Windows 7: Additional log on information required keeps popping up.

just a quick update...i followed these steps:

1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
2. Go to Networking and sharing center and then click on Change adapter settings.
3. Right click on Local Area Connection and choose properties.
4. Highlight Internet Protocol Version 6 and click on Properties.
5. Choose Obtain DNS servers address automatically and press Ok.
6. Choose Obtain IP address automatically.
7. Repeat the steps for Internet Protocol version 4 as well

and this, so far, has seemed to work. My IPv4 wasnt set to choose DNS servers automatically, but rather to an address starting 206.67. etc

All is good for now but I'll keep the thread updated to see if the problem comes back! If it doesnt I'll mark this thread as solved.

Thanks for all the advise!

(no joy for me however - all are already at 'automatic')

As usual... I spoke too soon! After changing the settings I got a good 6 or 7 hours with no interruption in connectivity.... but the problem literally came back with a vengeance within the last few minutes (funnily enough, the problem came back right after i posted saying it was fixed!)

Back to the drawing board i guess!

yeah, I also spoke too soon as well (on that 'other' duplicate thread). wish a mod would come along and merge these two. also I am somewhat bewildered that a super-guru has not chimed in with their usual and most awesome uber-solutions.

I had the pop up return one time and again flushed the DNS and browser and shut the computer completely down. Re started and have not had the issue for three days.

I did add to the post over at OpenDNS that it came back but there has not been any additional response.

Another update:

I've plugged my modem straight into my laptop using an Ethernet cable and the problem seems to be rectified. I haven't had a pop up or an interruption in connectivity since using the Ethernet cable.

Although this seems to work (so far!) it is quite inconvenient for me due to the lay out of my room (i.e., there's cables going everywhere!) and if a proper solution/cause is found to the problem is found I'd love to know!

In the mean time I'll update if this method suddenly stops working!
