Wifi and the Internet

By sea51 ·
When in an open Wifi area, I generally receive a good and strong signal on my laptop but I am unable to establish an Internet connect with my browser. I assume I need to change some settings on teh browser but I have been unlicky in my attempts so far.
BTW, I have Wifi at home and I have a good connect as well as Internet access on my laptop.
Any help would be appreciated.

worth a try...

by CookieOrc In reply to Wifi and the Internet

when you connect to this open network try this:
Start
run
type cmd and select okay
the command prompt will open
type: ipconfig /release
then ipconfig /renew

This is assuming that you are pulling from dhcp... Sorry if I broke this down way to simple.

Also you can try the repair your connection button...

Thanks. Your explanation was not too simple at all. You told me what to do and I will try it when next I am in the situation I described.

Unfortunately, the repair button option has not worked.
