Hi, I have my ADSL router, my PC works fine with it (Win7 x64) as its connected all the time via RJ45.

A netbook (Win7 Starter) just works when the cable is stabbed into it.
Using the same cable, same time etc ... my laptop (Win7 x32) does not want to work. It says "connected to unidentified network".

When it is via WIFI it works without a problem.

The main computer - the PC connected to router via RJ45 has deemed the network as a "office network".

Try this:
Shut it down.
Remove the charger.
Remove the battery.
Hold the start button down for a few seconds.
Replace the battery & boot.

This has worked on several occasions, give it a try.

That didn't work but I uninstalled the driver and rebooted which worked :D Dang Windows. Couldn't do a driver rollback, probably because I was using the first one already :p
