I seem to have a similar problem. I have a Win7 on an Acer Aspire One netbook. I usually use a bear (wifi)extender to get my internet connection. But it seems like a virus got into my computer, which wouldn't be hard to believe because evidently, when some friends rebuilt the software on my computer, they neglected to add a virus scan.
My stored data is fine and i can work with it fine, but i can't even access the internet (via google, yahoo or explorer etc) now when i go to the office where the router is and try to connect in with an etheret cable.
When i try to connect to the net in any way that i know how, in the little window in the top left, like a hardfile index marker, where an indicator going around in circles to show that something is loading, it says "404 not found."
Thank yous with smiles.
Please help me try to figure out this problem, which is probably not a very unique one.
