'"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration'


New Member
I got a new computer for christmas, (HP Pavilion p6214y Desktop PC, running Windows 7 64-bit[i think]).
I'm trying to connect the computer to the internet via the wireless router using an ethernet cord, but the computer doesn't connect, and when i try troubleshooting, it says " "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration ". I've been searching google, and this seems to be a pretty common problem, tho i have yet to find a proper solution. How do I get the internet working?
