Windows 7: Yet another specifical "no internet/strange gateway"

Yet another specifical "no internet/strange gateway"

Hi to everyone, glad I found this forum, I guess I'm not alone.

I read couple of old threads on this issue, but mine's not going well as well.

I will try to be as short as possible. Computer info is in the profile. Other than that I have a clean and legal copy of 64-bit win 7 professional. No crappy software installed, the system is 2 weeks old, except networking, works perfect.

I do have to point out that I have an Adobe CS4 installed. It's not the whole master collection, only Bridge, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat Pro.

First of all, a known issue was brought up from Apple called a Bonjour software which was incorporated into Adobe CS3 also and it was zeroconf networking (discovery of network disks with project files, suitable for large designer teams to share their work easily). In CS4 it is integrated into every Adobe program alongside with server program Version Cue Server. I don't have the VC server installed for that matter.
That can be read on their knownledgebase pages.

I went through two scenarios ...

New install of win 7 + fresh Adobe install without any Version Cue hassle with it. It resulted in my gateway constantly changing to I could see that in tcp/ip settings. The boxes are grayed out in DHCP mode, but said for the gateway instead of Status said too.

I reinstalled the Adobe suite again without dramatic components, stopped Adobe CSI at startup and disabled Version Cue lookups in Adobe programs. Fine. Now my gateway doesn't change to but I still have no internet.

I use DHCP all the time, static doesn't help either. Router is netgear WRG614 wireless, no problems with it - other computers have no issues with the internet. LAN cards are nVidia with realtek chips both gigabit.

Dropouts are random. In both scenarios I had the netbios over tcp/ip enabled (NOD32 issue with workgroup computers). Now since the last drop out I have rolled back my nvidia drivers to Microsoft ones (before I had nforce 15.25 installed, via installer - at the next possible dropout I'll be installing them manually by exctracting them from the installer) and set the netbios back to default.

I always get a yellow triangle around exclamation mark when it dies.Have to say I'm a power user and haven't got a problem like that. Nothing helped ... nothing. Any ideas? I'll post ASAP if something happens again.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

Have you tried the newer 15.51 nvidia drivers? Some even have luck with the older Vista drivers.

Have you tried to disable side scaling yet? It's been known to fix the problem with Nvidia chipsets.
Disable Receive-side scaling for NVIDIA nForce network controller
1. Click Start, type Devmgmt.msc into Search bar and press Enter.
2. Expend Network adapters, right click on the NVIDIA nForce network controller and click Properties.
3. Switch to Advanced tab, highlight Receive side scaling under Property list and select Disable under Value list.
4. Click OK.

You can also try the newer 15.53 drivers from here>

Ipv6 is not the problem.

I forgot to add that I also disabled the IPV6 on my adapters since the last incident. It should die till now I guess.

And a big OOOOOPS! I have so much drivers in my driver folder I probably didn't look to the right one. I did the initial install with 15.51 drivers. 15.25 weren't even touched on my windows 7.

I am starting to feel that IPV6 is the problem or netbios. I'll get the nvidia drivers back and go bit by bit. I always have to reverse engineer everything otherwise I'll lose my mind if the problem gets back again after a while.
