Windows 7: Can't connect to internet using wired connection

Can't connect to internet using wired connection

This is my first post so hi!

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and it's been working fine for a few days, but since yesterday I can only use the internet when i connect using wireless. My other PC and xbox are not having any trouble (they are wired). The network is showing as unidentified and when I diagnose I get the message "Local Area Connection doesn't have valid IP configuration".

Can anyone help with this? I really hate using wireless.

Have you tried a System Restore to a point before the troubles?

Perhaps try these at command prompts.

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns

A system restore is actually very easy. See this tutorial: System Restore

I don't think I should do a system restore since the earliest it goes back is the 23rd and im going to have to re install so many programs
