Windows 7: Dreaded "Unidentified Network" after BSOD; No fix seems to work

24 Feb 2014   #11

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

It looks like the handshake between the router and this PC is failing for some reason.

Have you tried a hard reset on the router or installing the latest firmware?

Hi Chev.

Yes, I have. I've unplugged/replugged the router (with about 60 seconds in between); i've updated to the latest firmware; i've downgraded to the previous rev of firmware; i've restored factory default settings. No dice.

As an aside, the Macbook connected fine in all of those situations with the router.

Additional updated info: Windows XP seems to freeze (not BSOD, but stops responding to input; numlock won't toggle, etc, etc) after I do a lot of stuff on the internet. In addition, i haven't gotten Ubuntu up and running yet but it seems like it has to do with the Realtek drivers for the card; i've found new drivers that i'm going to try to install tonight. I'll see if i can get more info then.

This is driving me crazy. I don't want to have to buy a new machine, but it looks like that's where I'm heading. AND ALL BECAUSE MY NETWORK WON'T CONNECT.
