Lenovo T440 - Network cable not detected / Unidentified Network

Question: Lenovo T440 - Network cable not detected / Unidentified Network

I've spent hours looking everywhere for a fix, but unfortunately without success. I have a Lenovo T440 (clean Win10 Installation over DVD) where the connections over Wifi works but not with the network cable.When I connect the Network Cable to the Lenovo T440 there is the message "Unidentified Network". No internet access. The Network cable connections is working on several other machines, just not with the Lenovo T440. Im also not able to boot over network. All devices on the machine are up to date, except:In the device management, there is shown the following device with error "Intel(R) Active Management Technology - SOL (COM3)" (Device status: The device can not be started. (Code 10). Any suggestions what could have caused this issue?Thank you!

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.

Hello,If there is somebody who could help me with this issue, I would really appreciate it.I have recieved at work a lenovo t440 notebook, everything worked fine, untill one day I noticed that I cannot conect to the internet via lan cable. I plug in the cable and it is not detected. I checked the cable to another notebook and it was working. I have a Intel Ethernet Connection I218-LM controller, I have re-installed both network drivers from lenovo and intel websites and nothing helps. I've tried as well to get automatically from windows update, no result. Went to bios cheked if the lan connection is enabled, everything was in place. Is there anything I missed? I noticed a weird behaviour, if I connect through wireless network, after sometime the lan connection is established and I can use it, but without wireless connection it doesn't work. Any suggestions what could have caused this issue?Thank you,Mark

A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken

Have been receiving these messages almost constantly on my windows 10 Lenovo g500 amid almost continuous wi-fi disconnected, If anyone ca help at all, I'd be immensely grateful. The troubleshooter resets the adapter, but that only works for 30 secs sometimes.

I ran a Ip config if that helps at all, and will perform any other actions needed. I'm really not that immersed in PC diagnostics, so all help is very ,much appreciated!

Hello everyone !! I know I know.. you've heard that before !!

Me too !! My wifes computer has had that issue many more times... But usually a simple reboot, disabling and reenabling and reboot.. would usually solve the problem...

This time though it has buffled me, for a couple of days...
Let me tell what I've done..

I actually have done all that I could find on the internet.. namely :

1. Rebooted the Computer.
2. Enabled and re-enabled the driver.
2.1 Rebooted the modem and switch
3. Looked for that ##.... service that a lot of people mention on the internet... (I don't have it)
4. Installed the extra service on Ipv4 for multicast networks...

A pretty odd problem, my attempts to connect me and my girlfriend's laptops together for some LAN gaming with an ethernet cable has had some odd problems, with my LAN connection showing up as an Unidentified, Public Network which I cannot edit in any way whatsoever. I'm at a loss. I've tried setting a static IP and it didn't appear to help at all.

Answer:Ethernet Cable showing as 'unidentified network'

Relevance 87.74%

I have a problem with my internet that makes absolutely no sense to me. I recently bought a new ethernet cable because my old was...well...kinda old and it had some wires popping out. I plugged in the new cable and all of a sudden it won't give me internet access. Instead it just says stuff like Local area connection 6, unidentified network, no internet access. I thought maybe I got a faulty cable, but I plugged in my old one and it still says the same thing. I can't even fathom how this is possible. All I did was change out ethernet cables, it's not like they change the settings on my computer or modem.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Connecting w7-w8 using a crossover cable - unidentified network problem

Hi,

I've copied content back and forth between my W7 pc and laptop many times using a crossover (twisted) cable without any problems.

But suddenly when I plug in the cable both W7 and W8 machines display "unidentified network". Ethernet.

When I run diagnostics on the W7 pc I get, "Your computer appears to be correctly configure but the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding".

When I run diagnostics on the W8 laptop I get, "Ethernet doesn't have a valid IP configuration".

I use a Vodafone stick/pen to connect to the Internet and am not trying to get both of them online simultaneously, although I have done occasionly by bridging them.

Any help would be much appreciated.

To summarize: Telus replaced a non-fuctioning Modem/Router hybrid, and now I my computer unable to connect to thr Internet. Frustratingly both the wi-fi and the other computer connected through an Ethernet cable can connect no problem.

I tried uninstalling the Networking Adpter's driving and then reinstalling them, resetting the txp/ip setting woth Microsoft's Fixit program, forcing a registery alteration to force into it seeing the connect as a work connection instead of a public one, and went into the Neteork Adpter Propeties and into thr IPV4 setting to change the adresses listed on my router's config page. None of this worked. At this point, I'm tempted to reinstall the OS to try and resolve this.

Would someone happen to know a solution to the problem that haunts me so? Thank you.

Edit: I also bridged the gateway to a different router and ran the connction through that: Still no luck on my computer (the other one works fine, however).

Hi Paul,
I am on a private wireless network, name showing in notification area.
Problem 1:
A week or two ago, an unidentified wireless network suddenly appeared in the notification area. Name of the network is Vortex.  No response when I click or right click on it, to 'forget this network'. Drop down menu connect automatically is ticked-
when I remove tick-- it returns.  When I click connect, window opens prompting for a password.  Often when I want to check if its still there it is there momentarily and then disappears altogether. I have no path for this 'rogue' network, so cannot
search for its location on my PC, so there's no way I know how to remove it.  I have a very stringent antivirus, malware application and also use Malwarebytes to remove infections and spyware. However, I searched online for this Vortex network and it
seems that it is malware-- however, after full scans of my PC, with both my internet security app and Malwarebytes, this Vortex network still appears in the network notification window below my private network server.  How do I remove it?  And what
settings should I temporarily activate in the Network and Sharing Center in order to view all networks on my PC in Command prompt?   This network can surely not be a neighbour's network-- as my connection settings are very private.  I cannot block
it with Firewall, because no path is available to do so. I have a feeling this Vortex may have been bundled wi... Read more

I can't get my network card to work when plugged into the wall. The computer detects the card and all but I can't get it to detect the lan cable, and the card doesn't light up. At first I thought maybe the cord port was jacked but I was messing around with it and at one point my laptop and the PC/network card were connected and it lit up. Can't get internet that way of course. I can also get it to work from PC to PS3, I can successfully transfer files through FTP.
What's going on?

