Ethernet doesn't have a valid ip configuration

Ethernet doesn't have a valid ip configuration

Moved stuff around and cleaned up office. Plugged everything back in, but now Windows says...'"Ethernet" doesn't have a valid ip configuration'. Been looking for answers on how to fix it, but the "fixes" I found don't work.  Wifi does work and I can access the router (still can't see connected devices and the "fixes" given for that don't work either), but I'm wondering if it is because I assigned a fixed ip address in the router for this computer. However, as you can see, NONE of my "wired" devices are connecting.  Grrr....

And yes, I've rebooted modem, router, computer, etc a number of times.

 

Anyone have any suggestions?

 

Below are some screenshots of computer information:

Run the Windiows 10 network troubleshooter?

 

Reset the network adapter in Windows?

Just another user.

Re: Ethernet doesn't have a valid ip configuration

Yes and yes. I actually reset router to factory settings and am redoing settings (from screenshots, I didn't want to just load the backup in case that was the issue).

 

Now windows says it doesn't know what is wrong. I even tried what windows said to do as a last resort which was ipconfig/release then ipconfig/renew.

 

Nothing still

 

Since NONE of my wired devices are showing up, I'm now researching that problem.  Hopefully there will be a fix there. Any suggestions while I'm looking, feel free to respond......

   The simplest explanation would be that things are now not connected
properly.  "Plugged everything back in" does not say what is connected
to what.  I see more "Wired" devices than there are Ethernet ports on an
R9000.  An equipment inventory might be helpful, as part of the
connection list.  (N-port Ethernet switch?)

   I'm not absolutely sure what I'm looking at.  (1) Access Control
(showing only wireless devices)?  (2) Complete mystery?  (3) Windows
info.  (4) LAN Setup?

   I'd probably start by pulling all the Ethernet cables out of the
R9000 LAN ports, and connecting one (previously working) Windows system
to one of those ports.  If that works, then the router's probably ok,
and I'd try adding equipment (in some rational way) to that working
configuration.  If not, then output from an "ipconfig" command (Windows
Command Prompt (CMD.EXE) window) might be interesting.

   Not a very useful description of anything.

   Fairly reeks of wiring problem.
