xp laptop cannot 'acquire network addresses'

Q: xp laptop cannot 'acquire network addresses'

Hello,
Quite recently my laptop's been unable to hook up to the internet
I can get it connected to my modem (wirelessly and through an ethernet cable) but it's unable to acquire a network address, no matter how many times I repair the connection or restart my laptop
I know the problem's not with the modem because I can connect to the internet on my sister's laptop (which I'm on now)

I've never had this problem before with my laptop, I'm quite new to this internet troubleshooting thing, can some help?

IGNORE IGNORE.... fixed it thanks anyway
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'm having issues connecting to a secure wireless network. Network key is definitely correct. I'm running Windows XP...and using a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. Things are set to acquire address automatically. When I try to connect though, I get stuck on "acquiring network address"

I've never had issues connecting to any other wireless network before, and am fairly confident this is not a hardware issue.

I'm really not technical...so I don't even know where to start wrt troubleshooting...or what other info to provide here.

Any help would be appreciated!

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!

Hi

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.

my network wont share its internet connection correctly. i have the DHCP enabled and the clients cant connect. the connection is shared on the server and the clients cant connect. occasionally when im screwing around with it, i can get the clients to the "acquiring network address" step and they time out. why are they trying to acquire a new network address? if the connection is shared it should assign them something like 192.168.x.x right? the network was fully functional once upon a time and it stopped awhile before service pack 2 even came out. i can share/view files from all the clients and the server and visa versa but no internet function. please help me understand why the IPs wont assign right. thanks in advance for any help provided

I bring my laptop to work every day. I have no problem automatically logging onto the network and using the internet and the wireless printer at work. However, when I come home it will give me a strong signal of my wireless network BUT my internet connection is stuck on "acquiring network address" and always fails to log me on. I try repairing my network connection and that doesn't work either. In order to connect to the internet I have to go to the wireless router and modem and unplug everything, wait a minute, and plug everything back in before it finally connects me to the internet. I recently added a network key (in order to secure my network). I was also messing around with the windows firewall and I must have changed one of my settings either there or on my router because ever since then I have not been able to automatically connect here at home AND it my laptop doesn't see my wireless printer either. This is really frustrating me. I don't want to have to go through the trouble of disconnecting my router every day in order to use the internet at home. PLEASE HELP! I use Linksys wrk54g and have windows XP, and IE v.74G WRK54GWRK54G

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.

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.'

Hello.

I just reinstalled Windows XP Home Edition on my laptop. I plugged the laptop to my router via ethernet and did all the necessary updates.

The problem is, I cannot connect to the router wirelessly. An IP address cannot be acquired, I think.

The ethernet connection is fine, and also other computers can connect wirelessly without an issue. I searched around this site and google, but I can't figure what to do.

Thank you in advance for your time!

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. When connecting to my network it seems to get stuck on the acquiring network address phase, while signal strength and that is very good.

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.

It's stuck on "Renewing IP Address/Acquiring Netwrok Address" and SOMETIMES will go to limited or no connectivity. Repairing the connects yields the same results. I went into a cmd, but when I type 'ipconfig' it looks like this:

'ipconfig' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

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 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?

A:cannot acquire a network address

If you right click on the connection and choose Repair, are you able to get a network address?

Sometimes a repair is required even though you are choosing the network directly.

Try the repair and let me know if that works for you.

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.

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.

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

we have a company that has two office locations. they use a vpn to connect the networks. office 'A' uses for addressing computers 10.0.0.xxx and office 'B' uses 10.0.1.xxx. my question is, does office 'B' have to use it's current addresses or can they all use 10.0.0.xxx. it seems that it would be easier for me to set everyone up on one post office of microsoft messaging if everyone used the same address. i know i cannot have two computers with the same address so i would reserve 200 and above for office 'B'. can this be done and/or what is the reason for having the different addresses at each location?

A:vpn network addresses

Without knowing what the origicanl requirements were, it is difficult to say why the different offices were set up with different IP schemes.

As far as VPN, when you make a VPN connection, the IP scheme of the remote LAN does not have to match the IP scheme of the local computer. In this case, it might actually be easier just to leave things as they are.

Have you tested the messaging to see how it works?

