According to my friend, this prevented me from connecting to the net despite having a wi-fi connection.Then I just changed the settings of the router back to normal. Hello, I'm trying to connect wirelessly from a Lenovo SL410 laptop to my fully functional home network.So what I did was just: 1) open network connections 2) click properties 3) in the GENERAL tab, click INTERNET PROTOCOL (TCP/IP) 4) click Properties 5) choose obtain DNS server automatically My internet worked afterwards. This wasn't my solution unfortunately as I was already using the option for obtaining DNS server automatically.Since I couldn't connect to my network wirelessly, I decided to connect to it by wire.
