Windows 7: Can't connect internet, Unidentified Network

25 Apr 2011   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

I downloaded Knoppix 6.4 Live CD and it couldn't connect to the internet either. I'm going to give up now and see if warrenty will fix this. If not then I'm buying a wireless router and USB wireless dongle.

Thanks for all the help guys!

Acer X3400 ethernet error

Acer network error 9200 nvidia
The acer X3400 refurb that I purchased always seemed to have a flaky network connection. Then, I think, it's power strip got turned off while it was running and it no longer connected to any network. The emachine had trouble running from a cold start and I got a pink screen several times, once when loading the nVidia chipset driver from Acer. That's when I shut the ethernet controller off in bios. (From a restart, press Delete during boot, Select Integrated Peripherals, select Onboard Lan Controller, press enter, select Disabled.) This corrected all boot issues so far. Next, I went to Amazon and bought "USB 2.0 to Ethernet Converter" for $8.87. (I know this is a USB2 10/100 bps RJ45 adapter, but reviews do say the win7 drivers are embedded. Also, the emachine's got a couple free USB slots, hehe...feel free to get a better USB network device as needed.) I will report on the outcome of this device, but so far, multiple reboots of the emachine have been flawless. I can't say for sure that there is an an electrical problem with the 9200 nvidia ethernet's just my opinion. (Love that you loaded Knoppix, that sh$% rocks! Reminds me of using HP-UX, except, for any proc:>), go linux!)

Win 7 Ultimate 64 bits

This happens to me each time I restart my computer. Guess you have an HP laptop.
IT's due to HP's poor/buggy implementation of Miniport.

I haven't been able to solve the problem for good.
But temporarily this is what I do and it works:

Go to Network and Sharing center
Click on Change Adapter Settings
Deactivate the connexion(s)
Reactivate it and it should work.
Have to do it every day and it works.
But wish I could permanently solve the issue.

P.S. Acer has the same problem as HP if Broadcom card is used in machines not made specifically for Windows 7. The web is full of such issues.
