Internet drops out randomly - "The Default gateway is not available"

Q: Internet drops out randomly - "The Default gateway is not available"

I am running Windows 7Ultimate. My Internet connection keeps getting dropped, and when I run the troubleshooter, I can get two different messages: "Troubleshooter Couldn't identify the problem" or "The default gateway is not available." When I get the first, I might as well give up getting on the Internet. When I get the second, the problem can be fixed. Any amount of time later, my connection is dropped again. It can be a day or just an hour

Preferred Solution: Internet drops out randomly - "The Default gateway is not available"

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Internet drops out randomly - "The Default gateway is not available"

Is this computer the only one on the network? I assume your computer is set to DHCP aka getting an IP etc from your router?

Hey all,

For a while now my internet would cut out randomly and to fix it I'd either have to troubleshoot it and wait or I'd have to restart my computer. When I troubleshoot it and it fixes, I get the message that "Default gateway is not available".

It didn't happen as ofter before but now it happens multiple times a day and I have no clue what to do about it or what it could be.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

If you need any other info let me know!

Hey guys,

I've been getting this problem quite a lot recently. My computer would randomly disconnect from the internet. When I go to diagnose it, it would say either "default gateway is not available" or "network adapter is disabled" or "reset the local area connection adapter". I try to fix this with a restart, but more often than not, it would BSOD with a 9F code. After restarting, the networking would work again for some time before repeating the cycle.

Any guesses? Thanks.

Hello! I have a Dell laptop, running Windows 7. Yesterday my cat walked across the keyboard and literally that very moment, my internet lost connection.

It wasn't a case where she disabled the wireless capability by pressing the combination of fn and F2. The wireless is turned on, and is in face connected to the wireless network.

The troubleshooter said that the problem is that "default gateway is not available." Also, when I look at the network's properties, IPv4 Connectivity says "No internet connection."

I did a system restore to the night before and nothing changed.

I also tried resetting the IPv4 by entering "netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log" on the command prompt but this did not fix anything.

This afternoon I turned on the laptop again and for a split second, it said I had internet access but the yellow exclamation point came up quickly and I no longer had it.

I am on my old laptop right now and the connection is just fine, and it's also working for my roommate's computer.

Does anyone know how I might be able to fix this? Many thanks in advance.

A:Settings changed? No IPv4 internet access & "Default Gateway N/A"

Right after I posted this, I turned on the affected laptop. Because I had accidentally left it on earlier, the battery ran out so it ran startup repair. The internet worked for about 10 minutes or so. Now it's out again.

When I log into a VPN through windows, I am no longer able to access the internet. I have tried the solutions posted in this community regarding unchecking the "use default gateway" option. Doing this allows me to have internet
access after I log into the VPN but I am no longer able to access the network shared files. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate. Can someone help me?

A:No internet after VPN connection. Unchecking the "use default gateway" solution does not completely fix my poblem

Hi ,


To access internet and VPN, you can configure the VPN connection to use the default gateway on the remote network. This setting overrides the default gateway settings that you specify in your Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) settings.


To resolve the issue, you need to make the following configurations.


Step 1: You need to contact your administrator of the VPN Server to configure the Server that is running routing and remote access to use a static IP address pool.

Step 2: Disable Use default gateway on remote network setting in the VPN connection item on the client computer.


1.go to Control Panel (small icons)>network and sharing center>Change adapter settings which is in the left panel.
2.Right-click the VPN connection that you want to change, and then click
Properties.
3.Click the
Networking tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the Components checked are used by this connection list, and then click
Properties.
4.Click
Advanced, and then click to clear the Use default gateway on remote network check box.
5.Click OK, click OK, and then click OK.


Step 3: Connect to the Server That Is Running Routing and Remote Access

Step 4: Add a static route on the client use route print command.

Hello, I've been lurking for some time now but just made an account to get some help with an issue I've been having.

Some basic info before I start typing
I'm using a wired connection through At&t Uverse, no idea what the router model is, run though ethernet cable through and through. No Anti-Virus software, although I did use Malwarebytes and AlYac in sync for a while, before uninstalling them part-way though the problem.

