I was using the ethernet connection, I also tried turning WiFi on. This showed it was connected but still no go. When you open the network share/help it looks as if there is a connection to the router/modem. However I am unable to access the NAS nor the network printer, so I figure there is no connection to the router either via ethernet or WiFi.
The other computer in the house is connected via an ethernet cable and works OK. Also I can access the internet via WiFi on my phone. It would seem the problem is with my laptop.
Any ideas on what to look for. I am thinking it's a Windows 7 issue.
The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 14Z running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit with Office 2010 Professional.
