Preferred Solution: Windows 7 unidentified Network Issue but internet is working fine.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a Win 7 system. Everything was working, until a few days ago, and then the Ethernet connection stopped. The activity LEDs work, but the Ethernet will not connect. The Wifi works fine through the same router as the Ethernet is plugged into.

Here is what I did so far.Rebooted PC (full power cycle)
Rebooted router
MSCONFIG to disable all unknown services and apps
Replaced Ethernet cable
Tried a different port
Confirmed Ethernet driver is latest version
Deleted Ethernet driver anyway and reinstalled
Reset IP Stack
Set TCP/IPv4 to static IP and defined the DNS server
Confirmed the adapter's advanced settings were correct
Connected to a USB Ethernet adapter that I know works (and has worked before on this PC)

Nothing I did in the above list worked - Ethernet does not connect. The activity LEDs are working. The Network Connections shows a plugged-in Ethernet as an Unidentified Network.

Here is the IPCONFIG/ALL

Answer:Unidentified Network Internet Issue

Welcome to SF,

What happens if your try to go to Network and sharing center, under the name of your network connection it should say Public network, then change it to Private or Home, whichever is applicable?

Have you also tried lowering your network Security from WPA2 to WEP? If it works, switch it back to WPA2, see what happens.

Hey guys, I've been trying for 3 days already to fix this issue and I come here with bright hopes you guys an help me. I've tried everything on other sites - resetting modem, uninstalling/reinstalling drivers, disabling/enabling drivers, tried in safemode with networking (internet doesn't work either), system restore isn't working for some reason. Also I've scanned with spyware doctor, avast, ad-aware, malwarebytes and superantispyware and they removed some viruses - now they can't find anymore. I also get this message when I try to open malwarebytes now: "there is not enough free memory to run this program. Exit one or more programs and then try again," which is weird because avast is the only program running :/ Could it still be viruses/malware?

First off, I am using a laptop and cable broadband internet.

The problem is on the bottom right corner, i get the computer icon with the exclamation mark. When I left click it, it says I'm connected to "unidentified network - no internet access"
Now this is weird because I've always been able to connect. All other computers on the router are able to connect fine and even when I put my brothers computer on the same cable as mine, it still works as it says "network" not "unidentified network"

I got an ipconfig /all for you guys (also attached as file):

....... my internet connection is working, but shows as unidentified network (see screenshot).

How do I get it identified ...?...

Answer:Working Internet Connection showis as Unidentified Network

Hi Tommy

The owner of the Network would have to give it a name. It looks like you are using a Cellular network, not a Home Wireless Access point.

I would probably set the Network to Public instead of Private which will change your Firewall posture.

I was on my laptop on Friday and the internet would connect when I turned on my laptop. So I just thought I needed to retype the security key. Nope. So after that I reboted my router. (Sorry for my horrible spelling). That didn't work either. So I came here and saw a number of people had the same problem. I tried every thing pluging my laptop into the router, netsh winsock reset, disable and enable the network.

HELP!!

Hi Guys,
I spent a couple of days on different forums online to fix this issue I have.
My issue is at work. I am not really IT expert but apparently I am the only one who knows a little bit about computers.
So, we have different computers (desktop PC with windows 8.1) and they are all connected with ethernet cable to s switchboard itself connected to our building/office internet.
They are all working fine with access to internet and network. One of them started to not have access anymore to internet.
I can ping the printer also connected to the network but I can't ping any other computers from the network.
The ip address config and DNS are all set up in automatic. I tried to connect another computer to the same socket in the wall and it is still working so the issue is not coming to the switchboard but to the Desktop Config iteslf.
The ip addres automatically configured is completely different from the other ones on the network and when I try to change it manually with the right default gateway, DNS, Subnet mask...it is still does not access internet.
I have noticed that the McAfee antivirus is expired and I thought either the firewall or this fact could be an issue but some of the other computers do have the same McAfee system with sometimes firewall on sometimes not and sometimes expired as well but they still have access to internet.
So, yeah I am a bit lost here and I am not sure what the problem could be as it is a new computer and it was working fine until two days ag... Read more

I am running Windows 7 on my PC but I installed Windows 10 Enterprise as a virtual machine using VMWare Player. My Network Adapter setting on VMWare are set to "NAT:Used to share the host's IIP address". This works just fine when I run Ubuntu VM but
does not work when I run Windows 10 VM.


I tried to select other Network Adapter settings e.g. Bridged etc. but no luck. I am not using a static IP but the one assigned automatically seems to be of a private network I.e. 192.168.#.#


I am not really good with networks. I followed a tutorial online to change the startup types of the network settings but that also did not help.


Conclusion: When I run Ubuntu VM on VMWare player with network adapter settings set to NAT, it works. So I think the problem is with Windows 10 network settings, maybe?

Built a new workstation at work.  Installed windows 7 pro and ran windows update.  All of this done in my "lab".
 
After moving the computer to the workstation, it has no internet access and says unidentified network.  Moved it back to the "lab", and it worked fine.  Moved it back to the workstation and the problem is still there.
 
It replaced an older Dell with windows xp pro.  I connected the Dell back up and it works fine.  DHCP is running.
 
I also grabbed a windows 7 pro laptop and tried the hardwire connection, and I got the same unidentified network with no internet access.
 
Anyone have a experience with this??  This has got me pulling my hair out.

This problem is driving me insane, I swear. I'd fixed it once, but now its back to haunt me and I have no idea what causes it. It's just so random.

I've posted a thread about it here before, but had managed to fix the problem. What I did to get rid of it was:
1. Set "Speed & Duplex" in my adapter properties to a fixed speed (in my case it was 10 Mbit Half-Duplex, the others didn't work).
2. Changed network speed (WAN port speed) in my router from 10/100 Mbit Auto to fixed "100 Mbit".

That seemed to have done the trick and everything worked for 2 weeks. Today I go out for lunch for 30 minutes and when I come back the connection is gone. I reset the adapter - nothing. I've tried all the regular stuff again, reinstalled the drivers etc., reset the router/laptop but it still can't find the network.

It's a disaster as this is my work laptop and I have to be online all the time. What on Earth could've happened while I was out? The laptop was locked (and I always have it locked whenever I leave it) so it's absolutely impossible that somebody had messed with my settings.

I've checked - the router & adapter settings are still the same but for some reason the settings that had worked for 2 weeks don't work now anymore. I'm going mad.

