I'm sorry to hear that.

 

Can you be a little more specific?

Do you have other computers/devices that can connect?

What happens when you try to connect this computer?

How are you connecting, wired or wireless?

Sounds like your firewall could be blocking the connection. You should be able to switch it on in your network connections.
