Network / Sharing :: Lenovo Laptop Running Windows 8 - Default Gateway Is Not Available
Mar 8, 2013
I'm having trouble keeping my lenovo laptop (running windows 8) connected to the internet. I have been able to connect successfully to multiple wireless networks and access the internet until I tried to connect to the new network.
Initially everything is OK - I can connect to the network and access the internet. However after a short period of time (anywhere from a few seconds to 20 minutes) the network connection will change to limited, without internet access. If I simply disconnect and reconnect to the network the internet will immediately be working again (at least for a few seconds/minutes).
Alternatively, if I run the troubleshooter, I always get the message that the default gateway is not available, which has been fixed by resetting the wi-fi adapter.
After update to Windows 8.1 my internet connect keeps disconnecting. Hard land wire (Ethernet) and wireless connections does this. I've already switch modems/routers. Tech came out everything outside looks good. Getting message Default Gateway Not Available.

About every 10 minutos this occurs and I lose internet connection. When I troubleshoot it displays default gateway not available and it is fixed. Then about 10-15 minutes later it loses connection again. I tried ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew and nothing. I also uninstalled drivers and installed new ones and nothing?
I just got a new laptop (Samsung Ativ 7) and it worked great for a week on the router I have at home. I just moved into university housing and the wifi seemed to work for about a day, but since then (about 3 days now) it continuously disconnects from the internet. Like every 30 seconds... It's bad. If I'm lucky I'll get a few minutes, though strangely the problem seems to be getting worse each day and my time online seems to be getting shorter each day.
When I run the troubleshooter, it says the default gateway is not available and "fixes" the problem, which lasts for a few seconds/minutes before it reverts. Every now and then the problem will be "Wi-Fi doesn't have a valid IP configuration." That problem gets "fixed" and the internet never works, instead I have to trouble shoot again to see the gateway one, then I get a little bit of wifi. Lately I have to run troubleshooter multiple times before I get any results.
I think I'm having DNS issues, but what the cause or the solution is, I do not know... The lease is always listed for about 5 minutes (though I don't always make it that far) and when I try to connect the college VPN service, it says "Limited Access - DNS Failure."
My IPConfig info is below.

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and this error started happening. As soon as it did, I jumped into the Googlemobile to try to figure it out. Here is a list of what I've tried:
Uninstalled/reinstalled drivers via Device ManagerUpdated driversChanged networking drivers to and from defaultChanged 'Speed & Duplex' to and from 100 Mbps Full DuplexSwapped to a wireless connectionUpgraded router firmwarePower cyclingDeleted and reset network connectionsChanged antivirus (Using, and have been using, Webroot)
I've recently begun encountering connectivity problems. Seemingly randomly, the wifi connection becomes limited and webpages/games time out. Whenever I repair the connection it is always at the "reset wi-fi adapter" step that it seems to resolve the issue.
Steps I've taken thus far are:
Uncheck the box under my network adapters settings that said "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"show hidden devices under the network adapter device manager and try to uninstall all but my ethernet and wifi connections. aside from these two connections I wanted to keep, there were two bluetooth devices that I don't use/need, two adapters hidden with odd names, and quite a few WAN miniports. I tried uninstalling all of these...some uninstalled, others uninstalled but came back with a restart, and some wouldn't uninstall at all.
Anyway, below is my ipconfig:

