Expert:  Robert M. replied 2 years ago.
a couple of things that you can try.
A. if it worked recently you can do a system restore to a time when it did work
instructions below
B. check for an error with the wan miniport driver.
go to control panel / system / device manager
look for anything in the entire list with a red ! or a yellow ? on it.
for every one that you find
highlight it and press del on your keyboard. if it asks you want to uninstall it not disable
reboot your computer.
it should reinstall itself. hopefully properly
if they come up that way again
you need to go to the manufacturers website find your computer model and download any updated drivers or bios upgrades and install them
System restore instructions - windows 7 or 8 8.1
hold the windows logo key down and hit R
type rstrui.exe in the run box that comes up and hit enter
select restore to an earlier date.
Under the "suggested restore" which is usually not old enough to help is a link for "OTHER RESTORE POINTS"
click that if the suggested ones are not BEFORE THE PROBLEM STARTED
choose a date that is BEFORE you experienced the problem
hit ok / restore
the computer will start to shut down
a restoring settngs box will appear with a status bar
when it finishes your computer will restart with the same settings it had on the date you restored to. your data will not be affected.
It is not perfect. But it fixes a lot of things.
