Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
On this short demonstration, I would like to present, how to fix the network connection problem in windows 7. As we know, many Windows 7 users are facing Network connection problem like;
"unidentified network" or "no internet access"
I don't mean this will work for all the users, but most users will definitely get benefit from this. There might be other fixes too, but I am only presenting the most common and the simplest method.
Before we begin, please disable the Internet Protocol Version 6"ipv6" (what we commonly use is Internet protocol version 4 "Ipv4") from your "Local Area Network Properties" if you don't need it (this is not totally implemented for home users, if you are sure you need it, no problem just leave it as it was). To do this, click on the "Local Area Network Status" click "Properties" and from the list below the "General" tab, uncheck (remove the tick mark) from the "Internet Protocol (Tcp/Ipv6)" or something like that, and click "Ok" and close it.
Also enable "dhcp" services, if otherwise you'll need to provide a static ip address, type in the ip address which was given by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) on the IP address box. This depends on the service provider from whom you get your connection. When you are done, click "Apply" and then "ok".
Now, let's proceed simply like this.
Start -> Run (in the text box)-> and type in "msconfig" (without qoutes)
The System Configuration Utility window will pop up, now click on the "Services" tab and from the services lists, locate "Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B87 9762", and disable it. (Remove the tick mark on the left hand side of the above mentioned "Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B87 9762" )
Click "Apply" and then "Ok". You'll need to restart your system for the changes to take effect.
Optional; You can also go to the "services" directly by typing "services.msc" in the run box. The only difference is that, you'll need to right click on the "Id_String2.6844F930_1628_4223_B5CC_5BB94B87 9762", sand select "disable" or "Stop". Restart your computer or you can try disabling and enabling the Network Adaptor. Now check your internet connection by dialing using your username and password or try connecting to the ISP.
If unfortunate, this doesn't work for you, you can also try the following methods;
Open the Network Adaptor Properties, click on the "configure" and then again "Advanced" and on the left pane, click "flow control" you'll see the value (which is set) on the right hand side of the dialog box, change the value to "rx & tx" (when you click over the value box, a drop down list will be displayed, select rx&tx from the list and click ok). Sometimes even small trick fixes the problem.
If anyone has come across this similar problem and have solved using another method, it'd be very much appreciated if he/she can add them as comments. Good luck to you all.

If your Windows PC has is equipped with an Ethernet port, you can
connect your PC and Macintosh using an Ethernet cable. By doing this,
you are creating a small local network, consisting of just the two
computers. Set up your Windows PC by turning on File Sharing. Refer to
the instructions that came with your Windows PC if you're not sure how
to do this.
To locate and connect to the Windows
computer, you can use the sidebar in a Finder window. You need to know
the workgroup name for the computer and the network name (called the
"computer name") for the computer. To connect to the computer, you also
need a user name and password and the name of the shared folder you want
to access. If you don't have this information, contact the person who
owns the computer or your network administrator.
If you cannot locate the Windows
computer in the Network browser, you may be able to connect to it using
the Connect To Server dialog in the Finder.
Make sure the Internet Connection
Firewall is turned off, or if it's on make sure TCP port 445 is open to
allow sharing connections.
To connect you Mac and Windows computers:
In the Finder, choose Go > "Connect to Server."
Type the network address for the computer in the Server Address text box using one of these formats:
Follow the onscreen instructions to type the workgroup name and a user
name and password, and choose the shared folder you want to access.
