Please help - another "Identifying network" loop Tags: Configuration Windows 7 Last response: December 10, 2012 3:41 PM in Windows 7 Share 2_cheap December 10, 2012 2:04:18 PM All - I have a win 7 home edition that is caught in the "identifying network" endless loop. All of this was set in motion by some adobe update. I have tried to do some reading on the subject, but I definitely need some help. I do not have any anti-virus running. I have windows firewall turned off. I cannot run ipconfig/reset - the computer gives me an error. I can force a static IP, but from what I read, that won't solve this specific issue, since I cannot see the DNS servers at all. I set the MTU to 1468, so I am guessing that is not the issue. Cable is good / changed routers also, just for fun / other wired computer works / wireless laptop and wireless tablets works - so the problem is definitely in win 7 itself. I cannot do a system restore, as I think I do not have sufficient cache allocated presently. I have performed the "netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt" - this does not remedy the situation. I have not yet tried to get a driver and reload it, but I have disabled / enabled the network adapter several times... What should be my next steps? Thanks!

Otherwise not running any anti-virus might be the start of the problem. 2_cheap December 10, 2012 3:21:24 PM I followed some instructions to load the task bar, etc. to overcome the limited loading due to the RPC server error. I am not running any antivirus that I know of... The RPC server error is keeping me from running ipconfig/reset. Also - I have run a flush - that did not help either.... Can't find your answer ?
