Windows 7: Router does not have a valid IP configuration

Sorry about the delayed response, I work weekends.
"DHCP-client", "DNS server" and "Network Store Interface Service" are running. The first two are set to automatic and Network Store Interface Service is manual.

I downloaded and updated to the latest drivers. I ran the diagnostic that the came with the ethernet network connection and it said it failed the "loopback test". I tried pinging and it worked. Is this indicative of hardware failure?
