    Hi there, I have a problem with my ethernet cable and probably my PC and I've tried most online solutions so this is sort of a last resort.

    I'll try to describe it to the best of my ability:
    I want to play the Master Chief Collection that has just come out, since then I have been browsing the internet and playing games without any sort of problems except the occasional packet loss. Upon looking at my network + internet section in the settings I get these types of messages from my PC.
    Basically I have internet and can browse but my PC says otherwise, which disables any microsoft enabled app like Cortana and their Game Store, which says I have a connection problem. My PC stats are this if it helps:

    Sorry, forgot to list this as completed.
    I managed to fix the problem by reinstalling windows fresh, as I believe the problem was a user file that was corrupted.