The problem persists in safe mode and I've tried every Speed&Duplex setting now - nothing works anymore. The adapter doesn't seem to be absolutely dead as it recognises the cable, but still can't get on the network.

Ive had this issue with two different model routers, so it`s now leading me to believe that i have an issue with windows 7 somehow.

If i reboot my computer, or turn it on from cold boot, I get the issue (SEE ATTACHED THUMBNAILS)

I can resolve the issue by going into network connections, disabling my
Realtek RTL8168B/8111B Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Adaptor
Then re-enabling it again.

this now seems to sync with the router and all is well.

anyone experienced this issue before or know why it is happening?

Hello everyone,

This is my first post, so I hope I'm doing this correctly. A few months ago, we upgraded our modem/router and got the Cisco DPC 3825. Our internet provider is Cox Communications. We have several laptops in our home and connect to our WiFi with our smartphones fine. However, my laptop is unable to identify this new modem/router. The only way I am able to connect is to be directly connected through a ethernet cable (I think that is what it is called? It looks like a yellow phone cable?).

I'm not very technologically savvy. All I know is that this issue arose after we upgraded to this new Cisco modem-router. Previously, with our old router/modem, I was able to connect to the wireless just fine.

The antivirus software on my laptop is Avast!

Attached is a screen capture of my ipconfig when I am not connected by the ethernet cable, as well as my ipconfig when I am connected (second screen capture). Any help is greatly appreciated.

Edit: Attached is my Xirrus log as well. I hope I am doing this all correctly. Thank you everyone in advance.

Hello guys,

Been looking though several forums now and tried several so called solutions but nothing fixed my problem. So I hope you will be able to solve this problem for me.

Two days ago my connection to the internet went down. I went to look at the router/modem which told me that it was from my ISP's end. I shut down the computer and went to bed. Today I plugged in my new graphic card and turned on the computer and I no longer have a connection. Router/Modem blinks fine and the wireless is working just fine (currently from which I'm posting this thread). This is what I've done so far:

1. Uninstalled Bonjour and every single Apple connected program.
2. Switched back to my old graphic card to test whether that was causing some kind of problem.
3. Deactivated IVP6.
4. Reinstalled Windows 7 (64bit)
5. Resetted BIOS with the pin switching.

....and im still a helpless fellow with no internet on my desktop!

Router/modem: Netgear CVG824G
Network adapter: nForce 650i
Motherboard: Asus P5N-e sli

Hope you can/will help me!

I've been trying to get wireless to work, but consistently get Limited or No Connectivity. I tried googling around and tried quite a few steps, but the only progress I made is to find that it works in safe mode with networking. I've tried disabling the firewall, and eliminating all non-microsoft startup programs.

I know the network and adapter are fine as they work on my other w7 computer. Any suggestions on what to try?

Answer:Unidentified Network Problem, works fine in safe mode

Okay, nevermind. It DOES NOT work in safe mode now. It did the first time, but not since.

It seems you can't get an IP address from the router DHCP server. Did you try factory resetting the router (not just power cycling)?

Also, Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 12-34-56-78-90-AB for onboard LAN I believe. Did you change the MAC address manually before?

Hey all, I found this forum while googling possible solutions to this problem, but with no luck. About a week ago, after getting a new ISP and router, my computer connected fine to the new wireless network (my old ISP was Verizon and we had wireless DSL and my PC had no problems). It went into sleep mode some time later and since then I've been having this nonstop 'unidentified network' problem that I've tried multiple things to fix but nothing has worked so far. It basically drops out the connection and my home network becomes unidentified and doesn't work, and then randomly reconnects and it happens over and over. Sometimes when it connects, it connects to 'NetworkProfile' which seems to be exactly the same as my router's connection so I don't know if that's like a duplicate connection that was made or not. I have no clue.

All I've pinpointed so far is that it's definitely a computer issue. My older laptop (also Windows 7), my iPhone, my dad's iPhone, and even his old Vista netbook can connect with no issues, but with my PC it'll be connected, then some time later it'll disconnect and say the network is unidentified and public. This happens repeatedly. It goes from this:

To this:

I also tried connecting to another network, a hotspot created by my iPhone, and it did the same thing, so it's definitely not my new wireless service. Might be a problem between my computer and wireless networks ... Read more

Hi, i have one bothersome problem with Windows 7 and also Vista

ok, i have 2 laptops one running Windows 7 64-bit and the other Vista 64-bit, for some reason out of the blue both machines stopped getting access to the net and i have this ongoing message saying "Limited Access, No Connection" and/or "Unidentified Network" with the wireless connections.
the strainge thing is, both laptop sees my router but it would not connect...NOW, i have 2 other laptops my old Compaq Presario V5000 and a Dell Insparion D600 both Running Windows XP Pro and they connect to the router and my mom's Dell Mini (running Windows 7 32-bit) that too connects to the router.

i've tried every method possible even googled solutions to find a way to fix the problem but to no avail since i have yet to a straight answer to fix it.

BTW: i dont know if it has to do with teh fact that the 2 laptops are running a 64-bit operating system and theres some incompatibility somewhere...i mean im bout on the verge of giving up on fixing this and just wipe em both out and do a full re-installation as a last resort.

any pointers of how to "properly" fix this network issue?
 

Answer:Unidentified Network/Limited Access or No Connection issue with Windows 7

Hi Shadow,
I had a very similar issue when reinstalling xp pro onto a oldish laptop, again as with you my laptop could see my router but not connect, (a yellow triangle icon)

This is what I had to do perhaps/ I hope, it will work for you.

First I found a bit of free software that does not install but when run will give you all the info you need to know about your laptop, sorry was a while ago just google there is more than one.

This will let you know the exact wireless card you have in your system, then and it took me a bit of time to google and find the right one, download the latest driver for the wireless card.

Now I could connect by plugging a cable in and downloaded the update directly to the laptop in mention, however after running it it still did not work, so for some strange reason I re-downloaded it from another computer, copied it onto a pen drive and ran it from there and it worked.

Finding the correct driver can be a little tireless wading through the oh download and pay for my brilliant driver updater software, but somewhere in the middle of all that crap will be a genuine driver you need.

another option is go direct to the laptop manufacturers website and check if they have the driver's.

Worth a try.

Answer:windows 7 unidentified network, No internet access

Hello UnderPL Welcome to the Seven Forums!

