I have internett, but can't access it

by knuttr / October 8, 2015 12:32 PM PDT

I recently came from holyday, and turned on the PC. It said I had internet but when I went on chrome, not internet access. It says; DNS_PROBE_FINISHED and DNS_PROBE_STARTED

All my other PC's are working fine.

Here is what it says when i type "ipconfig" on CMD:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection* 4:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Wireless LAN adapter Wireless Network Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::ccdd:56f4:269b:7cc0%2
Autoconfiguration IPv4 Address. . : 169.HIDING REST
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

Tunnel adapter isatap.{036390AA-826A-4E93-9D4A-225C693E62E2}:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface:

Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected
Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

I tried:

-cmd: dnsflush
-cmd: c:\netsh winsock reset
-cmd ipconfig /releasel
ipconfig /all
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew

netsh int ip set dns
-Restore PC a few days back.

Nothing helped.

Really need help!

There's no internet there.

169.something is self assigned when there is no reply from the DHCP server. Since I can't tell what PC, OS and more all I can share is that 169.something tells you something. Not much but something.

Assuming It's A Laptop....
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / October 8, 2015 3:04 PM PDT

...And assuming you haven't tried plugging the ethernet cable in to run a "wired" connection...... Did you accidentally turn off the wireless adapter? There should be a switch, of some sort, on the side or front of the computer.

Checked Device Manager to see if the ethernet and wireless drivers are installed?

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
