My laptop won’t acquire network address. How can I fix this? There are a lot of different causes to this problem, but there are only a few solutions. To choose the best solution you will have to look more into what cause the problem.
Most of the time, people have this problem when they try to change something in their home network. This could be something as simple as adding a computer to the network or changing the password on the wireless router. Normally, these things can be done without any trouble. However, there are times when the router needs to be reset before things will work normally as before. You can reset the router by unplugging it and plugging it back up, or simply by finding and pressing the reset button. This can fix your problem, but in some cases it may add more steps to the solution.
Whenever you change the IP address on a high speed internet device you will most likely have to reset the modem along with the wireless router. That means if you change some settings on the router that cause it to have a different IP address then you will have to also reset your cable modem or DSL modem. This also applies if you are getting rid of your wireless router or adding in a wireless router.
If this doesn’t fix the problem then you will have to look into your laptop to fix the problem. You can try the troubleshoot option to see if the laptop can find the problem on its own. If this doesn’t work then you can try to hook up the laptop directly to the wireless router by Ethernet. If this does not work for you then you may have a bigger problem. You will most likely have to do a system restore. In the worst case scenario, you will have to reinstall Windows to fix the problem. This is because you may have some corrupt system files that even a system restore cannot fix. A “system restore” only changes settings while a Windows reinstallation will restore files.