That's my ipconfig /all settings, the skype icon with the resetting symbol is how I know my internet has stopped working at the time

Soon afterwards, I'll right click my Local Area Connections under Network Connection in my control panel and click Diagnose, and this is what ends up happening. And thus my connection is fixed for a period of time.

The time it works seems to be fairly random, from instant disconnects to up to 2 hours of working time, but I've noticed that it seems to happen most often when I'm gaming online, playing Path of Exile or League of Legends. Most of the time, I'll also be skyping with someone on video chat, so that could have an impact on the situation.

This has been happening intermittently before as well, the rig itself is a 2 year old custom rig, AMD FX 8350 cpu, AMD Radeon 7870, and MSI 970A-G46 Motherboard. The earliest occurrence was about a year ago, the same issue sprung up for a week and never came back. This time around it's been doing so for about 2 weeks and nothing I've done seems to have fixed the issue.

How to Create a VPN Server on Your Windows Computer Without Installing Any Software

I followed the instructions and I was able to "connect" to the VPN server from my windows 10 computer; however, I had no internet connection on the VPN. I've spent hours searching on google and have followed the following suggestions:

uncheck "use default gateway on remote network" on the client computer.


check "Respond to Ping on Internet Port" on my router.

Unchecking ipv6 under the networking components tab for both the client and server.

Specifying ip addresses for ipv4 on the server.


None of these have worked. I could really use some help here. Please let me know what information you need to better figure my problem out.

Thank you.

Hi there, I have a VPN set up on my laptop purely for privacy purposes, the problem here is that the VPN can often be quite slow.

It's my understanding that unticking the option: Use Default Gateway on a remote network, would allow my traffic to tunnel through my current internet connection rather than through my VPN's endpoint. I hope this makes sense so far. My question is, if I'm routing through my current internet connection is this still secure? It strikes me as though it wouldn't be, since I'm using my current internet connection tunnel as opposed to going to a remote network, and then out at the endpoint.

Would appreciate any help

Thanks very much.

Miles

A:Is "use default gateway on remote network" (vpn) still secure?

The VPN is going to create a secure tunnel between you and your provider, and your exit point will appear to come from them for whatever you are doing. If you uncheck that box your traffic is not being forced over the VPN. So leave the box checked if your goal is to achieve privacy through this VPN.

With this setup, there will be periods of time in which my internet will disconnect, but all the lights on both devices will stay lit. When I disconnect my Desktop from my router and plug it directly into my modem, and this issue appears, when I run the Network Troubleshooting on Windows 7 it tells me "The default gateway is not available."

This issue has been driving me crazy for the past few weeks now. I've placed multiple calls to my ISP and had several tech visits, all to no avail. I've also tried searching the internet for fixes, of which none worked. I have tried:

-Manually setting default gateway in command prompt
-Unplugging my modem and plugging it back in
-Setting a static IP
-Turning off all TCP/UDP offload settings on my NIC
-Updating my NIC's drivers
-Removing and reinstalling my NIC's drivers
-Installing a NEW NIC, to no avail
-Replacing the modem
-Replacing the ethernet and coax cables
-Turning off IPv6

Is this an ISP provided router, or your own??? If it is your router, try updating the firmware first... I didnt see that in the list of what you tried. If it is an ISP provided router... DEMAND A NEW ONE!

My internet connection worked fine at my house to begin with, but now I can't seem to make the internet connection last. Sometimes it lasts for up to around 20 minutes, but sometimes a matter of 5 seconds before dropping out again. Each time it drops, I troubleshoot and without fail it says "Default gateway is not available", but says it's fixed, and the internet works fine until it proceeds to drop out again. Sometimes it has ALSO come up with "DNS server is not responding", but that never says it's been fixed, only detected, and also "Problem with wireless adapter or access point", which does say is fixed.

Thank you.

A:Windows 8.1 Wifi: "Default gateway not available"

Have you tried installing the new Windows 8.1 drivers for the Intel N-135 directly from the Intel site.

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...Wireless-N+135

If this driver doesn't work then let me know which router you are using and post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all and I will have a look at it.

