    whenever i make a change to the tcp/ip settings in control panel (change dns, change ip), after clicking OK, my LAN connection turns to unidentified network. even after i change back to the default settings, i still can't back the connection. this not only happen when i change settings on the tcp/ip, after i install antivirus, vmware, i get yellow excalamation mark on the network icon in taskbar means no internet access. it seems that whatever changed made to the network,internet settings, it blocked the connections. how to get the connection back?

    It might be wise to refrain from making changes to your settings that cause you to lose connectivity.
