I have a Dell laptop computer I use to connect to wireless Internet in hotels and other public places with wireless Internet access. I do not have a wireless router at home.

Lately, I cannot manage to connect to the Internet even though my signal to the network I choose is really strong. I have tried disabling my firewall and my antivirus (ESET Smart Security), countless connection repairs, but it won't connect. I have flushed my DNS and reset Winsock entries and TCP/IP. I have no idea what to try anymore. I also have the latest wireless network card driver and no malware.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Is this at one place or anyplace? And I am assuming you could connect at some point where you are trying to now.

Do you use the software that came with the wireless card or Windows 'Zero Configuration' (I think its called) to manage the wireless for you? Could there be a setting in there that got tweaked?

Normally when I have this sort of issue, I uninstall everything(drivers and software), reboot and reinstall it all. Takes a few minutes and normally the problem is gone lol.
