My question is rather simple but I have not been able to figure it out. My computer is running a fresh install of Windows 8. My wireless N network card driver is installed and I am able to connect to the internet just fine. When I open Internet Explorer I can browse the internet with ease. Speed Tests show I have a download speed of 11mbps and upload of 2.5mbps. Streaming works fine as well. If I try and download ANYTHING, it always fails. This includes Windows Updates, Google Chrome, the Steam application, NVIDIA updates, the Windows App Store, security updates, other drivers, mp3s and the list goes on. What seems to be the issue here? I have checked and my network card is Windows 8 compatible. I am at a loss. Any ideas what is going on?
FYI, virus program has even been uninstalled when I did the full windows 8 reinstall...I am logged into a Windows Live account as the admin, I have tried disabling the Windows Firewall AND the Defender and still nothing! Very frustrating.
