    Hi, i have recently made hardware changes to one of my computer. the build now looks like this:
    AMD - x2-7750 black edition
    Mobo - M3N78-VM

    I formatted the drive and a fresh install of windows 7. When the computer starts up for the first time, all the drivers install properly but in the bottom left, i have a message saying: unidentified network - no network access.

    I have searched around online for possible solutions and here is what i have done so far:
    - uninstall network driver and restart computer
    - made sure my internet protocol V4 is set to obtain ip automatically
    - reinstall windows 7
    - installing drivers for m3n78-vm manually

    I have 4 computers on this router, none of which needs the network connection to be set up with setup wizard. This computer wont connect though. I'm all out of ideas as to why.

    I can see that i don't have a default gateway. When i try to make changes to internet protocol of ipv4 ( i choose an ip with the same first 6 digits as the other computers in my house and setting the gateway to the same one as the others). When i do this, it freezes and says (not responding)
