"Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Hi Everyone,

I apologise in advance if this is listed elsewhere, i have looked through the database of questions to no immediate avail. This is taking too much time, and i need a fix that is not a temp one.

I added some more memory to our server yesturday, so shut it down to perform the install. I also shut down my laptop, to see if I had space to updrage my memory as well.

When i rebooted i lost connection to the network and internet, and it says to me, "Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. If i plug in a network cable is says "local Network connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.

Any assistance will be appreciated.

Thank you

Where are your computers getting their IP addresses?  DHCP?  From the server?  From a router?

The problem was corrected server side as the DNS server was not listening to the IP address of the primary network adapter. I had plugged the network cable back into the secondry network adapter, instead of the assigned network adapter, once corrected, it solved the problem. Thanks
