I'm having a strange issue. My laptop will connect perfectly fine to my home network, other private networks, and many public hotspots. But there seems to be an issue recently with a few local hotspots around town here (Starbucks, McDonalds). I can go to one Starbucks and connect perfectly fine, then drive right down the street to another and while I am connected, it says I have no internet access. The guy sitting right next to me is logged onto the network perfectly fine. Same thing happens at McDonalds.
I've been able to connect perfectly fine here before, but suddenly this problem has continued. I'm completely at a loss for what to do. I've rebooted, disabled and re-enabled the network card, tried to troubleshoot the problem (which results in no information). It doesn't make sense to me how I can't connect, but this cat sitting right next to me can.
The darned thing shows me that I am connected with terrific signal strength, but no internet access. Windows: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Edition, Version 6.1.7600
