    Recently updated windows yesterday and now I can only connect to google, Facebook and YouTube with my Ethernet connection. My WiFi won’t connect at all. Tried some stuff already and I’m trying to work out if it’s a problem on my end or the uni. All other devices I have connect fine

    If you still have the CD that came with the laptop, look to see if it has network drivers on it and install those again.

    Go to Settings > Network & Internet > Ethernet > Change Adapter Options. Right click on Ethernet > Properties. Type in 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for DNS server. See if that make internet work.

    To confirm, you have tried forgetting the network and reconnecting?
    What version of Windows are you using?
