THE WIFI MAYBE 100% BUT THE PROBLEM MAYBE THE ANTIVIRUS PROGRAM OR AND THE FIREWALL STOPPING IT FROM COMMUNICATING WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD.
SETS TO CHECK EACH OF THE FOLLOWING PLACES IN THE COMTROL PANAL

1 CHECK DEVICE MANAGER
2 CHECK THE NETWORKING AND SHARING
3 CHECK SECURITY CENTER
4 CHECK PROBLEMS AND REPORTING
5 CHECK SYNC CENTER
6 CHECK THE WIRELESS DEVICE FOLDER
7 CHECK THE WINDOWS DEFENDER
8 CHECK THE WINDOW FIREWALL

YOU ARE LOOKING FOR ANY TYPE OF MARKS THAT ARE NOT GREEN, GREEN IS OKAY *** AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS BAD***

DOUBLE CLICK ON DEVICE RESOLVE YOUR SELF IF YOU CAN ************ SOME TIME THE INTERNET EXPLOROER WILL ALLOW YOU TO USE THE INTERNET TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE WITH THE SYSTEM AND ASK YOU TO REBOOT WHEN IT IS FIXED.

Can't connect to internet


I had a simlar problem. After spending 10 hours on the phone with the isp and the router company I gave up and called the geek squad at best buy. They came out to the house for $110.00 and it took him and hour. I went away for the weekend, had the same problme again. Called the Geek Squad again, he came out, spent another four hours fixing the problem, and it did not cost me any additional money:) I've been surfing smoothly ever since!!

If the Geek Squad came out to transfer your data for you they should guarantee their work. Call them back and have them show you how to access it.
