I think I know what the problem might be, although I'm not really sure how to fix it. My modem is connected to my computer with a USB cable. When I unplug the USB, my I lose my internet connection, and my Local Area Connection totally disappears from the Network Connections Window. I do have ethernet cables going from my router to my modem (Arris Touchstone Telephony Modem) and my modem to my computer, though. I think I need to transfer the internet connection from the USB to the ethernet, but not sure how. I tried resetting the modem, but that didn't work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
