I'm connected to Wifi on my laptop. I can access internet from the Desktop fine, but none of the metro (or whatever they're called now) apps can access the internet. For example, IE when opened on the Desktop, has no problem, but when opened from the tile, it won't connect.

The baffling thing is everything was working fine until a few days ago. Does anybody have any pointers as to what might be the problem? I've Googled around with no success.

Proxy settings? Does it work for other user accounts? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Dec 14 '12 at 0:23
@techie007, there's no proxy. – Rabin Dec 14 '12 at 1:28
@Karan, I actually saw them before posting this. They have similar but not the same problem. – Rabin Dec 14 '12 at 1:29
That's why I did not mark this as a duplicate. :) – Karan Dec 14 '12 at 2:00
