    I have a similar problem. Got a new router from EE as supposed to improve WiFi connection but it didn't. I was told to delete the card and reboot which I did - result i can connect to the router but not the internet.
    i'm running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspiron 1564 and have the latest driver.

    Two things I have noticed: In Network and Sharing the Network is "Unidentified" and "Public" and I can't change it. When I type IPCONFIG/ALL I have thehave the "Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address" but there is nothing for the "Default Gateway". Could either or both of these be the problem? If so how do I fix them?

    Many thanks in advance.

    I started your own thread for you here.

    I understand that you cannot connect to your new wireless network. How about an ethernet connection?

    Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

    Identify your network.

    Also show ...

    Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
    Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

    Type the following command:


    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

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

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
