Missing default gateway, DNS server

Q: Missing default gateway, DNS server

Correct me if I'm wrong

(Working with old computer, getting it to work)
I was having problems with re-installing Windows XP and SP1-3 updates, and connecting to internet.and getting DNS errs.
Went into ipconfig, and had no default gateway

So, I eventually found my way to windows error reports,doing a search:
for "setuperr"

Turns out the "computer name" had errors in it with non-allowed characters.
Went into Control Panel, clicked on System, did the fix.
No underlines, etc. allowed

Looking into setuperr logs is really helpful, dont ya think?

My sister's HP Laptop is acting up. Every network that I try to connect to, it manages to connect to the network and receive an IP address, however it does not get the following:

default gateway

It's running Vista 32Bit Home Edition, and I have tried resetting to factory defaults to no avail. Also, I have tried connecting to many networks all ending with the same problem... Any ideas?

Hi,
I have been having some trouble with my internet for awhile now. It fine one second and than it will get really slow and eventually stop working. When I troubleshoot to see what the problem is it either gives me DNS server is not responding or default gateway is not available, sometimes it will give me both. It says it fixes the default gateway problem but it will show up again 5 minutes later. If someone could help me that would be awesome

A:DNS server not responding and default gateway is not available

RELEVANCY SCORE 68

Sometimes I have internet connection for a few seconds, if I'm lucky maybe three minutes. I can get two different messages when I run the Windows Troubleshooting option: "DNS server isn't responding" or "The default gateway is not available." This has been going on about a week. I have not made any changes to my laptop, not even a Windows update, or a driver update, or anything like that.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655 laptop. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I live in a rural area that does not have home telephone or internet lines, so I access the internet using a 3G data card. There is only one small spot in my house that receives a signal so I have a Zoom Travel Router that I plug the data card into and then use my computer in a different room in the house. This setup has been working great for almost two years.

Below is the coding in the ipconfig file. It's pretty short. The default gateway is the ip address for the Zoom Router as provided in the User Manual. I talked to my ISP provider and they said they could only help me if I plugged the data card directly into the computer. They could not or would not help me if I used a Wifi router.

If you tell me I need to make changes to the ipconfig file, then you will have to tell me how to do that. I'm not afraid to make changes, I'm just not techie enough that I know how to do it.

Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. I hate being without the internet.

Can anyone explain why the first packet is to the default gateway and not the DNS server?

I have a client machine set up
IP 192.168.1.2
default gateway 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS server 192.168.1.53

What confuses me, is when I clear the NetBIOS and DNS cache, and then try to ping another computer on my network by name,
eg 'ping computer2'

The first packet sent is a DNS packet, requesting the IP of computer2.mydomain.com
But it is sent to the default gateway

The next packet is the same but sent to the IP I have said is the DNS server, this the packet I expected to see first.

Can anyone explain why the first packet is to the default gateway and not the DNS server?

Hope that is the only required information. If you think you can answer, with more information, just ask.

I am running Windows 7 64-bit. My Internet connection keeps getting dropped, and when I run the troubleshooter, I can get two different messages: "(DNS server) is not responding" or "The default gateway is not available." When I get the former, I have to restart my router. Any amount of time later, my connection is dropped again. It can be a day or just a couple of minutes.

I'm using an Arris DG860A provided by time warner cable. Seems to drop more frequently when i run a P2P program. I also thought about upgrading my Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller from version 7.50.1123.2011 to version 7.073.0723.2013

I have one Linksys router serve as a default gateway (192.168.0.1).
But now I want my another linksys WRT54G (192.168.0.5) to be the DHCP server, not the Gateway.
The DHCP works, but once the computers get the IP from the DHCP server, the gateway shown is 192.168.0.5.

Is there any way to make it the DHCP server not the default gateway?
How to or what to set at the WRT54G so that the default gateway will be 192.168.0.1?

Hello.

On my W2K server I have two NIC's, one for the external connection to the internet, and one for the internal connection to my workstation. I was messing around (computers and beer, bad...) so I'm not sure what I've done, but here are the details.

On the internal NIC I've specified an ip of 198.162.255.1, a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and a default gateway of 198.162.255.1 (I'm assuming the default gateway, because the server is cabled directly to the workstation, is the IP of the server.). Using a default gateway that matches the IP of the server was working, but now when I ipconfig the default gateway is blank. Furthermore, when I ipconfig on the workstation, it picks up an IP from DHCP, but again the gateway is blank. The workstation and server cannot communicate other than the workstation grabbing the IP address.

