I had Win 7 working fine on my other laptop. It has started giving me trouble connecting to the internet. The troubleshooting completes. Tells me its resolved and I continuously get a "Local Area Connection doesnt have a valid IP configuration". The wireless network says "Unidentified Network" No Internet Access. I tried uninstalling and reistalling the drivers and it didnt work.

It started happening after I uninstalled Jetico Personal Firewall.

See if flushing the DNS cache works to solve the problem.

Open a command prompt....from the Start menu, select Run > In the box/"open field", enter cmd.exe

enter ipconfig /flushdns press 'enter'

Did that as well. I tried everything I could find in a google search. None of it worked.

I see you've posted at Wilder's too, so I'll let them try to help you. It's hard to know what the advice given and you've already done when you post in several forums :huh:
