Windows 7: Network cable unplugged

windows 7
 
 

windows doesn't prompt for any new network when connected to the router (i replaced the network cable with one i was sure off did work). I did as you sad, i reinstalled the adapter and restarted but still got no network prompt. I only get a network prompt if connected directly to the modem (and then i still can't go on the internet).
yesterday, when reinstalling the adapter windows would crash (every time) and turn off, so i had to reinstall windows 7, but I don't think this would have anything to do with me not getting internet.

Try Another Computer

Do you have another computer you can test the modem and router with also remember you need to restart you can't just plug and unplug cables when switching between the modem and router you need to restart all device and let new IP's be handed out.

all other computers run on xp and work fine (mine did too on xp), when switching, i did not restart the modem, going to try that.
Oh and also, no lights are burning on the router (at least those that the windows 7 comp is related to)

If everything is working with your XP machines and was working untill you installed windows 7 the settings in router won't matter the problem is with that machine.
