    Hi I just upgraded from Vista to Windows 7 Home premium and I cannot get an internet connection. It will connect to my wireless network but not the internet.

    Please help. Thank you

    At a minimum download and install your chipset (first) and networking drivers. If HP does not have Windows 7 drivers for your machine use the Vista ones.

    Use a different computer (maybe the one you used to post here?) and copy the files using removable media, such as a floppy, CD, USB flash drive or external hard drive.

    Since it connects to your wireless network,
    Its not a windows problem.

    Follow the below instructions Carefully:
    1. Download HiJackThis from the link in my signature
    2. Run a Scan.
    3. Save a Logfile(On your Desktop)
    4. DO NOT FIX ANYTHING BY YOURSELF.
    (Fixing Anything Might cause Unwanted System Instability,BSOD's and Even Render your System Unusable)
    5.Copy and Paste all the contents
    6. Paste them in the reply Window
