Windows 7: Can't connect to internet

15 Jan 2012   #61

Windows 7 Home Premiun 64 bit

Now going from bad to worse.
On the vista i looked to network map and it showed is is netgear3, not network2 like this windows 7. Went back out to try the XP, no go. I came back in and all three couldn't get on line. The vista came up with a message windows detected IP address conflict with another network. I shut it down and came back to this 7. in the network and sharing window it was trying to connect to unidentified network the flash back to network then back to unidentifed network. It also got the IP conflict message. Went out and shut down the XP. Shutting down it had the same
IP conflict message. Came back in to this 7 computer it is now connected to network2 and can get on internet. Still can't get in web browser or command prompt. While doing the above the xp and vista were wireless. and the 7 wired. The vista is a laptop so I can take it to the router or modem for plug in with cable

I don't know what the hell ya got going on over there now . I think you may be confusing the wired and wireless network names, which are 2 different connections. If there is a different network connection name for your Local Area Connection - that's ok. The name of your wireless network name is something different. I'm trying to get you to work on one pc at a time to avoid any confusion. Once one is working, you can move on to the next one. Turn off any computers that don't need to be turned on for now.