I recently purchased a new computer and while trying to acess the internet I find that I can have a stable connection for no longer than 20 seconds. After that the network becomes unavailable and when I try to repair it I continue to get the error default gateway is unavailable.
I had a previous thread with my Windows 8.1 OS (8.1 - Wireless Adapter shuts off). I thought it was solved, but after a couple of days, it happened again.
I reformated my System Partition, installed a clean Windows 8 Pro version (Because i didn't had the problem before i upgraded to Win 8.1) and now i have the same issues.
Installed the latest drivers from Intel (Didn't fix it) Installed the drivers that came with my laptop for windows 8 (Didn't fix it) Disabled the Power Management setting to turn of the adapter Changed my DNS (Because i was also getting the 'Default Getaway' problem (Didn't fix it) Did the DISM thing, nothing
I'm starting to think that this is a problem on the Hardware Level? I could try to go back to Windows 7, but i'm afraid i'll have the same problem...
I recently purchased a new Asus laptop and have been having problems with my home network. I get disconnected probably once every 15 minutes and when the trouble shooter was run I get "default gateway unavaliable"
I believe this is due to my router. I have Comcast and it seems whenever I am connected to mine (or my girlfriends same model and make) I get disconnected but at my parent's house I dont have any problems.
I talked to the ASUS people and was given a driver that didnt work (as far as I know I installed it correctly) and was also told to refresh my computer to factory settings incase it was something I installed. Neither worked.
Here is my IPconfig date (I have unchecked the 'allow computer to turn off to conserve power' option)
I see that the constant "default gateway is not available" error is a common one for Windows 8. My connection drops every five minutes or less. It appears to get much worse when my brother is online on his computer on the same network. I've searched for solutions before, but none have worked so far. I've manually set the IP, I've turned off the power management option on the network, I've restarted my computer, I've made sure that my driver is updated,
For the last week or so, I've been having issues with my ASUS notebook disconnecting from my wireless network or having a limited connection. This would happen maybe twice a day, but eventually I went online and I found that I had an outdated driver for my Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230, and as soon as I downloaded the latest driver, my notebook would disconnect every 5 minutes or so. Running the troubleshooter just keeps returning the same thing; Default gateway not available. It also does this annoying thing where it'll disconnect and reconnect over and over again, so quickly that the network sharing center can't even register it's happening. I've tried resetting the WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP, and IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, I've tried a clean boot to see if it was a startup program affecting my connections, and I've changed my power settings so they don't turn off my adapter. I even tired booting my computer in safe mode, which didn't work.
Here's my ipconfig /all: Microsoft Windows [Version 6.2.9200] (c) 2012 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:UsersTim>ipconfig /all Windows IP Configuration
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 192.168.2.1 and 192.168.1.1 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.
I've been having troubles with my internet connection for about 3 weeks. It all started like the 4th day after they installed the service. First couple of times it would only happens once or twice a day, but lately is been happening about 10 to 20 times a day. Pretty annoying since I am an online gamer and I have invested some money on games where I can get perma-banned.
I can be either talking on skype, or in the middle of a match and internet will disconnect and show No internet access Limited Connectivity. Every time I use troubleshoot problems, I always get the same result "default gateway not available" and if I do what windows tells me to reset the modem nothing happens, my computer reconnects with the limited connectivity sign.
And in worst cases, it happens over, and over, and over again so I have to unplug the modem and then reboot my computer for it to work, but the last couple of times that I've done that, computer doesn't connect to the internet and the troubleshooter says the Wi-fi is disabled, and asks if I want to fix it as administrator.
At first I thought it was the company's fault until I noticed that sometimes when my computer has no internet connection, I can still use my the internet on my ipod. That doesn't happen always, though.

I Just Upgrade My Laptop Windows From 7 To 8.1 But I Have Lots Of Limited Wi-Fi connection And I Just downloaded The drivers For Win 8 From Hp Website But Still Have It And The Only annoying Fix Is When I Do The troubleshooting Think Its Says default gateway Not available Or something Like That . My Laptop Is Hp G7 Wireless Driver is Broadcom 4313GN 802.11 B .
I have an Acer Aspire laptop with Windows 8.1. My main modem is located downstairs in my house, with a laptop connected to it (it works fine, never any issues). Before, I had a router wired upstairs to connect my laptop to. Here's the problem - it doesn't matter if I am using a wireless or a wired connection, I get a limited connection. I will have Windows troubleshoot the problem, and it always says that the problem was that the Default Gateway is not Available, and it will say that it is fixed. However, this randomly happens over and over anywhere from 2 minutes to 20 minutes after I just "fixed" it.
I have just recently tried running a wire across my house to plug directly into the modem. This worked for a while, but the same thing started happening. Keep in mind, there is also a laptop wired directly to the modem downstairs in my house. I believe (but I haven't checked this in a while) that if I connect to the WiFi from my modem downstairs, it works fine.
I have win 8 in my lappy... I was able to run internet but now it is showing that "proxy server unable to connect ".. then I checked my ip settings the default gateway was gone.now every time I wanted to save it, it was erased from there...
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.
I just got a new Windows 8 laptop, a Lenovo Y510p, and I've been having several wireless issues with it. Pretty early on my computer froze up so I had to force it to shut down. After resolving the issue, I was unable to load any websites, however a flush of the dns cache fixed the problem right up. Fast forward a few hours, and suddenly I can't connect to the router in my dorm room-I just suddenly lost my connection and now I can't reconnect.
My roommate has a router set up for our room connected to an internet jack in the wall. It is configured as WPA2-PSK. I usually connect to this when in the room, but now I can't-windows just says "can't connect to this network". There is wifi throughout the dorm already, which I can connect to just fine, however the signal isn't as strong.

