Windows 7: Unidentified Network, Windows 7

I just tried using installing Linksys' latest firmware but it still didn't work. Then tried it again with Tomato v1.28 and still didn't work. Edit: just tried DD-WRT to no avail.

Any other suggestions? Again -- really appreciate your time and helpfulness.

It is a Linksys WRT54GL v1.0 router.

That program usually has the bonjour service which tends to cause these sorts of problems. I mistakingly thought that everyone has heard about this problem by now.

Under the Services tab uncheck the service called "bonjour ##Id_String1.6844[... and then a bunch of numbers]" by Apple, disable the service. Reboot machine.

Then to get rid of the service.

1. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Bonjour
2. Rename the mdnsNSP.dll file in that folder to mdnsNSP.old
3. Restart your computer
4. Delete the Program Files\Bonjour folder
reboot and try to connect.

If you installed Adobe CS5 then you also have the bonjour service. Google around if you don't believe me. There are complaints about the bonjour service causing this exact problem all over the internet. It's been going on for well over two years now.

In just the last month I have seen "and fixed" this problem no less than ten different times. There are also ways to remove the service by using the registry.

Really? That's odd because I can't find any Bonjour registries associated to this machine. There is no Bonjour file under Program Files nor does it show up in the Services tab or the Control Panel list of installed programs. Are you sure about that? Maybe I am looking in the wrong places?

I see that you have 169 IP. Please follow these steps and let me know.

1) if you have windows 7 or vista run command prompt as an administrator. with windows xp just run it, once you in command prompt, type IPCONFIG /RELEASE, then type IPCONFIG /RENEW, Then type IPCONFIG /RELEASE again.

2) turn off your computer, when your computer is turning off, turn off your router and then modem. (WAIT FOR 5 MINS ATLEAST)

3) turn on your modem, wait for 3 mins, turn on your router, wait for 3 mins. turn on your computer. check your internet connection.

Yes I'm sure but there is no telling where they hide the service these days. Google for Adobe CS5 and bonjour problems. There are ways to shut the service off using the registry. You may need to reset your TCP/IP stack afterwards.

This problem has been going on for a long time now. And about fifty more just like it.
