Windows 7 - Unidentified Network on Ethernet - Wifi works fine

Question: Windows 7 - Unidentified Network on Ethernet - Wifi works fine

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

I am a total loss. I thought it was a hardware problem at first, but the fact that it does not work on a USB Ethernet adapter tells me the problem lies somewhere in Windows.

Any help is appreciated.

Hey Everyone,

I'm currently trying to get my wireless working on a new w7 install. Since the fresh install I've only installed windows updates, Firefox 11.0, and XBMC. I did all this using an Ethernet cable. 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.

I have recently bought a router, the Fritz.Box Home Server 1&1 VDSL. I have set it up via wifi and can connect to the internet without a problem.
However, I would like to connect my PC to the router via LAN.
When I put the LAN cable into my PC and the router, both my PC and my router react and tell me there is a connection but they do not recognize each other. The router says there is something in LAN1 and the PC says there is a LAN cable without a connection. I cannot access the router via LAN, only via wifi.
My PC uses the Killer Network 2200e driver, I tried removing it and then manually adding it again, it did not work. My IPv4 settings seem fine, too, I have no idea what to do now.

Answer:Ethernet won't connect to router, wifi works fine

and welcome to the Forum

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found, here's how


Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type or copy and paste the following command:

ipconfig/all > 0 & notepad 0

and press enter.

Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB drive, or a CD-R disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Hi

I have a ZyXEL 600 wireless router - it has worked without issues for years.

However yesterday evening my wireless router suddenly stopped broadcasting a signal.

2 different PC's and a wifi dongle attached to our TV were suddenly all unable to find my network.

The WLAN light on the router was still lit up. I connected my Acer Aspire 5742Z laptop to the router via an ethernet cable and it worked fine. I connected to the router and it said there were no errors.

I phoned ZyXEL support this morning and they dialled in, confirmed the router was reporting it was working. They installed inSSIDer on my PC and verified no signal was being picked up - but other local wireless networks were being picked up.

They suggested buying another modem as it was very old and could have just reached the end of its life.

So I bought a brand new Sitecom 300N x2 modem this morning, connected it up and have the exact same problem. All the right lights are on the modem (solid WLAN, DSL and Internet lights), I can connect via an ethernet cable but none of my devices can find a the wireless browser (but can find other networks and connect to them).

I've spent hours on the phone today to various tech people and gone through channel switching, changing encryption etc but nothing has worked. The router is sat in the same place it has been for the last 3 years and the laptop is inches from it but still no joy.

As far as I can see I've ruled out:

Hi, I am currently using the University campus wifi which works fine, but when I try to connect to it via ethernet, it always comes up with "no internet access" despite the wifi working fine. If I go onto network and sharing centre, the ethernet is sending bytes but only receiving very few every so often. I am using windows ten, please feel free to ask for more information, thanks for helping

You can download them from here or install them from the d drive.http://support.lenovo.com/en_IN/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS033356Also if it does't fixes the issue, could you open the device manager and check if there is any unknow device or a device with a yellow triangle on the icon of any of the network device? i mean is there a ethernet driver installed.Also, check the ethernet cable, it might be at fault too. Try with another cable too.Regards

So here is my story. A couple days ago I awoke to having no internet access over any devices connected through Ethernet or Wifi. My first thought was it was just a fluke and to power cycle my router and modem. After doing so I still got nothing. Called up my ISP thinking that the internet might be down due to a winter storm we had that night. They said that it wasn't. They sent signals to my modem and everything appeared to be working properly.

My equipment then:

Arris SB6141
Asus RT-AC3200

So I decided to make a run to Best Buy (not my first choice but convenient) to pick up a new cable modem. Purchased a Arris SB6190. Got it home, called up ISP (Spectrum) and had them provision it. Everything went smooth. Well now I was getting internet but only over WiFi. So now I'm thinking that my router bit the dust. Took another trip to Best Buy and purchased a Linksys EA9500 router. Got home, hooked it all up, same exact thing. Wifi works but everything connected through Ethernet has no connection.

Here is my IPConfig:

Strange issue that just started today. My Ethernet adapter shows unidentified network and none of my apps have internet access, however my web browsers work just fine. I am even making this post from the adapter that supposedly has no access. I have been searching around for a solution, but no problem seems similar to mine. Check out the screenshot below. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Ethernet shows unidentified network, but internet works.

Solved it by running these commands in admin CMD:
netsh winsock reset catalognetsh int ipv4 reset reset.lognetsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Then did a reboot.

My PC with windows 7 is the only computer with issues in the house. Ethernet works perfectly but wifi doesn't even when I don't have the ethernet hooked up. The wifi says it is connected but browsers, steam, and Itunes don't work. I have Bitdefender A/V and already tried uninstalling it, no change. I also uninstalled steam and Itunes with still no change. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the wireless adapter. I tried looking and I don't recall downloading or installing anything around the time the problem started. Before I try replacing the adapter itself, I was hoping for help here since I saw a very similar problem in another thread.

