i hav a dell laptop with win 8 loaded. when i access internet on my laptop at home it works fine, but as soon as i switch my wireless connectivity i.e when i access the internet at my office it does not catch the connectivity initially.But when i restart my laptop and every thing becomes normal and is accessible. why does this happen is it related to the OS or wireless drivers. kindly guide.

Rather than restart your laptop each time do the following:

Open up command prompt (hit the windows button and type 'cmd') Type: ipconfig /release (hit return) ipconfig /renew (hit return) ipconfig /flushdns (hit return)

Can almost garuntee that your connectivity issue will be sorted doing this.

Saves a lot of time too rather than restarting your laptop.

The other way could be disabling your wireless also

Sometimes it helps to deactivate the wifi adapter, then activating it again. – ott-- Jul 16 '13 at 9:07
