2]Delete DNS and reset TCP / IP
Sometimes websites aren’t resolved because your computer’s DNS still remembers your old IP. So make sure you remove DNS and reset TCP / IP.
3]Delete the WLAN profiles
If you can’t connect to the Internet from anywhere on your computer and use WiFi, we recommend deleting all WLAN profiles. Those previously connected networks may have been damaged and may not connect properly or disconnect from that network. It’s best to delete all WLAN profiles and start over.
