If you can get to the Internet and Google (or other Search Engine), you know that there are only a few answers to this issue.
Most of issues and solutions center around your setup and whether or not your adapter card is working properly.
- You do, of course, need to have your wireless switched on first.
- If you have recently used a wireless setting in which you had a static IP address assigned for your DNS server, for your ISP service, for example, you must reset your configuration to allow the IP address to be obtained "automatically"
Control Panel > icon view > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings >
Right-Click on your Wireless "Wi-Fi" > Properties >
In "This connection uses the following items", Scroll down to
Click on Internet Protocol Internet Version 4 (TCP/IP/IPv4)
Properties > CHECK "Obtain an IP address automatically" > OK
Below is some help you can use to assure that you have your settings in order.
Because you are apparently looking for mulitiple wireless networks, I assume you are not trying to connect to a home network of your own devising. Nonetheless, below find the information for setting up a home network in case you do need this information:
