    Hello to everyone, i got this problem one day ago, and i spended some time searching for fix but nothing seems to work for me.
    So i live curenlty in my campus, and I used internet normaly till this moment.
    I my room there is port to connect my laptop with internet (trough UTP cable).
    And i connected, like everyday, to that port with my computer, and suddenly it showed me no internet.

    So i decided to take router, and connect it to that port. Then i connected my laptop to that router. Now i have internet. Also if i enable wifi from that router i can have working connection.
    So to understand me right it is like this:

    Port(in the wall in my room)-Router-cable/wifi to my laptop >>working
    Port(in the wall in my room)-Cable to my laptop >>not working (worked before)

    This doesnt happen only in my room here in campus it happens to me in all rooms, also it happens in library. The thing is i cant carry that router all the time with me so i need to fix this to work troughout my day properly.

    Also to connect to campus internet i need to use proxy, which is all set up like before but ethernet doesnt work.
    I hope you all can understand what is the problem.

    I have Windows 10 Edu x64.

    This is how it looks on working WIFI connection with same provider:

    Thank you all for reading my topic, what are your solutions?

    Check with campus IT to see if Wins Proxy needs to be set up. ( I am not familiar with proxy settings )

    Try the cheapest thing first. Swap cable with a friend and see it works when directly connected to the wall.
