"The Default Gateway is not available"

i have reset all my routers and modems and it still keeps happening............ any ideas would be much appreciated!

If you need more info i'll do the best i can!

What network device is installed on the machine, and what driver is being used? I've not had that problem on the 5 or so machines I have running Win7, so this is quite likely a problem with the network driver (if you have installed antivirus software that installs an LSP layer, that could be it too, of course).

Network Adapter is a NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller

And AV is NOD32 64Bit edition

If you uninstall NOD and the problem continues, you will likely have to find a newer network card driver from nVidia (or report the problem to them and Microsoft via the "Send Feedback" links all over the OS) to get it fixed.

nvidia's Network Access Manager is to blame if you have it installed.

I am also getting disconnected. I've disabled my VS, uninstalled it and installed a new one. I've also disabled my firewall. Each time same result. I checked my nvidia n-force networking controller drivers. They are up to date. The problem seems to be triggered by macromedia flash Web sites. Comcast.net videos and Myspace trigger a disconnect within a minute or two and each time with the error "The default gateway is not available." This problem did not exist for me in Vista. Help would be appreciated.

Use "send feedback" to file a bug with Microsoft, and contact nvidia. They've been pretty good with drivers as of late, they may have a fix for you in a beta driver.

Hi,

I am having the exact same problem... using the x86 version of Win7, nVidia nForce network controller

and avast home 4.8 AV

I have tried the latest drivers (official and BETA) and still get the same results... internet cutting out every 5-10 minuits with same error as above.

I don't want to un-install avast as it is the only AV that i have found consistantly effective and the other AV's that are "supported" by Win7 are very buggy resource hogs and basicaly rubbish.

This is rather annoying as it never happend on vista, but i don't want to go back to vista because i really like and am now familliar with Win7

Has anyone fixed this problem?

If so, any help would be great.

thanks

I have since gone back to vista but i did manage to fix it..........

but i used the Beta Drivers.......... but if you say you have tried them then ok

Only other thing is to Get the beta driver and fully uninstall the current drivers then install it fresh

hope this helps

OK

That didn't work....still happening.

I have noticed it is more frequent if i am playing any type of media e.g windows media player (mp3's) or VLC (Xvid's)

However,

I can stream a whole TV show from 4OD or BBCi Player without it cutting out, but very frequent when listening to music.

After trying multiple drivers, I deffinatly think this is a microsoft problem rather than nVidia

Lets just hope they release some sort of fix for nVidia chipsets.

Guess it's my own fault for using a BETA OS as primary

Thanks and any more info then please don't hold back on me, as you can imagine it's very frustrating

Having similar problem here RTL8168B, Avast AV, Win 7 x64

My problem differs a bit though. I leave my computer on 24/7 and the problem often occurs when I've been away for a while. Sometimes it helps turning off all applications that would use the internet connection when i leave, but not always.

Does this happen to be the nForce NIC that is a virtual device? Can those of you who are having problems with this NIC post what the Hardware ID is of the NIC in Device Manager?

I'm suprised that people are still getting this problem as i had it with an early Beta and when all Network Drivers we very early betas aswell

I would have thought by now that between nVidia and Microsoft they would have sorted this.....

Well, it only took nVidia until SP2 to sort their Vista video drivers, let's hope they get better at it with Win7 and network drivers. As to folks with problems still on RTM, let's start making a list of HWIDs that are causing the issues. Look at the properties of the device in device manager, go to the details tab, and click "Hardware Ids" from the list.

Post the device name here, along with the Hardware Id, and we'll start seeing if there's anything in common.

Yeah, proper video drivers for Vista 2 years late -- right in time for Win7 :whistle: Similarly, it seems to be almost only nvidia NICs getting these problems.

As for the reported Realtek, I've had no such issues, with either 8111/8169 or 8168C(P), on several boxes, using the drivers on the disc or from windows update.

This only happens for me during high loads, ie multiple iso's downloading,etc. Standard web browsing and email cause no problems.

So far it looks like the 15.25 Vista x64 Nforce drivers have resolved my problem. I downloaded them and extracted the contents to a folder. Then updated the NIC driver and pointed to the 15.25_nforce_winvista64_international_whql\Ethernet folder.

Before trying this I could easily replicate this error my starting utorrent and copying 5GB of data across the network. So far after 15 mins of testing no failures!

Ok after some more testing it looks like those 64bit Vista drivers did the trick. I've since transfered 65GB across my LAN all while transfering another 10GB via uTorrent. Before these drivers I would get the Gateway not availale message within a couple minutes of transferring across the LAN or via uTorrent.

Here is what have for the driver info now.

Driver c:\windows\system32\drivers\nvmfdx64.sys (1.0.1.6789, 1.43 MB (1,498,016 bytes), 8/1/2008 11:51 AM)

Hope this helps someone else with the same issue.

Problem Solved !!!!!

For all the Windows 7 problems listed above just go to Services and for all network related services select Automatic Start and you will have a stable internet connection after reboot. This has worked on two of my computers that had all the problems above. It is not due to drivers, or Nvidia problems but the services not being installed in Win 7.
