Internet not working after Windows Updates. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello! :-)
    I just bought myself a new computer, built it from scratch and installed a OS. No problems at this point.
    As I connect to the router and internet, I have no problems at all, surfing the internet with no problem at all. I install antivirus, drivers etc.
    And as usual there is the Windows Update, i have about 170 updates available, it downloads and install with no problems, it ask me reboot the system, and that's what i'll do. When i come back to my desktop, the wireless-internett symbol will tell me that i am connected to the internet. When I start my browser this is not the case. It starts to switch between having internet and not having internet, tells me that it is connected then it is not.

    I have tried to update drivers, system restore, re-install the computer, but with no luck.

    So my question is:

    My network is working before installing any updates from Windows Update, but not afterward. What can i do?

  • Instead of Microsoft optional driver update use drivers from support page

    http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z87-GD65-GAMING.html#download

    Perhaps the network driver is behind your troubles

  • Apparently you are referring to problems with your TP-Link wireless USB adapter.  If so, I suggest you ensure you have the driver and utility software installed published by TP-Link found @ http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/?model=tl-wdn3200#down

    If you're still having problems than you should contact TP-Link for assistance.  If there is a problem with the driver or the software TP-Link will have to provide an update to resolve the problem.

  • Apparently Windows Update made a mess in my network configs, I checked the Event Viewer, and in was telling me something about DNS errors, so i had to change both my DNS and IP-adress. I used Googles DNS servers (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4) and now it works with no problem at all.

    Thanks for putting my attention to the wireless adapter! :-)
