Default Re: Can't get Connection

You really need to post more info than that, Chala. Is the connection wireless or usb or ethernet? Is the problem the same with all connection methods? Are there any other pcs on the router and do they have the same problem? Have you tried another pc and does it have the same problem? Does the laptop have the same problem with another router?

It is possible to restrict internet access by time both in windows and certain routers. This would normally only be done in commercial setups but is your friend's laptop a works one that the company IT dept has restricted in this way for some reason.