Answer:Unidentified Network/valid IP configuration: both Ethernet and WiFi

When you see your IP address in the 169.254.xxx.xxx range that means you are not getting a DNS from your router. Try to turn your router off for about 15 seconds and then turn it back on and see if that helps.

You may have to restart your computer also.

Hello,My name is Vladan and I have had a problem occur yesterday. My internet stopped working.I immediately tried my phone's wireless connection and saw that it was working fine, so I tried laptop wireless and it too was working. When I plug in my network cable it stops working.My ethernet internet connection status shows that Ipv4 and Ipv6 have "no internet accsess". It's not just my laptop's wired internet that stopped working, it's the whole network I have in my apartment consisting of two more computers who also lost their wired-ethernet internet accsess. I suspect something is wrong with my router since it relays my internet but wireless works fine so I'm stumped. When I plug in my cable it shows limited connectivity.I have tried ipconfig /release - /renew, I have tried netsh winsock reset and netsh int ip reset log.txt I have tried (netsh winsock reset catalog), also I tried (netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log) and it said the following ::::::Resetting Interface, OK!Resetting Neighbor, OK!Resetting Path, OK!Resetting , failed.Accsess is denied.Resetting, OK!Restart the computer to complete this action.::::I don't know what is this "failed and accsess is denied" but it might be the problem.I have rebooted my router several times but also with no results. I have checked DHCP settings for both router and laptop adapter and it all checks out. I have check IP filtering and MAC filtering on router and it all looks fine. I use no f... Read more

Answer:Network troubleshoot - Ethernet (wired) stopped working, Wireless works fine.

Did your ISP give you this router such as your leasing it etc? If so contact them for a replacement.If you own this router then I'd try factory reset button to set it back to factory default. If that doesn't cure this then buy a new router. They are pretty cheap these days.Your router could have been hacked, the access denied is strange!

Hey,
My desktop is connected to my router via cable. And it randomly gets disconnected from time to time. I've tried re-installing drivers. I get the red X on my network icon in the taskbar, which usually happens when a cable is unplugged. I fixes it self after a minute or 2, its never longer than 1 minute, usually 10-15 seconds, and it happens ever 10-15 minutes.

My wifi works fine, and I have a vonage box connected to my main router which works fine too. It's just my desktop. I've tried different ports, same problem.

I'm heading home in a few hours and I've picked up a new 5 meter cable to check with.

What else could be the problem if the new cable doesn't fix it.

My network adapter is the on baord one on the Asus Maximus Formula.

Thanks.

Answer:Network randomly disconnecting. Wifi works fine.

Seems to be something wrong within the cable or could be the network card within your pc? Did you try the cable on any other pc or that?

So I am attempting to connect to the wifi network at my girlfriends place, which I have done fine previously, but my laptop cant find it at all. I have tried restrarting my laptop, installing new drivers for the atheros wireless adaptor, resetting the router, but it still wont show up. It connects fine to other (older and newer) devices, and works fine when connected via ethernet cable, but it is hardly practical to sit on top of the router all day.

My laptop detects other networks fine, such as those of the neighbors and connects to my own home network fine. I have also tried deleting the saved network and manually connecting to the network while also checking the box about connecting even if the network is not broadcasting its SSID. Still nothing. I also checked power management settings and made sure it the network adaptor was using max performance power settings.

Previously when I set up their router, it was broadcasting on a single channel between 1 and 11, cant remember exactly which, and I have no reason to believe they have changed it.

Answer:Cant find specific Wifi Network but works fine with other devices.

connect by ethernet and have a look at the name and channel- it could be using channel 12 or 13 which is allowed outside the US but your PC is using channels 1-11 if US based setting

look at the SSID name and if indeed set to broadcast

I have seen that issue a few times - although xirrus usually shows the channel

all those signals are very low

whats the name of the wireless signal at your girlfriends
and where is that xirrus screen shot from - your girlfriends ?

Good afternoon I'm hoping that someone may be able to help me with an unusual issue I am experiencing.

We have a number of different laptops running Windows 7 and all have the same issue.

The very first time a laptop is connected to the company network via Ethernet or WiFi (lets assume we have connected by WiFi) you receive the prompt to choose a network location. After selecting "work" the laptop can connect to the domain and everything works as expected.

Now if the WiFi on the laptop is switched off and the user try's to use the Ethernet connection the Ethernet adapter reports a "Unidentified Network". The only way to get the Ethernet adapter to discover the domain is to disable the WiFi adapter completely which our users cannot do as they do not have Admin permissions on our systems.

Anyone had and similar issues or heard of anything like this? Any help would be gratefully received.

