Hi,

I have recently got a wireless broadband connection. There is a router for the laptop upstairs that works just fine, but when I tried to get an extra cable for the PC downstairs, I get an error message saying "Local Area Connection doesn't have valid IP configuration. I am able to access the Net using a dongle but I cannot figure out how to get the wireless cable to work.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds more likely a problem on the Operating System side but checking the cable its always good idea if you can try to connect another machine using the same cable and see if it works.

Can you take a Screenshot of Device Manager
  • open Device Manager (Start > Run > devmgmt.msc)
  • expand the Network Adapters
  • take a screenshot of the Device Manager Window and add the picture to your post
