  1. I have had an HP laptop for 1 year and it has worked on the internet perfectly fine. My wireless router turned off one day while I was using the internet and after it turned back on my laptop would not connect back to the wireless. I have tried connecting my laptop to hotspot from my phone and tried connecting it to the internet modem with a cord but neither would work. Please Help!

    First thing to verify is that the WiFi driver is ok; use an Admin logon OR
    runas /user:administrator devmgmt.msc
    enter the password
    • [+] expand Network Adapters
    • look for your WiFi

    is it marked Red or Yellow?

    You might need to check under Computer Management>Services and Applications and find out if both DHCP Client and DNS Client services are started and running, And are set to be started in Automatic mode.
