Windows 7 laptop unable to gain a IP address or connect to the LAN.
Posted on 2014-02-03
My laptop was connecting to the internet previously but now it cannot. No software has been installed and nothing has changed on my router. It cannot connect using wired or wireless. Using wireless - The signal strength is excellent but it shows as 'limited connectivity'. I have other devices connect via wired and wireless successfully.
When I do a ipconfig /renew or release via cmd - The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation”
I've run netsh int ip reset reset.log
Set a static IP address within the range of my SKY router.
Ran SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
When I do a IPCONFIG - 'Windows IP configuration'.
The ethernet and wireless devices are showing no issues in device manager. Latest drivers installed.
I have tried connecting using a USB internet dongle but the same issue happens, does this rule out the LAN/Router then?
How do i get my laptop to connect?
