Unidentified network in Windows 7

    Question

  • Hi everyone!

    First of all, even though the subject of my question seems to be regarding the same problem as others are having, its not (well, not exactly). Here's the situation:

    I've run Windows 7 Professional on both of my computers at home for a while (laptop and stationary) Stationary connects through cable and laptop through wireless. They connect to a D-Link DGL-4300 router which has worked perfectly fine with both XP, Vista and Windows 7. Yesterday when I came home from school I couldn't get the laptop to find the wireless network, even though my stationary computer was working properly, e.g listening to internetradio, surfing the web and DL'ing torrents at 1MB/s. 

    So I reboot the router, still the same issue. Laptop cant find wireless but stationary works fine. So I repeat this for a couple of times to no avail. I then decide to reset the router (pushing the small indented reset-button on the back for a while) This is where the problem starts.

    Now neither of my computer finds any internet and the network logo just says "Identifying.." for like 3 minutes, and then shows "Unidentified network, no internet access".. Both of the computer gets internetaccess if I bypass the router and just plug in the WAN-cable into the computers, so no problems with the NICs..

    Rebooting the computers does not help, I still get the same error message. If I check the full network-"map", there's a yellow triangle between the computer and network, and a red cross (or something like that) between the network and internet. 

    Anyone got any clues on what to do?

  • Hi Hardtail,

    Based on my known, Bonjour multicast DNS responder service may cause the similar issue.

    Hope it helps.

  • EDIT: Everything just started working now. Didn't do anything except rebooting the router for the 100th time. I'm not going to celebrate yet though, as I've heard that people have had this issue solved by itself and then as unreasonably as it started working again, it stops. Anyways, I will update this ticket if the problem appears again..
