Windows 7 - No internet connectivity
Laptop is connected by wireless to a working router however there is no internet connectivity on the Windows 7 laptop.
Tried a system restore, tried rolling back drivers, verified IP configuration and such. Nothing.
Any ideas? This has been the first thing that has really wound me up in a while.

can you ping the router, ping google.co.uk, no proxy settings on?

I had the same issue with an asus laptop/mb using win7 drivers. I downgraded the drivers to vista ones worked first time

I get this all the time on my Windows7 box - on boot up I have to disable the nic and then re-enable - made a script for it in the end - can't be bothered to find the proper fix. [ Can't be bothered in regards to anything IT related at all lately ]

If you plug it in via Ethernet does it work? If yes, it would point to a wireless driver issue. I remember someone posted on here not long ago with a Windows 7 issue on 64bit. Updating the wireless drivers did resolve the problem. It's nice to know OEMs test things isn't it?

Is it a telco provided router - I've got a sky one and it's naff and does a few different things including this. The lights are on, but no ones at home......

No it's my own Linksys router.
Tried disabling the network card and enable it again, and also the connection. No resolution.
Will try updating the driver tomorrow when I have more patience.
Haven't tried ethernet connection. Will do that also tomorrow.

I'm still using a Linksys - WRT54GS on Firmware Version: v1.52.2 [ If its of any use ]

Any update on this latest quiz?

Yes. Bonus points for anyone who can guess the fix.

I still think wireless driver update

Its usually to do with powersaving modes, switch these off both in windows and in the devices power managment tab then see how it goes.

I will try turning off the power saving mode as I have the same problem, its a nighmare, the only thing I have noticed is that it creates an unknown network so I have to disable and re-enable the NIC and its fine. Every boot up pretty much.
Thanks for that anyway.

If you'd have said switch off the router then this hammer damaged Windows 7 laptop would have been yours.

It didn't work after changing the power management settings. Not sure what to try now.
