Networking :: Unidentified Network On Laptop After Upgrade?
Dec 6, 2015
I upgraded my laptop from windows 7 to windows 10 with the free upgrade that came out a while back. I recently bought an Ethernet cord to enhance my gaming performance, but when I plug it in it says identifying for a little while then says unidentified network no Internet. My friend came over and tried it on his laptop and it worked for his Windows 8.1 . I have a Comcast router/modem combo and have it hooked to a western digital router which is what the Ethernet cord is run from.
i've been with this problem for months and i have tried multiple solutions offered by others on the internet, yet i'll give it another try here.
i'm using a powerline adapter directly plugged into the wall on my desktop. And it has worked excellent before, but suddenly someday it did not get a valid IP adress anymore for my pc, i have tried giving it an ip adress manually but without succes. i also tried updating the driver but there was no update.
my network and sharing center displays unidentified network and windows problem solver detects the problem 'network name' does not have a valid ip configuration.
Strange issue that just started today. My Ethernet adapter shows unidentified network and none of my apps have internet access, however my web browsers work just fine. I am even making this post from the adapter that supposedly has no access. I have been searching around for a solution, but no problem seems similar to mine. Check out the screenshot below.
I have two computers running Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview Build 9926. One computer is a desktop and it is working perfectly. The other is a new HP 15-F039WM laptop and it came with Windows 8.1 With Bing installed and it also works perfectly in Windows 8.1 mode. I resized the hard drive on the HP laptop to free up 150Gb of space and then installed Windows 10 TP Build 9926 from DVD. It still works perfectly when I use dual boot to go into Windows 8.1. When I use dual boot to go into Windows 10, the network icon in the system tray says "Unidentified network - No Internet access". I did swap cables, etc, but I knew that wouldn't work because the laptop does have Internet access when booting to Windows 8.1.
I read through some threads here after searching for DHCP and connectivity issues and even tried some of the suggestions such as using regedit to look at the network profile. There isn't a network profile. It is displaying a 169... IP Address, so I know that it isn't getting an IP. I tried to manually add the correct settings that work for Windows 8.1 (192.168.0.15 with 192.168.0.1 as the Gateway), but that fails.
My aunt did the free Windows 10 update from Windows 7. After the update she had no internet connection so she decided to roll back to Windows 7. After the roll back, she still has no connection. Her connection icon says "unidentified network" and will not connect to the internet. It is plugged directly into the modem.
I have been using a wireless connection but have decided its better for online gaming if i go wired/ethernet.
I am having a problem "unidentified network/ No internet access"
Now in the past with an xp pc i connected the ethernet cable and that was it i assumt there is some sort of set up i need to do for win10?
Also it may be worth letting you know i am not directly connected to the router via an ethernet cable, i am using the plug in things that sends the signal down the house electrical wires. Maybe this is an issue although it wasnt on my xp pc.
So yesterday my internet stopped working which is ethernet to d-link hardline ac adapter to router. Xbox is connected same way and it works perfect. Tried all the usual reset/restart stuff. Keep getting unidentified network no internet. My router reads my PC so i know its connected. Updated the ethernet controller drivers to win 10. No luck. My wireless adapter doesnt work either but i hooked it up and while it connects to my router and has a good signal it will work for a few mins and than drop out.
So I have my computer connected to my laptop via Ethernet cable this is how I get Internet access to my pc usually it shows my network name and that I am connected to the Internet. just this morning I upgraded my pc from 8.1 to 10 and ever since my network says unidentified and limited access I updated and installed all the drivers for my motherboard including lan I also tried manually putting tcp/ip and it still did not solve my problem so I switched it back to automatic but no luck .
yesterday my Ethernet connection stopped working suddenly was using and any moment stopped working I have tried many things and I can not make it work, this is the model of the adapter (Intel (R) Ethernet Connection I218-LM) and this is the error in the diagnosis of Intel.
connection Status: Failed.This test Relies on a response from a gateway, DNS, DHCP, or WINS server and no such response was received. any such server connection for this May be unavailable or misconfigured.This adapter is configured to Obtain an IP address automatically but no DHCP server is present on the network.Windows selected an IP address using Alternate Private IP Addressing.
