I've waded through the Internet and found nothing to fix this issue.

New HP Envy 750-114. It was running fine until yesterday. It is a wired Ethernet connection. WiFi works on all other devices in the house. I've reset the router a couple of times, but nothing. I've tried all suggested command prompts, to no avail.

Can anyone help me out? I'd be forever greatful!

Okay, I was able to fix it. Did a system restore, which repaired the IP issue, then changed the network from public back to private. Did a restart and after a few minutes it connected. I have no idea how these settings got changed, but I'm suspecting a system update.

Hopefully this helps someone else with the same issue.

I'm not a networking person, but I've seen this happen with Kaspersky Internet Security.

Never thought it would affect your ability to connect from home though.

I'm glad that you figured it out - thanks for letting us know!

My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
