2. Put the machine in another Wireless network and check whether it can access Internet normally. If so, I suggest you replace another encryption type for a test, such as WEP.

b. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator". If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
c. Please enter the following command, and press Enter.

Netsh winsock reset