The first method for restoring a working connection would be to shut everything down. Powering off the desktop or laptop, unplugging or switching the router off, and unplugging or turning the modem(dsl or cable generally).

You can unplug the ethernet cable from router to modem while that generally isn't necessary with it unplugged. Once all that is taken care of you wait about a half minute and then either turn on or replug the modem used and allow that to resync with the ISP(Internet Service Provider).

That will usually only take a matter of seconds to see that happen while waiting a full minute will insure that is complete. The next step from there is to turn on or replug the router and allow that to pose as the pc in order to establish a private IP. A new Mac address and IP will then be seen to.

The last step is powering up the pc hopefully having the network discovery box in the internet connections settings checked for automatic discovery. Once you are back at the desktop you then go into the Control Panel>Network & Sharing Center to run the Network troubleshooter if the network icon hasn't already turned from a red X to green by then.

This should automatically detect and apply repair for the active connection that was re-established. You'll know when you see the Home, Work, Public screen appear for selecting the type of network.

Answer:windows 7 , unidentified network, No internet access

Interesting problem.
1. What I would do first is make sure that your DHCP service is running.
2. Next I would make sure that your ip settings (Start -> Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change Adapter Settings, then right click the Local Area Connection you are having a problem with, then select Internet Protocol 4 (TCP/IP 4) and click the properties button just below to the right)
3. Make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.
4. Same for DNS just below that.
5. Click OK all the way back to Network Connections and close that window.
6. Open a command prompt window (Start -> then type cmd in the text window and press enter)
7. At the C:/> prompt (or what ever yours shows) type ipconfig /release (then press enter)
8. When that completes type ipconfig /renew (then press enter)
9. Then type ipconfig to see what ip4 address you have (the 169 addresses are automatically loaded if windows does not detect a dhcp source for an ip)
10. Check to see if your ip address is what is expected from your router/modem or local provider. If not what is it?
11. If not, the next step I would take is to try a system restore, going back to the point closed to, but just before you ran your netsh script.
12. Then repeat steps 1 -> 10. If you do have an expected ip addr. after that, try pinging something like google. (at cmd prompt type ping www.google.com)

Hello everyone!

First post here and hopefully it will be a good one.

I've had this problem now since Thursday night. I literally tried every solution to fix this problem and nothing has worked. Even tried to call Microsoft, Comcast(My ISP), a local technician and they have no clue how to fix this. I even did a fresh install of Windows 10 to see if this works and my problem still persists.

My WIFI works through my laptop, the Ethernet works on my laptop too, but the Ethernet on my gaming PC just doesn't work. If I type ipconfig /release. It works. But, if I try to renew it, it says its unable to reach the DHCP server. Any help would be appreciated! Just ask if you need more information than what I provided.

My router/modem is all in one, provided by my ISP, Comcast. I believe it's called a Gateway.

Answer:Windows 7 Unidentified network, no internet access

Dear Joshyo10!!
I had the same problem but now solved.
Have a look at this: DNS server not responding with No Internet access
Follow as I did..Hope this will solve the problem...

A) What I did first was: RUN a command prompt with administrator access.
START> CMD > IPCONFIG/all
Then you will see physical address of your LAN card and Wireless Card..
1) Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection will have physical address as "D2-7F-55-Q0-M7-57". It is unique address. Similarly,
2) Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection will also have physical address as "00-1W-26-J6-1R-AV".
My wireless network was working nicely but i had problem with wired network.

B) So Next thing I did was, right clicked on
Then START > CMD > NCPA.CPL
Right click on Network Connection > Properties > Click on "Configure.." button > clcik on Advanced tab > Find the Network Address
Under Network address you will find the "Not Present" checked. Uncheck that by clicking the check button in front of a blank box.
In that box put the value as physical address of your network card without dash (for the network which is not working...LAN Ethernet card address in your case) i.e.D27F55Q0M757
I clicked OK and waited for a minute...
And my internet started...
Hope this will work for you as well...
Best wishes!!!

Hi,

I got my comcast internet connection this morning; I setup my wireless connection and its connecting fine with my office computer. Unfortunately personal computer (HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook PC in which Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit SP2 is installed) is not able to connect with the router. I even tried connecting my modem directly - NO Luck. It was connecting for couple of minutes and getting disconnected.

Both my office computer and my iPod are connecting fine with the wireless network but my personal computer is showing Connected (local access only) icon in the system tray. When I mouse over, its showing "Unidentified Network (<network name>"
Is there any way to resolve it?

Hi All

I was wondering if anyone could help me with an issue I'm having with my Windows 7 HP laptop. I've recently moved into student accommodation which requires us to register for the Internet (Studentcom), and when running on Windows 7 my laptop (HP G62-107SA) cannot find the internet connection.

I've tried a number of things to remedy this - disabling Avast Shields, running a Norton Removal Tool (Norton was pre-installed when I first got it but I installed Avast instead as I've never had any problems with it), disabling Windows Firewall as well as the netsh winsock reset command (and a few others - I've been trying since Saturday to no avail so it's no wonder I can't remember some of them!)

This problem isn't just confined to my laptop or my room either - my flatmate in the room upstairs has the same issue - the only way the two of us can get on the internet is by using an Ubuntu 10.10 disc, which is okay but we'd rather prefer to use Windows than have to keep booting up using a CD.

Also, the internet connection occasionally shows as connected (the little icon at the bottom comes up with 'Unidentified Network - Internet Access' generally about 10 minutes or so after we connect, but when we try to use Google Chrome or Internet Explorer to access the internet, we just get error messages (specifically Error 105 in Chrome).

Try resetting your network adapter by right clicking your wireless connection icon in the notification area and click troubleshooting. If That doesn't work, go into device manager and uninstall network adapter and reboot computer. If that doesn't work either then go to HP's website and look for the latest network adapter driver to download and install.

Hello,

I've got a Dell laptop here that isn't functioning properly. I can't get this to work for the life of me! I am currently using this laptop with a different hard drive, it's the install on the SSD that doesn't work. I know that the quick fix would be to simply reload windows, but I don't want the quick fix.

Basically, laptop works with Windows 7 install on a hard drive, no issues. On the SSD, where the ONLY applications loaded are Office 2013 and Firefox (and all the latest updates), the internet does not work (I can ping yahoo.com and get a response, so DNS is fine). The problem persists on IE and Firefox. I have no AV software other than MSE, and the problem persists in Safe Mode w/ networking. The hosts file is clean. The internet worked on the computer just fine when I loaded it, I hadn't used the SSD in a while and when I popped it in, the internet wasn't working. I believe something is getting in the way of port 80, but I can't figure out what. I have disabled all startup applications and all nonwindows services. The computer does not have bonjour. I have cleared history/cookies to no avail. I can't find anything suspicious in the running processes. I can't seem to turn off the windows antimalware process to test that, though.

