My pc was slowing down so I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows 7. All went well except one thing internet on wifi doesn't work. The rest of the toys in the house still connect through the router but the laptop does not. If the lan cable is plugged in the internet works. I used this to find the latest drivers for my laptops wifi card. Through the wifi I can enter the router settings but not externally to the internet. I'm thinking its something simple in the security setting Please help.

Did you install ALL drivers including the chipset driver? Open device manager - any yellow or red symbols?

I'm a bone head. Shouldn't have started that so late. Windows 7 64 bit operating system and I first used the 32 bit drivers all is well with the world now.
