    Doesn't have a valid IP configuration


    Hello all.

    I've been having the above issue at different times and it is getting a bit irritating to restart the modem(router).

    How can I permanently fix it so that my internet can be online 24/7 without me having resetting the box?

    And how come it says that I have no IPv4 connection but IPv6 does have a connection?

    It could be that IPv4 DHCP is not enabled on the router.

    Well it is enabled and the thing is that when this happens, I can access the internet with my phone through the wifi.

    The Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.213.190(Preferred) line suggests that the computer is expecting a DHCP address but is not able to receive one. Did you previously set up any hardware mapping in the router? Are you using a proxy server or have the proxy setting enabled on the computer? Ping your local IP address 127.0.0.1 and see if there's an error.

    I don't even know what hardware mapping is so I guess it is a simple no.

    And pinging the 127.0.0.1 goes through without errors.

    But I'll have to remember to test this when the error happens, for the moment it hasn't happened. Not yet.

    Maybe disable IPv6 on your router, or on the network adapter in the computer?

    Uncheck the IPv6 option.

    Just did it, now I guess I'll have to wait and see.

    Interesting indeed, I have two local area connections enabled and on one of them I have ipv4 on the other I don't.

    I don't understand both are connected to the same box, one is a pci adapter the other is the motherboards one.

    Maybe one of my ports are not compatible with Windows 10? I mean I highly doubt it.

    Oh and another thing, while it happened I couldn't access the setup for the modem/router, I don't know if this means anything just thought I would shout it out.
