    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    Is there any reason why windows did not prompt me for this driver? I have checked for updates around the clock and it said everything was up to date. Installing now, will try it at work tomorrow and hopefully this will work.

    If you are into bitcoins, I would love to send you a small donation (about 50$ worth) for your much appreciated help.

    If Windows Update didn't offer you any drivers those drivers might not be on it's WHQL list.

    Let me know.

    Perform a hard reset of the router. What brand do you have?

    sadly i cannot (i work as a power engineer in a hospital) i'll try to contact the IT guy (if we have one) see if he can perform a bard reset. in a very secluded area up north, hard to get IT guys here.

    on a side note, before i started having the original problem i would get limited connection a lot. maybe its one of those days. sorry, and thanks a bunch for the help

    Most public places require you accept the terms of service before connecting to the network.

    Open Internet Explorer after connecting to see if their is an agreement page.

    just tried, no agreement or anything. just says "you're not connected to a network"

    still on limited connection. if i run a diagnose it says "wifi doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

    What is the name of the wireless network?

    Have you ever successfully connected to it?

    name is "wi-fi" i have successfully connected since i started working here in March. some days it would go to limited for anywhere from 10min to a day. my co-worker is able to connect as we speak.

    diagnostics says wifi does not have valid IP configuration.

    Press + X > select Command Prompt (Admin) > copy & paste
    Code:
    netsh wlan delete profile name=*
    into command prompt > press enter.

    Try connecting to the wireless network again.

    The other option it to manually set the IP address. Let me know..
