I'm not sure what you mean by install.

Is this connectivity problem both with wireless and Ethernet or just one or the other ?

Other than network adapter drivers and antivirus programs, DNS servers can impact connectivity.

I use Level3's DNS servers instead of my ISPs which are 209.244.0.3 and 209.244.0.4

You can try this to see if it makes any difference by going Start - type ncpa.cpl and press enter - right click on whichever adapter you are using and select Properties.

Uncheck the box for (TCP/IPv6) as that can cause connectivity issues then click on (TCP/IPv4) and select Properties.

Check the lower button for Use the following DNS servers and in the top row of boxes type 209.244.0.3

Tab down to the lower row and type 209.244.0.4

Check the box to Validate settings upon exit - OK - Close and that will invoke the troubleshooter which should come back as no problems found and then reboot to see if you have the same problem.

If using wireless and you have a yellow alert on its taskbar icon, right click on it and select Troubleshoot problems to see what it reports.

"Troubleshooting could not identify the problem."
"-> Explore additional options"
"-> Close troubleshooting"

Was this with the wireless symbol in red ?

If the machine is now connecting then it will come back with that message.

Can you go start - type eventvwr and press enter when it comes up.

When Event Viewer has read the data, click on Error then on View All Instances of This Event in the lower right pane then look for any time stamped adapter or DHCP errors - click on them where more info will appear in the pane below.

Can you go Start - type devmgmt.msc and press enter when it comes up.

In Device Manager click on View/Show hidden devices and expand Network adapters - right click on the wireless one and select Properties.

What does it report for its status ?

Right click on the wireless one and select Properties where it should give its status.

While you are in Device Manager look for any yellow alerts, red crosses or black downward pointing arrows.
