Wireless stopped working on Gateway Laptop help!!

Hi all I am new to this form but trying to help my friend with her Laptop. It was working fine then the next day the internet stopped working on her laptop.

The internet works fine on my laptop and other computers but not on her laptop so something is up. Anyway she has a Gateway windows 7 64bit laptop.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Welcome to SevenForums. In Network and Sharing, Change Adapter Settings, is the adapter enabled. If not, right click and enable, this should turn on wireless.

It is enabled so that is not the problem. Any other suggestions?

Look in the ipv4 properties for the adapter, click on the Advanced button, enter your default gateway address.

This is what the diagnostic scan says," Windows can't automatically detect this network settings.

The default gateway is the address of your router. Some variation of 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 it depends on the model/maker of the router.
Sometimes, the adapter forgets the address of the router, and can't get its issued address from that router. In the Network and Sharing Center, on the left is link to Change Adapter settings. On this page you see the Ethernet and WiFi adapters. In the properties of the wifi, find the ipv4 line and highlight it, press on properties below, this page has an Advanced button, in this page you should see a default gateway address, if it is empty, you need to add the address of the router.

To find info about your network, open a cmd window and type ipconfig /all
You can save this file as a .txt and attach it in your next post, this would help.