Answer:swapping between ethernet/wifi "Unidentified Network"

I suspect but this may be dependent on the hardware/firmware in the laptops that they are only able to use a single adaptor, in other words they don't have dual port capabilities, sometimes if they have a power save active it will only allow 1 port, you really need to check the laptop model specs.
Have you tried to plug in and connect with a Ethernet and once you have established a connection try the wifi link,
As for not having permission can your IT not allow that specific permission.

dear sir/ madame

i've been with this problem for months and i have tried multiple solutions offered by others on the internet, yet i'll give it another try here.

i'm using a powerline adapter directly plugged into the wall on my desktop. And it has worked excellent before, but suddenly someday it did not get a valid IP adress anymore for my pc, i have tried giving it an ip adress manually but without succes. i also tried updating the driver but there was no update.
my network and sharing center displays unidentified network and windows problem solver detects the problem 'network name' does not have a valid ip configuration.

thanks in advance for your help

Answer:windows 10 unidentified network on LAN/ethernet

Probably Windows Update replaced your LAN driver with generic Microsoft driver that is not 100% compatible with your hardware. Download latest LAN driver for your adapter (it doesn't need to be Windows 10, 7 & 8 should also work) and install it. If that works, then you must hide the driver update so it is not installed again.

Answer:Windows 7 Unidentified Network using ethernet

Hi, Welcome to Seven Forums.

This address...
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.56.189(Preferred)

Means you are not getting an address from your router.

As a starting place, check your DHCP range in your router, and that hou have no MAC filters defined to only allow specific MAC addresses. Or specific MAC addresses blocked (such as the wired physical address/MAC address).

Often routers use a default range of 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.100 for the DHCP range.

Your wireless picked up 5, so do you have other PCs/Devices using the other addresses?

You could also try a static address just to test.

IP Address: 192.168.2.6
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.2.1
DNS: 192.168.2.1

and see if that works.

Please let us know how that goes..

I bought an Ethernet cable to plug directly to the modem for better speeds. I plug it in and it doesn't work. It has a Public Network symbol and says "Unidentified Network". When I diagnose it says "Local Area Network 2" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. My NIC is the Intel(R) Ethernet Connection i217-v.

I have tried almost everything. Manually set the IPV4 from the IP config command, disabled IPV6, tested the cable on other PC, checked BIOS to make sure it is enabled, started in safe mode with networking, changed speed and duplex, installed official Intel drivers. It could be the modem but I'm unfamiliar with what settings to tweak. Modem is a Telstra Gateway Max TG799vac.

Cable is plugged in the right place 100%. The modem LED is green and flashing and the PC's top LED is orange and flashing but the bottom is green. I uninstalled the driver in device manager and restarted then reinstalled but still doesn't work. If I login to the modem with the other PC it doesn't appear under the Ethernet connections. I called the ISP for

Sometime after trying to fix it I had the exact same problem with the WiFi and I just enabled the IPV6 and it worked again. It was "Unidentified Network" and had a public network symbol just like the Ethernet is doing.

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

Hi, this my first time posting and I really would refrain from bothering people if I could, but I've been having this issue with my wireless for the last month so I thought perhaps someone could help.

The OS is a Windows XP home.

I go into IPCONFIG/ALL and it tells me that my wireless is disconnected



I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.
I've tried going into the router (it's a NETGEAR MR814) IP, and I've added it to the list of devices that can connect to it, but it's not working. It just... won't work. It's not that there's a security lock on my router because I've disabled it and it still wouldn't work.

So now I'm completely befuddled, and disheartened, and on the verge of just taking apart my machine were it not for the ethernet connection. Can someone please help?

Answer:Ethernet works fine, Not Wireless

First try going into network property and see if you can see it.
If you see something like "Local Area connection 2" with wireless network card, right click on the icon and view available network/connection.
If you see your wireless router setting, highlight and click "Connect".

I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times but I cannot seem to find my exact issue anywhere. Hopefully this helps myself and anyone who runs into this issue.

To start, I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit. Everything worked 100% fine with absolutly no issue and then.... I moved. Now we have Fios instead of Comcast.

Now to the issue. When I have the ethernet connected I cannot get internet access but I have full network access. I went out and purchased a new wirless card and wirless works just fine. I tested 2 different cables, recrimped both of them and nothing. I have activity on the PC and the Router so I am sure they are good.

I have tried everything I have read online, Updated Realtek Family PCI Ethernet drivers from MSIglobal. Disabled/Enabled. ipconfig /flushdns, /release and /renew. I went as far as Backing up and reformating the Hard Drive and before reinstalling the backup I tested it and nothing. Restored my backup file and yep.. nothing.

Its kind of frustrating. I'm not exactly and expert but i am in no way a novice either. This one has me stumped. Im thinking maybe it is a windows service that is not set to start correctly but I figured I would creat a post while I am at work and maybe have and answer to test before I hunt through the services tonight.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

Thanks

Hi all.
First of all, I want to thank you guys in advance for putting your time and effort to solve my issue. any answer would be grateful to me.

My internet provider is At&t and as I mentioned in the title, wireless internet works perfectly fine, but Ethernet connection doesn't work on my desktop. Currently I am using wireless adapter on my PC, and it works just fine. I tried disabling the wireless connection, resetting the modem, re installing the Ethernet driver and anything I can think of.

The odd thing is that my brother used Ethernet connection just fine with his desktop about three weeks ago, with same router and same cable. So I am assuming that my computer is the one with the problem but I can't figure it out why.

