|<div style="color:blue">You should take a look at the My Network Places by rightclicking it and choose properties.|
You should see one LAN Area Connection and one Wireless Connection.
Both shouldn't have any number in brackets like (1), (2) a.s.o.
If you have such numbered entries, windows may get confused, because it shows up only e.g. LAN Area Connection (2), but still have entries in the registry for LAN Area Connection (1) and LAN Area Connection (without any number).
So the old configuration is still stored in the registry.
What windows does is, it uses parts of the old not shown entries of the configuration and parts of the shown entry e.g. LAN Area Connection (2), which mostly ends up in no network connection.
Report back, if you have numbered entries, shown in the My Network Places.</div>
From what I can remember about it, (it's not with me now, I'm going back over to work on it some more in an hour or so) there were some ridiculous numbers by it. It was Wireless number 7. How it goes is there are two Wired connections (Both Disabled), that one is real and the other I'm not sure what it was. A wireless NIC Card that they never ripped out (Disabled), and a Belkin Wireless N USB Adapter. The Wireless NIC still worked (least in Linux) Just neither one worked in windows. Which is part of the reason I'm confused why it won't work on ANY router (as I said, I tried an unsecured one in windows and had no luck, but went through in Linux). I think it "could" be a corrupted WinSocks Registry key or something among those lines. I'll double check the router's settings as well. I know the DHCP is on, because as I said, the laptop works fine. Could there be a possibility that the router "may" have copied the MAC address of the laptop as an only connection as to prevent another PC from connecting. But even if, it wouldn't explain other routers. I'm gonna try another TCP/IP reset when I get there.
