well it connects, just not loading sites unless I'm using a hotspot. I'm not sure what the difference would be in why this works.

do you mean the USB adapter itself? I was thinking of testing out a new adapter and seeing if it works...
Yes the actual USB adaptor, because it's not working on both Windows and Linux. Testing a new one would help confirm if this is true or not.

Well, I'm at a loss. I've tested out a new adapter and it's doing the same thing. For a while I can browse and then everything just stops working again. Guess I'll just return the adapter. :-/

Is it possible that I'm able to use a mobile hotspot because of the different IP address or is it something else?

I've never experienced an issue like this that is so confusing that it seems unsolvable.

Have you tried running any system file integrity scan's such as the sfc /scannow command which should be run in an elevated command prompt.

If you can post the ipconfig/all from this machine when trying to connect to the landlords router it may be helpful...

I've been using a guide on Mozilla trying to diagnose different parts of the network. One is to try and ping Google DNS servers. I can't even do that...

Tracert is different then pinging the IP. I get the following with Tracert and ping to Google's DNS.

How to use the Tracert command-line utility to troubleshoot TCP/IP problems in Windows

In this case I believe the Comcast modem/router is the problem, they are notorious for creating problems like this. With your connection working on the hotspot this is about the only conclusion I can come to.

No way for me to effect any type of fix on these Comcast devices but that is the problem here.

Well, in the 3 years that I've lived here this has never happened. Is it possible I was maybe blocked from accessing the router or internet somehow?

That is what's confusing me because from the ipconfig/all you are showing a valid IP so therefore should be connected to the internet so I don't see how you could be blocked from the router although it appears as if something is blocking the connection from working.

The DNS is showing kind of strange here, did you enter these DNS IP's "in bold" into the IPv4 properties?

Have you tried changing the DNS to something else like Google's DNS at 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Also try running the IPReset file, just unzip, windows may grip but it's safe, this file will reset the network stack, flush the DNS, renew the IP etc.

yes, the DNS servers were always there from what I remember. It's automatic so I don't put them there. I did try using Google's DNS servers but it's not working still.

I did run some network diagnostics and came up with some info that may be helpful. Even though it says to reboot the modem, that's already been done but willing to try again.

The first pic below is BEFORE I ran that IPresetALL file you submitted.



After I ran the file, I got these two messages...





I gathered some detailed info from the report below.

3. Turn the modem on or plug it back into the power outlet. To restart a modem that has a built-in battery, press and quickly release the Reset button. If this doesn't fix the problem, contact your Internet service provider.
