  2. Cannot connect to the Internet. Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration.

    Hi Susan,

    This error message is caused by an invalid IP address assigned to your PC. To help resolve the issue, follow the steps below:

    Solution 1: Basic troubleshooting

    To re-assigned valid IP address to your computer, we may need to turn off and on your modem/router and computer.

    • Turn OFF your modem/router and computer.
    • Wait for 30 seconds before switching ON the modem/router.
    • Wait for another 60 seconds before turning ON your PC.
    • Open a browser to check if the internet is working.
    Note: Make sure that the ethernet cable is properly connected from the modem/router to the PC

    Solution 2: Reinstalling TCP/IP Settings

    • Right-click the Start button, then click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type following commands and hit enter:

      netsh winsock reset

      netsh winsock reset

      netsh int ip reset

      netsh int ip reset
    • Restart your computer.
    Let us know if it works.

    Using modems and coax instead of ethernet

    I am trying to get rid of my cable ISP, and have secured a cellular modem that is faster and cheaper than my ISP. My rental house has coax throughout, so I was thinking of using modems to connect the upstairs to the downstairs, through the coax.

    Is this possible?

    4g USB modem---computer with ICS---Ethernet to modem---coax to next modem---Ethernet to network.

    Ethernet does not have valid configuration


    I have been having on-going Internet connection problems with Windows 10 for months. Initially running the Realtek driver repair program would fix the problem. Not any more. I have tried everything suggested from various posts to no avail. I have turned off everything but IP version 4. I just installed the latest driver from Realtek (10013_01172017). No luck. My windows 10 computer is a dual boot machine. Running LinuxMint 18.1 KDE accesses the Internet just fine every time. I am connecting to my cable company's modem via ethernet hard wired. I have rebooted the modem twice today.

    My ipconfig /all results are as follows:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.14393]

    C:\Users\saord>ipconfig /all

    The IPv4 address listed above obviously does not connect to my ethernet modem. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions any of you might have to solve this problem.
