Hello.

I recently had to re-install Windows from a start up disk. Since I have re-installed windows Vista home basic edition 32-bit, service pack 1
I cannot connect to the internet through wireless connection. I have another laptop in the house which connects fine.

If I use the LAN cable I can connect no problem.

I have searched lots of posts and tried updating the wireless driver.

I disabled my firewall.

I tried setting properties in IP/TCP to automatically obtain IP etc.

Here is an ipconfig/all log.

Hello


First I think you should try removing both IPV4 and IPV6 and reinstalling them.

If you are sure they're installed correctly try registering the dns.

Go to start --> Run -->> Type cmd.exe and run it as an administrator

Inside cmd.exe type

ipconfig /registerdns

Let me know if that works to solve your problems, if it doesn't help post back and i've got a few other solutions for you.


And i should note that this will only help if you can connect to the network and just not the internet.

You say that you recently installed windows you most likely have a driver issue.Go to the manufacturers website and get the drivers you need for your wireless card.Or try this drivermax most likely you have other drivers that you need to install.

Can you post a screen shot of your device manager?



To post a screen shot.
Use the snipping tool:
WIN-Key | type SNIP | ENTER | drag the cursor over the area to snip | save as a PNG file | attach the png to your next post.
