Windows 7: Laptop won't connect to WiFi, but all other devices are fine.

Laptop won't connect to WiFi, but all other devices are fine.

It seems to be due to the Time Warner/ Spectrum merger, at least I didn't have problems until yesterday. I have a Belkin router and all of my and my wife's other devices connect fine. The Windows 7 laptop does not. It says "No Internet access", yet the connection shows as Excellent. I've tried every fix I could find online (restart router, disable anti virus and windows firewall, various cmd commands, etc), and nothing helps. Ipconfig /all shows physical addresses of 00-00 all the way through. Help!

I'll see what I can do, using only my phone's wifi.

Edit: I had to do print screen on the laptop, save the images to a micro sd, then put that in my phone.

Somehow I fixed it myself. All I did was plug it in via ethernet. For some reason, once I did that, the WiFi staged working again.
