Limited or no connectivity. You might not be able to access the Internet or some network resources. This problem occurred because the network did not assign a network address to the computer.
When I try to repair it says : Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed: Renewing your IP address.
I also get cannot find server on DNS error
I have a another computer connected to the internet, so it is not the internet or modem, it has to do with with the laptop, It worked fine just a couple days ago it completely stop working when the power went out, it also keeps freezing.

if u know the IP address of your router and ur servicve provider's server IP then ping it....
go to Start/Run
in the next window type this
ping 18.104.22.168 -t (the number is the IP address of ur router...replace the number written by me with ur router number)
ping 22.214.171.124 -t (the number here is the IP address of internet service provider server...replace the number written by me with one for your internet service provider server IP address)
the ping window will be a DOS window with responce from the respective server/router with milli seconds mentioned as responce time....if that comes then ur connection is ok
for further info check with ur internet provider
I think we need some more information to help you.
How are you connecting to the internet? Do you have a ISP issued modem/router? Do you have a personally purchased router?
Go to a command prompt (click select-Run- type cmd and press enter). Once you are at a command prompt type ipconfig /all and post that information. If your IP address starts with 169.254.. and a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 then your IP address was assigned by APIPA and not your provider/router.
If you get another IP address then here are some things to check...
ping 127.0.0.1 this is a loop back test. If you get results than you have TCP/IP protocols installed.
ping x.x.x.x (your actual IP) if you get results back than you have a routing table or network driver issue.
ping x.x.x.x (your gateway IP address) If you do not get a valid response then you may have issues with cabling, network adaptor, or the router or gateway device.
This should at least get you started. See ms kb 314067 for more details.
you can ping a website to check if there's data flow. if you're using vista just click the Start button and type in command in the start search, then right click the Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator". in the command prompt just type in this command:
if the result is 0% loss then there is dataflow, it might be your firewall blocking the connection or your browser itself is not working properly. you might need to reset the browser if that's the case.
if the result is 100% loss then type in this command:
if the result here is 0% loss then it's probably a DNS problem which is quite easy to resolve. you can download and run this application from microsoft:
Have you tried disabling your firewalls, f it came with norton 360 or norton internet security remove it and then try connecting if you can then its your firewall stopping it another way to try without uninstalling is to click on the start button then in the search box type CMD and press return in the command prompt that opens type ping www.google.com and hit enter if you get four packets sent and four received your firewall is blocking the internet connection. Remove it try the internet if it works reinstall it and it will detect the new network and allow you access.
type ipconfig in the command prompt window and hit enter if you get a 169.x,x,x x=any number then the laptop has no ip. Make sure that the network card isnt disabled if they all fail and the laptop hasnt got an ip address, then the problem is the cable modem, is the internet active? I.e. you can plug it into another pc and it works
Have you properly entered in all of your network's info into the laptop? Sometimes security settings can block access to the Wireless network. Here's a quick way to diagnose network connection. (Make sure you know the IP address of your router!)
1. open your Command Prompt
2. type in the following "ping (Router IP address example: 192.168.1.1 " after entering the following press enter.
(you should see a series of lines that say how long the packet took to make a round trip...if not, then you have no connection to the wirless network)
3. if the results of the ping test read "100% loss" you know that connection is definately not established.
Your next course of action should be to inspect your laptop's settings and ensure that your laptop can "see" the router. If your laptop's NIC ( Network Interface Card ) cannot detect the network it is possible that the NIC is bad or your router isn't set to "Broadcast" your SSID ( Service Set Identifier ) aka network. this following article might be able to assit you in the troubleshooting process more throughly. I hope this to be of some help to you!
The 1390 WLAN Minicard may not be configured to communicate with your wireless router.
Check the wireless router settings, (check the wireless settings on your other computer) and configure the 1390 WLAN with the same settings eg. SSID, WEP/WAP encryption, etc.
Is MAC address filtering enabled on your wireless router, if so add the MAC address of the 1390 WLAN to the MAC address list in the wireless router.
Check the TCP/IP properties of the 1390 WLAN card the Internet protocol should not have a fixed IP address, set it to Obtain an IP address automatically including the DNS.
Use the Ipconfig command to see the IP configuration of the network cards.
Use the Ping command to see if you can communicate with wireless router.
questions to ask yourself: - I the wifi card connecting to the routers wifi network? or your next door neighbors? - did it connect with the correct WEP? withouot the right WEP it will not communicatwith the WAP - is the router set to be the DHCP server? this function is normally defaulted to ON
some times though windows simply has to have its TCP stack reset after having been connected to too many different networks, especially if you are a heavy wifi user.
open a command prompt: I see you already know how.
Type this command line
netsh int ip reset <anyfilenameyoulike>.txt the txt file will be a log file tha will be placed on your main (c:) drive after the NETSH command has run
next lets reset winsock since we are here in the command line anyhow
netsh winsock reset
if everything goes right you'll be prompted to reboot you machine.
hopefully this will solve your inability to aquire an IP address from the router.
Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
Click Run... on this menu.
If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.
Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.
To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically.
