    I have 2 computer, A desktop running xp and a laptop running windows 7. Recently i reset the router and the modem and while the desktop gets internet access, the laptop does not. It connects to the network but it says the network isnt connected to the internet. I am stumped.

    Check to see if you have this little devil in your services list:

    "##Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B87 9762 ##"

    If you do, stop it and disable it. It is actually the Bonjour DNS Responder Service, and I believe it is the cause of the "Unidentified Network."

    The Unidentified Network disappeared after stopping this service and a quick disable/enable of the NIC, restoring Internet access.

    I Actually just rebooted, edited this post, and then re-enabled the offensive service to see what would happen...Immediately after enabling the NIC and this bastard service, the "Unidentified Network" returned...stopped it, disabled it, disable/enable NIC...Internet back up and running and no "Unidentified Network." (woot - woot!)

    Hope that helps! I haven't had issues since...
    :razz:

    FYI - I experienced this in both build 7100 and 7127...I am running 7127 now x64 - and discovered this fix just last night...so far so good just rebooted and then edited this post...I believe this fix will solve 7100 build issues too; however... I have not tested 7100 again yet.

    ...I also re-enabled Win 7's Discovery Mapping services, but always leave IPv6 disabled just because I am not using it.

    ...another two reboots, and a hard disk addition, and no problems with the Internet! - If you tried another fix such as changing the address of your network adapter, under "Advanced" - this is not necessary...I set mine back to "Not Configured." Everything is working fine as long as the Bonjour service is not running...

    My system:
    ASUS P5E
    Quad Core Q6600
    4GB Corsair Dominator DDR2
    NIC: Marvell Yukon 8E8056; driver v10.69.2.3 (4/21/2009)
    ***fyi - i did update the default Windows driver with this, Vista x64 driver

    For the record, there is some blame pointing towards the following software, of which I do have installed and running properly:
    Office 2007 SP2
    Adobe CS3 (updated current)
