Machines on Domain showing IDENTIFYING... internet access

Q: Machines on Domain showing IDENTIFYING... internet access

We have been facing a weird issue on a domain environment where some of the connected pcs are showing IDENTIFYING... internet access.
All services are working properly, but we feel some slowness in the network and we are suspecting some machine is broadcasting and causing network devices to feel lost.

We have found also a single machine having a mac of 00:00:00:00 but we are unable to locate it so could this machine have something to do with such behavior and where should we really start from.

Preferred Solution: Machines on Domain showing IDENTIFYING... internet access

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.)


Recently I've had a new ethernet connection installed for my desktop, which previously worked with Wi-Fi.

The connection works for a few hours, and all of a sudden stop and enter a loop which looks like this:

Circle - 'identifying'
Red X - 'no internet access'

Reconnecting the LAN cable or restarting the router doesn't work, only a restart to the computer fixes the problem temporarily.

Where do you think the problem lies? The new cables or maybe the windows network adapter drivers or computer hardware??
I'd love to hear your opinions.

Thank you!!

Hi I just upgraded my internet today. Installed a new modem and dual band router. Now my laptop isn't connecting properly to the wireless.

I set up my router through a hard connect, which is what I'm using now. After turning my wireless adapter back on to test out the speed of the 5ghz band my network icon in the bottom right of my screen will have a yellow exclamation point on it and it says "No internet access". I opened chrome on a whim and was actually getting service so I ran a speed test and was seeing a significant speed drop.

I upgraded to 50 Mbps. My wired connection was giving me about a 50 Mbps download and the wireless (with "no internet access") was giving me about 35.

I tried setting up a static IP in the ipv4 settings and was having the same problem. Lo and behold when I changed my settings back to auto detect, the "No internet access" went away! I ran a speed test on my wireless and was getting about 52 Mbps download. I played BF4 for a good two hours then turned my laptop off and ran some errands.
Once I returned home I turned my laptop back on and now the "No internet access" is back. Speed test is giving me about 35 Mbps download again.

I have an old laptop running windows 7 and I remember having the same problems trying to connect it to the internet but that was years ago and I can't remember.

Any ideas what my problem could be or how to fix it? Any help would be appreciated

Thank you

I have an Asus laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate. Last week, I had been living in a place, where I had Time-Warner Cable (TWC) Internet, and everything worked just fine, not only on that network but on others, as well. This week, I moved to a new place, and I had my service transferred over. I am using the same modem/router (Technicolor TC8715D) that was in the old place, and TWC simply transferred the service over by sending a technician out to hook it up. The service works, as I can access it both from my cell phone and tablet (both Droid-based), and the technician was able to access it from his iPad. However, my laptop connects, but it is unable to get Internet access.

At first, I was given a proper DHCP address, but subsequent efforts achieved only a 169.x.x.x address. I have tried both restoring the factory defaults on the modem and changing the default name/password, but neither of these efforts produced the desired result. I've removed the network profile from both the Network and Sharing Center, as well as the registry. I've tried releasing the IP address, flushing the DNS, assigning a static IP, and rebuilding/repairing the network stack. None of this has helped.

There was a previous DSL Internet connection in this new home available from Verizon, and I've been using this on my laptop, so I'm perfectly capable of connecting to other wireless networks. I would try a wired connection, but there's a driver issue w/ my ethernet port.

A:Identifying...([network name]) No Internet Access

A broadband internet wireless router is a crucial component of any home network system. If you're already using a high-speed connection to network you'll easily get access to this unique address. Wireless routers using the IP address can function adequately as their distinctive components will be paired.

You might not need to install a DHCP client and multiple switches and hubs when you use a wireless router because it is capable of handling all the required info as a singular unit. If necessary, this unique IP may be modified by the router operator. It is a basic task. You just have to start your browser and write the Internet protocol address on the Address bar.

Just one single unit in the network system is able to use this IP. If an additional device is put to use it's going to result in computer network malfunction. You have to restrict ability to access this specific account from other people by creating a password and implementing any other required reconfigurations.

I have had this issue for 3 days now, and have searched numerous forums and tried many solutions, but nothing has helped.

On my laptop, whether using a wired or wireless connection, my computer will not access the internet. It seems to access the router/modem (Local Only), but will forever say that it is "Identifying...."

