Also, when I did the initial setup, there was no problem with the internet connection on my wifi network.
Edit: I just tried using my iPhone's personal hotspot. It connected to the "wifi" network, but still no internet connection. They no longer have internet access at their house (where I am a at the moment). I'm just flummoxed that it was OK during the initial setup and successfully downloaded Office and McAfee AV. Could the McAfee suite be blocking it? I can't find a setting there.
Okay I could blame this on Windows but I've seen it on Mac laptops too. Sometimes rebooting the router helps. Something about going from one network to another confuses them. On Windows I go in and tell it to forget the network, on Macs delete the Wifi from Network prefs and re-add it.
Happens with phones too. The other day my sister called, (love being family tech support) they were on vacation and trying to connect to the wireless network. One iPhone wouldn't, so I had her reboot the router, all was well. Rebooting the phone didn't do it.