Any ideas?

Answer:Internet not working, windows update, ping, DNS, etc. working fine

So for some time now I have had intermittent network issue while booted into Windows 10, ping my gateway (router) fine, ping dns names like www.google.co.uk, www.unixmen.com and www.microsoft.com all work fine. Ping my ISP DNS servers fine however if I attempt web browsing or application updates all fail with no internet access.
 
I have tried ethernet and wireless both results are the same across two ISP providers Virgin and BT.
 
If I reboot to Linux and attempt all above I have no issues at all so this is a Windows issue for sure.

I have attempted to investigate this myself and had limited success with Dr Web Cureit! which reported probably DFH.HOST.corrupted but I believed this to be a false positive due to my modification of my host file to limit Windows call home etc.
 
Note: All has been working fine regardless of host mods
 
Anyway I allowed Dr Web Cureit! to fix , rebooted and low and behold all worked ok (this is no longer the case).

This is a problem that has been plaguing me for months. The connection would randomly drop, and only a reset of the computer would allow me access to the Internet. There's no network to connect to at all. The first thing that was done was contacting Time Warner Cable for a replacement of the modem, which did not work. I replaced the ethernet cables with new ones, which also did not work. I replaced the router itself with a Belkin Surf Wireless Router, running an ethernet cable from it to the computer. It still didn't work. I installed a D-Link Ethernet Adapter into the computer and connected to that after installing all the drivers. Still didn't work. We replaced the modem just a few days ago, and the technician from Time Warner also ran some new cable lines into the house. Still hasn't worked.

I run a Vista Home Basic on an HP desktop. The drivers are all up to date. I haven't been able to do anything to get this problem sorted out. Not even plugging the modem directly into the computer is helping -- the connection still ceases to work.

What non-Windows firewall or security suite do, or did, you have on this machine?

Try these pings in a Command prompt window, and you can display the results the same way you did the ipconfig /all.

ping 192.168.2.3 (or whatever your current IPv4 address is)

ping 192.168.2.1

ping 209.191.122.70

Hello,
I asked this question at the answers.microsoft.com, but was advised to try and seek help
here. Here is an explanation of the problem (as I posted earlier):

"I have a Windows 7 x64 Enterprise PC with two LAN adapters on board. 
Adapter #1 is used for internet connection, and settings are obtained automatically.
Adapter #2 was previously used for LAN connection between several other computers through switch and without internet access.
While configuring LAN and Adapter #2, I had issues and was unable to create HomeGroup (because network was considered public and unidentified). To force this particular network to be treated as private I updated some policies (group/user) and successfully
created and used HomeGroup. 

Now, here is the problem itself. Recently I tried to plug in WAN cable into Adapter #2 and it turned out that I was unable to establish internet connection via Adapter #2. The discovered network is Unidentified network without internet access. So, again,
Adapter #1 works fine and I can connect to internet, Adapter #2 with exactly same configuration cannot connect to the internet. 

I tried everything I was able to google. I even reset all group policies to deal with possible misconfiguration of Adapter #2, but nothing helped. 

The only difference I am able to spot is that Adapter #1 properly receives IP address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and connection-specific DNS suffix (which is related to the ... Read more

Hi... I work for a web based wholesale company, and we have been having issues with our network recently, particularly in the office I share with another employee... periodically we would loose our connection to the rest of the network, and therefore the internet, for extended lengths of time(usually from the time we arrived till around 12-1pm... though this week it has been pretty much a constant thing...a bit of an issue, since the other employee I share the office with and myself are, among other things, in charge of updating and editing our website and several sales postings on other websites)... I really have no tech training or experience, but I believe I may have narrowed the problem down... there is one network cable coming into our office, and to split that between the two computers, we have been using an ethernet switch... when we loose our connection, it appears(and remember, I am really just guessing here) that our computers are seeing the switch as an unidentified network, and can't see anything beyond it... when this happens, unplugging the network cable from the switch and plugging it directly into one of the computers allows us to connect with no issue(other than the fairly obvious one of the other computer not having any access)... we have tried several different switches and routers all with the same results, so I am fairly convinced that it is not the switches/routers themselves, but how they are interacting with the rest of the network ...

Oh... and I will add that before, when the network connection came back in the afternoon, we would go from only seeing one unidentified network, to seeing an unidentified network and our "work" network... as soon as that happened rebooting, or disabling our LAN adapter and re-enabling it would fix the no internet issue...

Hey guys, i'm having an issue with my network settings I think, been at it for a few days and I can't seem to figure it out. You see my mom's laptop when connected to the modem, it works fine, but when I connect my laptop it shows "unidentified network - no internet access". I'm not exactly sure what the problem is, but does anyone know how to change or reset the network settings? maybe I can set it to a home network and it will be recognized. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is frustrating me, Thanks.

Answer:Unidentified Network Issue

Usually when this problem occurs it's because of a rogue secondary default gateway of 0.0.0.0 due to some outdated hardware but the problem can usually be fixed by manually inputting the correct default gateway into your IPv4 properties window. The link below shows you how.

Hey,
Had this problem for a couple of weeks now, My internet was working through ethernet and 1 night my brother was internet gaming and I had a couple of torrents downloading when the internet stopped and when we looked at it, Vista wouldn't recognise the network. It names the network as 'Unidentified Network' and I can't connect to the internet. I have since purchased a Belkin wireless G Adapter and that connects to the same router with ease. I have been on the phone to Sky who have been through everything with me and have confirmed that it's Vista at fault. This is the only issue I have ever had with Vista 64 bit, it has never let me down, but this is an issue I could do with resolving, cos the ping we get over wireless isn't good enough for internet gaming. I have refreshed/released/renewed IP and still there is nothing.
Any help with this would be appreciated.

I recently reformatted my Win XP 32bit to Win 7 64 bit.

The first thing that I did was check internet connectivity (wired to a linksys tmobile hotspot router) and it kept telling me that the network was unidentified. I'm currently using my onboard ethernet port, and I have the most up to date drivers installed. I've tried a different NIC card but that gave the same results.

