Hi there,


I have two laptops.

Suddenly, last night, the one using Windows 7 disconnected from the internet, resulting in "Limited Connectivity" with the little yellow triangle. I had done nothing to change the computer in anyway. I have reset the router, restarted the laptop, no luck. When I click "Troubleshoot" it says "Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings"

Here is the result of ipconfig /all for the laptop that doesnt connect to the internet:
NB: I see some of them are set as Media Disconnected but I assume thats for when its hardwired directly to the router... the one I think that matters here is the Wireless LAN Adapter Wireless Network Connection..?

Update: This issue has been resolved but I still dont know why it happened... my housemate logged in to the router and deleted my computer's entry in the history which seems to have reset the connection... and now it works...

Odd!
