    Can't get wireless internet on DELL 4050N


    I've clean intalled W10 on a notebbok but cant get internet to work. It connects to the router but that yellow exclamation shows up in the taskbar icon. The adapter is a DELL 7015 with an Atheros chipset.

    The network was defined as publuc and I changed it to private using gpedit, but still no go.

    Any ideas?

    Any code errors on device manager?
    Can you also check the network details and see if you get a local IP address and default gateway IP address?

    I would also try to check to see if the router is leasing an IP to your Dell.

    There's no error in device manager, I get an IP address and default gateway is correct. I'm using the drivers for Windows 8.1 what are supposed to be compatible.
