    Maybe some fullstops? Seriously, that was hard to read.

    1) Do you have a router, modem or wireless dongle?
    2) Any other devices on the same network and if so, do any of them have an issue?
    3) Try and update any drivers
    4) Do you have a software firewall, and if so, is it getting in the way somehow?
    5) Have you done an AV and Malware scan?

    etc etc etc..

          check the lease time on the IP

          does "ipconfig /renew" get you internet back up?

            I have had the same issue in Vista 64 with a Netsys Wireless card, it was just the hardware\driver crapola and would lock up and nothing you did except a reboot would get it going, if you tried a repair it would just hang forever.

            So I just went and bought another wireless card (tplink) and it never missed a beat after that.
