Trouble Connecting Laptop to Internet via Wireless Router watch

    • Thread Starter

    Got a new HP Laptop today and I've been trying to get it configured so it can connect to my home wireless network. The network map goes like this I guess

    Jeff's Laptop ---------> Wireless Home Network --------> Internet

    However, for some silly reason, the connection between my laptop and the wireless home network is fine everytime. However, for some reason - it won't connect through from the wireless network to the internet. It's not something silly like a misconnected wire or anything like that I don't think, otherwise I wouldn't be able to connect to the internet via my desktop either (as I am doing so now). So why is it that my laptop is the only device which won't connect through to the internet?

    So I tried to diagnose the problem, and it apparently there is limited IPv6 connectivity. It gives me this option to "Automatically get new IP settings for network adapter Wireless network Connection". When I accept this, it connects fine to the internet. So all is well and good, but the thing is, when I disconnect it, and try to reconnect, the same problem occurs. Question is, how can I fix this so that I can actually connect to the internet quickly and efficiently without having to go through all this hassle? x_x
