Hi.

I have problem with my wifi. I can't connect to a specific network(can connect to others). I can connect to that network fine from other computer. This happened before, couldn't connect to this network for like a month and then it fixed itself somehow and it worked fine until now. I've tried release and renew but it didn't help, when renewing it said that cant my dhcp server for new ip. Tried searching web for solution but didnt find anything usefull, so help me out please

Have you tried turning your router on and off, leaving it for 30 seconds?

Hope this helps,

Harry

I cant really do that, because it's a public network and i have no access to router but if it was routers fault it shouldn't work on the other computer also, no?

Where are you? Work? Outside?

Have you checked your firewall settings?

I'm at home, but use public network. Haven't changed anything in firewall settings so dunno if that could be the problem. I also tried turning firewall off, but it didn't help.

The network you are trying to connect to, your own network? Have you tried changing the network type?

This will give you more flexibility when connecting to a network and other devices;

Hi there...

If I may jump in...

Can you please re-post the ipconfig/all, it's not showing up on your initial post?

For now, try removing all the wireless profiles stored in your network then re-connect to the SSID of your choice with the correct pass-phrase.

It does DHCP has been enabled, have you checked you are obtaining a IP address from the DHCP server?

Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Centre > Change Adapter Settings (left pane) > Right-Click Current Connection > Properties > Double-Click TCP/IPv4

Post a screenshot of the configuration please.
