Open Run command box by pressing Windows key+R, type services.msc and press
Enter . Locate DHCP Client and check if it is enabled or disabled. If disabled then enable it and see whether the problem still remains or not.
Open Run command box by pressing Windows key+R, type cmd and press
Enter . In the command prompt, type ipconfig/all and press Enter. Now check the IP address, default gateway, DNS etc. If you find all the information are correct but you still can't access the Internet then whether the wireless
network you are connecting is secured or not. To determine look at the Wireless network icon in the taskbar and click on it. It will show the available wireless networks. If there is a "yellow shield" present on the network icon then the network is not secured,
if there's no "yellow shield" present then the network is secure. In a secure network you might need a "Network Security Key". In that case try to disable the "Network Security Key" option for that network. To do this:
Open Control Panel , click Network and Internet , click
Network and Sharing Center , click Manage wireless networks from left.
From the list select the wireless network and right-click, select Properties, on the
Security tab disable all options i.e., in Security type select
No authentication (Open) and in Encryption type select None . You may also enable the automatic connectivity and SSID settings for further strengthening the connectivity, in the connection tab click to select
the "Connect automatically when this network is in range " and "Connect even if the network is not broadcasting its name (SSID) check-boxes.

If the problem still remains then check your firewall settings and make sure that the firewall isn't blocking your Internet connectivity. Some Antivirus software has built-in firewall and they by default blocks any connection unknown for tightening security.
Try to restore default settings for the Windows Firewall. Open Control Panel
click Network and Internet click System and Security , click
Windows Firewall , click Restore Defaults .
