  2. If it connected mean the driver work just fine. But the driver may cause the problem (there are few case). So which wireless did ur laptop use? atheros, intel or broadcom, ill try to get the other version fr that

    you can also try
    Open network connection and right click on the wireless, select the Internet Protocol Version 4(IPV4) by double click.
    make sure set the IP address and DNS to automatic.

    Firewall may be the issue and you can try to turn off the firewall.
