Hi bdman32,

Try removing all network profiles, re-add your own SSID (wireless network) with the correct encryption.
Wireless Network - Remove

Make sure that 'Obtain DNS Server address automatically' in your wireless setting is set to auto.

Can you screenshot your network adapters, and also ipconfig /all infos.

bdman32,
That "connected" simply means that you are connected to the router.

I get that quite frequently when when a password is also required.

What do you see if you go to a command prompt and type NSLOOKUP

What type of Security of Firewall Software do you have, completely disable it for now, see if that's the issue.

You might want to post an ipconfig /all output for review.

bdman,
You might want to run ipconfig /alll again but this time type:
IPCONFIG /ALL > ipconfig.txt

Now you have the output of ipconfig /all in a text file and you won't have to worry about info being truncated.
