    Glad to hear you got it sorted, you can mark it solved by clicking "Mark solved" at the top of the page.
    OS: Windows 8

    Hi there, I have a problem with my internet access on my laptop. I installed a new usb modem and its bundled software and thereafter internet access on my laptop stopped working altogether. Wireless LAN, LAN and USB modem connected but no internet access and unidentified network on every connection. I uninstalled the bundled software for the modem that I installed with no prevail. I tried to do a system recovery and both restore points of my system restore fails to restore to point with errors. I am so disappointed with what I thought is finally a better product of Microsoft, but once again I am horribly disgusted with Windows and reinstalling the system should NEVER be the answer to fixing a small problem like this. This instance of Windows 8 unfortuneatly is preinstalled on a purchased Laptop and I decided to give it a chance and guess what I am unhappy with it. It worked find till then, and it didnt take long before Windows started giving me troubles. Linux never just stops working, it just works, its stable and THUMBS up to all the great development on XUbuntu. Loving the OS. All you software vendors wake up and develop for Linux (Get on the band wagon Adobe). Seriously I cant believe I cannot connect with eithet LAN, WLAN or USB Modem on my system. Its horribly broken and all I did was installed a usb modem.

    Sorry to offload on this site, but in response to the gentlemen who had to REINSTALL WINDOWS to fix his simple problem again demonstrates the reason why I moved to Linux in the first place. Hey sir try Linux it rocks. Your internet will always work and will never just stop working.

    If anyone knows what my problem could be, please could you respond. Thank you.
    Rather than reinstalling the Op system Windows 8 is set up to use the refresh or the reset features.

    Refresh Windows 8

    Reset Windows 8

    I'm not sure why you can't get online but if you can post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all I can have a look at it.

    Enter your BIOS settings on start and make sure fast boot is disabled, on ALL devices I've had this problem on that was the cure. Also make sure your LAN is turned on and all sub settings under LAN. Hope this helps ^^
