'Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration' error message in Windows 7/8 and network not working

Sometimes Windows 7 or Windows 8 network connections seem to have simply stopped working and the following error message appears:

"Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

To solve this:

  1. open command prompt (cmd.exe) as administrator
  2. run these two commands:
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew
  3. restart your router
  4. restart your computer
  5. your network connections should be working again.

Hope this helped you, too :)