I'm going to try out the different cable tomorrow, but I highly doubt it will fix my problem.

Answer:Wireless works fine, Ethernet doesn't

Odds are that the NIC has failed.

Another low possibility (in addition to cable and router LAN port) are the PC's firewall or security suite misconfigured or corrupted.

Another thing to try: in Device Manager right click on the ethernet - Properties - Advanced tab - for the 'Speed & Duplex' property try different values beginning with '100 Mbps full duplex' and '10 Mbps full duplex.'

I have a virtual machine, that as of the last time it was booted worked fine. I have changed my network card since I last booted it, but reconfigured bridged Ethernet, and am able to browse the web perfectly from within it. I can also connect to the host's windows share perfectly, and can browse around. However, attempting to download files "crashes" the VM's explorer (It stops responding, then eventually spits out "cannot read from source file or disk". Virtually every other operation does the same thing. Specific problems including going up a dir takes an excessively long time, reconnecting without rebooting is extremely slow, icons for executables are missing (almost every other icon is properly present), etc.
What happened? All of my troubleshooting experience with windows shares involves getting connected; I have never had any issues once connected. The host's share, btw, works fine on other machines, and other machines shared work fine for the VM. Both the VM and the host OS (heck, and the file I am trying to get) are on the same disk, might that have something to do with it? Thanks for your time.
 

Answer:Network works fine, windows file sharing intermittent

could be a bad driver for the NIC that you swapped in, see if there is a newer version........ if there is a problem with the NIC on the host OS, then it will cause the virtual NIC to be flaky since it's technically using your real NIC.............. Had a NIC driver that caused corruption of files when copying from Win2k3r2 machine to XP hosts (bad driver on XP hosts) and it was impossible to run installers.....

Earlier my desktop was to b in d same place where the router was der. Everything worked fine. Now I decided to shift my desktop to another room. I have kept the router at the earlier place only. I have brought a 25m long new cat 5 cable. When I connected it to my desktop, the orange led on ethernet port do not light up and the desktop is unable to detect the ethernet cable and hence the internet connection. On the router, a light of ethernet keeps on blinking every 1 second. I was worried whether my ethernet port got fried. So i inserted another ethernet cable, but then the ethernet orange light came and the pc detedted the connection. Therefore I thought the cable might be faulty. Therefore I connected my laptop with that 25m cable. But my laptop detected it and showed the internet connection. But now when i again connect the cable to my desktop, there's no light and the pc does not detect it. However, if i connect the 25m cable to my desktop then during boot the ethernet light on router is stable just as when it is normally connected to the internet. But when i go into windows it starts blinking every 1 second.

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).

Hello again,

My case can be retrieved from my other thread: WiFi not showing up

So now my problem is that I am having problems getting internet access through ethernet for my PC. It says it is an unidentified network. Sometimes it has trouble connecting to the network and tries to identify it, sometimes it doesn't realize that ethernet has been plugged in and and no network is sensed.

However, internet through Wifi works.

Yesterday night I managed to solve the problem (I have no idea how) but when I woke up it didn't work again.

I have tried different ethernet cables, different slots.

I have tried ethernet over my laptop, which also says unidentified network.
When I look at my ipconfig /all I have no default gateway

Hello, I just built a system with Vista Ultimate x64. However, when I connect to internet via ethernet, it keeps showing "unidentified network" and limited connectivity. The wireless works fine when I used DWA-160 Dlink adapter. The motherboard is Gigabyte GA-EP45-DS3R and it has 2 ethernet ports onboard. I'm connecting via a campus network and the ethernet worked fine on my old computer, ran on XP Pro.

Answer:Unidentified network via ethernet

Someone correct me if I'm wrong - but I believe Vista displays "Unidentified Network" when it cannot find a gateway to the outside world.

Looking at your link details supports my supposition, as no gateway is listed. This is kind of required to get access outside of your local subnet - in this case, the internet.

Looking a second time shows your IP address as a 169 number. That indicates, to me, that DHCP isn't working.

It seems to me that you might want to contact your campus IT department and find out what is necessary to get you going.

Recently I performed a reinstallation of windows on my laptop. Normally I had no problems with the wireless, but after the reinstallation my laptop refuses to acknowledge that there are wireless networks. When I'm not connected to the internet, it asks to connect using a wire connection only.

I have a Dell Inspiron iM101z running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I downloaded all the drivers for what the Dell website told me my laptop model was, a Dell Inspiron 1121. Attached is a picture showing the oddities of my problem. The icon on the taskbar shows that I have to connect with an ethernet cord; no wireless icon is shown.

If I try to unplug the ethernet cable and connect to the internet, I only get the option to do a broadband connection. Also, once I unplug the cable, I get "no connections available."

Answer:Laptop refuses to detect anything wireless, ethernet works fine

Most likely this is still a driver problem.

This problem started about 2 days ago when i was starting up my laptop from sleep mode. When i tried to troubleshoot it showed "Ethernet doesnt have a valid ip configuration". So i went through some online threads n tried the following.

