I have just reinstalled Wt Home after installing a new motherboard. Only one problem. When I close the PC down and then reboot, I do not get an internet connection.
Looking at 'network and sharing centre' in control panel, it shows me as having a Home network and an 'unidentified' public network, which I have certainly not created. If I then select 'change adapter settings' from the menu on the left, and then 'disable this network device' and then re-enable it again, the phantom 'public network' disappears,the internet connection returns, and all is well, until I switch off again, and the pattern is repeated.
I have gone through the diagnostics with no results, as well as uninstalling the network adapter and letting Windows reinstall it.
Anyone else experienced this, and if so, how is it solved?
Ribo, the problem has indeed been solved and you can find the answer click here
The problem lies with a programme which either Adobe or Apple installs without having the decency to tell you about it. Apart from a smug and unhelpful person called Bubbapcguy, the posts in this thread help to solve the problem.
Thank you very much for your reply. I have altered the Bonjour service to Auto.(delay start). as was suggested elswhere. Did you have to update Bonjour as per the thread you sent me. Did you find that it was the Bonjour seervice that was the problem? I have Photoshop CS3 installed. J
It seems your problem occurred when apple or other service installed a program without your consent. This can actually be avoided by restoring UAC (user account control) on window 7. I know and understand it's annoying how ever you can now regulate this feature to be less annoying but still protect your pc from unwanted soft to install themselves. This will also give some protection against virus that DO indeed install themselves without consent
