The wireless internet aspect of my daughter's laptop failed. It is a system board malfunction. I purchased a USB wireless adapter to overcome the issue and after installation it immediately connected to the access point which is connected to my wired Linksys router. Cliff Notes: 1. Went to connect wirelessly in another room. No connection. 2. Unplugged the power to router, modem, and access point for 15 seconds in order to reset. Did not resolve the issue. 3. Access point is recognized by the laptop and shows it connected and signal good. 4. Wireless adater in device manager recognized and fully working. It is "Device funtioning properly." 5. Attempted to do a repair several times but here is the repeated message: "Connot connect with DNS server. Network Diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response." So, Access is functiong and recognized by the laptop as connected and signal is good. The wireless adapter is recognized as fully functioning. Yet I can't receive a response. Advice please. Networking isn't anywhere near a strong area for me. * One other thing. My old Toshiba laptop connects with its a/b miniwireless card.
