Windows 7: Internet wireless connection: "Limited Connectivity" in one machine!

08 Nov 2011   #1

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1
Internet wireless connection: "Limited Connectivity" in one machine!


I've been checkin some info in other places but the problem appears to be resistant to solutions

After scanning and removing some viruses, I found myself without wireless internet connection. I suppose some configuration was changed by the virus but I can't find out what it was to restore to default. There are 2 other PC linked wirelessly to the same router and this is the only one with the issue.

I tried ipconfig/renew failed, ping xxxxxxxx General Failure, netsh int ip reset reset.log and netsh winsock reset catalog after reboot no luck...

Help would be apreciated, I can post the result of ipconfig/all if you need it

Thanks in advance!

Just to confirm,
The command is ipconfig /release & ipconfig /renew
There is a space between ipconfig and /
If you've already tried it, then looks like the viruses must have corrupted the winsock catalog.
