Not connecting to internet
« on: Sunday 29 August 21 10:03 BST (UK) »
One of my computers isn't connecting to the interenet.  I get a message saying -

Security or firewall is blocking your connection.

Anyone know what this means and how do I clear it.

Thanks

How do you connect WIFI; Landline; VPN or Hot Spot from your cell.

What version of Win and if Win10 have you been installing the upgrades.

What Antivirus are you using?

I would just do a reset.

Go to Settings then Network and Internet

Just above "Help from the Web" you will see in blue Network Reset; select this and reboot.

If that doesn't work then trying turning off then turning on your WIFI adapter.
