Windows 7: unidentified network - public network Windows 7 64bit

OK, Please take out the wireless, that (at this point) would only confuse our search for the problem.

Delete the network connection(s) you currently have. Point is to force Windows 7 to identify a new connection. Reboot, boot up with the lan cable connected (for the first time).

Please check that, when you connect the lan cable, the green light stays on and the orange starts to flicker.

Make a note of all the LAN related things Windows 7 asks or shows you upon booting.

post back any results...

Hi,

I disabled the wireless card. No connection

Rebooted and this is what I have.

The orange light on the router shows there is internet connection and the green light on the LAN 1 port shows I'm connecting with the PC.

Thx, this shows that you do have a LAN wired connection with your router... but, for some reason, are not connected to Internet. What is the resulting message when you click on that red X and let it try to fix the internet connection?

+ Have you tried allowing the modem to reset by taking it off power for 30 sec's?

These are two simple first steps, we'll get a bit more technical if this doesn't help....

Hello,

Nothing on the Red cross. No links or possibilities of repair.

Tried to turn on and off the the modem many times!

Difficult case, I'm afraid

Ok next step: reboot in Safemode W/networking on and test again. Let's see if standard Windows 7 will do it...Safe Mode - Windows 7 Forums

Also please update us on any firewall etc software and settings you have.

Re booted and started in Safe Mode with Network.

No change. Tried troubleshooting but nothing came up due to the Safemode.

I only have WIndows, Office, ASUS Mobo suite (AI Suite II), the GPU Nvidia drivers and the Linksys wireless driver as programs.

No quicktime or Acrobat.

Windows Firewall: both (home and private), off.

Well now for the technical stuff, this should fix it... Read carefully and if unsure... don't just try but post back your questions please....

1. Click Start

2. All Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt

3. Select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands, each followed by the Enter key:

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine. This should help.

mmm... and you did reboot.
In that case go to the network center, click on Lan connection, next on properties (elevated perms) and in the ext screen, turn off IP6, press OK and try again...:
