Idea centre 520 will not connect to the Internet

Hello, I am having problems with my idea centre 520 and would appreciate any help. lastweek the pc crashed and we had to reboot it. we have been away on holiday for a week and on returning the computer will no longer connect to the Internet, we get a message saying the computer has limited connectivity. I don't think it is a network issue as we can connect our iPad. 

has anyone anyideas.

Re: Idea centre 520 will not connect to the Internet

goto device manager and make sure all the drivers are fine

goto Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center and make sure your network is home (under active networks) if not click the blue writing then home

if not re-enter the pw for your wireless just incase

Hi Rob123456, welcome to the forum,

 

do you by any chance have Mcafee installed?  A friend of mine had a similar problem this morning as did the member who posted here; it seems an update from Mcafee may be causing a problem.

 

Edit; link to another post reporting similar.
