Lost Internet Connection

  Dorset123 10:00 25 Nov 2008

Carried out a sfc /scannow to try and fix a USB drive fault but its made things worse and now cannot get a internet connection as well.
Anyone got any ideas.

Mank Thanks

not much info but first power down modem/router and pc,after 5 minutes switch modem/router back on,let the lights do theie thing and switch pc back on.if that doesn't work and you are using internet explorer,go into control panel-internet options-advanced-reset.if you're not using internet explorer or that doesn't work post back with more information and i'm sure someone with more knowledge than myself will assist you :o)

How is your modem connected to the PC?
Ethernet cable / wireless / usb port?

The connection is Ethernet cable from this
computer to the wireless router

check in device manger that there are no error symbols against the ethernet card drivers.

Can you access the router from your PC by entering the router IP address into your browser's address bar, e.g

(As smackheaqdz says it is easier to offer help if we know more about your set up. What make router, what O/S, which browser you are using etc. How did scannow make things worse?)
