Guest account Internet access not working.

I have access to the Internet when I am on the admin account and I use to have access on the guest account as well. Today for some reason I start my computer up and the guest account no longer has Internet access. (using IE) Why could this be? Why would it happen out of no where? How do I fix it? I use chrome on my admin account and it works fine.

With this limited information it's difficult to guess at what the problem might be but I would start by resetting the router.

It helps to have a router configuration file to get all the routers settings back to where they were, otherwise you would have to do it manually.
