Installed Windows 7... Installed driver for LInksys wireless network card.

I can connect to my home network, but not the internet, any suggestions?

I've looked all over the internet, but nothing works. I've unplugged the router, reinstalled the driver, entered a specific IP address, ipconfig renewed, still no connection!!

what to do?

so wierd!
there was a tiny really fast power outage at my house last week - i mean like a second long maybe and i got the same thing.
what i did was i portforwarded (forwarded my port)
you know what i did it and right after i did that i can see the network was okay and i could access internet.
give it a quick shot.
i will try and reach back with instructions - its just that im not home right now.
i just noticed that you mentioned that you DID try to change the ip address....
did you also make the change in your settings in your router?
