One night i turned off my computer completely then after it shut off i turned off the power strip. then the next morning i could no longer connect to the internet. the router and modem are located in another room. nothing seems wrong with the router because i can connect it to my xbox and get into xbox live. when i open the network connections it says that the network im connecting to is unidentified, but other computers can identify it, wifi also works no problem. of course i tried using the windows troubleshooters like a million times and nothing changes. i recall in my attempt to fixing it accidentally deleting something in merge or delete network locations and have not been able to get it back. also in my frustration to fix the solution i have done a clean install of windows 7 64bit to see if it could auto fix everything in some kind of factory default but that did not work. i also tried taking off the routers security to allow all access but that did not work either, and of course i did the unplug everything replug. your answers will be greatly appreciated only if it solves my problem haha. im also thinking of using my mothers geeksquad membership while its there.