I ran ipconfig/release, and it showed "no operation can be performed on local area connection* 13 while it has its media disconnected". The same result for local connection* 12 , WiFi, local area connection and bluetooth.

I ran netsh int ip reset an it showed a success, but then when I restart the computer the problem persists

So here is the ipconfig/all , please help. Computer model: Lenovo T440s Win8.1 64bit

Help,
I can't figure this crazy problem out. I'm almost positive this has something to do with the invasive Windows 10. 
I've had 4 friends contact me about this same issue. There ethernet card no longer works. Seems all have been after the Win 10 (unwanted download).
Thanks for any help !
 

Answer:Ethernet Unidentified Network (won't connect)

This is a known problem with the upgrade to Windows 10.
 
Go to Microsoft Support  and the instructions to use their Troubleshooter.
 
This repair involves editing the registry.  Microsoft suggest that you backup the registry before using the Troubleshooter.  I prefer Tweaking.com Registry Backup.
 
To backup the registry please down load and install Tweaking.com Registry Backup.

Hi!
I get problem after I shut down computer...Windows get some updates while shut downing...day after when I want to turn on computer, Windows again get some updates and restart few times automaticly...aftet finally turn on I get this problem...

This is desktop computer, not laptop and computer is connected with cable to router.

Answer:Unidentified network (Limited) - Ethernet

So you're connected to your router with and ethernet cable? (I'm asking this because you only specified "cable")

Also, have you tried disabling and enabling your ethernet adapter?
If you don't know how, then go to the link below.

Enable or disable a network adapter - Windows Help

This had also happened to me when I installed a virtual machine like VirtualBox or VMware.

It could also be an outdated network driver. That's likely to be the cause.

What's your machine's name? (i.e Dell Inspiron M731R)

I ran into a big problem 2 days ago when I had issues with windows updates on my W7 OS. I was getting some updates out of the way after updating my graphics card drivers for the beta test weekend for SW:TOR. I let it all run through as normal, however, during step 3 of 3 the computer restarted and ran windows repair. After it was all settled the updates went from 4 to 70 someting. Thinking this odd, since I have had this system rock solid now for over 8 months I went ahead and intalled all the updates.

The same hitch occured at step 3 of 3 and windows repair rolled back more updates to over 90 upon startup. After the second rollback repair event I had no ethernet connectivity.

When I say no connectivity I mean that the ethernet port does not actually send packets along the ethernet cable to be recieved by the router. It is as if the process was virtualized. Naturally I accepted the curious challenge, set aside game testing and dove in. Ran throught the normal gambit of escilated fixes:

* Disable/Enable the adapter
* Cycled through drivers (uninstall/windos install)
* Connected directly to router/web, and reinstalled router firmware to factory conditions
* IP config wrangeling of /flushdns /registerdns /release /renew stopped and started services across the board one by one attempting systematic elimination
* Flashed bios for MOBO and fully reinstalled factory direct drivers for the chipset and wut not
* Disabled and completly removed windows firewall and modified the s... Read more

Got an issue with using the Ethernet where it would Blue screen my PC. If I use WiFi, it's fine but the moment I use Ethernet it crashes with a paged fault in non paged area BSOD. I have updated drivers, cleared and reupdated drivers to noavail. Also bought a new NIC and cat5 cable and it's still causing stop errors.

Answer:BSOD while plugged into Ethernet fine with WiFi

For more specific troubleshooting steps, please follow the blue screen posting instructions.http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html
Crashes point to a problem with your display card and possibly your RAM. I also see Service Pack 1 is not installed, which may be the underlying factor for all the crashes.

I get the "Ethernet 2" Doesn't have a valid IP configuration" message whenever I attempt troubleshoot the ethernet.

My set up...

Alienware Aurora R4 computer. I have a 1gb USB/ethernet converter with an ethernet system connected to an "AV200 Powerline Adapter with Wireless N300and passthrough sockets - triple kit" setup. When I was on Windows 8, I just plugged the powerline set up at their respective places, connected to the Virgin Media 100mb speed wireless/ethernet Hub and it worked perfectly with no complicated setup (took less than 10 minutes to do). I know a wi-fi adapter would be a short term fix but unfortunately Wi-fi is near impossible because of where my studio computer is based (my computer studio room is in a converted shed at the very back of my garden and geographically to far to get any reliable wi-fi signal... hence the need to purchase a mains powerline system).

I delayed updating Windows 8 until today. After this update I am now completely without internet. I can't understand what the problem is, I am unable to perform a system restore for some reason. It cannot be a router problem because my mobile phone works as does other devices in the house, just not the computer. I knew it worked perfectly before this update so it has to do with the update somehow. I am getting "unidentified network" and "limited" connection.

Hello,
I am having some issues connecting my laptop to my router through an Ethernet cable (wireless works fine). When I connect my cable, it registers as an "Unidentified Network" with no internet access. I have attempted a variety of solutions, including attempting to re-install drivers (Although it is possible that I could have messed that up. I know my way around computers, although I am by no means amazing -especially when things start to go wrong-).
My laptop that I am using is a HP G62-374CA running Windows 7.

