I recently received a used laptop but I can't get it to connect to my network. When I tried to connect, I got the message saying connected, but the icon in the tray had a warning sign. When I clicked on it, it said "limited or no connectivity." When I clicked on repair, it said that it was unable to assign an IP address. Any suggestions?
