Hello,

I have a problem that when I try to connect to my new router that Comcast sent me it just says that its "identifying.." then it says its a "Unidentified Network" then under it it says I have no internet access.(Has a full connection) Other devices cannot connect to it either. I have a different router connected next to it currently that I have had for a while and my laptop connects to it fine. I recently got another router that was not from Comcast and it basically has the same problem where it says "No internet access" but full connection. Any help would be appreciated! If you need anymore information ill get it. Windows 7 is my OS

~Thanks

Thank you
It will be ok.....

When you made the connection into the WIFI, did you set up the network location, like Public, Home, Work? You must tell your OS how to use the new WIFI.

Let us know!

Destroy that network connection and build another one. Mark it as Home!
