Default Re: Broadband not connecting?

Not sure but try these cmds from a command prompt run as an administrator -

netsh winsock reset

netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

shutdown /r /t 00

This would be classed as a reboot so you would need to cold boot to see if they have resolved.

Sometimes the Internet can be blocked by an antivirus program and it may need to be reinstalled, but go into Device Manager/View/Show hidden devices when you first experience this to check for any yellow alerts.

The network adapter you are using may need a driver update/reinstall.

Resetting the router could also help.

You can power cycle it by switching it and the computer off for a couple of minutes after disconnecting all cables.

Reconnect the cables and switch just the router on and when all of its lights are on, switch the computer back on to see how it performs.

It could also be a DNS issue, but see how you get on with those suggestions.

I've removed your other thread.
