Your post didn't describe the network connections. Just to head off one post, an invalid setup I've seen a few times is to connect the DSL modem to a "HUB" and the machines to the HUB.

This doesn't work.

Tell about your network.

Looks like you don't have a network.

Review sites like and specifically a DSL/Cable Router.

In closing, be more wordy with your posts. With what's written, I can't see if it should work.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
