Windows 7: No networking - new Windows 7 computer - TCP/IPv4 and T

06 Dec 2009   #1

Windows (XP, 2000, Vista, 7)
No networking - new Windows 7 computer - TCP/IPv4 and T

No networking - new Windows 7 computer - TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6 - Odd IPCONFIG results
The computer is Windows-7 64-bit.
I'm on Comcast - cable-modem.
The router is a DLink gaming router. I've bypassed the router - that didn't help.
I've been stuggling with this for days - and I DID connect once, briefly. If I recall, the connection just went bad - I was looking at pages, and then I clicked something and waited and waited (I think. I've been stressed by this, so I can't say that was exactly how it happened, but I think so.)
This is a computer I'm setting up for someone. It will ultimately be used alone, in a home, plugged into Verizon FIOS.
My network, here when I'm working, is called DavidNet. I changed the workgroup from WORKGROUP to DAVIDNET.
There is Norton Security on this new machine. Turning it off didn't help. (I might need to uninstall it - but that would leave me naked, except for the Windows firewall.)
When I look at the Norton view - there have been 2 different results: An old result was that it saw my other computers, and presented them by name. I changed them all to Trusted. Now it sees the correct MAC addreses of the other computers.but not their names.
It says I belong to "unknown network."
This computer has 2 TCP/IP entries: TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6.
When I run IPCONFIG, I see:
Connectinon-specific DNS prefix: blank
Link-local IPv6 address: some long string full of numbers
Link-local IPv4 address: An address that means NOTHING to me. WHoIS says it is UNKNOWN.
Subnet mask:
Default Gateway: blank
Other things I've tried:
Assigning and address on my private network:
RELEASE and RENEW. I think it hung on RENEW.

Windows 7

Had similar problem: After several Hours with 4 Windows Techs... I had a laundry list of problems including no sound, no backup, no internet, no ready boost, no security, etc... after an aborted program installation and a bad Windows shutdown.
IF POSSIBLE, CREATE A RESTORE POINT BEFORE PROCEEDING (this may not be possible if Windows Backup service is disabled). Additional information about service settings can be found at Windows 7 Service Configurations by Black Viper.
Start---execute on command line "service.msc" Or Start--All Programs Administrative Tools-- Component Services---Services (local) [maximize window] Inspect the list of component services (screens of them). Select disabled services one-by-one; reset Startup Type to "automatic" (a few won't allow this or will reset properly at reboot). You can attempt to start each service as they are activated (some are dependent on other services, view with tab of dialog) or reboot after all are activated.
I had about 3/4 of the services disabled. Took about 3/4 hour to reactivate. Results were pleasing to the eye and effort!
