Public Area Connection - Invalid Ip Address


My public area connection is saying i have a "invalid ip address"? Well about a week ago i was trying to get on xbox live when it stopped working all of a sudden, i am connected with a ethernet cord from my laptop to my xbox 360 and i have a wireless adapter upstairs.comes to find out i checked my public area connection has a invalid ip address. So i was wondering how you could fix the invalid ip address on the public area connection. This is my network connection details: connection-specific dns suffix:

Dhcp enabled: no
Ipv4 ip address: 192. 168. 0. 1
Ipv4 subnet mask: 255. 255. 255. 0
Ipv4 default gateway:
Ipv4 dns server:
Ipv4 wins server:
Netbios over tcpip enabled: yes
Link-local ipv6 address: fe80::ed1c:bf06:eb5e:fd26%11
Ipv6 default gateway:

Ipv6 dns servers: fec0:0:0:ffff::1%1, fec0:0:0:ffff::2%1, fec0:0:0:ffff::3%1

Mac Address Invalid In Both Flash And Cmos

I suppose this issue could go under motherboards. Anyways let me list what i think is wrong. My physical address (mac address) is reading 00-00-00-00-00
I get this error in the boot screen "mac address invalid in both flash and cmos, press f1 to continue"

This occurred after i updated to latest bios and cleared the cmos. My mistake was i cleared the cmos immediately after the update, where on asrock website they say do so after an inital boot up and shut down. Oh yah i have an asrock dual vista lg775 motherboard, via pt880 pro/ultra chipset. The via lan chipset is vt6103

Basically what i'm trying to do is somehow flash in the mac address, with a proper one. I'm not even sure if i can do that, i may have to rma the board. Asrock website instructed me to fill out a technical report and submit, which i've done already. However i don't like waiting and am trying to fix this bugger myself. I've downloaded the app which runs from dos off of a bootable floppy that is capable of flashing the mac address, however i don't know if it's do able cause i don't have a mac address as of this moment. Will putting in a new one even do anything now? Oh yeah my lan is still working, which is kinda weird considering other sources i've looked at suggested that the lan would not be working if this problem had occurred. Any suggestions?

Invalid Ip Address Disconnects Internet Every 5 Mins

My internet connection has been very unstable lately, and as i discovered, my "ip address type" seems to go from "assigned by dhcp" to "invalid ip address" every now and then. So instead of obtaining an ip address automatically, i manually put in a static ip, and that seemed to solve the problem for a while, but it came back. This time the thing goes from "manually configured" to "invalid ip address". And when that happens my ip address and subnet mask becomes "0. 0. 0". Hence my internet works on and off and it's really annoying.

Can't Find Local Area Connection

Normally at first, i can see my local area connection in my network places. But somehow, suddenly i can't. My lan card is glowing and is the lan in my modem so i don't think there's a problem with them. I already checked if my lan card was docked properly and if any cable was connected well. But still, i can't see it. My internet also doesn't work because of that. How can i see it again?

Local Area Connection Does Not Have Valid Ip Configuration

Local area connection doesn't have a "valid ip configuration" -how do i fix this? So i recently got a new desk for my computer, and must've uplugged something on my router because this is what comes up when i try to see what's wrong. My internet won't work when i plug in everything needed. But when it's just my modem plugged into my computer it works fine(like now). My internet is time warner and my computer is windows 7. And my router is a linksys. (I don't know if any of these are important). Anyways, my computer diagnoses the problem as my connection not having a valid ip configuration. What do i need to do to solve this?

Local Area Connection Does Not Have A Valid Ip Configuration

I got a new laptop for college and there is a connection offered in my dorm to the school's server through a walljack. I'm connected through a simple ethernet cable and yet my computer just doesn't want to accept the fact that internet is there. I've rolled back the drivers, done a system restore and performed the bonjour service through component services. Pretty much everything every forum has said to try except for reinstalling win7 altogether which i really want to avoid.

Laptop Wont Connect To Internet, Wireless Or Local Area Connection

Last night, the wireless was fine, all connected. Then it randomly went off and wouldn't find any wireless network connections, but i just left it and went off. I went back on a few hours later, and it still wouldn't find any, even though other people could find them in our house. So i used a wire and connected to it and it was fine. Today when i went on, it still wouldn't find our wireless. So when i went to use the wire again, that wouldn't work either. It said i was working off-line, so i changed it to on-line, and it said it can't display the web-page, i really don't know what to do, but i need my internet.

How To Know Which Sp You Are Connected To Using Public Wifi ?

