Unidentified Network Windows 7

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a laptop which works fine at my workplace wirelessly, but when I try to connect to my home network it connects but then says Unidentified network, no internet access. I reset my router to default, still the same problem persists. I updated the drivers for the wireless card as well.

Weird thing is it works perfectly fine when connected directly to the router via ethernet cable, but doesn't work wirelessly. All other wireless devices connect with no problem such as my dad's laptop, smartphone, ps3 etc.

Any ideas?

Try booting to ubuntu and see if you can connect there. Ubuntu is a free linux live disc you can use. If it connects there then you can determine that the problem is with Windows and not with the hardware or router configuration.

Another thing to look at would be is the logs for the router. Look to see if you see any DHCP traffic. If you see only DHCP discover and offer but no requests or acks then you know that the computer is the issue and it's not wanting to take the DHCP lease being given to it by the router.