I've tried giving my computer a static ip, but that hasn't worked. Sometimes the router will give my computer a wrong ip address (169.254.x.x) instead of a 192.168.x.x one. Either way, it still doesn't work.

I've looked around the forums and did not have the bonjour service running, I've tried connecting directly to the modem but it still gives me the same issue.

If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Answer:Unidentified Network Issue

Did you try disabling and then re-enabling the network adapter? Or check to make sure the settings are correct in the router and that the router is windows 7 compatable.

It sounds like something with dns.

Hi Guys,
I am currently living in a shared house. A couple of weeks ago the router went down and when it was either fixed or replaced I could connect to it but am getting an unidentified network message. Everyone else in the house can get internet from it and my laptop can get internet when I connect to any other router outside the house.

I seem to have tried every fix I have found on the internet. I have tried the following:

Disabling IPV6 and 4. (also set to obtain ip automatically)

disabling/ reenabling network adapters both wireless adapter and local area connection

Disabling/ uninstalling all firewall software (I didn't have norton which seems to be the problem for a lot of people).

Tried resetting router profiles (I think I did this successfully)

run>cmd> netsh winsock reset
resetting ip protocols through cmd (can't remember the command used)
cmd>ipconfig/renew

Made sure no bonjour services are running in services.msc or processes

and other fixes which don't currently come to mind but were still unsuccessful

The only two things I havn't tried is:
connecting my laptop via an ethernet cable to the router and downloading/ installing any outstanding windows updates (do I have to be connected to the router I am trying to get the internet from when I do this or can it be any internet connection?). I havnt tried connecting my computer directly to the router as for some reason the router is in a tenants room and he is hardly ever here

Hello there; My windows 7 computer was connected to my home's wireless network yesterday perfectly normally. I drove last night to my mother's house and proceeded to connect to her own wifi router wirelessly. Although my sister's computer that's on windows 7 connects ably, and both our iPhones connect, my computer will not. My computer finds the network( it is unsecured without a password if that makes a difference ) connects, receives an ipv4 address in ipconfig, yet does not obtain Internet access. It labels the network as an "unidentified network". If you do know how to fix this problem, please let me know; I will be forever in your debt.

Ipconfig /release tells me "The operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation." Despite having run CMD as an administrator.

Answer:Unidentified Network Error on working network

You just need to re-identify the network with windows.

I got this problem on my laptop Asus u38dt under win8.1 a couple of months ago. It cannot connect to any network either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet (I tried an external USB Wi-Fi adapter as well, with the same result). In case of getting IP with DHCP, the network is shown as Unidentified network with no address assiged (IP is like 169.*). When static IP enabled, the network name is correct. But in both cases, connection is Limited and with No Internet access.
Connection can't be established with any router while other devices connect properly with them, so the problem is on the laptop side.
With all of this, any ping, even to 127.0.0.1, results in General failure.
When booted in Linux liveUSB, network works fine, so it is clearly not a hardware issue.

I tried resetting TCP/IP stack with "netsh int ip reset", reinstalling drivers, reinstalling the network adapter, and lots of other methods and still it doesn't work. Restoring system is not an option since I don't have any restoration point prior to the problem anymore.

Answer:Unidentified network with No internet access

Might not help, but are you using a USB-Network adapter? I just logged in here to mark my similar issue solved as the damned StarTech USB21000S2 adapter drivers were causing all the issues. Got rid of that and used another brand and style of 1Gb-adapter it all worked again.

Hello.
Once every few weeks my laptop will suddenly overnight switch from my normal wireless network to an unidentified network and have no internet access. The other laptop we have is perfectly fine (and what I'm on right now), however that one isn't mine and I would like mine to actually work every once in a while. I've been through a number of threads and tried everything I can, from checking the network security to putting a static IP address to changing the DNS and nothing I can find is working. I also tried the cmd prompts to renew the IP and it still hasn't worked. When it does get fixed, it's after a few hours with no changing, it just randomly goes back to working and I don't know why, but then a few weeks later it'll start doing it again and I have to wait again. I even tried the solution I saw of stopping Bonjour and that didn't help. Any solutions at all are helpful! I need this laptop for work so anything as quickly as possible, please!

Answer:Unidentified Network- No Internet Acess

Outside chance that it is a driver issue, so make sure you have the latest driver from your PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site.

But, probably the NIC or cable is defective. I didn't find the specs for that ethernet adapter, so don't know if it is gigabit or 10/100 Mbps. Remember that the former uses all eight wires while the latter uses only four.

Hi all,

Today has been rough for me since about 10am this morning. I have a PC that I built about 10 years ago that qualified for upgrade to Windows 10 about 5 months ago and until this time, I've had internet access on my PC. I've had some blue screens that occurred a few times a week due to sporadic issues with a windows driver for my NVIDIA graphics card - I found that NVIDIA has no drivers for Windows 10, so I'm stuck with that windows driver. I started my PC this morning to work on some emails at 8:00am and things worked absolutely fine. Than about 10:00am, I had a blue screen "page fault in nonpaged area" - this has happened before, but Windows always recovered without any real harm.

The PC rebooted and then I found I had no internet. I looked at the icon on the toolbar and it had the yellow triangle "!" on it with "unidentified network - no internet access" So I checked my router - a Motorola Surfboard - all the icons were lit, so I checked my laptop(I'm using a laptop now for this) and it was still online without issues. Both my PC and laptop are connected via ethernet cables. I looked on the back of my modem and the port that my PC was connected to was lit - so communication was going on there.

I tried the windows diagnostics - it found no problems. I opened the network and sharing center and it shows "unidentified network - Public network" For access type: No Access - For Connections: Ethernet

You are attempting to connect to a nearby wireless network. If you can't connect it is because the network is secure. There should be a list of available networks. If yours is not showing then you don't have it set up. Do you have a wireless network setup?

Hello

I am new to the forum but have read lots and lots of threads in my quest to solve my issue.

I am not terribly computer literate so please bare with me

I have a new Packard Bell running Windows 7 Home Premium. The tower has been replaced once as although I could initially connect wirelessly to the internet, it became more and more problematic. When the shop checked it they said it was dropping the connection and therefore swapped the tower (charging me for backing up my info to my hard drive) At the time I asked if could be a Windows 7 issue and I was told no.

The new tower connected to the internet for about 2 minutes before dropping the connection and since then I have had the little yellow warning triangle and "unidentified Network - No internet access" message although occasionally it does identify the network but still had no internet access.

