Windows 7 Pro
Connected to router but no internet

Having problems with an old Wi-Fi card Download for TL-WDN4800 | TP-Link
I know it worked before, but yesterday i installed a clean version of Win7 and now it wont work anymore.

I'm able to connect to the router and even log in, but i have no internet connection.
I've tried several drivers with no luck and trubleshooting does not help.

Any ideas?

First question - Have you tried to connect any other devices to the router, If other devices cannot connect then the router setup is the likely cause, check the settings for your ISP in the router settings If other devices work then it's something with the Windows Install, but this would be unusual, unless your "Router" is just a Hub or Modem. If this is the case then I would again look at the settings from the ISP which may be stored in the PC (ISP Software App?)

Figured it out. I had to install the utility as well. Never had that problem before but now it at least works.
