    My computer suddenly will not connect to our wifi whereas everything else will. I am at a complete loss as to how to fix it.

    I tried the ipconfig /all 0 & notepad 0 and I got this: 20181217_155818.jpg 20181217_155828.jpg 20181217_160116.jpg

    Try this please
    open Command Prompt with admin rights and type the following commands. Press Enter after each command:

    netsh winsock reset

    ipconfig /release

    netsh int ip reset

    ipconfig /renew

    ipconfig /flushdns

    you may find it easier to copy and paste the cmds
