Windows 8, shows Unidentified Network

Q: Windows 8, shows Unidentified Network

Recently upgraded to windows 8, and the Ethernet connection on my laptop repeatedly shows Unidentified network. I re-installed windows 7, and it works fine. The Consumer preview and release preview of 8 worked fine too. Now, since i am back to windows 8, the problem is back again. Tried everything on various posts on net that i can, but of no help.
The Internet connects for few seconds initially, wen the network is in the process of "Identifying Network". But it stops, as soon as it identifies it as Unidentified network.
Any help on it ???

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

It sounds like the network driver isn't right.

Can you post the ipconfig/all from this machine?

Hi Paul,
I am on a private wireless network, name showing in notification area.
Problem 1:
A week or two ago, an unidentified wireless network suddenly appeared in the notification area. Name of the network is Vortex.  No response when I click or right click on it, to 'forget this network'. Drop down menu connect automatically is ticked-
when I remove tick-- it returns.  When I click connect, window opens prompting for a password.  Often when I want to check if its still there it is there momentarily and then disappears altogether. I have no path for this 'rogue' network, so cannot
search for its location on my PC, so there's no way I know how to remove it.  I have a very stringent antivirus, malware application and also use Malwarebytes to remove infections and spyware. However, I searched online for this Vortex network and it
seems that it is malware-- however, after full scans of my PC, with both my internet security app and Malwarebytes, this Vortex network still appears in the network notification window below my private network server.  How do I remove it?  And what
settings should I temporarily activate in the Network and Sharing Center in order to view all networks on my PC in Command prompt?   This network can surely not be a neighbour's network-- as my connection settings are very private.  I cannot block
it with Firewall, because no path is available to do so. I have a feeling this Vortex may have been bundled wi... Read more

So this has been showing up for the past week or so under my network connections. I am not using Ethernet as I have no cable plugged into my PC; I have been using WiFi instead. This problem isn't at one place, I have been using WiFi on different routers in few different locations but this "connection" remains there.

Any ideas on what this could be and why it is occurring? Also, it takes at least 2-3 minutes for my computer to connect to WiFi when it is booted after shut down/ sleep on any router. Can this be related to the problem above?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Looks like it still thinks you are connected to the Ethernet connection. You would have to pull up Network adapters in Network Control Center, to see why you are getting the limited connection. You are not using a VPN per chance?

Strange issue that just started today. My Ethernet adapter shows unidentified network and none of my apps have internet access, however my web browsers work just fine. I am even making this post from the adapter that supposedly has no access. I have been searching around for a solution, but no problem seems similar to mine. Check out the screenshot below. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello all,
I have tried all the similar solutions to my problem but non eworks.

I have just installed WIndows 7 Home 64bit.
Wireless works (slooooooow).
The cable from my Billion router/modem is recognised but does not work.

In network and sharing centre I can see Wireless as Home Network and cable as:

Unidentified network - Public Network (no link = can't change it).
The 4 TCP/IPv4 is set at automatic. Even if I put the Billion default address 192.168.1.254 and subnet and gateway nothing.

Tried going into ipconfig and it gives me a 169.254.176.23 (=no internet connection then, but I knew that).

The wireless IP is correct at 192.168.1.2

From what I have understood from all the fora I have to change the network from Public to Home.

How do I do it?

I would be very grateful for any sort of help.

I had Windows Vista and everything was fine, today I decided to use my free Windows 7 upgrade and I can't connect through my router. It started when I downloaded Windows 7 and I went to connect and it showed my network it said "Unable to connect to "network"". Then after a little why, it didn't even show my network their at all. It just said "Unidentified Network, No network access". I've tried nearly everything, I'm connected now through the modem, but obviously I want to fix this situation with my router so I can connect through my router.

Also, every since I got Windows 7, I can't go to my routers IP address at http://192.168.1.1 - it just won't open the page. I was going to reset all router settings to default but it wouldn't let me access it.

I did read a lot of the other threads on this subject, I've tried Disabling then Enabling Local Network Connection, didn't work. Please help me guys.

Well i had the problem when im doing the ICS between a computer with internet (win7) and a computer with ethernet cable (Winxp)
When i unplug the cable or the other computer restart or whatever i get the message of "unidentified network" "internet innaccesible", "no Network Access" etc.
I know is a kick in the balls and its so hard to know what is the problem cuz is a little bit tricky, i have searched everywhere and nothing helped me out, i tried bridged, updating drivers, disabling/enabling parameters, disabling firewall, editing gpedit etc, it was driving me nuts just watching the "Public Network, Unidentified Network"

I have tested and i did the next config doing lots of trial and error
Worked perfect for me.
I hope it helps you out too guys.

