I wonder why this is? And its not just like its one or two, but its like a hole bunch. Like sometimes ill get the IP addresss and the subnet mask, but not the router or DNS number? What does this mean tho? Its raelly annoying.

I agree..it is annoying. Sometimes i get the ip address listed, mask, no dns, etc. I read somewhere that you need to change the dns and still that doesn't work. I've opened up safari thinking there is an 'accept' button. I'll sometimes see full wifi bars in the wifi screen but Edge never leaves the top of the screen. If i had to put a number on it i would say 9 out of 10 open wifi spots I've tried to connect to fail.

Exactly, how do you change the DNS? and yeah, i unblocked popup windows on safari for that reason, but still nothing.
