+ 0 Votes Are you setup to recieve automatic IP and DNS Addresses? ybro2 7 years ago Make sure that your laptop is set to automatically recieve I.P. and DNS addresses automatically. In control panel open network connections. Go to rightclick properties for your network connection and rightclick select properties for the TCP/IP connection. There should be a checkbox or radio button recieve IP automatically, or something to that effect. There should also be the like for recieving DNS addresses. Select both of these, restart, unless you have windows xp and see how it works.
