Windows 7: Wireless Network Connected but No Internet Access

Wireless Network Connected but No Internet Access

Hey guys, I've been searching this forum and other resources for days now with no luck. I'm connected to our apartment's wireless network, but about a week ago I found the infamous yellow triangle and "No Internet Access." I was going along fine for about a month and this came out of nowhere.

I've tried every imaginable ipconfig command that has been suggested, including flushdns, ipreset, all the winsock commands, etc. I've tried resetting everything: modem, router, laptop... I've tried enabling/uninstalling my wireless adapter, changed my TCP/IPv4 settings, used trusted DNS settings, the whole 9 yards. I've renamed my computer, deleted the network profile, deleted my computers profile on the router, booted on safe mode, you get the picture.

I installed Xirrus from a flash drive, and I can post screenshots of any info that may be required, but any help is greatly appreciated!! Very difficult to be limited to an iPhone for all your Internet needs...

Have you had a look at the router settings to make sure you have access?

Click on Start then Run or press Window key (next to left Ctrl key) +R and paste the following into the Run box, exactly as shown, including double quotes:

cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

and press ENTER.

A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close.

If you don't have a Run selection off the Start menu, see here: Enable Run Command on Windows 7 or Vista Start Menu

That all looks okay. I see you are using OpenDNS. When did you start using them? You might want to try switching back to your router as the DNS server, 10.0.0.1, or switch to Obtain IP and DNS addresses automatically.

I started using OpenDNS last night, and before that it was set to automatically obtain

Maybe the passphrase changed? Try removing the existing wireless network:

Type networks at the Start menu, and select "Manage wireless networks."
Here you can change the search & connect order for wireless networks (top-most is 1st priority), as well as delete a network.

Now click on the Wireless Network icon in the System area of the Taskbar and connect to the wireless network again. See if that helps.

If you can go into Device Manager and open up Network connections, then disable the Microsoft virtual WiFi mini port adaptor. After that see if your connection works again, it may require a reboot.

This virtual adaptor causes connection problems all the time.
