Invalid Ip Address / Connecting To Home Network


When i first hooked this new laptop to my wired network everything worked fine for two days, but i haven't been able to access the internet or my network since. The only way i can get online is wireless. All my other pc's on the network are not wireless (yet). When i troubleshoot, and go through all the reset divice and so on the end result is "invalid ip address". My other pcs are hooked to the same router and they work fine, (running xp home and pro).

Ip Address Conflict On Home Network

I am a new at this and have never asked a question before but i am utterly lost. I am having a problem getting my 3 computers to connect to my wireless network. I am running windows 7. I can connect the laptop but when i try to connect the netbook or the desktop. I get an error of "ip address conflict". Below is a list of what i have tired.

Disconnected the wireless router and the modem.
Reset the wireless router to try to force a new ip address.
I have read and read.

I just read about the dhcp client and that is enabled but if i do a cmd ipconfig /all it says that dhcp client is not enabled but the auto configuration is enabled. The physical address is showing a string of zeros. Done an ipconfig to release and renew on both the laptop and the netbook.

When i do just an ipconfig:

Connection-specific dns suffix domain_not_set. Invalid
Ipv6 address: 2002:45b6:6a50:45b6:6a50
Default gateway: 2002:c058:6301:c058:6301

I have read all over this forum and i keep trying everything and nothing is working. I am not sure if i gave enough information. Any advice?

Connecting To Home Wireless

I'll try to describe this as simply as possible. I cannot connect to my home's wireless. I can connect to my neighbors (not password protected) and my church's (password protected) networks, and begin to connect to my neighbors password protected wireless networks. My home's internet is up and running; there are multiple machines using it right now, including 3 laptops, a computer and a ps3. As i am running windows 7 on my macbook pro through bootcamp (3. 1), i can even boot into mac osx and i will be connected. The problem is this operating system, which i installed yesterday.

I think i messed up when i chose "public" network instead of "home" or "private" network during the installation. I think i've tried everything and any help is greatly appreciated. The message i get when i try to connect is essentially "windows was unable to connect to this network" note that this does happen with a few other networks around the area.

Connecting To Network

I just reinstalled windows vista to my laptop, when i try to connect to a network its says there are none, but there is b/c i have another pc connected to my internet, i used the internet earlier today before i reinstalled, so its all set up right. I've tried plugging the internet cable directly to the laptop and internet explorer still don't work. The reason i reinstalled windows vista is today along with the past 2 days, when i start up my laptop i get a pop up telling me to update to internet explorer 8, so i did, when i restarted, the dell screen would load up and then it would just go to bank black screen, with no mouse, nothing, the desktop never ever did load in just stayed blank. I'm new to this, and don't know what else to do.

Network Error Shared Ip Address

I am getting the following error message occasionally:



"Another computer on this network has the same ip address as this computer.contact your network administrator for help resolving this issue. More details are available in the windows system event log. "

I cannot find the windows system event log. I have another computer attached to the same router, but i have not created a home group or file sharing, and the other computer is not even turned on. How do i fix this? What are the implications?

Mapping Network Drives On A Home Network Issue

I have two pc on my home network, one is a desktop running window 2000, attached to this is an external hard drive. The second is a laptop running windows 7. Before i upgraded to windows 7 i was running window vista on the laptop. When i had window vista on my laptop i was able to map a network drive to both the desktop's hard-drive and also to the external hard drive attached to the desktop.

After upgrading to windows 7 when i try to access the desktop or map the external hard drive i'm asked for a domain password. When i enter the user id and password of the desktop i keep getting the request for my domain password. I don't remember setting up a domain password at the time of the windows 7 upgrade.

My computer crashes and shows a bsod very often. The thing is that happens usually when i'm connected to a wireless network in my office. I thought it was some problem with the office wireless network, but then it happened with the network of a hotel i was staying in some time ago. And those are the only situations when it happens. At home it works just fine, without any problems. What should i do?

Win 7 Home Network

Recently my home network wigged out on me. 3 machines, all win 7 home premium, 2 wireless and 1 hardwired into router(netgear 3700 max range dual band. All 3 set for home network and homegroup.
The 2 wireless can see both home network and homegroup and can access the files but the hardwired lan in to the router cant access the files on the 2 wireless. The wireless computers show in windows explorer but when i attempt access the files i get an error saying the specified network provider is invalid. The thing is, everything worked fine until one day it didn't.

