Woke up this morning, booted up (Vista) to check e-mail, etc. The Network Connection tray icon has an angry X over it. Right-click, "Diagnose and repair." Windows Network Diagnostics says, "There might be a problem with one or more network adapters on this computer." It recommends that I update the drivers (they're current) or to make sure the IP bindings are correct (they are). Same thing for the wired connection. I don't think anything's changed since last night, when everything worked fine. Advice?

Hello Becca,

Lets renew your connection to the gateway.
  • Go to Start -> Type: cmd
  • cmd.exe will show up. Right click and Run as Administrator
  • A black box will appear. Type in: ipconfig /release
  • After it is done releasing. Type in: ipconfig /renew
  • This should renew your connection with your gateway.

Regards,
Olrik

Sorry, forgot to mention that bit. Windows makes me lazy about CLI work. Entering either of those commands gives "The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation." Just ipconfig doesn't show any network devices.

Then I come to the same conclusion so far.
I think your drivers need to be re-installed.

I suggest you download a new copy of your ethernet controller drivers.
Then remove the old driver.
After you remove it, reboot.
Then install the new driver.

Let me know how that went.

Regards,
Olrik

Yeah, we're good. Guess I was hoping for something more "hi-tech"... something's always bothered me aesthetically about just replacing stuff rather than repairing, but a fix is a fix. Thanks!

I spoke too soon. The wireless card is now detecting my network, but gives a "limited connection" error. Diagnosis gives the same message as before. ipconfig /release shows "An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1: The system cannot find the file specified." Ick.

I really need something here, even if it's just, "You're boned. Time for a reformat." Thanks!

I have never heard of a problem with the loopback but you indicated it in an error so lets test it.

Try to ping the following address:

127.0.0.1

Let us know the result.

4/4 packets received. Round trip times all 0 ms.

In other news, ipconfig /release or /renew are both back to "This operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation." I've changed absolutely nothing in the last week.

Alright, back to drivers. Right click on my computer and select "manage". Click on device manager on the left pane. Do you have any "!" or "?" or "X" listed under any of the drivers (more specificially, network adapters)? Did your internet actually work in between post 3 and 4 on this thread?

Hello there.

I apologize for the huge delay as I was on a holiday.
I see Titan is helping you, I'll keep track on the topic to see if I can pop in any ideas.

Device manager believes everything's A-OK. No, the internet wasn't actually working at any point.
