Ethernet does not have a valid IP confguration


Ethernet does not have a valid IP confguration

Okay so, I was trying to plug in my Netgear (using ethernet only, I have ATT fiber if that helps) But I keep getting Unidentified Network error, and when I diagnose, it says Ethernet does not have a valid IP Configuration. Help will be appreciated.

Re: Ethernet does not have a valid IP confguration

You have posted your message in the section of this community given over to Mobile Routers, Hotspots & Modems. (This is easily done, given Netgear's impenetrable community structure.)

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers about your hardware, in the appropriate section for your device. That's probably here:

Nighthawk WiFi Routers

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.


Visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware.

That page will also have any software, firmware and drivers for your device, if they exist.

Look for the model number on the label on the device.

Begin with the Quick Start/Installation Guide.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

Just another user.
