    Unidentified Network/valid IP configuration: both Ethernet and WiFi


    Before I bring this computer in, I'll try one last shot with posting on forums rather than just reading them.

    I've tried just about everything I can think of to google, and coming to those more literate in hopes that I've missed something in my travels. Though I've tried all the usual suspects, setsh and all the rest, I'm fine with re-trying everything from the beginning as well.

    Here's the specs and the answers to some common questions:

    IP addresses are set to connect automatically for both IPv4 and 6.

    Antivirus disabled.

    Network adapters uninstalled and autofound.

    When attempting to install latest Realtek drivers, the following message appears: Realtek Network Controller was not found.
    Says the driver is installed but it is the same version as before.

    When running Realtek's diagnostic utility, the following error appears: Fail set
    Operates normally, except when clicking on Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2, which causes it to display Fail Set again and reset the program.

    I admit I don't know what Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter #2 or Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection* 4 refer to.


    Asus UX305F laptop running Windows 10 x64. Becomes quite warm since the problem, maybe due to trying to connect. Used to run extremely cool so it is a noticeable difference.


    I tried a bunch of other things as well, but clearly I'm just missing something here, so might as well start from the beginning.

    Thanks for any guidance you can give.

  3. Ethernet connection issues in Windows 10

    Original Title: Unidentified Network - No Network / Ethernet - Limited

    I built my computer about a year ago, and I've only ever used wifi with it. I finally got an ethernet cord connected, but it doesn't seem to work properly.


    Unidentified Network/valid IP configuration: both Ethernet and WiFi [​IMG]


    I've tried:

    Resetting my IP via the Command Prompt 'netsh' reset.

    Updating my network driver.

    Resetting both my computer and my router (numerous times, trying different variations, like disconnecting the two, then resetting them, then reconnecting them).

    And Network Troubleshoot, which provides me with an "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration -- Not fixed" message.

    Unidentified Network/valid IP configuration: both Ethernet and WiFi

    When you see your IP address in the 169.254.xxx.xxx range that means you are not getting a DNS from your router. Try to turn your router off for about 15 seconds and then turn it back on and see if that helps.

    You may have to restart your computer also.

    For the last few months/weeks/days I've tried to fix this, various rebooting and resetting the router hasn't helped as of yet. For the record, though, I did try that again just now but to no avail - but just so you know the narrative so far.

  6. Can you try connecting to the internet without the router? It might be faulty.
    Have you tried to disable DHCP, set IP range and set up connection manually?

    I have this problem everywhere, not just at home. Though at home I have access to connect directly or with the Ethernet, which doesn't seem to change the issue at all. Specifically, we've tried assigning IP addresses manually already.

    If I didn't understand your suggestion though, just let me know what steps I need to do.

  8. Unidentified Network/valid IP configuration: both Ethernet and WiFi

    I guess you have already tried typical reset commands like listed here: Windows Network Fix

    You could also setup different DNS servers.

    How to Switch to OpenDNS or Google DNS

    Have you also tried typical suggestions like disabling IPv6, by unchecking it in protocols and using commands:

    netsh int ipv6 isatap set state disabled
    netsh int teredo set state disabled
    netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled undoonstop=disabled
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters" /v "DisabledComponents" /t REG_DWORD /d "255" /f

    Disable LMHOSTS Lookup and Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP and also delete all protocols except IPv4.

    While I had previously tried disabling it in the graphics interface, I hadn't tried it via command prompt yet.

    netsh int ipv6 isatap set state disabled
    netsh int teredo set state disabled
    netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled undoonstop=disabled This one returned an error: A device attached to the system is not functioning.
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters" /v "DisabledComponents" /t REG_DWORD /d "255" /f

    I had previously tried to delete all protocols, but I've done it again. This time the uninstall button for v6 was greyed out and I'm pretty sure it wasn't before. But I tried after the commands above.

    I'll wait on the DNS until tonight. I had a new modem come, just to reduce the number of issues since the other week it went crazy assigning addresses. That was after the problem with this laptop though which has been like this for quite a while (looks like an interesting link anyway though)!

    Also, setting up a new DNS only affects me here. I'll still have trouble connecting elsewhere probably, wouldn't I?

    Copypasted the pastebin too for good measure.

    In any case, the result of all this now is that it doesn't say Unidentified Network anymore. Which is good! But now it says No Internet. But the Ethernet and Wi-Fi both say "enabled"! But next to airplane mode, there isn't the "button" for wi-fi connections anymore either...

    Well, at least it's different, so thanks for the help so far! Any other ideas given all this...?

  10. You're not getting the information from the Router/ISP

    169.254 -> Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) gets assigned when the DHCP cannot provide IP addresses.

    Often, power cycling the ISP device, your network Router (if separate from the ISP device) and your machine resolves this.

    With all devices powered down, wait 5 minutes
    Power up in this order
    • your network Router (if separate from the ISP device)
    • ISP device
    • The PC
    If you have a separate network Router, try the process again, but connect your Ethernet cable directly to the ISP device

    Still no luck? Run through these
    Solved Resolve network issues - Windows 10 Forums

    Many are the same as TairikuOkami provided in commands, but give them all a shot.
