Unidentified network Local only

This problem started yesterday for no apparent reason after being OK for
months. I'm posting this from another laptop using the same router. It
seems this is a common problem without any certain resolution. I've
tried most of the plentiful suggestions on the web without success.

I obviously don't want to flatten the laptop and re-load just to get
internet access back.

Can someone PLEASE help with this :sa:

You need to post some more information. Can you see other computers on
the local network? Can you see your router? Can you ping your router?
What's the IP address on the system? Did it connect to your network or
your neighbors? Have you installed any software recently? Have you
made any changes to your router? Did you try doing a System Restore
back to a date when it worked?

Start with those questions, go from there.

Re: Unidentified network Local only

"Can you see other computers onthe local network?" - there aren't any
"Can you see your router?" - yes
"Can you ping your router?" - how?
"What's the IP address on the system?" - where do I get this?
"Did it connect to your network or your neighbors?" - it did connect to
the neighbors router but it won't now.
"Have you installed any software recently?" - no
"Have you made any changes to your router? - no
"Did you try doing a System Restore back to a date when it worked? - I
tried but they all failed.

Sorry for my lack of knwledge on networking

Man, I feel for you. Ever since I installed Vista I have this problem
as well. I have found that repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting
to the network eventually leads to success. But it is a right royal
PITA.

By the presence of the 169.254.x.x addresses, you can tell that this PC
is not receiving a DHCP IP address/SNM/GW/DNS response from the rtr.

You can either fix the DHCP server on the rtr, or set your laptop to be a
static IP.

Agreed... he is not getting an address from the router.

To the OP: Do you know how to access your router from a web browser?

Re: Unidentified network Local only

I can't get to the router from the laptop giving the problem, but I can
from the one I'm using to send this. I travell a lot overseas, so will a
static Ip give me problems elsewhere?
