I have an HP Envy 2 tablet running Windows 8.1 Pro.
It's been working happily for a while, however the Wi-fi was getting a little unreliable. I've had a go at fixing it but now seem to have broken it beyond repair. Sadly I cannot tell you what I did to stop it working as I've tried so many things to fix - I'm confused.
The tablet is set-up are part of a domain on Windows Server 2012. Lots of other devices are working fine on the network, other laptops, desktops, iphones etc... Wi-fi is working fine everywhere.
The tablet lives in an office 2m away from the Wi-fi router - so trust me it's close enough.
I get 5 bars of Wi-fi strength but for the life of me cannot get it to connect to the internet.
I can see the shared network drives and see the files on them, so am getting some connectivity
I am unable to ping the router at 192.168.1.1 reliably - sometimes works - sometime does not
I am unable to ping the server at 192.168.1.16 reliably - sometimes works - sometime does not
I've tried resetting the network adapter, reinstalling the Wi-fi device drivers, rebooting everything many times, renewing, releasing leases, resetting the DNS, changing from DHCP to fixed IP addresses, banging it and screaming - all to no avail.
Would love some further help please from a network God to get me connected again.
