    Hello, out of the blue my internet stopped showing on my computer but it still works on my phone and other devices. It will show other possible connections but not the one I have.

    I’ve tried resetting the modem and restarting my pc but neither worked. What should I do?

    How do you connect on your computer? I assume this is a windows machine so please do this:

    Go to Command Prompt by pressing the Windows Key and R, then type cmd in the run box and press enter.

    Next in command prompt, type ipconfig /all and press enter.

    Please notate the IPv4 address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS servers. Here is an example:


    If you are using an Ethernet connection, you should see a listing for Ethernet Adapter, Ethernet Connection.

    Perhaps your phone is not equipped to connect to the band that your internet serves on, try exploring to see what capabilities your router and PC have, the most common bands are 2.4ghz and 5ghz and you may find the setting to change bands to be in your router, not your modem.
