    Mine just keeps saying Windows can’t find the problem. Tried wired and wireless on dsl, internet works fine on my ps3 and iPod, not sure why Windows is putting up such a fuss.

  2. VT says:

    None of the above “fixes” have worked. The wireless says it is connected but the internet says not available. I have unplugged the modems and router and restarted the laptop to no avail. Any suggestion would be welcomed!!!

    Thx!

    No such luck. I’m pretty sure the “troubleshoot” feature has never helped me with anything. Duh, go ask a friend. I never would have thought of that.

    I just reinstalled parallel tools and worked fine after that.

  6. Kenny says:

    i have tried everything to no avail. I have Internet access on all of my computers but windows 7 in parallels says no connection. Troubleshooter can’t find any solution. Tools are installed properly. Still win 7 in parallels cannot locate my internet connection. Very frustrating. Any other suggestions?
