You need to give the exact message that's being given.  What you've offered so far is not specific enough to offer guidance.

Do you mean your machine says that you have no valid IP address?


Has this just started happening?

Let's reset the IP connection.


Press the Windows key  and the X key to open the Windows Mobility Center menu.

When the menu opens select Command Prompt (Admin), this will open the Command Prompt with Administrator permissions.

Copy and paste the commands below one at a time and pressing Enter after each command is pasted in.  After the first command you may be asked to restart the computer, ignore it and go on to the second command.

netsh winsock reset

netsh int ip reset

Close the Command Prompt and restart the computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
