I know this question is all over the internet, but I have not been able to get any resolution. I just bought a Netgear N600 router and went about setting it up. I used my Windows 7 machine to go through the process with minimal difficulty, except for a brief period in which it exhibited the Unidentified Network, but I think that it was because the router was trying to assign an IP address that was already in use. Can anyone verify that that is a possibility? Anyway I continued the setup and went to connect wirelessly on a Vista machine and it too displayed the unidentified network without internet connectivity. I have tried, I think, everything that has been mentioned to fix this issue without result. I have reset the router, modem, and restarted the computer. I have manually assigned an IP address to the computer, I have manually assigned a MAC address to the computer, I have disabled and/or uninstalled the wireless adapter multiple times, and I have tried simple ipconfig /release and /renew. I have asked others what the problem might be and someone told me that there is an issue with the internet signal coming from the modem. He said that the router and or the wireless adaptor are picking up on these drops in internet connection which is making them disconnect and not reconnect to the internet, and said it is something that Vista does. Can anyone verify this?
Does anyone have any idea what I can do to resolve this once and for all?
