no internet

Recommended Posts


hope this is the right place to post,

my sister has got a problem with her laptop for a few months now,

when she tries to connect to the web, her wifi connection shows as connected but the internet is not connecting.

after trying many different solutions, i did a factory reset, but she still cannot access the internet.

this is driving me crazy

thanks for any help

Will it connect via a wired connection?

and save it to your desktop

Disable any script blocker if your Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware has it.

Once downloaded you can disconnect from the Internet and disable your Ant-Virus temporarily if needed.

Then double click
to run the tool.

When done, the
will open.

Click Yes at the next prompt for Optional Scan.

    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:

  1. DDS.txt

  2. Attach.txt

  • Save both reports to your desktop
  • Please include the following logs in your next reply:

Well after reviewing your Event Logs you have something going on preventing windows security updates from working.

I believe you can probably obtain free support from Microsoft as this issue is preventing security updates from being applied.

Just open a case online if you can or call in if you have to and explain that your security updates are not installing and provide them the Event Log information like this.

Error: Microsoft-Windows-Servicing [4385] - Windows Servicing failed to complete the process of changing update

using the lan connection i managed to download and install 79 updates!!

after which 4 more were required, one of which was for the atheros network adapter, once this was installed everything was fine , wireless connection worked a treat.

my sister has now been shown how to set system restore points (weekly)

and to use windows update, set to auto update.

have recommended MBAM, Avira, and a few others for safety.

thanks for the help, its a great site, which i am spreading the word about.
