Hi. I have tried your troubleshooting and appears to be the DNS, but I still can't get my laptop to work even with the google numbers. It works on other networks and I can usually get my iPhone and iPad to connect on my home network but never my laptop. At best it will connect for about 10 seconds then drop. I have just moved to Germany and set up my home internet with my own personal router from the states. I also could not get it to connect to my router page with the IP address. I have subscribed to an unblock website for a us DNS so I'm not sure if that might be the problem. Another thing I am unsure about is the proxy.. This is turned off automatically on my devices but for the laptop I'm not sure what settings to use. Also I have to always reset my devices after getting the message "not connected to the internet" or "server stopped responding" Any
suggestions?

How old is your laptop, and how old is your router?

Also, check your router configuration to see if the SSID broadcast is disabled. :)
