Hi A and welcome

You seem to have done all the right things to work, so lets try a simple thing first
in search type cmd>then ipconfig /flush , followed by ipconfig /renew.

If that works a simple dns fix will cure it

If not (mor likely) type ipconfig /all and using the snipping tool make a screenshot. To upload it use the attachment tool in the reply form

See the enclosed pics

ok here is the ipconfig of the eeepc with xp on it. The dns flush didn't do anything, but I did get an error message about how it was not able to connect to the dhcp server or something like that.

And here is the Win 7 ipconfig screen. Thanks for all your help. Hopefully we can get something working here.
