Alright, so I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 build 7086 x64. Everything works just find, except my network adapters. I'll detail system specs after I explain the problem.
When i connect one of my cables, the computer attempts to identify the network. It doesnt. I check IPconfig, and it gets all DHCP information from my Linksys router, but no internet connection. I have IPv6 turned off on both adapters, as well as the VMnet adapters i use for VMware Workstation.
I attempt to ping google.com and it comes back, ping request could not find host
I attempt to ping the router, and says host unreachable.
(IPconfig data - Local Area Connection 2) (Local Area Connection 1 shows up the same with IPv4 Address 192.168.1.102)
Connection-specific DNS Suffix : oxfordnetworks.net
IPv4 Address : 192.168.1.103
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway : 192.168.1.1
The Gateway itself sees the Win 7 computer, but when i ping from the router to 192.168.1.103, it times out.
Also, I attempted to update the network drivers
using the Intel Pro v14 Vista x64 drivers, and the installer wouldnt let me install the drivers because of "software not built for your operating system"

Everything EXCEPT the network is working flawlessly on this sytem