Hi guys, im new here and not much of a network guy. My desktop is connected to my dlink router, and my laptop is connected wireless via router. Both pc's run vista 64.

From what i was told every device should have a different ip address. But my pc and router seem to have the same.


So far my "obtain ip address automatically" is checked. Everything seems to work fine, But when i try to change my pc's ip address to lets say 192.168.0.X, my internet stops working.

If I change the ip address of the router to 192.168.0.X, my default gateway changes to the same address. Im assuming thats normal.

Here is a screen of my network map if anything seems to be out of the ordinary


sry for the newb questions guys, Im seriously considering a networking for dummies book lol....i really am no jokes

A:network addresses

Hello kymira,

The details you provide appear to show a perfectly normal working system

Your Router is set to 192.168.0.1 this is also the gateway so appears anywhere that the gateway address is presented and will change in all places it's shown.

The ipconfig shot you show gives the device ip of 192.168.0.100 which is different from 192.168.0.1

if you run the ipconfig on your other system it will show a different number in the range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254 ( this range is set up in the router)

if you wish to manually set the ip on your computer you need to exclude this number from the range automatically assigned by your router. you also need to set the subnet mask and the default gateway manually to suit the setup you require

You will need to read the manual for your router to discover how to do this but is probably in the advanced lan settings.

As your system is working I would advise that you leave it on automatic unless you have a technical reason to change this

Your routers configuration page should show you what devices are connected and what IP address has been given to them

I am assuming that you are connected directly to a modem (not using a router). Also assuming that you obtain IP automatically, but even if you use static the following is valid.

To see some examples of network addresses, go into a Command Window
(Start - Run - cmd - OK)
and type
ipconfig /all

You will see an IP address (the network address that your ISP assigned to your computer),
Mask (see below)
Gateway (network address of first hop in path your computer needs to take to get somewhere),
Dhcp server (network address of the device that assigned your IP),
DNS (network address of Domain Name Server that translates internet names into network addresses).

An IP address is 4 fields of 8 bits each, with each field represented by a digital number 0 - 255.

To determine subnet you look at the mask. It is same layout as IP; and it (that's the logical or boolean 'and') to each of two IP addresses; if you get the same result, the IPs are in the same subnet. Easier to understand a subnet is just look at the mask and realize that everywhere there is a binary 1 the IP addresses have to match and anywhere there is a zero the IPs can differ.

There are several ranges of private IP addresses, including 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255. This is a range that you might use for your task.

For example, assign each computer a mask of 255.255.255.0, and an IP address of 10.0.0.x, where x ranges from 1 through 254 (the lowest and highest addresses in a subnet have special uses).

I think someone might be spoofing their MAC address(es) and getting inside my network. The spoofed addresses are from Huawei. Is there a known vulnerability with Huawei devices that I do not know of?

My router is a Belkin N600DB Wireless Router with a very generous options for security. The thing is, I do have a couple Huawei devices, and their MAC addresses are already accounted for. However, whenever I check who's connected to my home network, I sometimes see a stray Huawei MAC address, sometimes two of them -- but so far, I've recorded 3 (although I've never seen all 3 of them show as connected).

These are the MAC addresses that no one in this house owns:
34:CD:BE:54:0E:2A
34:CD:BE:54:0E:2B
34:CD:BE:54:0E:2C

My Huawei devices:
1. A Huawei WiFi Repeater: Model WS320
2. A Huawei mini-tablet from my ISP: Model S7-961wd

I have already checked over and over and over again, but the above-listed MAC addresses just don't belong to anyone in this house. My Huawei repeater follows the same pattern of the listed MAC addresses: 34:CD:BE:54:0E:xx except the last two characters are both numbers in my device, not a combination of one number and one letter like the ones listed. My Huawei mini-tablet has a completely different MAC address: F8:01:13:xx:xx:xx. I just find it odd that those addresses would be 2A, 2B, 2C, consecutively.

So, I'm thinking, if there's a vulnerability that I'm not aware of, maybe it's the WiFi repeater? Is this possible... Read more

Hey,

We have the following network configuration: internet-modem-switch-computers. Our isp only allows 15 computers of which we use 9, but apparently there is one computer in the network that is claiming multiple places on the modem and leaving none for the others.

