    Cable connection stopped working

    I have had some troubles with my connection, only the wireless connection works suddenly, i didnt have any troubles earlier today but just now when i restarted my computer (Laptop / Notebook) it dosent work, i only get connected to the local network but i dont get any access to internet, but when i turn on the wireless function it works fine... this happened one time before when windows automatically updated and then i had to format and install windows again and it worked fine until now, when i go to windows update log i dont see any update today at all... i did update windows defender and then i restarted and cable connection didnt work, i restored the windows system to the point before i updated windows defender but it still dosent work...

    anyone have had these kind of problems and solved em or anyone knows what to do ?

    Welcome
    Lets start with the driver. Go to search by the start button. Type in device manager. Do you see any small yellow warning signs. Are the drivers up to date?

    Right click the small internet icon in the notification bar (by the small clock) and right click and then troubleshoot.
