Windows 7: Unidentified Network

16 Aug 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Unidentified Network

Now before you flip because I didn't search the me I did search and I found a lot of people having this problem however none of the solutions worked for me. I have did things such as remove Bonjour, Stop services from Apple and Adobe, manually set my I.P. address, ping with success, updated drivers, removed Microsoft office. Just trust me a HUGE list of things and none of them have helped me.

This all started when I had to restart my PC. My PC starts says the network is Unidentified, the repair tries to restart it, then suggest I restart my router, then says "Local area network is a invalid IP configuration."

We currently have 2 laptops (One with Vista the other with 7) and a desktop(XP) running on the network fine (Mine usually being the second desktop)

Hi Bwinkler1692, welcome to sevenforums. Are you trying to connect via ethernet cable or wireless? What type of router do you have and do you have DHCP setup on the router?

Open up an elevated command prompt then type ROUTE DELETE press enter, see if the issue persist after.

Let us know if it works or now.
