Hello,

1) Make sure that IP address and DNS server was set to obtain the address

automatically .

Click on start --> run --> type ncpa.cpl and click on OK.

Right click on your LAN icon if you are using wired network or right click on your

wireless network icon ---> Select "Properties" ---> scroll down and double

click on "Internet Protocol[TCP/IP]" . Make sure that

"Obtain IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically"

options are selected.

2) Click on Start --> Run --> type cmd and click on OK. Type this command.

ipconfig /all and press enter.

Make sure that IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS Servers

are having addresses.

3) Check your firewall.