I have 2 desktops and 1 laptop at home. All 3 are joined in a homegroup, and all network and sharing settings are selected properly. All 3 computers have same windows accounts (passwords), same programs and same internet security.
The 3 computers show up in the network folder and can be accessed from any other computer.However access to the laptop is often denied, by error message 0x80070035 "network path not found"
From the laptop, each desktop is always accessible, no matter who is signed in.
From the desktops, the laptop is often not accessible (error message)
after upgrading from windows 8.1 to windows 10 I have no internet connection.From looking around various forums the problem is usually a VPN or anti virus issue so I have used the f secure removal tool to uninstall my anti virus and used revo uninstaller to remove hotspot shield VPN from my PC before upgrading with no success. The network connections icon looks connected when the pc is first turned on then it changes to the yellow exclamation mark. I have updated the network adpater driver to the latest and also tried plugging in a USB wireless adapter which has the same problem. Will refresh your pc in windows 10 resolve this issue and does this remove all my saved files?
So after 2 failed attempts at installing Windows 10 on an Acer Aspire Z5801 PC, I finally managed to succeed. However, a new problem appeared after installation.The Wireless network adapter went completely missing. Windows does not detect its existence at all, it's like the PC doesn't have one installed. It doesn't appear in Device manager + isn't listed as an "unknown device". It's simply not there at all.The wired network adapter is there, but not wireless.
Installing the driver from Acer's website - I had to select Windows 7 64-bit as the version is all that's available for my adapter.I used a USB stick to transfer the setup files to the Acer PC. It said it successfully installed but still didn't appear, even after a reboot.Used a USB wireless adapter (Netgear) to see if it was an issue with how Windows 10 handles Wi-Fi - nope, that installed and worked fine.Scanning for Windows updates after using the USB adapter. Some updates were found and installed (no driver ones though), but still no Wi-Fi.
In the end, I reverted back to Windows 7 and what do you know? The adapter got recognised again.The USB adapter isn't a viable solution since it's required by another PC. I just used it for testing purposes.
I have DELL Inspiron 14R N4010. Automatic upgraded to Windows 10 Home. Previously I have Windows 7 Home Premium. After upgrade I didn't see the wired network adapter. However my wifi is working fine and can access Internet. I tried to re-install the LAN driver (Atheros AR8152 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller Driver); it ask for upgrade/repair/de-install means driver is already present in the system. In spite of that upgraded the dirver (got the upgraded driver setup from Dell). Unfortunately, the device is still not visible in device manager.
I am trying to set up our server which we have on my sisters new laptop. when I go to 'map network drive' and click 'browse' the server called 'BGE-B-NAS' doesn't appear on the list. I have tried multiple times and nothing seems to be working. I also tried to type it in manually but it just said that 'windows cannot access BGE-B-NASCompanydata'. Is it to do with the fact that this is a laptop and it is using the wifi instead of being wired?
Both the Windows 10 laptop and the Windows Vista laptop have discovery on and file and printer sharing on. The printer is connected to the Windows Vista laptop. The Windows Vista laptop can see the files within the Windows 10 laptop. The Windows 10 laptop can see the Windows Vista computer but as soon as it tries to see inside it gives an error about "spelling of the name, etc." If using the diagnosis tool it says "One or more network protocols are missing from this computer". "Resolving problems as administrator" does not solve anything.
I have a laptop running Windows 7 that is connected to a printer. I am connected to the internet using a WiFi connection. I have a homegroup called workgroup. My wife has a laptop running Windows 7, connects to the internet using the same WiFi modem and prints using the printer on my laptop.
I downloaded Windows 10 on to my Windows 7 laptop and all of a sudden my wife can't print anymore. Microsoft, you've done it again. How I hate this!
I fooled around with HomeGroup settings on the Windows 10 laptop and the system attributes on my wife's laptop and now I can see her computer on my Windows 10 system. But I cannot see the printer on my system from her laptop.
