    Hi. this site had a post of a similar problem, but the suggestion did not fix my problem. So, I thought I might post my problem specifically and see if anyone has any suggestions.
    I have 2 different laptops. both running Windows7 and connecting to the internet wirelessly. within a few days of each other they both began to display "Currently connected to: Unidentified network No network access" and they will not let me get on the internet. It is not my router becuase It shows the same thing no matter where I try to connect. I have tried my gym and a local restaurant that I have always had success connecting to before. Furthermore my WindowsXP desktop is directly connected and is connecting to the internet without any problems. My laptops are both running AVG for antivirus. Any ideas?

    If you are having Internet connection problems related to "Unidentified Network" showing and the "!" over your NIC icon, then this should take care of it:


    Check to see if you have this little devil in your services list:

    "##Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B87 9762 ##"

    If you do, stop it and disable it. It is actually the Bonjour DNS Responder Service, and I believe it is the cause of the "Unidentified Network."

    The Unidentified Network will disappear after stopping this service and a quick disable/enable of the NIC, restoring Internet access.

    Hi and Thank you so much for your help.
    Unfortunately, I had already tried that.
    I do not see anything beginning with ## or Id_ in my services list.
    I did however see Bonjour Service in my services list and I disabled it, then restarted my machine, but that did not help the problem. Do you have any other ideas?

    Open up the command line utility and enter:
    >netsh winsock reset catalog and hit enter
    and then
    >netsh int ip reset reset.log and hit enter
    --reboot the PC

    I have finally solved it. I feel so silly! I had to touch the button on the laptop to turn back on the wireless. I guess that I accidentally touched it at some point. Hope this solution saves someone else some time.
