Solved

Laptop connects to wireless router but has no internet access. Running Windows 7.

Read numerous threads but nothing has helped. My system restore is not working, so that's not an option. Already tried to connect directly via ethernet wire but the same thing happens. Other computers in house all working fine. I've uninstalled my virus protection and turned off the firewall, but same result. Any other suggestions?

  1. its might be your internet service provider do you have internet service anywhere else in the house
  2. Best answer
    did you try manually configuring IP into your network adapter?
    try updating all the drivers for your wifi and ethernet adapters.
    also, resetting your router to factory defaults may help...
    something may have gone wrong on the dhcp pool / table on your router
    if not, i bet freshly formatting your PC with the issue may do the trick lol
    but let us know!

    I did update the drivers. Router is fine as everything else in the house works fine. Odd thing is the computer will connect to my iphone's hot spot though.