By the way I'm at a university. There's no modem or router for me to reset or anything like that. And yes the actual cable works, and so does the walljack I'm connecting from, they both work with my laptop. I've tried plugging and unplugging, using different cables, resetting the cmos, doing a system restore point, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, no changes. It's a brand new card, and it never worked.

I mean it would be one thing if it at least detected the cable and the internet didn't work, but for it to detect the cable when plugged into anything except the walljack when I know the walljack works, the cable works, and the network card works to at least some extent... I've never had a problem like this before. I could reinstall Windows 7 but, I dunno, I have a feeling that won't work.

No problems are detected in the device manager. ipconfig /all gives me a media disconnected for everything.

I was going crazy trying to figure out WHY every time that I booted up my computer (or rebooted) running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit that an "unidentified network" --a public network--would appear along with my normal home network as a local
area connection, and, until I would disable the unidentified network and then reestablish my home network (both would become disabled) by using the Microsoft troubleshooter and fixing the problem "as an administrator."  I didn't want to have
to keep doing this every time that I booted up my PC, so I called AT&T (since I have an AT&T modem/router for AT&T U verse internet and TV service) and all they could do was send me a new router--which I did NOT want to have to set up and then
reestablish wireless links with al, of my wireless things like my printer, my Roku on my TV, etc.  SO, tonight I used Google and, on this Microsoft technet site I found the answer!  Someone named Lars Tornquist stated that all one had to do was to
go to Start menu, type in "msconfig" and then go to the System Configuration box that pops up, go to the Services tab and uncheck "##Id_String1.6844F930._1628_".

I've freshly installed Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit on my system that previously had Ubuntu installed, and prior to ubuntu had win7 ultimate installed. With the fresh install of win7, I receive an unidentified network/no network access issue.

Heres a list of things ive tried:

- reset the network adapter
- restarted the modem and the router
- messed around with homegroup
- reset tcp/ip
- tried connecting to a specific ip/dns/default gateway (which i retrieved with a laptop)
- ip /release /renew although i wasnt successful


Ive tried almost every single thing I could find on google. Nothing works. I connect fine on ubuntu and I connected fine on ultimate.

I havent tried installing drivers though. Because I cannot access the internet on that machine to install those drivers. Help is much much appreciated as I am tired of ubuntu.

Thanks,

Answer:Fresh install of Win7 *unidentified network/no network access*

Welcome to the forums bietzshe,

I don't know much about 7 Enterprise, but I imagine you would need to install the Lan/Network drivers for your Motherboard.
Is your motherboard the P67 FTW? Do you have a driver CD for it? If not then you will need to head over to EVGA - EVGA Download Center find your motherboard from the drop down list and download and install the Network driver there.

I had Windows Vista and everything was fine, today I decided to use my free Windows 7 upgrade and I can't connect through my router. It started when I downloaded Windows 7 and I went to connect and it showed my network it said "Unable to connect to "network"". Then after a little why, it didn't even show my network their at all. It just said "Unidentified Network, No network access". I've tried nearly everything, I'm connected now through the modem, but obviously I want to fix this situation with my router so I can connect through my router.

Also, every since I got Windows 7, I can't go to my routers IP address at http://192.168.1.1 - it just won't open the page. I was going to reset all router settings to default but it wouldn't let me access it.

I did read a lot of the other threads on this subject, I've tried Disabling then Enabling Local Network Connection, didn't work. Please help me guys.

Answer:Unidentified Network - No Network Access, since downloading Windows 7

This problem usually has to do with a secondary default gateway in the Windows 7 network adaptors Ipv4 settings. The link below shows you how to fix that problem.

Hello 7Forums.

I'll start off with the scenario that brings me here.

Today, I managed to redecorate my bedroom; where my computer sat on top of a shaky, wooden desk. That desk is now gone, caput, and replaced by a much bigger, sturdier and prettier glass replacement.

Before I dissasembled the computer to re-decorate, I was able to browse the internet at ease. There were no problems at all...

However, after the new desk was setup - and all wires replaced in their correct slots, I find that I am unable to connect to the internet, or even the house's network! For the past year, I have been wired to the router using a RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC. It was plugged into an extension cord, in my room, into the Ethernet port in the back of my computer. Downstairs, it's twin was situated no less than 2 feet away from the router - plugged into the first port.

Now, when I boot up the computer, the network notification presents the following message: "Unidentified Network. No network access", and sometimes presents a yellow ! next to it. So, I am reduced to typing on my mother's laptop - which has no problems connecting to the network.

I am able to use the ipconfig /release command, but unable to use the /renew - it hangs in the command prompt, then tells me that the DHCP server cannot be located. The IP, beforehand, was reverted to 169.254.223.117 - before all of this, I was 192.168.0.5

Answer:Unidentified Network; No Network Access - Powerline Adapters

The router itself would present you with a new Local Area IP, thus the prefix of 192.168.0.*, so I can almost guarantee that it's not your computer acting up. Personally, I'm not too sure on why or how it gave your computer the middle-finger, but it seems to be the culprit..

I'd try resetting your router back to Factory Default settings (Unplug its power source for about 5-10 minutes), plugging everything back in, and seeing how it goes from there.

EDIT::

Also, when you get the chance, I'd check to see if there are any available firmware updates for your router... just saying. Hope all is well mate.

