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.

My iPad computer iPhone all say connected to wireless but unable to browse internet


Is there any chance that in the last 24 hrs (or whenever your Internet stopped working) that you added a cable box converter to your home network by plugging a LAN/ethernet jack into the back of the box? If you did, that would be the problem.

On your PC, go to the bottom left corner and type "CMD" in the search/run box. This will open a pop-up DOS window. Type "IP config" and hit the enter key on your keyboard. This will tell you the IP address of your computer. You may have to scroll up to see it, but if you're running your computer through a router, the IP address should be something like 192.168.1.xx (the xx stands for a 2-3 digit number that is specific to each device on your network and can only appear once; 2 devices cannot have the same IP address).

If the IP address is something like 192.168.100.xx - then your problem is the router giving your computer an invalid IP address. My network router was doing this same thing and it frustrated the heck out of me. Long story short, much Internet research revealed the problem was because I had my cable box (the one that connect directly to your TV) plugged into my network. As soon as I unplugged it and rebooted my modem and my router, the problem was resolved.

I hope that helps.

Hi Friend, In this case as you have told me that you have other laptop which is working fine wirelesly. I would like you to check the IP address of the system in which you are facing the issues.
To check the IP address: 1) If system has XP Click on "Start" and then "Run". Type "cmd" in Run and hit enter A black screen will pop up, in that type "ipconfig", where the cursor will be blinking Check the IP adress under " Ethernet adapter local area connection" & " Wireless adapter"
2) If it is Vista/Win 7 Click on Start again and in Search field type cmd and hit enter Same black screen will pop up and repeat the same above steps in the black window and check the IP adress

No connectivty to internet


Your problem is very indicative of an assigned ip address to your wireless card. Assuming you have windows xp as your operating system. Go to start, run, type in CMD, once the dos screen appears type ipconfig and look to see what your assigned ip address is.

2 wire router and Comcast


Cable from modem gets inserted into router port named WAN/Internet
from router you should have a cable going into back computer ethernet port.
once inserted, input router IP address into an address bar (IE or My Computer) eg. 192.168.1.1 --- to find out what your router I is:
Start > Run > cmd > ipconfig /all --- router ip would be listed as Default Gateway or DHCP server
Once logged into router, go to Properties page of router config and perform a Release and Renew of router's ip
