I have a win server 2008 and two laptops as workstations on the domain. One of the laptops cannot get out to the internet, while the other two computers do. The computer that cannot is showing that the wireless connection is connected with excellent strength. This problem started after I installed and ran a full scan of malwarebytes which found malware like appbario, conduit....and I removed everything it found. When I rebooted, the computer ran scan disk because it thought it had disk errors. Scan disk finished and the computer started up. Then it told me that I had limited connectivity for wireless and said the computer could not obtain an ip address. The wireless router has DHCP enable, but it wasn't giving out an address to this computer, but it does give out an address to the other computer. In my wireless network connection setting, I changed it from obtain an IP address automatically, to a static IP address. This fixed the limited connectivity problem and the connection is showing as connected with excellent strength but it still won't bring up any web pages as if it is not connected to the internet, no matter which browser I use.

I also cannot remote desktop into the other computers and I could right before this.
problem started.

Does anybody know what the problem might be?

Hi

Can you ping outside to anything inside and outside the network?
Is your default gateway set correctly?

possible solutions:
Could be something blocking your outside access.
Try to disable firewall.
Try to reset your browser to factory defaults
Try to reset the Wifi router (leave it off for 10 seconds) and have the laptop configured for DHCP, what is he getting from the router?

In addition to the above, run TCP/IP repair to see if that helps recover from the virus.

Here is a Microsoft Support article to run TCP/IP repair including a FixIT for Windows 7.

I tried IE and that at least gave me the connection troubleshooting wizard and it told me that an LSP called Adspeak was the problem. I let it remove it and now I can get on the net and I can RDP into the other computers. So it looks like this Adspeak thing used to be between my computer and reaching the internet and malwarebytes removed it. So if you want to respond with some sort of brief explanation about Layered Service Providers and maybe Adspeak and what it was doing, I can give you the points. Thanks.