For some time now my internet would be fine for 1hour after booting up my computer and then the network would then fail to be recognized. I have followed multiple tutorials on the internet, with countless suggestions, where other people have had the same problem. Some seem to fix the problem for a short time and then it comes back a week later.

Currently I am having to use my phone to connect to the internet.

Any changes I have made to try and fix it I have reversed. Except when I formatted my PC to try and fix it but again was only temp fix.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Willing to remote if needed but do not know how good the connection would be through my phone.

Many Thanks

Hello all,
I have tried all the similar solutions to my problem but non eworks.

I have just installed WIndows 7 Home 64bit.
Wireless works (slooooooow).
The cable from my Billion router/modem is recognised but does not work.

In network and sharing centre I can see Wireless as Home Network and cable as:

Unidentified network - Public Network (no link = can't change it).
The 4 TCP/IPv4 is set at automatic. Even if I put the Billion default address 192.168.1.254 and subnet and gateway nothing.

Tried going into ipconfig and it gives me a 169.254.176.23 (=no internet connection then, but I knew that).

The wireless IP is correct at 192.168.1.2

From what I have understood from all the fora I have to change the network from Public to Home.

How do I do it?

I would be very grateful for any sort of help.

Aight, let the fun begin.

When I turn on my computer, I roll some dice to see if my internet is going to work. If I role anything besides a 0 my internet doesn't work. It starts with trying to identify a public network and continues to try to identify it for hours on end. I have tried many solutions, spent hours on the phone with HP customer support, linksys router support, my internet company (time warner cable), and many other chat sites which as you can see since im here, have had no success.
On my network: Vista and XP computer as well as a Xbox 360
(I've tried every combination on the network to see if something unplugged would fix the problem, no success) The best part is when my Vista computer is connected to the internet sometimes, my xbox360 cannot connect to xbox live. When I unplug the Vista ethernet cord or disable the internet connection my 360 suddenly can connect to my router and the internet flawlessly. (There are no conflicting IP addresses on my system, I already checked for that)

Identifying Public Network:
Solutions to try and fix this:

Hi, i have recently made hardware changes to one of my computer. the build now looks like this:
AMD - x2-7750 black edition
Mobo - M3N78-VM

I formatted the drive and a fresh install of windows 7. When the computer starts up for the first time, all the drivers install properly but in the bottom left, i have a message saying: unidentified network - no network access.

I have searched around online for possible solutions and here is what i have done so far:
- uninstall network driver and restart computer
- made sure my internet protocol V4 is set to obtain ip automatically
- reinstall windows 7
- installing drivers for m3n78-vm manually

I have 4 computers on this router, none of which needs the network connection to be set up with setup wizard. This computer wont connect though. I'm all out of ideas as to why.

Hi everyone

I have recently installed windows 7 (64) and wanted to put more RAM in. I started off with 2Gb and added 1 Gb of ram to make 3Gb (No problems Here). I then added another 2Gb of ram bringing it up to 5 Gb (Now the fun begins!)

Windows 7 runs fine and I can play games with the 5Gb...but... I can't seen to get on the internet! It comes up saying unidentified network! I take out the 2Gb and everything is ok again and i can get back online and everything.

I was told to make sure all my drivers are updated which I did and they are all up to date.

Please help, does anyone have any answers??

Well i had the problem when im doing the ICS between a computer with internet (win7) and a computer with ethernet cable (Winxp)
When i unplug the cable or the other computer restart or whatever i get the message of "unidentified network" "internet innaccesible", "no Network Access" etc.
I know is a kick in the balls and its so hard to know what is the problem cuz is a little bit tricky, i have searched everywhere and nothing helped me out, i tried bridged, updating drivers, disabling/enabling parameters, disabling firewall, editing gpedit etc, it was driving me nuts just watching the "Public Network, Unidentified Network"

I have tested and i did the next config doing lots of trial and error
Worked perfect for me.
I hope it helps you out too guys.

Do the steps in the next order:
Both computers in same Workgroup.
Both computers with bonjour disabled or deleted.
In CMD delete route 0.0.0.0

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.

Hi everyone. A few days ago my computer was infected with OpenCloudSecurity spyware and after multiple virus/spyware scans I finally got rid of it. Unfortunately sometime during this my Toshiba Satellite laptop stopped connecting to my WiFi. I know it's not the router or modem because my phone and my brothers laptop (the one I'm using now) still connect fine. I even tried connecting it directly to the modem. I've searched up and down on different forums on the net for fixes and tried many of them unfortunately to no avail. Usually when this stuff happened I would just restore my system. Upon trying, to my disappointment: no restore points! Damn! I tried fixing my registry with WinASO. Rescanned with my virus scanners. Disabled and Re-enabled the Network card. Reset the ipconfig setting under command prompt. I'm at a loss at this point and it's been going on a week that it hasn't connected. If anyone could help me you'd be a life saver. Thanks a bunch.

Hi there,

I noticed there was another front page thread that was a similar problem to this, but I didn't want to hijack the thread.

A few days ago after having my PC (Windows 7) turned off for about 10 days due to not having a monitor, I turned it on and suddenly was experiencing the little yellow triangle over my LAN connection in the windows tray. It says Unidentified Network - No Network Access. Im using a wired connection to the router which is a Belkin and I haven't had any issue like this in the 2 years i've had this PC.

I have tried a few fixes that I found online but haven't had any luck and it has me completely stumped. Im posting this off my MacBook Pro which is wireless and isn't having any problems, nor are any other wireless connections in the house (iPhones, PS3 etc).

I have AVG free installed on the PC. I would post /ipconfig results on here but im not sure how to do that because I have zero net access on the PC.

