Hi. You're watching VisiHow, and this is a tutorial on how to disable or enable local area connection on Windows 7 computers.
Start off by accessing your control panel. To go there, we need to click on the 'Start Menu' button on the lower left corner of the screen.
Then, click 'Control Panel'.
Once the 'Control Panel' window opens, you need to click 'Network and Internet'.
From here, we need to click 'Network and Sharing Center'.
Now a new section will load, displaying our network type, connection type, and our computer.
There are several sub-sections on the left side of the window. We need to click 'Change adapter settings'.
The primary local area connection is now enabled on this computer.
To disable it, right click on the 'Local Area Connection', and click 'Disable'.
Once we've clicked 'Disable' it will turn grey, which means that it's no longer working.
To enable it, we need to right click it again, and click 'Enable'.
Wait for it to fully load. Once it's loaded, we'll have access to the internet again.
This concludes our tutorial on how to disable or enable Local Area Connection on Windows 7 computers. Thank you for watching VisiHow. If you have any other comments or questions, please leave them in the comments section below.
