Internet Connection Not Working After a System Restore? Fix Your Internet

You are here

Let's Fix the No-Internet Issue

So you recently did a system restore or computer restore to the desktop computer hardwired to your modem or router, and now you cannot connect to the Internet.

Your wired Internet connection is not working and you just keep getting the dreaded "Page can not be displayed" error. You were hoping to fix your wired computer to make it work better and now you have no Internet at all.

I can hear you thinking to yourself, "What did I do?" Don't stress or panic, we can fix this.

The first thing to try would to be to try to access a different web address. If the computer is older, the default home page may no longer be valid or no longer exist. You may just need to update your home page.

If that does not work, and you have double-checked that the network cable is connected securely at both ends, I have a feeling I know why this is happening.

So Why Can't I Connect to the Internet?

Most likely the driver file is missing for the network adapter inside your computer. Without that file, Windows is unable to talk to the hardware that you plug your Ethernet or network cable into.
