Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.

Do you have any other devices connected to the internet? What internet provider do you use?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Netscape--just a wireless printer
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

Netscape is normally just a browser, what company do you pay for internet service. Is that Netscape as well?

Dish network

Ok did they give you something that looks like a box with blinking lights for internet? Usually either a modem or router.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Router
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

Ok please unplug it from the outlet and wait 70 seconds. After that plug it back in but do not test it yet. Instead if any Ethernet cables (bigger phone cable) are connect disconnect and reconnect both end of them. Wait about 10 minutes after that for the router to cycle and then test your computer.

Great help, but I fixed the problem myself
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 2 years ago.

How did you fix it yourself? Did you not use anything I just sent you? Meaning you did not unplug or restart your router at all?
