    Default Windows 8 wireless is ok but no internet connection

    Hey guys,

    I need your help in weirder windows 8 connection problem. If you can come up a fix for this, many thanks in advance.

    I have just installed windows 8 beta last week, now i can access the wireless networkand printer but no internet connectivity. With the wireless, I can join and dis-join the laptop with the domain.
    IP config shows correct settings. I can ping the firewall.

    I have tried many ways and there still no internet connection. Have you experienced the same in windows 8? hope you guys can come up a fix in this!

    any help in this would be highly appreciated.

    1. Use other static DNS



    a. Click "Start" menu, type "ncpa.cpl" (without quotation marks) in Search Box and press "OK".

    b. Select your local network.

    c. Click Properties, then select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

    d. Click Properties.

    e. In the Internet Protocol window, let's change the "Preferred DNS server" to 208.67.222.222

    f. Click 'OK' twice to complete the modification.



    If the issue persists, please repeat the steps and change the "Preferred DNS server" to 208.67.220.220.



    2. Put the machine in another Wireless network and check whether it can access Internet normally. If so, I suggest you replace another encryption type for a test, such as WEP.



    3. Reset WinSock



    a. Click Start, click "All programs", and click "Accessories".

    b. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator". If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    c. Please enter the following command, and press Enter.
