No, IE = 0 and hardware = 0
When I use mouseover on the wireless it say
"connecter
no internet access"

Just booter a Mac and an XP laptop and both work fine, even if the mac was never connected on this network.

OK ..... Sorry I find this confusing.

Now, Windows 7 has ways to diagnose problems. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" either from the Control Panel or from the icon bottom right in the taskbar. You can click on the "Local Area Connection" link and use the Diagnose button there as well see what DHCP has assigned. Also, there is a "Troubleshoot problems" link for networking, the last line on the page.

Also, when you created the New Network connection, you have three choices: Home Network (less secure), Work (more secure), or Public (most secure). You can find the specific settings under the "Advanced sharing settings". Everything depends on how you setup the New Network Connection and what the diagnosing discovers. I suggest you experiment with some of these settings. Hope you find a cause.

Same wireless network != same computer

And the network diagnostic is the first thing I did. The one in device manager say no problem found, same for the net configs one. It only say that my wired card are not working.

Right, it is a desktop, but no lan card work. The onboard is detected, but show driver errors (the follow a nice BSOD, so it is disabled for now), if I try to use the official driver, it say that the current one is more recent (it may be more recent, but 7 should check if it work before blocking the official driver...).

My client want a wlan card anyway as the computer is for her office and the network is too far for wired connection. I have an USB wireless dongle somewhere, I will test to see if it is better, but it have a similar chipsset, so the result should be the same.

I see. Well ... My question is if you can post using this computer, why can't you download the most current drivers with it, then copy them to a floppy or a usb drive or something and then copy them to the windows 7 computer where you can install the most current driver for one of the cards you have and see if one of them will work better than what you have now?

I have the most recent drivers and I did transfer them on an USB thumb drive. The wlan card itself work, I can see my intranet, I just can't see the internet.

DNS? Nic config? networking broken?

@iseeuu: The wlan driver work fine, no need to touch it (or point me a good reason why it is my problem). It seem to be a windows 7 internet net stack problem or something like that more than a driver issue.

@zigzag3143: possible but I don't think it would appear now. I will check settings in win7 to see if they are weird. Default settings should normally work fine as the actual setup is almost a standard as any home network (without the gateway).

Writing IP addresses directly in IE address bar does not work, so it is not a DNS problem...
