Ok..

Ok, tell me what network card do you have in your second laptop (I mean this one which works wrong) and did you use external netword cards? They can be a solution for you. I recommend TOTOLINK network cards.

Maybe you should reinstall your network card drivers to new ones?

Tell me if it helped you. Happy

Just fixed one like that.

The last case was "Out of date router firmware."

I see someone covered the old machine driver angle.

I would need network information, on both laptops via Command prompt. Once I get this I will be able to determine the difference to check why one laptop can access the internet but the other one does not.
Just type cmd on Windows search button, once it turns up type ipconfig. I need the ip address and default gateway on both laptops so just paste as per this example:
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.1.6
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.1.1
