Have you run the troubleshooter?

open Settings
Open Update & Security.
Navigate to Troubleshoot.
Click on the Internet Connection Troubleshooter.
Wait for the procedure to finish and possibly resolve your issues

what does the troubleshooter tell you?

Hi Folks Thanks for your replies. The troubleshooter states that I need an ethernet connection.

Do you use an ethernet connection. If so maybe switch your router off for 1 minute then start it again and then retart your computer

Most probably you've no drivers for the wlan card. If it's an issue to move the PC near the router to connect via ethernet , so you can search the PC's manufacturer's site for the wireless driver, then I suggest getting a cheap WiFi dongle, for now, to at least get an internet connection for troubleshooting.
