I have windows 8.1 on an HP Envy 23 Touchsmart PC. I read through and tried all the fixes in a similar thread with no luck. My PC says it is connected with full bars showing through the control panel although I have no bars showing from the icon at the bottom right of the screen even though when I hover the mouse over it it says I am connected. My iPad and phone work fine and are connected to the same connection.

I tried turning everything off including all devices and unplugging router and PC, waiting a couple of minutes and starting up again. All other devices work fine except the PC. Again it says perfectly connected but will not connect to any page. Errrrrrr

I'm close to tapping it here and there with a hammer, seems to work on my vehicles. I thank you in advance for any potential fixes.

I had a client with the very same symptoms yesterday, uninstalling Bonjour returned things to normal. For some reason HP thought it was a good idea to start installing it on all of their systems.
