Fresh Windows 10 won't connect to network

 Share

Fresh install of Windows 10, I have tried connecting to my router via ethernet and using my wireless network adapter. The ethernet itself says "unidentified network" (can't even see 192.168.1.1) and when connecting via WiFi it says connected, no Internet, secured (also can't see 192.168.1.1).

 

Specs:

Intel I7 5820k

ASUS X99-A USB.3.1 MOBO

WNA: Qualcomm Atheros AR938x (PCIE) 

16GB RAM @2666MHz

GEFORCE 980TI

 

Thanks

Reinstall windows... again. There was probably a some installation error that the OS skipped over.

No thanks, didn't mention it but the reason I even installed this new version with a freshly formatted drive is because I had this issue with my previous install of W10 too.

Did you create a new installation disk when installing windows?

Ok, just checking, because if you just reset your PC and used what remains of Windows installation media on the drive, it could have been corrupted, same if it was from the same installation disk as last time.

That new installation disk... From a freshly downloaded copy of the Media Creation Tool or the same one from the installation that first was giving you problems?

Already answered this, fresh install and fresh install media.

Well, you answered the first part.

 

But... OK. So, this problem crops up on some machines at my job for some reason. We haven't tracked down the actual cause but for some reason these machines aren't talking to the DHCP server. What we do to fix is this from the command line.

 

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /renew

 

Yeah, I like to flush the DNS resolver cache a few times because sometimes (just sometimes) it doesn't like to actually clear everything out.

 

If that doesn't work, can you post a pic of what it says when you run "ipconfig /all"?

 

An example from my work machine (yeah, I blacked out part of our domain):
