Windows 7 wireless connection TC/PIP conflict

Posted on 2013-11-08
Last Modified: 2013-12-30
Hello all,
I have a Windows 7 laptop that connects to a wireless router system in an 18 story tower.  Most of the time it connects fine.  Today is it indicating a T/CPIP conflict.
I have removed the wireless network
I have tried 'diagnose' the wireless network connection, in 'Network Connections'
I have removed the network and powered down the laptop

Any suggestions to help me get this reconnected?  I don't want to remove the adapter in Device manager, I would have to reconfigure my VPN.

Conflict with another IP?  Is it configured as a static?  Can you ping the address you receive from another system when you disconnect?  I think there is just a duplicate IP or an issue with the wireless router.  One thing you can do is remove the wireless connection from your laptop in the wireless properties and try doing a fresh connect.

You need to check the DHCP server and see who has the IP address or you could set it up as a static IP.

I just ran an elevated Command prompt and entered

Rebooted.  Getting the same error.  Specifically it is "Wireless network connection does not have a valid IP configuration"

This is essentially a simple setup.  In there basement there is only a sonicwall firewall that accepts the internet connection from Comcast.  It goes out to a POE network switch.  There are wireless routers on each of the 18 floors that give out IPs to wireless connections

There must be a rogue wireless AP in the building that is giving you an IP
