Windows 7: No Internet Connection After Boot UP or Wake Up

30 Jun 2012   #11

Windows 7 x64 Home Premium

I had recently purchased a Gigabyte GC-WB150 WiFi and Bluetooth 4 card for my desktop machine. After installing all of the drivers and software, I found that the card appeared not to function. Upon checking in 'device Manager' the card had been installed. I was now using the troubleshooter on network connections to find that I was getting this "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter" message.

Here is the solution that worked for me.

Control Panel > Administration Tools > Computer Management > Services & Applications > Services.

Scroll down this list to find 'WLAN Auto Config'

Double click on 'WLAN Auto Config' On the general tab, select from the start up type drop down menu, select 'Automatic'. Under Service Status click on 'Start'. Then 'Apply' these settings and exit from all open control panel windows.

This should then allow Windows to set the required bindings.

Since doing these actions, I have had no further issues with the WiFi.

Hope this helps.
