Windows 7: Default Gateway Broken Windows 7

Default Gateway Broken Windows 7

Hello,
I have a windows 7 Home 64 bit dell laptop. I just moved apartments and ever since then I can not connect to the internet because every 5 seconds its stops working and when I use troubleshoot I get the "default gateway was broken." I've done some research and understand that is usually related to antivirus firewall systems, which I do not have other than Windows. Any help would be much appreciated and also I'm not very computer savy at all. Thanks!

Hello Molly!,

Sorry you are having issues Could you first upload a screenshot of your network configuration so I can see if I can identify an issue. To do so simply follow this tutorial - Network Posting Tips

Many Thanks,
Josh!

Thanks Josh for replying!! I'm not on the network that is causing me problems, so should I upload my network configuration from when I am connected to my home network?

Yes please, upload your ipconfig when you receive the error saying the gateway is broken.

This is the ipconfig from the network that isn't working.

Sorry for the late reply, I have been slightly busy with my current training

Your IP settings look alright from what you have produced. Could you boot your machine into safe mode with networking and then test if your machine connects to the internet? This will help determine if there is a third party application causing a disconnection.

To do so follow this tutorial (Option One) - Safe Mode

Please replace all references of Safe mode with Safe Mode with Networking

Post back your results

Many Thanks,
Josh!

So I booted my computer in Safe Mode with Networking and I was able to connect to the internet but after 3 minutes no internet pages would load and I switched my computer to normal mode.

Do you have any other devices on your network with the same issue? Do you receive an error message at all other than the Default Gateway is Broken? As in what happens when you can't connect to the internet?

This can help me in determining if this is a problem with your computer or your router

I'm the only device with any issues on this network and I'm the only one with a PC on the network. I've only recently been getting two messages that are "connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the Internet is broken" and "your computer appears to be correctly configured but the devices or resource (primary DNS server) is not responding)." When I can't connect to the internet, none of my pages load and the yellow triangle comes up until I troubleshoot and resolve the problem. The entire process repeats itself every 3 minutes at most.

Does the troubleshoot resolve the problem?

Are you connected via wireless or are you wired? If wireless then could you please plug your machine into your router through a wired connection to see if your wireless card is causing issues.

Can I ask that you follow this tutorial to change your DNS servers as a test - DNS Addressing - How to Change in Windows 7

When you get to step 7 please replace the DNS servers referenced with the following:

Primary DNS Server - 8.8.8.8

Alternate DNS Server - 8.8.4.4

Once done please test your internet connection and post back your results