Even when showing the unidentified network message, it still shows that the Wireless Network Connection 2 is connected to the home network.

I don't know what information you need, or how to get it but am willing to try ANYTHING you can suggest!

The other computers are all happily connected - I am using my netbook to try to find the answer to the issue.

I have not loaded any of my own info onto the new system as thought it best to sort the issue first. If I can't use the computer for the internet it is pointless me having it and I will return it to the shop!

All helop gratefully received.

Julia

Answer:Unidentified Network No Internet Access

wireless connections are always less reliable than wired

- does the machine have a wired network port (looks like an oversized phone jack)
- can you connect a network patch cable from the machine to your internet router/firewall/network switch? - does it work okay then?

just fyi - wireless networking fails when there is interference or poor signal - that's not something inside your machine, it is an environmental issue

About a week or so ago, my laptop lost the ability to connect to the internet through ethernet. I am running a Sony Intel Core Duo with Vista SP2.

I keep good care of it by doing regular scans with spybot search and destroy, Adaware, and AVG Free 8.5.

I am not getting any error messages and the computer has not been acting up in any other way... just the ethernet. When I disconnect the cable, it shows up as disconnected and when I reconnect it, it connects to Unidentified Network- Local Only. This leads me to believe that it's not a hardware issue but a software issue.

I have looked at the drivers and that all seems to be alright... what could this be? If you need more information, please let me know.
 

Answer:Solved: Unidentified Network- Internet... help me

This is what I get for posting a question without actually doing any of the research first... There are many with this problem and the steps that fixed it are as follows:

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Next, make sure you have the latest driver for your ethernet adapter (probably from your PC manufacturer's web site). If you already have the latest driver use Device Manager to uninstall it; reboot and let Windows discover the adapter and reinstall the driver. (This is in case the driver is corrupted.)
-----------------------------------------
Reinstalling the driver did it. yay.

I have a dsl modem that's wifi capable, wifi works fine on all other devices, however the computer that it's plugged into can't access the internet.

The event log shows error 0x79, your computer was not assigned an ip from the network by the DHCP server.

Currently, my PC can't connect to the internet through the LAN. The LAN says "unidentified network". However, the PC can connect to the internet through WiFi (but very poor connection).

I have a PC that runs on Window 10 Home. And, in the middle of internet browsing, my internet connection was lost.

My PC sometimes lose internet connection, and it is either the router's or poweline adapter's problem. But this time, the router is functioning, cause my phone & PC can access the internet through its WiFi. And, even when I switched to another powerline adapter and ethernet cable, it still can't connect to internet through LAN. So, I am not quite sure what's happening at the moment...

I'd rather have LAN than WiFi, because I need really good internet connection for my online education classes.

Hey guys!
I just moved back home and installed my PC. I have a static ip adress from my isp to connect to the internet using a LAN cable. The internet works fine on my notebook with the static ip's i am posting this through it.
My PC has two onboard LAN cards (P5Q-Deluxe MB), one Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller and one Marvell Yukon PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller. On my notebook i have a similar Marvell Yukon PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller.
I have downloaded the newest drivers from the Asus website, installed them, didin't work, installed the latest driver's from Marvell Yukon Website didin't work either.
The internet has worked properly before on this PC but with 7 x86 i am now running 7 x64 Enterprise (my notebook is x64 home premium). Another thing i should mention is that i coudn't get it to work with linux either, no ping replies.
I have tryied disabling/enabling one card at a time and no success. Could it be a hardware problem, since on my notebook works fine? Could both LAN cards break down simultaneously? I get the same details when typing ipconfig on both my notebook and my PC. If you have any solutions for me i would be very gratefull! What could it be the problem?
Thank you for reading this!

Hello to the list,
I have a problem with a PC of my friend that i had to reinstall the O.S.
When I try to connect to the Internet, cannot connect.

Under the taskbar, where there is the little one monitor that indicates the connection,
I see the blue circle spinning on it, but after a few seconds comes a yellow triangle.
If I put the mouse over it says:

Unidentified Network No Internet access.

The PC has as motherboard ASROCK K8NF6G-VSTA
and as Network card built-in Nvidia GeForce motherboard.
As operating system Windows 7.
As Router Linksys WAG200.
I also noticed that the little lights on the network card are not on and if I try to get into the router
with the IP address does not make me happen. I do not get even the id and password request page.
I'm sure both the router and the network cable are functioning because i use them on my own PC.
I am also sure that the build-in network works because i have tried to take off the Windows 7 and
installed the old Windows XP and it connetcted to the internet also with the light off.
Maybe it could be the network drivers for Windows 7 that i cannot findon the net.
Someone tell me what it might be and how to solve?
Thanks in advance.
Enzo

Answer:Unidentified Network No Internet access.

As per the usual instructions, we'll need to see the results of ipconfig /all. There are times, this problem is caused by something at the router config. I would point a browser at 192.168.1.1 and start checking things like DHCP config, etc,. Are there any other machines on your network? I'd like to see their ipconfig /all as well.

Answer:Unidentified Network\ No Internet Access

What type of DHCP information are you getting from your router. Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all >>C:\ipconfig.txt (that should put a text file called ipconfig.txt in the root of your C drive) open the file and examine the information regarding your specific network adapter, you can edit the file and for security edit the actual line for your physical address, then attach it to your next post

Did a forum search and could not find my particular problem.

I have a small business network (15) running through a Linksys RVS4000 router with DHCP enabled.

One workstation will connect out to the internet upon reboot or disabling/enabling the NIC, but shortly thereafter disconnects. It does, however, maintain seeing all the workgroup PC's and accessing mapped drives. The IP address and gateway are obviously legit when checked.

I have tried most all of the suggestions in other threads with similar issues (ipconfig release/renew, dnsflush, system restore), including restarting cable modem and router, but the darn thing keeps flipping to unknown network and cutting off internet access.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

I just reformatted my hard drive because of network and Adobe problems.

That fixed my Adobe problems, but now my network has a new problem.

My PCI adapter card connects to the network automatically and shows connected, but there is no Internet connection because it cannot identify the network.

I can connect to my home network which does not have Internet, but when I connect to the free WIFI where I am. I can not connect. Before the reinstall, I could connect, but not automatically. Many suggestion were provided by this forum but none of them worked so I could connect automatically. That was one of the reason for the reformat and reinstall.

