Ethernet says connected but I don't have internet access

Go to Control Panel>Network and internet>Network and sharing center>Change adapter settings(its on the side)

The right click on your adapter (so probably ethernet) then properties, then Internet protocol version 4.

 

On the popup window click Use the following ip adress, then also use the followind dns server

Enter an ip adress just pick somthing that would not be already taken, for example if devices have ips of 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.12 the pick something like 192.168.1.20

 

Netmask should probably be 255.255.255.0

 

Gateway should be your router

 

And dns can be 1.1.1.1 and/or 8.8.8.8

 

after that click apply, and it should work

In my tray it has the ethernet connected icon and when I hover over it says "internet access"
This problem happened out of nowhere. I recently rebuilt this computer and the ethernet had been working perfectly fine since until last night.
I was setting up port forwarding for another minecraft server (I already had one set up and fully functional with no network problems) and all of a sudden everything stops loading.
I'm using an airi network extender from frontier and it's always worked fine. Anything I connect to it works fine except ethernet to my pc. I'm using a wifi adapter with it on my pc and it's working fine. I've tried restarting my router and pc multiple times, reinstalling my lan drivers, and flushing my dns as well as setting my dns to 8.8.8.8 but nothing's working : /

This is normal behavior, Internet Access means that Windows is able to get a response from http://www.msftncsi.com/ncsi.txt. Otherwise, it will display No Internet Access. What exactly is occurring when you attempt to visit a website?

Try resetting all network settings with Network reset in Network Status (Win+R, enter ms-settings:network in Run).

Unfortunate. Well, generally a site taking too long to respond is caused by a DNS failure. Have you tried attempting to access sites in browsers other than Chrome?

Try a traceroute to get a better view of what is going on.  Within a command prompt in Windows:

 


tracert 8.8.8.8

 

(or traceroute 8.8.8.8 under Linux).

 

See if it can at least reach the default gateway/router on your network.

yes it seems to be able to reach the gateway but the rest of the requests time out

Im guessing that either DHCP wasnt working on your router, or somone else had the same ip as you.

Im glad it worked!
