Wirless Connection but no internet access

#1
Hi I have windows 7 and a mac airport for my wifi network. I used to be able to connect to the internet just fine but all of the sudden it stopped working. I tried to plug it directly in but still to no avail, My wirless connection manager says unidentified network and LIMITED ACCESS. I've also tried dropping my IP address and getting a new one... still nothing

How can I fix this??

Thanks a bunch if you can help!

Wish I could help, but I do not use any Apple products. If you cannot get internet access, possibly something is blocking it, such as encryption, or MAC addresses, or a firewall/anti-virus program.

What does the Network and Sharing Center show as far as internet connectivity?

open a command prompt. (in the run box type cmd and hit enter)

at the command prompt type in: ipconfig /all

hit enter. Post the IP address for your wireless card as well as the subnet, dns and gateway.

Thanks.
