Recently, my latop has become unable to connect to wi-fi networks. Troubleshooting gives the answer "Wi-fi has no Valid IP configuration". The wifi connection works on all other devices, and shows that there is "No Internet, Secured" under the network icon.

My laptop is an Acer Aspire s7, and has no ethernet port.

Anyone have any suggesions as to how I might go about fixing this? All help is appreciated,

Try this....

1. Go to "Control Panel".

2. Next go to "Network and Internet" and then "Network and Sharing".

3. Now click on "Manage Wireless Networks".

4. On this screen, remove all wireless connections by "right clicking" on it and select "Remove network" from the drop down menu.

5. After doing this, close the open windows and reboot the computer.

6. Once the computer is fully reloaded, scan for the "Wi-Fi networks".

7. Click on the available network that you want to access and select "connect".

8. It takes a moment, but then you will be asked to give a password for your Wi-Fi connection. Type in the password and click the "connect" button.

It should now be connected.

NOTE: If this doesn't work, you may want to reset your modem/router, and then once it is fully loaded again, repeat the above steps.

I find it rather odd that the laptop doesn't have a port for connecting via Ethernet. Not seen that before.
