Windows 7: Internet acces through ethernet but not wireless

28 Nov 2010   #11

windows 7 ultimate 64bit
 
 

and does the computer have a hotkey or key combination to enable/disable wireless? every time i reformat my laptop, wireless is disabled by default. you may want to check that first.

They is set to obtain ip automatically. I tried change to static but with the same result... Im really tired of this shit now, that yellow triangle is freaking me out!

I talked with the the one who owes the laptop now and she told me that internet had been bad before when it was vista on it too. Do you think that it could be the same problem?

Actually it hasn't. The strange thing is that it can find the network and connect to it but it always shown up as unidentified and with limited acces.

really persuade your help!

Actually the triangel i was thinink about was the one that appears in the taskbar. Over the network icon when you got limited access. In device manager however there is a "unknown device" with a yellow triangel also. The error of that one is that it can't get any drivers. I don't know which device it is but its hardware ids are AcpiHidMapper. It hasn't anything to do with my network, or has it?

norton internet security, will test exit it now and test safe mode again...

Do you think that could be it?

EDIT: Can't ping router in safe mode nor with norton closed. Other suggestions?

My connection is that i am directly connected to a gateway btw. I can get the wireless network to work in an ubuntu live cd but not in an installed copy of windows 7! its really strange according to me...
Norton does install network drivers and I have fixed some machines by uninstalling Norton so I reckon it's worth a try just to eliminate it as the cause

Oh. If it is norton that had made this problem i swear i never gonna look at norton agian! Will test it as soon as i get home, is it enough uninstalling or do also have to delete any drivers or similiar?

EDIT: Uninstalling norton unfortunately didn't change anything...

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

Just in case the OP doesn't realize this, the wireless connection will not work as long as the eithernet cable is plugged into the machine, or you can disable the wired connection. That is why it's showing two networks.

Windows will choose the wired connection over the wireless when both are enabled. So to test the wireless you will definately need to unplug or disable the eithernet connection first.

If you want more help please post a screen shot of your ipconfig /all with only the wireless connection enabled.

Actually the reason I was posting that screenshot and ipconfig was to show that the ethernet connection worked. But now I see that it maybe was unnecessary. The problem is that i also get limited acces and unidentified network when I unplugging the ethernet cable. Thanks anyway

Here is the ipconfig /all when using DHCP:

1. 802.11n Wireless LAN Card
2. Realtek RTL8168C(P)/8111C(P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20)

It seems to me that the first one is missing some driver but when i try to update it through th device manager it says that the drivers is up to date. Maybe it is no windows 7 drivers for that card?

change your wireless security on the wifi... most new OSs don't support old router encryption... If you can connect to the wireless without security key in place, it's the router (you will need to flash firmware)... If you can't... then it's your OS/driver.
