    Like many people in this forum I have trouble in Windows getting a working internet connection (three wifi bars, with a yellow exclamation mark).
    I had a Realtek RTL8188CU usb wireless adapter which had issues. After trying almost every solution on the internet, I bought a different USB Adapter, a Sitecom WLA-2102 with the latest drivers. Same problem.

    I have reinstalled Windows 7 multiple times, and also Windows 8. Now I'm back at Windows 7.
    My Windows 7 workstation is the only device that does not get connected to the internet. There is a XP laptop I am on right now, several mobile phones/tablets and a Macbook. All work without any problem or configuration needed.

    I reset my router multiple times, tried different firmwares, turning off ipv6, disabled firewall, no antivirus...

    Right now I have disabled my Firewall and removed ESET Nod32, which came with the Windows 7 installation.

    Below is my ipconfig /all from the PC that is not working, below that is the XP laptop that is working. The PC is in Dutch, I hope that's not a problem.
    In my router, a Zyxel P2812HNUF1, I can see my PC is connected). But from the PC I can not access the router (through ping or on the web interface)

    Thanks in advance...

    Can you get internet access via ethernet?

    Run the ESET Uninstaller if you haven't already.

    What other firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the system?
