That shows

That the PC didn't get an address from the unknown router or such and use the self assigned IPs.

As it stands, it doesn't show where the problem is. Tell about your router, etc.

Then your options are:
1. Solve this issue also.
2. Download on your phone, tablet or any other PC and copy it to this one.
3. Reset Windows and try again.

It seems that your issues are with torrents and proxies. I don't think that's a "network problem". Until solved, don't use those.

Anyway, I couldn't guess that "solved with cache" means that you did a reset of Windows nor that "any other program" means "except from browser". The help you can get here is as good (at most) as your description of the problem.

If resetting Windows didn't help, go back to factory settings (or to your latest image backup) and all will be as fine as it was at that time. Then gradually go ahead again. It takes some time, but it's guaranteed to work if there are no hardware issues.

You didn't tell what that socket goes to.

Many of the sockets are in college rooms and because it's their network they disable torrents and proxies. No one may guess why these are blocked if you keep secrets.

I Know

I didn;t tell bcs i don't know where the socket goes to,i think to some kind of router,all of the cables go down to somekind of router or maybe in an room,i tried to follow but i can't see through wall.Yea they have disable torrents or any online games,but that is weird bcs if i want to download an program for school i can't download it from here.If i buy an router in my room i can set up it to download from torrents or online games?or it will be exactly the same thing.

You are in a hotel, college room or other.

Since it's not your Internet but as a service due to where you renting or something, well, that's enough for me.

If you buy a router and use that connection the same restriction should apply.

If you won't tell, I can't guess a workaround.

If you need to download a program for school and you can't do it at a school supported location, go and complain with the IT support desk.

If you can't do it where you're now and it's not supported by the school IT, take your laptop with you to any other place where you can use Internet to download it or download it to a smartphone (I suppose you have one, most students have) using the data connection on the phone and copy it from there to your PC or laptop.
