    Hello,

    I have a few problems. One, is that sometimes when loading a webpage will say "server not found". (This happens randomly these few last days.) Second, On my ipconfig I will see that the media state is disconnected. I can still search the web in wireless and home computer. I like to know if there is any problem with the media state being disconnected. thank you.

    I also posted my ipconfig here.

    Yes, if you are trying to connect by Wi-Fi. No, if you are not trying to connect by Wi-Fi.

    Ok, What does media state even do? My laptop is already connected wireless and is fine, but when I try to connect with our home computer via wireless it doesnt even though I input the right password. So those media state the cause of that? If so how can i fix that so that it wont be a problem later? thank you.

    "Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected" is simply a status statement, not a cause of anything.

    Is the above ipconfig /all for the PC with the wireless issue? If so, what kind of wireless adapter is that (integrated, USB, PCI, etc.)? Does it have a brand and model designation?

    To elborate: This is a symptom. It's stating that it does not see a connnection. For Ethernet, it means the network cable is unplugged or defective. For wireless, it means it's not connected to a wireless network.
