"Hi,

First of all try this:

Use Windows ""Troubleshoot problem"" (right mouse click on the network icon on the task bar near to the clock).Open ""Device manager"" and find your Wi-Fi card (something like Atheros, Realtek, Broadcom, etc.). Press the right mouse key on it an uninstall the driver. Now restart the PC and Windows will reinstall the WLan driver. This will reset your Wi-Fi driver.If this not fix your problem then you need to open the laptop and reconnect the wlan card.The final step is Wi-Fi card replacement."

Make sure you are not using a static IP Address. Go to Network & Sharing, click on the network you are trying to join. Next right-click on Properties. Then double click Internet Protocol Version 4 TCP/IPv4. Make sure you are obtaining your IP address and the DNS server automatically. Same with alternate configuration. If that doesn't work uncheck IPv6 in the properties tab.

Just solved this issue on my HP laptop, Go to Start, Type Command prompt, A black box will appear type ipconfig then space /release Then hit enter This will disconnect all wifi addresses. Then after you see all the configurations pop up, Type ipconfig/renew This should solve your problem, It worked on mine, Good Luck
