Windows 7: Unidentified network, No Internet access

18 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Do what Venths said.

As your screen shot shows nothing being installed which should directly affect your wireless connection, it could be that the installation damaged a driver file somewhere.

By the way, can you connect to the internet on a wired channel?

Thanks everyone

Well, after two days of restarts and messing around with things, the darn thing started working seemingly all on it's own. I think I'll just cross my fingers and try not to touch anything for now.

Thanks everyone,

Thanks everyone,
Glad to hear that your issue was resolved by itself :).

In addition, I would advice you to create a 'System Restore Point' at this time, so that it may be useful for you in case of any future issues !!!

Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit

From the image posted in his first post, he has connected to the wireless network, it says connected. The Unidentified network means that the adapter/W7 cannot obtain all the necessary IP details from the ISP through the router. He can try and find out the IP, subnet, Default gateway, DNS and do a static IP on his adapter. If he is able to get into the router's conrol panel, he can check to see if the MAC clone option is enabled. Don't discount the fact that the router can block MAC address from reaching the ISP.

Windows 7 and Wireless Configuration

I was experiencing a similiar problem when I went from XP to W7. I could not get my wireless adapter to connect to the internet, though it appeared that I was solidly connected to the router.

As I struggled to find a solution, it dawned on me that I kept missing a simple but important configuration query setting: Public Network vs. Home Network...well say no more! Once I clicked on Home Network and answered one or two simple questions, I was once again flying high online!

Its the little things in life that matter! :)
