I'm in the process of repairing a friends computer after it having contracted a virus posing as Avira Anti-Virus (ironic?)
Anyway, after eliminating the virus, the computer now will not connect to any network of any form. It recognises wired and wireless, starts connecting, goes to "renew IP address" and then immediately jumps to no connectivity. I think the problem is something to do with it trying to define its own IP address, instead of receiving one from the network, but I have reviewed every IP, DNS or Internet related setting I can find.
My question is whether any similar behaviour has been encountered by any of the wonderful people on this board, and how it was resolved. The troubleshooting steps I have taken are as follows:
Restart, enable, check windows zero config, windows wired config Check every setting I can find in wireless settings and ensure nothing is set to restrict IP Boot in safe mode, restricted service and diagnostic modes Two different wireless networks, two wired plus one ad-hoc. All failed.
