Hi there,

First of apologies if this is in the wrong forum.

I built a new pc about a month ago now and have recently run into an internet problem. I could connect to the internet fine then all of a sudden it stopped connecting. If I run the troubleshooter the error is saying

"Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP Configuration

The internet works fine for all other devices in the house, the only other potential problem is that im using the network adapters that plug into sockets and transfer the connection through the mains, not sure if that will make any differnce

Ive tried loads of different things from around the internet (updating ipv4 ip, resetting pc/router etc) with no luck. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance

Have you tried hooking up the PC at the router so you're taking all of your power line adapters out of the equation?

Rules of troubleshooting - remove all potential issues from the equation. Go back to basics. If it works - add 1 item at a time to figure out what is causing the issue.

Thanks for the quick reply and I appreciate the advice. If you have any other suggestions for a solution it would be good, moving the pc to be close enough to the router is a pretty big inconvenience

How far away is it? A long network cable isn't feasible?
