Since then, I have encountered a new problem. I have "limited or no connectivity". I am connecting via a wireless net gear router. Other computers still connect with no problem. The laptop with the problem also would not connect to a different router at work which it previously was able to do. So the problem appears to be isolated to one laptop.
I followed a forum to reconfig the ip and when done I get this error message after doing ipconfig/renew
Windows ip configuration
no operation can be performed on Local Area Network while it has it's media disconnected.
An error occurred while renewing interface Wireless network connection 2 : A socket operation encountered a dead network
Jeepers. What is going on ?
