No Internet Access At Reboot


I installed windows 7 home. I have a netgear wireless home router wgt624v. 3 everything was working fine after setting up router. But when i reboot, it loses the router. I look under network before the reboot i see residential gateway under network infrastructure. And under network and sharing center i see netgear home under active networks. After reboot under network sharing center i see unidentified network along with netgear home network. To resolve this connection i have to disable then enable the network adapter. Then everything gets identified and i get access to the internet. I am at a total loss on what to do to fix this.

Wireless Internet Is Connected But No Internet Access

I just bought a new computer with os windows 7. As i was doing the set-up, it asked about the home wireless network and i identified it and entered the internet key. After the set-up was over, i cannot connect to the wireless network. It says connected and no internet access. It has the public icon and "unidentified network".

I have a "network error" window that keeps popping up that says "another computer on this network has the same ip address". I tried one of the solutions on this site to resolve it. I used the command prompt to release and renew the ip address and seems to not have worked. How can i get a valid ip address? And how can i make my computer recognize the home wireless network?

No Internet Access

I am having problems connecting to the internet via wifi with windows 7. The connection works with my desktop and apple laptop, but my new windows 7 laptop cannot connect regularly. I can connect to the local network, but it cannot then connect to the internet. I have restarted my computer multiple time, restarted my modem multiple time, restarted my router multiple times, used windows problem solver to check for the issue and it hasn't come up with anything. What should i do.

This is really annoying, especially since windows has advertised how easy it is to connect to wifi, yet that is not the case.

Internet Access

I'm yet again having problems connecting to the clients internet at work on various sites i work on, i 've manually set up the connection and when i try connecting wirelessly it finds the router but it wont acquire the network address

I can connect by hardwiring but i cannot view web pages, i've been in contact with their it support who had me look at a few things and that the ip address was different to what it should be and that he couldn't do any more without taking the laptop to him

I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what the problem could be, he seemed to lose interest with trying to fix it through constant emails

I have a windows 7 laptop which i can;t connect and a xp laptop that i used to be able to connect but i formatted it and now i'm having the same problem as the windows 7, i can connect both laptops to my home network without any problems whatsoever

Keep Losing Internet Access

I have a dell inspiron 530 computer and since windows 7 was installed i am having internet problems. Occasionally i will have access all day but often after a couple of hours internet access will drop. I phoned our provider and was told that everything looked good on their end. After powering off the wireless router and removing the ethernet cable, nothing happened but once the router was powered off and the blue cable from the router to the computer was removed then replaced access was restored.

An hour or so later i still had access (according to the light on the router) but once i pressed the space bar to bring up programs the light immediately went off and there was no internet access once more. Since as soon as i touched the space bar, the access ended, i assume there is some interconnectivity there.
Please advise

Cannot Access Public Internet

I have win7 pro installed on a laptop. I can access the public internet on my home network but not when connected on my corporate network. When connected to the corporate network, i can access intranet sites with no problem and can ping public sites (like microsoft.com) but just can't connect using any type of browser (tried ie8 and safari). Other o/s's (xp/vista) work fine on the network and connect to all websites. Have tried 2 different installs of win7 pro, the first being the factory oem load and also purchased a shrink wrapped copy and installed from a reformat.

There was no change, still can't access public internet sites on the corporate lan. It does work fine though when i connect to the same lan from home using our vpn client. I've tried turning off the firewall including my av software (trendmicro) with no luck. Any ideas what is blocking my web traffic?

Internet Connection Access Controller

Does anyone know a free program (from a company that can be trusted) to controller internet connection access? I want to be able to connect to the internet via password once per time i'm on the computer and have it disconnect automatically when i put the computer on standby or when it switches users. The reason i'm not doing this through the modem settings page automatically is because i also have a wireless connection that i want to always be on (so that all i have to do is connect wirelessly with no extra steps on the computer).

Cannot Connect To Mshome Network, But Get Internet Access

Ok, i was trying to allow a network drive to be used offline on my wireless hp laptop running win7. I have had connectivity to the internet, printers, drives and other pcs for over 4 months. All of a sudden, i cannot connect to the mshome network. I still get internet access, but i can not connect to my drives, my printers or my other pcs. I shut off the firewall and disabled the virus protection. It lists the devices in the map, but it will not connect.

