wireless issues

I am having a problem connecting to the internet wirelessly through a pc. it says it is connected and the signal is good, yet when ever i try to browse the internet it wont display the page and that its unable to connect to, this happens regardless of what page.

i know the router is working as i also setup his laptop with the same adapter and it works a treat, i tried the adapter from the pc in the laptop and it also works a treat, so it's something to do with the pc. i have tried this with the firewall enabled and disabled, i have manually configured the ip settings. i have uninstalled the adapter software and reinstalled, but still not working.

Problem description is a little vague

What you have described sounds like a wireless adapter that is not receiving a DHCP address. When you have this problem you should open a DOS window and type "ipconfig". If you see an address of or 169.x.y.z, then DHCP failed. What model adapter and router are you using. Try upgrading the router. Are you using Windows to manage wireless or the software application that came with the adapter?

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?
