I have 2 laptops, one with Vista one with Windows 7. The Vista laptop connects to the internet with no problems, but the 7 one won't and I get an IP address issue. I've researched it and tried doing everything I've seen. I've tried going to the services tab and looking for the number thing and couldn't find it. I've tried setting a manual IP addresses and nothing. The only thing I have not tried is the driver thing for the network adapter. Is there any other way to fix this without doing that?

Can you try editing your post so that it is properly spelt and punctuated and add some formatting. It's very hard to read in it's current state, making it hard to work out what your problem might be. – ChrisF Jun 19 '11 at 15:38
Also, if you are getting specific error message, please include it – bbaja42 Jun 19 '11 at 15:49
We need some more clarity here. What exactly do you mean by, "I've tried going to the services tab and looking for the number thing" and "the driver thing for the network adapter." – Kirk Jun 19 '11 at 16:50
