    My computer was working perfectly fine until it wouldn't let me log into any websites all of a sudden.

    I believe I have isolated the issue, but I'm stumped.

    I tried multiple browsers, and I can't log onto anything on any browser (Amazon, Facebook, Yahoo, etc.). I can navigate through pages, but once I go to enter login credentials, I get an error code (Chrome) of "ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED".

    Chrome suggests checking any firewalls. All I have is Windows Denfender, the default. Nothing else. I tried deactivating all firewalls, but that didn't work.

    The issue is wireless network specific, because when I plugged in an ethernet cable, I was able to log in as usual.

    I believe somehow, my computer doesn't trust my wireless network and is blocking it from sending/receiving data. Any ideas?

    You can try resetting one of the browsers back to defaults OR try removing and forgetting the wireless network and reconnecting to the wireless network to reset any network settings.
