Windows 7 Fix 0.0.0.0 Default Gateway Issue

By Shay Anderson on February 2011
If default gateway is set to 0.0.0.0 (check with cmd > ipconfig /all) this needs to be removed by:
  1. Run cmd.exe as Administrator
  2. At command type this command:
    route delete 0.0.0.0and hit enter
  3. Then type:
    ipconfig /releaseand hit enter, then type:
    ipconfig /renewand hit enter
This will remove 0.0.0.0 as the default gateway (or read Microsoft KB Article). It is possible the Adobe Bonjour service is causing this problem if Adobe Software is installed on Windows 7 OS, to fix this problem stop the Bonjour service from running:
  1. Run msconfig
  2. Click on "Services" tab and find an entry like "##Id_String1.6844F930[...]" (this is what it was on my machine - manufacturer should be "Apple Computer, Inc.")
  3. Uncheck the box next to the entry to disable the service from starting
