Odd Problem In networking..

#1
Hi...I'm Anshay.
I've got an odd problem to experience in Windows 8 Release Preview 64-bit after upgrading from Windows 7 Home Basic 64-bit.
It is detecting my WiFi Network..and i can access it through Windows 8 Metro Apps but i can't access it through any of the softwares that i have installed like Google Chrome,Firefox,Google Drive,UTorrent etc.

I'm typing this message from another person's computer on which, too, the same OS is installed but surprisingly there are no such problems arising on his machine.

Please Help me..

I don't have chrome but I tried this in firefox,safari and even IE in the softwares not the Win8 Apps...but nothing is happening after loading that URL up...it's simply blinking every time I press Enter.

Sorry but you can understand my confusion.
Open a command prompt and type
ipconfig /all | clip (the vertical line is the pipe symbol usually found above the backslash key on your keyboard)
and hit enter
click reply to this thread and then paste the contents of your clipboard (the results of the previous command) into it and let's see what you've got.

The command doesn't produce anything in the command prompt window. It simply copies information to the Windows clipboard.
Just paste (ctrl + V) into your next post

OK, you can ping google's IP address but cannot resolve its' FQDN. So that means you are having DNS issues.
One more thing to try first
Click start and in the windows search box type
Code:
[B][I][SIZE=3]http://209.85.145.105[/SIZE][/I][/B]
hit enter and let us know the results

Sorry I just noticed that every time I type
Code:
http://Anything That Follows
the site's text editor or software automatically assigns it a URL tag and shortens or edits the actual text that I type unless I surround it with CODE tags.
So please make sure that you
ping
Code:
www.google.com
and make sure that you type
Code:
http://209.85.145.105
into the search or run dialog box.

Well, when I type this address in Run, my IE 'software' opens up and it says,"Page cannot be displayed"..means it is unable to connect.

Sort of but not exactly.
Close all browsers, especially IE
Open Control Panel, change the view by drop down in the top right corner to small icons
Open Internet Option
Select the Connections tab and then the LAN settings button, uncheck all check boxes there and OK your way back out of there.
Open IE and see if it connects

Update the driver for your Atheros AR5BWB222 from here Drivers for Atheros AR5BWB222 and Windows 7
If still no joy up load a copy of your System Information Utility and we'll have a look at potential problem causers.
Click start and type
msinfo32
hit enter
In the resultant window click file -> save
give it a name and choose a location to save it.
Zip it up and attach it to your next post.

The attachment is not even uploading the file...the driver update didn't help.
