No Internet (with wireless connection) in Windows 7

A quick note: we have had a couple of PCs show a wireless connection with no internet.  The PCs are unable to get an IP address from the server.  We have done the following to correct this:

  • Open the Local Security Policy (type “security” in Start Menu search box)
  • Click on “Network List Manager Policies” in left pane
  • In right pane, double click on “Unidentified Networks”
  • For Location type, choose “Public”
  • For User permissions, choose “User can change location”

Check wireless connection to ensure it went through and is providing internet.
