Are you using virtual machine ware on this machine?

You should try removing the VM drivers with the yellow marks.
I used to use them but i don't anymore... Also they have no yellow marks... should i un-install the VM software

In that case, you mat try the bridged networks for VMs other than NAT , so that they will use the hosts settings.

Following my first post and deleting the VM's plus the subsequent reboots probably had something to do with.

Glad it's working now either way.

Hi,

I have the same problem. But in my case I don't have any virtual machine installed, I looked into the device manager and there is NO error or yellow marks.

Can you advise me what to do?
