I had to recently reload the windows 7 operating system onto the laptop as I had a couple of viruses. However, after reloading the os, the laptop somehow wouldnt connect wirelessly to the internet anymore.
The first thing I tried was shut down all computers connected to the router, turn off the router and the modem, wait for 15 seconds and then replug the modem and router. That didnt work. Then I went to the command prompt on the laptop and tried the
ipconfig /flushdns (this worked, that is no error message)
ipconfig /registerdns (said cannot register ip of a computer that has its media disconnected)
ipconfig /release (this worked , no error msg)
ipconfig /renew (This just hung, I had to do a cntrl c to get back the command prompt)
In other words this didnt work.
Then I tried the
netsh int ip reset reset.log
netsh int ip reset catalog
that didnt work
Then I went to the command prompt again and typed ipconfig /all , and the address reported for the IPv4 was 192.168.53.35, which probably means that the router is not assigning a good ip to my laptop. But what do I do to fix this?
Could the wireless adaptor in the laptop have gotten loose or something? I doubt it cause the laptop can see all the wireless networks, but it still worth asking I guess.
What else can I do to fix the problem
