Windows 7: Unidentified Network- "The default gateway is not available"

Unidentified Network- "The default gateway is not available"

Hi, I run Windows 7 64 bit system and my laptop after connecting to the internet for quite sometime recently stopped being able to. Ever since then I've had the hardest time trying to fix it. I've tried everything i can think of, I've scoured forums and tried everything I found but still no luck. My connection is wireless and when i go into the command prompt i can't figure out what is wrong. I have even tried connecting to other internet connections with the same result "Unidentified Network". I'm fairly new with computers seeing this is the first time i've tried to fix this problem myself, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

This problem is usually caused from either having bonjour installed or you have a rogue default gateway.

Fix for "Unidentified Network" / No Internet Access

I think I'll send you to the original post rather than rewording it.

To obtain your actual default gateway just type ipconfig/all into an elevated command prompt. If you can post the results here it would be helpful.

You need to have a pdf reader installed and set to open these file types.

To enable DHCP you would go to your routers set up page and enable it there.
The PDF was only a reworded version of the same link I posted so you didn't miss anything there.

The second link would apply if you have anything from apple installed like iTunes or Adobe photo shop. Ensure that bonjour is not installed on your system.

I may be able to see more info in the ipconfig if you post an actual screen shot.

You will want to remove everything from your IPv4 properties and instead enable DHCP in your routers set up page. After that run save the file below, unzip and click on it, let it run till your machine reboots then please post an actual screen shot of your ipconfig/all.
