So I just "upgraded" to Windows 7. I did the upgrade in place, coming from Vista. That is to say, I performed the upgrade without a reformat - there was no backing up of files or settings or anything involved except that which the upgrade CD did automatically.
However, now I don't have Internet and I can't get my monitor settings to change. But this thread is about my Internet problems, so I'll describe those.
The first time I booted into Windows 7, I was able to open firefox and perform one search on google. After that I got some weird access denied dialog or something that I'd never seen before, firefox crashed, and I lost all internet connectivity and haven't been able to get it back.
I'm a computer engineering major, so I've already been through the usual steps - reinstalling my network adapter driver, resetting the connection using ipconfig from the command prompt, checking router ocnnections and such. I've determined it's a problem with my computer - other computers can get connectivity if I just plug the same cable into them.
So, besides resetting the connection and reinstalling the NIC drivers, what else could I do to fix this?
Thanks for any help you can provide
