I want to connect my Lenovo Ideapad S510p(Windows8) to the WiFi network of my TP-LINK modem-router. But the laptop does not finds no WiFi network although I can get it with my cellphone and connect to it.
I checked the DHCP leases list of my modem and laptop's mac address was there and there was an IP address associated to the laptop.
But when I ping that IP from my desktop, I get "Reply from Destination host unreachable" where is my desktop's IP.
What should I do?

To see a list of available networks

Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, and then click Settings.)

Check the network icon. It'll show if you’re connected and how strong the connection is.
If you’re not connected, tap or click the network icon (The wireless network icon or The wired network icon).

Tap or click the name of the network you want to connect to, and then tap or click Connect.

You might be asked for the network password. You can get it from the network admin. If you’re at home, this is probably someone in your family. If you’re at work, ask your IT admin. If you’re in a public place, like a coffee shop, ask someone who works there.

If you want to connect to this network every time it's in range, select the Connect automatically check box.