Hi there, I am having connection issues with my laptop involving my wireless adapter (I assume), since I am able to connect to the internet via a different laptop, Xbox and phones in the household. It is a Dell M5010 and the problem has only recently occurred. Any help in resolving this, or rectifying the problem would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Starting a few days ago, whenever I'm on my laptop the internet connection would just die out on me. This down time could last for just a few minutes to many hours. My mom's laptop, however, doesn't seem to be having this problem (she doesn't use her's nearly as much as I use mine, though). I ran the troubleshooter and got the titular quote. I googled this and got quite a few results but every fix seems to be tailored to the individual. So i registered here to request some help of my own. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I run Windows 7 64 bit system and my laptop after connecting to the internet for quite sometime recently stopped being able to. Ever since then I've had the hardest time trying to fix it. I've tried everything i can think of, I've scoured forums and tried everything I found but still no luck. My connection is wireless and when i go into the command prompt i can't figure out what is wrong. I have even tried connecting to other internet connections with the same result "Unidentified Network". I'm fairly new with computers seeing this is the first time i've tried to fix this problem myself, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Dear everyone who reads this post,

I have just recently bought a new sony laptop with windows 8 installed on it. Unfortunately, I am having problems with the wireless connection. I have tried the following actions, none of which worked:

- unplugged/replugged router
- checked for updates of wireless driver; windows says I have the most up to date version
- unchecked "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" in the power management tab
- released and renewed my DCHP lease
- uninstalled free 30 day antivirus trial and installed avast! anti-virus
- reset WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP and IPv6 TCP/IP stacks:: "netsh winsock reset catalog" // reset WINSOCK stack: "netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log" // reset IPv4 stack: "netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log" // reset IPv6 stack
I have ran Network Diagnostics, and as it turns out, it resets the Wi-Fi adapter and tells me that the problem was that "The default gateway is not available". Nevertheless, my connection only works for ~0.17-5 minutes, then there is no more activity. Also, when I am connected for this brief time, the speed is relatively slow, such as the download speed.

Also, I have connected to a different Wi-Fi LAN (my school's) and the wireless worked like a charm. The wireless security type at the school was no authentication and it did not have an encryption type, unlike the LAN at home.

There are 3 other computers that use wireless on my home LAN, all of w... Read more

Set your router SSID and passphrase and security to WPA2-Personal and AES. Now go into the IPV4 properties of the laptop adapter and enter the router address in the advanced button under Default Gateway.

I'm sitting around 6-15 feet away from my wireless router, and I keep losing wifi. I end up having to right click on the wifi icon in the bottom right corner and click Troubleshoot Problems. The problem which is found and fixed is "The default gateway is not available." During the troubleshooting, Intel My Wifi Technology gets disabled and then re-enabled, and things usually start to work again. Sometimes I have to unplug the router to re-cycle it to fix the problem.

When this happens is inconsistent - sometimes when I'm actively working, other times when I return from being away from my machine.

What caused the default gateway to become unavailable?
What can I do/change to prevent this from occurring?

I have included the tech support guy system info, other system details, ipconfig /all when working and when not working, ping tests, and xirrus screenshot (attached) per http://forums.techguy.org/networking/1068918-solved-default-gateway-not-available.html. I tried updating the driver for Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205, but windows determined driver software for this device is up to date.

Hello,
I've purchased a new desktop computer and every time that I go to run multiple programs at one my internet crashes. So I troubleshoot and it resets the Connection for me and the message pops up "Default Gateway is not available: Fixed", after this my internet is back up until I go to run multiple programs again and I keep needing to repeat this progress. It's really annoying and stops me from Skyping with people, Playing games, watching videos and downloading files.
I know some of you will probably re-direct me to some other posts that people with the same problem started and try to find a solution there.. but trust me - I did and nothing seems to be working.
It's not my router because I unplugged my router completely and hooked up my modem directly to my PC and I still had the problem.
I contacted my ISP and there's nothing they could do over the phone.
I did a clean boot, no effect.
I turned off my Anti-virus, firewall, everything to see if it would change, no effect.
I went to CMD did ipconfig /renew and all that, no effect.
I went to IPv4 on my connection and manually typed in The IP, Subnet mask, and default gateway, no effect.
I reset my modem and router multiple times, no effect.
I updated my motherboard drives (Intel Desktop boards) and Graphics card Drivers (Asus Geforce GT430), no effect.

