"Doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

Well Hello

Name is Brian and I am having some technical difficulties with my internet (Wireless)

I am Running Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

When i run the "Troubleshoot" I receive the following message. "Wireless Network Connection 2" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.

I cannot figure it out, and I have been on a few forums trying to troubleshoot it myself, but no luck so far. Can someone please help me? Been at this for 5 hours now.

Thank you!

Setup is modem-router-computer.

It's a Linksys Compact Wireless G.

How do I tell if it is static or dynamic?

Start - All programs - Accessories - Right click on command prompt and select Run as admin.
Once you get the black window, type,

ipconfig /all

Hit enter.

Provide us the screenshot of the details listed.

Hw is your computer connected to your router?? wired or wireless??

Its wireless rite?? If yes, try connecting using a cable and let us knw the results.

I see.. It's kind of a hassle to get it wired (The routers in a hard area to get to, and the desktop is all setup on a desk)

Is it possible to do this without connecting it so it's wired?

The problem is that you aren't showing any default gateway in your Ip config. Depending on the router this will usually be 192.168.X.X either 0.1 or 1.1. This number will be different depending on the router being used.

Usually just resetting the router will fix this type of problem or you can go to network connection IPv4 properties and manually type in the default gateway. You may also need to set up your wireless security on the routers set up page. I have no idea which router you are using so that is about as much as I can tell you for now.

Solved guys! Thanks a lot for all the help.

All I did was go to the router (Linksys WRT54G) And reset it. Small button on the back and held it down for 30 Seconds) Went into the settings of the router (Thank you Chev65) and reset my WEP.

Again thank you everyone.

EDIT!: Ok ran into another problem... I restarted the computer and when it restarted the connection had the yellow Triangle again..So i went back to the router and reset it again and it works fine..

Is there something I need to do so that whenever my computer restarts I don't have to go to the router every time?
