    Internet connection button doesn't work

    My Internet connection icon/button (either on the desktop to the right of the task bar or on the settings when you slide in from right) doesn't work...

    I mean when I click it it does absolutely nothing. Also, when I open the network and sharing center after clicking change adapter settings it loads forever..

    Someone please help me, I've got work to do and I need the Internet.. I don't know what to do I can't keep switching to Ubuntu..

    Is it wireless or wired

    Does it ask you for a password?

    Is there a red X or a yellow exclaimation point on your internet icon?
