You problem is very simple it is a internet protocol configuration that is causing this conflit.

Go to your Network connection status :

Select Properties - Internet Protocol ( TCP /IP )

Make sure that your configuration is set in a way that you computer obtains IP automatically.

It should work.

Also it may be a cable problem or an external problem ..
Hi thanks for the advice but they were all already showing tick on what about this business of updating the driver what does that do or can it be risky?
