    Hi, I'm not a very tech savvy person, so I'm not sure how to fix this. I just got a brand new ASUS laptop with Windows 10 already installed on there. When I was first setting it up, I was not at home, so I used the internet at my friends house which I had no problem connecting to. When I got home, I could connect to my Wi-fi, but it kept saying "No Internet Access". I went to someone else's house later and tried it there (which it did the same thing, but later discovered that McAfee was blocking me from accessing this internet so I uninstalled it and it worked immediately). Thinking the problem was fixed, I returned home, but I am STILL having the same problem again. Please help! I am going to be using this computer for school, and if I can't fix this problem, I am hopeless.

    Thanks!

    Go to Start > All Apps > Windows Administrative Tools > Windows Firewall with Advanced Security. Click on Windows Firewall Properties in the center, then make sure Domain Profile, Private Profile and Public Prifile outbound is not set to block. They should all say Alllow (Default)

    Okay so problem fixed! I had already tried all the firewall stuff and the trouble shooting and network stuff. But none of it was working so I just let my computer install its updates and all of the sudden it was able to ID that my DHCP or something like that was not enabled. Once I enabled it, it worked like a charm! Thank you though!
