Win 7 see my network as Unidentified network

Specs: Windows 7

Every so often my computer (Windows 7 ultimate) sees the network I'm on as "unidentified network" while still showing my usual network and tells me that both don't have internet accesses , while I know that my normal network does. Strangely this happens when I start up and if I restart it the other network goes away

can you please help me

Are you using wireless? You may be picking up an unsecured nearby wireless router.

A LAN is a Local Area Network. Can be wired or wireless. I assume you meant your connection is wired?

Do you have wireless capability on that computer?

Has that computer ever been part of a different LAN?

Your network adapter may be installed more than once.

Boot into safe mode and check. Could be two different but similar names for the same adapter. Or you could have more than one network adapter and that is causing the false readings.

Virtually all modern motherboard have at least one integrated network adapter. Some have two. Do you also have an add in network card?

Also, Windows 7 has a feature that allows easier sharing of files with other Windows 7 computers. Might be something to do with that.

The solution may be to redo the LAN settings.

How many other computers are connected to your LAN and what OSes are in use?
