Default gateway dissapeared, internet explorer shows "page can not be displayed"

Q: Default gateway dissapeared, internet explorer shows "page can not be displayed"

Hi Guys,

I let my mate borrow my server yesterday, and I got the internet up and running for him fine, He's installed a few programs since then. They include:

Adobe Photoshop
MSN Live Messenger

and he left the computer on over night and restarted it this morning, and the default gateway has disspaeared and all he seems to get when going onto internet explorer is a "Page can not be displayed" error message.

I tried having a look at it, going in to Start > run > cmd > ipconfig

and it showed his IP and subnet mask, but the default gateway did not appear.

I couldn't figure out how to get it back.
Can you guys help at all ??

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Default gateway dissapeared, internet explorer shows "page can not be displayed"

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.)

I have never ever seen this happen before and am totally at a loss, i have booted to safe mode and run a full virus scan which ill know the result of in 8 hours when im home from work.
But has anyone seen this before ?

Very Slow dial-up but have tried cellular broadband which works only marginally better. The broadband in fact would be roughly the speed of what dial-up used to be on Windows 95 many years ago, I used to watch short videos then but cannot even do audio clips now unless I download them first. Some web pages and parts of many others will not load at all regardless of reloading many times. Tried Firefox, Opera and several different modems.

Computer -Win 7 64bit 4 core Compaq 4gig ram 3Ghz processor. All updates. Reinstalling Windows on a NEW HD made no difference and as a test I went on line with nothing on the HD not even the (AVG) antivirus, made zero describable difference. I ran a few checks on the computer hardware and everything was OK, have also had the telephone co. check the lines and I even Changed ISP's. Any driver update attempts has always indicated the best driver is already installed.

Two things I would really really really like to know for sure -
(A) Why will a page often fail to load regardless of how much time you give it and then display INSTANTLY after you give up and disconnect?
(B) I read of some setting a while back which was supposed to make a page attempt reload 10 times and tried it but it didn't help one byte. .... So..... is there some utility available that will DISABLE the the error message "This page can't be displayed" (and perhaps a few other assorted excuses) and reload the page AUTOMATICALLY as many times..... and f...

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.

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!

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
3.Click the
Networking tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the Components checked are used by this connection list, and then 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.

More information about the detailed steps, please see

Anyone have any experience of this?

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

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.

Server: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

I'm trying to set up a VPN server at home that I can connect to. I followed the following tutorial to set on up directly on windows:
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.

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.

Does anyone know why "send page by email" is greyed out in Internet Explorer 8?

This add-on is installed and enabled in IE 8, but it still will not work.

I normally use Firefox and even though I read a few bad reviews about it's ?Email the Web? add-on, I went ahead and installed it because there is no alternative now for the newest update for Firefox because the "Send Page by Email" Firefox add-on isn't yet compatible with the newest 3.6.12 Firefox update... it appears that I'll have to install Safari to use the built-in send page by email feature.

Though Internet Explorer 8 comes with a "send page by email" add-on pre-installed, it does not seem work anymore... even though it?s "send page by email" add-on is enabled, the option is still grayed-out and inaccessible under ?file?.

The ?Email the Web? add-on for Firefox installs and has a nice interface button, as well as the file menu choice, but that?s where the good things end and the problems start. The initial interface is a bit cumbersome, then it takes me to a webpage to log-in to a Google account, and if I don?t already have a Google account, I have to jump through all the hoops to create one, then I must be logged in to that anytime I want to send a webpage by email, then instead of working with my default email app, I need to enter email addresses manually unless I have a gmail account to import addresses from... then after the 10 minutes that it takes to get thr...

Somehow the page that I get after clicking Internet Explorer from my desktop has changed- and I can't change it to something else.

My original start page was http://www.att.net, but now it tries to open http://www.worldnet.att.net (which is a non-existent/invalid web page address- although it should be noted that the word "worldnet" IS used in their email address, which I have).

I have tried to change it using the process of- Tools/Internet Options/(desired page address)/Apply/OK - but without success.

