I am running Windows 7 currently and haven't had any problems up to this point. However, over the last few days, I have been getting
a yellow flag over my network connection stating, "No internet access" although it says connected. I don't know what could be
causing this problem, but if anyone could help I would appreciate it. I'm not extremely tech savvy, so I was hoping that
someone here could lend me a hand.

Thanks.

I would be willing to give any information necessary, if someone could offer any suggestions. My network is apparently connected, but I can't view any websites and I receive the yellow flag with the exclamation point, as I stated in my former post.

Have you checked Device Manager? To do that, click Start | Control Panel | Device Manager. Does every device have a "+" (plus sign) to the left of it, or do you see a black exclamation mark inside a yellow circle, or a red "X" anywhere? If you see either of those, which device has it?

And what are we talking about here? A PC or a notebook? If it's a notebook, it may have a switch located at the front of the machine with which you can enable/disable Wireless Access. Sony Vaio notebooks have them and it's quite easy to accidentally switch access off if you're not careful.