When you connect public wifi how can you tell which sp you're connected to? How can you tell which service provider (isp i mean) you're connected to when you do public wifi? For instance, i know starbucks & mcdonalds in the us use at&t. But how about when you're at some other location? Short of asking the workers who the isp is. They probably wouldn't know anyway.

Hdtv Invalid Format

I have an hdtv connected to my macbook pro that somehow got set to 50 hz instead of 60hz. How do i reset it? I'm using a kanex minidisplay port to hdmi adapter, which worked perfectly until a little while ago. I was looking at my display settings, and clicked something accidentally, and my connected hdtv went blank. I can still move my mouse onto the hdtv, but the tv itself says "invalid format. " If i turn on "mirror displays" and set the refresh rate back to 60 hz, it works, but as soon as i turn off mirror displays, it reverts to 50 hz. What can i do?

Answer:-
I figured it out. Click "gather windows" and then select 60 hz. Done.

Error: Invalid Drive Designation

I've been putting together a pc and decided to do a full hard drive clean, it was some application off of "ultimate boot cd" (called wipedisk). Looking back, i don't know why i did it because it seems to have screwed up things really badly. I was having some trouble with the windows xp cd (had to reinstall due to new motherboard) and it kept defaulting to that annoying oem recovery partition (this is a hard drive from an hp pc). I just decided to wipe out the whole drive, but it seems the application i used removed the mbr and partition table as well, seemingly rendering fdisk completely useless. When is use fdisk or fdisk /mbr it tells me "invalid drive designation" and aborts, does anyone have any ideas on how to get this hd back up and running? The bios still recognizes the disk, and certain partitioning tools also see it. I just can't access the mbr any more. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Invalid Page Fault ( Windows 98 )

Earlier this week, one of my customers called me up, complaining about their modem not working properly. From what i was told, the computer was on and running when there was a blackout. They didn't think to unplug it before the power came back on, but it was plugged into a surge protector. What i'm thinking is that the modem got hit by a brownout or something of the sorts, but i'm not for certain. All i know is that it is toast and will not even detect a carrier. I reccomended replacing the modem, which was agreed on by the customer, and all was well. While i was working on the computer, i noticed i kept getting a lot of the good ol' "invalid page fault" errors. I just attributed them to the fact that the computer was running on the same windows 98 install that it had last year, so i ignored it and reccomended a total format and reinstall. The customer asked if they could get by without it, and i told them they would be able to for a while, but they would start seeing a lot more of these errors as time went on. They opted to pass on the format/reinstall, so i collected my payment and left. The following day, the customer called me up and was complaining about a lot more of these errors, and i just reminded them of what i told them the previous day. They asked if i could go ahead and do the reinstall, and i told them "yes". I got the computer from them, got it home, and backed up all of their data. I then swapped their hard drive with one of mine, just to be certain that i didn't lose anything, and i reinstalled windows 98 for them.

Invalid Boot Diskette Error

I have an old dell 4100 computer with windows xp installed. When my dad reset the power in my house yesterday, my computer brought me to the blue dell start up screen ad then to a black screen with the infamous error message: (paraphrased) "invalid boot diskette. Insert valid boot diskette in a:". I've seen several topics about this online but none of them were useful because i couldn't understand all the computer lingo. I also don't have the disk used to install windows, or any disks for the computer, for that matter. I checked bios, which recognized my hard drive (so i know it's not fried) but it still didn't work when i set it to boot from the hard drive first. Does anyone have a simple solution to this problem i can use on limited resources and knowledge of computers? I have my computer loaded with hundreds of dollars worth of music i would hate to lose, so i can't do anything that would wipe the memory (unless there's a way to back up my hard drive without buying anything or confusing me). This happened once before, but resolved itself after one night. This time the problem seems much more persistent.

Connect Local Area Network ( Ethernet ) With Wan

Can we connect a local area network (ethernet) with wan? Suppose we want to connect a local area network (ethernet) with a wide area network, the question arises is, can we connect a local area network with wide area network?

If we directly connect the lan segment to the packet switch of the wide area network, then obviously every signal on the segment will be forwarded to the switch, to prevent this, can be use a bridge to connect this segment to the network switch (because bridge will only forward the packets if necessary)?

Another question arises is, every wan technology uses a specified frame format, suppose the wan is using a frame format that is different from ethernet frame format then what we will do?

How To Calculate Physical Address ?

Can anyone help me calculate a physical address for a memory location? I know the bus width (bw), segment address (sa), and logical address (la). Memory location #1: bw - 12 bits, sa - a5h, la - 09h

Memory location #2: bw - 20 bits, sa - 2e1h, la - 81bh

The sa and la have to be represented by numbers the size of a register (words) and the final answer has to be in hex.

It gets stuck at "obtaining ip address. " Any ideas?
