My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


I see that you have been working on this problem for quite a bit of time.

Do you still need help with this problem? If so, may I start a screen sharing session on your computer and help you resolve the problem? I will send a remote link within minutes after your response, so please keep refreshing the page.

I'm writing all of this on my iPad at the minute as I can't access the internet on my PC. I tried typing your address in but because there is no internet connection it won't connect.
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.

Thank you for the update.

Is it connected wirelessly or with a cable to the router?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
My PC? It's connected via a router which is in the same room
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.


HOW is it connected? Is it wireless or is it connected via a cable?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
It's wireless
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.

Okay.

Plug it into the router with a cable and see if you can access the Internet that way.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I've connected a cable and it still isn't working
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.
Please, follow the instructions below to solve your problem:
- Click the Start Button > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
- Choose to Restore to an earlier time > Click Next.
- Choose a date at least one week before you started experiencing your problem.
- Click NEXT > NEXT > NEXT.

After that is finished, test the Internet once more.


Is that working?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I've been doing that for the past 2 weeks and yes the internet starts working again but the computer updates itself and that's when it stops working again.
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.
Very good.

DO that, please. Do that.

Once you are up, we can start the remote application and I will solve this for you.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Ok. I'll do that now
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.
Thank you.

After I typed ping 4.2.2.3, it's says reply from 4.2.2.3 etc

After ping red.com, it says reply from etc

I followed all of these steps and the internet is still not working.
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.

Well, this doesn't make a lot of sense.

I was working under the assumption that you were still plugged into the router.

Please, follow the instructions below:
- Click the Start Button
- Type: devmgmt.msc
- Hit Enter
- Click the plus sign next to Network Adapters
- Right click the Wired network adapter.
- Choose Uninstall. Uninstall Device.
- Right click another item in the list and choose "Scan for Hardware Changes"
- Choose to automatically install the device (click next > next > Finish)

Once that is complete, test the connection once more.

Thank you.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
There is no wired network adaptor option
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.

It will not be called "Wired adapter".

What do you have under network adapters?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Under network adapters
1)Microsoft virtual wifi mini port adapter
2)Ralink rt5390 802.11b/ g/n wifi adapter
3)Realtek pcie fe family controller
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Relist: Other.
Not replying but it's maybe because it's the weekend
Expert:  Jason Jones replied 3 years ago.

When you "relist" the question as you did, I am not notified of any messages you post.

The REALTEK PCI-E controller is the wired adapter. Right click it, choose uninstall, and continue.
