    I can connect to my LAN but not Wifi.


    Hello,

    I have tried for a few days to fix this problem myself but now must ask for help. I can connect to other wifi (my parents house, friends house, etc.) no problem. For some reason my home router (Netgear N300) doesn't like me much and all attempts to connect have failed. Also, I have a Lenovo G505.

    To give you some more info here is my ipconfig /all

    From what I can gather from some other forums this might be a default gateway problem. Not sure how to fix and would really love to be able to utilize my wifi and not be chained to my Ethernet. Any help is greatly appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read.

    Need the info from "netsh wlan show all". Not the IPconfig. Also need the exact model of the Netgear router. How far away is the computer from the router, when you try to connect? Also how is the router placed? Is it back behind a tv or under a desk or bookcase?

    You will need to update the firmware on that router before it will work with Windows 8. You already have the Broadcom wireless WHQL driver installed because you are showing the WiFi direct virtual adaptor which installed with the WHQL driver.
