It's odd that my laptop is the only one in the household admist other laptops and smartphones that can't connect.
I recently moved back from my apartments near campus and my computer never had issues connecting to the internet there. Flash forward to the day I move back, my computer access the internet fine the first day, it's the next day after that I notice I can't seem to connect at all???
It's always trying to connect to the wifi but if I do I get limited access, and then a few seconds It disconnect and this whole cycle of trying to connect then disconnecting happens over and over again.
you know how when you go to the network sharing and sharing center on windows 7? There's this map of (your pc) --- (modem/wifi)-- Internet icon
Sometimes I can get a yellow triangle hazard between PC -- modem/wi/fi but I always get an "X" from wifi--- internet.
Keep in mind that all the other computers in the house can access the internet just fine.
I've run a few windows diagnostics to see if the problem could be resolved, some that came up were
-DNS server not responding
I've tried turning off the Modem and waiting for a bit to see if that happens, nothing.
I've run Malware anti malware and Avast in quick scan mode and they haven't picked up anything.
I'll try a few other programs too and try to update this as soon as I can. Not having internet means i'll have to run back and forth between laptops with a usb flash drive
I've gone into the advanced settings for the intel wireless adapter and looked up settings and clicked properties for Internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and in the advanced tap i've manually inputted the number for the Default gateway that you get when you type ipconfig
restarted and nothing happened.
I've also tried disabling my network adapater for a few seconds and seeing if that could reset/resolve things = nothing.
So what's the deal? This is really an odd case (for me at least) given the circumstances.
Will resting it to factory settings or using a recovery disc resolve me of these problems?
i'm already backing up some files.
