Windows 7

Ok, I've started reinstalling Windows 7. It's an upgrade version (from Vista) but it seems to be reinstalling fine. I'll post the results, either way thank you very very much for your help!

No, thank you. A little respect and a little appreciation, makes helping others worth while. Thank you so much for the +rep.

In case the repair does not work. Go to search, type in cmd, then type in ipconfig. Send a screen shot of the results.

win 7 hp 64

Hi I had a similar problem from a particular(wired) computer on my home network. 2 worked fine( one wired one wirelless) but 3rd had a connection but could not browse the internet. So I assumed it was something in the PC setup. Could ping addresses and sites. Followed lots of advice relating to Netsh and winsocks, proxy servers etc. Eventually I just put the network cable into another port and I could Browse no Problem! So now I am thinking it must be a setting affecting only one of the router ports
