    Windows 7: stuck while identifying LAN status

    I have installed window 7 on my computer. Well I am facing very strange problem and I wanted to discuss with all of you. I am trying to connect my computer with LAN. It works fine while I am using internet. But I am facing problem when I open Network and Sharing Center and click on View your active networks it prompts that ‘Identifying...’ and no network names appear on the screen. Do you know why this happening is? And also I wanted to know any solution to heal this problem. Your feedback will be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    I think you have provided very less details about your problem. It will be great if you could answer the following question. Well what kind of connection you are connected with? Well I mean to say that whether you are using wired connection or Wireless connection. Also I want to know how IP address is assigned, whether IP address is assigned manually or automatically. Answer the above mentioned question so I can suggest you to plan further trouble shooting steps to solve your problem. I am waiting for your prompt reply. Thanks a lot for reading my post.

    Well I am providing some basic trouble shooting which you can use to solve the problem. You have to turn off firewall if it is on your system. After Turning off firewall check whether the problem exist or not. Also check whether IP conflict is occurring or not. Make sure that Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol should be enabled on both computer and router. I hope above mentioned troubleshooting steps will help you to solve the problem.
