Ok, I have a dell desktop that will not connect to the internet even though it states I have connection. Right now, I plugged the cable into my laptop so I could try to get on here and solve this issue. So obviously it can't be the modem if it's working for this. The desktop worked perfectly fine last night and all I did was properly shut it off and today when I got on, it says it could not be connected. I've tried checking the LAN settings and troubleshooting and doing what I could, but nothing is helping. Is there anything I can do? Dell never helps me with my problems, so I never try calling them anymore!! I've tried restarting it numerous times too. The LAN settings state that everything is fine, but I just can't seem to connect. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
