cannot access internet with Intel 6235 and Comcast wireless router

I installed a new Comcast wireless router and now I cannot get on the internet on my Windows 7 Pro laptop.

All other wireless devices connected to the new Comcast wireless router without issue.   All other laptops use a Dell wireless card.  This laptop has an Intel 6235 wireless adapter.  I ran the network troubleshooter and it gave me a “cannot get DNS information” message.

I assigned a static ip and the DNS server names manually and was able to get on the internet.

Any ideas why I cannot get on the internet when wireless card is set to “Automatically Obtain” ip and DNS information?

I would power cycle the comcast modem, and your laptop (set to dhcp/ auto ip/dns before you restart) and try again.

If still not working, try to compare the start > run > cmd > ipconfig /all
output of both the working and non-working laptop (or copy paste results here).

i'm assuming you were able to connect to the internet. Did you create a new SSID  for comcast or you used the same from before, if so delete the wireless network from windows and rejoin. Update the wireless card drivers, as stated by Kimputer, check your ip settings when connected. Are you getting something like 169.254.x.x?

I found the solution on a Google search, see below.

Changed the following settings on the wifi card properties.

1.        802.11n Channel Width for 2.4... 20 Mhz Only
2.         Bluetooth AMP... Disabled
3.         Fat Channel Intolerant... Enabled
4.         Roaming Aggressiveness... 1. Lowest
