Welcome to Seven Forums Terryl!
There are no stupid questions here! I'm wondering if you might be having a problem with your driver.
If you open the start menu by clicking the
button and type "device manager" without the quotation marks then press enter, the Device Manager window should open and a list of object categories should be displayed in a list. Look through the list to be sure none have red X's or Yellow Triangles over their icon. It would likely be under the heading Network Adapters. Please include in your reply anything marked with one of these symbols.
Do you have a Petty good idea of when it started occurring (the most recent time, NOT before the restore point you used)?
You also say that :
I am able to connect to pretty much any website when I open my browser.
Can you clarify the Pretty much part? Does it seem to be working like normal or is there a definite change where it intermittently does not connect "More Than Usual?"
