Hello,

We had a storm earlier this week and every since then I have not been able to get on the Internet. Thought it was the router, but we reset in and my wife's laptop is working fine now, but I still can't get on the internet.

The computer shows that my wireless connection is excellent, but I canâ??t connect to the Internet. I continue to get the following error: â??Cannot find server or DNS Errorâ??.

I can't even connect by using my Ethernet cable. I have no idea how to fix this or even where to start. Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated. I ran the following just in case report for your review in the hopes that it will shed some light on whatâ??s going on with my computer.

Thank you very much for your help.
