After the last windows update both the ethernet and wifi have lost the ability to connect to the internet with the error message "Ethernet/Wi-fi doesn't have a valid IP-configuration". The issue does not exist for my other computer where both the ethernet and the wi-fi works and for my mobile phone where the wi-fi works.
I've already tried several methods to resolve the problem including:
Manually set ip, standard gateway, subnet mask and dns
ipconfg /release, ipconfig/renew and ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset and netsh int ip reset
Tried connecting to my mobiles internet using an USB cable
Running the Network Recovery
Uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers for said networks
Disabling firewalls from my antivirus softwares
Restarting the router several times
System restore to a point before the issue occured.
The only remaining solution I can think of is factory reset which is a last resort in my opinion and would preferably find other ways to deal with it.

For some, this was fixed by enabling DHCP by opening up the Network and Sharing Center and clicked on the "Troubleshoot problem" link.
If that doesn't work, try the following:
You can try to reset TCP/IP if you have Internet connection issues. Refer the link below
