I have just restored a windows vista laptop. Now it cannot access the internet using wifi connection. The laptop connects to the router and i assigned an IP number. My windows 7 pc can access the internet using wifi. I have tried to compare the result of ipconfig /all And and default gateway and dhcp server is the same. However if i ping the router (192.168.1.1)

Im getting response from 192.168.1.8 is not accessible 192.168.1.8 is the ip of the laptop

I have installed sp1 and sp2.

Can you post the ipconfig readout of both computers? You might also try 'ipconfig /release' followed by 'ipconfig /renew' in a cmd window that has Run as Administrator rights. Also restarting the router and the computer to clear caches might not be a bad idea. –  MaQleod Apr 29 '12 at 19:48
    
1.) can you ping 127.0.0.1 ? 2.) Check your subnet mask and gateway address again. 3.)What wifi sec are you using? please update this in the your question. –  onxx Apr 30 '12 at 21:10
