Before answering, I've already done the following:

1.) I already Installed the latest wireless Adapter Driver.

2.) I already did the ifconfig /renew or release.

3.) I already did the ipfconfig/ all.

4.) I've already switched the protocol 4 and 6 from static to automatic

5.) All my drivers are working, including the USB driver and the wireless adapter driver.

6.) I am connected to a network.


When I run the troubleshooter, this is what it looks like:



Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Exactly what do you mean when you say that the adapter "does not work?"


How can you assert that you are connected...yet the adapter "does not work?"

I mean on the bottom right corner in the windows 7 OS there's the wifi symbol. I see full bars with a yellow explanation mark. Meaning, I am connected, yet when I go on google or whatever it displays a page stating "No internet Connection".


I am sure I am connected to a network because I entered the password and I see the wifi symbol with full bars, yet when I go on google chrome or firefox it says I have no connection and can't get anywhere on the internet.

 Sorry, I should have been more clear on that, my wireless adapter connects to the internet on other computers and it works just fine, yet this one particular computer, I can't connect to the internet. But the Wireless Adapter works just fine.