Do the steps in the next order:
Both computers in same Workgroup.
Both computers with bonjour disabled or deleted.

Then I connected my desktop to the internet and then connected my laptop and desktop using a crossover network cable. Both my machines have got win 7 installed. So when I created the network my laptop identified the network and allowed it to me to choose between home, work and public networks. I am able to share the internet too. But my desktop keeps on saying unidentified network which prevents me from joining my homegroup. I don't think there is problem with driver. So any help would be heartily appreciated.

Select both adapters using shift+click, the internet connection adapter and the laptop connection adapter in the network connections window, right click and bridge connections. That's by far the easiest way to overcome this issue...

It looks like you aren't getting anything from the router, no default gateway or IP nothing valid there at all.

Have you tried resetting your router yet? Have you tried to update the routers firmware?
Run these commands at your command prompt and see if anything changes.
netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)
netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)
Then ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew

HI all, I am new to this forum and have been having the following problem for about a month now;
Two Wire 2700 router connected to my Windows 7 pc by network cable works perfectly. Also no problem with the wireless connection either. Added a switch to enable better positioning of the router to the master phone socket and cannot now connect to the router with the network cable only wifi. When I plug the pc into the switch it detects an unidentified network with no internet connection. Doing the normal repair steps ends in a message about ip configuration.
Any ideas bearing in mind that if I take the switch out the PC connects to the router with the same cable perfectly. Yes I have tried two different switches and three different cables.
I am sure it's something so easy to fix I shall laugh about it...........
 

A:Unidentified network Windows 7

Hmm; sounds like your switch is acting like a router AND creating an IP address conflict.

A switch should NOT provide DHCP service and not provide DNS settings, so

wire PC->Switch (and nothing else, Not WiFi either).

get a command prompt and enter IPCONFIG /ALL
what do you get as a reply? should not contain ANY ip addresses anywhere.

now wire PC->->Router (with wifi disabled), rerun the ipconfig; should now have ip addresses

finally, wire PC->switch->Router (wifi disabled) and the ipconfig results should be identical to those immediately above.

I've tried simply resetting the router, still nothing.

This problem is driving me insane, I swear. I'd fixed it once, but now its back to haunt me and I have no idea what causes it. It's just so random.

I've posted a thread about it here before, but had managed to fix the problem. What I did to get rid of it was:
1. Set "Speed & Duplex" in my adapter properties to a fixed speed (in my case it was 10 Mbit Half-Duplex, the others didn't work).
2. Changed network speed (WAN port speed) in my router from 10/100 Mbit Auto to fixed "100 Mbit".

That seemed to have done the trick and everything worked for 2 weeks. Today I go out for lunch for 30 minutes and when I come back the connection is gone. I reset the adapter - nothing. I've tried all the regular stuff again, reinstalled the drivers etc., reset the router/laptop but it still can't find the network.

It's a disaster as this is my work laptop and I have to be online all the time. What on Earth could've happened while I was out? The laptop was locked (and I always have it locked whenever I leave it) so it's absolutely impossible that somebody had messed with my settings.

I've checked - the router & adapter settings are still the same but for some reason the settings that had worked for 2 weeks don't work now anymore. I'm going mad.

The problem persists in safe mode and I've tried every Speed&Duplex setting now - nothing works anymore. The adapter doesn't seem to be absolutely dead as it recognises the cable, but still can't get on the network.

I am running Windows 7 on my PC but I installed Windows 10 Enterprise as a virtual machine using VMWare Player. My Network Adapter setting on VMWare are set to "NAT:Used to share the host's IIP address". This works just fine when I run Ubuntu VM but
does not work when I run Windows 10 VM.


I tried to select other Network Adapter settings e.g. Bridged etc. but no luck. I am not using a static IP but the one assigned automatically seems to be of a private network I.e. 192.168.#.#


I am not really good with networks. I followed a tutorial online to change the startup types of the network settings but that also did not help.


Conclusion: When I run Ubuntu VM on VMWare player with network adapter settings set to NAT, it works. So I think the problem is with Windows 10 network settings, maybe?

That shows no connection of any kind. If you've already done the stack repair, try booting in Safe Mode with Networking using a wired connection and post another IPCONFIG /ALL

You should use a known working router port and cable for this test.

