    I logged into my friend's wifi and it was working fine and all of a sudden it said "unidentified network and no Internet access." I thought it was just his router and ignored it and when I went home to connect to my own wifi I got the same error. I troubleshot and reset my router and I now have a screen that says "wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration" how can I fix this?

    Run a command prompt and enter the command:

    ipconfig /all

    This wll enable you to examine your ip configuration. Post the output here if you would like help interpreting it.

    Enter the command:

    ipconfig /all > C:\users\yourusername\ipcon.txt

    Obiouly, replacing yourusername with your own windows user name. This will send the output from the command to a file on your desktop which you can then post here.

    LegendaryHacker: If you have an issue, may I suggest you start a new thread with title name and state your problem in the new thread. Hijacking another thread and just listing your IP configuration doesn't tells us anything about your particular situation.
