    I'm running Windows 7 and have seen other posts on this, but none of the resolutions seem to work for me. I'm unable to connect to the internet - my desktop can view other computers on the network, but the internet is still screwed up. Under active networks it sees my work network, and then one named "Unidentified network." Tech support will fix it, but then upon restart, it goes right back to being disabled.

    I've done route delete 0.0.0.0, disabled and troubleshooted the adapter, updated my drivers, disabling the firewall, and there's no bonjour to be found. I'm running out of ideas here - any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Go to another machine and start the command prompt. Then type "ipconfig". Copy down the two DNS server address and put that in your ipv4 properties. Usually when internet doesn't work it is due to unavailable DNS.

    try also using netsh to reset the tcp/ip stack. into command line, type : netsh int ip reset reset.log and hit enter. then use the following commands and hit enter after each one, then reboot when you're done: ipconfig /release; ipconfig /renew ; ipconfig /flushdns ; ipconfig /registerdns ; netsh winsock reset ; netsh dump ; nbtstat -R
    this will releaase and renew the ip address, flush the dns cache, re-register the dns server,resets the winsock, and i forgot the other two. i use this as a batch file at work, if that doesn't do it, then ask tech support to explain exactly what they did different next time.

    Thanks so much for the help, guys!!! Turns out that Bonjour was somehow hidden and we were able to find it and disable it. Damn Apple. Ugh.
