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

Very late here....

I'm not sure about IP settings in your country and please be careful about the IP related info you post here... But where did you get the ip i see in the snip from?

Do you have or can you borrow another pc to prove it is not the modem router? You stated it worked well with XP right?
Can you connect another system to th same lan cable and see that it works?

If not, are you comfortable trying a reset of the router? Only if you have all the info you need to set it again in case it reverts to some old factory default? So before you do, make screenprints of all the modem settings...

Hello,

If I may jump here....
Pls. try this first, continue with the next tasks if this didn't work.

Click on Start.
Type services.msc and press Enter. Find the Bonjour Service. Right click on the service and select Properties.
Change the Startup type to Disabled.
Click the Stop button. You can then close the Services window.
Reboot the machine.
=================
If above suggestion is not a success please try the following:
Open up an elevated command prompt then type ROUTE DELETE 0.0.0.0 press enter, see if the issue persist after.

You may also try replacing the problematic network adapter if you have not gone to this route yet.

AV, Firewall or Security Software - expired or existing can also be an obstacle. Completely removing/uninstalling it from your computer might help.

Let us know if it works or not then pls proceed with the router reset to the factory default setting as suggested.

I apologize if any of the the above recommendations have been suggested already. I do overlooked things unpurpose.

Good help, however the LAN card must be ok as the OP said it (and the rest of his system worked fine in XP.

Hello Gents,

Nothing works still. Quick recap:

ASUS P8Z68-v-pro
WIndows 7 Home 64bit

LAN not working;
Unidentified Network - Work network

Only WIndows 7, Office 2010, NVidia drivers for GTX260 programs (no adobe or Apple - bonjour...)

Tried:

imputing my Billion router IP address over 169.XXX address and gateway....;
reset and renew ipconfig;
disabling LAN and reenabling;
disabling IPv6 (lost network there, didn't see it);
reinstalling from Intel generic drivers the LAN drivers;
deleting 0.0.0.0 (didn't find it);
tried killing starting the modem;
can't access modem through the IP address (but the modem, via the laptop, can see the LAN cable of the PC);
tried resetting the IPv4 and 6 via resets;
no firewalls or AV;
tried via safemode.

Only thing now is to try and reinstall WIndows 7.

If not change the Mobo.

Your opinion and and advice is actively thought!

Regards

You have not yet confirmed if this wired lan connection has proven to work ok on another PC. Such that we can be sure it is a W7 problem and not the router.

Also, please confirm that it did work in this setup, with this pc running XP?

Yes,
The router/modem works via LAN on the portable (taken the wireless out)
it worked before, when I had VISTA and the old motherboard .

Downloaded the older drivers. Installed.

Nothing. Still identifies the network as Unidentified Network - Work network.

Went into properties of the device, ran the Diagnostics and for connection it tells me that no DHCP server is present (in the router the DHCP is enabled though). Cable and Hardware diagnostics OK.

Please try turning off DHCP on router and hard setting your ip both on router and pc?
