Solved: Cannot 'acquire network address'...

Q: Solved: Cannot 'acquire network address'...

Hi everyone, my family recently updated (or so we thought) to Sky Broadband using our Netgear router, and it's been giving us some problems. My computer upstairs connects to this one through the wireless router, and suddenly it won't let me get past the 'acquiring network address' stage. The icon in the taskbar constantly flashes from red to green, and I can't access the internet at all. This downstairs one that's directly connected to the router works though, so I have no idea why mine won't. I'm running Windows XP. I'm definitely a beginner, so please don't get too technical!

Thanks in advance for any help,

Helen.

ISP: Sky Broadband
Router: Well, downstairs it's NETGEAR WG511v2 (My router is a USB one that connects to this one)
Connection Type: Wireless
Encryption Used: WPA
OS: XP Home Edition
Browser: Mozilla Firefox (but IE doesn't work either)

When I change the encryption to WEP or disable it, it doesn't work at all.

A: Solved: Cannot 'acquire network address'...

Uh, never mind. I disabled all my firewalls, changed the encryption to 'Disable', applied it, took out the usb router, restarted, plugged it back in, changed the connection back to WPA, entered the pass phrase (with caps lock on, despite it telling me to turn it off) and all is working fine. This is now from the upstairs/my computer.

Turns out this router USB thingy is called NETGEAR WG111v2, just in case that matters to anyone!

Greetings

I'm lost with this computer that I'm working on. It will not acquire a network address. I've moved the computer from the house it was in to mine and tried setting it on my network (which I know has no problem) either wireless or LAN it will not connect. I also notice that there is something called client services for netware which is limiting me from logging on and off the normal way. I have searched for the instructions for removing this service and It's not showing up as the instructions show. Any suggestions????

Hi there,
I am having trouble connecting to the internet from my laptop via a D-Link wireless ADSL router.

This is a new problem on a laptop that has been used on this wireless network many times - very strange?

When i click "repair" it seems to hang at the point of acquiring my IP address.
Any ideas?
Thanks

I have an HP pavilion mx 70 desktop and an hp laptop. The desktop is connected via ethernet to the router, and the laptop is wireless. The modem is separate. I have cable highspeed internet access. Up until about a week ago both computers were able to access the internet. All of a sudden, neither computer could get on the internet through the router. I have to run the ethernet cable directly to the modem, and then I can get on the internet.

I can't acquire a network address - it just gets stuck, and I get the same message, this connection has little or no connectivity.

The router was a linsys. I thought that was the problem, so I bought a new d-link router, but same issues - no internet.

D-link tech support walked me through assigning a static address and pinging, but no luck. I can't even get into the router by typing its address into the browser.

Device Manager doesn't indicate that there is any problem with the nic card, but I did uninstall it and then reboot.

I have turned off, reset, etc. both the modem and router.

I have also tried release and also tried somethin with winsock

I am just computer literate enough to function, and to get myself in trouble, but I would appreciate any help.

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to connect my work laptop to the internet. It's a DSL connection which goes thru a router, then thru a wireless router. The laptop isn't wireless so I'm using a LAN cable to connect the laptop to the wireless router. It's showing a connection with "Limited or no Connectivity".

Hello All,

Just to preface things, I have never had any training on repairing or modifying computers, but I've picked up some things over the years. I've had a computer in my home since 1986. I am pretty good at following instructions and figuring things out.

I have an older Dell Dimension 8300 with Windows XP Professional with SP3. I've had this computer for about 6 or so years. This computer had a Blue Screen error on shut down for years, but it was never a problem, it just caused me to have to power down manually. I finally decided to attack this problem via google searches on similar problems in forums like this. That machine is no longer my primary computer, so I figured I would attempt to fix it up. I know, this is not a smart idea since I'm not a pro. But I did it, and I actually did fix the Blue Screen problem, but in the process, I did something to disable my internet connection.

Now, my IP address is 0.0.0.0 and I have done everything as suggested in this similar thread:

http://forums.techguy.org/networking/397971-stuck-acquiring-network-address.html

as well as what was suggested by my ISP's tech support. Nothing will work, my computer is still stuck on "acquiring network address" and the IP is still 0.0.0.0. I thought it may have something to do with the ethernet drivers, but I uninstalled and reinstalled those and restarted, still nothing.

I would be more than happy to just reinstall XP and start fresh, but I cannot do tha... Read more

A:Computer cannot acquire network address, IP Address 0.0.0.0

Oh, and also, I am connected to a DSL modem using ethernet, and my other desktop computer works fine with the same modem (I just switch ethernet cables each time I switch computers). The problem is not with the modem or the cable, it is definitely related to what I did to fix the blue screen error.

I can't honestly remember every specific thing I did to fix that error, but some of it was identifying the unsigned drivers on my system and disabling some of them until the error went away.

Thanks!

I have a network with 3 computers using a Netgear router and a Netgear adapter on 2 computers. One of the PCs when booted up is not connecting. It tries to find the IP address but can't. I try to "repair" it and it again tries to acquire the network address, but can't. The only way to get it to connect is to go into Properties/Network Connections and check the box to have Windows do the configuration. What do I need to do to get it to connect automatically again?

My computer is stuck on accruing network address, here is the story

My computer became infected with Win AntiVirus Pro a while ago and I was finally able to remove it using spy-bot and ad-aware. (I mention this since it seems to be the last thing I was doing before the problem started) Problem is the next day I was unable to connect to the internet.
I tired to repair the connection, however as soon as I clicked repair I was immediately advised “windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: renewing your IP address. For assistance, contact the person the manages your network.”
I did contact my ISP and was unable to fix the problem after about 3 hours of troubleshooting. I tried running thorough the Ethernet port and a usb. I am convinced as is my ISP that it is a problem with the computer, not the service, as I can connect to the internet when I plug the modem into a different computer.
When I type in ipconfig /renew I get the message: An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection: The RPC server is unavailable.
I have a dell dimension dim 4500 with windows xp(2002). The modem is connected directly to the computer.
I feel stuck between a rock and hard place since My computer tells me it’s a ISP problem and my ISP tells me it’s a computer problem.
Can anyone help?
 

A:Cannot acquire network address

"The RPC server is unavailable."

Server? Sure it wasn't "service"? If it was service: Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services - the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service should be started and its Startup Type should be 'Automatic.'

A few days ago the internet randomly stopped working and remained stuck on 'acquiring network address', or something like that, before coming up with a 'limited or no connectivity' message. Apparently our Linksys router was the problem, since my husband's computer has normal internet access when wired directly to the modem. Recently we bought a new router, still a Linksys (though this one is model WRT54GS V7.2) which has the exact same problem -- the install software won't even run because it apparently can't detect a new gateway or router. We've tried installing the router software on my own computer following the same instructions from the install CD, but ended up with the exact same problem as on my husband's computer. We've tried restarting and refreshing the IP numerous times, though none have worked.
We also tried plugging in the router to the modem and a computer without running the installation software, and the computer recognizes the router enough to again search for the network address, though it never finds anything.
What could be the problem?

Both our computers run Windows XP SP2, and though the router we use is capable of wireless we connect all our computers to it through regular ethernet wires.

The other day my computer was connected to the internet via my wireless network with no problems. While I was messing around I lost connection. It has been 3 days since then and I cannot reconnect to my wireless network. My laptop works fine, as does my roommates desktop.

I am running windows XP and have been able to connect to the only non secure wireless network in my range, but with very low connectivity. The signal strength of said network is very low.

Hello thanks for taking the time to help. Just yesterday out of nowhere my computer was unable to connect to the internet.

I'm trying to get connected to Verizon DSL for the first time, I have a Dell Dimension running XP, I've gone through the install and can't get a connection. I have the icon in the task bar showing the two computers trying to connect, when I hold the mouse over it it says: "acquiring network address", but it never does. I was on the phone today with Verizon tech support, he tried everything he could think of: couldn't ping anything, tried setting manual ip addresses instead of automatic, tried connecting with USB instead of Ethernet, his final suggestion was that the nic is faulty, however this doesn't make sense to me since it didn't work through USB either. The computer can connect fine through my old dial up connection.
I tried the install with a second computer (Toshiba laptop) and it worked fine, so the problem is definitely something to do with the Dell. I don't have a screenshot or text file for ipconfig on the Dell, but I know that all of the addresses are 000.000.0.0 (or something like that).
Thanks in advance for any help.

