Since December, my computer has been unable to connect to the internet. I know the connection is fine because my roommate can get on the internet from his laptop. I've tried all the basic things, but to no avail. I'm to the point now, where restarting my computer back to factory settings is the only thing I can think of to do. And I'm not even sure that will work. If anyone has any ingenious ideas on how to fix my problem, I welcome them all! Like I said, it was working fine a few weeks ago, and then nothing. I've even tried connecting directly into the modem with the same "connected, but no internet access" effect. I've reset the router, unplugged everything and replugged it in, done the whole "netsh....." stuff in the command prompt and restarted the comp. I get the five internet bars in the bottom right corner of the screen with a yellow triangle and a ! in the middle every time I connect to my network. HELP! :(

Go to device manager, uninstall the 2 network cards then restart the laptop. Once it restarts it will automatically reinstall the drivers for the 2 network cards once that's done installing try to connect again if it does not ask you to restart another time.

I'm not too familiar with where everything is on my Windows 7 laptop. Where do I find the device manager?? I feel dumb for asking, but I don't have a clue where to find it, and my search has not found it as of yet...

Thank you both! I really hope this works. The second network card is uninstalling now. I'll let you know if I can connect again after my comp restarts and reinstalls. THANK YOU!

Try this . . with the pc connected to the router,

Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