I have tried various regedits, safemode (result is the same), turn off IPv6, among other things. I don't know a lot about computers, but know enough to follow these directions when I read them.

If there are any other suggestions out there I would be forever grateful, as this has been unbelievably frustrating.

Thanks in advance.

My laptop is running on windows 7 64 bit and my wireless adapter is intel Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 130. The problem is it never connects to wifi, its recognizing the signal but the adapter is stuck on identifying/acquiring network. I noticed the problem about a month ago and i have searched everywhere and tried almost everything. I have my computer for over a year hence i may not know if what i did (installed some softwares/changed settings) to have this problem. I did a system restore but for some reason some restore point are not there, im pertaining to the restore point i made they day i bought my computer. I tried restoring using the oldest one which is like a week ago, the problem was fixed for few days only so i did the restore again and made sure i will not install/uninstall any software or changed any settings, but it the same problem occurs.

These are my theories of what i think might be causing the problem

1. I installed and reinstalled the driver but it still didnt work, i assume if i downloaded the wrong driver so i search again looking for a different one but it only leads me to the same link and file.
2. Im not much of an techy person but i assume our network administrator has purposely blocked my computer for some reason (if thats possible), so i used my phone as a hotspot and connect to its wifi but still the same problem.

Hello everyone,

Let me start with the hardware:

1. my machine is a Getac B300 with a Windows XP Professional 32-bit/Windows 7 Professional 64-bit dual boot.
2. My wife's machine is a Toshiba U500 with Windows 7 Professioanl 64-bit.

Normally, I use the U500 as a hub: I connect it to the internet using a 3G-enabled Sony Ericsson Elm that I control through Sony Ericsson PC Suite 6.011.00* (I have an unlimited connectivity plan.) As soon as the U500 is connected, I set up a WEP-encrypted ad hoc network and connect my B300 (regardless of which system I happen to be booted into) and my wife's iPhone.**

I can do the same if I choose to boot into Windows 7 on my B300 and use that as the hub.

My question however, is as to why I can't get this whole setup to work out with Windows XP. I normally use the exact same way to connect to the internet (Elm and SE PC Suite), and I've attempted to set up an ad hoc network when I'm booted into Windows XP (through Windows and through Intel Proset), and I even managed to get the U500 and my wife's iPhone to connect to the network, but neither machine would get any internet access, even though I made sure to turn on Internet Connection Sharing for the connection.

So I'm beginning to wonder if it's even possible to get it to work with XP (as opposed to 7) being the hub.

*Sorry, but Sony Ericsson PC Companion sucks.

Well, this seems like a case of malware, but given that it has struck both vista machines at the same time, I am starting the thread in the Vista forum.

This morning, I got up and discovered that both of the Vista machines in our 4 machine network, are un-able to access the internet via browser. Strangely, they can access each other, share files, and I can even ping out to google from a command line, but that is as far as it goes. I get a connection error in both IE and Firefox. I can access the internet without issue on my XP laptop which I am presently typing on. It seems odd that whatever is at play affected both machines at the same time, which is why I tend to think malware, but who knows..

When I diagnose Connection problems in IE it tells me that windows did not detect any problems with this computers network connection.

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.
I am recording DNS Client Errors (ID 1014) on all of the PCs during the intervals when their NICs are identifying which network to join.

-On the PCs that are catching the domain network I am only getting a single error about the root domain, eg the domain is ad.domain.com and I am only getting errors about how the configured DNS servers cannot resolve domain.com (nothing with fully qualified

I cannot for the life of me figure this one out.. The server on the network does not control the internet - all clients run to a switch which runs to a T1.

I am having problems accessing secure sites. Doesn't matter which client machine I use, here is the problem..

When I login to a particular site, it seems like it accepts my login. Then once I advance from the login screen I have other links I can click on to continue. When I click a link, I am taken back to that same login screen. If I try this 5 times or so, I may be able to navigate to where I need to go.

What is the issue? If I try to login from anywhere else, I have no problems..

I have tried Firefox and Explorer and both have the same issues. I have added the site to a trusted site, and all security levels are correct.

Any ideas (PLEASE HELP)?

UPDATE (yeah that was fast) -

It seems as though it is not just secure sites!!! For instance on this site when I tried to edit the post I just made, it said that I am not logged in to do that. The problem lies in that the machine is not remembering that I am logged in. Cookies?? What is going on?>

The freelancer will be using the clients machine which is connected to thier network.

