    PC = laptop??? For now, try connecting via Ethernet directly to the modem to get whatever you need to do done. Are you saying you can't connect to internet when installing? You can install without being connected.

    Yes PC=LaptopI am connected to the internet but the installer saies it cant connect to the internet...tried connecting via lan connected to the router but same problem happens... also tried the run as administrator option but the same problem occurs. The problem occurs after i have entered the product key and clicked next when it gets more things ready... And yes you need internet connection for this upgrade cause it has to download the installation files to your hard drive.... So i am lookig around the web to find an iso so i can burn it to usb and run the setup exe file

    Try what I said above: "For now, try connecting via Ethernet directly to the modem to get whatever you need to do done."
