I have a static IP Connection and I have recently downloaded windows 8 Release Preview. I am having the problem with the Gateway which the Network Adapter Troubleshooter has reported of "Default Gateway not available." Previously I had windows XP (from which I had upgraded to W.8) in which it worked very well. But in Windows 8 even the ISP isn't recognized. I my windows 7 computer it works very well as usual. Please anyone help me with these matters. Thanks a million to people giving answers!