I can connect to the free WIFI with two of my other computers with no problems. That is why I am sure it is a WIN7 problem.

I tried the diagnostics and it 'fixed' lack of valid IP configuration and the default gateway, but I still can not get connected.

The only way to connect is with my tethered smartphone. At least it works.

I have two computers running Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview Build 9926. One computer is a desktop and it is working perfectly. The other is a new HP 15-F039WM laptop and it came with Windows 8.1 With Bing installed and it also works perfectly in Windows 8.1 mode. I resized the hard drive on the HP laptop to free up 150Gb of space and then installed Windows 10 TP Build 9926 from DVD. It still works perfectly when I use dual boot to go into Windows 8.1. When I use dual boot to go into Windows 10, the network icon in the system tray says "Unidentified network - No Internet access". I did swap cables, etc, but I knew that wouldn't work because the laptop does have Internet access when booting to Windows 8.1.

I read through some threads here after searching for DHCP and connectivity issues and even tried some of the suggestions such as using regedit to look at the network profile. There isn't a network profile. It is displaying a 169... IP Address, so I know that it isn't getting an IP. I tried to manually add the correct settings that work for Windows 8.1 (192.168.0.15 with 192.168.0.1 as the Gateway), but that fails.

IF that doesn't help, try the static address again, but include the following Google public domain name servers

8.8.4.4

The subnet mask should auto fill with 255.255.255.0

Are your sure the subnet for your router is 192.168.0.1

Check the connection status from the Win8.x side to be sure.

Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gtw: 192.168.0.1

If all else fails, power down the router, cable modem (if separate) and PC.

Hello,
I had cable installed on 10/13/13. My laptop has not yet connected to my WI-if, but all my other computers, smart phones, and smart TV's are all connected. I had TWA people out here, called Acer, and Microsoft. No one has managed to fix the problem. Acer wants me to send my computer back to them because they believe it's broken, but I don't because it's connected to Verizon hot spot WI-if from my phone at this moment, and connected just fine to fioptics when I had it. Can any one help me with this issue? Thanks
 

Answer:Unidentified network no internet access

Hi

I hope your computers are wired to the wireless router.
Use one of the cables and connect your laptop to the router with the cable.
Then open a browser window and type http://192.168.1.1(which will most probably be your router). in case nothing comes up go back to any of the computers and lookup the gateway ip address. the gateway ip address can be found by going to command prompt( goto run and then type cmd -just cmd -3 letters)
then in the great black window type ipconfig and read the ip address right next to the one written as gatway.

Now the username and password. If you have it then its great, otherwise 9 out of 10 times the username will be admin and the password will be password or a blank.

Goto Interface setup and then wireless options and then lookup the password that is saved there. as the pre-shared key.
Put in a new one if you like and you are good to go for your smartphone or laptop

I've read multiple posts about this problem but no concrete solutions. My problem is a bit different than the usual usecase.

Win 7 64 bit
Asus p5k se (integrated NIC)

Everything was working fine (a couple of months) until today. The only thing I did was trying to install some extra memory into my machine. That failed (but is a subject for another post). Problem started happening after that, but I find it hard to believe that it the two things have a direct connection.

In my case, the NIC manages to get an ip from the router (this is a direct cable connection, not wireless) and the gateway address is correct. However I still get the Unidentified Network - No Internet Access error. I'll clarify that the IP and gateway info appears on the Details screen of the network adapter. The main status screen shows (among other things):

IP4 connectivity : No Internet Access
I cannot ping my router. It's as if the negotiation phase between the computer and the router goes fine and then nothing. Looking at the DHCP table in my router I can see that my machine appearing there with a 192.168.1.2 IP.

I tried all the usual solutions:

Uninstall driver and reinstall
no DHCP
turn off computer
power off and take out cable
disable and enable adapter

I also saw that some software named bonjoure is blamed for a similar problem but I don't have that installed.

Any ideas are more than welcomed.

Answer:Unidentified Network - No Internet Access

Have you tried clearing the cmos? That will usually get that NIC back in these types of cases.

Hi all,

Today has been rough for me since about 10am this morning. I have a PC that I built about 10 years ago that qualified for upgrade to Windows 10 about 5 months ago and until this time, I've had internet access on my PC. I've had some blue screens that occurred a few times a week due to sporadic issues with a windows driver for my NVIDIA graphics card - I found that NVIDIA has no drivers for Windows 10, so I'm stuck with that windows driver. I started my PC this morning to work on some emails at 8:00am and things worked absolutely fine. Than about 10:00am, I had a blue screen "page fault in nonpaged area" - this has happened before, but Windows always recovered without any real harm.

The PC rebooted and then I found I had no internet. I looked at the icon on the toolbar and it had the yellow triangle "!" on it with "unidentified network - no internet access" So I checked my router - a Motorola Surfboard - all the icons were lit, so I checked my laptop(I'm using a laptop now for this) and it was still online without issues. Both my PC and laptop are connected via ethernet cables. I looked on the back of my modem and the port that my PC was connected to was lit - so communication was going on there.

I tried the windows diagnostics - it found no problems. I opened the network and sharing center and it shows "unidentified network - Public network" For access type: No Access - For Connections: Ethernet

My laptop has been acting odd for a couple weeks by slowing down a lot, a black screen after restart that doesn't load the desktop, things like that. I thought the problem was Avast so I uninstalled it and it worked for a little while. Earlier tonight my printer waswasnworking and I found Avast firewall. I deleted it and the printer worked. After a restart because the laptop froze, this occurred. I have tried many things that I found suggested to fix this and nothing worked. I still have internet, I'm connected on my 2 phones and my tablet that I am using to post this. Any help would be appreciated.

As so many others I've been having problems getting my pc with win7 to connect to the internet. So far I've reinstalled win 7 4 times, each time encountering the same problem, no internet access and unidentified network. The fourth time I reinstalled win 7 I did have internet access for some obscure reason but have lost it again after normal reboot (I did not install drivers/updates or changed settings etc. before this reboot). I tried every trick I could find but none worked this far.

