Hi Joseph,.

I see that you can not connect to the Internet after reinstalling vista. I'll help you with this problem.

1. What is the brand and model of the computer?

2 have you installed all necessary drivers after installing vista?

3. do you format the disk hard while re - install vista?

4. who is the ISP?

I suggest you to refer to this article and check if that helps.

  • Cannot connect to internet after auto update under Vista.

    Original title: System shows the connection, but cannot connect

    After an automatic update in Vista in mid-August I can no longer connect to the internet.  My system tray shows that I am connected but I can't.  I'm on a DSL wireless connection with a desktop computer (one does not) and a laptop with XP that always works very well.  I re - configure the modem, uninstalled, and reinstalled the wireless card, has run an anti-virus in safemode, uninstalled the Qwest connection network and re-installed AND uninstalled the update to Vista.  I even tried the system restore to an earlier time.  Nothing.  Internet diagnosis says that it cannot solve the problem.  I have read other forums on the UN-checing proxy settings but mine have not been verified.  I re-set my settings IE8 by default.  Uninstall protection against viruses...

  • Apps de Metro de Windows 8 Pro cannot connect to internet after the first reboot


    I have recently installed Windows 8 Pro x 64 OEM, and I noticed after awhile that my store, Stocks, Weather, News,... cannot connect to the internet more. However, all other applications work.
    Even more strange, after installing all the updates, I noticed that I can navigate with my IE on the desktop, but not a single party of metro?
    Long story short, after several relocations (refresh option), I've noticed as a result of behavior:
    1. during the first start after installation, EVERYTHING WORKS PERFECTLY. I can browse, look at the weather, everything store.
    2. when I restart the computer and any time after that, is STOP WORKING.
    Another thing I noticed was that his (SoundBlaster Audigy) card didn't work the first time, but after rebooting, it worked, so I guess something happened after the first reboot?
    It was a clean install (OEM version) and Windows are activated, and I tried signing in with or without live account (no difference).
    Help me please, since this is quite irritating :(


    I finally found the problem.
    The invisibility of the active network has pushed me towards the answer.
    biggest mistake I made was using the option refresh windows, because it was useless for my troubleshooting.
    By mistake I chose my first install, public internet connection and the course of the updating of the system did not ask see me that.
    In defining the private connection after clean installation (No refresh, brute force reinstall) makes everything work after reboot and completely solved the problem for me.
    Why the network does not disappear after reboot? It's something weird, and it shouldn't happen!
    The resolution of network problems found no problem, because the internet connection worked, but he had no problem with no network also appear or metro apps does not.
    This should be corrected, as it would be a great help in this scenario.
    TL; DR: Make sure you set your connection on the private sector, or windows becomes crazy and your metro applications do not work (and I also noticed that visual studio could not deploy projects in this scenario, but that's another story).

  • Cannot connect to internet after Windows Update

    I was not able to connect to the internet after windows updates 7 of 14 October 2010, unless I have to restore the system to October 13.

    Hi jlm00926,

    ·        Update that you installed before the problem?

    ·        Are you able to connect to the internet properly now?

    You can set up your computer in a clean boot state. Subsequently, download & install the update manually from the Microsoft Download Center.

    Clean boot will start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs and helps eliminate software conflicts.

    The following link has steps showing how to perform the clean boot:

    Note: Please make sure that the computer is configured to start as usual according to step 7 of the article: how to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • Cannot locate the network after reinstalling Vista

    I just had to reinstall vista (based on the recommendation of the forum do how can I install/uninstall anything one way). Now I can't connect to the internet, or my network. I have a laptop Dell Inspiron 1525.

    It seems that I reinstalled the network adapter - at least when I started there was no category "network adapters" in the Device Manager, and now he has one with Marvell Yukon 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller under it.

    Thanks to a different compurter I downloaded the thing Dell told me to download when I typed in my Service tag.

    Also, I downloaded and installed the service packs 1 and 2 since for Vista, since I knew that they were on my orginal OS.

    In looking at the network and sharing Center, it seems that network discovery is turned off.  I tried to turn it on, but nothing happens.

    Any ideas on what to try next?

    In addition, I don't know if it's relevant or not, but when I reinstalled my OS, I thought everything would be gone, but the memory is always at the same level as it was before resettlement.

    Much obliged,



    Did you follow the directions of Dell to reinstall Vista?

    You do not say if yoyu used their disks or you have used the recovery Partition to do.

  • D7000 will not connect to internet after reinstalling


    We moved our D7000 modem router from one room to the other and now it does not connect to internet at all. I spoke with our ISP and everything is fine on their end. I connected the modem and reset our ISP connection & the password, and the ISP did the same thing, without effect. The phone line has been tested, it's ok. I swapped the cables to make sure that they are not defective. I moved the modem to return to the old location, but now it does not work there either.

    WiFi seems to be ok and all our devices (phones, tablets, computer) recognize the wireless network and modem, but there is simply no internet connection. It is bizzarre! Nothing has changed, there is no new hardware, no updates or upgrades, the ISP is always the same, the only thing that differs is the location, in the same House.