The client wants to create a local account for the user and does not want the user to have access to any domain resources, with the exception of two printers. In addition, he should be able to access the Internet.

I can't remove the machine from the domain as other users will be using the machine as well who need access to the domain.

Hi Everyone
I am new to networking. We have a Win 2003 Server, single NIC,running a database,with 10 workstations joined under a domain. All are connected by a switch. Our internet router died and I bought a Netgear 300 that accesses the net thru a ubee modem. The Netgear is ethernet connected to the switch also. Server has DCHP disabled and router is DCHP enabled.
Problem: I can connect any of the workstations to the net with an automatic TCP/IP setting, and they will still be able to use the database. I can connect the server the same way, but if I do so, the workstations cant access the Database on the LAN anymore. If I return the NIC tcp/ip to static add for the server, it works but cant see the internet.

I know most servers have two NIC's and that it's fairly simple to set one up for the internet, one for the LAN.

Can anyone direct me to an article/answer that will educate me re: this dilemma? Have searched all over net, with lots of info but none specifically addressing this question.

A:Cannot access some internet websites while computer is in the domain

Are you managing the Internet connection with the server? If so, that's probably the difference. Another thing might be group policies established by the server.

What happens if you try to ping a non-working site from a domain connected machine? Don't use microsoft.com, they don't respond to pings.

Now we started to shift from XP to WIN7 (using a new machine) but
# we can easily logon to the domain
# we can see/ping all local machines/servers including our Fortigate firewall
# and it takes us hours to get access to the outside world on the WIN7 machine
# once we suceeded, there are "losses" many many times which causes big problems handlings mails (outlook/kerio) or web page access (Firefox,IE)

Hi there! My compaq laptop has mysteriously change settings or something (read: one of my children probably screwed with something). I have a wireless router and modem (iPad, phones, etc. are all connecting just fine). It tells me I am currently connected to my wireless network connection, but then underneath it says "identifying" and no internet access. Also (I don't know if this is related really, or just another thing my kids have switched up on me)...my start button and taskbar are now the oldschoolish style.

Be warned, too, that I am no computer genius, and this is also a new-to-me laptop. So while I'll post any reports or anything needed, I'll have to have instructions on how to do most of them or find the info y'all need. Be gentle, okay?

(Last thing...I have class tonight from 6-750, so if I don't answer, I will, I promise!)

What is wuauclt.exe and how is it used?
I know that people mainly use this for their Windows Update Server (WSUS), but I recently came across something that helped make the tasks of my co-worker and I a lot easier -
if it worked...
Now, I'll give a bit of a run-down on how our process works:
When we create our images - save states, backups, or what-ever you want to call them - we build them up from scratch which usually leaves us with a lot of updates; however, discovering a - I guess you could call it a - "jury-rigged" batch script
that would check and install updates upon startup (or logging into the computer) made the initial process of waiting for the updates a whole lot more bearable, since we could now leave them unattended.
Q: Well, the wuauclt.exe commands that I use only seem to work with machines that are not bound to a domain - in our case, at least.  While on the domain, you're given the two different options of either "Check

I found a hotfix for those who have XP machines on their networks that don't show up on the W7 Network Map.

What happens is the XP machine will show up at the bottom of the screen and can't be placed on the map correctly. It has to do with a protocol that Microsoft uses called Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD). It looks like it was first used in Vista. However it's not present or broken in XP.

The link below shows how to get a hotfix from MS to resolve the problem. I tried it and it works great. My home server which is an older XP box now shows up in the W7 network map right where it's supposed to.

A:showing no internet access error

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Is this a wired or wireless connection issue?

If this is a wireless issue you may remove all wireless profiles stored in your computer, then try again to reconnect to your own SSID make sure to type in the correct network encryption.
An option is to manually add SSID:

Test your connection after. If that didn't help at all please provide an ipconfig /all output.
Click on the Start Menu search box area type cmd, right click on cmd see at the top, and click on Run as Administrator. From the command prompt (black screen), Copy and Paste these ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt . Please attach the .txt file to be found in your Local Disk 'C' on your next post.

I'm not finding good information regarding best practices on OUTBOUND firewall configuration for Active Domain Controllers. I suppose this wasn't a problem until we installed an
Azure ATP sensor. We have our DC's on prem by the way.