Thanks in advance for any help given

My server has several NICs, some of them are on what I call the external network (publicly routed, internet access) and some are on the private network.

The NICs that are on the external network show "Network" in the status under Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. The private network shows "Unidentified Network".

Is there any way I can change that so that the NICs connected to the private network actually show something other than "Unidentified Network"? What I would like them to show is anything but so that I know they are connected to the private network as the "Unidentified Network" status also shows up when the NICs are plugged in but simply not connected to any network due to server side or network side misconfiguration.

I am using a cablet connection with my Zyxcel P2602 HWT modem. The modem/router is provided by my internet provider. It also supports a wireless connection.

When i start my computer both the connections is fine. After a while though the cabled connection is said to be unidentified. It works as a local connection, but has no internet access. When i run the diagnoses for the connection it again recognize the network and its working fine for a while until the same happens.

I tried upgrading the driver without luck. The version now says Atheros AR8121/AR88113/AR88114 PCI-E ethernet Controller (NDIS6.20
Driver date: 11.06.2009

If there is information needed ill be happy to provide.

Answer:Network problem - Unidentified cabled Network

Hello DonkrDjay, welcome to SF!

As a test, can you check what IP number your router gives you (through its DHCP server i hope) when it works well?
Then when it stops working... is it still the same or did you get a totally different IP for your PC?

Second, if posible, could you post snips of your router DHCP settings?

Hi everyone, quick story to detail my exact problem, though this thread showed the same problem with no working solution for me:

I installed Win8 on a separate partition (use Win7 Ultimate x64 normally) and was using it. It worked fine. I connected my iPhone to charge it when the phone automatically activated a tethering app. This instantly switched my wired network connection to the USB connection, which I immediately disabled. As soon as I did that my wired connection (my hard wire internet, not the tethered iPhone connection) stopped working and showed the network only as "Unidentified network). Thus the error.

Now I followed all of the instructions in the previously linked thread. I even reformatted my hard drive, to no avail. Microsoft support wants me to pay (not gonna happen). Furthermore, I know it isn't a router or actual network issue because my desktop is the only machine with that problem. My xbox 360 was streaming TV over the same network when it all occurred, and it is doing so as I type this. I switched the cables, obviously rebooted multiple time, the whole nine yards.

What makes it worse is every time I try to diagnose the problem, Windows just tells me to reset my router. I even tried that, but obviously it didn't work. After every reboot my IP changes back to a 169 address (169.254.65.16). Every time I manually set it, no change. It seems like no matter what I do it won't get fixed.

The only thing Microsoft support said I should do is sear... Read more

Answer:Unidentified Network error for home network

It sounds like your machine is having a hard time picking up the router. The 169 address is what you get when the router isn't being picked up by the machine. It's like a generic IP that Msoft uses when nothing is available.

You also take your chances plugging anything Apple into a Windows PC, seems to be when the problem started. That is what the entire Bonjour fiasco is about.

Have you tried updating the firmware on your router because something doesn't seem right there.

Updating the drivers might also be good advice. You haven't listed any system specs so I can't do that for you.

If all else fails you could try typing your default gateway from your router into your IPv4 settings window. The link below shows you how.

Hello,

I have a BT modem which incorporates a wireless modem and 4 switches for hardwiring via ethernet.

I have had to set up a long ethernet cable because the wireless signal does not reach. The ethernet cable is less than 100 m. (About 30m).

I know that the ethernet cable works properly. I know that the modem receives the internet becasue I can connect to it wirelessly via another computer (laptop).

I also know that the wireless modem requires a password.

When I connect with the ethernet cable and bring up 'Network and Sharing Centre'. I find that I get 'Unidentified Network' (Public Network). When I try repairing with Windows Network Diagnostics this does not solve the problem.

Any ideas?

Nevica

Answer:'Unidentified Network' in Network and Sharing Centre

If you are trying to setup a Wireless connection then the logon name and password must be EXACTLY the same as the original setup.
If you can position the receiver( the comp) close to the sender( router/modem) then when it is up and running you will be able to see how strong the signal is. Then when you move the comp to where it is going to be used you will see how much drop off you are getting. If you are getting substantial drop of in signal strength then look around for how to improve the signal .
NB. Signal strength can be affected by moving the Modem as little as 25mm.

I have 2 different laptops. both running Windows7 and connecting to the internet wirelessly. within a few days of each other they both began to display "Currently connected to: Unidentified network No network access" and they will not let me get on the internet. It is not my router becuase It shows the same thing no matter where I try to connect. I have tried my gym and a local restaurant that I have always had success connecting to before. Furthermore my WindowsXP desktop is directly connected and is connecting to the internet without any problems. My laptops are both running AVG for antivirus. Any ideas?

Answer:LENOVO B5400 - cable network dissapear

Hi Przem,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Firstly, confirm whether Network card is a Wi-Fi card?  If right click on it, then Properties, then Details, what are the Hardware IDs?  That should help confirm what device it is and hopefully help find the right driver.
 
I hope this information is helpful.

Ok so have a Dell Inspiron laptop that is running on Windows XP and I am unable to connect to the internet. This happened a little over a week ago suddenly and everything that I have tried has been unsuccessful. I connect to the internet through an ethernet cable that plugs directly from the wall to my computer, however I cannot get internet because my computer is telling me that a "Network Cable is Unplugged" when it clearly is still plugged in. I have tried using different cables and in different rooms of my apartment, and yet I still have the same problem. My other roommates are not having any issues so this lead me to believe there is probably a problem with my computer. My computer skills are on a basic general knowledge basis so I have no idea how to begin to attack this problem. Strangely enough, in my attempts to get on the internet, I turned on my wireless connection which displays a full connection in the icon at the bottom of my screen at good or excellent quality, yet when I open firefox or explorer (the browsers I use) I still have no internet. I am not sure if this is an indicator of the same problem I am having or just a separate issues, but I am in desperate need of help. So please if you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them.

