Windows 7: Have internet connection, unable to browse with wifi. LAN ok

26 Jan 2017   #1

Windows 7 home Premium 32bit
Have internet connection, unable to browse with wifi. LAN ok

I travel a lot and I started having problems connecting my laptop at hotels, airports, coffee shops..etc
I am using Windows 7 Home Premium
4 weeks ago, I didn't have that problem. Perhaps since I upgraded something, So every time I connect to the hotel wifi access for example, it will show at the bottom right that it is connected as the hotel_guest. Obviously, it will require that I enter a code/room number/last name when a window will pop up or when I start a browser... When I open either, IE, Firefox or Chrome, I get the same results: not connected.
At hotels where there is no code required, I connect directly and everything works. I use the LAN at hotels that require a code to enter, I open any browser and the hotel page will open up requesting last name and room number, with or without the code...and it works fine. But not when using wireless.
At home, wifi connects to the home network with no problems.
I disabled all firewall, pop ups and tried everything. Using the "ping" test, there is connection, but no browser works
Therefore I believe it has to do with a wifi setting somewhere and third partie's website where it requires to enter something before having access.
If someone knows how to fix this, it would be appreciated.

Hello and welcome Denis now you say you upgraded some thing just what was that? Also when you got that message not connected did you try running the network diagnostics - the window that pops up when you lose or cannot get a connection?

The other thing is too can you please update the system specs please as it is very hard advising what to do when we do not know what we are dealing with ie just Laptop OS 7 browser ?Chrome is not much to go on.
System Info - See Your System Specs a good way is to use Point 5(D) as the specs can be pulled up by clicking on the small system specs box at lower right of the post box
