Issue - System believes I have two Networks
Good morning all.

Not only am I new to Vista, I'm also new to this Forum. Thank you for allowing me to join.

As mentioned, I'm new to Vista so please treat me as a complete novice!

I recently purcheased a new PC which therefore came with Vista Home already loaded. The first couple of weeks the System kept telling me that a new Network had been detected and it wanted me to name it; having named it the system then finished the login process. After a couple of weeks this stopped.

On the weekend, the System failed to conect to the Internet. Using the Windows help facility it seems I now have 2 Networks detected; my Network and another 'unkown' Network. Following the Windows guidance to disable this 'unkown' Network, it actually disables both Networks! I tried everything Windows suggested but I either had no Network or 2 Networks. It seems this second Network is ghost like as I can't get rid of it unless I get rid of My Network. It then suggested updating my Broadband Software connection driver (which is Sky Broadband); I inserted the disk but being a novice couldn't find the driver in the folders easily and so I gave up! However, when I booted up agian this issue had been resolved as I only had one Network again!

The following day when I booted up the problem was back!

Can anyone please explain this problem to me? Is there anything I can do to rectify it?

Thank you.

C Jones.

I have moved this issue to the Windows Vista Home Premium
Apologies, thought I had the Home Basic OS! I have also added a few more details.

Regards.

Hi C Jones,

can you try the following for me.

Open the Command Prompt from type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipall.txt" (without the quotes)

If you then open Explorer and go the C: you should see a file called ipall.txt

Can you open this file and select all the text. In the Edit menu you should find Copy. Click on this and then in a new post Right Click your mouse and select Paste.

This will show me a bit of info on your network/s

regards

Steve

File did not save
Hi, thanks for responding.

I tried to follow your guidance, openning the run command and typing in ipconfig /all >c:\ipall.txt but the window opened too quickly for me to see what it was doing and then disappeared and the file ipall.txt is nowhere to be found.

I have got a way around this issue at present but I would like to resolve it. I have also taken some screen dumps of the Network and Sharing Center and have them in a word document which I converted to a Web page and have attached. When I switch on the Broadband two Networks appear, one called Network (Private network) and the other called Unidentified Network (Public network) which means I can't get out onto the Net. Diasabling one disables both. However if I then enable Local Area Connection it only opens up the one Network called Network (Private network).

If there's something I'm doing incorrectly to create the text file I apologise. Please let me know if there's another way I can get at that information for you.

Many thanks.

Hi c_jones64,

we need to open the command prompt a certain way, try this,

In the "Start Search" box type CMD

Do not hit ENTER.

Instead hit CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER

Then type ipconfig /all >c:\ipall.txt

This should do it,

regards

Steve

Hi c_jones64,

it sure does make sense

We will turn off IPv6 and this problem should go away.

It looks like you 1 network using IPv4 and one for IPv6.

See Vistaheads Tip#4 - How to Turn Off IPv6 in Windows Vista

Let us know how you get on,

regards

Steve

Thank you
I will try this out later tonight Steve, many thanks.

Seems I have a lot to read and learn as a novice - I must have set this up accidently at some point.

I will get back to you.

Regards.