First time here and hope somone can help. I know this issue has been raised before and does appear with SOLVED attached to it - but they do not work for me.

History - Windows 7 machine that has worked perfectly through a netgear router since windows 7 first came out. Switched it on three days ago and it would not connect. My wifes XP and a laptop using XP connect - no problems whatsoever.

So far I have tried all the fixes that have been listed in these forums with no success. So as a last resort I have done a clean install of windows 7 and still have the same problem - Unidentified network.

I have disconnected the other pc's on the network and have reset the Routers status back to its original settings and then tried to 'Set up new connection or network' but the system will not find the router. (I have already checked the ethernet cable and swapped it with a new one). So here I am on a laptop wondering whether to throw my computer down the nearest mineshaft,

I have noticed that when I tried to enable/disable the network adaptor - a Nvidia nforce networking controller which is an onboard LAN on my Asus P5N-E sli motherboard - it 'hangs' or becomes unresponsive which means I have to power down the computer and re boot. I have 'flashed' the bios on the motherboard and still no joy.

- My router, modem and the d-lan devices are functioning properly which I have tested multiple times so I'm sure the problem lies with my computer.
- I have tried Troubleshooting with no effect
- It isn't an IP conflict
- It isn't a 3rd party program (I started it in safe mode, same problem)

Hello Syntic, and welcome to the Sevenforums!

You might look through this tutorial and see if anything helps you out: Troubleshooting Internet Explorer Issues

Failing that, try downloading (perhaps to a USB drive from another computer) your Ethernet LAN driver from your motherboard's manufacturer (You haven't listed it in your specs othewise I'd link you). Don't install it until you completely remove the previous driver. Then, install it.

Hello Guys,

So my office PC keeps going to unidentified network and I have to disable and enable the network adapter for it to get an IP address and connect back to the network. I'm using a LAN connection not wireless by the way.

I have not seen this issue on any other computers/laptops on the network, only on this specific system so I'm thinking its not a problem with my DHCP or anything.

Any other information required please let me know and any help in fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Answer:Network adaptor keeps going to 'unidentified network'

I don't see it often but usually unplug the Ethernet cable, use Device Manager to Uninstall the NIC/Network Interface Card/adapter, reboot and let the computer find the NIC and install it. Sometimes it's necessary to get new/fresh drivers for the NIC.

Hi, I've had this for some time, but I rebooted my PC to get a message on the right side of my screen (Windows 8) asking me if I'd like to join some network. I stupidly clicked it without actually thinking about it (I had previously actually tried to connect my Windows 7 laptop to my desktop and failed and was thinking this was that). But after clicking yes I had second thoughts and wondered exactly what I had accepted. Did it open my PC/Internet to hacking or something? I've attached a pic of my Network Connections and Network Sharing Information (with personal information blacked out). Have I done something silly? Is this dangerous? If so, how do I undo? And what's with the Network 3 thing? Why isn't it Network 2? My internet works fine (with the occasional hick-up, simply requiring fixing with the usual tools). Are there any problems? Should I be worried?

Anyone? I've seen posts regarding how to make it private, but not posts explaining whether it is a problem or not, and why. I want to know whether it's OK or whether I should actually follow instructions to make it private.

Hi, i've been a having a hard time now because of this problem. Here's the scenario. I was playing a game and suddenly, it crashed and hanged up while playing, my ping greatly increased and came back to normal but the game still hanged up, and eventually, i had to reboot my computer. After rebooting, this problem came. My internet connection became "Unidentified Network, No Internet Access" with an "!" on it. I've tried researching and did some of those referred solutions to me and did not fixed my problem. What do you guys think is the problem?
I've already tried some of the solutions like, reboot the router, reboot the internet, tried cleaning the whole system, even added the protocol in my IPv4 protocol the one that is stated right here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9epRBi6kF-o
I am really frustrated now and been searching for like 7 hours of how to solve this problem
I am just a student and really don't know what to do, and i really need my computer to access internet because of so many things to do.
With just a crash in my computer, this eventually happened

I've seen this error a lot of places and I've tried all kinds of router/modem resets and registry edits to fix this issue, but I can't make any progress.

I have an ethernet cable running under the carpet about 60 feet from the modem going into an extension cord into the modem. Barring the extension cord this setup was working just fine three days ago. The only thing that's happened since then is we've had new carpet put in, and the guys who did it didn't leave enough cable on the modem end to reach the modem, so I had to get an extension cord.

During this time the modem and the router I use in my room were both unplugged for a full day, but other than that I can't think of anything substantial that's happened here.

The error I'm getting is that the network is showing up as "Unidentified Network, no network access". Messing with the registry, I've gotten it to identify this as a Private network, but that hasn't helped at all. Below is the result of running ipconfig /all:

I realize that there are many threads already on this current issue but i have not had much luck. I just wanted to post some pictures of my situation.

I just bought a new HP laptop and the wireless internet will not connect to my home network. It connects with full strength but I get "limited access" and no network access! Any ideas? When i connect via cable it seems to work fine, since im using it now. here are some pics of my ipconfig and stuff.

Answer:unidentified network-no network access

Your wireless adapter isn't getting an ip address via dhcp from your router. Try assigning it manually to
IP = 192.168.0.x (x must be different to your other machines)
Subnet = 255.255.255.0
Gateway = 192.168.0.1
DNS = 192.168.0.1

*edit* here's a pic guide to setting it manually

Answer:Unidentified Network (Public Network)

You dont happen to be running AVG 8 are you? Seems like there are some cases where it is causing problems with the network stack that Vista uses. I have found it to be the culprit on my Vista Ultimate x64 system but on my Vista Home Basic x64 laptop it has no problems (granted I am using wireless connection for the laptop and wired for the desktop).

