Windows 7: Default Gateway not available, no fix works

Default Gateway not available, no fix works

OK, getting the "default gateway not available" error like everyone else.

However, it ONLY does it on one router, a Belkin F5D8236-4-v3. Every single other wireless connection never has a problem, only this one. I have the IP address set to auto detect.

It's so maddening, I had to buy a 25 foot ethernet cable to walk around the house with.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forum.

Your router may be experiencing wireless interference from other routers nearby that are also using auto detect.

You could try going into your router settings and change from auto detect to channel 6 or channel 11.

Of course, there is always the possibilty there is a problem with your Belkin router.
