I have been trying to restore my Internet connection for 3 days now and I am getting no where. All my connection would say is, acquiring network address.

I have tried restarting my computer, repairing the network connection and even reinstalling the driver. I tried to look into doing system restore but there is no restore date to choose from.

Any help I can get, will surely appreciate it.

Go to command prompt and renew the IP address from there.

Start > Run > type "command".

On the black window > type "ipconfig /renew".

It did not work and it gave me an error message, "An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless Network Connection: The interface is unknown."

You mentioned that this is a wireless connection. Are you wired connection on this computer?

If so, have you tried using it just to isolate the problem if it's just with the wireless connection?

Do you also have other computers connected and working properly?

My Ethernet port broke down for quite some time now and I have been solely relying on my wireless connection. It worked before 3 days ago and it might just be some settings on the computer.

My brother has a wireless computer and its working fine.

It could be a Windows' local service. Try these steps below:

Start > Run > type "services.msc", locate DHCP client, right click DHCP client and "properties". Choose "automatic" for startup type and Click "Start".

DHCP client was disabled somehow.

I choose the startup type "Automatic" and restarted the machine twice. The computer is back online.

I felt relieved knowing I will be able to use the Internet once more.

Thanks for all the help. You're the best!
