Wired Connection: No Network Access, Shows no Physical Address

#1
I have a HP pavilion dv9917cl laptop. Nvidia Geforce 7150M/630M
Integrated ethernet adapter, Nforce 630M.

Updated to Windows 7 32-bit from Vista 32-bit, custom (start from scratch) install.

Initially my ethernet adapter showed up in Device Manager as Nforce Networking Controller, not working properly with a code 10 error. Windows update provided a chipset download, where I manually picked out and installed the ethernet adapter driver (Browse for driver -> let me manual pick -> Have disk -> )

So now in Device Manager my ethernet adapter shows up fine, wired LAN connection shows up in Network Connections etc.

EXCEPT, now no matter what I always get "No Network Access" or "No Internet Access" no matter where I plug in my ethernet cable. Of further interest is this: my IP, DNS, DHCP information all shows up under "details" from the LAN wired connection properties, but My physical address is 00-00-00-00-00-00.

Wireless is working 100% okay. I need to be able to use wired, however, for a number of reasons.

I nabbed drivers off the HP website, the Vista 32-bit drivers for the nvidia chipset, but there was no change.

My biggest question: is this a driver problem? or Windows 7?

Please help!

Similar problem

I have an HPzd7000 I just purchased used with Windows 7 installed. I am having a similar problem as you Runscotie..
LAN connection shows up but I also am getting the "No access" msg to TCP/IPv6 & 4

Im thinking this is a Windows 7 issue... as Im running an internet connection with the same modem on Windows XP (diff laptop) Usually I can just plug in an go!

Were you able to figure out the problem? I've looked on many forums and was unable to resolve..

Thanks!!

I have an HP dv6810us on VISTA and I have the same problem. It has been in the shop for warranty repairs 6 times since July. I get IpV4 Local and IPv6 Local Physical address is all 0"s. Wirelessly it works well. HP has taken remote control of the computer and they say it is a hardware problem as does Microsoft and Comcast but the warranty people "NEW" say that there is no problem. In between visits to the shop I have trouble shot it 6 ways to Sunday. I have completely restored the hard drives begining with format.

Go to Stat > Run, and type cmd, now type ping goggle.com/

My average is abbot 45ms. Are you getting a reply?

Also try the IP to get out:
Google
