Windows 7: nVidia nForce Network Problems

nVidia nForce Network Problems

I hope that's the reason this isn't working...

When I start up my computer (Windows 7 Ultimate (not the beta)) My internet connection thing says it can't connect because I'm trying to link to multiple networks. Well, that would make sense... if I were using a wireless network. I'm using a network cable to router and cannot access my own network. But even that's not the problem. I don't care about my network. I just want to connect to the internet.

Well, to get a quick fix I must disable my network device, and re-enable it. Then it acts as if there was never a problem.

Today, before I did that I wanted to see what the problem was, so I opened the status of my network connection. I am receiving all kinds of bytes but not sending any. So then I disable and refresh my network connection and it all works.

I fixed this in the beta, but forgot what to do now that it's been 3 months. Can anyone help? Thanks.

EDIT: I also tried updating the drivers. No good.

When you first boot, and you can't connect, what do you get when you run an ipconfig /all? Open a command prompt then type:

Code:
ipconfig /all
Copy/paste the results here, please.

Since Abit went bankrupt, don't expect any Windows 7 drivers. Some people who have Abit boards have found some success by using an older nForce Vista driver. See if this thread helps:

Abit IN9 32X-MAX SLI and windows 7 turns off my nvidia ethernet.

Maybe this thread over at nVidia will help:

Driverguide.com . Even if abit went out of business driverguide would still have some drivers. According your post Nvidia is the man. of your NIC, go to there sight and try some different drivers. I had issues with vista and a nic card, and had to use a 98 driver to make it work. The problem is MS is cranking out an O/S before hardware manufactures have time to create bug free drivers. Alas MS only cares about itself...... Just an observation not trying to start a debate.

I didn't say there are no drivers, I said not to expect any Windows 7 drivers. If you visit Abit, you'll find drivers for older operating systems for that particular motherboard.

Quite a few people with IN9 motherboards have had issues with Windows 7; the link I posted to the nVidia forums is a lengthy thread that covers a lot of nForce issues and possible solutions.

I do, but the moment the window opens, it closes and I can't read anything.

Click on the orb, then type cmd. Then, in the command window, enter ipconfig /all.

Did you review the link I posted?

Does the board have more than one NIC on it? If so, try the other one. I have an old EVGA nForce board and it connects fine (only Vista drivers available).

That said, I think you would be connecting to the internet only through your LAN, so you might look into that first.

Sorry for the long wait. I was needed at work every day for the past 3 weeks, so here's my ipconfig/all thing BEFORE disabling my network every boot:

I just previewed my post and after looking at it, does it have anything to do with the default gateway being 0.0.0.0 and how would I break that one? Thanks!

EDIT: Keg, I downloaded, but nothing new happened. Thanks, anyway.
