Exclamation Windows 8 WiFi problems
Before Thanksgiving break everything was great then over break I went home and got Windows 8. At home the wifi works great but once I got back here it doesn't work anymore. I can only get internet if i use the wired connection.
How can I fix this?

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from the PC manufacturer's web site. If you already have it reinstall it anyhow in case the installed instance is corrupted.

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page (don't collapse the Radar, Connection or Signal History) of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.

Indicate the network to which you are trying to connect and also show ...

Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
