#12 is your last device, but in ipconfig, you go up to #21...

Yes I am running ESET, but have disabled it and still no success. So I guess I'm not technically running it right now, ha.

Jeez, that's a lot of stuff.

I'd start with all the 6to4 adapters with a number and all the ISATAP adapters that have a number next to them.

I also see the ESET firewall in there. You sure it's OK for W7?

Try the sfc/scannow first, as Chev65 suggested.

You will need to uninstall that completely, firewalls cause just these types of problems. After that run the sfc/scannow. And delate all those extra DNS entries in Device Manager. It looks like Eset was causing this or at least it's highly suspect at this point.

I have disabled the whole thing for the time being. Why would it not work now when it has been just fine all these months?

When those programs update themselfs it can cause the program to change it's behavior. A complete uninstall is best.

So your W7 was running fine all those months? till something infested it recent?

So a restore didn't work. I'm sure a reinstall will.

...and who just gave me 1 (one) rep point? i need a 1000 to catch up to mr chev.

Well I deleted all those extra adapters, deleted ESET, restarted and tada, it works. I have internet access. So I don't know if my problem was eset or the adapters, but it's working now. I really hate to ditch ESET as I payed good money for it and it has worked well, I may re-download it to test to see if that was the problem. But thank you all so much for helping me. Much better than sitting on a phone for a couple hours with support. If I incur anymore problems I'll be sure to post them on this forum. Since most of the people on here really seem to know their stuff. You've all been repped.

Thanks again