All 3 boxes are less then 1 year old so they are pretty up to date. I even bought another router thinking that it maybe the problem but it didn't help. Any help? Also, is there any way to use one router as a repeater now that i have 2?

Cannot Connect To Home Network

I was on the internet on my pc earlier today and as i was typing in a url into the browser, all of a sudden, my internet connection was lost. When i tried to reconnect, it said "the settings saved on this computer for the network do not match the requirements of the network. " I didn't change any settings and i've been using the internet with my home network for at least 4 months now with no prior problems. (We bought a new router and wireless adapter, both of which are trendnet and have never given us any problems before).

I tried uninstalling my wireless internet usb adapter and then installing it again and it still won't work. I've tried manually connecting to the network as well, but that won't work either. When i tried connecting to the network, it was also telling me that the password was incorrect, but when i checked on all the other computers/laptops in the house that are connected, they all had the same password entered and are all getting the internet. I really am stumped as to why the connection suddenly stopped working and why i can't get it to work again even after all i've tried.

Home Network Computers Do Not See Each Other

I have a hybrid home network with a cisco linksys wireless router and linksys voip phone adapter. I say hybrid, because my pc is hard-wired to the router while my laptop is wireless. Both computers are running windows 7. Both computers see the internet and work fine; however, i can't get the computers to see each other on the home network. I tried setting up the home network through windows 7 rules with no luck. I installed the cisco network manager software and the router software will not link the two together either. I have the network wired per the voip phone adapter instructions, which is to capture the modem stream through the voip adapter and send it to the pc. Phone also works fine this way. Anyone got a clue why the computers don't see each other, and if it is because of the way the voip adapter is connected, how should my network be wired?

My wife connected her work laptop to our home network. We own five computers all running windows 7. Now the network show 79 computers. When i goto control panel network and internet network map it says "the following discovered device(s) can not be placed in the map. )" When i "click here to see all other devices. " I get a list titled "computer (74)" all items in this list are machines at my wife's workplace. How do i get them off the list? Out of the homegroup? It is odd how i cannot find this information with a bing search, but have no trouble finding how to add computers.

Home Network Between Vista And Win 7

I have one laptop computer with windows 7 and one desktop computer with windows vista (both 64bit home premium). Both computers connect to internet via a dsl modem. The laptop connects to the modem using wlan and the desktop using lan cable. The internet is working fine.

Now i have been trying to create a home network. I would like to share some directories and the whole d: drive of the desktop in the network.

From the desktop(vista) computer i'm able to see the public folders of the laptop. I put some pictures in the directory and one quite small application. I'm able to view the content of the folders but the pictures are loading very very slowly. At the first time i tried to execute the programme (an installation programme of some small shareware application) i got an error message witch had something to do with dns addresses. At second time it worked but slowly.

I tried to share the d: hard drive of the desktop. From the laptop i'm able to see the icon of "d" in the network places but when i click it, get an error that i don't have the rights to open it.

Printer Does Not Work In One Of Laptops Using Home Network

I recently installed windows 7 on my three computers: a pc and two laptops. I use a hp psc 410 all-in-one-printer connected to the pc. However, it does not work in one of the laptops using a home network. The first laptop connects well with the printer through the network.

The second laptop does not as it keeps on asking to install a driver to connect to the printer. I clean-installed windows 7 on all three computers, so they should all behave the same. Any ideas or recommendations anyone?

Trouble Setting Up A Home Network (non-internet Type)

I am trying to set up a home network (non-internet type). It needs to work like a cleint type as my laptop is the main and the other three can connect to it to do work through the same program. I followed all the instructions on how to set up homegroup and made sure everyone has same passwords, and settings and all that and i am still having trouble getting all computers to connect correctly everytime we log on. I have done all trouble shooting and they cannot find out what the problem is. It makes it very frustrating when my children have to wait a half an hour or so just so i can try and get everyone connected right. Does anyone have any solutions? Or is ther a way that i can make the network work without a homegroup?
