Help please! Internet was working fine this morning, then stopped just now.

I have a Windows 7 computers connected via Wifi to my BT Homehub.

Wireless icon in system tray has a yellow exclamation mark on it and cannot connect to the internet on any browser.

Have tried a window restore to a couple of days back and have restarted numerous times, nothing has worked.

Please help!

Go into Device Manager and try updating your wireless driver.

Perhaps a silly question but, with the atrocious weather in some areas, is it possible that flooding has knocked out broadband in the BT systems somewhere in your area?

Your "ipconfig /all" details are fine, but only show the Local Area Network details and use the Router's address as the DNS Server, so even that doesn't give a clue as to whether the router has an internet connection.

If you can get into the router's configuration settings (by typing 192.168.1.254 into your browser), the Status page might tell you if internet access has been lost.

If you've lost internet access, how are you managing to post forum messages?

Internet is working fine as using my mac on LAN at the moment through same router.

Also have fine wifi access on my iphone and xbox. So the Win7 desktop is specifically the problem.

Can you connect the desktop by ethernet cable to see if that works?
