Having a problem with one laptop that can't access certain websites on my home wifi network. Other devices on the same network have no problem. If I plug it into the ethernet cable on the modem, it works just fine. I've tried a dns flush, changing dns servers, rebooting the modem, updating the driver on the wireless adapter, switching browsers, system restore, scanning for malware, and no luck.
When I try to ping those sites, it seems that it resoles the hostname and comes back with an IP address, but then the ping fails. If I try a tracert, it fails right after the router.
If I put the laptop on a different wi-fi network, it works fine. I tried turning off the firewall in the router, and removed McAfeee, and turned off windows defender. Still nothing. It seems like the problem isn't entirely with the router, or entirely with the wireless adapter, but somehow the way they work together. Anyone else come across this and have any other suggestions as to how to fix it?
already done. And tried a different dns server. And since it works on ethernet just fine, the problem lies somehow with how that wireless adapter is interacting with that specific network. It works on other networks just fine, and other computers work on this network without a problem.
