Acer laptop internet connection problems

  martd7 13:42 17 Feb 2018

My friend has an Acer laptop,spec intel i3,8gb ram,1tb hard drive

He asked me to look at his laptop as he's having problems with internet

Edge browser doesn't open at all,Firefox comes up internal server 500 error,but if I click on another tab it works

Looking at network settings gives the connected message

Any help appreciated

First - power - restart (not shutdown)

see if edge works then.

I've relayed your instructions onto my friend but he's come back to say he still has the same problem
