Windows 7: Internet Connection Issue - not router

Internet Connection Issue - not router

Good Day,

This week I upgraded to Win7 from a Vista machine using HP's free upgrade that came with the laptop we got on 9-1. Upgrade went fine, but couldn't connect to the internet. The laptop was seeing and communicating with the router, just no internet on the back end. The laptop DOES get a usable connection when I boot in Safe+Networking mode, and I am posting from that laptop now. But obviously my wofe would like to be in standard mode.

I have tried to reinstall the driver for the adapter, I have tried to uninstall and re-install the adapter. I have reset the WinSock settings (I think I was doing that correctly...I have uninstalled Bonjour...and several other things that quite honestly I forget.

Here are a couple other clues to this puzzle. When in conventional logon, the Ethernet adapter also does not work when the laptop is hard-wired to the router. When in conventional, I can get a response when I ping Google, the yellow triangle and exclamation goes away, but I still get no usable connection.

When I had updates under Vista that included IE8, the connection issue also showed itself. I would go to a restore point before this update, and the machine would work again. Obviously, system restore with a new upgrade to Win7 really isn't an option, or is it?

I know this isn't the OS, nor is it probably IE8, but omething associated with the updates or the upgrade that is preventing a connection, but that goes away when I boot up in safe mode.

I know it's probably something running in conventional boot-up that is running, but what exactly would I look for that would be there then and not in Safe mode?

Thanks for any and all assistance you can give me.

First, I would like to welcome you to the Seven Forums.

Could you please post results of ipconfig (open command prompt, type ipconfig /all) when logged in normally, not on the safe mode w. networking.

Try a system restore to back before you made the update?

To do this click Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System restore. You should be able to find a calendar with restore points. Select one and make sure to save documents. It will then restart and you will be brought back before your update. No documents will be affected.

Hope this helps!

I'm not fimiliar with this router, but from the ipconfig you listed above it seems to not be giving out an IP adress. If it is working with 3 other computers it could be that there is a windows firewall that is blocking it. Try turning windows firewall off and see what happens. Also try going to the router's settings and see if it has the IP adress of your computer blocked.
