I've tried doing everything from cmd commands to resetting the PC. Still connects but browser doesn't work or anything else internet related
I went and bought a netgear wifi adapter. And it connects just fine. But I still can't browse the web and I have it sent to auto for the ip and dns. I'm trying that command nowOK, so we would need to go through the steps one more time to ensure we get this working.
To confirm, you are showing you are connected to your router/wireless access point, but when you go to a website, it fails? If so, can you confirm what errors the browser is giving you?
in the command prompt, let's make sure your computer is getting the correct IPv4 information. Type ipconfig/all and press enter. We would need the information that is under the Wireless Adapter Wireless Connection. (may be called Wireless LAN Adapter WiFi)
What is the IPv4 Address, Gateway, and DNS information?
The second one and the third one worked. And I think so. It's from at&tIn Command Prompt, let's see if your computer can see the internet. Type the following commands (if any fails, it may take a little longer to complete (not more than a minute):
The first two will show us if the computer can go outside to the internet. If both fail, but the last one shows replies, then the issue may be with the router.
Is the modem also your wireless access point (router)?
I think the issue may be with the router. The first one indicates you cannot find a website via its name. The second one is by IP, which is used by the computer when it finds the website by name.Ok the last didn't work
