    Hi Andrew,

    There can be several point of failures in this issue. To isolate the root cause and resolve this issue, you may follow the steps below:

    1) Ensure the connections are firm and the network cable is properly connected to the computer.

    2) Check 'Device Manager' to see the make and model of the network card.

    To access 'Device Manager', press Windows key + R > Type ‘devmgmt.msc’ > Hit Enter. Under 'Network adapters', you will find the wireless card listed.

    Once you get to know the network card, you may install the updated drivers for your wireless/Ethernet card from the manufacturer's website.

    3) Try resetting the TCP/IP stack.

    To reset the TCP/IP stack go to the following article. Either click on "Fix it for me" or follow the instructions to fix it yourself: http://bit.ly/3TrgcU