Ok so I know most of you will probably say there are a million other discussions and fixes out there for this issue, but none have worked for me this far. When I try to run windows network diagnostics I get a "local area connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration" I've tried resetting the network card flushing the DNS, ect and I always end up with the same thing. I've stopped the bonjour service from starting up. This is occurring on a laptop that before about 2 weeks ago the wired connection worked fine (no wifi) and this happened suddenly over night. Some things to note, I can ping my computers IP address just fine. When I look at the IPconfig page some things I noticed that are weird to me: my network adapter that is listed has the IPv4 autoconfigure address as: 169.254.71.252. My provider says this tells them that something is blocking the connection. Also for default gateway, it's blank, nothing listed at all. Also listed are two "tunnel adapters" that I'm clueless about. One is "teredo tunneling pseudo-interface" under it it says media is disconnected, physical address is all zeros says DHCP is not enabled but autoconfigure is enabled. That's all the data for that one. The other is "tunnel adapter isatap.{bunch of numbers here} it's median state is also disabled along with DHCP. Auto confignis is also enabled.

Hello All,
My brother rebooted his computer and a network connection problem. Everyone of his Network Connections get automatically listed under Unidentified Network (Public Network) and there is no other network being created, like the default Network.
1. He don't have the Bojour Service loaded.
2. He doesn't use Adobe CS3, he has CS4.
3. We have tried
3.a ROUTE DELETE 0.0.0.0 then adding in our own route.

3.b netsh winsock reset catalog
3.c netsh int ip reset reset.log


What happens is that when we reboot, the adapters go through a discovery phase. But instead of creating a new Network which we can configure as Home, Work or Public, it always puts the Network Connections (ex Local Area Connection 5) under the Unidentified network.
We have been at this for hours, there doesn't seem to be a way for us to create a new Network then assign an adapter to it. It would be nice to be able to drag and drop this stuff around, but you can't. I have been reading forums too death, but nothing seems to work.



Does anyone know how to get that default Network to appear on reboot? What we want to happen is like the first time you turn on windows. It identifies a new network, then it ASKS YOU what to do with it.
Any help PLEASE? Otherwise we will have to redo the whole computer.

Hi, Have a problem there, Just reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows XP and WAS having problems having my Linksys 802B wireless card but now it finally detected.. just reinstalled the driver. Now another problem is.. when I double clciked INternet Exploroer, webpages dont load up. A box pops up tp ask if I want to workoffline or Connect. I click on COnnect, and the box then said " No connection to the internet is currently avaiable." The thing is that my wireless adapter is already connected to the DSL in perfect signal connections.

I then went to to Network COnnections folder, There are 3 icons, one says Incomming, the other 2 in the LAN or HighSpeed Internet section says 1394 Connection, and Wireless Network Connection Enabled. On the far left column, i clicked on Create a New Connection. I clicked the option of " Connect to the internet" , then "Setup my Connection Manually.". Then " Connect Using a broadband connection that is always on." .. because I dont need a login name and password. After clicking NEXT and Finished, ..nothing happened.. i clicked on IE again, and same thing pops up. I tried doing the 2nd option to let u enter the ID and password BUT disable the prompt to log in with a username and pw.. still dont work.

Answer:Wireless Network Detected, but Internet Explorer Wont Connect to network in Win 7

Have you tried any other browsers? SeaMonkey is a good one to try if you don't have another. You can still keep IE as default and have SeaMonkey for backup for web pages that may not display correctly in IE or when you have access problems like you are having now. Being Mozilla-based, it uses a different rendering engine. For those web sites that support pipelining, you may also find that it is considerably faster.

Check your connection settings under Internet Options. In the LAN section, try toggling the "Automatically Detect Settings" option.

Hey guys, Im getting to my wits end with my computer lately, I have no idea whats going on, but recently Ive been having some internet problems. Namely an Unidentified Network with no NETWORK access.

Some information first, the NIC that Im using is the Realtek PCIe Family Controller, Ive updated the drivers, Ive uninstalled, Ive reinstalled. Ive basically been on the internet for the past two days trying all the solutions. Including refreshing and renewing my ip, trying a static ip (although, Im still not sure if I did this step correctly) Ive tried disabling IPV6, Ive tried adjusting my speedflux, believe me Ive tried just about everything, I dont have one blue link left when it comes to my google searches on fixing this problem.
The problem is also intermittent with seemingly no reason whatsoever, some days Ill go without internet for the entire day, then the next day Ill boot up my computer and Ill have internet again. It should be noted that when I enable WIRELESS on my laptop, Im able to connect to the network, but when I enable wired, I am not able to.

Here is the ipconfig /all for when Im connected wirelessly and have a connection.

Does anyone know a way of stopping the Ethernet adapter disapearing when a laptop is on Battery on the T60 ?. I have tried configuring the Adapter Power Management to not allow the computer to turn off the adapter but this seems to be ignored. I have also been over the BIOS and cannot see a setting to stop the adapter being disabled. Is there anything else anyone can think of to stop the adapter being disabled ?. This is really only a problem because a software vendor has decided to use copy protection that gets a key off the network adapter - and this piece of software is mainly used when the laptop is on battery.

Hello, I'm currently experiencing a new problem with a customers machine. Its Local Area Connection under network connections flips between the 'enabled' state and 'Network Cable Unplugged' I've went through the line and confirmed its plugged in and the ports lights are blinking properly.

I'm unsure whats causing the problem, but have a feeling its either a windows networking service or the driver. I'm tending to lean toward driver since it connected fine yesterday and downloaded 800MB of updates. I have tried re-installing the same driver that i used yesterday to get it on the internet, with no success.

