Windows 7: WIFI connected but no Internet

WIFI connected but no Internet

Hello everyone, so the other day my PC unexpectedly shut down and been giving connectivity issues since.
Currently, I can connect to my WIFI router, gain an IP address. however I am getting no internet access.
I have a virtual machine running on the PC, with windows XP, and this machine does have full internet access.

Problems and resolutions so far:
Windows firewall and security manager were corrupted and various services did not start however all are up now.
  • I reset the TCPIP stack via command prompt.
  • I reinstalled Wifi drivers.
  • I ran the sfc and chkdisk commands. Check disk resolved some issues.
  • Netsh winsock reset
  • I did a traceroute and it hit my router, after there is a request timeout then it goes to a few addresses before stopping.

I'm lost now as everything seems to be up, just I am unable to browse. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Click on Trouble shoot problems.