I am working on a Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop for a friend. I upgraded his firmware to the lastest version from the Dell.com website. Now his 3Com 10/100 Mini PCI Ethernet card (built in to mboard) won't successfully acquire an ip address.

I have the laptop direct wired into my Linksys WRT54G router. Two other computers are successfully connected through the same router with no problems. I have included the Dell laptop into the correct workgroup name.

It successfully pings (127.0.0.1) but when I type "ipconfig" there is no ip address, no subnet mask, no default gateway.

If I type in "ipconfig /all" it shows a physical address, dhcp enabled and autoconfiguration enabled. No other info shows up.

I typed in "ipconfig /release" and it says it is already released.

When I type in "ipconfig /renew" it gives me an error message saying RPC server not available.

I have uninstalled the client and server from the NIC properties. I then deleted the NIC and rebooted twice. I still get the same results.

I upgraded the driver from the 3Com card with same results.

Any suggestions to correct this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I searched around the internet and have come up with nothing.

A few nights ago there was a real bad thunderstorm and afterwards my computer and xbox 360 were not connecting to the internet. I have a desktop that is connected to my house's LAN through a cable. After checking out a number of different things I have come to believe it is definatly the computer and Xbox which are suffering from some sort of problem. My mom's laptop (which I am on right now) has no problem connecting wirelessly or with a cable. I have moved my computer down to the office and plugged it in with a working cable and it will not connect.

The computer will say that a cable is unplugged, try to connect, will not be able to acquire a network address, then the icon will switch to a yellow warning sign and say there is little to no connectivity. I ran a loop to test the network card and it tested ok (4 returns). This is really stumping me. Any help is much appreciated.

Hey Guys

I have an issue connecting to the internet and after reviewing the forums I couldn't find a solution applicable to my situation so here goes.

I use a PC at work and we are in the process of moving so we disconnected our internet early. For a couple weeks I need internet connection at work and found our neighbor who is allowing me access to their service. They gave me their password but when I try and connect it constantly says acquiring network address. My smartphone has no issue being connected.

Here is as much information as I can gather

Dell PC Inspiron
Dell 1450 wireless adapter with correct driver installed
wireless zero configuration disabled (using Dell)
have released and renewed ip in command function

Any help would be appreciated

A:Unable to acquire network address

Sharing of internet access is prohibited by every provider that I know of. Please read and follow the rules when posting specifically the part about illegal activity. This thread is closed. If you can post a user agreement from the service provider allowing sharing of access, I will reopen this thread.

I recently re-installed windows xp and after I did it I have had trouble connecting to the internet.

What will happen is I will connect to my wireless router and it will start connecting fine, but then it wont be able to acquire the network address for some reason. It will start trying to acquire it but then not work, it is sooooo frustrating. My computer is an MSi wind notebook. I have been on countless forums looking for an answer but I cannot find one, so any help would be great . Also sometimes after a while it will say "Limited or no connectivity" and show a warnig type sign at the bottom of the screen.
Thank you, Leo.

I have a Fujitsu Pi1505 notebook running Windows XP that has an Intel 3945ABG built wireless chip. It has been working fine on my home network in the UK using WEP.
I recently took it to France and had connectivity problems with hotspots. It worked fine if it was an unprotected network, but if it was protected then I entered the key and it then spent ages trying to acquire the network address and finally gave up. The key was OK, because if I mistyped it then it complained.
When I got home the notebook connected straight back onto my home network. The strange thing is, I went around to a friends house where it had connected many times before and that failed as well. Any ideas?
I have downloaded the latest driver from the Fujitsu web site and it has not helped.

Hi, we have recently had to restore a laptop and now it will not connect to our wifi set up. the router is identified but sits on the acquiring network address routine with no further progress. in the device manager, PCI Serial Port and PCI Simple Communications Controller show compatibility errors - exclamation mark on yellow background. I tried to install SP3 but could not. any assistance at this stage would be helpful. I am not in front of the machine at the moment but can try any suggestions once I get home this evening.

I'm having problem with a computer at work. Yesterday, I moved ithe computer from one area of the office building to another and when I hooked it back up to the network, it kept giving me a message saying "aquiring network address" and then it said that it was unable to acquire the network address. It worked fine when it was hooked up in another office, but now since I moved it, it won't let me connect to the network. Please Help!
 

