Moved into new flat last week. Wireless being used by other flatmates fine but my connection does not allow browsing on internet. Wired connection works. Have had no problems with other free or secured wireless before. Installed Xirrus wi-fi inspector which shows an issue with connection. It sends bytes but does not receive any. Results posted below.

Connection Test Results
Test Address Summary Result
DNS Reachable Ping: 0 of 5 Fail: 100% ping loss
Gateway Reachable Ping: 0 of 5 Fail: 100% ping loss
DNS Lookup www.google.com
No IP address returned Fail: DNS lookup failure
Internet Reachable N/A N/A Fail: No IP available

What can I do to get a connection that allows web browsing? Ive tried resetting all internet settings to default.

I am using Windows Vista on an Acer Aspire 5315-2153.
The wireless adapter is an AR5007EG.
The router is a Netgear N150

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
