I just moved and had to switch from a wired Internet connection to wireless. I am now having problems. It's not due to the router because tablets and other laptops can connect.

The issue is with my Windows 7 computer. The IPv4 and IPv6 show no Internet access and media state is enabled. I tried disabling the firewall and nothing changed. It connects but has a little triangle with a ! in it.

My router is a Belkin G MIMO and my wireless adapter is a Belkin Play.

Is the issue for your PC or tablet? Either way, is it built in wireless (and is it switched on) or an external dongle. Try an IPCONFIG and ensure that 'media is disconnected' is not shown. Does your wireless device appear in device manager. More information would be nice! – Dave Oct 26 '12 at 14:03
If you open up cmd prompt and type ping NameOfOtherPCONNetwork, do you get a reply? – David Oct 26 '12 at 17:27
