sorry for not responding right away, i fixed my internet soon after making this thread by formatting. it had never been formatted in the 3 years i've had the machine so i figured now was as a good a time as any. it fixed the problem up until two nights ago, then the same thing happened again. i system restored to 1 night prior the event and that fixed the problem until the next morning. the exact same thing happened on my dads machine as well on the same day and i fixed it the same way. then i realized the issue was the latest microsoft security update. removed that on both machines and now both can access the internet with no issue.
