    I have wired when I do a network diagnostic both the network and the internet connection have problems. Microsoft worked on the computer and only said he fixed problems with connection with internet provider. but when I do the troubleshooting both connection have problems when I get on a web site. the internet will say the address is right but cannot connect, both dell and Microsoft. If there is anything else you want to know just let me know. thank you