Is there anyway to force a connection to my local home network :mshome: via win7? At least in xp you can set up a home network connection. All win7 seems to have is the home group.

Can't Share Internet To Lan From Huawei 3g Internet Adaptor

I am in severe need of some help because i am about to go crazy trying to figure this out. I recently upgraded my mom's pc to windows 7 and i'm having trouble getting her network back in order. She has a huawei mobile broadband adaptor (3g), model ec168, that i'm trying to use to supply internet to her laptop and xbox360 via her router. I had it working for the last year when windows xp was still on her pc, but since installing windows 7, i can't get it to work. I'm using the same settings as i was before but i get nothing.
Here are the settings that used to work:

1. I enabled internet connection sharing on her 3g adaptor and shared it to the lan adaptor.

2. I set the lan's ip address to "192. 168. 0. 1"/subnet mask was the usual "255. 255. 255. 0" and the default gateway/dns server fields were left blank (since the pc was serving as the gateway and the dns sever).

3. I turned off dhcp on the router and set the router's ip to "192. 168. 0. 10"

4. I left the xbox360 and laptop set to "automatic"

With these settings it worked like a champ on xp, but i get nothing on windows 7. Also, everytime i turn ics "on" through the 3g adaptor, it says that it has assigned the ip address of "192. 168. 137. 1" to the lan. Not sure why but it does.

Security Updates Stop Internet Explorer From Connecting To Internet

All ie7 security updates i install (cumulative or not) cause ie7 to not be able to connect to the internet. I have to uninstall the security update in order to connect to the internet. I have windows vista 64, ie7 and cable internet. I have checked for virus's several time using microsoft security essentials and malwarebytes antivirus and it always comes back clean. I am also running windows firewall and have put internet explorer on the exception list as well as turned it off to see if that was causing it from connecting and it did nothing. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

Error - Access Is Denied When Trying To Access A Shared Drive

I am getting an error "access is denied" when trying to access a shared drive on windows 7 machine that is not the specified "public" folder. How do i fix this?. I have done a fair bit of googling to no avail!

I have also made all he necessary network and sharing settings to allow connections. Other computers can access the "public" folder. But not the other shares that i set up. Although the other computer/s can 'see' them when viewing workgroup computers. Nb. All machines are on the same workgroup name.

Access Denied - Cannot Access The Outlook.ost File

We have installed windows 7 on a new machine. The user is a domain administrator and has full rights. When we try to open outlook, it says that it cannot access the outlook. Ost file and then freezes. We have moved the uac slider all the way to don't notify, granted explicit ownership to the c: users folder, given machine specific administrator rights to the user and the problem still persists.

When we log in as the hidden administrator though, everything works just fine for the same users exchange login. The user cannot even delete files on the network that belong to the user! Everything works fine when he logs in from another machine running xp. What are we missing here?

Spontaneous Reboot

My problem seems similar to a few previous posts, but not identical. It's simply this: after a period of use, my pc reboots itself. The period can be anything between five minutes and maybe an hour. This seems to have been happening since i upgraded from two to four gb of ram (both the bios and windows are recognizing the amount of memory correctly).

System is a dell xps-710, maybe two years old. Os is win 7 pro (32 bit); ram (as above) is 4gb; video is nvidia geforce 7900gtx; sound is soundblaster x-fi. As far as i can tell i have the most recent drivers, and device manager reports no problems.

And here's an odd side-effect: not every time but often enough, when the pc restarts it's 'forgotten' some of my cookies, notably my igoogle preferences.

I would be very grateful for any suggestions leading to a solution.

After Reboot Printer Will Not Print

I am with the guy about the troubleshooter not working half the time. I have a lexmark z715 printer. Installed windows 7 on a new partition on a new hard-drive fresh and it detected the printer and downloaded a driver that worked and all was fine. 2 days later i shut down the computer and didn't use it for a day.

Come back online and print spooler quit working. Ok looked in diagnostics and it says is running and on automatic. Did a complete unistall of the lexmark software and that hung for 4 hours till i shut it down. So manually i went in and deleted anything associated with lexmark registry included.

Next day i thought i would give it another try so i restart computer and do a search and it finds the printer and installs a lexmark z700-900 p700-900 driver and software from the windows update sight. Printer shows up and test page prints just like it should. I do a test and print off a microsoft word file and all is good. Reboot. Now i can see the printer. Can adjust the printer properties. Yet everything i send to the printer flashes in the print queqe for a sec and deletes saying it was printed. The size of these files are 8 bytes.

