My desktop is no longer connecting. I have tried it both hardwired and through WiFi. The MS troubleshooter comes back with the same error message "does not have valid IP address".

Additionally the WiFi troubleshooter also gave the following "problem with wireless adapter or access point".

Is there something I can check in s/w or does it look like I'm getting a new motherboard?

Uninstall and install latest version of the wireless card driver. If you have a working computer you can download the wireless card driver from either website of wireless card manufacturer or your computer manufacturer website.

FIXED!!!   I tried reinstalling the TCP/IP Setting using some instructions found on Tom's H/W and that did the trick.
