    Windows 8 laptop limited wifi connection

    Can't connect after windows update. Have tried everything to connect to home wifi. Reset EVERYTHING. Uninstalled and reinstalled wifi driver. Used system restore to roll back updates by windows. Followed sugestions on this forum and others. Flushed DNS. Tried to reset TCP/IP stack but failed access denied. I have tried so many suggestions I can't even remember them all. Here is screenshot of ipconfig/all:

    Did you install KB3004394 update? Try uninstalling it. It created havoc on 7 systems but have heard of it causing trouble on a few 8 systems as well. Can't hurt to try it.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum!

    Well, the first thing I noticed was you didn't have an ip address and DHCP Enabled was set to No. Try seting DHCP Enabled to yes and see if it makes a difference.

    Another question, are you trying to connect via wireless or wired? Make sure you enable DHCP for both connections.
