Have you ever come across a network issue that says Ethernet does not have a valid IP configuration? If yes, then there is some problem with your network interface card. The NIC is connected to your modem or router through an e ethernet cable.
The problem occurs when it is not able to obtain a valid IP address. A valid IP address is required to communicate with the router and operate on the internet. Whenever NIC or router becomes faulty because of the wrong IP address, then an error shows up.
Mentioned below are the solutions that you can try out to fix this problem. Please make sure that you follow all the steps in the right order.
