I have a Toshiba that was recently "repaired" and after getting it back from IT it no longer will connect wirelessly. I have deleted the network and let windows find it again and try to connect but even after it says it's connected and I see there are packets going back and forth internet explorer still won't find a page. I've disconnected the firewall and symantic just to see if they are blocking connection but that doesn't seem to do anything.

Please help with some detailed suggestions.

Also, I have 2 other compuers that detect the network no problem. I'm not sure why this one is giving me issues.

hi loree2u,

Welcome to Geekstogo.

The problem could be in your services.
Click start - run - type in msconfig.

In your startup and services tabs.
Take notes on what is disabled, unchecked, if anything, and post it.

Since this is a business computer (you have an IT department), why not ask them for help?

Having said that, you can try these commands, see if they help:

For these commands, Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

To reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog
To reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log
