Do you have a separate firewall or the default??
Have you tried deactivating the firewall or turning it off restart and check if there is a connection??

You could try this also. Open the Device manager. Right click your netwrok adapter.
Go to the "Power management" tab and see if the "Allow the computer to turn of this device to save power" is unchecked.

i tried doing the device manager thing but there is not network adapter to right click so this probably means i need a driver for that
im assuming for a NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller

davidhc was correct in determining it was a laptop...
what model laptop is this???
if you cant install your adapter look here in my thread for the app DriverMax...
List of Supported apps in Windows 7 (6801/6956)

install it and backup the networking controller driver...
restore it in Windows 7
