Network / Sharing :: Connecting To Router - Get Unidentified Network?

Jan 23, 2014

Wifi worked, walked away for 10 minutes, then found that it didn't. I would normally just reset the router, but I live in an apartment building and the router is in my landlords office.

When I did ipconfig /all, my ip started with 169, which I know isn't normal. But when I try to do a /release and /renew, I get the error "No operation can be performed on local area connection *14 while it has it's media disconnected." I am unable to attempt a wired connection, as the router is not accessible to me.

.I'm not sure if this is a router issue, or an issue with my laptop (less than a year old.) I am a grad student and I currently have to do most of my work via my iphone, which is getting very inconvenient.

Network / Sharing :: Unidentified Wired Network That Doesn't Exist?

Aug 21, 2013

my network connection on my laptop. I recently moved up to my college and am now on their network. However, I didn't have this problem at first. But recently if I go to my network connections, there is always a wired connection listed named "Unidentified Network" which has "Limited" access. The problem here is that I am not connected to any wired networks. There is no cable plugged into my computer so I don't understand how this is possible. The only thing I have installed recently is Virtualbox, just in case that could affect it.

Network / Sharing :: Unidentified Network (no Internet Access) At Workplace

Feb 22, 2013

I just got a brand new Samsung Laptop for work. I dont know a ton about windows 8 either im fairly new to it. I work at a mental hospital doing security and we are allowed to have a laptop for over night shifts. I have an Alfa wireless antenna (cause i get low signal where im stationed) along with my normal laptop Wifi.

Heres the story. I was using my laptop antenna then out of no where it said "Identified Network (no internet access)" then my internet just stopped. I had this happen on my old laptop and it lasted a few days then worked like normal again. Then i switched to mt usb antenna and it worked fine for about 20 mins then all of a sudden it went it "Identified Network (no internet access)". So I was stuck with no internet. I tried looking up fixes on my ipod and i tried 3 Ways To Fix The Unidentified Network Error in Windows 8 and it didnt work I tried How To Fix Unidentified Network Windows - YouTube and it didn't work either. I'm dying here cause I have to sit in a room for 12 hours tonight with no way to keep my self from falling asleep or entertained.

Network / Sharing :: Unidentified Network Since Upgrading To Windows 8

Nov 16, 2012

I'm using my usb modem connected to my laptop to provide an internet access to my xbox while I was on Win 7 and it runs good but after I upgrade my OS to Win 8 now I can connect no more. It says that my ethernet connection is "unidentified network" while I still have my ICS enabled (My USB Modem still stated "shared"). I have set IPv4 to obtain automatically though.

Network / Sharing :: Unidentified Network With No Internet Access

Sep 15, 2014

I got this problem on my laptop Asus u38dt under Windows 8.1 a couple of months ago. It cannot connect to any network either via Wi-Fi or Ethernet (I tried an external USB Wi-Fi adapter as well, with the same result). In case of getting IP with DHCP, the network is shown as Unidentified network with no address assiged (IP is like 169.*). When static IP enabled, the network name is correct. But in both cases, connection is Limited and with No Internet access.

Connection can't be established with any router while other devices connect properly with them, so the problem is on the laptop side.

With all of this, any ping, even to, results in General failure.

When booted in Linux liveUSB, network works fine, so it is clearly not a hardware issue.

I tried resetting TCP/IP stack with "netsh int ip reset", reinstalling drivers, reinstalling the network adapter, and lots of other methods and still it doesn't work. Restoring system is not an option since I don't have any restoration point prior to the problem anymore.

Network / Sharing :: Internet Connection Sharing - Unidentified Network?

Apr 23, 2013

I am having trouble with ICS on win 8. On my old laptop (win xp) I used to be able to share my 3Connect dongle internet to connect to Xbox live. I recently got a new laptop with win 8 and whenever I share this internet connection I can never connect on my Xbox (the network to internet part fails). When everything is connected up and shared the Ethernet says 'Unidentified Network' which i believe is the cause of the problem. I've read i may require a driver update but i cannot seem to find one.

My Laptop: Toshiba Satellite C855-29N

what to do, maybe i am not setting up the connection sharing properly?

Network / Sharing :: Lenovo G505 Laptop - Cannot Connect To Home Network - BT Router

Dec 30, 2013

I have a lenovo G505 laptop - it will no longer connect to my BT home hub despite it showing as being available. I suspect it might be to do with the fact that it is has a passkey - I entered it yesterday when prompted and it connected fine, but now I'm not being given the option of entering the key.

I've also tried connected using the BT wifi (as opposed to homehub) but once again it will not connect me. I've been through all the troubleshooting options, and searched under every term I can think of, but nothing is working.

Network / Sharing :: Can Linksys Router Block Access To Network

Jan 3, 2014

Since I changed the security parameters to my Linksys Wireless Router so my grandson could log in while visiting me on his laptop. I can't seem to be able to access my other computer on my home network. Enclosed is an "ipconfig/all" screenshot. I need to access my printer on my other printer which I was able to do prior to playing around with my router. All the diagnostics say more or less the same thing. They can "see" the computer but it isn't responding...