A:Unable to acquire network address

You are probably on a different subnet or domain. The only way to resolve this is to talk to your network admin and tell them that you have moved your desk.

Hello,

I am trying to connect to my home wireless network and my computer has found the network and will let me connect (after typing in the WEP key), but the status says 'Acquiring network address' and I can't access the internet.

I have the IP address for the network, but don't know how to add this into my computer.

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks!

if it hangs or shows limited connectivity ensure you are typing in the correct key, some routers will allow a passphrase for wep others want the key in hexadecimal format.

I have been piggybacking routers to 2 towers, my ps3 & a bluray player for well over a year with no problems then all of a sudden i get nothing from the 2nd router to the 2nd tower, ps3 or the bluray player. So i thought my router fried & i bought a new 1, but its doing the same thing with the new router trying to acquire network address unsuccessfully then saying that a cable is unplugged when its clearly not. But if i unplug the main ethernet cable from the 2nd router & plug it directly into the 2nd tower it connects just fine ...i dont understand what happened. help pls!!!

A:Inspiron E1505 cannot acquire network address :/

Have you tried factory resetting the router via the pin hole in the back and setting it up afresh.

Don't use any backed up configs.

EDIT When factory resetting a router, ensure you hold the button in for at least 15secs for it to properly reset.

I just set up a wireless network for my apartment and my two roomates are able to wirelessly connect to it but I am not. I am wired into the router now and when I try to wirelessly connect (without being plugged into the router of course) It gets stuck at "Acquiring Network Address". I am using windows XP on a dell inspiron laptop. I am pretty sure it is not my adapter as I tried a loopback test and it worked. The router is a basic Linksys Wireless G Router. I'm not sure what information to include so please tell me or point me to a similar thread to read.

Also: I read to uninstall and then reinstall my adapter but I am worried about doing this because im not sure how to reinstall it.

edit: I have also tried to Repair function from the Network Connections window.
 

A:Solved: Cannot "Acquire Network Address"

I'm no expert, but may be able to suggest some things.

Go to START / Control Panel / Network Connections / {RightClick} Wireless

Make sure TCP/IP is selected.

Then try and connect again. If no love, go to START / Run / {Type} cmd {enter} / and in the command line prompt type

ipconfig /all

and then post what is displayed back in these forums, I am sure someone wiwll know where to go from there.

I am working on a home laptop, running Windows XP Media Center Edition, Service Pack 3. It was infected with the Internet Security Essentials virus, plus who knows what else. The computer appears to be virus free now.

To get functioning again, I ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware software and the Avast free anti-virus software on a Windows boot-time scan. The Avast was the last function I ran, and I have since run a scan that came up clean. Everything on the computer appears to be working, except the internet.
I have tried both the wired and wireless internet connections, and they both are stuck on "Acquiring network address". Also, there are two computers connected directly to the internet, as well as another laptop working on a wireless connection, so my internet service is fine.

It seems that I knocked something out when finally cleaning out the virus/malware with the Avast, but I don't know how to fix it. I have tried three fixes so far. I reset the TCP/IP. The Windows XP network diagnostics said there was a "problem with the Winsock provider catalog", so I ran the reset it provided. I then also downloaded and ran "WinsockxpFix", which still did not solve the problem.

Can anyone out here help?

A:No Internet After Virus Removal (cannot acquire network address)

I'm having a similar situation. This weekend my ACER laptop running XP was infected with the XP homesecurity 2012 garbage. One of the first things that happened was that the web disconnected and when it tried to reconnect it would cycle around and think while acquiring the network address.

I was able to remove the virus (I'm pretty sure at least), but I still can't get back online. The network is fine, because my wife's computer is able to get online just fine.

I called up the tech support for my internet provider and he set up a new network for me, but I can't connect to that one either. It seems the virus monkeyed up my connection settings.

Please let me know what info you might need to help me with this.

I just assembled a Pentium 4 rig with ASUS mobo P4S800D-X and apparently I am having internet connection issue with wired connection. I am connecting through a router and all internet connection are test to work fine with my other computer. I was able to connect wirelessly using a USB internet adapter. It is just the wired connection that is not functioning. I have consulted with ASUS tech support and at first they told me to uninstall the network adapter and reinstall and still problem not solved. Then they said could be a TCP/IP stack issue so they told me to download the SP3 and still issue not resolved.

