Windows 7: Upgraded to 7, now no internet...

have you installed the Win7 driver?

"Local Area Connection" is the Win7 default naming you can change anytime - reboot after the driver has been installed and configure the cards properties like DNS server settings or whatever is needed. maybe compare to the XP tcp/ip settings.

You did not tell how you connect to the internet

So now I got Netgear adapter installed with one of the ways I was trying, but the driver I'm guessing is wrong because it still is not giving me internet... The adapter I think I downloaded was V.1 and I need V.2 i'm guessing..??

i would do a clean install on the HD and just run 7, but i'm kinda glad I didn't because I'd had no internet whatsoever... I got the FA311 Netgear driver installed and it's showing it now in my Network Adapters but when I plug in an ethernet cable it says Identifying for a minute, than says Unidentified Network?? And when I open the Local Area Connection window it says IPv4 Connectivity: No network Access and IPv6 Connectivity: No Network Access??

Hi


I am assuming you are running homegroup and IPv6.It may not support IPv6. you can verify by creating a new network connection using the workgroup model which uses IPv4. It is works you can disable IPv6 and kill homegroup.


Let us know if that doesnt help

I believe I found a solution for this problem on another page. Apparently there are some settings that need to be tweaked in order to get it up and running.

I think I have the NETGEAR FA311, B-1 up and running:

Solution - Netgear FA311 v1 + No Internet + RC Build 7100
http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-...html#post34639

Source: http://www.overclock.net/windows/521...t-drivers.html

After you've installed the NETGEAR FA311, B-1 drivers (I'll have to try to find which drivers I used.)
On a non-working install:
Go to Device manager, right click on NIC, Select properties. Click Advanced tab, Under the property, there should be 3 entries listed:

1. Network Address - Not present selected
2. Speed & Duplex settings - Auto sense (This will be changed to 100TX)
3. Transmit buffers - 160
(Transmit buffers were set at 40 by default on my system for some reason. I think I'm running the 1.80 FA311 drivers - I set this value to 128 (Highest it would go)

Select Power Management tab,
By default Both the check boxes were selected.
(These will be deselected as Netgear website says the v1 doesnt support wake-on LAN and it has a speed of 100Tx.)

THE FIX, (5 steps):
1: Go to Device manager, right click on NIC, Select properties. Click Advanced tab. On the advanced tab, Select Speed & Duplex settings. Change Auto Sense to 100Tx.

2: Change Transmit buffers * Note this is optional 1.8 driver inf sets to 40, I changed to 128

3: Go to Power Management tab, Uncheck both the check boxes.

4: Click Ok and exit out of any menus.

5: Reboot router, dsl/cable modem if it has a built-in router.


Additional info:
No need to reboot- but you may have to power cycle your router /DSL modem if it has a built in router.

For me after doing the above settings I had to go into the "Network and Sharing Center", and change the network type to private (or workgroup) from public..

The only problem with Netgear there are no current drivers - get the Realtek drivers, not many are aware the FA/GA cards have Realtek chips, and all is well out of the box - end of story.

it's simple like that..

I upgraded to Windows 7 and now my internet is slower
I have been using Ubuntu Linux on a laptop for 2 years, and have had internet speeds of about 50-100 kbp/s. Today I bought an HP Pavilion DV6-1354US, and my internet connection now tops at about 7 kbp/s, with the same ethernet connection. What's the deal? And how can I fix it?