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.

I have an ethernet connection for my Internet through a TP link plug adapter. Since I upgraded to windows 10 my interest goes to unidentified network/no Internet access after about 5 minutes. It works fine for 5 minutes (I've managed to download games by constantly restarting for that 5 minutes) but them disconnects and won't come back. Any help please??

Answer:Unidentified network, No Internet access. Ethernet

check the network adaptor in device manager - properties - power tab - make sure it does not have a tick to turn off to save power.

Hello, my pc was working perfectly until it had a critical update, this updated the Ethernet driver on my computer and after that my Ethernet said unidentified network, no internet access, when troubleshooting I found it said the default gateway is not available. I tried to install a new driver/ upgrade it but when trying to do so it said no intel adapters found on this computer. I already tried a windows reset and it didn't do anything. Any help would be appreciated.

So this has been showing up for the past week or so under my network connections. I am not using Ethernet as I have no cable plugged into my PC; I have been using WiFi instead. This problem isn't at one place, I have been using WiFi on different routers in few different locations but this "connection" remains there.

Any ideas on what this could be and why it is occurring? Also, it takes at least 2-3 minutes for my computer to connect to WiFi when it is booted after shut down/ sleep on any router. Can this be related to the problem above?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:Unidentified Network Shows up,not connected/using Ethernet

Looks like it still thinks you are connected to the Ethernet connection. You would have to pull up Network adapters in Network Control Center, to see why you are getting the limited connection. You are not using a VPN per chance?

My Y500 decided it couldn't receive internet on any connection today. It would connect to any network but it would say that there was no internet. I plugged my computer directly into the modem with an ethernet cable and it still said there was no internet. My router was sending out 5Ghz wifi fine and I was using several other devices on the network successfully. Any idea what could be wrong? I thought it would be my wireless card, but wouldn't I still be able to receive internet through my ethernet port then? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help. I don't want to have to buy a new laptop just because this silly nonsense.

Try going to the net using your browser. If you cannot connect, call your isp.

I just returned home from college, and am unable to connect my computer (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, custom build) to the home network via ethernet. My computer attempts to identify the network for a while, then gives me the yellow error triangle that usually indicates the modem (Toshiba PCX2500) needs to be reset. I was previously connected to a college network, also via ethernet. I have not been on this home network in four months, but to my knowledge it has not changed.

Other computers are able to connect using the same modem/router (NETGEAR DS108) ports and the same cable. I have reset the modem multiple times, and I have also tried multiple cables and ports, so the problem definitely seems to be on my end.

I have unchecked IPv6, disabled my firewall, and uninstalled Bonjour.

ipconfig /all gives the following information:

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).

Having trouble with my Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) wired LAN connection. Yesterday evening everything was fine, I was connected and doing some remote work into the office - I was playing with OpenVPN connections. I left the machine for a few hours logged on, came back and now the NIC appears dead.

I have restored windows to the point just before i installed Open VPN.

I get "Unidentified network" and "no internet connection" for my LAN connection in Network Centre. There's no gateway or ip assigned looking at ipconfig /all, just the self assigned 169.* ip

The ethernet cable is connected directly into my cable modem (note, not a router).

I have googled a lot and have tried (not necessarily in this order):

1. Ensured its not the WAN/RJ-45 cable - have connected successfully with an older laptop's LAN NIC. When switching machines i turn off both the machine and the modem for 30 secs, and typically tun network troubleshooter to reset the LAN.
2. Tested the internal NIC by pinging 127.0.0.1, loopback successful.
3. Uninstalled the LAN NIC and reinstalled it.
4. Removed all clients & protocols from the NIC's properties bar IPv4 and Microsoft Client for windows i.e. specifically removed IPv6.
5. Reset TCP/IP using netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt.
6. Have removed the wireless adapter. The only network connection is the internal NIC.

I've just about had enough of this now. I've been searching for nearly two days for a solution.

Okay, so, here it is. I basically need a step by step instruction guide here as I haven't got a clue how to fix this.

Anyway, about two months ago I had some money problems and was forced to move in with my dad. I have a 20GB Xbox 360 and Xbox Live. I knew my dad had the internet so I could still use Live.

I have been doing so via an Ethernet wire going from my laptop (connected via wireless to the router) to the Xbox. A few days ago, I took my laptop to my cousins house and took my laptop with me. Connected it to his router via Ethernet as it was easier.

Come back home, want to play some Gears of War, plug in the Ethernet to the Xbox, and....

"Unidentified Network, No Internet Access", check for a solution and I get "Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

Please help me before I rip out my beautiful long hair, haha.

Hi guys

I have tried fixes from all over the Internet and nothing seems to have worked. It seems there is an error in the gateway settings, but I cannot figure out where I'm going wrong. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

I ran out of Ethernet connections on my wireless router, so bought a USB-Ethernet adaptor. I've plugged in my network printer, but seem to have stalled at getting the adaptor to actually have internet access and get on my network.

