Wireless connected but "No Internet Access"

By james862 ·
i have a 64 bit windows 7 desktop that uses a D-link (DWA-140) wifi usb dongle. It worked fine at another house but at home where my whole family uses the wireless with no problems (d-link router) it will connect but says no internet access. I have tried:
-uninstalling AVG
-refreshing and renewing ip adress using ipconfig
-reseting router
-uninstalling and reinstalling wifi dongle drivers
-forcing plustnet's dns adress
-disabling TCP/IPv6
-turning firewall off

i can happily connect to the portable wifi hotspot on my phone ....
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

Have you tried removing the network connection in Control Panel?

Might need to remove the connection, then re-add it as a new wireless connection,
let Windows rediscover the dongle and you WiFi.

Have you got some sort of maximum number of connections allowed on
your WiFi? Does your dongle work with any other device? Last I can
think of off the top of my head is maybe a DHCP server on the dongle is
conflicting with your WiFi broadcast??

Try resetting the tcp/ip stack from an elevated command prompt.

type: netsh interface ip reset.

Restart the computer when it finishes.

Check your network connection setting to make sure it is set to automatically acquire ip and dns address. If it is set correctly you can try the following commands from an elevated commands prompt.

netsh int ip uninstall . Restart computer

netsh int ip install. Restart computer

Also, check your router to see if it is set to hand out enough ip address.
