Windows 7: The default gateway is not available problem

The default gateway is not available problem

Hello,

I've been having this problem for months now where my connection drops and when I go to network and sharing and let windows 7 fix it automatically, it does and says the problem was "The default gateway is not available."

This usually occurs when I start having multiple connections like playing a game and having youtube or p2p program on at the same time.

How does one go about fixing this? I've just about had enough..

I don't, but it still drops me occasionally. This problem did not exist a month ago..

What I most hate about it is that I can't listen to streaming internet radio anymore, I used to, just fine.

If you can post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine it would be helpful.

Do you have iTunes or Adobe photo shop installed on this system?

The ipconfig looks good. Photoshop installs something called bonjour service which is a secondary connection which causes problems with Windows systems on a regular basis.

If you can look in Windows services there may be one called Bonjour or it may show up as IDstring followed by a bunch of numbers, should be near the top of the page, you will want to disable that in services then reboot the machine and see if the problem occurs again or not.

I did not find "bonjour" in the service lists. Anything else it might be?

If you can show me a screen shot of your Windows services page I may be able to spot it. It's not easy to see for most people but it is the most likely problem.

According to the ipconfig you should be online, the default gateway shows up.

Sorry for the absence, I had a problem with bsoding and this issue didn't bother me much but it started again even more frequently.

Here's the services. I couldn't identify anything but hopefully you can.

I don't see the bonjour service however, Avast has been known to cause wireless connection problem due to it's special wireless filter. You should try to find that wireless filter in the Avast settings and turn it off.
