Question about Computers & Internet
This is almost certainly a Domain Name Server (DNS) problem. Typically when you surf the internet you type in the URL of a website and the DNS assigned to handle your computer's queries translates that name into an IP address. These IP addresses are usually obtained from the closest relevant Router Gateway, which in most cases is provided and maintained by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Try opening a simple command prompt (assuming you're using Windows) by opening the Start menu and typing "cmd" into the search field at the bottom of the menu, then pressing "Enter."
Once you have the command prompt open, simply type the following: "ping 127.0.0.1" and wait while your Network Interface Card (NIC) or Wireless NIC performs the standard loop-back test to see if your networking hardware is functioning correctly. If it is working correctly, you should get four consecutive "replies" printed out in your command prompt window. If the loop-back test fails, try opening another command prompt, but this time right-click on the search result and "Run As Administrator." Then run the command "sfc /scannow," which will check your TCP/IP stack (part of Windows) and attempt to repair whatever part is damaged.
If the problem persists, check your drivers by right-clicking on "My Computer" or "This PC" and then left-clicking "Manage." A window will open with a variety of administrator tools on the left-hand side--click on "Device Manager" and see if there is a problem with your NIC/WNIC's driver(s). At this point you can try to let Windows automatically search for a driver to fix your connectivity issues by right-clicking on the yellow exclamation point and selecting "Update Driver."
I've attached a few screenshots to help guide you through the processes detailed above. If all else fails you can attempt to manually enter the DNS IP addresses provided free of charge by Google, which are "188.8.131.52" and "184.108.40.206," respectively.
