No Wireless Internet Cannot communicate with DNS server

I've just upgraded to Windows7, previously everything was fine. Now I can connect through the LAN to everything. However when I connect Wireless I can get on the network but not the internet my error message is 'Cannot communicate with DNS service'. My router is Linksys WAG160N. My adapter is Atheros AR5007 and my laptop is a Compaq CG60-430SA. It took me ages to find the latest driver on the HP site and it made no difference. All the drivers are up to date, the router has been reset and my hair has been pulled out. any other ideas?

Kapersky tends to cause many problems with wireless connections, both the Kapersky firewall and A/V software needs to be uninstalled if the problem persists. I believe there is a setting to allow for wireless connections somewhere in the Kapersky software but I'm not sure where it is.

Can you also check in Device Manager and see if there is a yellow! showing next to the wireless adaptor?

You will need to uninstall completely both the Kapersky firewall and A/v software. Turning it off won't do it.

You have to understand that Kapersky has caused this type of problem so many times I have lost count. I can't say for sure this is the problem but it's very likely. The fact that your phone connects yet your PC can't points to a blocked connection.

uninstalled Kasp, no change. I agree it does seem like something is blocked.
