Getting to be a hard time on here without desktop.

Computer says "no valid I-P configuration-contact network admin"... in this case, MTS.

They say it's a computer problem, and not them.

How to get it back up on line?

Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

-D.S.

How is your computer connected to the network Doc?
What service provider do you use? Bell or maybe Rogers?
What operating system is it?

IPCONFIG /ALL

That will display all your connections.

If you are not getting a valid IP from DHCP you first need to check the DHCP server, or router/switch issuing network addresses. Is it confirmed that the computers network adapter is set to automatically obtain an IP Address? Is it confirmed that other devices are accessing the network/internet using the same router/switch?

Doc, tell us everything about your problem, when did it start, did anything change since the desktop worked, how did you post the question if the computer is not working? The more information no matter how insignificant will help to get you back on line.

Have re-started the modem/router lately?

How are you connected? Wired or wireless?

I'm going under the premises that you have a router/modem/switch with network ports/jacks where your computer and ps4 go into.

What brand is your router/modem/switch? You will need to go into the administration console of that device and verify the configuration. There may be some conflict in issuing an IP to your two devices, the computer and the ps4. A screenshot of those settings would help out a lot. Same with the network settings on your computer.

Ofcourse the simple solution is to unplug the ps4 from it's network cable and see if your connection is restored. The outcome would be very telling.

This is how it should work..

- cable from ISP coming into the house attached to a modem. Modem may be integrated with a hub/switch or modem has a cable attaching it to the hub/switch
- hub/switch configured to log into your account with ISP as per ISP's instructions
- hub/switch configured to issue IP addresses via DHCP
- devices plugged into hub/switch network ports including the computer.

You mean a early version of win10, Win7, or Win8? I do not believe Microsoft released a Win9.

It's a good sign if one device is working.

btw all devices should be plugged into network ports. The DSL port should be for the modem itself.

Could you let us know which brand of modem/hub/switch you are using?
