Windows 7: Wireless network does not have a valid IP configuration

I'm pretty far away, yes. I'll try to persuade her to install a second router or something. I'll try accessing the router, though I fear there's a password since she believes that everybody in the street is trying to steal her 'internet'. -.-

I'll try to access the router when I come home and I'll keep in touch.


EDIT: Does this 192.168.0.1 really work? I tried it right now and I get the message that my browser cannot connect with it.

Provided that you are on the same network as the router is on then yes it should work. A dedicated access point would be the best way to solve this, rather than just using another router.

Access points tend to cause less problems when added to a network. Secondary routers usually require more time to set up compared to an access point.

Same gateway as I'm using to access my router though she may be using a password to access it. The default password is usually Admin. http://192.168.0.1/

I tried it now and it basically worked. I am trying to change the mode to 11n only, but it says that the encryption will change from TKIP to AES. I shouldn't touch that, right?

Yes for N only to work properly you need to use AES encryption as it's made to work at 802.11n speeds. In fact most every driver made specifically for Windows 7 should be using AES encryption with WPA2 security. But remember with the N only setting that G clients won't be able to connect anymore.

Once you get the router set up correctly you should then go to the Network and Sharing center then to "Manage Wireless Networks" on the left and then edit the settings to reflect the changes you made in the router.

Let me know if it's working yet.

The weird thing is that right now it is working perfectly. I even have 4 lines instead of the usual 2 for 'signal strength' and there seems to be no problem. I don't think anyone changed any settings or installed any antennaes or anything. In fact it's been working non-stop for 2 days now... What causes WiFi networks and equipment to act like that? Why in the world does it work one day and not another?

Because of the fact that your neighbors also have wireless and they are hogging the available channels sometimes, they can also change channels anytime and cross into the one you are using. Yes the can also effect signal strength and can actually cut out the connection completely.

In these cases you can use a WIFI scanner like Xirrus to see what the best channel is. Wi-Fi Inspector | Xirrus

If you still want full wireless N speeds then you should change the encryption to AES witch is made to work with wireless N.
