Been searching around google for days with this one.
Upgraded to Windows 7 (Ultimate 64-bit) from vista 2 weeks ago. Then 3 days ago decided to add a new HDD due to the fact my other was close to overflowing. Shut down computer pulled out power cable, usual safety things to do. Plugged everything back up HDD working fine, then I noticed Network icon was still identifying. It then went to Public Network - No Internet access. So had a little fiddle around (as one does) Set an IP...Nothing. Reset adapter.....Nothing. Changed it back to auto-detect......nothing. I even dug up an old wireless network PCI card (thinking it could be hardware related) but alas......nothing.
Could really do with some help
-Have another computer on same network with Vista
-Connected via cable (no problem there, tried with laptop, worked straight away)
-Have tried iprenew iprelease etc
Also the thing that really through me off the scent of the problem was as I thought it could be to do with the recent addition of HDD I took it out , resulted in nothing.
Anyway Iīve also linked this as it could be mighty helpful.
