    No actually the screen shot says No Internet Access, just like mine does, the Op said IPv6 show's No connection which is not true, it says No Internet Access which is exactly what it always says.

    It says 'no network access' if you look at the screen capture.

    If we could only see the ipconfig then we can tell for certain if IPv6 has been disabled.

    I tried to obtain that information in my first post but unfortunately it never happened.

    Maybe just an ipconfig/all because I guess the .exe automatic one didn't work for the first time ever.

    I have been able to solve my problem by first removing the wireless network driver from the device manager and on restarting the PC Win8 installed it automatically and when tried to connect to my router it asked if I wanted to connect to local devices on private network, which if selected "YES" I was able to connect to my other laptop on Wi Fi. Many thanks to all for your kind support.
