    Just ran the IPreset file, still same indications. I am going to talk to my landlord to see if I can get the router restarted.
    Just out of curiosity, are you able to open a command prompt and input the following and then press enter:

    Code:
    ping www.google.com
    After that can you then input the following and let it complete:

    Code:
    ping 173.194.34.177

    After completion can you upload the results here. It will help to rule out any potential DNS errors.

    I was able to ping both the ip address as well as Google . one weird thing I have noticed is I am unable to ping www . microsoft . com but any other website will work. Not sure what that means if anything :/ . also my landlord won't be in until tomorrow morning so won't be able to reset router until then.

    Microsoft blocks pings and is normal

    Are you able to run the following in an elevated command prompt and show the results:

    Code:
    netstat -a
    This will help us see if you are able to form a full TCP session and help us isolate it to an application issue or a potential issue with your NIC.

    If you are able to test connectivity on a separate network, maybe a friend or family's then this will further help out troubleshooting.

    All I see from this is one connection attempting to be made to 88.201.37.201. Further details - 88.201.37.201 IP Address Whois | DomainTools.com

    The connection isn't fully established and would align with your symptoms. Until the test on another network we won't be able to fully rule out if it is your machine or the associated router.

    For the time being can you test connectivity in safe mode with networking.

    To do so please follow this tutorial (OPTION ONE ONLY) - Safe Mode

       Note
    Please replace all references of Safe Mode with Safe Mode with Networking.

    Boot back into normal mode and then go through and follow the steps laid out in this tutorial. The likely cause of this could be malware or a third party application. Please be patient and once you have determined what application is causing the connection failure we can act accordingly.

    Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

    Chances are you won't need to test on a different network now.

    Starting in safe mode doesn't fix anything, it only proves that something that is starting with Windows is preventing the machine from accessing the internet. You had a valid IP so this was always the case.

    It didn't fix itself and it's very likely that the IPReset file you ran earlier is what fixed the problem.

    Multiple restarts probably had an effect after running the IPReset file and I've seen nothing else here that would explain why the problem just magically fixed itself. Normally you would need to remove the offending software that was blocking the connection but I never got that far.

    That IPReset file has fixed more machines than I can count. Feel free to mark as solved.
