On Saturday i went on my desktop computer & found i can't get on the internet! The SuperHub3 seems to be working normally because I can use the Wifi signal to get on the internet on my mobile. All my modem's/desktop computer's wires are property plugged in. i tried the traditional switch everything off, then on again, but desktop still not showing any Internet signal. are there any problems in the Peterborough PE2 area? Should I phone 150 for help? I know 150 is free from my landline, but is it free from my Virgin mobile? is 150 open 24 hours a day?
well i'm completely shocked. as i said in the 1st post of this thread i had already tried rebooting my computer, but it didn't work. i just tried rebooting 1 last time...& it worked! my internet is suddenly working again! i'm confused, but happy.
Windows 10 updates automatically without your intervention. All but the professional editions have no way of preventing updates happening. Your issue should have cleared by now - see this sticky from VM:
If it is still problematic you'll have to post back, but before you do make sure win 10 update has installed the fix.
Superuser 2017/18 Use Kudos to say thanks Mark answer as "helpful" only when the problem is solved Please don't send me private messages unless I ask you to. I do not work for VM. The advice I give is based on my best understanding of VM policy and practice. You rely on it at your own risk.

All the time. Note that Microsoft have issued another update that fixes the issue, however you need to be able to get online first.
The issue is actually caused by DHCP not working properly. So in order to get round this you need to temporarily have your PC use a static address. Then let it update and you should be able to go back to using DHCP afterwards.
To set a static IP do the following
1. Right click on the Network Icon on the taskbar and select "Open Network and Sharing Center
2. Click Change adapter settings
3. Double click the network adapter you use to connect. I normally use Ethernet however if you use Wifi select that adapter instead.
4. You'll see the Window below - Select Properties
5. The next window looks a bit daunting but you simply need to double Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
6. Here's where we set the static IP use the following settings. I'm assuming you are using a Supoerhub. If not please advise.
7. Click Ok to close the window and again to close the previous window. At this point you should be connected.
This should allow you to get online and update windows.
Once you've gotten the latest update which addresses this you can either.
Keep the static address.
Reset the TCP/IP version 4 settings back to their defaults
The choice is yours. I prefer to stick with DHCP myself.
Edit - you could try the advice in the sticky linked by Howard first. Some have said it works for them but looking online there are others who have said it doesn't.
