unidentified network no internet access
I can connect to the network but doesn't connect to the internet. I have tried a lot of ipconfig cmd's /renew said "unable to connect to dhcp server" and others didnt work all out of ideas.

Try this.. worked for me!
Run your computer in Safe Mode with Networking. Should let you on the internet. Download this fix. Install and run it. Then reboot. It basically resets all your networking configurations to default. It worked for me after trying everything else. The program is called WinSock XP Fix, but it's for all operating systems. Let me know if it worked.

Try ipconfig /flushdns..? Not sure if that'll help at all but it can't really hurt.

If other computers can connect to the internet, but not yours, then you might want to look at your adapter settings..

I tried ipconfig /flushdns but it didn't work. What do you mean by adapter settings?

Are you on WiFi or Ethernet (plugged in)?

Did you omit anything from the IPCONFIG post?

Try this.. we'll keep trying something til we get you going.

Select Start / Network.
At top of screen, select Network and Sharing Centre.
Sharing and Discovery - check settings:
Network Discovery should be ON
Network type should be Private Network, NOT public network. To change this, select Customise and, on table that appears, change locaton type to Private.
Last, but not least, click on the X at the top of the screen between the Computer and Network icons. This will then reset the network adapter.

From what you posted, you shouldn't be able to connect to anything..

It should look like this:
Quote:
C:\Users\Alex>ipconfig
Windows IP Configuration
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Not to be an *******, but is the wireless switch enabled?..