A:"Default Gateway is not available", Nothing seems to be helping.

well,

in problems like this you will have to grab a laptop from a friend and check if the problem still occurs.

IF YES THEN change your ISP modem.

IF NOT THEN
A) change your computer network card OR maybe find older drivers.
B) maybe it is a window issue, like we had a virus once that did similar problem,
try running combofix. ComboFix Download
C) if all false maybe move to windows 7 64bit - as drivers are completely different.
End If.

Good luck

I keep running into this issue with windows 7 and its quite irksome. several times a day, my internet would cut out and id get an error the default gateway is not available, then windows fixes it. my laptop is wireless also, with win7, but i never get that problem.

I tried updating the driver to my network card, but when i did that, my Xbox 360 would no longer connect to my PC for streaming. so i rolled back.

Hello, I am new to these forums and have been having this persistent issue. Sorry if this is in the wrong section or if I need to do something else for everyone to help me with this issue.

My laptop is an HP m6-1045dx, which I have had for almost a year. I have had no connectivity problems while connected to the internet through wifi (including my current connection at home) until a few days ago.

Randomly, (it could be after being connected for a few minutes or a few hours), I will receive the limited access error (hazard system next to the wifi bars in the system tray). After troubleshooting, windows will disable and attempt to re-enable my network adapter, resulting in my network adapter not working properly. If I attempt to manually enable the network adapter, my computer will keep loading with nothing happening. Troubleshooting again results in the computer telling me "the default gateway is not available."

When I attempt to shut down or restart my computer, my computer will struggle to do so for about 10-15 minutes until the BSOD results saying "Driver State Power Failure." After being forced to manually turn off my computer and restarting, my computer will turn on still not connected to the internet. Troubleshooting results in Windows recommending a plug in an Ethernet cable. I click "skip this step" and then it notifies me that my network adapter is not enabled, and after completing that, my internet connection is fine, for a lim... Read more

I've run into problems no matter what VPN (Private Internet Access, NordVPN, and AirVPN). Whenever I connect and either open my P2P client or upload enough data (not sure if it's only one or both) I disconnect. I can fix it by disconnecting and reconnecting
my wireless adapter, but I would rather not do this every hour or so.
Other details:

The adapter is a linksys AE6000 (updated a couple days ago).I can upload forever without the VPNs connected (or maybe I didn't try for long enough).I've been emailing NordVPN for several days with no real help.

Hey.

I've been getting this problem quite a lot recently.My computer will randomly disconnect from the internet When I go to diagnose it, it would say either "default gateway is not available" or "local network connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration" Sometimes when i try to disable and enable the internet my pc just freezes and i have to restart the pc.I think this is random because sometimes i browse the internet for about 10-20 minutes with no problem then the internet disconnects and shows the yellow triangle

I tried all the solutions i found online but with no effect
*I checked online to see if my internet driver is up to date and it is
*I disabled ipv6 and ipv4 but with no effect
*I scanned the pc with Eset nod32 antivirus
*I installed ccleaner and scanned all the registry
*Disabling bonjour but i didn't find him
*netsh winsock reset catalog
*netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
*netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
*ipconfig /flushdns
*ipconfig /release
*ipconfig /renew
*ipconfig /registerdns
*Restarted the router
I have a dynamic ip
I did the a speedtest and i have: ping 2 ms ; Download speed 86.51 Mbps ; Upload speed 71.31 Mbps
I tried to move the internet cable into another socket in the router but with no effect
Sorry for my bad english

A:Always disconnecting "default gateway is not available" please help

First - make sure IPv4 is always enabled! Under its options, make sure that it's set to automatically configure the IP; in other words, uncheck the "manually configure IP address" box.

Second - run ipconfig /all in your Command Prompt, copy and paste the results here.

Hello,

I have my desktop pc configured with a static ip of 192.168.1.50 / 255.255.255.0
my gateway is 192.168.1.1. this is my 3com ethernet card tcp/ip properties.

However i just noticed in the "internet connection" window, i notice one connection called
the "Internet Gateway" connection. the thing that concerns me about this connection is, that it is constantly sending and receiving packets. im up to 2 billion + packets received so far. I selected the "show icon in notification area" and its constantly sending and receiving packets (literally non-stop both sending and receiving, no matter what). However, my LAN connection is not... (i typically see the send and recieve lights for this one only light up as i load a new web page etc)

I have "show icon in notification area" selected for both connections.