Does anyone have any issue similar to this that can help me figure out this weird problem?? Thanks.

Hi,

My network key was changed recently, and it took a few tries for my laptop to connect, but when it did it was fine. Then the key was changed again, and now my wireless is wonky. Sometimes it can't find the network, other times it will find it but then can't acquire a network address, and if it does manage to connect (sometimes it will as soon as I click 'Cancel' when it's taking forever to get the address) it starts slowing down and then speeding up again.

The settings have not changed on anything, other than the network key.

Hey all, I would like to apologize in advance if this problem has been posted numerous times before and is easily resolved. I've worked with computers for a major part of my life, but I've never been in-depth with them.

Alright, now straight to the point.

Specifications:
My laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN-Z16SN running on Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3.

Problem:
For internet access, I've always connected my computer via ethernet cable and never have I had any problems with it until yesterday at least. When I connect it the status shows "Limited or no connectivity", I've tried connecting repairing the connection but it returns with "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address". The IP address shows 0.0.0.0 and Subnet Mask 0.0.0.0. Under 'Services' in the administrative tools, I've checked that the DNS Client as well as the DHCP Client are both running. I've tried manually entering the IP Address, but to no avail, the connection status would show "Connected" but but I am unable to actually use the internet showing "Server not found" on my internet browsers, therefore I set it back to Auto. Under command prompt, whenever I type ipconfig /renew the following error would occur:

Recently my computer was infected with the Happili redirect virus. In an attempt to get rid of it, I downloaded TDSSKiller, changed the parameters, and did the scan. It found 2 threats, one of them serious and the other merely "suspicious". The suspicious one was named "Net32" or something similar. I foolishly thought that it wouldn't matter if I went ahead and deleted the Net32 file, so I deleted both threats. When I rebooted my computer, it kept saying that it was trying to connect to my network, but it never actually did; it just eternally keeps trying to connect. I even turned the computer off and on several times, but no luck. I'm afraid that by deleting the mildly suspicious file found by TDSSKiller, I somehow removed a component that the computer needs to connect to the network. Please help if possible! Thank you!

I had some problems with the network today and could not access this unit by typing in the IP in my browser.

HI there,

Okies....all of a sudden my main PC wont acquire an IP address from my wireless network. I suspected that it was the router and binned it, I bought a new and set it up. Its now running and secure and Ive got my laptop connected to it flawlessly.

I guess the problem isnt with the Router or network. So it must be the card or PC?

The belkin wireless utility sees the netwrok and thinks that it is connected with limited connectivity but the windows icon (with the little ball rolling side to side) says that it is acquiring network and goes on for hours until I stop it.

I have tried to repair it and force it to acquire but to avail.

I have had to reload windows XP on a Phillips LS1600 desktop PC. Previously the pc linked wirelessly to my home network although it was a bit difficult to get the MSI 802.11b/g wireless LAN to acquire an IP address. Since reloading the operating systems it has again been impossible to get the pc to link to the wireless network stating that the pc cannot acquire an ip address. I have tried a Netgear WG111T usb wireless adaptor and a Belkin 7050 usb wireless adaptor but both of these have the same problem. I have updated all drivers, disabled unwanted adaptors, disabled all firewalls, run winsockxpfix, rebooted the router but still connections cannot acquire an IP address. Two other pcs are connecting well.

Unplug the power plug to the Modem and the Router. Plug the power into just the Modem (unless you have a modem/router combo) When all the lights come up, plug in the power to the Router (unless combo of course)
Now Go to Start/Run and type inetcpl.cpl and press enter/Connections/LAN Settings. Make sure all the boxes are unchecked. Now go to Start/Run and type ncpa.cpl and press enter. Right click the Local Area connection/Properties scroll down to Internet Protocol (TCP-IP)/Properties. Make sure Obtain an IP Address and DNS Server Address Automatically are both checked. Now go to Start/Run and type CMD and press enter. IN the Command Prompt type ipconfig /release and press enter. the IP Address changes to 0.0.0.0 Now type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter. Now type ipconfig /renew. Now type ipconfig /all. You should have a new IP address try it again. If you still cannot connect please include the text output of your ipconfig /all in your next post

