Windows 7: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 will not connect wired or wireless

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 will not connect wired or wireless

I have tried searching everywhere to find an end to my head ache, but nothing has worked.
Everything was going fine until one day my wired connection stopped seeing the there was a connection.
Everything is working I am able to browse the internet and do things online but the problem really got annoying when I tried to verify an origin game that I bought online because you have to have an internet connection to verify but my computer says I don't have one. http://www.sevenforums.com/images/smilies/mad.png

I thought maybe adding a wireless connection would help as nothing I had came across from Microsoft or online could get it to work.
So I went out and got a wireless adapter and with the wireless it says not connected connections are available and below it says that I am connected.
I have tried changing all kinds of different things, to many to remember now.
I am willing to try anything to get it to work again.
If anyone can help I would really love it.

I am not sure if this matters, but I forgot to mention that on a different hard drive on the same computer I have Windows XP and all of the network connections work perfectly.

Hello and Welcome to Seven Forums,

I would start off with a System Restore, you can save a lot of headaches if you this will work for you. If not, we can move on to more troubleshooting tasks.

How to restore to an earlier point before things went haywired.

I have tried to do a system restore but I don't have a good restore point and my family has added a lot before we really realized that there was a problem.

I am still a bit novice about computers, I think I know how to do the ipconfig /all in the cmd window, but how do I get that data to show you?

Thanks for the ipconfig/all output, good job!

Your WLAN output looks good but not the LAN or wired connection. Is your wired and wireless connection not working, just need to verify? How are you able to post here, from another computer?

Do you have the latest Windows Updates and Service Pack.

What type of Anti-Virus or Security programs are you running?

I am thinking with all of the messing around I did trying to get it to work I messed it up by turning something off or on in the services.
As of right now the wireless is letting my use the internet, but it still has a message that says that it has connections available but is not connected.
I tried to attach an image that I made of what it says, but I am not really sure how to do it.
This is my first time using forums.

It says that I have service pack 1.
For Anti-Virus I have a form of F-Secure 2012, my internet company charges me monthly for it and will not stop charging me even if I don't us it.

You may try refreshing your wireless networks. Here's a Tutorial by Brink, make sure that when you re-add your SSID or wireless network type in the correct pass-phrase or encryption.

I tried that but once it connects it goes back to the same thing of saying that there are connections.
