Ip config is not finding my ip address?

My internet was working fine 2 days ago on my emachine till my daughter did something to it where I couldn't connect on line anymore. I called qwest tech my internet provider and we went through the whole rebooting, disconnect power, etc... Then we went to run... ipconfig... but my computer couldn't locate my ipaddress. I didn't even have a local connection in my network connection. Then, the qwest tech told me to call emachine to establish a local connection then call them back. My internet is working fine because my laptop could search the web. My question is, why hasn't ipconfig locate my ipaddress? Do I have to be online? Is there any way to fix my problem without paying emachine for their $3.99 a minute over the phone tech support. Oh... my computer is out of warranty.

    Is network properties and network connection the same?

  • laelitalaga Dec 12, 2008

    I opened network connection and there is no devices in that file. Thats what we did with the dsl tech supporter. And thats why they told me to contact the manufacturer. I tried to download the network driver from emachine website but was unsuccessful.

    if you go to control panel and look at your network properties, do you see a device listed?

    right-Click and go to status and post back what it shows.
    Be sure it is enabled and you can go to the support tab and choose repair and it will try to fix it on its own.

No IP address? most likely the network is diable or the network card drive is deleted.
right click on the network icon>>porperties. if you see a network icon then right click on it and enable the network, if not, then the network driver is deleted.
go to control panel>>system>>hardware device, and see if there is a (red X) on the nework card.
go to the vendors website and download the network driver.

good to go!!!!!!!!

How to find a IP address for my emachines laptop


go to start -- run and type in CMD
hit enter to open a black command prompt window

type in "ipconfig" without the quotes and hit enter. This will give you your IP address.

If you need the IP address from your provider that you are using out on the public internet, just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and it will tell you what your external public IP address is.

We bought a desktop emachine, and we already have wireless internet but we can't connect to desktop wireless ..why ?


The new machine's network settings need to have the GATEWAY ip address set to the ip address of the router which will be something like 192.168.0.1 depending on the router you're using. If you can't see any networks available make sure the wireless connection isn't disabled. Look at NETWORK CONNECTIONS, wireless connection and see that it doesn't say disabled. If it is simply right click and select ENABLE.

Wrong ip address. No fix w/ipconfig/renew


192. is the beginning of a default gateway IP address and is usually only assigned when you are using a router. I recommend connecting to your router.

My kids got a new emachine. My laptop is


Hi,
The wireless network may be encrpyted with a wep password. So you will need to check this in the network when you see the detected network click connect. you will be promted for a wep password.

Second thing you will need to check if you must specify and ip address. a subnet and a gateway address or leave it dynamic that is it will find an Ip address and everything automatically by itself.

I suspect your cable modem is looking for the MAC address of your compaq's NIC. if you run IPCONFIG /ALL on the Compaq (Start run, cmd <enter> then IPCONFIG /ALL <enter> , you can get the 12 digit MAC address.

In the router setup, there should be an option to CLONE MAC address, put in the MAC address of the COMPAQ. Then release and renew the IP address in the Router from the cable modem. The router should then get a valid IP address from the cableand you should be able to connect both systems to the router and surf.

Probably, a problem with the IP addresses. A conflict between the two computers. Try to connect to the internet with only one computer turned on. Let the other one turned off. Find out the IP address with the command ipconfig. You may have to renew it (ipconfig /renew).

Then, go to the router config: See the manual of your router. You may have to reserve the 2 IP addresses in your router configuration.
