Hi I am hoping somebody out there can help me.
I have been trying for a couple of days now to connect to my network/internet at home but it keeps coming up with Unidentified Network (public) on my desktop. It is a wired connection. My laptop connects fine both wired and wireless to the connection.
I have tried everything on the internet to try and solve it. Changing ipv4 settings. using the cmd prompt for various resets. Updating network drivers and nothing changes. Tried this: http://support.micro...kb/299357/en-gb
I have moved with this computer a few times and never had an issue connecting to any network/hub. I have an Asus Maximus II motherboard so I have two ports and both have the same issue. When i try and resolve problems i get this issue: Local area connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration. in the network and sharing center. I have my IPv4 settings set to automatic at the moment the same as my laptop and still does not work.
When i run the ipconfig in the cmd prompt I get no default gateway showing. I get an IPv4 Address starting 169.254.
When i run ipconfig/renew i get the following message: An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection: unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.
An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-interface 1: The system cannot find the file specified.
Any help greatly appreciated.
