wireless can connect but cannot browse
Before I got my laptop reformatted the wireless connection on it was working fine. It works fine everywhere else but at my friend's house. I can pick up her wireless connection, the signal is very good, but for some reason I can't browse the internet. I tried repairing the connection but I get a message saying that it cannot renew the IP address. I tried unplugging the modem and everything. I went to the command prompt to ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew my IP, but i get a message telling me that "no operation can be performed on Local Area Connection while it has its media disconnected." I also did the ipconfig /all command, and I saw that there was a No next to IP Routing Enabled and WINS Proxy Enabled. I don't know what else to do, and this was my last resort. If this doesn't work, I think I'll have to get a new computer . I'm completely computer illiterate, so can somebody please help me out step by step? I appreciate anyone for helping!!
