    Internet connectivity issues in windows 8.1


    There is some internet connectivity problems in my laptop. I am using the connection of one cable internet providers in Ontario named Acanac-Inc Toronto. My Os version is windows 8.1 64 bit. Now get in to the issue. The internet status is showing connected and also showing internet access. But when we browse it shows connection time out. I tried different troubleshooting methods. But nothing works. Can somebody give a solution for this? Thank you

    Which "troubleshooting" methods are you referring to?

    Sounds to me like you need to reset your router and modem. If you don't have a router, check your IPconfig and make sure you are being assigned valid DNS and IP addresses.