I am on a dual boot system
I have windows xp installed on a c drive.
I have a backupdrive d.
I have a backup partition on c called h.
I have a tetrabyte hard drive called g where windows 7 is installed.
I have a q9650 processor with 4 gig s of ram
I have a 9800gtx+ 1 gig video card.

I can print in xp fine the printer is hooked to the usb and it turns on and prints well.
In windows 7 and in windows xp when i shut the computer down the printer shuts off also.

I have installed the windows xp driver which actually worked also till reboot. I have installed the windows vista driver that is recommended from the updater and it would not even see the printer. I after cleaning out the registry again get windows update to find that driver and it worked until reboot and at least i can still communicate with the printer.

But still cannot print. Also want to add that ive spent a good 8 hours on this researching and this seems to be an issue with alot of people. Especially with windows 7 recognizing supposedly compatible devices. Seems someone was over optimistic or manufacturers deceived in placing their equipment on the list.

Oh also i have microsoft office installed and microsoft outlook which printed fine also before reboot. I am currently looking through the forums for any other things to do. I am figuring that probably going to have to upgrade my printer due to fact that it would only cost me 50 bucks more than ink for this one. But i should not have to if its on compatible list.

Desktop Items Gone After Reboot

So i came home from work, and when i unlocked my computer it was mentioning something about damaged section on one of my 1tb hdd's. Windows 7 asked for reboot, so i accepted. Pc rebooted and a black screen came up and started to repair something. After 5-6 steps done pc rebooted again and log in screen popped up. After that i logged in and pc fully booted i noticed that my desktop items wore missing. Win 7 asked for recovery, so i accepted that, hoping it would solve my problems. After 10 min, and the recovery done i rebooted my pc.

Pc wore fully booted and icons are still missing.
I tried some trouble shooting, and after 2hr's of reading and clicking in win 7 i gave up.

I can't left click on desktop to multiple mark ether.

I cant find anything wrong, and nether can the troubleshooting program.

I have right clicked my desktop > personalize > change desktop items.
They're all marked in the box.
I have tried to end explorer.exe and boot it up again.
I tried to run backup image.

And nothing seems to help me.
Win 7 is installed on a 150 gb 7200 rpm hdd.
It's a clean hdd with only win 7 installed on it.

From my prospective i have to format c: and do a clean install.

I'll add a picture of my desktop.

Sudden Slow Reboot

I have been 'optimizing' windows 7 (using msconfig, stopping non microsoft services, uninstalling 'bloatwear' etc). The laptop rebooted consistently within 55 seconds. Then all of a sudden it's over 2 minutes. Thinking i had broken something by constant tweaking i eventually did a complete reinstall booting from the installation cd, reinstalled all the programs i wanted (firefox, ccleaner, avg, eve and a couple of adobe products). All was fine - really fast reboot until windows finds the time to install all the updates (22 of them) released since my windows installation dvd was produced. It seems to be this update that suddenly more than doubles the reboot time. Any suggestions? I can list the updates if necessary.

Auto Reboot Problem

I have an acer aspire m7720. It has 6gb ram, a 920 intel core i7 and nvidia geforce gt230 with 64-bit windows 7. I have been using it for 6 months with no problems but lately, actually just today, it started to restart automatically after a few minutes. Sometimes it doesn't even reach the user login page and it will restart. The problem has gotten slightly better, i think, as it only restarts every hour or so now.

I don't think theres a blue screen of death, but i may be wrong, as i have already disabled the 'autorestart in the case of a system failure' option.

Looping Reboot After Upgrade

My windows vista went through an automatic upgrade last week. After installing the upgrade, i was required to reboot the machine in order finish the installation. When the machine reboots, it will show the microsoft logo and then come up with a screen stating that it is completing the installation. After approximately 10 seconds, it will restart the machine and go through the process again. It only stopped when i shut the machine off.

I have been able to get to a dos prompt and can access the hard drive so the hardware appears okay. However, when i try a system recovery, it will say it cannot find a recovery prior to when the upgrade was installed. Any suggestions on what i can do to try to short of reformatting the entire hard drive or reinstalling vista?

