    No internet access when I booted up this morning. Running Win7

    -All other network devices OK. Not the network
    -Turning off firewalls no effect
    - Win7 network diagnostics no help
    - Intel Network diagnostics OK
    - Can ping 127.0.0.1 but not remote computer
    -select ip and dns set to automatic
    -most of the time sharing center says I have internet access. But sometimes I get the yellow triangle.

    I've gone as far as I can go. Something is blocking connect but I can't figure out what. Any suggestions appreciated.

    Maybe you got a driver update; try rolling back the driver on your NIC (Network Interface Card). You probably have at least two; rollback the appropriate one depending on whether you use wireless or are connected via LAN cable. This would be done from Control Panel > Device Manager, selecting the driver in the list & choosing rollback.

    NOTE: if you find the correct driver & the rollback option is grayed out then there was not an update so there is no older driver and this is not a solution that will help your particular case.
