Wifi Connected, But Cannot Use Internet. Urgent!

  Jack Gilbert 12:17 15 Apr 2018

I have connected to my wifi. A few settings changed on Firefox which allows me to use the internet on the browser, but i cannot use anything else which connects to the internet.. discord, steam, windows updater and even the good old internet explorer. I currently have no Anti Virus Software. I have tried the troubleshoot which says.. '' The remote device or resource wont accept the connection''. Ive gone down suggested routes using CMD and uninstalling netowork drivers and re installing. Reset router and still no luck. Any help please? Urgent due to using pc for work. Thanks for the help :)

Try resetting the Firewall back to default in case that is blocking the internet connections.

Still no luck, i have also tried looking into updating windows 10 but it says it cant connect. Also forgot to add. I had a windows update on the 10th April and since then i have had troubles

Can you do/have you tried a restore to before the 10/4 update?

Ive managed to restore the pc back to the 10/4 Update, and it is working again. So big thanks to that! But its asking me to install the windows updates again, Im guessing this is what caused the problem in the first place, so what should i do? Thanks again

You can't choose which updates to install with Windows 10.

You could go to services and disable windows updates and stop it from running. That would stop it temporarily but yo really need it updating at least once a month.