Network / Sharing :: Connecting To Mapped Network Drives At Boot

Apr 28, 2014

This is a boot up timing issue, registry fix for network comming up. I am on a wired LAN which works ok. However, recently when booting I am getting the message cannot connect to network drives - these are mapped drives to NAS boxes.

However, when I access the drives the 'red X's' change to the network symbol and access is working. Its seems the computer wants to connect before the network is up. It is not a credential issue, but boot order. Is there anyway to make the network come up before the computer wants to map to it. Not a problem but a nag.

Network / Sharing :: Connecting To Other Machines On Local Network

Jan 26, 2014

I have two desktop PCs connected to my router, one named Mirabel running Win7 Pro, and one named Bessie running Win Server 2008 R2 (both 64-bit). These can see each other quite happily.

I just installed Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit on my Dell Vostro 3750 lap top, which I named Rosie, but am having problems connecting to the other machines.

When I go to the Network node in Windows Explorer on Rosie, I can't see either of the other two machines, but if I type Bessie in the address bar, it shows me the two drives that are shared. However, if I try and explore either of these, I get the following error...

The laptop is part of a workgroup, imaginatively named "Workgroup" as are the other two machines...

I changed the properties of the TCP/IP v4 to match the ones on the other two machines (with a different IP address of course) but this didn't work.

The odd thing is that I can browse the shared drives on Mirabel without any problem. In case it's relevant, both desktop machines can browse Rosie without problems. Windows 8 has changed so much from Win7, and it's wasting a lot of time trying to get it set up.

Network / Sharing :: Connecting To Network Printer?

Feb 4, 2014

My friend got a new computer and is trying, unsuccessfully, to connect to a network printer that he says he has used in the past, in his one man office. He gets his internet access through a wireless router. But the printer is connected via Ethernet cable to a second router that does not have internet access, but does have two printers connected to it.

So his new computer is connected to two different networks, the wireless network, and the wired network. I'm not familiar with having your computer connected to two networks simultaneously.

So my question is, is there any problem doing it like this, and should the network printers show up when the computer does a search in Add Printer? Because it does not find anything right now, not sure if we need to be looking at the printers, the router, or the computer.

He is not able to connect the printers to the wireless router, they are in different rooms. And there are no other computers connected to either network right now.

When you first connect to a new network Windows 8.1 opens up the following window:

I am trying to automate a way so that the answer is always: yes, turn on sharing and connect to devices.

It needs to be automatic without requiring the user to click on the window. This will be used in systems where no keyboard/screen/mouse are present.

Network / Sharing :: QoS Ignored By Access Point Router

Aug 8, 2014

I am sharing my internet connection with my roommates, but lately they have been using P2P to download stuff which uses almost all the internet speed available. I have set up QoS to limit their bandwidth in the main Asus wifi router which directly connects to the modem, it works great for a few days, but then it doesn't work anymore, I still get slow internet speed now. Since my flat has 2 wifi routers, one is the main and another one is set up with a different name but still connects to the main router via the ethernet cable a few metres away so that the wireless range is increased. Just for your information, the two routers are transmitting on different channel, if you think that might be the cause and they have different SSID.

Could it be possible that the QoS only works in the main wifi router and doesn't affect the other wifi router which my roommates also have access to it?

I have changed the default router password so I am sure that they have no access to the router's settings.

Network / Sharing :: Can't Get Allow Access To WiFi Router

Jan 19, 2014

Yesterday I purchased a new Dell Laptop. In the setup and configuration the unit found my wireless network. I have two other PC's (not windows 8) two Kindles, two Cell phones and an IPAD on this router and all the Dell would say it it can't connect to this network. It won't ask for the passkey, it provides no additional information and I can't get online in my own network with this system. I can however log on to a neighbors unsecured network effortlessly.

I am using an old airlink 101 wireless router that has been trouble free for several years. I tried to log onto airlink for a support inquiry but they no longer provide support for this model.

In the past I was able to log into my work's domain, nahrc, with my user name and password via the ctrl+alt+dlt method fromt he log on screen. I can plug in the ethernet cable into my laptop, and the nahrc network appears in the wired connections area, but I can't seem to connect/access our shared drives. Is it possible to log into my laptop like you could in windows 7 and access my account, or is this just not possible anymore.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 - Router Web Config Page

Oct 19, 2013

Since upgrading to 8.1 , if I try and access my routers web page to change some config settings , the browser (and I've tried 4 different ones) connects to the web interface REALLY REALLY slowly... we're talking 5-10 minutes just to show part of the menu UI and even then not all the graphics show.

I can connect to the same interface using my tablet and it's instant...

Under Windows 8.0 it worked just fine also...

General web browsing is fine as is internet access for gaming etc...

Network / Sharing :: No Gateway Default On Router - Cant Setup

Sep 15, 2014

I'm trying to set up my router to the new internet connection and get the wifi going but for the life of me I cant get it set up. The internet connection itself is fine, from modem to pc. Once I have the modem in the mix,it gets no/limited connectivity and cannot reach the setups. I have tried the classic and and about 5 other variations, along with 'http://router'. My router is a Belkin N300 Wireless N Router. If I use a command prompt and do 'ipconfig', there is no ip address beside 'gateway default' once the router is connected. I have reset my router to factory settings. I've tried using a static ip address for my computer [though not sure if i did it correctly]. My DHCP is enabled.
