    I'm visiting my friend at her apartment and her internet only works through an ethernet cable. I unplugged the cable from her computer and plugged it into mine and it worked perfectly but when we switched it back to her computer her internet takes forever to identify and ends with local only connection how do we fix her computer?

    What is wrong with her computer?

    If she has a modem (only) you almost always have to power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds) it when switching the device connected to it. Did you do that when switching back to her computer?
