My laptop can't connect to my wifi but everything else in my house can. My laptop can connect to other wifis. Answered

My laptop connects to my wireless router but when it connects it says "No Internet".
Same thing happens when I connect the ethernet cable straight to my laptop. Every
other device in my house can connect to the internet just fine. I don't have another computer
in my house currently, the other computer broke. I tried everything such as restoring my laptop
back to a point before this happened, changing my DNS to google's DNS (8.8.8.8), that didn't help
either. I'm asking this question on my iPad. I'll be happy to provide further information, just ask.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I have windows 10

The virtual" button" on the settings page itself, not the physical switch on the unit but the "button" that they added on the very top of the network settings just above the networks available.

This is probably a dumb question but do you have the wi-fi button that windows 10 added I had an older laptop that I had to download it thru the original manufacturer driver support site afterwards I was able to turn my wi-fi on so that it showed up on my network.

My lap top ceased to work when I upgraded to win 10. I downloaded the latest drivers for the wireless card using a cable and it is Ok now

Mallware will do this kind of thing.

Start the computer in safe mode with networking. (I assume you know how to do this)

Once it is in safe mode it should connect and give you internet if it is a malware or virus problem because in safe mode most of those things are turned off..

Go to malwarebytes.org and download their free scanner and install it (all in safe mode) and run several scans. Then start normally and run another scan. Keep scanning until it cones up clean. This should fix your problem.

Run malwarebytes every few weeks to keep things free of problem programs.

I already had Makwarebytes, I did a scan and the first time

it came up with 3 false positives. I deleted them anyways. The

2nd time it came up clean. Oh, and I can't connect to the internet

even when in safe mode with networking.

I did the scans in normal mode by the way.

Well, if you have done all of that then its a good chance that it is a hardware problem. Sometimes the NIC wifi chips go bad. You can get a cheap USB one to replace it and try connecting with that. Don't know where you live but they are available almost everywhere and often less than $20.00.

trouble shooting says that they couldn't find any errors.

And those didn't work

Sounds to me like a proxy setting is wrong, might be a good place to check first.
