Windows 7: Cannot Connect to Internet or Network (sometimes)

The spec sheet for your wifi card states that it's compatible with both 802.11b and 802.11g, so you shouldn't have a problem with the router that you state is equipped with the same.

What is that "cFos Speed for faster Internet connections (NDIS 5)" in the properties window in your screenshot. Looks like an add-on that's supposed to do exactly what it states in the its title. You might check on its properties or try to connect with it disabled.

In your screenshot, what happens when you click on Home in the dialog in the lower right corner?

Just stepping aside for F5ing to help you. Don't wish to step on any toes or disrespect any members here who know more than me with the issue.

Hey, no need to step aside! I only posted a little offering as no one had responded to his last post. Help if you've got something!

That's an interesting point you bring up. I'll try that when I get up tomorrow and I'll let you know.

About clicking on "Home" in the dialogue box, that's just to connect to my home network (it's what I'm connected to right now on my laptop.) Sadly, on my desktop, when I click the button it tries to connect and it usually fails to connect, telling me I'm out of range or the settings do not match.

The last ipconfig shows absolutely no connection to the router at all. What's interesting is that Windows shows the device is working fine so your A/V may also be blocking the connection. Uninstalling Avast should be a consideration at this point.

It's also important to point out that which ever wireless settings are being used by the router need to be reflected in the wireless profile for this connection in "Manage Wireless Connections" in Windows?

So which ever security the router is using needs to be manually input into the wireless profile for this connection. So you will most likely need to access the router at 192.168.1.1 to find out this information.

And you are really limiting the speed of this new adaptor by using an old wireless G router rather than using a Wireless N version.

Sadly, none of that will help.

I don't have antivirus software, at all.

I've tried my best to match the settings of the router on my computer, including the IP addresses.

I agree that having an N network would be better but my router is at least 3 years old and only works with G and B.

So I've tried those options with no luck.

I also tried disabling the cFos, which also did not work.

I'm going to return the wifi card and get a different one, hopefully that will work and I'll let you guys know.

EDIT: I have returned the wifi card and gone to an alternate hard wire method. I appreciate your guys' help.
