    Default I hate technology!

    I can't get on the internet with my laptop

    All of my other Wi-Fi devices (including my Surface tablet which I'm using to post this) can get online, but not my laptop

    I've looked at every setting I know of...
    ...run trouble shooter...
    ...had my internet settings "forget" my Wi-Fi password so I could reenter it...
    ...but nothing has worked

    I right clicked on the icon that shows all of the Wi-Fi signals available, clicked on "Open Network and Sharing Center," clicked on "Connections: [graphic shows how many Wi-Fi bars my current connection is picking up] Wi-Fi ([name of Wi-Fi connection]); which gives me my "Wi-Fi Status." The 1st 3 lines of which states:

    IPv4 Connectivity: Internet
    IPv6 Connectivity: No network access
    Media State: Enabled

    What is IPv6 Connectivity and what do I need to do to change the setting? Could this fix my problem?

    P.S. Didn't we use to have an emoji of someone smashing their computer with a sledgehammer? That's the 1 that truly expresses my feelings right now

    IPv6 uses six sections for an IP address rather than four. It is not commonly used in the public realm, most often found in business situations.

    I would say that's not your problem.

    So can any of you tell me why my list of available Wi-Fi connections say that I'm connected, but my browser says I'm not? I've not only had this problem at home for the past several days, but also at Culver's where I'm at right now.

    Have you checked for pending updates to your computer? Maybe your browser is outdated? Maybe it's time to trade in the logos computer?

    I've shut it down several times since this problem started, & just now checked again, there's no mention of any updates needing my approval to install.

    As far as my computer, it was originally a Windows 8 that I upgraded to Windows 10 shortly after the free upgrade became available.

    Considering I bought it from a used computer store sometime between late 2013 and early 2014, its probably close enough to being at least that old.

    Unless you bought a really nice machine you can expect it to start to fail after that much time.

    If I can ever afford to buy a really nice machine, its your 1st clue that I've won the lottery or started knocking over convenience stores

    Seriously, my family's very first personal-home computer was a Commodore 64 that I used for about a dozen years. Programmers quit making programs for it long before it quit on me

    Lottery or convenience stores: there's gotta be some middle ground there
