"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid ip configuration

sometimes my Internet doesnt work. When I check for errors it says "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid ip configuration. When I restart my computer sometimes it works but sometimes it doesnt. I am not using a router, coz I live in hostel and they provide me the internet, I just hav to connect the LAN cable to my laptop. And when Im having this problem the internet connection is named "unidentified network". Please help me to sort this thing out (Im not a computer expert so if u need any details or anything abt the computer please state how to find it)

Seems like a problem with the router or internet connection in the hostel. You should contact them about the problem.

Try to right click on your network icon in the right hand corner of your desktop. Choose "troubleshoot problems" and see what that gives you.
