So I got this new wifi gateway a day ago and all of my devices seem to work well with it except for my PC. It's connected to the router but it has no internet access and when I run the network diagnostics I get the image you see below. How do resolve my issue?

Firewall problems. Can you ping your router or no?

Try just for a moment to completely turn off Windows Defender and then slowly turn the settings back up until you lose internet again, try and narrow down the one setting.

Turning off windows defender doesn't seem to turn the wifi back on.

can you ping 8.8.8.8 or any internet IP you may know?

 

if yes:  you have a DNS problem

OK, so you can ping your gateway IP.

 

you cannot ping a public IP.

 

your gateway is not likely connected to the internet.

 

 

got into command prompt, type ipconfig and tell us the results.

We're going to need to compare some settings between devices then.

 

On the computer that can't connect. Go into your command prompt and type "ipconfig". show us the results

 

on your tablet. you will have to find the network settings that provide to you the IP address, gateway, and DNS information.

Here is the ipconfig results and I also tried matching the ip4 on my desktop with my iPad and nothing happened

you're not connected to an Access point though. I may have gotten a little ahead of ourselves.

 

are you actually connected to an access point?
