    Fixing Local Area Connection

    In my household, my computer is the one that is connected to the router. Just recently, my internet on all off my family members computers is fine, but mine is not working. There is a message that keeps saying there is a problem with my Local Area Connection, but I have no idea what to do. I can't connect to the internet at all, my Firefox keeps getting errors that says server is not found. I'm not sure how to resolve this and whether this is also a conflict with a firewall.

    You shouldn't have any issues with a firewall if it has been installed the whole time you've used LAN connection. I say disconnect the router and reconnect to it and recreate your internet log in. Best of luck!

    Try the easiest fixes first, if you have a spare Cat5 (Ethernet) cable then swap it to see if the cable is the issue.