Device manager says there's nothing wrong with the Ethernet driver, but it does list another ethernet controller, although I'm pretty sure that it is the wifi device, which I haven't been able to get its driver to work either. The computers model is an "HP Pavilion DV7-1245DX" it is running a fresh install of Vista Home Premium 64bit.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
 

Answer:Network Connect flips between 'enabled' and 'Network Cable Unplugged'

Have you tried manually setting the port duplex/speed?

For this to work you need to be able to specify the speed/duplex on both ends of the connection (i.e. at the switch as well as the machine).

I am running into this strange networking issue with my computer (desktop)

Details
1) Wired onboard LAN.
2) I checked cable & router by connecting to a laptop ( so both the cable and router are fine)
3) The motherboard is a GA-EX58-UD3R i7-920 motherboard
4) Realtek 8111/8169 LAN Driver

Things were working great until I ran windows update.
Windows update suggested that I update my network driver which I did !!

Since then the network connection keeps flipping between "Acquiring network address" & "network cable unplugged" every 5 secs

I unistalled the driver and installed the latest driver from the board manufacturer. Also from Realtek website but nothing seems to work.

I have tried to setup static ip. After that the connection says connected and "ping 127.0.0.1" works but nothing else does. Ping to the router does not work.

I am able to connect using the router/cableModem to the internet using my other laptop.. but the desktop is not working.

Any Ideas what might be wrong?
 

Answer:Acquiring network address / network cable unplugged

Rule #1: never allow Windows Update to update your hardware drivers!

Okay, there are lots of other more important rules; that one's probably about #23 or so. Still...

Did you try the "Roll back driver" option to go back to the previous working version? You could try obtaining an older version of the driver and force the system to install that... you don't specify what version of Windows, but most of them try pretty hard to make things mindless for the users and so may not be replacing the bad driver with the one you want if it thinks the bad one is "more suitable".

First, boot into Safe Mode, go to the Device Manager, and Uninstall all the instances shown of the network adapter.

When you reboot, Windows will redetect the NIC - tell it you want to "Install from a list or specific location", then "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.", and finally use the "Have Disk" button to point it at the older version of the driver. It may complain about it being an older or uncertified driver, but tell it to use the driver anyway.

First and foremost I would abandon those ThinkPad 3.0 USB docks.  They worked horrible in our environment, not only with peripherals not getting recognized, but laptops would not get a wired IP address when docked unless the user rebooted.  We also have NAC and the ThinkPad 3.0 USB docks also had NAC issues I don't know if it's an option for you to get rid of those docks and go to a standard docking station scenario, but as pretty as they are, and small and space saving as they are, they just never worked right for us.  You would think a Lenovo dock with a Lenovo Laptop and a Lenovo Keyboard and a Lenovo mouse would work well together, but no. Good luck,

Hi everyone! Oh look, it's this thread again.

Well, sort of. A majority of what I can find are "Unidentified Network - No Internet Access". This is just straight-up "no network access", which seems to be a less common issue. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, and I'm connected to a BT Home Hub 2.0a via ethernet, using a BT Home Hotspot to make a connection using the power circuitry in the house.

My connection will drop completely out of the blue. It's fine and dandy right now, but at completely random times it will just drop. I can't clearly predict it. In Network & Sharing Center, it attempts to identify the network, only to give up and throw out "Unidentified Network - No Network Access". I'll detail symptoms and things I've done to try and fix it.

- 6-7 times out of 10, the connection can be restored by disabling/re-enabling the network adapter, or switching the Home Hotspot off and then on again; so essentially, disabling/re-enabling the connection. It will fail again some hours later.

- I've ruled out any issue with the Hotspot connection method, ethernet ports, and drivers as I've tried to connect directly to my Hub wirelessly with two separate USB dongles - wireless has the exact same issue, and in this scenario, the connection can be temporarily restored by moving the wireless dongle to another USB slot. Taking it out and putting it back into the same slot won't work, it has to be a different USB slot. And when that ... Read more

Answer:"Unidentified Network - No Network Access" at random!

Hello,
The only thing that ever caused me as much trouble was having Apple's Bonjour service running. It totally messed up my network. I remember reading that it had to do with it setting up a 0.0.0.0.0 address. Uninstalling it fixed my issues. Maybe you have it installed?

Hey guys, I?m getting to my wits end with my computer lately, I have no idea what?s going on, but recently I?ve been having some internet problems. Namely an Unidentified Network with no NETWORK access.

Some information first, the NIC that I?m using is the Realtek PCIe Family Controller, I?ve updated the drivers, I?ve uninstalled, I?ve reinstalled. I?ve basically been on the internet for the past two days trying all the solutions. Including refreshing and renewing my ip, trying a static ip (although, I?m still not sure if I did this step correctly) I?ve tried disabling IPV6, I?ve tried adjusting my speedflux, believe me I?ve tried just about everything, I don?t have one blue link left when it comes to my google searches on fixing this problem.
The problem is also intermittent with seemingly no reason whatsoever, some days Ill go without internet for the entire day, then the next day I?ll boot up my computer and I?ll have internet again. It should be noted that when I enable WIRELESS on my laptop, I?m able to connect to the network, but when I enable wired, I am not able to.

Here is the ipconfig /all for when I?m connected wirelessly and have a connection.

In response to your question on range, a wireless router will not effectively cover that distance.

Hello:

The problem I am having occurs when I make a Network bridge connecting my Local Area Connection with my Wireless Area Network to create a MAC Bridge Miniport. I have used this daily for connecting my Xbox 360 to Xbox Live and up till now has not given me any problems.