Hello,
I purchases a Sony Vaio Intel i3 2 weeks ago largely because its a Sony and because of the Wireless Display it offered using Netgear Push2TV 1000.
My first day the WiDi worked perfectly but then I got busy installing and updating the computer.
And now, two weeks later, when I attempted to connect to P2TV the TV screen just says "Could not obtain network address".
I updated the drivers. Nothing changed.
Reset the adapter. Nothing changed.
Enabled My Wifi/checked for Intel Wireless PAN DSCP server/checked firewall. Nothing happened.
I looked up other people having the same issue and there seems to be a lot and they all agree that there is no cure in sight. Apparently, BestBuy even had the balls to tell some of them to restore the computers to its original factory setting to resolve the issue which is pathetic.
Just want to check if anyone here figured this puzzle out yet.
Thank you.

I think the rootkit is gone for now, the network won't acquire the IP address. If I manually set the IP address, it will not register DNS properly, however the internal file sharing network works using this method, but no the internet access. I've tried running the Network Diagnostic tool, and NetShell utilities to reset the TCP/IP stack and Winsock, but same problem still exists. I even tried the repair install. I'm guessing the removal of the rootkit did something to the registry that prevents the IP from being assigned automatically. As you can see in the log, I've used many tools to try to fix it. I've seen a similar situation on this forum before..DDS (Ver_2011-08-26.01) - NTFSx86 Internet Explorer: 6.0.2900.2180Run by Administrator at 15:52:05 on 2011-10-29Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.2.1252.1.1033.18.1022.397 [GMT -4:00].AV: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2012 *Enabled/Updated* {17DDD097-36FF-435F-9E1B-52D74245D6BF}.============== Running Processes ===============.C:\PROGRA~1\AVG\AVG2012\avgrsx.exeC:\Program Files\AVG\AVG2012\avgcsrvx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcsC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k WudfServiceGroupsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exeC:\Program Files\Creative\Shared Files\CTAudSvc.exesvchost.exeC:\Program Files\AVG&#...

5 days ago, I ran Microsoft Security Essentials on my laptop to remove a suspected virus. Since then my computer has been running faster, but now I am unable to connect to the internet. Neither my wired nor wireless connection will connect. Both spin in circles saying "Acquiring IP Address." I have since connected two other devices to the connection, so I now that my issue is not laying with the router. Since this issue has started, I have been scouring the internet for solutions and haven't been able to find one. I have checked the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties and they are set to obtain automatically. Because of the things that I have seen on the blogs I have come across and what I am seeing on my computer, I am wondering if I have some form of malware attached to my system.

Hi,
Machine with Win7 Pro 32bit.
This peculiar problem from 4 days, when the machine is logged in, it takes very long time to acquire ip address (though its a static ip).
The Network icon at the task bar keeps searching (rotating) and meanwhile I cannot open any folders or applications.
It gets connected after a while approx 10-15 minutes.

I have reset the winsock. Tried stopping some unwanted services in msconfig, disabled the built-in firewall, uninstalled antivirus (security essentials).
No hopes...
Any workarounds....

Thanks,
Kiran

I ended up with Antivirus Soft. I used rkill and Malwarebytes in safe mode (administrator). After it removed several infections. I rebooted in normal mode.

Hello,
First let me say that I'm horrible with computers. I'm just very CPU ignorant.

That being said here's my problem:

My Dell inspiron mini will show my network and show that it has excellent signal strength. But then it also says limited or no connectivity.
It also gives me this:

network did not assign a network address to the computer

Don't know what to do. I've already tried this:

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock
reset catalog
Reboot machine

None of that worked. What is my next step to fixing my problem?

Hello, I have read a few similar posts and the resolutions but it doesn't appear to be working for me. Any help is appreciated. I apologize if I am leaving out any important info.

I'm running a Windows XP PC, wired to a Verizon FIOS modem/router, model MI424WR. I have a second computer connected via wire to this and a third computer connected wirelessly. As of 2 hours ago and for months, all 3 machines have worked fine.