If we look at the modem mac table we see that there is one mac address always returning, it looks like **.**:80:50:2C:B5 only the first 4 hexes are different.

We know the computer which is probably causing this (cause his mac address has the same last 8 hexes) but we can not find anything on that computer that is causing it, reinstalling nic, ...

Is there anyone with a similar problem our anyone who knows what can be causing this?

I have a dual port Intel 82576 Gigabit Dual Port Network adaptor.
Port #1 mac address = 00:25:90:A6:18:0E  - IP address 10.1.2.42 / NM 255.255.255.0 / GW 10.1.2.1 
Port #2 mac address = 00:25:90:A6:18:0F (This is not connected to anything - cable unplugged - disabled)
So the machine is using a STATIC IP address, and hard coded DNS 
Something on my network is making DHCP requests, and I have traced it back to this machine by process of elimination, (reduced network to just router, switch, this PC) how ever the DHCP requests are coming from a mac address not associated with this machine
00:25:90:A6:16:41.  I have confirmed using wireshark that it is defiantly this machine that is making the DHCP requests from that MAC address.   As you can see the 'strange'mac address is seriously close to that of the 'declared'mac addresses.
Just to compound things I have 16 identical Windows 7 machines, ALL doing the same thing, making DHCP requests from odd mac addresses that are not the mac addresses of either network interface.

Hi. this is my first post. I use my Sony Vaio w/Verizon wireless connection many hours every day. There is one other computer and an HP printer on my network for which I am the host. I have tried to correct this by "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew" but am still getting the message. I use Windows 7 Professional, and this error slows both computers down. Will appreciate any help. thanks - ruthearlene

A:computer says duplicate ip addresses are on network.

This is most commonly caused by one of the computer (or printer) being set to a static ip address.  You can check the status - by typing 'view network' in the start button search box - and selecting 'view network connections' under the control panel
 
you should see a couple connections - something along the lines of 'wireless connection' (if the other computer is wired it would be wired connection) - right click on that and select properties - scroll down the list until you see 'internet protocol version 4' and double click on that. - These should be set to Obtain Ip Automatically - If not write down the numbers (all of them) and change settings to Obtain Automatically.  See what happens.  If you completely lose internet connection even after a restart go back and put numbers back in.
 
you probably don't have to check the printer but if you do almost every printer menu is different I would want manufacturer and model if I try and lead you through that.
 
This can also be caused by a router going bad - how old is your current router?

Hey there. I am on a network, and recently there have been limitations to my IP address and mac address, of my network card. The limitations consist of disabling my network card and IP from receiving internet access after particular times during the day.

What I want to know is...

1) Am I able to change the Mac Address on my network card?

2) Is there any other way that I can change my IP address? The network administrator has set me up with a static IP so no matter what my IP address cannot change. I'm wondering if a certain procedure or program can alter my IP, so the admin won't have control over my internet access...

Please forgive me. I rarely have problems with networks, however this limit has just came into affect for the past week. And I want to know if I am able to bypass the limits if I can change my mac address of my network card (ethernet landline - not wireless), and/or change my IP Address

Yes, you can do all that. Whether this would actually give you any internet access is another matter.

No, I personally am not going to tell you how to get around network security. I'm sure the admin had a good reason to put these restrictions in place and if you have a problem with that, you can take the matter up to him personally.

Here's the scenario:

2 networked computers (hardwired/Netgear Web Safe Router RP614 v2):
eMachine running XP Home
Compaq running XP Pro
cable modem

The really weird thing is that when I checked the ip addresses, they were reversed from what they used to be. (DNS, gateway, and subnet mask do match btw). I know this is true because I wrote it down last time I checked. Then I pinged, with and without firewalls enabled.

Compaq ip address is currently xxx.xxx.0.3 (used to be 0.2)
eMachine ip address is currently xxx.xxx.0.2 (used to be 0.3)

When I pinged from eMachine (0.2) to Compaq by name (ping Compaq) , the next line said
"pinging Compaq (xxx.xxx.0.2)"; then
Reply from xxx.xxx.0.2 - and everything went through fine.

When I pinged from eMachine (0.2) to Compaq by ip address (ping xxx.xxx.0.3) it timed out and nothing went through.