I have about 4 PCs connected to the network, hence why I've run out of ports directly on the router. All internet and networked devices connected to the router work fine. When I plug the printer into the back of the router it works - the problem is definitely the adaptor.

I've updated the driver, and tried loads of suggestions, but am still stuck.

My Ethernet adaptor comes up as "Unidentified Network - Work network", and no Internet access. This is not a link so I cannot change the network location. My CMD IPCONFIG is as attached.

I really hope someone can help - I've never used this kind of adaptor before, and it's frustrating that the computer sees it and recognises it - it's all set up correctly and displays in Device Manager - but won't get onto the Internet and my network!

Hope someone can help :-)

Answer:USB Ethernet adaptor set as unidentified network, no internet access

Hello,

The problem is that nothing is giving your USB Network Adapter an IP Address so its defaulting to 169.254.......

You need to go into network connections and give it a static IP address. You will also need to give your printer a static IP address.

A better way of solving this would be to buy a 2nd user 5-Port Network Switch from Ebay... You're creating yourself more hassle by doing the above.

Hi, I'm a forum virgin so please be gentle with me.

I have a desktop and laptop sharing files and an internet connection via modem to D-Link router setup.

My laptop connects to the network via a Netgear PCMCIA wireless card when mobile and via an ethernet cable when sitting on the desk.

The wireless connection does everything it's supposed to do (network and internet access and sharing).

The ethernet connection only shares files but can not get an internet connection to be established.

I have Norton Internet Security but I think everything's alright with that otherwise I wouldn't be able to connect wirelessly. Correct? Are there different IP setup's for wireless/ethernet.

Why can I 'see' my desktop's files and share the printer via ethernet but I can't establish an internet connection unless I go wireless?

Everything's fine with the desktop.

Sorry for the ramble and thanks in anticipation.

Have an Asus ultrabook laptop with an Atheros 9485WB-EB wifi/BT adapter. When I'm away from home, it works perfectly. At home, it sees our home network but refuses to connect to it - just get a cannot connect error.

It used to work fine, and then it's gradually gotten worse. At first rebooting the laptop would make it work for a while, then that quit working. Now it's just non-fuctional at home.

Home wifi works fine with other devices as well, and if I plug a USB wifi adapter into the laptop that works too.

Home router is (I forget the model, have to look when I get home) running dd-wrt. Rebooting the router doesn't fix the problem.

Any idea what would make it quit? No setting have been changed on the router during all this.

Hello, I've been having this issue recently. On my laptop, the wifi works fine, and then a little while later, it can't connect at all (it looks like it's connected, then disconnects, and then tries connect again, etc). All the other devices connected to the router is fine, only mine is the problem. I tried looking at device manager, the Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 is enabled, updated, and in the properties, it says that the device is working properly.

The problem does go away temporarily when I turn off the router, wait a little, and then turn it back on, but soon afterwards, I continue to have connecting issues.

Here's the info

1. Is this a wired or wireless connection issue?
Wireless

2. Who is your Internet Service Provider (ISP)?
Verizon

3. What type of Broadband connection are you using?
Fios

4. What is the exact Make and Model of your Modem, Router or Modem/Router Combo - Linksys, D-Link, Netgear, TP-LINK, etc.

Hi BC

I am using XP. My wireless network is using the "G Wireless Modem Router3 by Belkin. It is running unsecured.

The network normally runs adequately - there are annoying moments when it just seems to freeze, but 30 seconds later it comes back to life.

Yesterday it was performing as usual (ie adequately). Today I cannot connect to the internet at all, either with IE or Mozilla (my normal browser). When I look at the network status all seems well - it is shown as connected, and the signal strength is "excellent". But the efforts to connect just time out: Mozilla says that "the connection was reset", lets you "try again", but it never connects.

I have AVAST running in fully protected mode. I decided to run Malwarebytes to check for anything unusual. It asked if I wanted to update the virus database - I agreed - it then hung, presumably because it could not make its connection! I ran it again, this time refusing to do the update, and it completed a Quick Scan reporting no problems found.

I disconnected from my network, and connected to a neighbour's unsecured network, and everything worked fine.

I switched my router off and on and tried my network again - same problem.

I tried doing a "repair" on the connection (by right clicking on the taskbar icon) - this operation rarely seems to complete normally on my computer. It frequently times out with a message like "unable to connect", but when you then examine t... Read more

Hi!
As the title explains, I have a 40k Mbit/s connection, which my father's and sister's laptop get as advertised, but my pc gets speeds that vary from 2k-15k Mbits/s. Although, when I connect to the internet via ethernet cable the speed is as advertised, around 30k-40k. So I replaced the wifi adapter usb, but that did nothing, so I ran malware tests, even though nod32 did end up removing a MyStartSearch browser malware, internet speed is still slow. My dad also reset and reconfigured the router's setting but to no avail. I'm all out of ideas at this point, what to do next?
I also checked for any programs that might interfere or limit my internet speed in any way but found none. I should also mention that between malwarebytes and nod32 ive perhaps removed the same MyStartSearch malware 5 times already.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Answer:Wifi speed is inexplicably slow, other pc's unaffected, with ethernet cable fine

I've removed the startsearch malware before and after i got the rly bad internet, it doesn't really seem to be related to it tho.

