    go to tools, internet options, connections tab then lan settings set that to auto. If that doesn't work make sure you anivirus or other firewall software isn't the issue goodluck and merr x-mas :toast:

    dual boot shoudn't matter, did you already unplug your router and wait a bit then plug it back in? If so what kind of antivirus software are you running?

    Yeah, reboot router. Then shut off all other things connected to the network.

    EDIT: Reboot computer if you havent done that
