So here is my dilemma and problem that I am having. I am currently having issues with an HP Envy DV7-7250us Laptop which has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 card installed(factory card). This is a 3 year old laptop, and has had issues with wifi since was taken out of the box. Took it apart a few days ago and finally realized part of the issue could be the antennas. One of the antenna cables was damaged from the factory and was never connected to the card due to the connector being damaged, however this was the auxilliary cable. Prior to this though it was working well enough. Meaning it had a stable connection to my router and I could access the internet. However after I reformatted it and installed windows 7, it fails to connect properly to my network. It shows that it is fully connected, but it does not have access to the internet. Windows says its a problem with my gateway, but it is not cause I have many other devices connected and they are fine. Its not the firewall cause I have that disabled. Ipconfig shows everything is fine, but I get 100% packet loss when I attempt a ping. I thought maybe replacing the antennas might fix the problem but I installed a new one and it hasnt fixed the problem. Its not the card either, because it works when installed in my other laptop. Anyone have any ideas?
I have attached a screenshot of ipconfig showing that it has a connection.
