Problem with Macbook air automatically not acquiring free wifi network dns or router address

Problem with Macbook air automatically not acquiring free wifi network dns or router address

I have this problem when my macbook air sometimes does not connect to free wifi hotspots. When the problem happens and I try to run the diagnostics, it normally gets to yellow network settings tab. It seems that it for some reason does not acquire automatically the router or dns address. Sometimes after I shut it down and restart it magically connects to the wifi hotspot but it is very inconsistent. Anyone knows a fix for this problem?

"You could try setting IPv6 to OFF :

System Preferences > Network >
Advanced > TCP/IP : Configure iPv6:
Off (local only)

You could also try disabling flow-control :

System Preferences -> Network ->
Advanced -> Ethernet -> Configure
Manually -> Change ""Duplex"" setting
from ""full-duplex, flow-control"" to
just ""full-duplex"""
