Internet is being used in various ways, on mobile devices, through LAN cables etc. Among these is Wi Fi connection which removes the usage of wires for internet connection.
Sometimes one might face problems while connecting to internet through Wi Fi connection. One of such problem is "Wi fi does not have a valid IP". So, here are some of the solutions that proved helpful to various users and you can also give it a try.


1)  Reset TCP/IP

ii) Enter the following lines in command prompt:
-> netsh winsock reset
-> netsh int ip reset
iii) Close Command Prompt and restart your PC.

This solution has been helpful to most users having issue with IP configuration problem, but if you are using static IP address then you’ll have to set it again. In case, the previous commands didn’t work, you might want to try following commands as well:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew

2) Change wireless SSID and password
This "Wi fi does not have valid IP" issue can also be corrected by changing the wireless SSID and password.
