The best and easiest thing to do would be to backup all of your data, such as pictures and documents and reformat computer to factory state. This will reinstall all appropriate drivers and updates whilst eliminating all software related issues. You can also take it to reputable repair company and ask them to give you a quote for a repair. If it's not hardware related, should be fairly easy to repair.

Hey Joanna,

Try following the steps here Change TCP/IP Settings incase you made changes that messed up your Network Adapter configuration. Also typically you're fine leaving the DNS part to automatic but you can always try changing them to use Google's DNS which are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

Good luck!
