Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

There isn't anything showing up here, no IPv4 address and no IPv6 address listing to speak of. The media disconnected message is typical and usually relates to the IPv6 address which only works on the LAN.

It's acting like something is blocking the connection, maybe an A/V software or third party firewall?

It may help to reset Winsock for windows 7.

1. Click start, type cmd in the Start Search box, right-click cmd.exe, click Run as administrator, and then press Continue.

2. Type netsh winsock reset at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Note If the command is typed incorrectly, you will receive an error message. Type the command again. When the command is completed successfully, a confirmation appears, followed by a new command prompt. Then, go to step 3.

3. Type exit, and then press ENTER. You should be prompted to reboot, if not you should reboot and test.

You should also try and reset the TCP/IP stack with this command. Type netsh int ip reset into your comman prompt then hit enter. Restart the machine.

Yes bonjour can cause these types of problems also but usually shows up as unidentified network, to insure that it's off your machine completely do the following.

To fix ...
Run MsConfig

Under the Services tab uncheck the service called "bonjour ##Id_String1.6844[... and then a bunch of numbers]" by Apple

To make sure it's removed from your system.

1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
2. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
3. Restart your computer
4. Delete the Program Files\Bonjour folder
