Hi.

Had some wonderful help recently from Broni and Gringo, but I'm puzzled! I ran a Windows Networks Diagnostic and it said "You need to sign up with this Network's ISP to get access to the Internet." And underneath that it said: Connections to webpages are currently being redirected to a different webpage.

I haven't been redirected (that I know of) but something isn't right here..obviously.

Could anyone try and explain what is happening here, please?

Are you connected by your home network? It seems the message is saying that you are not...

All I know is when I check in event viewer it says: WLAN extensibility has stopped.

Module path: C:\windows\system32\athihivs.dll

Your network icon status by the system tray should indicate that you are connected or not.

WLAN auto config has successfully stopped...warning? I get these kind of events, but overall is not affecting my wifi connection. Its a startup service for the WLAN in windows.

But when I go to services it says 'WLAN AutoConfig Started - set to Automatic ..

OK, fine, but why I am getting these warnings?

Someone suggested uninstalling the wireless drivers.. but when I check devices it says they are ok.

Am I looking in the right place? Should I uninstall and try to update? It's that error all the time: athihvs.dll

There is nothing to worry for any warning flags under Windows Event Viewer particularly for the WLAN start or stop message. It just means that the adapter is turned off/on while when booting up, the controller will automatically start if it is set to auto under startup services.