I have no wireless card on my desktop and only one nic.

Can anyone help to explain, if i disable this connection, it restarts by itself after 30 seconds or so, and why its constantly sending and receiving packets.

these two connections are:
name:internet connection / type:internet gateway / status:connected,firewalled / firewalled / device name: internet connection

name:HomeNet / type:LAN High speed internet / status:connected,firewalled / firewalled / device name: 3Com EtherLink 10/100
 

A:Solved: Windows xp "internet connection" type: internet gateway(packet storm) req. assistance

In your network connections window "local area connection" is for your local network, meaning the physical device in your computer that processes the data from the Ethernet cord that is plugged into. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the internet, though it is the device you probably have your Ethernet cable from your router or modem plugged into. "internet gateway" is an icon showing that your computer is directly connected to the internet (or connected to it through a router) and represents your computers connection to the internet. both icons are normal, if you unplug your computers Ethernet cord the 3com will switch to "network cable unplugged" and the internet gateway will disappear. the 3com local area connection icon doesn't disappear because the device is still physically installed in the computer. But once the internet is gone, the internet gateway fades out or disappears completely, because it only represents the computers "internet connection." Even when you are not actively browsing websites, the computer is still connected to the internet, and thats why it constantly sends and receives packets. if its sending and receiving way too many packets, thats kind of a different issue. but those packets are indeed data sent and received from your computer to the internet and back. I hope this helps.

your description really makes it hard to tell if the amount of packets sent and received is excessive, becaus... Read more

A:" default gateway is not available"

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.

if you are connected by wireless, please include the xirrus screen shots for both conditions - see how below.
What 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 Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot 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 computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Hello,

I have been having a problem the last several days with my wireless internet connection on my Windows 7 desktop PC. I keep intermittently losing my wireless connection, then I have to troubleshoot to reconnect to the internet. The odd thing about this is that my connection only drops when I am using a larger amount of "network data" I guess you can call it. For example, I can have my browser open and browse the web, but as soon and I open several browsers tabs or I open my Diablo III/Titanfall game (which are online games that use a lot of resources if your unfamiliar), a few min later my connection drops and I have to troubleshoot again to reconnect. When I troubleshoot I it says "The default gateway is not available - Fixed". My wireless single connection is always excellent but I still drop. I have two other computers and they are both working perfectly and don't drop connection at all.

I have tried everything and cannot fix this: I updated all my drivers, network adapters, etc. I even went to the manufacturers website to make sure I have the latest versions. I've tried disabling, uninstalling, and re-installing adapters/drivers. I tried to system restore my system to and earlier date but unfortunately I had no restore points AT ALL for some reason. I had my ISP change my server channel (twice) which didn't work and eventually they sent me a brand new router. I set up the new router and I am still having the same problem. I tried the whole ipco... Read more

A:"The default gateway is not available"

The problem here isn't with Windows. It's those ISP issued modem/router POS they seem to think will work with every NIC but the problem is,...they aren't compatible with many different wireless NIC's. That is why it appears to work fine with some NIC's and aren't stable with others.

If you want to end the problems go with a stand alone modem, not a combo unit, and use a regular name brand router with it's firmware updated.

Hello and welcome the weasels mate this is quite an old machine I take it? - have you checked the drivers for the wireless?
Go into the Device Manager and open it up and check the Network adapters as in the pic any yellow triangles means it is not working properly.

Let us know what the device is because getting the driver for it is better done via the manufacturer.

Hello all,

I recently got a new laptop and I've been having trouble with connecting to the internet. Several times a day, internet pages will stop loading and Windows diagnostics will come up with the message "The default gateway is not available". This is fixed by resetting the Wifi adapter. I've contacted my ISP and they say that there's nothing wrong with my connection so I'm guessing it's either something wrong with my laptop or the router. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks.

A:"The default gateway is not available"

Welcome to the forums ad157t. Next time it does that, instead of resetting the adapter just run a command prompt and ping your gateway. Then ping 8.8.8.8 Sounds strange but sometimes it has a wakeup effect.
