Hello everybody.

In my seek to solve my problem i've stumble upon your forum, and I hope you guys will be able to help me solve it.


After switching internet provider I've not been able to connect to the internet on my desktop computer. The change in internet provider also meant a change in my router. This is now a Netgear CG3000.

My laptop has no problems what so ever, however it runs through the wireless (I've tried to plug in the network cable into it at and also works fine).

My network adaptor is: Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P).
I've tried to update the drivers on my desktop without any result. I've tried to reinstall the network adapter without any result. And so on.

I hope you can look past my Windows language being Danish.

I look forward to hear you what you might think can solve this problem.

If you go to Control Panel, Network and Sharing, does the graphic show a red X between the Network and the Internet? If so, try clicking on the Internet globe.

As the picture also shows, it does indeed have red X between network and the internet. However when clicking on the Internet globe it just opens my browser, but I'm not able to load any pages.

Try clicking on the red x. My wife's system had the same problem and I clicked on one or the other and it fixed it.

When you open the Network and Sharing, click on Diagnose and Repair. Does that help?

What happens when you right-click the taskbar Network icon and select "Diagnose and Repair" ?

Also in yoiur Device Manager do you have more than one Internet connection listed, if so you need to disable all but your default one.

Often Bluetooth sets up its own network connection for instance, this can confuse the system.

That doesn't help unfortunately.

Diagnose and repair doesn't fix anything, it keeps saying that there is a problem with the connection.

I don't have any other Internet connections listed.

It's a long shot but have you run any7 kind of registry cleaner lately? If so does it have a restore tab?

It could be that the cable between the router and the PC is bad or the connection is bad. If you have more than one cat 5 connection on your PC, you could try the other one.

169.254.xxx.xxx is an autoconfiguration IPv4 address when the host cannot receive a DHCP offer. Can you please temporarily disable any anti-virus and firewall applications and then test connectivity as these could be the cause.

Also can you please boot the machine into safe mode with networking and test connectivity to remove the possibility of a third party application being the cause.

Follow this tutorial - http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/123496-safe-mode.html

Please replace all references of 'Safe Mode' with 'Safe Mode with Networking'


Please post back your results!

I do not mean to hijack this thread in any way possible, my apologies if I have.

You are not hijacking at all! I still haven't found a solution. I will try the safe-mode thing when I'm home later today :)!

I've just tried to boot in Safe Mode with Networking. Still no result, it just says unidentified network. :(

Well I ended up losing my patience, after I've tried practically every solution I've been able to google. So instead I did a format C, and reinstalled Windows - and guess what, now it works!! So good damn weird, fingers crossed it'll keep working :).

I'm glad you managed to get it working. My guess was a conflicting application or file corruption some where... As long as it works I am happy :)
