"Unidentified Network" only when WIRED into the router!!!
I hate starting threads this way, but believe me I've tried a plethora of solutions and lost half the hair on my head.
Here's the situation:
1) Router: Linksys WRT54GL - works excellent.
2) ISP: excellent connection.
3) Wi-Fi to router: excellent connection.
4) Wired connection: does not connect.
I'm on the internet using my Wi-Fi connection right now. What happened to bone my connection so hard? I switched routers of course. I went from a newer LinkSys router (WRT310N) to my older one because the newer one was actually causing major issues. Now that I switched routers, windows absolutely refuses to delete all recollection of the WRT310N in order to refresh all its doo-dads and tables.
What random commands have I tried? These:
1) Open cmd.exe - Run as Administrator.
2) typed: ipconfig /flushdns - No result.
3) typed: netsh winsock reset - Rebooted. No result.
4) typed: route delete 0.0.0.0 - No result.
5) typed: route delete 192.168.1.0 - No result.
6) typed: netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt - Rebooted. No result.
7) typed: I will give you free bacon if you just work!!! - Result: I became hungry. No internet though.
8) I quit the homegroup. - No result.
9) I restarted the homegroup. - No result.
10) I reinstalled ethernet drivers, every version, build, shape, and color. - No result.
11) Disabled the bloody thing, and turned on my Wi-Fi adapter - Result: YAY internet!
I'm going insane. I'm actually contemplating chewing through my ethernet cable in rage.

this is worth reading >>> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonjour_(software)
Microsoft Windows implementation
Bonjour version 2.0, released on February 24, 2010, works with Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, and Windows 7. Systems use it primarily to facilitate the installation, configuration, and use of network printers, and thus it runs from startup. When Bonjour is fully implemented on MS Windows some features such as iChat allow for communication between the Mac OS and MS Windows. Bonjour for Windows also adds Zeroconf capabilities to Internet Explorer, and provides a Zeroconf implementation to Java VMs.
Bonjour also comes bundled with some third-party applications, such as Adobe's Photoshop CS3 suite, to take advantage of Zeroconf technology.
Installers on Windows systems normally place Bonjour files in a folder called "Bonjour" within the "Program Files" folder. It modifies Windows system-registry entries related to internal network configuration and operation. Bonjour runs as mDNSResponder.exe. Communications across the network take place over UDP port 5353, which may require reconfiguring some personal or corporate firewalls that block Bonjour packets. A full installation of Bonjour for Windows will include a plug-in for Internet Explorer, a printer wizard, and the network communication services. Not all components are included when installed as part of a third-party application or as a component of other Apple software such as iTunes.
Some VPN clients are configured so that local network services are unavailable to a computer when VPN software is active and connected. In such a case no local Zeroconf services are available to Bonjour or any other Zeroconf implementation.
The open-source IM clients Pidgin and Kopete support the Bonjour IM protocol, as does the non-GPL Trillian client.
In September 2008 two security vulnerabilities were found in Bonjour for Windows. Certain installations of Bonjour for Windows lack an uninstaller and do not display a human-readable entry in the Windows services listing.
In 32 and 64 bit releases of Windows 7 the Bonjour service can disable all network connectivity by adding an entry of 0.0.0.0 as the default gateway. The work around is to disable then enable the system NIC (ethernet card) in Windows' device manager but the only permanent solution is to disable the Bonjour service and remove the offending software.

Here’s how to safely uninstall and remove the Bonjour service and files (mDNSResponder.exe and mdnsNSP.dll).
Just follow the few simple steps below to remove Bonjour from your computer.
Warning: iTunes and some other programs need Bonjour to function. In which case do not remove!
NOTE: Make sure you have administrator privileges before executing these commands. (You might have to delete the quotes and input them manually)
Go to [Start > Run] and type the following command and hit OK.
Go to [Start > Run] again and type the following command and hit OK.
regsvr32 /u “%PROGRAMFILES%\Bonjour\mdnsNSP.dll”
After you restart, you can safely delete the Bonjour folder without errors.
To know if you have actually uninstalled Bonjour. Open services.msc and see if there is a service similar to: “##Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B879762##”. If it is not there, then it has been uninstalled. But the folder and files remain in the program files folder. Just in case you want to install it again.
If you encountered problems after uninstalling or removing Bonjour, you can download and reinstall Bonjour http://go2.wordpress.com/?id=725X584...-mdnsnspdll%2F
