Try disabling the IPS and FW Startup Protection features.
In the HIPS IPS Options policy, disable the Startup IPS Protection feature.
In the HIPS FW Options policy, disable the Allow only outgoing traffic until the Host IPS service has started feature.
Reboot and see if the issue still occurs.
Also try uninstalling Microsoft QoS, reboot, and retry.
KB72097 - LAN / Wi-Fi / VPN Client / network connection fails to connect with Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0 / 7.0
Will let you know how it goes..
Ok have done some limited testing as the device is locked down and I'm awaiting the local admin info
When connecting to Wifi, if the Wifi radio is turned off and then turned on when Windows 7 is running it connects to the router but never completes correctly. If I leave the Wifi radio turned on and then reboot the device, Windows 7 is then able to connect correctly and has access to the internet etc
I have noticed that with Windows 7 if you connect to a new network with HIPS installed sometimes you do not get the pop screen to select the network location, (e.g. Home Network, Work Network, Public Network). Which would explain why the network connection does not complete correctly.
Once I have the local admin access I will troubleshoot the services etc and feedback
FYI, I would suggest you open a McAfee Support Service Request (if you are able to) once you have further information that this is a Host IPS issue to troubleshoot this further.
