Hi, I'm using a laptop with windows 7. I had a connection problem so I used the conncetion troubleshooting and I saw a message that says there might be a problem with the driver for the wireless network connection adapter. It sais that I'm connected but that I have ''Limited Access''.I don't have an internet connection because of this, in the network connection troubleshooting I clicked on ''try these repairs as an administrator''. Then it states that the problem has been detected (but not solved). What can I do to fix this? I've tried reseting the modem and the router, going to a friends house to try a different internet connection and even scanning the pc with spybot and avg internet security wich turned out clean. Any help?

Have you installed or removed any antivirus or firewall software on the machine ? If so, go into hardware management and disable and delete the wireless NIC. Reboot and let Windows re-install it, then try again. If that doesn't do it try connecting using an Ethernet cable and see what happens. If you get connected check the manufacturer's website for updates for the wireless card drivers and install any you find. You also need to be set to get your IP address and DNS settings automatically in your network -> interface -> TCP/IP settings control panel. Let us know what you find.

Thank you very much! It solved the problem instantly. I rebooted and had only to wait for the drivers to reinstall and input my network key. Again, thank you for helping me solve this problem.
