    As far as realistic solutions go, I must 1st identify my needs in order of priority:

    1) I need any and all solutions to be as cheap as possible without it being unreliable, or too much a hassle for someone who is as inept with technology as I am to set up and operate.

    2) I need a computer with a keyboard large enough for me to proficiently use. Iím 6í3Ē & have hands proportionate to someone that size, so my Surfaceís mini-keyboard just doesnít cut it.

    3) I need internet access

    4) I need to be able to project PowerPoint presentations on to screens for the benefit of audiences.

    As far as options that Iím considering, in order of least to most expensive:

    1) Other than the Wi-Fi issues, my laptop is still fully functional. Both it and my Surface have Bluetooth capability, and the laptop settings include, ďProjecting to this PC.Ē So if I can get the 2 to ďplay nicely together,Ē then it should be able to solve all of my problems. I bet youíve already guessed what the biggest problem to my plan is, Iím too inept with technology to make it work. However, Iím going to get together with a friend on Saturday who is reasonably competent, so hopefully he can figure out how to make it work.

    2) Buy a full size Bluetooth keyboard that is compatible with my Surface. It would need to include at least 2 USB ports for my mouse and flash drives.

    3) Buy a cheap desktop with a Bluetooth keyboard to do my major projects on at home, then transferring them to the Surface when necessary. It should be able to be set it up so Iím using the TV that I already own as a monitor.

    4) Buy a cheap laptop to replace the old 1.

    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
    Disable IPv6, you most likely don't use that.
    Your list shows you do actually have internet access but for some reason you are not getting any response so you have something configured wrong or blocking.

    Try to clear any proxy settings in your Internet Settings.
    Disable your internet security or antivirus software and test to see if you can get to yahoo or google (re-enable your internet security/antivirus)

    what operating system you using, you stated it is a little older and you could be using XP or Win7... reset your stack.
    Windows XP: click CTRL + R and in the box type "netsh int ip reset"
    Windows XP SP2: click CTRL + R and in the box type "netsh winsock reset all"
    Windows 7: Press Windows logo + R and in box type "netsh int ip reset"

    Restart your computer and see if that helps

    If neither of those work open a command prompt and type ipconfig. Look in the list for what is listed as 'IPv4 Address', at home this should be something like 192.168.0.10 or 192.168.1.12. The 10 or 12 could be anything... if you get an address there you are connecting to your wifi, unless its a 169 address. Now look at that list again and find the number for 'Default Gateway', will be something like 192.168.0.1, get that number and type it into the address bar of your internet browser.

    If you are connected to the wifi correctly you will be prompted for a login to your router and the problem is a configuration in your router which you will need to eithere look at or have your provider look at.
