    Are you taking about Microsoft Windows 7 Starter Edition? This is typically only available in developing markets and comes with some serious feature limitations. If you are able to provide additional system details, this may help resolve your problem.

    hi again, you can try disabling your firewall for home/private networks.

    turned off firewall on netbook completely. but still no luck. btw i dont even have limited access, i have zero access :(

    as i mentioned earlier, i get a connection, and the win7 netbook asks if its a home or public network. i select home but never have got internet access.

    i even tried the portable wifi hotspot option on the phone, with security set to open. the netbook sees the wireless connection, i connect, it says connected.... but no internet access.
