    Unidentified Network


    Hi everybody,
    I bough 5 days ago new HP Pavilion 500, it is using Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabith Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30).

    ISSUE: Every time the PC boots up there is no internet connection - yellow triangle with exclamation point - unidentified network - limitted connection.
    Windows 8.1 is up to date. Drivers has been updated, reinstalled, uninstalled. Didn't help. System wen't through factory restore. Didn't help.
    Router has been reset to factory setings - other PC, Macs tablets etc works with no problems so not a network issue. Cabe has been changed for another one.
    When I run the windows diagnostics in network connections, what windows does resets the netowrk adapter and everytings is suddenly up and runing.
    Do you have a clue - see bellow ipconfig when network is down and when netowrk is restored.

    It looks like you are already running the latest driver for the Atheros AR8161 which is the NDIS 6.30 > Microsoft Update Catalog

    When the connection is down I'm seeing the typical > Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.254.28.196(Preferred) Which basically means it's seeing the router but is having a problem staying connected to it. Many changes in the network stack and how DNS is acquired so firmware updates are typically required here.

    Which make/model router are you using for this connection?

    DSL Modem from Telus is Zyxel VSG1432 firmware is up to date. Even HP Support can't wrap their heads around it.

    You might considering putting this modem/router into bridge mode which will bypass the router part of this modem/router allowing you to use a different router for testing. I've seen this same complaint with HP replacing the entire motherboard to no avail, so trying a different router would be my first course of action.

    It also proves nothing when one completely different machine can connect while this one can't. There have been many changes to the network stack and how DNS is acquired which will cause problems with certain routers.

    The link below explains how to set the router to use ADSL and how to put it into bridge mode.