I have a Lenovo laptop running Windows 8.1. I run a number of VB6 programs. One is an estimating system that makes use of .dat files. When I first install the program and the files, everything works fine.
The problem comes when I 'over-write' a .dat file with a newer version, with some basic cost changes (the file updated on a different computer which contains VB6). As I 'paste' from a USB stick it asks if I want to over-write, which I obviously agree to.
However, as I run the program, I still appear to be using data from the previous file! The latest update figures are ignored.
To check this out further, I have even deleted (removed completely) the .dat file from the appropriate directory, but when running the program it still inputs data from the original file.
This leads me to believe there must be another copy of the file open somewhere (hence the phantom!), possibly as a 'last used' reference.
I have been on to the taskbar and ensured I have unchecked the two boxes about retaining files etc.
Getting the limited connectivity problem when waking up my Toshiba laptop running 8.1. Having to reboot it every time I go to use it is getting old. Tried telling it not to shut off the wireless network car when going to sleep but that didn't seem to work.
Recently I have been intermittently getting disconnected from the internet while gaming / streaming. If I ran the troubleshooter, the error that I got was "Default gateway not available". Resetting my router/modem and restarting the PC every time it happened seemed to resolve this for a while. and is now accompanied by another error saying that "Ethernet" doesn't have a valid IP configuration. This is much more frequent now, every 10-20 minutes or so. I am on wired internet coming from the combo router/modem from my ISP/Cable co.
Attached is my ipconfig /all while working and after the error.
I am running Win 8.0 with the StartIsBack overlay and a wireless Motorola SBG6580 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway. I am 12 feet from the gateway and usually have 4 bars in signal strength but as I use the internet I drop to 3 bars and my web pages don't update. Within 1 minute after that I get No Internet Access on my wireless. I disconnect and reconnect and everything is good again for about 3 to 5 minutes then it happens again. If I reboot the gateway all seems good for a longer time. My wife runs Win 7.0 and does not have any problems. I am running a secure WEP wireless. My next door neighbor has an unsecured Motorola SB6800 gateway that I can connect to and am not dropped ever. If I connect an Ethernet cable to the gateway it works great. I am betting this must be a config problem in my laptop (Dell inspiron X14)
This problem has just started several weeks. I use internet by my router WiFi connected to my PC it just keep disconnecting from the WiFi after i always reboot my PC then i can connect again but today i tried to restarting my computer and try to reconnect but i cannot find the WiFi network, i don't know why.
Now i am using WiFi USB, but its very slow and i also tried to disconnect it and if the WiFi network will stay or not, unfortunately directly after disconnect the USB, the WiFi disappear.
Simply for the home desktop and want to share with other kit on the home network.
When I boot up it appears I have to always tweak the settings :
1) Control Panel > System > Change settings > Network ID and select under "Select the option that best describes your network" so I opt for I tick "this is a home computer; it's not part of a business network." 2 )The reboot.
All works fine and all devices can be seen and read/write in accordance with the appropriate share settings.
Now the issue is when I next reboot the
Control Panel > System > Change settings > Network ID and select under "Select the option that best describes your network" will default to "This computer is part of a business network; I use it to connect to other computers at work".
So I have to got through steps 1 and 2 again.
How to I get Windows 8.1 Pro x64 to default to the "this is a home computer; it's not part of a business network." on each boot without having to manual configure.
I installed Windows 8 in my notebook, Lenovo 3000 G430. It worked fine for a while, but after I had a long shutdown, when reboot again, the Wifi was not working. The drivers are still there, and when activating the Wifi from Fn F5, it goes to Airplane Mode.
I removed Windows 8 and reinstalled Window Vista, the Wifi came back and working fine. I tried this many round, it produced the same result.
I believe that it is compatible issue with the driver for the Wifi. Can some one able to provide the driver for BROADCOM Wireless 802.11g for Windows 8?
I have had my computer for a little under 2 years, and everything was fine until I updated to windows 8.1. Now every 5-10 minutes, my internet keeps changing from working fine, to saying Limited. Disconnecting and reconnecting fixes the problem for a few minutes. I am using several anti virus software as in AVG and McAfee, and they detect no problems. I have tried to troubleshoot the problem, and it works for about 2-5 minutes about half the time. The other half, it doesn't work at all. It takes about 30 minutes to do anything that would normally take about 15 minutes.
Lenovo P585. The wifi does not work all that well...... It either switches between 2-4 bars infrequently or it takes 10-20 seconds for a page to start loading. My drivers are up to date.
Recently it has gotten worse and sometimes it says I have no connection all together. My tablet and other computers connect fine enough and don't have the same 10-20 delay for a page to load.
Also a torrent site I go to frequently has not been loadable for over a month. The torrents also don't seed. The site will only load on my Windows Phone 8 with wifi on and 4g off. This lead me to believe that my ISP is not blocking the site.
I get this on any PCs in the house: Error code: ERR_NETWORK_ACCESS_DENIED
Not sure why this happens, every other page loads fine.