When I try this process, it appears to take my new page, but when I check to verify the new start page (by Tools/Options again or by simply launching IE from my desktop), the old/bad address reappears/is still there.

The "start page" problem began after installing software for DSL service (Bell South Fast Access). I had previously used AT&T Worldnet Dial Up.

My computer experience is at a beginner level, but I know that messing with the registry can cause major problems or worse...

...but FYI, I did try (with GREAT uneasiness) the following in the Registry:

Information: Dell XPS 410, Win XP Home SP-3, IE 8. I successfully removed the "Security Tool" Malaware program and recovered my display properties, but now every time I boot the machine, a popup titled "Internet Explorer cannot display the web page" appears. It does not appear to be directly related to IE. When I close the screen, everything functions properly. Internet Explorer works smothly without a hitch.

I have run HJT, Malawarebytes, AD-Aware, AVG, and Housecall. Managed to find registry keys and remove them as well as program files related to the malaware. Altering msconfig didn't help, so I'm assuming there is a well-hidden .dll file somewhere.

Short of wiping and reloading the machine, I'm at my wits' end here. I actually tried to do a repair overlay, but the machine blue-screens at a certain point. I suspect this is due to the raid controller.

Suggestions are welcome.

I had a virus on my system and removed it, While walking through fix with service provider they had me uninstall AVG anti virus so I lost name of virus. Have installed new Anti virus and have run the following utilities. Malwarebytes - found 4 errors and fixed. SpyBot - found 1 item. Addaware - found 1 item and removed.

Issue is I can not load IE explorer under Main User name or Firefox ( error on firefox is Proxy server error). IE continually gives me page display error. It will allow me to load any page that requires username and password but will not load them once you enter data. I have cleared Temp Int files and reset to default on all security settings. Have also tried shutting off firewall and antivirus and tried loading several times. Also I have tried Microsoft methods to repair and it still will not work. I have upgraded from IE 6 to 7 hoping that would help, but did same thing.

The weird part is if I switch to my backup user whether its Admin or not it allows me to use IE and Firefox under other user. I was having an issue accessing any website with username and password but have somehow fixed that by doing several resets.

I've been having a problem for several months with my browser(s) and hoping someone here might be able to help.

I use both Internet Explorer and Firefox, so I've decided this isn't a browser problem. About half the time I click on links-- either from inside the browser, whether I am opening in a new window or not, from an e-mail program or chat program-- I get the "Page cannot be displayed" error. However, when I click Refresh, the page will suddenly load just fine. Usually I have to click Refresh more than once, sometimes five or six times before the page actually loads. I have no idea why it's happening and I can't seem to narrow the possibilities.

Does anyone know why this would be happening?

I'm using Windows XP, if that's of any relevance.

I apologize if anyone has already asked these questions, I'm having such issues with the internet right now I can't check to see if they have been asked. Plus everytime I come here I can't seem to find out how to just log in and post my question.
I'm running Windows XP with the newest version of IE. I have a dial-up connection, and while I am aware of just how slow this is, something has to be wrong otherwise. It hangs everywhere I go - no matter what site I visit I wait and wait and wait for it to connect. The little flag in the corner barely flaps. Most of the time I get "The Page Cannot be Displayed" - so I then refresh only to get half the page with some of the buttons not filled in, or it just boots me off the internet altogether. I've called my ISP who says they've done everything on their end they can and that the problem must be my computer. My call manager (the program that shows me who's calling) won't work, once it's connected it gives me a pop error about a socket connection error and this pop up comes up continuously - once I click ok, it comes back up over and over and over.. so much that I have to disable it.
I'm at the end of my rope for how to fix these issues. It's slower than slow. As a matter of fact I've spent the last 90 minutes trying to get to the Tech Support site and had to type this in notepad first because I was getting frustrated waiting and waiting for the site to come up.

Hey There,

Was just hoping someone knows wtf is going on here-

Some .chm files, when I try to read them with the default winXP .chm viewer, display the standard Internet Explorer "The page cannot be displayed" error page in the viewing pane. The table of contents is visible, however, just not the page data.

