Connection between the router and my computer

Hi, I am writing this because for the past week I have had no internet on my computer at all.

I find it so annoying because it was going so well up until this past week. I never had any trouble with my internet until now.

Now, the main thing is that everyone else in my house can connect to the internet on their phones and laptops, but when it comes to my computer, the internet just doesn't seem to connect properly. I have tried various things to try to fix it, including going to internet options and going into LAN settings and all that. But nothing is positive outcome.

I noticed that my computer does connect to the wifi sometimes, but that doesn't last long before the same problem happens again.

If there is anyone that has had this problem or knows anything about this problem. Please respond to this. Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Connection between the router and my computer

Hello, I use wired connection. So you are suggesting that I reset my whole pc? If so then I will try!

Re: Connection between the router and my computer

Hi !

Instead of resetting whole system, I would try to uninstall and then reinstall network card. Also when you are connected via ethernet cable, what is the status of the connection ? Are there any errors, or question marks ? Also, is your network card set to obtain IP address over DHCP or is it set manually ? Please post as much information as you can...

Re: Connection between the router and my computer

It says it's connected when I click on the wifi icon, but when I go on chrome it doesn't load anything. Also I can't play any games online obviously. I have had a pc specialist come to my house and he couldn't even fix it. This has been an ongoing problem for about a week now
