Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit "limited access" Wireless Network Connection

I just did a clean install on my windows 7 ultimate 32 bit computer to 64 bit. At first, my wireless internet was working fine, but it suddenly dropped to "limited access". I'm using a Linksys WUSB100 ver. 2 wireless network USB adapter. I've already tried downloading the latest driver for windows 7 64 bit, 3.0.3.0 from the Linksys website. I've also tried restarting my computer and the wireless modem. I did a system restore to the point where it was last working but it still isn't working. I can't think of anything else to do, please help.

Is it a good idea to diable IPv6? I know most sites dont use it... yet, but why did you disable it?

It's not required that you disable IPv6, doing that hardly ever solves any problems. Ipv6 is only used for the Homegroup network which is used only on the LAN.

I'm not sure why anyone would think that using a static IP would solve a wireless connection problem so I don't think that is the solution. This is most likely a driver or a wireless modem-router problem.

I didn't know. I wanted to try disabling it and see if it improves my internet speed.

Unfortunately, it didn't.
