Media Disconnected And Default Gateway Not Available

Dec 28, 2012

I had problems connecting to my wireless internet for extended periods of time with my lease expiring almost instantly. Nobody else in my house had trouble connecting, only me. Troubleshooting the connection only showed that the default gateway was not available and failed to allow me to connect despite "fixing" the problem. I attempted the ipconfig/renew, netsh int ip reset reset.log, and netsh winsock reset catalog operations in cmd as an administrator to no avail. Finally, as a last resort, I reset my modem and that finally allowed me to connect although occasionally I would be kicked off the connection and have to restart the modem again. I would still like to know the problem and a possible solution since my friends seem to have a similar problem with their wireless internet.

ipconfig/all before resetting the modem:

No Connections Available Media Disconnected

Jan 1, 2013

My dad just had to send his Acer Aspire back to the manufacturer to get the fan replaced. It came back factory reset and would not connect to any internet wired or otherwise. He called me and I asked him to bring it over. I can get it to connect to via Ethernet at my house, however, wireless is a no go. The status bar goes between "no connection available" to showing my network with two bars. When I attempt to connect to my network I get the standard "Window was unable to connect to this network". I currently have another PC, a PS3, a smart phone, and a tablet all connected with no problem (and all at full bars), so I know it's not the router. I ran an ipconfig /all and this is what I got: [code] One thing I did notice is that my IP Routing Enabled was set to NO and when I looked at how to fix that it said to update a registry key.

Media Disconnected In Desktop

Jan 27, 2011

I am having problems with my internet connection through my desktop but my laptops are still working. From searching this site it appears to be a media disconnected error.

Can somebody attach a link if this has already been coverered (I am sure it has but I just can't find it). I have a Compaq computer running Vista Service Pack 2.

Media Disconnected On Vista?

Feb 5, 2013

I have just upgraded a laptop to vista, I didn't have any internet connection until I used a dongle to connect, after connection, it downloaded drivers to computer. Wireless now works without the dongle. I have no wired connection as it says "Media Disconnected." If I look in device manager, everything is working fine. I have looked on the net & tried a lot of checking various things but still no connection on lan. This is on an old laptop a advent 7109A. It was working fine on all connections until I upgraded.

Ipconfig Says Media Disconnected?

Dec 16, 2012

when i open up my network connections tab, i see two icons: "Wireless network Connection" and "Local Area Connection"

It clearly says a cable is unplugged, but no cable is unplugged and i am 100% sure of that.

when i type "ipconfig" into command prompt, i see all these things that say "tunnel adapter Local area connection" and it says media disconnected.

how would i go about "Connecting" the media? i am concerned about this issue so much because, even though i can connect to the internet (ip: i cannot connect to my printer (ip: and when i tracert the printers ip it says "media disconnected" so i know the two errors correlate to one another.

Media Disconnected Message In Ipconfig?

May 8, 2012

I know there was an old thread with a similar problem, but that thread is closed and the answers didn't work for me. i am using an HP compaq 8710p, with windows xp. I moved to a new house so am using a new wireless for the first time. My laptop detects the wireless (and other wireless connections nearby) but will not connect. My iphone is connected to the wireless, and the wired connection to my laptop is fine. So the problem is my laptop.When I try to renew ip this is the message I get;

Static IP On Device With Disconnected Media

Jun 21, 2011

I need to set a Windows 7 machine up as a static address and do an arp -s to a blocked router to send it a fresh firmware.Setting a static address that I could ping was never a problem in Windows XP, but for some reason Windows 7 have decided to be very passive about assigning a static IP until it gets an active connection.With an active connection there is no connection problems, but with a passive (where there is no response) I get a "Media disconnected" from ipconfig and the adapter don't get an IP assigned.I need to tell Windows not to try verify the connection, but just assign the static IP as before. I believe I somehow have to disable autoconfiguration for that network device, since assigning the static IP alone doesn't seem to do it. Turning off the DHCP Client alone doesn't do it either and shouldn't really be needed. get an IP assigned to the interface (and ignore the "Media connected" part)?

