Laptop running Windows 8 won't connect to internet


Recommended Posts

My lads laptop running Windows 8 refuses to connect to the internet. I have pinged the router and the connection is good, but if I ping wesites it will not connect. I though at first it was a browser problem, but neither IE or firefox would connect. I pulled up a comand line and pinged bbc.co.uk, Google, and youtube but it will not connect. He insists he has not been fiddling. We have cleared cache, temp files etc, shut down and powered on to no avail.

 

Any ideas welcome

Stand down. I rebooted the router and all is well.
