Installing Windows 8.1 makes me go crazy.
I cannot access Internet after updating to Windows 8.1. I have tried IE, Firefox, Chrome and even Safari, but it stays the same. I also uninstalled then re-installed the latest version of them all and got all the driver updates from Microsoft and so on installed. Can anybody help me? Thank so much.

Did you try this method:
  • Press Windows key + X +A to run cmd as an administrator
  • Type "netsh winsock reset", and then press enter
  • Reboot your computer and try to reconnect the Internet

Hope this helps you to resolve the internet connection issue.
