    Yes I know this, but you aren't following the directions I posted. We need to see the ipconfig/all.

    Have you been to the Dell site to obtain the latest Windows 8 drivers for your Dell Inspiron 1750 ?

    Dell does not support Win8 on the 1750; only MS has drivers.

    Well according the ipconfig you have a valid IP and should be online. I'm assuming that you have entered two valid DNS servers into your routers set up page?

    This is a strange problem, you are connected but it's showing that you aren't for some reason, is this wireless network secured?

    Do you have any third party anti virus or firewall's installed on this system?

    I am only using WEP and the router works fine on Win7 and XP and has been online for almost 3 years. If connecting to the internet only, Win8 works fine. All programs came from MS. Once I had Comodo firewall installed, but removed it; I just ran CCleaner and there was not any latent issues from Comodo in the registry.

    Strange is right...

    Ok with WEP security Windows 8 will most likely not deal with that very well. You need to change to WPA2 security with AES encryption in your routers set up page. None of the Windows 8 drivers will work properly when using WEP security.

    As for Comodo firewall, you may need to uninstall that using the special uninstall tool, CCleaner may not work for that.
