Okay so i have a computer that refuses to access the internet/local network. It just says Unidentified Public Network (which its not) Other computers work fine ive tried taking it to a completely different network and tried using a wireless card. No dice. Ive tried all the "netsh" commands, all the ipconfig commands. setting the network adapter address manually in the advanced configuration of the network card. its an IBM all in one thinkcentre a70z and a realtek PCIe GBE adapter. oh i also tried the route delete 0.0.0.0 but it says it cant do it. ive tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it from the website as well as allowing windows 7 to install in manually. ive tried to assign it a static ip. This is driving me crazy. Its not pulling an ip address from the dhcp and ive manually added the gateway address. any suggestions before i chuck this thing out of the window?

Try going into properties for the network adapter and removing the check from IPv6. Press Okay, then try to DHCP an address. You may need to do an "ipconfig /release" then "ipconfig /renew" from the command prompt.

I've seen many cases where a Windows 7 PC was having network problems with IPv6 enabled.

Depending on your ISP, you may have to call them and ask for a RESET from their end, after that, reboot and try again.

So if you set the address manually, can you ping the gateway of that network? This happens wireless and wired correct?

Have you tried removing the auto-negotiation link speed in advanced device properties? Have you tried disabling the wireless adapter and just using wired in safe mode with networking?