What happened is we got a complaint from another ISP, saying they are seeing our server's IP address sending some kind of packet to machines on their network, and they think our server may malicious or part of
a botnet.

It was very concerning to confirm that yes, in fact our domain controller is making strange connections to external IP addresses on these ports (why would our DC need to connect to port 3389 on anything? And what's it trying to do connecting to port 135 on
an external server? This was quite worrisome at first)

Well after investigating further, I found out the packets (SYN packets) were being sent from a process called "Microsoft.Tri.Sensor.exe" and that led me to this post:


and then this:

So now I understand that it's trying to learn the remote machine name using name resolution through RDP and SMB(?) protocols, but again this is causing our server(s) to connect to EXTERNAL machines on the Internet on these ports, which does look pretty suspicious
to the other side.

Just formatted all drives on my network, and in process of reconfiguring them. Without acutally creating a new network as of yet, (all are running through wireless router) except my main machine which is hardwired, I am showing one of my son's machines. How would that be possible?

Also, am showing pc connectivity on the router and cable modem when ALL machines are shut OFF. Have contacted Linksys, they don't have a clue as to why that would be. It does appear to kill the link when in suspend or hibernation but not when completely shut off.

One more thing, when I got the second machine up and running WIRELESSLY, it was showing as being hardwired in the dhcp client table on the routers settings page. How the heck is that possible? I Deleted that connection and all is showing well now except for the fact of the connectivity issue.

Any Ideas?

i have changed the domain of the computer (from say old.net to new.net).
there is a folder shared on another machine on old.net domain. the user X was able to access it. aftter changing his domain from old.net to new.net he no longer can access that shared folder.
User X has working credentials for both domains.

on accessing it it asks for credentials. upon entering his correct user name in the format (old.net\X) he is not able to access it.

i had exactly same setup with another user Y and he was able to access data .

is there anything that i am missing ?

also accessing that folder first time asked for credentials but now it doesnt asks .. why ? there is nothign in credentials manager.


A:cannot access shared folder after changing domain with old domain cred


Have you removed/re-added the User's credentials (from the PC with shared folder) with the new domain name?
Also, make sure that the shared folder has Everyone permission in the Security Tab.

I'm having a weird problem.
I got a broadband connection few days before and whenever I use that connection to access internet, Chrome alone works. Firefox, IE, Torrent application and all the Windows 8 apps are showing "unable to connect to internet".
I tried a lot of cmds like" dns flush, resetting connection etc" but nothing worked.
I even refreshed the whole OS, but the issue persists.

Can I access a network share on the domain with a non-domain computer? I would connect the computer directly to the corporate network. 
For what reasons could this be blocked (firewall? policy? settings on server-side?) and what configuration is needed to make sure it is possible to access a network share with a non-domain computer?
Thanks already for your help!

I have a domain joined windows 7pro (64bit) not able to connect to shared folder on a non domain joined pc with windows 7pro (32bit). Only public folders are accessible. I get a do not have permission message, I tried adding the domain\user to share permissions but domain is not recognized on the non domain-joined pc.

Does my domain admin have access to the homegroup and the shared folders on the home pc?

What are my options for access to a non public secure folder on the non domain pc from the domain joined pc.

Sorry for the awkward description, don't know how else to describe the situation.

my apologies if these questions were addressed elsewhere, I could not find any relevant threads.


A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

I'm helping an elderly woman with her computer and I haven't used trouble shooting skills for eight years. She uses MSN (DSL) and was downloading Norton Anti-virus/security 2006 and it crashed in the middle of the download. It was unable to uninstall 2005. When the system rebooted, all of the icons on her desktop don't work (either do any programs from Start-Programs...) ,it shows/says what they are but the pictures are gone and she's unable to connect to the internet anymore. I did a check disk and it came up ok but I'm unable to get into control panel. It's really bizarre within Windows Explore, showing folders with registry headings. Her OS is Windows XP home edition. Any help, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,


A:No internet access and Icons on desktop not showing graphic... Please Help!

First I would suggest trying System Restore (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;306084) in Safe Mode for a quick fix to bring the system back to the normal status.

Second if the crash occured in the middle of the download, her system might be infected by malicious software. Try hijackthis or other antispyware tool to clear them before the download/upgrade.

How can I see other machines list in the Locations?
