Ok i narrowed it down to SP1 that is having the issue, I know that  SP1 has a lot in it. Is there any way to separate the parts of sp1 ?

Do you mean beak the exe down? If that's what you mean, you can extract the files of a exe to another folder with a zip program like 7zip.

It can be downloaded from download.com

If you use 7zip, you extract the files by opening 7zip, right click the exe, point to 7zip then select Extract files. Once you select extract files, select the folder you want to extract them to and select ok.

If you are keeping your machine up to date, SP1 removes old updates so that (a) disk free space after SP1 is the same as before and (b) winsxs is roughly the same size after as before.

In short, there is no disadvantage I can see to downloading the service pack and applying the whole thing.

I think instead of avoiding the problem we should fix the problem.  Updates are important because it makes your computer more safe from hackers.

Even if you go inside  the executable and change something CRC check of the program will consider the setup corrupted.  

Again would like to ask  you  do you see two network adapters after sp1 in device manager.

Another thing to try (assuming your computer is generally running) is to run cmd.exe with Run as Adminstrator and then at the command prompt, run SFC /SCANNOW. System File Checker (SFC) corrects protected system files and so may be able to help you here. ... Thinkpads_User

If SP1 was installed successfully then system readiness tool is not required.

Dstewartjr,

Thank you. This may be treading over old ground (I cannot tell).  Did you check your HOSTS file? It should not have any entries. Do you have proxy software installed or set in IE? Can you do a full reset of IE (Tools, Internet Options, Advanced)  .... Thinkpads_User

Right click on teredo tunneling pseudo-interface and uninstall it and restart the computer.
 Restart the computer and then check device manager.

I think the problem is caused by Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface. We could disable ipv6 so that your internet work but thats not the right way to do it.

If the above solution  does not work then do this

You can also try updating your network driver by following these steps:

    * Right click the Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface
    * Update Driver Software...
    * Browse my computer for driver software
    * Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer
    * Select from the list and update the driver.

I have the Teredo Tunneling device in my machine (including SP1) and it causes no problems. I also have IPv6 running. So if it is network, I think it must be something else.

I do agree with uninstalling and reinstalling the network interface card as that resets most of the network stuff.

As I noted, in normal circumstances, Teredo tunneling and IPv6 are integral parts of Windows 7 and cause no problems.

Nothing offered has worked, and so you are probably now down to the choice none of us like. It is probably time to backup your machine, reinstall Windows 7 and start over. I have had lesser problems than you and reimage for long term reliablilty and now recommend you consider the same. ... Thinkpads_User

What happens when you type ipconfig /all in command prompt.

You do not have to reinstall windows for such a small issue.

Click start- services.msc-launch services.msc and check dhcp service it should be started and automatic.

One would think so, except nothing we have offered has worked and we are starting to re-cycle some of the same solutions.

Your wireless IP looks OK. IP address looks correct and Gateway looks consistent. The nameserver works.

So two things:
1. Have you tried a wired connection? We never covered that question.
2. I had an Atheros card in my XP laptop. An Atheros card came in my Vista laptop (now Windows 7 laptop). I had to dump the Atheros card for an Intel card to get needed reliability.

1. Wired does the same thing.
2. If it was the Atheros card, then the wired connection should work.

Yes. In my current Thinkpad (Vista at the time) wired worked and the Atheros was flaky. So I changed it.

But since your wired connection does not work, I would ignore the Atheros issue for the time being.

So now an idle question (because I do not necessarily think it is relevant).

Why do you have a DNS Suffix Search list (wowway.com). I think wow is Wide Open West in Michigan. But I do not have that entry (or any entry like it). I depend upon my DNS entries.

Wowway.com is wide open west in Michigan, I have never changed that at all. It is the same way on my XP Pro laptop.

A half dozen or so posts back, I suggested the possibility of re-installing Windows 7 on your laptop.

Have you tried this machine on a different network?

If other machines work fine on this network (Wide Open West) and in addition your laptop does not work on any network (Wide Open West or any other) then I would return to the re-install suggestion.

ipconfig /all shows that wireless connection is good. and that you are connected. Now at this time were you able to connect to the internet using wireless????



Okay lets try this -go to device manager and disable the wireless driver.Restart the computer. Check in device manager to confirm wireless card is disabled. Now launch command prompt and type ipconfig /all
and tell me what you see. Make sure the ethernet cable is connected.

Since the symptoms are the same wired or wireless and on different networks, I think the ipconfig output will probably be the same (except in the wired section). ... Thinkpads_User
