    Hi

    I am Hawkman on 10.....

    Bit remiss of me
    There is something odd about your Advanced tab screenshot
    It seems to be missing the first 2 options
    see this link
    Adapter Settings
    (i've got a comp running the 5100 wifi card--shows all options)

    did you actually try what i said in that post
    Thanks torchwood.

    Could it be that those options have been made available in later Operating Systems?

    I did try your suggestion but as before I can access network resources on the LAN but no Internet.

    What is the driver version and date?

    On a different note. how come you are running win7 amd64 on only 2gb ram? You could probably upgrade your ram for pennies at CEX.

    Something like 2 sticks of single sided ddr2
    2048MB-667MHz DDR2-667 PC2-5300 SODIMM ( it will run at 533 )

    Since installing a new router I have been unable to wirelessly connect to the Internet even with both the hardware and software Firewalls disabled.

    I can however:


    • connect wirelessly to network resources on the LAN
    • connect to the Internet using a wired Ethernet connection
    • connect wirelessly to the Internet using another device (Win 10)


    I have tried deleting the wireless connection and recreating it but the issue persists.

    I have also tried a different wireless connection but that also failed to connect to the Internet.

    The configuration of the settings in the Network and Sharing Center appear to be correct.

    If anybody has any suggestions how to resolve this issue they will be much appreciated.

    When you say you can't connect could you be more specific - does the SSID for your VM router show up in the wireless network list?



    If it does what happens when you try to connect?

    The driver version is 12.4.1.4 dated 26/03/2009.

    Thanks for your suggestion regarding upgrading the memory. However, the installed memory is adequate for these particular needs.

    The SSID is shown in the Wireless Network Connection list.

    However, although it is shown as Connected, it also states No Internet access.

    It is possible to connect wirelessly to network resources on the LAN

    Hi

    OK, lets go ballistic.....
    turn off your Ethernet device
    REMOVE the driver for the Wlan card

    REBOOT

    the system should then pick up the driver i mentioned in my earlier post

    Silly question time is the Wlan card turned on by default on your comp.... most have an on/off button of some description either via an "F" key or a seperate dedicated button

    Hi torchwood, and thanks for sticking with this issue.

    WLAN driver is reinstalled, but the issue persists.

    The WLAN card is not turned off.

    what is actually showing in the bar
    A yellow like bomb or an X
    They relate to different failure reasons
    if its a bomb --- network related (dont forget your new router will have a different SSID--- 12 digit code)
    X --- means driver

    torchwood thanks for your message.

    The taskbar shows an exclamation mark in a yellow triangle.

    The PC is correctly configured for the new router's SSID.

    Thanks for your message.

    I have run this tool, but the resulting ZIP files is quite small (22bytes) and contains just a mirror image of the files stored on the desktop, so not the anticipated wealth of detail.
