No Internet Access - Wireless router/network connection problem

I cannot connect to the internet after installing Windows 7 64 bit. I can see the wireless router/network from my computer, but sometimes it gets Limited Connectivity or it says Connected but with no access to the internet. I have used the diagnosis tools on Windows to try and fix it but it doesn't work, and my router is definitely connecting to the internet as I am using it right now on a laptop that's on the same network. I would love to know if anybody else is experiencing this problem and if they have fixed it. I tried changing the Physical address of the LAN connection but it didn't work, I'm guessing because I'm connecting via wireless and not wired, and I have heard similar stories from other forums that this may be a more common problem than I suspect. Thanks in advance for your reply, and any details you need I'll try my best to provide them.
Ok I finally got it working, all it took was for me to download the latest drivers off of the website (Realtek 8185 wireless card) and install it in compatibility mode and then it suddenly worked. Hopefully this will help somebody suffering from a similar problem!
