To diagnose what could be the root cause of the issue , we could try these steps:
1.Open security center
2.Select Internet & Network, then click Configure on the right.
3.In the section titled Firewall protection is enabled, click Advanced.
4.Select Program Permissions from the Home list on the left.
5.Check whether internet explorer is given full access under the program permission list, if not allow it
And then try to go online.
If the above dint work, try to click on restore firewall defaults and close mcafee complelety and then try to access internet
Thanks, i'm going to have to try this when i get in from Uni. I'm using firefox at the moment so i'll check if it's allowed. The thing is, it's hard to tell whether my laptop is picking up the network cable as some of the time it says no access, sometimes it says access without internet. It's very confusing with my lack of computer knowledge.
I had this problem last week,
remove McAfee and install a new antivirus.
