Pleased to recover from loss of internet access

Our iPads, my iPhone, and my laptop computer all are swimmingly connected to the internet. Sadly my wife’s laptop had the message ‘WiFi invalid IP address’ when trying to access the internet. Therefore, unhappy wife.

Dear wife is currently out shopping. Me, like gorilla beating his chest, has succeeded in fixing the issue. Proud husband. Will be looking for a kiss and some sort of chocolate treat for my good work.

troubleshootAfter much lengthy fiddling, delving, and general pondering, did the sensible thing and looked for an answer on the Internet. Many solutions weren’t to my liking – don’t like resetting anything back to original settings unless absolutely necessary. Reason being is that it takes ages to renter passwords and settings.

So. Was pleased to find this YouTube video that suggested a ‘soft’ reset of network adapters. I’m not suggesting it could work for you in similar situations. It’s worth a try.
