Hi,

I am getting this error while I was able to connect to same network in the morning.
Issue seems to be with default gateway / DHCP. Below are ipconfig log:

Are the Wireless Network drivers installed? Can you even see your home SSID on your new laptop? Verify the drivers in Device Manager by going to Control Panel - Device Manager - Netowrk Adapters. You should see one for your ethernet port and one for your wireless.

Also you might have a static IP address on your wireless device under network adapters. You'll need to check that as well and make sure it's set to Dynamic.
