Wireless problems

I had to get a new hard drive for my lenovo ideapad Z370.  

Since then, I have no problem connecting to my wireless at home, or to a friends phone that's a hotspot. but I can't connect to wifi in places like hotels and starbucks.

 

Any suggestions?

Re: Wireless problems

SInce you can connect to a home access point without problems, I wouldn't consider this as a driver problem with the WiFi adapter.

 

Can you try to flush your dns, renew and release DCHP and reset winsock by copying and pasting this code to notepad and saving it as "FlushDNS.bat"

 

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

 Note that this will restart the PC so save everything before you run the batch file.

 

If you're having trouble saving the code as a batch file, see this picture:

Hope this helps.
