Windows 7: Windows 7 Server not Found! PLEASE HELP!

Windows 7 Server not Found! PLEASE HELP!

My computer is running a fresh installed Windows 7 premium 64-bit OS, I use a Realtek RTL8191SU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter to connect to the internet. The packaging and product description states it's Windows 7 compatible, but in the last 1 1/2 weeks I've been plagued with problems relating to network connectivity and internet. My current dilemma is that the networking center shows I'm connected to the internet but when I try to load a page the web browser displays "Server not Found." Also when I try to use an internet based program such an MMO it also gives the error message Server not Found also.

( Update ) In addiction, just it showed "No internet access", I troubleshot the problem and windows found no solution. Then the network center showed I had no network connections. 4 mins later it shows I'm connected to the internet again. The "Server not Found" error still persists.

So far I've tried ipconfig/release/renew
ipconfig/flushdns
and OpenDNS

None of them worked...

Hello Raithwal,

If you using any 3rd party utility manager to wireless connect, disable the Wireless Zero Configuration (WZC) for WLAN Auto Config for Vista/7 from Control Panel's Services.
Click on Start and type services.msc press enter then locate WZC or WLAN Auto Config and Disable. Otherwise, the WZC needs to be Started if you're using Windows WZC.

Sorry but it seems I spoke to soon. I went to services.msc and disabled the WLAN while it was still running instead of WZC which I couldn't find in services, I didn't get anymore "server not found" message and the internet connection actually worked well for about 3 hours then got so slow page loads timed out. Now I'm set back again to square one...

No worries, these things can happen and we'll just continue troubleshooting.

Pls. verify that your wireless setting is set to DHCP and that Obtain DNS server address automatically is enabled.

Next thing to do is to remove your wireless software, enable WLAN Auto Config Sevice back, let's see if your windows can handle the WZC.
Connect to your SSID and see if you're able to connect.

If that didn't work then uninstall your Wi-Fi Adapter from Device Manager and reinstall it using the new driver that you may download from the manufacturer's site. Reinstall the wireless software again and make sure to disable the WLAN Auto Config Service.

Pls report your progress.

Why would I go to local area connection? I'm using a Wireless network connection. Both my wireless and local area connection are set to automatically obtain the IP and DNS server and the IP settings say DCHP enabled. But my local area connection is disabled because I'm not able to use a local area connection here.

WZC is another term for WLAN Auto Config in Windows 7 or Vista.
