  1. Hello,

    I've got a problem. I can't seem to get the wireless working on 1 laptop. It used to work, but since I logged into another Wifi it doesn't work anymore.

    It keeps giving the DNS lookup failed in Chrome.

    I checked the DNS client, it's running. I renewed, released, did netsh resets.

    IP and DNS are on automatic.

    The only thing I can find it the logs is that the "Gateway" is empty.


    On top of that it takes really long to acquire the network address. Then it gives a limited connectivity warning for 2 seconds, and then it says the connection was succesful and that the signal strength is excellent.

    Save to your HD, rename by stripping off the .TXT

    Now using an admin login, dbl-click that file to make the change - - reboot.
