Shutdown the notebook. Tap away at f8 as youstart up to access Windows Recovery Console. Use the arrow keys to select 'Safe Mode with Networking' and hit enter. Let windows fully load in this mode and see if you can now access the internet - only choose a known 'safe site' such a Microsoft or HP as your security software will not be running while in this mode. To exit Safe Mode, simply restart the notebook in the usual way and Windows will start normally.
Does the notebook still hang when connecting to the internet in this mode?

HP G62-a25 laptop running Windows 7. Laptop is about one year old. It was working fine until about a month ago, when it started hanging as soon as it connected to the internet. I uninstalled the wireless driver and reinstalled the latest Broadcom 802.11 driver. I re-installed the Netgear router drivers from the ISP. After the reinstallation with the ethernet cable, the laptop connected fine to the internet until it was restarted. Then it refused to connect again. Wireless does not work at all at this stage.
I followed the advice below to reboot and selected safe mode with networking startup. It worked with both wireless as well as the ethernet cable.
I would really appreciate any suggestions as I have no idea what to do next.
So anyone please find m the solution for this
