Wpn824 v2 won't connect to internet via ethernet
It may be borked, especially if you've had a power surge or outage.
You may wish to call your internet service provider and request that they send a "Reset" signal to your Modem. It may even be offered through their automated menu before you reach a real person.
Failing that, try the following steps:
1. Unplug/power to ALL OF THE COMPONENTS - modem, router, and computer. Wait 20 seconds, then restore the power cord to the modem. Wait 1 minute until the modem fully boots and settles down. Next, restore the power cord to the router and wait at least 30 seconds for it to fully boot and settle down. Next, restore power to the computer and wait for it to fully boot up and settle down. Now, see if you have internet access. If not, go to Step 2.
2. Right-click on the network icon in the system tray and select "Troubleshoot problems". Wait while the Windows troubleshooter tries to identify and fix the problem. Now, see if you have internet. If not, go to Step 3.
3. Go to Control Panel/Device Manager. Under Network adapters, select the network adapter you're using and choose Uninstall. Click Yes/Apply/OK as appropriate. Restart the computer and wait while Windows re-installs the drivers for your adapter. Now, see if you have internet.
4. Try a different router.
