Hi everyone!

My friend's specs:
Ryzen 1500x
16gb ram
Radeon Sapphire RX 570

My friend is having trouble with his pc, as it isn't detecting his internet all of a sudden. It can still detected other networks (his mobile hotspot and neighbors wifi), but cannot find his regular wifi. We've attempted to try using an Ethernet cable but it came up with "unrecognised, no internet". He also attempted to purchase another wifi USB adapter but no luck. A friend of ours attempted to help by telling us to go to Command Prompt and inputting 'ipconfig/flulshdns' but still no luck . We also attempted to set a DNS up? By going to Control Panel> Network and Internet> Network Connections> 'network adapater's name'> right clicking 'properties'> then changing the properties within 'Internet Protocal Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)', but no luck as well.

All help is welcomed!!

Thanks!

Next include the make and model of your wireless router. Can you connect off of your router with your phones and perhaps a donor system(laptop)? If so, make sure your router's firmware is up to date.

Apparently Telstra updates their firmware automatically, I tried to see if I could do it manually but couldnt find it. https://www.telstra.com.au/support/category/broadband/security/what-is-telstra-network-security