Media Disconnected With Wired Router Connection

Oct 8, 2011

I have a US Robotics 5462 router and a D-Link DCM-202 cable modem on Comcast. I've had this router for years and initially configured it for wireless access using a Windows XP system (this router requires you to configure it via Ethernet and That computer stopped working last year, so I got a new computer running Windows 7.When I first got this new PC, I could not connect to my router via Ethernet (just like I can't now), but I was still able to connect to the wireless network I had previously set up, so I was satisfied.

A year went by, and last week I was suddenly unable to access my wireless network, so I did a factory reset on the router, erasing my previously configured wireless network and requiring me to connect the router to my computer via Ethernet to reconfigure the router. I tried to do this, but despite all of the correct LEDs being lit on the router, I could not access A little poking around on my control panel revealed that my LAN was being labeled as an "Unidentified Network" and there was "No Internet Access." I tried to make it a private network, but that didn't fix the issue.

I searched around for a while and read some advice to try running ipconfig. When I did that, I saw "Media Disconnected" for my LAN adapter. I've tried a few of the possible solutions already with no luck. With the same computer and the same Ethernet cable directly connected to my modem instead of through the router, I *CAN* get online. That's how I'm connected right now. Also, I have no problem accessing any wi-fi networks.

Dell :: N 6230 - XPS 13 (Windows 8 Pro Media Disconnected)

Jan 19, 2013

I have 2 laptops, only one of which connects to the Internet. The second, a Dell XPS, no longer connects to the Internet/network. Recently I updated the driver for the wireless adapter, Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230; however I later learned that there is a compatibility issue for 6230 and Windows 8. So, I rolled back the driver for the wireless network adapter, both to an Intel-provided legacy driver and to the Dell-provided driver. However, using either driver, the my computer won't connect. Running ipconfig states the Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi: Media State... Media Disconnected.

Dell Tech support regarded this a sensitive issue, which would require purchasing a new, premium software warranty.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - No Internet Access For 2nd PC / Media Disconnected

Apr 16, 2013

I will be working from home half the time and am trying to get set up. So here it goes:
Took PC #1 home and hooked everything up. Could access Internet.Had to bring PC #2 home because #1 didn’t have the programs I needed.Hooked #2 up, no internet access.Tried different network cable – no access.Tried different router port – no access. (router port light doesn’t illuminate, neither does port on PC)My personal PC that uses the same router has internet access.Hooked #1 back up as a test – could access internet.Hooked up #2 again, did a Run, cmd, ipconfig and got “media disconnected”I brought #2 back in for a PC tech to look at. He hooked it up in his office, had internet access.Took it back home and hooked everything up.The port lights illuminated on startup; but after it got to the desktop, lights are off.Tried ipconfig again, "media disconnected”. IP address doesn’t display.
All the while I have internet access on my own PC, plus when I hook up #1 to the same port using the same cable, I have internet access, which led me to believe it's something wrong with PC #2.Tech is saying it’s a problem with my router (Cisco E2500), which I restarted too.

Default Gateway Not Available

May 3, 2012

Periodically, I drop internet everywhere around my college's campus. I'm literally four feet from a router, but it doesn't seem to matter. I'll disconnect, run troubleshooter, and I'll get the error message saying that the default gateway is not available. My college is designed for Macs, but I'm running Windows 7. My Mac colleagues do not experience problems. The computer works at home and at nearly every other wireless network I've brought it in range of. Specifically, either IBM or Dell.

I recently got a new laptop and ever since, the internet goes in and out.

I tried manually setting the connection information but the same thing keeps happening except the troubleshooter then says that DHCP is not enabled.

I have little knowledge of computers but I'm not sure that what my ipconfig is showing is supposed to be there. At first I googled and learned about ipv6 addresses because i found that weird but i think that checks out fine. I then googled about the weird numbers and letters in my default gateway and came up empty. Is there a reason thats there?