My PC froze while playing a game and I reset it. This is not common but it has happened before without issue upon start up. However this time I received a limited/no connectivity message. When repair was attempted it didn't work because "the network did not assign a network address to the computer". The 2nd and 3rd PC work fine though.

Back on my first PC, when I view the details there is a physical address, IP address, and subnet mask, BUT there is no Default Gateway, DNS Server, or WINS Server.

I have tried the other suggestions I read about RESET TCP/IP stack and RESET WINSOCK entries then restarting my machine but neither of these worked.

Under device manager my NVIDEA nForce networking adapter says it is working properly and there isn't any red X or yellow indicators.

The only weird thing I saw which i have not seen discussed here is when I run IPCONFIG /ALL: It says IP Routing enabled: NO and WINS Proxy enabled: NO.

I have a slightly older laptop Inspiron 1150 that I can't connect to the Internet.

Both wirelessly (on my home network) with a Linksys-G notebook adapter and hard-wired with ethernet cable, I get the same message:

"acquiring network address". It doesn't.

It sees the wireless router.

I ran IP config and everything is blank:

Connection-specific DNS suffix.:
IP Adress..... 0.0.0.0
Subnet Mask.... 0.0.0.0
Default Gateway....:

If there is anything I'll need to download, such as a driver, I have to introduce it via a flashdrive connected to the USB port since I have no Internet access on the laptop.

The fellow who gave me the laptop said he had this problem after he updated Windows XP a couple of years ago. He said that previously, he had access by cable but not by Wireless. I don't know what else he might have done.

My desktop computer works fine via the cable modem but I have no wireless (other than the Inspiron) to test that part of the system.

I have low to moderate computer skills so please be as specific as you can with your responses. THANKS !!
 

A:Solved: Acquiring Network Address

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

IP Addresses all O&#8217;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&#8217;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.

Hello,

I have a cable modem running to a router that then runs to another router in the house. Two days ago while on the internet it said internet page cannot be displayed and ever since it has always said aquiring network address when I try to connect and if I try to repair it said cannot renew ip address. When I do ipconfig it does not have a ip address or subnet mask. I have since disconnected one of the routers to just make it one router, to no avail. I can hook my computer up directly to the modem to get internet access as I am doing now. Any help would be appreciated. I also have tried several routers, thinking it may be the router but it doesn't seem like that. Something I find odd, might not be, is the ethernet light flickers on the modem and the port lights on the router do the same.

Thanks,

We have dsl internet. The dsl comes from the phone jack into the cable modem, then from the modem to a wireless router. I know the net and router/modem are all workign because I'm on my laptop right now.

We've had problems with the network adapter in our old desktop once in a while. It would stop working so I'd unplug it, plug it back in, and it'd work fine. The net on the desktop wasn't working the other day, but I know we still had a signal because it was fine on my laptop. The red light was on the back of the network adapter so I knew something was wrong with it. I fiddled around with it for an hour or so and could not get the red light to go away so I figured the card was shot. We got a new pci network adapter form radio shack and popped it in. The yellow light for "activity" was on, but the green gigabit light was not lit up. The computer recognized the adapter and installed the drivers so I don't think there's a problem with the pci slot. I know it's not the ethernet line coming from the router because I also tried straight from the cable modem to the desktop.

When I right click on the net connection it shows almost no activity, although it says it's connected. When I look in the properties the the ip addy and everything is blank. I have no clue what's going on, but for some reason I don't think this is hardware related.

2 days ago I was infected by the horrible Conficker virus that is going around. I decided to go onto the Microsoft website and follow their instructions on how to manually uninstall it. I went into my system registry and deleted the files that were not on the list Microsoft gave. After that point I was confused so I stopped. What I did seemed to have disabled the virus as I could install automatic updates. However when I turned my computer on later that night I was unable to connect to the internet as all my computer would do is "Acquiring Network Address".

I searched around on google and followed various instructions that were given to people who are in the same boat as I am. So far I have:

Re-entered my wep key
Done 2 things involving start / run / cmd (I'm sorry that's all I know about what I did)
Put in a manual ip (this seemed to have worked as my computer said it was connected but in actual fact it was not)

I have one wireless device and four desktops all running on a router. All units are set to recieve automatic ip address . There seems to be some trouble however. There are usually only two units running at a time ( desktop and a laptop) The problem is that every now and then i lose the connection and while checking in the error log I seen that there was an ip conflict between the two which is only resolved by rebooting the router.