Can anyone make any suggestions that might lead to a resolution? I'm fresh out of ideas.

Thanks in advance.
Kevin

Hey all,

Well I've had nothing but trouble from my wireless stuff ever since I got it. The problem I have now is that I'm trying to forward my ports (I'm using a tutorial, so I'm not savvy with it at all...), but to do so requires a default gateway address, I believe.

I've been on the command line thingy (cmd, then ipconfig/all) and had a look, and mine's missing - there's a gap where it should be, so I don't have a clue what's going on or how to get one or why it's not there. I'm running on Windows XP, so any help and guidance that anyone could give would be great!

Remember guys, I'm not very clever about this sort of thing. Cheers!

My desktop computer was not connecting to the internet even though there was a connection. I ran a diagnostic test and it said that my default IP gateway, DCHP server and DNS server all failed. I don't know how to fix this problem so I did several things. I did an ipconfig release/renew in the cmd promt, I manually typed in my ip address, subnet mask and default gateway and i erased and added the same wireless connection and still nothing happened. Then I logged into my router on another computer and changed the data encryption from WPA to WEP so I can get on the internet with my laptop since my laptop did not support WPA encryption and walla I was able to connect to the internet on my desktop. I am not sure how changing the encryption from WPA to WEP has anything to do with a failure from my DNS and DCHP server and default IP gaeway. Can someone explain so I can understand this?

Hey,

So I'm somewhat of an idiot when it comes to computers, and I'm having quite a hard time here.

I currently have 3 laptops running on a D-Link DIR-615 wireless router.

2 of them are running fine, but the 3rd one can't connect to the Internet. Well, sometimes it will for a few seconds, but most of the time, it will time out, and Internet's always dropped.

When I ran a Intel PROset/Wireless Manual Diagnostic, all the test pass except for the Ping Test. Sometimes, it will say "Response: Default Gateway, No Response: DHCP server", although most of the times, both have no response.

Here's the interesting thing: I have the laptop for about 6 weeks now. At the beginning, it worked perfectly well. After 4 weeks, Internet kept crashing. Did a system restore, and Internet worked for a few days ...then, out of the blue, started crashing again, and now I can't connect ever (even though I always show a strong signal reception on my icon).

I have no idea what to do here. I've been going through forums, tried the following:

- Changing wireless channel
- TCP/IP stack repair options
- Calling Dell (what a joke that was...)

I just don't understand why one laptop doesn't connect (even though it did 3 weeks ago without problem) and the 2 other ones work great ...my roomates are getting tired of me borrowing their laptops, so I need to figure this out!

Is yours farther from the router than the others? Have you installed the newest driver for the wireless adaptor?

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

Hey, this is a horrible problem I've been getting today. I have Windows XP service pack 3, I use nVIDIA audio for my speakers and I use realtek for my wireless adapter.

I booted my computer up this morning and nVIDIA firewall popped up and said it had an error that it must reboot to fix (it did not give any detail or error numbers) I only use antihacking with windows firewall so it's kinda weird that happened. I Just kinda ignored it and tried to go on google chrome. Chrome said that the DNS lookup had failed. I also tried firefox, IE, and safari. I tried repairing the connection multiple times and it almost always failed at Ip refreshing. It did successfully do it one time but I still couldn't connect.

I rebooted my computer and I got no error so I thought it might be fixed. I looked up some things on my ipod, and I got no good results, so I went to command prompt and entered ipconfig /all. It says that the media is disconnected and the default gateway is missing. I don't mean that the gateway says 0.0.0.0 it is just a blank space where the address should be.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

So I boot up my Vista laptop today only to find that I can't connect to the internet over wireless or over lan. I can, however, connect on my desktop.
I reset the router... still nothing.
Unplug the router for a minute, plug back in... still no.
Try again under linux (FC11), nothing.

So upon further investigation, ipconfig in Vista returns...
Link-local ipv6 addresstoo long to care)
ipiv4 address: 192.168.1.01 (as expected)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : (blank)

This isn't right, default gateway being blank? It makes no sense.

The weird thing is, vista is saying it's connected just fine to the network as a local only, but it's not showing any of the other systems on the network.

What's the deal? After a quick google, it would seem a lot of people think that reimaging the laptop is the best course of action, but that's not really something I want to end up doing (does anyone ever want to?)

So, why is my Default Gateway missing and how do I get it back?

