    Default Wifi works on desktop but not start menu

    My wifi suddenly stopped working for the Internet explorer app on the start menu. But when I go to the desktop and use it, it runs fine. Wifi signal is connected and normal in app and wifi in general just does not work for any apps in start menu such as email, ect.

    Whoa, now that's a strange one. Will, have to muse it a bit & maybe ask you some questions, soon.

    Default Re: Wifi works on desktop but not start menu

    I recently installed a new wifi router and when I set it up on the computer it prompted me if I wanted to make it the homegroup computer for file sharing or something like that and when I clicked ok (cuz in the options it said "click no for public computers and yes for personal computers") it updated my settings and as far as I k since then I haven't been able to use anything in the start menu that has anything to do with internet. could that be related to this?
