Hey everyone. I have a month old acer timeline aspire M5-481T with windows 7 and a Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter and since moving last week have been having an absolute headache with connecting to our new internet. The computer seems to work just fine with connecting to any place in public that I go, and it was working just last week at the house I was living in to connect to the network. We just set up our new wifi with comcast xfinity and everyone in the house can connect to wireless except for me!
I have tried updating drivers, all the troubleshooting, etc. I even took the computer into the microsoft store and had them check everything out for viruses and everything checks out fine. When I plug in the ethernet directly from the modem, the internet works just fine, but when I try and connect wirelessly, it asks me for the network password, i type it in, it CONNECTS, but instead of saying "HOME" like it does on everyone elses computer, it says "Public Unidentified network" on mine with "no internet access"
Has anyone else gotten this error? I did a troubleshoot and it mentioned something about the network adapter. As stated above, this is a brand new computer so it's extremely frustrating because it has always connected right away, and now it won't work in my own home.