Thanks

I've browsed through other threads, but only lightly, so sorry if I've missed a solution to this problem in one of them.

The back round story is my DSL/internet was working fine for the past few days, then suddenly today it ceased all connectivity. This seems to happen each time I reinstall an OS for who knows why. I searched around the net, trying to find my routers IP address to set it up, as I remember this working in the past. (My mother calls tech support, not me, I only overheard it, otherwise it would've solidified in my memory.)

I tried typing in the two IPs shown, but to no avail, so I'm assuming the default gateway is the one I need to access my router. In other threads, the posters are generally asked to run cmd > ipconfig /all, so I took the liberty of doing so now.

Oh. And I'm posting from a laptop, the PC internet doesn't work. The wireless works fine, which only verifies the internets connectivity. I'll try to not make any typing errors copying this.

A:Internet Not Working, Default Gateway Missing

I have a small network with a multi-homed server. The 1st NIC on the server has an IP address of 192.168.2.1 and the default gateway was set to 192.168.2.7. The Second NIC card has an IP of 10.0.2.7 and no default gateway given. The client PC's are configured for DHCP, and when they log in, are successfully given an IP address and the default gateway I assigned on the first card.
However, here is where my problem lies:
The server can ping both cards
The clients can only ping the 1st card.
Neither the Server or clients can ping the default gateway.

I have RIP installed, and IP Forwarding marked, so I can't understand why the default gateway is not working.

Anyone know anything on this?
 

A:{Solved} - Unable to Ping Default Gateway on Multi-homed Server

Greetings

Ok... since you have not given all the information, let me make a guess at what it is:

192.168.2.7 = IP address of a router to the rest of the world
10.0.2.x = Internal network

Ok... here is the problem:

You have given the client's the IP address of the router as their router... however, it is NOT on their network.

This is what you need to do:

Change the default gateway settings on the client's machines to the IP address 10.0.2.7 (and add the 198.168.2.1 address as the default gateway on the server).

So... this is how the routing works. I am on a client machine, and I want to talk to the world. I send my packet to my Default gateway (the server). The server then routes it from itself (on the 10.x.x.x network) to that network card's default gateway (the NIC on the 192.168.x.x network). It then goes from that NIC to that NIC's default gateway, 192.168.2.7, and out to the world.

I hope this helps

Hello, I am having a somewhat bizarre, extremely frustrating issue. I can connect to the internet via wireless just fine, and everything will be hunky-dory for a while. After a while, however (this varies anywhere from a day to a week), there will be a small hiccup on the connection, and then something fails in the Acquiring Network Address stage. My computers will get an IP, but they will not get the default gateway or DNS server.

I say computers because this happens on both my PC and laptop. This issue does NOT, however, occur for anyone else in the household.

I have tried a plethora of fixes, from simple computer reboots to fiddling with all sorts of settings, and nothing works to reestablish the connection. My father has also tried fixing it, to no avail. I have to go and reset my router, which also interrupts TV service, because it is through AT&T U-Verse. Needless to say, this does not make other people in the household very happy, and I really shouldn't have to be resetting my router every couple of days like that.

My PC uses a Netgear WG111v3 adapter and is Windows XP. My laptop has on-board Wifi and is Windows XP Professional. I am not sure why I am the only person in the household that experiences this issue. Could certain programs like AIM be causing problems?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Ok, so because the internet company hasn't helped me at all, I have decided to reach out with my own words. I've browsed this forum for a bit, and nothing seems like it would help. I don't know what I am doing, but I have been having intermittent connectivity issues.

What has been going on is that my internet connection has been dropping several times throughout the day, everyday. This issue was only affecting my computer at first, but I moved my modem away from my old tv and the issue has moved onto the two laptops in this house. I get errors such as "Default Gateway is missing" and "Link between router, modem and the internet is broken."

I only moved my modem because last time I called my ISP the guy basically told me that the error was not on my end, but was because I had my modem sitting right next to my old tube tv. Thing is, up until three months ago I had not had this problem at all. The technician who came out to my house told me that the error was at the pole, and nothing in my house was causing it. I've lived at this house for two years, and the internet was a fresh install, all new wires and everything.

I am reaching out to you guys because this is affecting my online college work. Attached is my ipconfig /all.

Hey,

Before continuing, this is a thread that I currently have going, if you want extra details on what's been going on. I'll try to explain it quickly here:

My laptop won't connect to wireless Internet. Doesn't matter where I am, so it's not a router problem.
I've tried many things (can be seen on the other thread), and still can't get wireless Internet connection.

