Exclamation Internet Connection constantly identifying
I recently bought a Samsung R530 which uses Windows 7 operating system. However, when I connect to the internet the status remains on Limited internet access and when I open network management the Map shows the status stuck on identifying. The internet connection icon in the bottom corner shows the yellow exclamation mark and again reads 'limited access' when the cursor is hovered over it. I have tried troubleshooting the problem but nothing is displaying. Can anyone help becuase I have some university assignments that really need to be getting dealt with ASAP haha thank you

would you do the following

------------------------------------------------------------------------
{Device Manager}
Post back the results in device manager
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC
Start > control Panel {Vista set to classic view}> system > {Vista, device manager on left hand side} {XP hardware Tab, device manager button} >
windows 7
start > control panel> System and Security> Device Manager

network adaptors, click on the + > post back the devices listed there
are there any ! ? or X


post a screen shot of the device manager - network adapters

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.

{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Then run the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list
