    Hi,

    I just got a part-time job as an office assistant. I brought my one and half year-old laptop along to work. It has been three days that whenever I arrive and turn on (or waking it up from sleep) my laptop, my two other colleagues couldn't connect to the internet, even myself. I was told that the internet was okay before I came, and they were able to surf without any problem. However, I was able to load a page when I switch the wireless off and then switch it back on, before the no internet access sign appears on the taskbar. Then the wireless got lost and got connected back. This repeats over and over again, and it seemed that that's what my colleagues have experienced too.

    Make sure you have the latest wireless driver. If it is an integrated adapter get the driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site. If you already have the latest driver reinstall it anyhow in case the installed instance is corrupted.

    What firewall or security suite do you have?

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    Hi,

    I am currently downloading the driver.

    I have Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Done.