I commonly deleted the bridge to get a better connection and the other day I deleted the Network Bridge and an error popped up saying that an error occurred while removing bridge. Now a red X appears on the Network Bridge, under Network Connections, every time a new bridge is made, also stating that the Network Cable is unplugged, although it is.

The following are the attempts I have made to fix the problem but were unsuccessful.

Attempt 1: Replaced Ethernet Cord with several different cords - Simple fixes are always tried first.
Result 1: Network Bridge still states that the Network Cable is Unplugged.

Attempt 2: Deleted Network Drivers, then Restarted Computer to automatically reinstall drivers.
Result 2: The Problem still exist with nothing new.

Attempt 3: Used the command prompt using it as an Administrator and...
Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, by typing: netsh int ip reset reset.log
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, by typing: netsh winsock reset catalog
... Then reset the Computer as the command prompt suggested.
Result 3: Problem still occurs.

Greetings,

I currently have five ips from Comcast. I have an old trendware hub now. I also have a router that I use for two computers to gain Internet access while behind the routers firewall. What I want to accomplish is getting rid of the router enabling every computer to be in front of the router. In other words, all computers have valid IPs on the Internet.

As of now, with the ips pulled from two of my computers, they are able to transmit at LAN speeds even though they are both on the Comcast network and even on different segments of the network, I checked the ip address and subnet masks myself (I have two year background in CCNA.)

However, not all of the computers transfer at LAN speeds. It seems only a few want to transfer at lan speeds, the rest I get the same old crap upload speed of cable providers at like 30KB a second.

My question is, if I replaced this HUB, with a SWITCH, will that help the packets find there way on the LAN? Or will I still get that crap 30KB a second from some of the computers? Now I understand that switches don't route, thats IPs job and routers, and switches operate at layer 2 using MAC addresses, but throw me a bone here.

Basically my question is, I want to be able to have a public ip address, but still get LAN speeds between all five of my computers here at the house. What is the best option for me? Thanks.
 

Answer:Comcast Cable network, network speeds

Well a switch (which is what most modern home networking routers employ for multiple ports) transmitts directly to the computer for which the message is intended and, unless I'm mistaken, this means they can send packets between each other and to/from the net at the same time.
Unfortunately, with a router, you will be sharing bandwidth so the bandwidth may be more evenly distributed, but your total bandwidth will drop to the same as one IP address. You can however keep a computer connected to the hub for one of the IP addresses so that one will get full speed and then connect the rest to the hub through the router. You'll lose any ability to communicate between the computers behind the router and computer on the hub, but if you have something you need fast, the exposed PC can get it and you can just switch the cable from the hub to the router for a quick transfer.

Hi Guys.

I am relatively new to win7. I am trying to connect a windows 7 Professional 64 bit machine to a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit machine for the purpase of gaming. For some reason my network says unidentified network and I cannot pick up the other pc on any game. I do however have access to file sharing between the 2 pcs. I have tried many fixes online, but to no avail.

I have set the ipv4 to 192.168.100.101 on my pc(windows 7 Professional 64 bit) and 192.168.100.100 on the other. I have changed the network types to private on both pcs. Firewalls are disabled and we removed our anti virus programs incase it was the cause.

Could anybody please help?

Answer:Unidentified Network

Welcome to SF,

It's a little diff. Subnet '192.168.100.101'. Is this the DHCP Scope that you have setup in your Router?

Is this a wired or wireless issue?

What is the make/model of your router?

Have you tried changing the Static IP Assigment to DHCP and see if this would work?

Do you by any chance have Zone Alarm installed? There has been much discussion about this affecting vista PC's connected wirelessly.
Do you have IPv6 enabled? If so try disabling this leaving IPv4 enabled -

Ive been through many of the posts on here about the Unidentified network error. Ok first I am using a computer that has Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit installed. It has an Intel 82562 Network Adapter and I am connecting it wired to a Netgear WPN824v3. Yes both of these have the most recent firmware and it didnt work before I upgraded the firmware on both. Prior to using this Netgear I had been using a Netgear WNR2000 but we were having issues with the wireless on that router where it would just completely stop. Ok this is where it gets complicated. I am too far from the modem to connect directly to it. This was not the case 24 hours ago when I was plugged into the WNR2000. The computer was moved across the house and most of the network has been changed. Windows Update also installed a bunch of updates right when I shut it down to move the PC but I have uninstalled all of them and it didnt change anything. The room with the modem has a DLink DI-524. Everything connected to that router works fine including the Netgear WPN824v3. The Netgear WPN824v3 has a computer with XP on it connected to it and it is running perfectly. I can also plug my laptop into it and it works fine and also the wireless on it functions great. I need to use both these routers right now because I have that many wired devices that I need all the ports. Ive tried setting up a static IP as well as letting the router assign one and I can't get anything either way. I can not even get into the router settings or anythi... Read more

Answer:Unidentified Network

The easiest way to fix this problem is to replace one of your routers with a switch. The way you have it now your routers will be fighting over which default gateway to use and it ends up creating a big networking mess.

It's not meant to work that way which is why that set up isn't working for you. There are ways to use a router as a switch but it's not considered to be a reliable set up,...it's just not meant to work like that, you would much better off just purchasing a switch.

Switches are cheap and easy to set up, just plug it in to one of the routers ports and plug your other machines into the switch. Your unidentified network problem will most likely just go away once you remove the extra router and install a switch.

If you really want to save the money for the new switch or just like to mess with networks you can use the instuctions below to set up a dual router network.


Installing a router to work as the second one on a home network requires special configuration. Do the following on the second router to ensure it (and the devices attached) function properly: 1.

If connecting the second router wirelessly, ensure the second router is set for client mode. Note that some home wireless routers do not support client mode; these must be connected by cable.
