As the message suggests, I am having troubles with my wired connection, receiving the "Local Area Network" does not have a valid IP configuration. I have already checked out the driver for my Realtek 8111F port, and it is up to date after receiving its own error of being asleep. Now it is plugged in and green lighted. I have already attempted setting a static IPv4 address, using Google DNS servers for the DNS settings. I have also attempted setting the network address manually. Still no dice. Additional details are that I have recently moved dorms at my college, yet the same computers that accompanied this one are having no issues, even with the same cable.
Below is my ipconfig /all :
Windows IP Configuration
Try disabling your wireless, you're not pulling a DHCP address from your network, probably because you already have a default gateway set up via wireless. Windows does not like it when there is more than one default gateway
Mkay, I have just tried disabling the wireless. After that failed, I also disabled the Hamachi network, given that that has caused troubles for my computer in the past. This also failed. Anything else that may work?
Solved it. We have to register our machines to a network, and my network address was blocked for whatever reason. Probably why I was not pulling a DHCP address. Anyways, I changed my LAN network address to my laptop's network address and it works now. =D