Now, if I copy the same .chm file to my desktop, it opens fine!

This only happens with some of my .chm files, although it is always the same ones- and they always work when I copy them to the desktop, just not when they are in the folders I keep them in.

The data is there, it just can't be accessed for some reason (if I use a .chm 'decoder' to decode the .chm files to .htm format, they work fine; however I don't want to have to mess with a hundred different .htm files just to read a book)

BTW, I have tried changing the filenames with no avail.

If anyone has solved this problem or has any suggestions I would be greatly appreciative.

Hi, everyone. Just found this website, and it looks like it will hopefully be helpful. Here's my problem:

I am unable to access a specific website: www.edline.net. I receive an error message stating that this page cannot be displaye (as if the site doesn't exist). However, on other computers, the page appears fine.

I have Norton Internet Security installed w/parental controls (haven't gotten a chance to try turning them off; don't know if this could be the problem). I'm thinking that maybe the oversensative parental controls are blocking the site, but can anyone think of what else could be causing this problem?

I only get the message when I go to www.edline.com. Other websites work fine.

Thanks for your help, everyone!

I've been having malware issues lately, and have performed numerous scans with different programs:

MalwareBytes (removed several threats)
Avira Antivir (found nothing)
Ad-aware (bad cookies)
Safety.live.com - found items but couldn't fix it

The popups (more like new tabs, as I had the popup blocker enabled) have stopped, and it seems to be running better, but the weird thing is I can't access Windows Updates. It just says "This page cannot be displayed".

Also, the yellow shield in the system tray shows up when you first boot up, but then it goes away, as if a program/registry entry has not loaded yet when that icon first loads, but then kicks it out when it does load up.

We did some searches, and found that we should just run HiJackThis and post the log for you smart guys to analyze.

So, here it is.

My Issue: for some reason IE is not allowing me to sign in to pages that require a username or password. Pages that start with HTTPS also do not display. The following error message is displayed. "This page cannot be displayed." I've tried so many things I'm about to give up! Below are some detials about my laptop and some of the steps I've taken to mitigate this problem. Someone please help!!

Specs: Laptop Manu. Toshiba, Satellite series
XP Home Edition, SP 2, IE6.

I've tried the following:

Make sure I have an internet connection by pinging the DNS server
followed most of the tips found here http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=303807
Install another browser Mozilla Firefox...this also displays page not available message.
I've also updated my Internet Options to Default, I am not going thru a Proxy server, SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 are selected
completed a system restore to an earler moment in time...did not work

I've even did a system scan to detect if some of the files were corrupt everything seems fine. The only optin I haven't tried is reinstalling XP. If anyone could provdie any advice before i take this step I would greatly appreciate it!

Hey everyone,

I have had this problem for about a week now, and I have tried everything I know of to figure out what it is, with no luck. Hopefully someone has seen a problem like this before and can help.

I am running XP, SP2. I will browse the net, and after about an hour after start-up, I will get the "Page cannot be displayed" error on all pages I visit. I had Norton installed, took it off. I had IE7 installed, reverted to IE6, no help. I reset my Winsock through the CMD box, nothing. I ran the Network diagnostic, and it said I have a Winsock catalog error, but resetting it does nothing. ALl this time, I am still connected to the internet, because downloads, uploads and whatnot continue.

I tried running the WInsock fix program, nothing. Once I restart, I am fine for an hour or so, then it happens again. I can't make an HTTP, HTTPS, or FTP connection. No firewall installed, other than WIndows Firewall. I have a DSL connection. I have cycled the Modem. I am at a loss. ANyone?

Getting the cannot display DNS error message at any website I try to get to. It appears that my connection is open because I use a router and my laptop works fine. Other programs (p2p stuff, virus updater, etc) that require net access also will not work. Not sure if this is an issue that can be helped with HijackThis, but the problem seemed to start happening after I used Ad-Aware for the first time in a long time, so I'm thinking spyware may be involved. If not any advice as to what the prob may be would be great, thanks in advance for any help! System specs are
