Default Play store not working on WiFi but works on cellular, problem

Hello I got a problem yesterday.

My play store won't logg in when I'm connected to a WiFi. But it works on the cellular connection.

I tried the following that I found online.

Wiping data, etc from the app.
Disabling it and restarting the app.
Same and restarting phone.
Changing the date and time
Changing it back to auto
Forgetting the WiFi and adding it again
I tried modifying he hosts file
Flash the gapps all over again.

Nothing helps, and I think some other Google services isn't working properly either.

I tried disabling juicedefender and adblock plus, the only two things I suspected, but nothing.

Any ideas? This is crippling my phone [emoji53]

Okey, this is what you need to do if you get the playstore problem. With adblock and adaway.

You need to be rooted.

Download hosts editor and add

First row

Second row
android.clients.google.com

Save and reboot.

Is this your own wi-fi, or are you using a hotspot provided by a restaurant, supermarket, Kinkos, etc? Hotspots from places like this often require you to "log in". If this is the case, you need to load a browser and try going to a page, and you'll be directed to their own page, where you'll have to accept their terms and conditions in some manner, then you'll be good to go with Play Store and whatever else.
Relax, go nutz!

My own, I noticed that it's a common problem after some google-fu
