Windows 7: Can't connect to internet, other computers in house can

Windows 7
Can't connect to internet, other computers in house can


This morning in noticed my computer was connected to the network but not to the internet after some troubleshooting and forum reading I tried to:
Reset router
Ipconfig commands
restart computer
restart in safe mode with network enabeled
tested MAC adress (found that on forum here)

I can connect to other networks in my street, and i can connect to my own network when using the LAN cable.

when trying to connect to my network it shows connected to internet for couple of second and then i get the yellow "!" warning. Said warning will appear and dissapear every 10 minutes or so

Part from that theres some other strange things I noticed over the last year (that might have something to do with it) The name of my WIFI isWIFI769, it has been that for the last 3 years, accept that since last summer it has gotten the addendum "1"

making the name WIFI769 1, that has, in the last year gone up to WIFI769 4, togheter with a recent change of my password. I have no idea how my password changed, i had to find it out by going into properties and checkin the password myself. No one in my house couldve changed this.

Dont know if the 2 are related but its definitely something strange

After looking for solutions for the bigger part of the day I tried one last thing I could come up with. Delete the whole existing Network and make a brand new one, did this on the pc that had problems, succesfully made a new wifi and deleted the old one, new works on other computers, but not on this one, exact.same.problem

Im really at the end of my own ideas, any help would be greatfully appreciated
