Hi there! My name is*****'m sorry that you're having this problem. It would be my pleasure to assist you. There are a number of things can cause this issue. If you have updated your Windows operating system to the latest version, you probably also need to update the drivers for the individual system components, including the networking components. That alone may resolve the issue. If that doesn't resolve the issue, it will get a bit more complex, but I am confident that we can resolve it.

I'll need the following information in order to best help you:

1) Brand and Model of Computer

2) Current Operating System on Computer - Note: If you're not sure, please click this link and tell me what you see:

3) How is the computer connected to the network? By ethernet cable or wirelessly?
