    I've got a problem with my clean install of Windows 7. Everything works fine, but I cannot get on the network. When it is set to get an IP address automatically, I get the 169.xxx.xxx.xxx. If I manually set an IP address, it still cannot connect to the network. I have other computers running on the network without any problems.

    I tried reinstalling Windows various times, no luck.

    I tried uninstalling the NIC drivers and reinstall, no luck.

    I tried installing new updated drives for the NIC, not luck.

    I tried 3 different NIC's, no luck.

    I can ping 127.0.0.1, but when I ping the router, I get nothing...

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Yes it is. All other computers are being assigned an IP correctly from the router.

    Is it just the home group/network that you are having problems with?

    No, I get unidentified network... No internet, no internal network, nothing. Pinging anything other than 127.0.0.1 doesn't work....

    Thanks again for any suggestions or help anyone can offer.

    Have you tried the windows install that you have on other machines? Is the OS disc untouched or adapted?

    One computer is XP Pro and another is W7. I have used three different versions of the W7 downloads, both pre-activated and untouched. The computer is x64 which is what I've installed in the past, do you think an x32 installation would change things?

    w7 network probs

    Hi Guys,

    I have had network / router probs since upgrading to W7&. After many days of contact with Microsoft support I found out by accident that W7 would connect every time if the router was moved. It turns out that the switch mode PSU for my printer causes interference with W7 when the router is connected by cable. It sounds stupid I know but since relocating my PSU W7 logs on rock solid.

    check if those services are running and on "automatic":

    DHCP Client
    Network Connections
    Network List Service
    Network Location Awareness
    Network Store Interface Service
    TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper

    Also, if you have problems with network where two networks are detected (one work/home and other public) despite the fact that just one exists disable Bonjour Service (AKA mDNSResponder.exe or something like ##Id_String1.12345678_1234_5678_1234_123456789abc##). You wont be able to use Apple software for media players but network will work :)

    If you don't use Apple "hardware" you can also disable this service.
