer which is wired to a DSL connection, is unable to acquire a network address. I am also unable to open RegCure again do to a 'Windows sockets initialization failed" error.

Help! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

A:Acquiring Network Address Error

Do you have any firewall programs running? Just to test, try disabling any and all firewall programs and see if you can now obtain an IP address.

If that does not work, let's check the local area connection. Assuming you have Win XP, click on "Start", then "Control Panel", and double click "Network Connections". Look for your Local Area Connection and see if you have any "!", "X", or "?" symbol on it. Try to right-click and make sure you cannot choose "enable". If you can, do that. If you cannot, choose "repair" and see what it says.

If that does not work, let us know if you are using a router or not, and if in the network connections you have any wireless icon.

I had to do a repair on my system and now when trying to log into the 'net it hangs on "Acquiring Network Address". The message also says that I am connected to my network.

During the repair install I got a message that afd.sys can not be found. The CD is the original and things used to work.

I did ipconfig from the command prompt and got back that the wireless media is disconnected. Device manager says the wireless adapter is working properly.

TIA for any help

Hey there!
I have a pc with windows xp pro sp2 installed on it.
Yesterday I had to reinstall windows. When it finished installing I installed the drivers and everything, but when I wanted to connect to a network, it said that it was "acquiring network address" but nothing really happens and I connect to the network. This happens with the Local Area connection and also with a wireless connection.
And yes, I checked the DHCP service and it's "started".
HELP!
Thanks in advance.

A:"acquiring network address" problem.

Welcome,
Have you updated the OS completely? Did the motherboard come with a CD of drivers and after installing them did you update them? I'm going to assume that you have had to reboot a few times during all of these processes. You might also want to reboot your router so that it flushes its cache of data on the old configuration.
Keep us posted

I am speaking on behalf of my partner.

She has a computer in her house, when the pc loads up, it takes around 20 minutes for the internet to work, on a stable connection. Before that, the wireless network connection will flicker on and off constantly, getting up to "acquiring network address", then "disconnected". This happens for 20 minutes approx.

I am decent at pcs and know there is no obvious reason to this, everything simple is fine.

She is using a quite old wireless adapter dongle, may this need to be replaced?

Many thanks

Hello,

Recently I got a Windows XP, and I upgraded to SP2. Few minutes after the upgrade, my internet connection said "Acquiring Network Address". I tried clicking "repair", but it just seems to hang on "renewing your IP address". I have no idea what to do. Because of this, that computer is unable to access the internet.

I'm using a D-Link Wireless USB if anybody is wondering.

Also, I'm not very good with computers, so step-by-step solutions would REALLY be appreciated.

I hope you guys can help me.

Hi guys,

I saw a similar post on the forum already, but my problem is a bit different. I have the Dell Wireless 1490 Dual WLAN Mini-card. I have never seen this happen before, but sometimes it shows "acquiring network address" on the wireless icon thing, but I can still use the internet. Other times it says connected but I can't use the internet. At school, I use ethernet most of the time, but when I use wireless, this does not happen. Even when I come home some weekends, the wireless is fine, but recently it started acting strangely and displaying the "acquiring network address" thing when I am already connected. I have the latest drivers for my Wireless card, so what else could I do to fix this problem?

Thanks,

A:Connected but stuck on acquiring network address

Do you have the latest wireless driver from your PC manufacturer's web site?

(from a JohnWill post)

IP addresses of 0.0.0.0 are normally caused by one of the following.

Diagnosis:
1. DHCP Service not running.
2. Duplicate IP address on the network.
3. Bad NIC card drivers.
4. Defective NIC hardware.

Resolution:
1. Check Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. The DHCP Client service should be Started and its Startup Type should be Automatic.
2. Turn off ALL of the computers and other network connected devices, reboot the router, then restart all the computers and other network devices.
3. Check for upgraded drivers and/or reload the Network drivers.
4. Replace the Network Interface Card.
