Windows 7: Windows is stating that I'm not connected to the I-net, when I am.

Windows is stating that I'm not connected to the I-net, when I am.

I'm getting this icon...



I am connected to my wireless network.

I'm using Windows-7 Home Premium x64
I'm using a purchased version of windows 7, I updated my windows-7 few hours ago, restarted, nothing changed.

I wouldn't mind the icon, since I have Internet, but Origin is being b*tch about it, and I cant play games until I fix this.

edit :
Is there a way to force my machine to think that I'm connect to the Internet?

Even if I'm not connected, I don't mind, cause that will solve all my problems.

I'd check your WiFi adapter driver is the latest for W7x64 and ensure the devices properties are set at the optimal values through Device Manager.

Driver scanner is stating that I only have a sound driver out dated, and can you be more specific about ''ensure the devices properties are set at the optimal values through Device Manager''

Hello,

In addition, perhaps uninstalling/reinstalling your Wi-Fi driver might help. Please see this general tutorial for Device Manager. Updating to the new driver would be better.

Another update of your progress will be nice.

Wow thanks alot, I deleted one of my wifi drivers , so I could re-install it later, and now I'm left without any kind of I-net.. Tried downloading some wifi drivers for my laptop model and none of them changed anything..

After you have done a clean install, re-installed all your programs and restored all your files you might want to consider to image your hard drive. You may try DriveImage XML.
