I am using my windows 8 laptop and I am successfully connected to my router and can access my internet with no problem. I want to get a new ip address. I opened up the command prompt and then typed in

ipconfig /renew

and it gave me an error message saying

Any idea why it is giving this error?

There's no error there.

No operation can be performed on Ethernet while it has its media disconnected.

Those lines at the top are just telling you it can't renew the IP address for adapters that are unplugged and/or disconnected.

There's no error. You have 4 physical network adapters in the computer, 3 of which are disconnected. You can't acquire or renew an ip address for a NIC that isn't connected.
