Desktop computer having issues with connecting to home WiFi network, but has no problem with other WiFi networks, help?
I eventually broke out an older laptop and used the Windows 7 built in ICS tool to use the ethernet cable and connect to the internet. It worked. So I grabed the old router and plugged it into the laptop's ethernet and created a new WiFi network and sure enough the desktop picked it up and it connected just fine to the internet. I switched back to the new (old name) network and it still refused to allow me access to the internet.
I am running Windows 8 fully patched with a TP-Link WN881nd WiFi card. System restore is not an option unless it is 100% needed.
I have looked at hundreds of forums and threads and none of them have been able to help.