Before I go any further, I'm not great with computers, so any instructions, please, eaassyyy!

Now the weird thing is, when I'm in Safe Mode with networking, Internet seems to be working fine!
As you can see in the title, my Ping test is showing something is wrong.

I have no idea what to do here. I've been going through forums, tried the following:

- Changing wireless channel
- TCP/IP stack repair options
- Calling Dell (what a joke that was...)
- ran an ipconfig /all (see on the other thread through my forum link)
- removed Mcafee (using Windows Essentials), and when I did that, Internet worked for 5-10mins then crashed again.
- checked the Mac filtering settings on my router settings

Also, my computer crashed the other day (got a blue screen, shut itself down). I posted the details in the thread.

Finally, my great friend the moderator Etaf asked me to post this to see if I have a problem that this forum could help me with ... I read the 1st post, here is the mentioned information (I couldn't do #3 because I run on 64-bit):

Hello, I have read a few similar posts and the resolutions but it doesn't appear to be working for me. Any help is appreciated. I apologize if I am leaving out any important info.

I'm running a Windows XP PC, wired to a Verizon FIOS modem/router, model MI424WR. I have a second computer connected via wire to this and a third computer connected wirelessly. As of 2 hours ago and for months, all 3 machines have worked fine.

My PC froze while playing a game and I reset it. This is not common but it has happened before without issue upon start up. However this time I received a limited/no connectivity message. When repair was attempted it didn't work because "the network did not assign a network address to the computer". The 2nd and 3rd PC work fine though.

Back on my first PC, when I view the details there is a physical address, IP address, and subnet mask, BUT there is no Default Gateway, DNS Server, or WINS Server.

I have tried the other suggestions I read about RESET TCP/IP stack and RESET WINSOCK entries then restarting my machine but neither of these worked.

Under device manager my NVIDEA nForce networking adapter says it is working properly and there isn't any red X or yellow indicators.

Make sure you have the latest correct wireless driver (if a laptop integrated adapter the driver should be from the PC manufacturer's web site).

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

I am using a router with internet access with the default gateway of 192.168.1.1 and another router with intranet access with the default gateway of 192.168.105.4 and the internet router is not being accessed even with the correct address. It thinks those two are the same.

A:Default Gateway not doing anything

Based on my limited understanding, a router wouldn't have a default gateway... they each have an address, and it can be used as your client system's default gateway.

What is your network mask on your client? What is the ip of your client? My guess is that your client is 192.168.105.x with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 based on your description. The client will send all requests outside of the local network to whichever is set as its default gateway, which should (I believe) be on the same subnet.

Since you have 2 gateways, you will probably need to do some sort of routing beyond what is provided with a default gateway.

I am using an Acer Aspire One netbook running Windows 7 Starter--for now; I plan to uprade--and an Atheros AR5B93 wireless card. Unfortunately, I am frequently unable to to access the internet. When Windows executes an automated repair, it reports that the "default gateway is not available." It resets the network card, but that only fixes the problem for a very short time, sometimes only a matter of seconds. How can I remedy this problem on a more permanent basis? Thanks in advance.

I am connected to the internet via a wireless router and an extender...The connection was good and had a strong signal. Now it is off and on, mostly off. When I can get a connection, it sometimes lasts only as long as it takes to click on a link. Then no servie... I seldom have a connection for more than a few minutes at a time.

I have seen several error messages when I trouble-shoot. The one I see most often is "The default gateway is not available'.

I did not think to write the other errors down, hopefully a fix for this will take care of the problem.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. And once I go home I may not be able to respond in a timely manner.
 

A:'The default gateway is not available'

Is this the only PC that disconnects - do other devices connected work OK - if so how are they connected to the router - wireless or wired

would you post the following tests when the internet is working OK, and then repeat ALL the tests when the internet disconnects.
Make sure you also indicate on the reply which tests are for what condition.

please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.

Please post back here the make and exact model of the router and if you have a separate modem, the make and exact model of the modem.

Please make a note of the status of the lights on the modem and on the router when working normally - post that light status here.
Now when the internet disconnects make a note of the status of the lights for the modem and router here again. also note which have changed.

you listed as having norton and fully upto date - are you subscribed to norton or using a trail version
What other firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Mcafee , AVG etc
------------------------------------------------------------------------
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working... Read more