Anyone ever seen this before and any suggestions as to what can be done?

Hi its me again..... I have set up the ecryption for the wireless router and all was going great. The lap top worked great. Now when I try to connect to my network it says I cant aquire an ip address What have I done???
 

A:Solved: cant aquire network ip address

I have also done this:You want and need to encrypt your wireless signal. Login to your router via your browser, go to the wireless section and enable WPA (or WPA2 if supported by router and laptop) encryption. Use a passphrase of 20+ letters and numbers. You will then need to give the same passphrase the next time you connect the laptop.
It was working .Do I have to make any changes to the laptop. I clicked repair to renew the ip address and it said it couldnt .

My computer has recently started saying "acquiring network address" and has not been able to connect to the internet. 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. 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 (not wireless).

DHCP Client will not start from services menu and neither will TCP/IP all other networking services appear to be started and working.

DHCP dependencies are:

AFD Networking Support Environment
TCP/IP Protocol
IPSEC driver
TCP/IP dependencies are:
AFD

Since the TCP/IP's only dependency is AFD I suspect it has been deleted or corrupted. How do I go about fixing that?

Hi, I have a canon sd300 powershot digital camera.
Until recently it was working fine except that now when I hook it up to the computer to acquire the photos that we have taken, nothing happens. Actually the computer eventually freezes and it when I hit ctr,alt,delete it says msgsrv32 not responding.

I think the computer has been saying that for awhile but we were still able to download photos.

I have windows 98.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kathie

For 2 years, My XP computer has had no problems picking up 10-20 wireless connections in my neighborhood,some i could connect to,some i could not because they were secured.

i decided to go straight , and purchase DSL.

i bought a new computer(vista) and got a westell 327 DSL modem,which is also a wireless router. The new computer is working fine, i called Verizon to set up the new computer's dsl wireless network,that worked out fine.

My old computer,the one i spoke about opening this thread, that computer immediately picked up the DSL signal from my new computer in the other room.. The signal was excellent and the name of the network WAS ON THE LIST of the dozen other wireless connections i could connect to. Problem is when i went to connect to my own DSL network, i got this error message:

"Limited or no connectivity
You might not be able to access the internet or some network resource. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer."

I typed in the correct password,the little icon in the corner of my computer said both computers were connected, and with an excellent signal strength. Reiterating: i could still connect and go online with the other avaiable networks running the computer,but not my own.

Can someone help me with connections to our wireless network? We have a desktop and laptop already connected to a WPA-PSK network. I have another laptop and desktop that were Christmas presents for family members. The two new computers have green lights showing their wireless adapters are on and working. They try to connect; I input the encryption password; and the little WLAN icon and the Wireless Connection icons both turn green and start communicating. Unfortunately, the status continues to show "Acquiring network address." If I go to details, it is searching through channels and then trying to connect...until the WLAN goes red and the Wireless Connection icon is covered with a red X.

If I go in and manually set the IP Address, etc., it will show the computer is connected to the network, but when I try to get online, the page is not available offline.

Any help?

I have a D-Link wireless router with two wired desktop computers and one wireless laptop. I have had the desktops and the router for years and never had any problems. The laptop was a Christmas gift. I have been using both desktops and the laptop for a couple of weeks now and it's been going great until today. One of my desktops has no internet connection and displays the following message:

"There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network."

No other computers are having this issue. I have "Network Magic" on the other desktop and it is showing the second desktop twice and both have the same IP address. I have tried to change the IP address on the broken computer but every time I try it I get the following message:

"Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed:Renewing your IP Address"

Can anyone help me fix this problem? I'm not a computer wiz so simple words please.

Thank you in advance.
 

A:Solved: There is an IP address conflict with another sysytem on the network

If you have any static IP addresses on your network make sure they are not conflicting with any Dhcp assigned addresses.

If your wireless network is not secured enable encryption, preferably WPA(2)-PSK.

If you are using WEP change the key or use WPA(2)-PSK instead.

If none of the above helps unplug the router and shut down all computers. Then plug in the router; then boot the computers.

If still a problem please show for all Windows computers ...

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

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

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

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