Update Unprompted Reboot

I run windows 7 prof. On my laptop and yesterday, the windows update service downloaded and partially installed some security updates. Then it asked me to save my work and reboot. I declined and delayed the notification by 4 hours. I continued doing this again and again and at the end of the day i put the laptop in hibernation. The next day (today) i turned it on again and continued my work for about ten minutes. Then all of the running applications closed themselves automatically, throwing all the unsaved documents away, after what the laptop automatically rebooted and finished installing the updates.

How on earth could this be possible?! Do i look like a slave of my os? I want to reboot my laptop whenever >i< want to, not whenever microsoft wants to!

What's going on and how can i fix this?
Thanks and sorry for my crappy english.

(By the way - i wanted to share my problem with the microsoft's technical support, so i went to the ms website, where i found out i just can't! The only option offered to me was to call them, but with a small note telling me they may want me to pay for it! What?! I've got the os legally - why would i have to pay if i wanted it to do its job properly?!)

Losing Setting On Reboot

I have been getting windows 7 all installed and set up over the last few days. Did a clean install on a box that had xp. At some point today, windows 7 started losing a lot of my personal setting on every reboot. I have no idea if i flipped a setting that would do this or if something is scrooged. Examples of what is lost are my settings in ie and firefox (i use both browser as required by my job). The customization of the tool bars and which ones are displayed are all reset to defaults for both browsers on reboot. Also i lose all of my saved id/password for various web sites. I am not sure what all else is being lost, but do any of you have an idea of what might cause this?

Splash Screen To Immediate Reboot

Have a machine running windows 7 enterprise 64-bit. After waking from sleep, computer froze, and needed a power cycle to reboot. Windows tries to boot, and during splash, a brief flash (<<1 second) and back to post. Next boot, hit f8, and no option for safe mode, just recovery console. Claims a volume corruption, but is unable to repair. Using cmd line, run fdisk/chkdisk and it says everything is fine.

Reboot, goes again in recovery console, claims volume corruption, can't fix. Also to note are none of my system images or restore points are visible. Boot from cd, run windows recovery environment, fixmbr and all that jazz, and it gives no errors. Reboot, windows splash, fast bsod, and back to post. Pressing f8 never gets me to safemode options, only the recovery console, which claims volume corruption.
 
Remove drive, and attach it as an external device on another machine, run chkdsk, scans, you name it, all show up as perfect. Run western digital diagnostics on the drive, finds no errors. Stick the drive in an external hd hardware checker (supersonix), and also shows up as perfect. Drive back as boot drive, either boots to recovery console - which reports un-fixable volume corruption, or normally, which gives the splash screen to post error.

No error logs are written, or at least they are not saved when i browse through the disk. The video card is an nvidia, using the ms update supplied drivers. Being that i never have the option to boot in safe mode, and f8 takes me only to the recovery console, is there anyway i can boot the normal installation with limited drivers? Or does anyone have any good suggestions to try?

Ip Address Changes On Router Reboot

Running windows 7 cabled to wireless router. Occasionally broadband "drops out" and when rebooting router ip address for wireless printer (epson stylus office tx610fw) changes form 10. 1. 1. 2   to 10. 1. 1. Something depending on how many laptops are connected. As a result i have to go into control panel, hardware & sound select the printer then via 'settings' select the printer and add it manually with new ip address. Obviously irritating as other family members, despite printed instructions, cannot manage it. Please, is there anyway to 'lock' the ip address so it doesn't change?

Installation Reboot Loop

So after having a billion problems with my laptop after the first install of win7 home (its a "free upgrade" version for the new asus i bought before win7 came out) i started to just ignore my computers problems. Today i bought the sims 3 ambitions and tried to install it. It didn't work, so i tried to uninstall all sims versions to reinstall. The computer wouldn't let me uninstall it.

So i figured maybe i didn't upgrade win7 the right way, popped in the disk again and waited 2 1/2 hours (install where it supposedly keeps your files) to find out that "the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed.

To install windows, click "ok" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation. "So i did. I clicked ok and waited. All it does now is say "setup will continue after restarting your computer" then it restarts and says "press any key to boot from cd or dvd" then takes me to a boot manager with windows 7 or windows setup rollback, automatically chooses for me.

Then the starting windows page comes up, then goes to "setup is starting services" and it glitches a bit, then straight back to the error message above. How can i fix this?! Im close to throwing my laptop. At least it kind of worked before and definitely worked before windows 7!
