Thank you, thank you. This fixed my issue. Took me a while to realize it was hamachi that was causing the problem as I had been using hamachi for years with no issues. Wasn't until we installed an Alpha AWUS036NH long range wifi adapter that I started having problems. THen once we realized hamachi, we couldn't figure out how to fix other than turn off hamachi. of course that's not acceptable since we need hamachi for me to connect to my work machines from home.
i sure appreciate you posting this fix....
Yeah that's what happened to me. I installed Hamachi and didn't reboot my Win 8 machine for quite a few days. Once I did, the issue kicked in. Immediately I was reversing changes I had made that day. LOL
I contacted Hamachi support. Here is the response I got:
(I haven't tried this method yet but it seems like it might work.)
I hope this helps all of you. This is so aggravating!
Thank you for contacting LogMeIn.
After installing Hamachi you may encounter connectivity issues due to connection Metrics. Windows uses Metrics to determine the order it will attempt to acquire internet access. The Hamachi adapter may be auto assigned a lower Metric than the adapter that provides your internet connection. You will need to manually assign the Metric to resolve.
To manually assign a Metric:Windows XP
Performing the above steps will assign Hamachi a very high metric, making it the very last thing Windows use to attempt an internet connection. If that does not resolve it, perform the same steps on the adapter you want your internet connection to be on, but assign it a 100 metric.

------ MY Question/Comment ------
Hi, [OS WIN-7] Whenever I attempt to connect to the internet (loading a webpage or running Skype or similar) they will not load. This is surely due to the Hamachi Network "Unidentified Network" that shows up on my computer at startup. I'm glad this is here when I need to use LogMeIn Hamachi, but when I am not using it, it is a real pain to have to go into the Network and Sharing Center and disable it. I have checked your forums but nothing has helped me thus far. Unidentified network still shows up in my list of networks.
If this can't fix, I'd rather just stop Hamachi from auto-running at startup. I have tried many methods to do this, none of which have worked. Please e-mail reply or call me if you have any questions.
Everyone to fix this go to your task manager.
Then go to services and click services at the bottom right.
After that stop the following things.
Logitech Bluetooth Service
Logmein Hamachi Tunelling Engine
And thats it. The most important one is the Tunneling Engine you may be ok with only disableing that.
I've had the same problem in the past. Can you connect using any other devices? What could be hapenning is something called Local Bridging. If you cannot connect using other devices, it is most likely the case.
Local Bridging is where your computer tells the router and Hamachi to make a little product called a Network Bridge. Local bridging is where this bridge tells the router that it is limited only to the bounds of the Local Network and it's connected Counterpart, the Hamachi Direct Tunnel - HDT.
Some computers do this on accident as a way of connecting itself using the router to the peer.
In my case, I was bridging a 1000Mb/s connection to a 130Mb/s connection but I was also disabling net access. The way I worked around it was simply disconnecting the bridge and losing that fake Gigabit internet speed.
Anyway, hope you can diagnose it using the clues we've provided.
