    open control panel
    open network and sharing center
    on the left click change adapter settings
    there should be at least 2 adapters
    one is Ethernet the other is wifi
    right click on the Ethernet adapter
    select properties
    look for the Internet Protocol tcp/ip4
    Attachment 33036
    highlight it and then select properties on the right

    Attachment 33037
    in the top section instead of obtain automatically select the other one
    set your ip address to something like 192.168.1.10
    subnet mask is usually 255.255.255.0
    gateway ip address usually its 192.168.1.1
    click ok
    ok again
    then close network and sharing center
    then reboot pc
    then see if itll connect
    if not unplug your router for a few seconds then plug it back in and give it a few minutes to cycle
    then try again
    networks are finicky beasts

    but if you are on a homegroup network the above will lose the homegroup connection
    Now it's saying "The default gateway is not available."

    I don't have wifi on my Mobo, so I don't have a wifi adapter. Also, it did not work.

    I used my wired connection on my laptop, and it's doing the same thing as on my desktop. So it's my router/modem (I have a combination) doing the deed.

    Hi,
    Go to settings, Network & Internet, click Advanced Options, select ON with radio button for Private network in Find Devices & Content.
