I take a class in the building of a business and we sometimes use their internet via Wi-Fi. In the last few weeks, though, some of our notebooks haven't been able to connect to the internet even though they are connected to the router. It affected first a few of us and then all of us.
Last week I tweaked around the network settings on the router (yes, the admin password is the same as the network key) and even moved the internet cable on the router from port 1 to the internet port. None of this really worked so I put things more or less back as I found them and alerted someone that someone who knew more than me had better have a look at the router.
So, I don't know if anybody has had a look at it but now 2 of us can again connect to the internet. I had a look at the router settings last week and I really couldn't see what might be creating this issue.
What might be the problem?
Edit May 19: So today I got there and had no internet access. Somebody else in the building with a laptop did. By the end of the three hour class, I did and he didn't. So I'm guessing it has to do something with IPs. I'm thinking either two people are getting assigned the same IP or IPs are getting assigned that somehow don't route to the internet. Of course I could be (and likely am) way off base. I know not much about networking...
