    i have moved to a thread of your own in networking forum

    all those tests are showing a good connection to the internet

    do other devices connect to your wireless OK

    What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Remove the wireless security
    Is your wireless security enabled?
    if so - log into the router and remove the wireless security - now see if it will connect.
    if it does - log back into the router and try with the wireless security enabled again

    Mcafee is the running antivirus. I found when I turned ON the Bluetooth module that the computer could connect to the internet but only sporadically. Also, all other devices can connect to the internet via wireless. I even turned off the firewall (via Mcafee) to see if that might help.

    do you have a full paid subscription to mcafee
    remove mcafee and see if that resolves the connection issue


    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Mcafee Removal Tool
    http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS101331

    http://majorgeeks.com/McAfee_Consumer_Product_Removal_Tool_d5420.html

    After removing the mcafee product - if you have a subscription and would like to re-install mcafee
