Hello, I've come across a strange issue with my Internet connection. For the past two days, I haven't been able to connect to the Internet. I'm using Windows 7. It had been working before that and I didn't do any updates. I didn't install anything either. And Windows says it's currently connected too but when I try to visit a web page, it just times out. What should I look into here for this issue?

    You can try to flush DNS/IP by providing this command in command prompt with admin rights like ipconfig/flushdns. Also check either IPv6 is disable or not. Clear all browsing data/history. Also check if the browser mode is not set as work offline.

    How do you connect to the internet?

    Do you have other devices that use the same connection? If so, are they able to surf the web?

    You may need to re-boot your router and possibly modem as well. I had issues where it could connect to the router but had no internet access. Reboot the DSL modem and everything started working again. It may also be an issue with your network adapter. Try rebooting and if you still have problems come back and we can try something else.
