    Hello, I'll continue here, since nobody replied.
    So, I have the same problem, except I'm running on Windows 8. All other laptops that I have, with Win 7 are connecting fine to wifi, except for this one.
    It happend over night, I had normal network, and suddenly it showed me limited access, and "wifi doesn't have a valid ip configuration". Tried everything, even restoring to factory state.

    Here what I get when I hit ipconfig/all:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

    C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig/all

    I started your own thread for you here, as we cannot help multiple people with different problems in the same thread.

    You appear to have Windows 8.1.

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from the PC manufacturer's web site.

    What exactly happens when you try to connect by wireless?

    Can you successfully connect by ethernet?

    I can't connect by enthernet, because it's physically on another location in the house, not in my property.

    When I connect by wireless, it says: Limited access: wifi doesn't have a valid ip configuration.

    It is the latest driver.

    Try with encryption disabled on the router.

    What encryption are you using?

    Sorry, I don't know what that is... where can I look?

    EDIT: WPA2-PSK
    SSID

    is that it?

    "WPA2-PSK" is the type of encryption. :)

    Can it be solved without involving a router, because it is not in my property? Other notebooks (Win7) are working properly..

    What do you mean by "not in my property"? You are using somebody else's internet service?

    Yes, I'm agreed with my neighbour to use his wireless. I mean I can ask him to do something with the router, but he is not so familiar with it, and I can't do it myself.

    Sorry, but we cannot help with this situation. The specific rule is (bolding added by me)

    To be clear, we also do not assist in your neighbor breaking his contract with his ISP.

    "My neighbor" is my wife's brother. We live in the same house, diferent floors. Nobody is breaking anything... This is a bit rude...

    Maybe more accurate to say that you were misleading rather than rude. I'll accept your latest explanation. If anybody has additional advice they are welcome to offer it.

    I mean what is this? A church or a tech forum? I said neighbour, because I don't want to explain my personal stuff, and why it is for me difficult to mess with router. I didn't know that moral standards come first on this forum..
    Nobody is doing anything illegal, so you can calm down. We pay for every thing we have, we don't steal anything. Gosh...

    So, I guess no one know how to deal with this issue?

    I did calm down; now it's your turn. :) Had you remembered the "piggyback" rule (which is one of the rules to which you agreed when joining yesterday) and understood it you would have also understood the need to explain how your situation differed. You've now explained and I've accepted your explanation.

    All right. You realize that very few people read this "I agree" stuff?

    So, if it's necessery, I'll go to him, but, he won't let me mess his PC, I just could try to explain him what to do, but we barely talk to each other.

    Can it be fixed without envolving router part?
