    So, I moved my PC a few days ago since the room it was in had some repairs scheduled for it. When it was in the other room, I had to use my phone as a WiFi Adapter for it since the ethernet cable couldn't reach.

    After the repairs were done I moved my PC back and plugged the ethernet cable back in. The thing is there is no internet connection coming through even though I'm already connected to the router.

    So now I'm using my phone again as a WiFi adapter. (The wifi is coming from the same router my ethernet cable is connected to.) Changing where the ethernet cable is plugged in also doesn't help.

    I'm on Windows 10 Pro

    as a starter run the network troubleshooter
    To run the Network troubleshooter
    1. Select the Start button > Settings > Network & Internet > Status.
    2. Under Change your network settings, select Network troubleshooter.
    3. Follow the steps in the troubleshooter, and see if that fixes the problem.