    The lights on the router modem are as follows:

    Food - white

    Internet - amber

    DSL - off

    WiFi - white

    Any ideas what I could try to make it work again? Should I do a factory reset on it? This could be the cause? Move a modem do not stop working. We only had since November so it isn't old yet, and it has been working fine so far.

    Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!



    It has been a while now, but I thought I would update this for anyone interested or affected by the same problem we did.

    After weeks of back and forth with the ISP and try and test anything and everything we could think, including the replacement of the D7000 in store warranty (not just once but), and nothing is helping, the ISP finally filed a foul for us and sent a CET. And what do we know? There was a flaw in the riding of Telstra which he had found, and which caused our internet connection fails. After that which has been set, we are online again. The line still falls here and there and the phone line is cute, but at least we are connected.

    And now I'm fighting with the ISP for refund during all these weeks we were disconnected while they refused to be a mistake for us and have someone out. Time for a new ISP, I think!

    Hope this helps someone else with the same problem there.

    Thank you


  • Connect to Internet after reinstalling

    I had to reinstall XP Pro to my mesh recovery disk. (blue screen of death) Is no longer an icon in the network window, so I can't set up or connect to Internet even activate XP again. How can I fix?


    You are probably just need to install drivers for your Ethernet card and perhaps other parts also. If you are not provided with a CD of drivers by mesh, you could be in trouble, mesh downloads site is not available, it was "closed until further notice."

    If you have the driver CD, it can "autoplay" and install all the drivers for you. If this is not the case, there is probably folders separated on the CD for each type of driver installation.

    If you do not have a driver CD, or have problems with it, let us know for more asitance. If you have the CD but can not get the drivers installed, please provide information on what you're trying and what happens when you try it.

  • Cannot connect to internet after a reboot before you uninstall and then reinstall the network card. (After the upgrade to Windows 7 from Vista)

    This problem started immediately after the upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) to Windows Vista Ultimate (32 bit).  Again, I want to remind that I never had this problem before installing Windows 7.

    -After a reboot, I am presented with the impossible to connect the network indicator (yellow triangle with!) in the task bar.  (It was how I was welcomed after the installation of Windows 7 is said by the way).

    -The only way I found to regain connectivity is to uninstall and reinstall the network via the device manager card, date at which the computer always successfully connects and remains connected until the next reboot.

  • XP systems cannot connect to internet after updates applied over the weekend (10/29 - 10/31)

    Systems: Dell Optiplex 740

    Operating system: XP Pro, SP3.  Connected to the AD network.

    Antivirus: Symantec Endpoint Protection

    : Systems imaged with Symantec Solution Suite 2.5, running ghost console client, run office 2007, LotusNotes email client, Adobe Acrobat 9.0 pro, no odd/specialty software.

    The following hotfixes have been automatically downloaded and installed this weekend.  (The domain value autoinstall updated policy)

    KB2296011 KB2345886 KB2360937, KB2378111, KB2387149, KB982132, KB979687, KB981957, KB2279986, KB2360131, KB2418241

    System ran perfectly before the updates above being installed, applied.


    1 - log on to the network, sometimes connection takes hours (2-3) to load a new or existing profile.  This seems random, as some profiles allow an immediate connection.
    2 - the system does not stop.  Even if gone for 16 hours, it never completes the task.
    3. can access local systems within the network through a UNC path, but very very slow.  Can ping anywhere, ping also solves dns IP (,, etc.).  Can't access a Web page than IE.  Curiously, install google chrome or any other browser allows web access - never through IE, however.
    4. can not view or change the connections of the network adapters.  Hangs and never completed the task.
    5 USB devices not already connected to the workstation before above patches do not load/install, even if they were previously on this system.  For example, a USB key that worked Friday does today.
    6 - when the screensaver activates, system is not sometimes recover.
    7 - safe mode with networking will run without problem.  IE works, connects to the web.  No hardware problem, no connectivity issues.

    Here is what I have tried, in all possible and combination orders:

    1. remove each patch listed above.
    2. remove each patch listed above AND any referenced patch.
    3 reinstall the SP3.
    4. remove each piece of software other than the operating system.
    5 - disable all services that do not work in safe mode with network.
    6. Remove and reinstall the NIC drivers.

    I am at a loss.  I have an image before the explosion, and it works perfectly until these patches are downloaded and installed.  After the restart, bam.  So, I can easily reproduce the problem.

    Does anyone have any ideas or clues as to what to try?

    Error message after you install an update of Windows Internet Explorer from Windows Update or from Microsoft Update: "cannot display the Web page":

    If tweaking your third-party provider (i.e., Symantec Endpoint Protection) the firewall settings don't help, try the following:

    NB: Now you're "working without a net": no to ANYTHING else online (e.g., navigation, reading e-mail, chat) until you have completed step #5 below.

    2 Uninstall "a security update for Windows Internet Explorer 7 (or 8) (2360131)" [or "for Windows XP security update (2360131)" If IE6] via Add/Remove Programs (make sure the box show updates at the top right) and reboot.
