Computer can update new windows downloads, but when I open any browser, i.e.; IE, FireFox, Chrome, I receive same info:: "Unable to connect to Internet".
I have updated all browsers via flash drive, Windows 8 is up to date, drivers to Qualcomm are updated and current. Basically, all drivers and software that requires updates, I have performed. I have 'uninstalled' browsers, re-installed.
One peculiar bit of info is when performing the troubleshoot for internet connections, I receive 'Network Cable not properly plugged in or may be broken' notice. I removed the bottom cover, visually inspected connections, carefully unplugged modem, gently blow out any debris and re-connected. Still receive same notice.
I have checked my Firewall settings, everything is on proper settings to connect to wifi. Wifi settings to my Belkin are correct and connected. Just no internet connection.
Rather baffling and annoying. Any suggestions?