Hi

I have just installed the latest intel PROset WiFi Tecnology software - so I can turn my laptop into an access point and thereofre share my internet with my phone. It has installed correctly (I think) and installed two Virual WiFi Miniport Adapters. The My WiFi software seems to be using the 2nd adapter which is called Wireless network Connection 3. I have setup a profile and shared my internet which has correctly created a network which is brodcasting the SSID and I can connect to it with my phone and other devices. The problem is that I cannot actualy connect to the internet through my phone (problem is definitley not with the phone) it seems to be because windows is showing the newly created access point as an unidentified network.

I have check the adapter settings and the real internet connection (currently 'wireless network connection' ) is being shared with 'Wireless network connection 3'. The adapter properties for both seem fine and internet protocal v4 is set to automaticaly get IP addresses. I have tried putting in a fixed ip adress but that did not help.

In 'Network and sharing centre' it is showing as 'unidentified network' access type: internet, connections: wreless connection 3 (TJN)

I have tried toubleshooting and resetting the adapter but it does not help.

Anyone have any ideas?

this can be fixed after I disconnect/connect the wifi, for a random period of time at least. And then the issue happened again. My mother is using the laptop with line and her laptop is very old, but everything goes fine. And all other devices such as
smart phone/ipad are good too. And my laptop wifi connection goes fine if I was in university. I've tried the IP setting, upgrade the driver, even connect to my internet service company and exchanged a new modem but nothing changed.

And now I totally have no idea and it is really annoying me. Please help!

Is there some sort of confliction between the wifi even though it is disabled and the LAN connection. I am tearing my hair out. The LAN worked fine before I decided to try the WIFI.

Answer:Unidentified network after using wifi for several months

Hello and welcome Exfso mate can you tell me what the PART No. is on the bottom of that machine?

It is the label which says what model machine it is and then that number, and is usually near the Microsoft licence sticker. If you cannot find it run Speccy Speccy - Download and as in my pic it will show the machine part number - (that one circled is mine) it is necessary because it relates to where the machine was made or meant for distribution.
I need that to look for drivers as I think you may have a drivers problem.

Hello!
I just got a new modem (Netgear) that I replaced the old one (D-Link). The wifi is working perfectly, laptops, iPads etc. is working all fine.
The problem is, the computer that uses Ethernet cable isn't working at all. It's says 'Internet service unavailable' and the networks name went from 'unidentified' to 'Network 2'. Both computers using Ethernet cable isn't working and I have updated drive, try to see if it is the routers (Belkin G wireless)fault etc. Even my printer isn't working even though it uses wifi. The printer tough says 'Press router's WSP button' but my router doesn't have one.

So how can I fix this problem and make those computers work?

(Sorry for the description/language, I only have basic computer knowledge)

Thanks!

Answer:Wifi Connection won't work - Unidentified Network

Do not really need that. What does it show for your Network connection in Windows? Is it Private or Public? Are you using any kind of Security Software on the machine? Is this on your personal network or a public? If personal, reboot the Gateway and all devices on the network. If you are using just Wifi, you should see the SSID that you have on your gateway and just enter the proper passphrase.

Okay. I have two computers, a laptop connected to my router thats in another room via WiFi and a desktop in the same room as the laptop, with no wifi.

I am trying to share the WiFi through the laptop so that i dont need to purchase a Wifi card for the desktop. The problem is, that when i connect the two computers together with a crossover cable, and set both computers IPv4's to obtain IP and DNS automatically, i get an unidentified network. The desktop cannot access the net.

Both computers have been set to the same workgroup and i have also tried manually assigning IPv4 addresses and DNS's to no success.

I've read countless threads (here and elsewhere), but have found nothing that really describes my problem.

First of all, some background. I live on a boat and the only available Internet connection is by Wifi. There are no landline or cable connections available.

I have two Toshiba laptops, one running 7 Pro 32 and one running 7 Pro 64. They are networked by direct ethernet cable connection. (The network works fine once you get past the unidentified public network to unidentified home network) And I can connect to the Internet by Wifi from either laptop or both at once. (DHCP is enabled on both adapters)

I have tried, with no success and considerable frustration, to make my home network "identifiable", so I don't have to reset the network location on both machines anytime there is a break in the connection (eg: restart, shutdown)

Everything I have tried that makes the home network identified though, has kept me from connecting to the Internet by Wifi. It appears to me, that once the home network is identified (specific DNS, valid IPs) that Windows wants to connect the network, rather than the individual laptops, to the Internet, and so, though I can connect to the Wifi network itself (and it says I have Internet access), I'm "invisible", evidently, (no gateway ?) to the Wifi ISP.

I have worked manually, through Properties of the adapters, and have tried a wired only router (Trendnet TW100-S4W1CA) (also a Network switch, which didn't solve the unidenti... Read more
