nathan sounds like your computer not able to get an IP Address from your router, it then sets the ip address, usually the default subnet for home networks is something like 192.168.1.x or 192.168.0.x , add to the fact you have no gateway setup, means you will most definantly have no access to the internet. here is things you can do to try to resolve this:

1) do you have firewall installed? what protection software you use? this includes security solutions or firewalls. if you do, remove it by doing uninstall, use windows firewall instead if you want a firewall, and other solutions for anti-virus such as Avast/Avira which are free anyway.
2) Does it help if you use static IP instead of DHCP? try seting your IP address to something like, with a subnet mask of and a gateway of ( which is usually the default settings for most routers, I'm asuming you have a router ). if there is another PC connected, you can try and check what is your network like, by typing "ipconfig /all" . note down the IP address of other PCs, use the same first 3 numbers and the last one put something uniqe to your network, for example if computer B has try once your done try to ping computer B or to test conectivity.

windows 7

I found a solution to this problem, it is the driver. I searched for 4 days to find a driver that worked and finally it is version If you can roll back your driver by uninstalling your old driver I quarantee this driver will solve your wireless issue.

Windows 7 Professional


I have the same adapter and "solved" the issue with a new router. I had tried older drivers (including with no luck. If you have the right adapter/driver/router combination it will work fine but my Linksys WRT110 just palin would not play with Win 7 and my 4965AGN. I installed a Netgear WNDR3770 and my connection has been solid for 24 hours.

Windows 7

Hy everyone,

I have an interesting and persisting 'limited connectivity' problem in Windows 7. Some history:

- preinstalled Windows 7 on Dell Studio 1557 I7 processor
- in the first 10 days everything was perfect - connecting to internet at the job and at home (wirelessly and by wire)
- suddenly I can not get to internet at home wirelessly (Linksys WRT54G) - all other three options (at home by wire, on the job both wireless and wired still works perfectly)

- yes, I have to point out that other computers in my home wireless / wired network running XPs still work perfectly and connect to internet without any problem ...
- also, even on Dellrunning Windows 7 I have excellent signal, IP assigned, I can use shared disks and printer - everything, except for the internet access ...

then I tried:
- updating wireless router Linksys WRT54G to latest firmware
- played a while with router options ...
- backrolling wireless card drivers (actually I got it working for a few minutes at first try (!)) and never never again
- tried updating drivers of wireless card (Microsoft library, Dell support, manufacturer of the card - all of them)
- deinstalling, installing ... wireless card ..., deleting all connections, creating new connections ...
- spent hours of talk with internet provider (blaims Microsoft)
- spent some time talking to Microsoft (they blaim DSL provider ...)

So, it is a catch 22 situation, right ?

Help ?

P.S.: I have tried a few more thing, that I can not even remember anymore
