    Laptop sees wifi network and connects but says no internet


    My laptop suddenly dropped the wifi internet connection and when I try to reconnect it sees the wifi network, connects to it but then shows an unavailable symbol. The router Is working as other devices are using it and the laptop works when connected via Ethernet. Does anybody have any suggestions as to what might be the problem?

    many thanks.

    Thanks, can I run this on the laptop while connected via Ethernet and still get valid results?

    You have 3 problems your DNS is the local router which is giving problems set on the wireless DNS to 208.67.220.220 & 208.67.222.222 your running a lot of McAfee tools which can be a nightmare one of which is a proxy server. You main problem is there is another station on the same channel as you running 100% which will kill your connection you can change the channel on the router but it's not a long term fix as the other may also change at times putting you back to square one

    Thanks. When you say another station on the same channel what does that mean? Is it to do with the number of devices being used? With regard to the laptop is there anything that can be done like, a re-set?

    Routers transmit on up to 13 channels if you are on the same one as someone else and their signal is stronger than you'd it will block you thats what happening you login to your router and set it to another channel like 11