Hello,
My laptop is unable to connect to the internet. It recognizes my wireless connection (public network) as "unidentified network" and Access: "Local only." I've tried using many other solutions but I still haven't found a way to fix this. My other laptops, computers, and gaming devices are able to connect to my linksys router except for this laptop.
My computer information is as follows

I hope this helps as well:

I posted a reply on a similar topic but figured I'd start a new thread even though it seems this has been discussed a lot.

I have a verizon wireless cell access point. I connect a w7hp pc to it and set it as a home network. I also have a nic in the same w7hp box connected to a local 10/100/1g switch with a bunch of other stuff on it, an xp pc, a ps3, a directtv dvr, and a majicjack. That's my home LAN.

I'm letting the w7hp machine do the dhcp as part of internet connection sharing which mostly works fine. I had to hard set an ip address for the dvr. There's even a registry entry that you can control the dhcp local subnet.

What I'm finding is that with windows 7 home premium even though you can share an internet connection there is no way to change an independent home LAN network to be a "home" location. Because w7hp decides the home LAN is "unidentified" it won't let you change the type and it's stuck as a "public" network. So none of your home computers can talk to the windows 7 computer. They can use the internet but that's about it.

There's a lot of fixes floating around but none seem to correctly fix the problem.

It's not a problem if you have w7pro because you can edit the security settings for unidentified networks and let the admin change them. But I can't even find the security registry entries in w7hp.

Has anyone actually fixed this short of shelling over the money to upgrader to w7pro? Seems to me that w7hp ought ... Read more

A:Windows 7 HP unidentified network is public

Update. This particular powerscript Change does change it to a "work" network. I still can't make any changes to it myself though. This fixes file sharing since a work network will permit this. From what I've read the fix has to be reapplied if the network gets recreated.

Sort of a "partial" solution but not exactly the one I was looking for.

I've got another machine on my network running xp pro and I'm sort of leaning towards making it my "ICS" machine to connect the cell access point to my local home lan. Then perhaps the xp hp box will see that the local lan connection has internet access and give me the option to set it as "home".

Also not my ideal solution as I'm assuming eventually I will have no xp machines and will be back revisiting this.

I don't know much about computers yet, and i'm in a bit of a pickle. I upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 10 with the free upgrade that came out a while back. I recently bought an Ethernet cord to enhance my gaming performance, but when I plug it in it says identifying for a little while then says unidentified network no Internet. My friend came over and tried it on his laptop and it worked for his Windows 8.1 . I have a Comcast router/modem combo and have it hooked to a western digital router which is what the Ethernet cord is run from.

Hello guys.The only reason i'm starting a new topic is that I'am desperate.I basically tried every solution there is out there and nothing works.Here goes.

I installed win 8.1 recently and the problem is,at the title suggest,I got a connection that says Unidentified Network-Limited.I said no problem,I set up a new connection,broadband,I entered the username and password the isp gave me,and the internet works fine.The problem is,under my connection panel,I have 2 connections,one that says Unidentified-Limited,and the one I created and that works.Beside that this is an irritating problem(I could live with that),the bigger problem is that I can no longer download at full speed.I used to download with 10mg,but now,at some torrents it's now up to even 1mg,or if it is,suddendly goes down,and back up,and down again.This is a happy case,I download torrents with 500kb,a torrent which a friends downloads it with 6-8 mg.I just wanna get rid of that limited connection.

Here's how it looks like.I made the non working one private,as in a tutorial from here,but still,won't work.

If anyone can please help,I tried everything,I am desperate.Thank you.

A:Windows 7 Unidentified Network using ethernet

Hi, Welcome to Seven Forums.

This address...
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.56.189(Preferred)

Means you are not getting an address from your router.

As a starting place, check your DHCP range in your router, and that hou have no MAC filters defined to only allow specific MAC addresses. Or specific MAC addresses blocked (such as the wired physical address/MAC address).

Often routers use a default range of 192.168.2.1 to 192.168.2.100 for the DHCP range.

Your wireless picked up 5, so do you have other PCs/Devices using the other addresses?

You could also try a static address just to test.

IP Address: 192.168.2.6
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.2.1
DNS: 192.168.2.1

and see if that works.

Please let us know how that goes..

Ive had this issue with two different model routers, so it`s now leading me to believe that i have an issue with windows 7 somehow.

If i reboot my computer, or turn it on from cold boot, I get the issue (SEE ATTACHED THUMBNAILS)

I can resolve the issue by going into network connections, disabling my

Then re-enabling it again.

this now seems to sync with the router and all is well.

