I have an WiFi router that has 2.4GHertz and 5GHertz.
I have two Windows 7 Pro desktops.
Both have the same problem.
Both are now connected only by WiFi.
Last week they were connected by direct cable connection to the internet
and still are wired but there is no internet access through the cable.
That is, when I click the bars icon it used to show both the hardwired
and the wifi connection as connected.
Now I only see the wifi connection at the bars icon. I have internet
connection through wifi.
I am having trouble getting movies from one pc to the other because the
wifi is too slow.
The only thing I have done was to install windows updates.
Please give me simple steps to fix this and bring back the direct
connection by cable.
How can I test to see if the cable is actually providing an internet or
LAN access. Maybe the hardwire port at the wifi router is bad ???
