Windows 7: "Doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

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?

What brand and model of wireless card are you using? Also how did you configure your connection to the router?

It should help to enter the default gateway manually although we need to know what it is first.

You can get that by doing an ipconfig when the connection is working then enter what ever default gateway is showing manually. Picture below shows you where to enter that info.

Click where it says ipv4 then choose properties then change to manual IP and enter which ever IP and default gateway shows up in your ipconfig.

It might be easier to make sure that you are using DHCP in your routers control panel. Usually the default gateway will stay put using DHCP.
