Lenovo y480 won't connect to wifi

2013-01-30, 13:27 PM

I've had my (refurbished) Lenovo y480 for about a week now and it connected to my wifi no problem the first few days. Then last night it suddenly lost internet connection and hasn't received it this morning either. I've rebooted a few times. All of my other "gadgets"/laptops get connection. This one seems to find my router for a second, give me internet for a second, then say "no internet connection" and then finally say it can't find my wifi connection.

 

Not sure what to try.

 

Thank you,

Casey

have you tried to run "troubleshoots problems"? maybe it's just dns/ip issue.

After I went out for a few hours I came back and my power went out in my apartment. Now everything seems to be working again.

I'm confused because I did try to reset the router once.

Is it somewhat common to have just one computer not accepting wifi sometimes? I haven't experienced that with my other computers. I just want to make sure that the problem isn't something to worry about being that the system is refurbished.

Thanks a lot!

Went to a coffee shop and tried logging in to free wifi no luck. I'm using the wifi right now on my phone. Something is definitely wrong with wifi on this.

Can you try:

Please click on Start, then right-click on Computer, then click on Manage, then click on Device manager, then open/expand Network adapters and right-click on each of the items under it and click on Uninstall and confirm. Then restart the computer.

Please click on Start->All Programs->Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator. Then type each of the command lines below, one line at a time, and press the Enter key each time:

netsh winsock reset
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh int ip reset netshlog.txt

Then restart the computer and check.
