Windows 7: No Internet Access message when Internet is available

Windows 7
No Internet Access message when Internet is available

This is a problem that has probably been solved but I have spent some time looking for the solution without success.
Windows 7 (6.1.7100 build 7100) indicates that I have no Internet connection in spite of the fact that I can browse without any problems (see attached image).
Mostly this is not a problem except that I want to connect to an external server to upload files. Normally I use map network drive for this. When I attempt this, I fail because it doesn't see the Internet connection.
I have tried the following solutions which haven't worked
  • Disabling link scanning in AVG
  • Disabling all other network connections

I have the same problem. In my case I can use internet using dailup but I cannot use LAN since its showing the following.

I am really frustrated since I was under the impression that entering the IP config manually will work on Windows 7.

I would really appreaciate if anyone provides me a solution. THANKS.

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).

I don't have the same problem myself but two of my colleagues have had the same issue: not displayed but Internet access is absolutely fine. They are both using belkin routers and I am NOT suggesting this is a belkin problem lol. Could it be an issue with some routers and their settings? But good to hear your Internet is accessible
