Windows 7: Unable to connect to wireless networks

I've been using ccleaner for years, and was one of the first things I installed when I got my laptop. Doing the above hasn't helped a jot, I'm afraid. Anything new for me?

What is the make and model number of your router.

There is no router, it's BT Openzone I'm trying to connect to. I'm on a military base and BT have provided it across camp. I have no porblems connecting on my pc, and my old laptop worked perfectly fine before I bought this one. The weird thing is, I can connect to some networks, such as at my girlfriend's house, but not others. I'm at a total loss.

My network adapter is an Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6230

Try entering the following numbers in the ipv4 setting page you mentioned earlier. Keep a note of originals in case it fails.

It's ok, I finally solved the problem. My laptop wasn't set to automatically gather DNS addresses. After changing this, it can now detect, connet to and stay connected to wireless networks.

Thanks for all your help!
