Hey guys,

Hope you can help me out. I have a laptop that I connect wirelessly to my internet connection.

However, last night our power went out and since then, I only get "Local Only" connection. I cannot connect to the Internet.

I had this happen before, all I'd do is unplug the router, wait 30 seconds, plug it back in, restart my PC and then it would be fixed. It won't work this time. I've tried restarting my router 3 times with no luck.

I've also tried to disconnect and reconnect to the network which did not work either.

Any other ideas? :)

Thanks!

Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.

I've also tried to disconnect and reconnect to the network which did not work either.

Do you mean that you unplugged the modem for 30 seconds and pluged it back in?
If so you may want to contact your ISP and have them check the line.
Thank you.

I've ungplugged the modem, router, and PC. Then replugged them all back in in that order. No luck.

I've disconnected from the network via the "Network and Sharing Center" and reconnected, no help.

Tried renewing my IP. No luck there either.

PCs that are "hard wired" with an RJ45, however, work perfectly fine.

Are they connected to a router, or straight to the modem?
If you can connect to another computer through the router you should be able to connect to the INTERNET as well.So the problem is not with the computer, or router.
(unless the router is blocking all INTERNET activity.)
Which operating system are you using?

The computer can connect to another computer through the router, and can connect to the internet when wired directly to the router.
Can you try using a different router and see what happens.

Definitely go with that. Last night's storm took out one of my work's routers.
