I've come across a really perplexing issue here; I've had some serious internet problems over the last week or so (internet was barely working, and even then incredibly slowly). This seems to have resolved itself however, since it works again. Ever since then, however, I cannot access the internet on my PC over the wireless network. I can connect to the router just fine (ping to the Default Gateway works perfectly) and ping test to my laptop over the wifi connection also works fine. But whenever I try to ping any other address (i.e. google DNS), I get a 'Request Timed Out' Error message.

Now I know the internet works fine because laptop and phones are all working fine. Additionally, the internet works via an Ethernet connection on the PC in question. I've already flushed the DNS cache and I've already had the DHCP server assign me a new IP address via ipconfig /reset, ipcongif/renew. Additionally, I've reset the network adapter, made sure there's nothing going on with a proxy server and IPv6 and IPv4 addresses are set to be automatically obtained.

Like I said, the strange thing is the Ethernet connection works fine, without any problem whatsoever, and all other devices aren't having trouble with the WiFi. Firewall and anti-virus are also turned off, and I've scanned for viruses several times and haven't found anything. Anybody have any ideas on what's causing this?

    Can you show us your devices routing table? It sounds like you don't have a default gateway.

  • There is definately something broken here which should not be. Try doing a traceroute to so we can see for ourselves where it is dying. I'd also be inclined to reboot the router and see if that clears the problem up.

  • Why do you have two static DNS servers listed on subnets outside of your network for the wireless adapter? What is the relationship to & This seems wonky. Try statically setting the DNS to and let us know the results. Although this should only affect DNS lookups, i.e ping google.com Feb 8, 2019 at 13:57

Reset your IPv4 settings:

  • Run the command prompt as an administrator
  • Type in netsh interface ipv4 reset resetlog.txt
  • Restart your PC

This may solve the issue. Restart your PC and re-ping
