Hello,

Try this 1

If you have installed Windows 7 then make sure that you have installed your

network drivers. You can download the drivers from the manufactures website.

If the drivers are installed then follow the below instructions

Click on Start -->In search box, type cmd and press Enter.

"Command Prompt" will be opened. Now enter the below command

ping 127.0.0.1 --> Press Enter.

Let me know if you are getting a "Reply from ...." messages or not

Also let me know your router brand name and model number.

Good Luck
