Windows 7: No internet access due to an unidentified LAN network

No internet access due to an unidentified LAN network

Hello all,

I'll try to explain the situation as good as I can. After always having a pretty poor wireless internet connection, I finally got an ethernet cable connection. It was working fine, even though I sometimes lost my internet connection while the other members of my family still had internet connection.. but I have never achieved downloading speeds this high before. But today, it showed as an unidentified network and kept showing as unidentified.
I have no idea how to solve this. I searched on google for a fix and found some "solutions", but none worked. So I am back to using the wireless connection and this is pretty much my last hope. Can somebody help me fix this?

Yours truly,
