Windows 7: "No Internet connection" Unidentified network

Win 7 starter 32 bit
"No Internet connection" Unidentified network

My Toshiba Satellite L45d-s5976 suddenly started not connecting to the Internet via wireless router Linksys WRT 120N and motorola surfboard cable modem. It connects to the modem but I get "No Internet access" and at the top it says " Unidentified network" but underneath it shows being connected to the router but "NIA". Troubleshooting instructs to cycle the modem which I have done several times, no help. The modem and router are good as we have an Acer netbook and two I phones connected to the Internet via the same router. I have gone over the forum and tried solutions for simuliar problems with no avail. This laptop and a Toshiba netbook we both Oliver in when we had a lightening strike 3 weeks ago. I gave up on the netbook and am trying to decide if I want to keep spending time on it.

PS please no comments on lighting protection. I have GE lighting protectors on the incoming power. The lighting came through
An improperly installed cable connection which was not buried. The cable was not grounded and no fuseable link installed. The modem and router literally exploded and the strike jumped to the AC via the modem power supply and burned several wires and breakers. All should check your incoming cable.

Welcome to SF,

Have you uninstalled/reinstalled the driver from Device Manager? Do you have the latest driver?

Can you please post an ipconfig /all for review?
