Windows 7: Intel WiFi 4965AGN: limited access

Intel WiFi 4965AGN: limited access

After installing Windows 7 on my computer I can't seem to connect to the internet anymore. There weren't any problems when I had Vista.

Any clues?

I have unchecked the power-thingy on device manager, so that's not it.

Security type: Open
Encryption type: WEP

Please help me!

It's usually a good idea to do so because most of time it will set up your connection during the install.

Well.. a bit late for that now. Works fine with a normal wire, just the wireless that doesn't work.

Any other ideas, anyone?

I actually get the same problem, when connected wirelessly Windows reports "Limited Connectivity". Whereas, via ethernet cable it works fine. I had a problem like this when I first tryed to connect Vista to the internet with WiFi, turns out that I needed new Firmware for the router. I'm not going down that path for Seven so will just bear with.

So, what you're saying is I need a firmware update for my router?

What OS did you use before Seven, XP? It could be the case that the router is not acustomed to the way in which Seven is trying to communicate. I know when I had the problem with Vista, it was due to the way in which the PC and Router communicated; something to do with how long Vista waited for a response before assuming a failed connection, if i remember correctly. Or it could even be the case that your Wireless Network Interface Card needs new drivers...

Drivers for Intel Pro Wireless Card

I had tthe same problem with my Intel Pro Wireless BG2200 card. After trying for several hours, I googled and came across this one..........
HP Intel PRO/Wireless Drivers for Microsoft Vista.

So if you google the above and download the file and install you should be ok. This file also includes drivers for 4965. Give it a try, it may work.