Among tricks:
system restore to the point I had access
setting static ip
setting default gateway to correct gateway
disabling ipv6
changing network adresses on ethernetcardconfig
disabling and re enabling ethernetcard
uninstalling ethernet drivers and having them autoinstalled after reboot
updating driver data
installing nvidia win7 64 bit forceware divers (tried everything with as well as without)
netsh reset in cmd
release ip/renew ip in cmd
changing ethernetcardconfig from auto duplex settings to half/full10 and 100
updating router firmware
resetting router
rebooting pc a gazillion times
system repairs
searched for bonjour service (not installed)
checking dhcp protocol in services (was ok)
switching ethernetcard connections (have got 2 on mobo)
tried switching networktypes (home network/public network)
tried fiddling with network identification
use the troubleshooter (fat help that is, tells me ip adress is weird when it's on auto and suggests finding help by logging onto the internet,... Read more

Answer:unidentified network, no internet access

1) The wierd 169 Ip address happens if your computer cannot see the DHCP server, so it invents something for itself.
2) But in the static ip setup, the ip address is in the normal 192 range. but why is your DNS servers 192.168.0.1? E.g. i use opendns and my preferred and alternate DNS servers are 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 respectively.

Hello.

I've been having a problem for about a year now, my internet connection dropsout at random, then automatically comes back again. I do some online gaming and these random disconnects is a pain when you play. My connection is from a local company, goes through a transmitter a few hundred meters away, to an antenna on my house wall, and a cable to my router. I changed ISP a few months ago, still have the same problem though. Was from a different transmitter and different router. I've tried on multiple PCs in my house, both wired and wireless and the problem persists. Also tried just plugging the cable directly from the antenna to the PC, and i still disconnect. Drivers and all that have been updated for all PCs, did not help. What happens is in whatever program i'm using (skype, ventrilo, online games, surfing etc.) lags, then disconnects and for a second or so the internet icon in the bottom right corner gets a Unidentified Network mark on it, then i'm able to log back in. the whole thing takes about 20 seconds. Also, i run Windows 7 64-bit, but it shouldn't matter.

I've taken some tests at pingtest.net and my connection got an A, my jitter and ping were both below 10, Also had a talk with my ISP, they had not registered any dropouts. They also have IP phones that use this kind of connection and no problem had been reported there. What i think is strange is that i have the problem with two different ISPs. the only thing they have in common... Read more

hello all,

First, I would just like to say thank you for having such a great forum! I seem to have an idea or question about how to fix/ make my systems better and I can almost always find the answer here!

Now for the issue, I have an older desktop computer (7x64 Pro, AMD 3400+, 1GB Ram, Radeon 9800PRO, NVIDIA nForce network adapter-let me know if you need any more specs) which I rarely use and recently lost its wired internet connected. The issue started when I tried to back up pictures from an old harddrive... I was unable to boot with the drive and after fixing that I was able to boot and transfer files using mini xp(Hiren's). I then plugged my good drives into tower and was stuck in startup repair loop. I fixed that and when I booted I had no internet!

I realized that this happened the morning of the DNSChanger (9th?), so I figured this was the problem. I ran: hitman pro, kapersky labs TDSSKiller, MacAffee Stinger, Microsoft Safety scanner, Avira, all found no infection. I guess it is not the issue!? So I moved on but noticed my ipconfig showed no DNS, this seemed like an easy fix.. it's been awhile so I am not sure what order but I did:
shutdown all devices on network and power up only this computer, nothing
reset router, nothing
tested conection using wired laptop and plugging in same cord, laptop worked so it is working
reinstall nForce adapter multiple times, nothing
microsoft fixit, no help
removed all tunnel adapters, Ip6, 6-4 or whatever it had, again nothin... Read more

Hello all,

I'll try to explain the situation as good as I can. After always having a pretty poor wireless internet connection, I finally got an ethernet cable connection. It was working fine, even though I sometimes lost my internet connection while the other members of my family still had internet connection.. but I have never achieved downloading speeds this high before. But today, it showed as an unidentified network and kept showing as unidentified.
I have no idea how to solve this. I searched on google for a fix and found some "solutions", but none worked. So I am back to using the wireless connection and this is pretty much my last hope. Can somebody help me fix this?

Yours truly,

Kokosnootje

So I wasn't thinking one day and I went to change my primary SSID (dunno why) so I did so on the website for my Modem. (Its an SMC) So when I went to get on the internet it wouldn't let me, I thought oh crap. So I went to my PC (the one that wont work is my laptop.) and I changed the SSID back, now when I went to my laptop, it was letting me connect to my Wi-Fi. Which is great, but the problem is that when I plug the internet cord into my laptop, it still doesn't get internet. (comes up unidentified network.)

Answer:Issues with internet - Unidentified network

Hello Kim,

The ipconfig's look ok for both connections.

You might try looking at your wireless connection manager where you can delate the old SSID or create a new one using Windows wireless connection manager. I would also make sure that your router is using AES only and not mixed AEK and TKIP, also set your router to use G and N only.

Also you should uninstall any type of wireless connection software that might have been installed with your wireless adaptor. Let Windows manage the wireless connection and make sure it's set to use wireless N if you have it.

Nvidia Nforce 10/100/1000 ethernet
Cable internet
SB1502 Cable modem

When I try to connect to the internet, it just says "identifying" then says it is an "unidentified network". I've tried:

Resetting the modem
Checked all cables
Uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers
Disabled & enabled the drivers
It's set to automatically connect to DNS
Updating the ethernet with the latest from Microsoft
Ran ipconfig /release and renew
Tried another modem and new cables
Tried other houses with DSL & Cable internet

I installed a USB wireless device which worked when I tested it in wireless areas. But so far nothing has worked for the wired part. At one point before all this started, the internet worked intermittently and would work at other houses perfectly. So I assumed it was my modem or connection at my house. But then I plugged another PC into my modem and it worked instantly. So I know there is no physical problem with my connection, modem or cables.

Answer:Can't connect internet, Unidentified Network

Try resetting your TCP/IP stack by doing the following. Right click the Command Prompt (CMD.EXE) and select "Run as Administrator".

Run the following command netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

please post results of an ipconfig /all command here.

Hello,
I am traveling in South America with my brand new Asus Eee 1005HA-PU17, running Windows 7. I was able to connect to Wifi networks without a problem until 2 days ago, when Windows installed some new updates. Now, when I try to connect to a Wifi network it shows that I am connected, but it also says ?No Internet access? and I can not connect to any sites. I?ve done the troubleshoting over and over with no success. I can see that other people around me are connected to the internet with thier laptops. I don?t know what to do. I?ve attached a screen shot.

Please help,
TJ

Answer:Unidentified network, No Internet access

Go to the update panel and look at the previously installed updates, get a shot of what you installed so we can see what you did.
