Check internet connection
The name Err Internet Disconnected says that the computer is disconnected from the Internet and it could be 1 of many things like recurring internet outages. First of all, you need to check the status of the network connection of your computer and router.
- We check the connection icon, and if it has disappeared, we recall that this is how the active connection looks and so disconnected
- Check the wires themselves, their integrity, pull out and insert them back into the socket.
- If there are other computers, tablets, see if there is a connection to them.
- If we have a router (router), we examine whether everything is in order with it and whether those bulbs that were burning before are on (the problem may be on the provider’s side)
- Turn off the power to the router, wait 5 minutes and turn it back on. If there is no power button, you can unplug the power cord from it or pull it out.
After switching on, wait another 3-4 minutes to initialize the equipment and then check the connection.
If nothing helped, then go ahead.

What can be done?
