I was happily browsing the net a couple of evenings ago when suddenly all my sites became unreachable. On checking the wifi connection it is showing full WiFi connection but with the message 'No Internet access'.
My husband's computer is working fine on the same router & network & I have installed a USB WiFi dongle on my machine which is working fine. So it is not the router.
I have searched the net & tried everything I can find but nothing has solved the problem.
My machine is running Windows 7 & I have tried (among other things):
Re-booting the router
Dis-abling & re-enabling the network adaptor
Updating the drivers
Checking that the IP4 & IP6 are obtaining addresses automatically
Run an IP flush etc etc
My computer is also showing an 'odd' IP address (169.254...) which I understand is a Windows default IP for when there is some problem. Reading about the problem it appears that there is some problem with DHCP but no-one seems to be able to tell me how to deal with it.
Can anyone here help?
