Ever since last week however, the wifi kept getting dropped so I'd have to disconnect/reconnect to get it working. I was wondering what the [bleep] was going on.
Well when I went to shut off my PC earlier today, the automatic updates ran another update on my Windows 7. When I restarted recently, I couldn't connect to the Internet. I don't know if Microsoft is doing this on purpose to force me to update to 10. Either way, now I don't even have the means (Internet) to do that. I guess when the Internet was only working intermittently for the past week, that was their hint.
I suppose I can move my computer beside the modem and hook it up directly if anybody has a solution.
So the problem is: I could see all the wifi around me. I'm even connected at the moment with 100 percent signal strength. But when I go to troubleshoot it says something about default gateway not available. When I try to open up chrome, it also takes me to a page that says dns probe finished no internet.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wifi card. I've checked and I also have the latest driver according to properties. Internet modem works because my phone is also connected, and it's able to connect fine.