Do you see what's not right? Somehow the numbers are mixed up.

When I pinged eMachine from Compaq by ip address (ping xxx.xxx.0.2) and by name (ping eMachine) it timed out with no replies.

I hope I can bend your ear for a minute. I have an interesting question. Actually, maybe more than one. I have a question regarding reserved network blocks of IP addresses. The company I am currently with has a few Internet IP addresses that it uses. A lot of companies do. My question is this: if a company leases or buys a range of IP addresses and doesn't use them, can't anyone with a LAN (home of office) use any one of those IP addresses on one of their machines which would basically put it out on web? I know they wouldn't be able to use it as a web server, ftp server, etc. as they would have to give that IP address to their ISP for routing purposes (right?), but couldn't someone secretly, in a sense, borrow an IP address for a time? If they could, how would it show up if it was figured out and they wanted to find out who was actually using it? I ask for security purposes, as I want to become a network security specialist and I just thought of this possible problem. Most likely it's not a possible problem, as I am new to all of this security stuff. Nevertheless, I am curious as to how this is avoided.

Let me give you an example. I have DSL at home. I have a hard coded IP address (so I have my own IP address that is not dynamically assigned).

A:Question about Internet IP Addresses/Network blocks....

Good question...lemme see....The short answer is no. When you log on from home via dialup or DSL/Cable, the ISP is assigning an address to that connection. If you already have an address on the machine they will smack into each other and you'll have problems getting a socket.
IPs are owned by the ISP and regulated by InterNic. If you have a T1 for example, you are assigned an amount off address usually from 6 to a full Class C. The address of your router, usually .1, is in the host table of the ISP DNS so your net can be found. Any calls to your Domain or IP range pass through this DNS and on to your router and from there servers and workstations. The router is the default gateway. This method of lookups is the same for all ISPs regardless of the platform (dialup, T1 etc). An internet connection is a direct pipe from you to an ISP with the ISP controlling addressing and DNS lookups. Trying to spoof an IP is very difficult to do. At some point along the line your address has to resolved to your machine, if it is an address foreign to the ISP problems happen.
All that said, I didnt say it cant be done, but it is illegal and not nice.

We are experiencing a strange issue here. Two of our computers died in one of our location and when we replaced those two computers with the exact same static ip, both of them can not connects to our network. For example, pc1 was replaced with the same ip
of 192.168.1.100 and pc2 was replaced with another pc but same original ip address of 192.168.1.101. Both of them cannot connect to our network. However, if we change the ip to a different address to 192.168.1.105 and 192.168.1.106 respectively, they work
just fine. We changed many dead computers in this location before and reused the same ip address without any issue. not sure why it is happening now. Could it be the firewall (sonicwall) or router that is causing this? Thanks.

G'day,

I have a home network comprising of:

1 x desktop
3 x laptop
1 x network printer

During bootup, these devices are assigned dynamic IP addresses, typically 192.168.1.x, where x is typically between 1 and 7.

I have a network printer, which has some functionality to scan and save documents to a shared folder on any of these devices, as shown below:

Referring to the image above, the problem I have is that the computer called COLIN-PC is assigned a dynamic IP address when it boots. For example, last night it was 192.168.1.4 and the scan functionality worked perfectly as expected, since I set it up for that IP. This evening, its IP address is 192.168.1.7, and as a consequence the scan doesn't work until I change the IP address in the panel in the image shown above. I want to avoid doing this each time.

What is the easiest method for me to assign fixed IP addresses to all the devices in my network? Do you need any more information from me to help solve this?

Thanks,
Golden

A:Assigning fixed IP addresses to devices in home network

Golden, Most routers have the capability of reserving IP's for the devices on the network.

You can also go into networks and your adapter can be set to a static IP which should be fine.

But, I find that the router is the easiest way to reserve IP's.

A:Binding two ip addresses to one Network Interface card in different Subnets

Yes you can bind more than one IP to a network interface. To do so, open the properties page for TCP/IP for your NIC. Then click the advanced button which will bring up another GUI. You should see at the top of the new window a box where your current IP is listed along with the ability to add, edit, and delete any IPs. Just click add and punch in the additional IP.

