Reasons for Network Issues
There are basically four reasons that may lead to network issues: the adapter problem, having no network access, network log in failure and network discovery not working. The first issue is the common problem of no network access. The adapter problem is a problem that constantly occurs and is an issue that can easily be resolved. The next and more common problem is no network access. There are three reasons that could cause this error: the TCP/IP needs to be reset, Windows has a trouble shooting problem or the drive does not work. The third and the most common problem is when the network log-in failure takes place. This may be caused by a simple problem. The final issue is when the network discovery is not working.
How to Solve
The adapter problem can easily be solved by purchasing a new one from the market. After the adapter is purchased, it needs to be reset in the system for it to work properly. This is a step that may take a little extra time by disabling the old adapter and enabling the new one. When there is no network found, the first check that needs to be done is the manual one. Check if the router is working and enabled, and if the drive is working. If all this is fine, reset the TCP/IP format. This is a slightly complex process: the operator needs to change TCP/IP manually for the error to be solved.
Certain checks can solve the network log in failure; the first is to ensure that the right log in name and password is being used. Each network has a different log in name and password; only by giving the right password can one use the service. The other issue could be network not being enabled which can be solved by enabling the system. If both were not the cause it would be a hardware issue that an expert will have to resolve. Network not working is a problem that is much more common. This can be solved by going through the 'Control panel' and clicking on the 'Search' box. After that click 'Network' and sharing center option; finally open and change the settings.
