I am able to set the WiFi connection between my Lenovo 5570 laptop having Windows 7 Home Premium and the Xperia SL with Android OS (Ice cream sandwich version). The problem is that I am not able to access the internet even though both the devices are connected with excellent signal strength.
Kindly suggest the solution to rectify.
Is there any problem from my antivirus? I mean is that blocking the external devices to access it? I don't know how I can disable such things. As of now I am not getting any pop ups as such.
Additional information: (from the comments, added here by Izzy)
- disabling the Firewall does not help
- disabling/uninstalling AntiVirus from the Laptop does not help
- mobile device only shows "connected" when configured with a static IP, but fails completely via DHCP (tries to configure the IP and then shows Limited connectivity)