The problem you are going to have is if the new IP is on a different subnet (which would be case in most instances) is required to be routed outside of that local LAN segment you'll need to configure another router to be on that local LAN segment or you'll need to have a router which supports multiple subnets for routing. In addition, you'll have to add static routes to each configured workstation if you need to have traffic routed through the gateway for the new subnet. You can use multiple default gateway configurations on the Windows boxes. Microsoft says Windows will only use additional default gateways in a failover mode. But adding multiple default gateways to any endpoint be it workstation or server is never recommended unless you really know what you are doing.

I tried removing his new wireless mouse and keyboard to be sure that was not a problem, and still no success.

So finally out of desperation we restored the computer and formatted it with windows xp pro again, everything is fresh we installed the wireless adapter and tried to connect, as you guessed it no cigar. I am currently connected to his neighbors internet (win7 x64 premium) and have no issues whatsoever, the signal isn't perfect but definitely adequate. What is going on?

A:Cannot acquire IP address

Answer Match 41.16%

My computer cannot acquire an I.P. address, no matter what network i connect to. Its running Windows XP SP2 and Ubuntu dual boot, and I can't connect to a wireless network in either.

I used to be connected to a wireless network which only accepted my MAC Address and I had no problems with that. I moved house and haven't had an internet connection since I moved apart from an ethernet cable connected to another computer. I tried to plug this ethernet into my computer, but the IP couldn't be acquired. I tried to use my phone as a modem, and got the same problem. I also brought my computer to another house to try connect it to their wireless and again received the same problem. If I set the I.P. to one in the range manually, it says its connected, but no websites will load. I have tried every solution I found online and none worked.
PLEASE HELP.

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.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

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.
I am thinking of connecting using a wired connection and update XP (if it will let me). Please advise.
 

A:Cannot acquire IP address

Try running cmd and doing
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

I can't seem to connect to the internet. I called the comcast tech guy and he told me that the problem is that my computer can't acquire an ip adress. I'm connecting my laptop to the internet with the same modem that I use for the computer so obviously the problem is with the computer. The operating system is Windows XP. This all started after I got a malware program on my computer. I rebooted in safe mode and ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it got rid of the malware, but since than my computer freezes for 5 minutes on the start up screen every time I reboot and its not connecting to the internet. I can deal with the 5 minute freeze for now, but I really need to connect it to the internet. Anyone have any ideas?
 

A:Can't acquire an IP adress

Give us as much of this info as you can.
Iconfig /all will give us the pc's view of it's network.
Pings will give us some idea as to the connectivity of your 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 the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address> For addresses,follow instructions below&#8230;.

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 206.190.60.37

PING www.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. IPV4 for Vista

<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.

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

I have a Belkin wireless router attached to my computer. It was set up as an access point, with an IP address of 192.168.0.254. I had some problems with the network today and could not access this unit by typing in the IP in my browser. I feel certain that is the IP address I put in it when setting it up, as I have a record I kept of all the settings. Is there a way to retrieve the IP address to verify that is what it is set to?
 

A:How to acquire IP address?

That it wasen't 192.168.1.254 not 0.254 as you posted?

just a thought,

About a week ago we had a virus on this computer. Ran malware and AVG and the computer worked fine. A few days after the virus was removed I could not get online or print to the printer that was hosted on this computer. It is a wired connection. Under network connection, it says "acquiring adress" but it never aqcuires one. I typed in the IP address manually and that allows me to get online but I cant see the other computers on the network and they cant see this computer. Any thoughts?

A:unable to acquire ip address

We cannot help you with malware removal here due to forum rules. Please click on the link for Virus/Malware Help in my signature and do as many of those steps as you can and skip those you can't and post there for more help. Once the security experts give you a clean bill of health;
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

My old computer has been somewhat rendered unusable and I am in the process of getting a whole new pc.

I usually shop at PC Specialist for all my PC needs but I have encountered a small problem.

PC specialist no longer sells the ultimate edition of any of the Windows OSs; and I am in need of a windows seven ultimate os.

I took a search on ebay and amazon and I have concluded there are a lot of shady sales for this product.

I was wondering if there was a legit way to buy a retail version of windows seven ultimate?

(Side note, my last licence was an oem, so it can't be used on my new pc)
