DHCP or TCP/IP

By mrjackson73 ·
I have a home user who is behind a linksys wireless router. Communication between the router and system seem to be fine. But I receive a Tcp/ip and a DHCP error every day.
Error: Your computer was not assigned an address from the network (by the DHCP server)for the network Card with the (mac address)the following error occurred.
the operation was canceled by the user..Your computer will continue to try to obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.This error is causing a crash everyday.What should I do?

If all of your setting for the adapter are correct, I would try removing the adapter (virtually) and rebooting. When the system finds the adapter again, it will reinstall the networking stack and default to dhcp. This has worked in the past for many dhcp problems I've encountered. The stack might have been corrupted. Good Luck.

Sounds like you've enforced wireless restriction to only authorized MAC addresses, but yours is not properly authorized.

Go into a command prompt and do ipconfig /all and write down your wireless MAC address. Now from a system with access to the router go and add that MAC as authorized.

The problem is the DHCP server. If you have not a DHCP server in the network, you must set an IP address for the computer. The router must have 2 IP address, 1 for the internet side and other for the LAN side. For example for the LAN side the router is configured to have the 192.168.0.1 IP address, so the computer must have for example the 192.168.0.2 IP address, and the 192.168.0.1 gateway address. Try this configuration, and good luck.

Do you have more than one nic on the machine? There could be a conflict. If so disable the one your not using.

I already had the 2nd nic disabled.
Thank you for trying.
