I am having problems connecting to the internet. Whenever I try to connect to the internet, using wireless or an ethernet cable, my computer says it is connected, often at excellent strength, but then says it can't identify the network!

I've tried connecting to a number of different networks, but all give the same "unidentified network" problem.

It just started doing this yesterday, without me changing any settings.

I've tried fiddling with the firewall and network discovery settings, which don't seem to do anything for the problem, on or off.

Do I need to enable my DHCP? Currently it says it is not enabled.

I have Windows 7 and am not very knowledgeable about computers. Any help would be a lifesaver--I'm a freelance writer and need to be able to get on the net often and easily!

Re: Help!--Can't identify networks, wireless or ethernet!

That's from your router interface, correct? If so, yes enabled it.

Go into the search bar in the start menu, and type in cmd, right-click it and run it as administrator, upon the cmd program type in ipconfig/ all and press enter.

Provide the outputs on your next post.
