Windows 7: Local connection only

11 Nov 2009   #11



In the meanwhile the only solution I found was to use the second IP, in your case may be only needed to change it no any other in the same network.

This problem must be some kind of windows BUG, I don't know....

Best Regards.

win 7

since I can't find the previous thread I will post here my solution:

My ethernet had no mac, if you open device manager and find your eth card, check for mac, it can be a. value:[] and b. no value. In my case it was b. no value so I checked value and enetered one manualy (do it aphanumerical but use no letters above F)

With lan and internet there is a chance you can see lan with ipv6 but no internet because exit is ipv4 (more and more of these around as ipv6 catches more ground). I could not figure this out, searched for hours the internet and these forums, than I found a suggestion for mac problems and went and looked. This issue manifests itself same as Bonjour.

to check if this may be your issue try this:
in a browser type in - should not work,
ping - should work
in a browser type in - should work
