    okay here's my problem i have had this issue for about two months now on and off and it is irritating the crap out of me. so my internet is more or less dying I can't for a period of time connect to the internet and when i go to the network and sharing center it doesn't identify my network even though I use it on a daily basis and have used it and identified it as my home network for eight months now. if I use the windows network diagnostics it gives me either the error in the title or it says "the dns server isn't responding" i have attempted to fix that problem by giving it a dns to use and have tried to set a static ip but nothing has worked. here is the text from the command prompt when i use the command ipconfig /all

    so ya if you have any solutions please post them i would love to have this fixed.

    Note: if this is a router problem I can't change any router settings but if not please don't blame it on that. also despite what my profile says i am running windows 7

    is this because there isn't a default gateway on my ethernet adapter for local area connection?

    okay i found a fix that seems to have worked thus far so i took the ip configuration the ipv4 adress,default gateway and such from the xp computer i use on the same network and put it in the windows seven computer that has the problem and thus far it has worked for about 24 hours