It kept saying that I had an infection from an Autodesk 3ds max program that I downloaded from the official Autodesk website. I restarted and logged in my user name and the virus scanner shows up and tells me that that same program has a different infection than what it told be before. It did not let me open any internet browsers, if I tried, it would say I was infected and need to "Activate for full features".

I went into safe mode and did a system restore that took me back to the 13th of March and it isn't showing up now. Even though it is gone, I don't believe it is fully gone. I just need to know if I am still infected with something(s). I am running on Vista by the way if that helps at all.

I bought an Ethernet cable to plug directly to the modem for better speeds. I plug it in and it doesn't work. It has a Public Network symbol and says "Unidentified Network". When I diagnose it says "Local Area Network 2" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. My NIC is the Intel(R) Ethernet Connection i217-v.

I have tried almost everything. Manually set the IPV4 from the IP config command, disabled IPV6, tested the cable on other PC, checked BIOS to make sure it is enabled, started in safe mode with networking, changed speed and duplex, installed official Intel drivers. It could be the modem but I'm unfamiliar with what settings to tweak. Modem is a Telstra Gateway Max TG799vac.

Cable is plugged in the right place 100%. The modem LED is green and flashing and the PC's top LED is orange and flashing but the bottom is green. I uninstalled the driver in device manager and restarted then reinstalled but still doesn't work. If I login to the modem with the other PC it doesn't appear under the Ethernet connections. I called the ISP for

Sometime after trying to fix it I had the exact same problem with the WiFi and I just enabled the IPV6 and it worked again. It was "Unidentified Network" and had a public network symbol just like the Ethernet is doing.

I keeps spinning and spinning and it says "Unidentified Network" I looked online and there seems to be several causes of this, but I can't find a fix to my particular problem. Here are some of things I've tried so far

1. Power cycle both the router and the cable modem - Didn't fix it.
2. Plug Windows 7 Pro directly into the cable modem (after power cycle) - Didn't fix it.
3. ipconfig /release - Says an address has not been associated with an endpoint

Interesting problem.
1. What I would do first is make sure that your DHCP service is running.
2. Next I would make sure that your ip settings (Start -> Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center -> Change Adapter Settings, then right click the Local Area Connection you are having a problem with, then select Internet Protocol 4 (TCP/IP 4) and click the properties button just below to the right)
3. Make sure that "Obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.
4. Same for DNS just below that.
5. Click OK all the way back to Network Connections and close that window.
6. Open a command prompt window (Start -> then type cmd in the text window and press enter)
7. At the C:/> prompt (or what ever yours shows) type ipconfig /release (then press enter)
8. When that completes type ipconfig /renew (then press enter)
9. Then type ipconfig to see what ip4 address you have (the 169 addresses are automatically loaded if windows does not detect a dhcp source for an ip)
10. Check to see if your ip address is what is expected from your router/modem or local provider. If not what is it?
11. If not, the next step I would take is to try a system restore, going back to the point closed to, but just before you ran your netsh script.
12. Then repeat steps 1 -> 10. If you do have an expected ip addr. after that, try pinging something like google. (at cmd prompt type ping www.google.com)

Hello, I have a desktop computer that I usually connect through ethernet to my home network using a d-link powerline adapter. The other night it just randomly stopped working, and had been working all day previously. I have been looking for a fix for two days now and have achieved nothing. I reset the resetlog.txt using command prompt, I have assured that my adapter is configured to automatically assign an IP address, I have used a restore point to return my computer to a time when the internet was working, and I have also refreshed Windows 10, currently on build 10586.36) and none of this has fixed my issue. I have an external wireless antenna that works fine and I get wifi through it without a problem. As I'm sure you have already guessed, I am not the most technically proficient person but I feel that I have exhausted all available resources to try to fix my problem, so I come here asking for help.

Hello everyone!

First post here and hopefully it will be a good one.

I've had this problem now since Thursday night. I literally tried every solution to fix this problem and nothing has worked. Even tried to call Microsoft, Comcast(My ISP), a local technician and they have no clue how to fix this. I even did a fresh install of Windows 10 to see if this works and my problem still persists.

My WIFI works through my laptop, the Ethernet works on my laptop too, but the Ethernet on my gaming PC just doesn't work. If I type ipconfig /release. It works. But, if I try to renew it, it says its unable to reach the DHCP server. Any help would be appreciated! Just ask if you need more information than what I provided.
