Issues with the internet
Perhaps only one computer or device is not connected but the other internet connected items are fine?
Computers, Notebooks (laptops), Televisions with Netflix, X-Box. Playstation and more are all internet connected items, testing any of these will prove if the internet is working on other items other than the device you are using.
Please check: Wireless (WiFi) network connection, is the wireless switch set on.
Wired or Wireless

Wireless, check security key
If you have a new modem or router with the wireless (WiFi) feature included, most likely solution will be to connect using the newly supplied security key it came with.
Has anyone changed the Wireless security key recently? Best to ask the other internet users using the same connection.
Check public internet websites to confirm things are working normally again.
Wireless checks done, still no internet action
So we have restarted the modem, found and confirmed the wireless key is correct and you still cannot connect... Thats not helpful
I think you will need some technical support to resolve this issue.
To-do: Confirm that the ethernet cable is securely seated in the computer ethernet port and the modem or router.
Perhaps you have structured cabling in your building, twice the checks as two cables are used, one cable for computer to wall socket, and the second from patch-panel to modem or router.
Internet issues lately?
If you are unsure that recent connectivity issues are caused by devices not working or the actual internet service itself, I have provided a page dedicated to contacting your internet service provider (ISP) >> Click here
Within this link is all the social media connections each provider communicates regularly, things like internet outages and specials are often used to engage customers.
Please restart your modem or router now
How-to: Power off the internet modem or router by removing the mains power for 5 seconds, re-apply the mains power and wait two minutes.
Notes: Internet modems or routers less performance than most mobile phones today. As they are powered on for long periods of time, occationally these units overheat and more often when gaming, videos on demand and downloads are actioned.
I recommend most modems or routers be restarted once a month and if you are still having issues after this routine I would suggest getting a modem or router replacement sooner than later.
