long story long:
I couldn't print wirelessly, so I tried to ping my printer, switch/router/ WAP's and I couldn't ping any of them. However I had wireless internet access through the WAP's -> router/switch. I can ping the IP address of this PC and get a response just fine.
I went hardwired and I CAN print and ping on my network.
I noticed that SEP is blocking svchost.exe from hitting an IP that I don't recognize 188.8.131.52 when my network is 192.168.XXX.XXX. SEP is blocking it every 3-10 minutes.
Running SEP and avast it finds no viruses. I tried to run the avast boot scan, but the PC got too hot after about 3 hours and shut off... lol. oh well.
I would like to get this fixed, by fixed, I don't think this svchost should be doing what it's doing and i would to get this machine back on my network wirelessly like it's supposed to be.
EDIT: this is an HP laptop with AMD A10-4600M, less than 3 years old, running windows 8.1, put SEP on it the day I got it and been running like a champ since day one.
Any help is appreciated.
