Windows 7: WIFI connects but unable to open Internet

04 Apr 2015   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Steps For Solving This Problem

The solution for this problem is too technical for many of us. For those with less expertise, like myself, here are the steps:
Go to Control Panel
Click on Network and Sharing
On left, click on Change Adapter Settings
Right-click on the local Wi Fi logo
Click on Properties
Click on the WORDS of Internet Protocol Version 4 (leave the check box checked)
Click on Properties
Check IP Address AUTOMATIC

This should solve the problem.
