Long time lurker, first time poster here.
I just installed 32-bit Windows 7 ultimate on my laptop, and am (still) having a spot of bother getting my internets from a public router located near my girlfriend's place.
My problem is the following: I connect to the router fine and the signal quality is excellent, but there is no internet access at all.
The wireless connection icon in the taskbar shows a yellow warning triangle, and when hovering over it with my mouse pointer I read the following: "no internet access".
Last week when I still had xp on the laptop I had the exact same problem: excellent connection, no internet access.
Both with xp and Windows 7 I had no problems at all connecting to my router at home.
I have been connecting to the troublesome router for months on my iphone, without any issues. Any random macbook also connects to it without any problems.
When I run diagnostics I am told the following: "wireless network connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".
TCP/IPv4 is set to "obtain an IP address/DNS server automatically", and has been since the beginning, with DHCP enabled.
I've tried anything and everything I found floating around on the internet (including disabling TCP/IPv6 as well as a whole slew of other settings), but to no avail.
Obviously, my wireless card (Intel wireless wifi link 4965AGN) works perfectly (works great on my home router), and so does the public router from which I'm trying to get internet access (works admirably on anything mac: iphone, macbooks).
My guess is the problem lies somewhere in my settings, and I have been going over all of the relevant settings I could find some twenty times. No love.
I really hope any of you can offer some advice, I'm getting super angry!
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I also updated the wireless card driver
to the very latest, no worky
