Windows 7: Unidentified network, No Internet access

Unidentified network, No Internet access

Hello,
I am traveling in South America with my brand new Asus Eee 1005HA-PU17, running Windows 7. I was able to connect to Wifi networks without a problem until 2 days ago, when Windows installed some new updates. Now, when I try to connect to a Wifi network it shows that I am connected, but it also says No Internet access and I can not connect to any sites. Ive done the troubleshoting over and over with no success. I can see that other people around me are connected to the internet with thier laptops. I dont know what to do. Ive attached a screen shot.

Please help,
TJ

Go to the update panel and look at the previously installed updates, get a shot of what you installed so we can see what you did.

Well it says you are connected just not to the internet ?

Try restarting the router.

Zen00,
I was not able to find the information for the update that Windows installed automaticly, probably because I restored the system to a point prior to the installation. Should I look somewhere else?

aem,
This is not a router in my home. I have had this problem on every network that I have tried to connect to since my computer restarted to install updates. I have tried to get online in about 3 or 4 different locations so far. Im travelling for the next year, so Im connecting to Wifi whenever I get the chance.

Isnt there a setting for each one that allows access to the Internet? I am sure there is because I had the same problem with my new router/laptop after an update. It also said no internet access. I looked through all the network stuff and found a tickbox somewhere. Cant look it up at present as I am at work with no access to my Windows 7 laptop

Nothing to worry about it.

* If, you have any wired connection, connect your Laptop and try updating the WIFI divers :)

* Try to find out the adapter brand name and model from LAN properties !!!