I tried to click on my compueter from her laptop and I get a request for username and password. I don't know what username and password to use. I gather from reading the forum that I should put the name of my laptop in the username but I don't know where to look for the password.
Yesterday I downloaded Windows 10 on my wife's laptop and she immediately lost access to my Brother MFC-8500 printer which she was previously accessing though a wireless network and a router. The Brother is hardwired to the desktop, which was also upgraded to Windows 10, with a USB cord and is listed under printers on the desktop as "Brother MFC-8500 USB." Could you give me the procedure and the syntax for making this printer accessible once again to the laptop? If the syntax requires the desktop's IP address, could you tell me how to find it because the tutorials on the Web still talk about the Control Panel which seems to have been replaced with "Settings."
I have a Dell Latitute E5530 laptop that won't connect to my secured home SSID. I have 2 other laptops connected to it wireless, plus phones, plus 2 TV's (via a Roku and a Chromecast). I thought there might be a limit to what I can connect (i.e., 5 devices), however I brought home a 2nd laptop from work and that connected with no issue while the Dell Latitude still cannot. I don't even get the option to type in the Password Key, it simply says "Cannot connect to the network". I'm able to connect to an unsecured network with this same machine, no problem. I've tried reset the network adapter, I'm just stumped at this as to why this computer won't connect.
I have a Lenovo Z575 laptop w/ Windows 10. I recently updated to Windows 10 a couple months ago and everything was fine up until recently. I've been having this issue the past couple of days where I try to load up a webpage, it states that connection has timed out, so I use the Troubleshoot Problems option for my wifi, and it gives me the statement "One or more network protocols are missing". I used the "netsh int ip reset" command in the Command Prompt, and that seemed to work at first, but yesterday it happened again, only this time, it seems to pick and choose what pages load.
My laptop is indicating that it is connected to my home network and that it has internet access but when I go to the network center it says that it doesn't have any connections. Attaching an ethernet cable doesn't work (which was an earlier problem too) I already updated my drivers and ran the troubleshooter but it didn't work. I also restarted my router so I did most things I can. Side note: It happened really suddenly from one moment to the other...
Today, while having lunch at my favorite restaurant, I tried to connect to their WiFi network as I usually do. I got the following message:Checking network resources.And then, after a few seconds: Can't connect to this network. My obvious question is, why not? To begin with, was it something wrong with my computer, or something wrong with their network?
DHCP server did not respond DHCP server did not issue an IP addressStored password incorrect; enter new password: _________ WiFi adapter card not respondingInsufficient virtual memory
But no, none of that useful information was offered. How am I supposed to fix the problem?
I have a desktop PC running Win7 64Bit Ent. It's not actually in use, so nothing is connected. I also have a laptop running Win10 64Bit which I'm using to type this post. I have some audio files on my desktop that I'd like to pull off of there, and put them on my laptop, and then maybe on a cloud. My 1st question: Is it possible to simply use a USB cable between 2 USB 3 ports if I simply power up the desktop with the USB cable connected? Does the USB protocol provide for me to see those HDD's on the desktop via the laptop? I'm quite limited for physical space, and I don't need the desktop to be running permanently, I just need to get these files off of it. If that's NOT a solution, what is the next easiest method?
I have forgotten my network security key, all of the info I find points me to connections, wireless properties, etc..... This does not match my updated Windows 10. What is the procedures for the latest updated Windows 10?
I have two Win 7 computers on my wired network and 6 Win XP computers on this same network. This main computer was Win 7 and just upgraded to Win 10 in November. For a year this network has worked just fine, plug and play basically when I set it up, now after Christmas shutdown (2 weeks), I can't see any of the computers on this network. The only thing I can see is the media drive on a computer called 6Head2. All I really do is transfer files from this main computer out to those 8 other computers.
What is wrong with my computer? Network discover, file sharing all checked, network location was changed from Public to Private today by me. But it did work last year, even with the network location being public.
