Windows 7: 90% of the websites wont work

10 Apr 2009   #11


well i tried a few a few virus scanners and a rootkit scanner, but i dont
seem to have any kind of virus. been wondering, maybe its my router that
has problems with handling windows 7, i installed an older build that i tried
out once at my work office, didn't have any probs then, but now that same
build wont work here at home either o.O

OK, back to the issue at hand - the OP is having issues surfing.

@OP - what sort of malware scans have you performed?

It seems to be an issue with my router, i'm currently at my brothers house
with my laptop, connected to his router and everything works..

As said before im using a CopperJet 1616-P2 modem, connected to that i
have a Speedtouch Router for the wifi. None of my other computers, both
vista and xp have any problems connecting to the websites that wont work
under windows 7 .. im rather clueless on what it might be tbh

Well i think i found the problem, my guess is that the windows 7 drivers for my wifi
adapter aint working correctly (Dell Wireless 1450 Dualband WLAN Mini-PCI Card).

When i use a cable between the Speedtouch instead of Wifi it works fine, Tho i dont
understand why some sites would work and some not when i use WIFI to connect.
