    Having some trouble with networking - advice needed

    Yes, I did reset the router (several times actually). As for wires, the main PC connects to the internet through the DSL modem/router just fine, so the cable should not be faulty. As for the laptop, its connection is wireless, so there are no wires to check *Slap :slap:

    However, your suggestion did give me an idea. I connected the laptop to the switch directly with a cable, and disabled the wireless connection. I'm getting an error that says "network is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this network source... (yada-yada-yada)... The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available."

    @ wiak - I have McAfee's firewall on the laptop, the same as it always was. I had it on the PC, too, but the subscription for the Internet Security Suite expired, so I uninstalled it, set up XP's standard firewall on the PC, and have installed Avast for anti-virus. I can try XP's firewall on the laptop, too.

    • Go to Settings (gear icon).
    • Select Network and Internet.
    • Then Wi-Fi.
    • Make sure the Wi-Fi radio button is On.

    Window 10 in an outdated laptop having trouble with networking.

    network connection Windows 10

    Hi Kamile,

    Let's get your laptop connected. A few possible reasons can be the cause of this issue. To help us identify the cause of this problem, we would like to know the following information:

    • Are you able to see the router in the available wireless networks list on your laptop?
    • Do you receive any error messages when connecting to the router? If yes, what is the exact error message?
    • Are you connected to the router but experience no Internet connectivity?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?

    In the meantime, let's run the Network troubleshooter. This troubleshooter finds and fixes common connection problems. Here's how:

    • Click Start.
    • Start typing Network problems, and then select
      Identify and repair network problems
      in the results.
    • Follow the steps in the troubleshooter and see if that fixes the problem.

    An outdated or incompatible network adapter driver can also cause connection problems. Driver updates for Windows 10 and many devices (such as network adapters) are automatically downloaded and installed through Windows Update. While it's likely you already
    have the most recent driver, if you're having trouble with a device, you can try fixing it by

    updating the driver or reinstalling it
    .

    Keep us updated on the status of the issue, and we will be glad to assist you further.
