    check you nic tcp/ip properties
    right click on connection left click properties
    highlight tcp/ip go to properties should show conection if a network setup should have manual setup of DNS WAN
    and IP address's
    otherwise should be dynamic
    go back to desktop
    click start run enter cmd
    type ping type in a ip address that you know
    on a network do search lots of places have guides for your router

    You didn't mention how you're connected (dial-up,cable,dsl) nor if other systems
    are attached, but there are four things needed for all tcp connections
    IP address,
    IP mask,
    DNS address.
    Gateway address​
    you can / should see all of these with the command
    ipconfig /all
    Normally allowing Get IP and DNS dynamically works well, just make sure any other
    configuration data is removed.
