Windows 7: my computer stopped connecting to my router


22 Mar 2012   #1

Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit
 
 
my computer stopped connecting to my router

My wireless adapter shows that it is connected to my network, but my computer cannot connect to the internet. All other computers can still connect to the internet. It worked fine for almost a year, then one day...no connection.
I use Windows 7, Home Premium, 64-bit; engenius wireless adapter and Linksys router. I tried to change to a TP-Link router, but my adapter (or computer) couldn't find it, so I switched back to the Linksys.
Tried re-installing wireless adapter, linksys, tp-link; re-sets to both routers; uninstalling software, then re-installing;
Any solutions I've missed?

I forgot to include the error message. I don't know what it means:
"Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter."
Hope that helps solve my mystery.

Reinstalling the NIC driver might work as the other suggested. If that doesn't work can you please post a screen shot of your ipconfig/all here for me please.

You just need to type ipconfig/all into an elevated command prompt.
