Perhaps it is just a coincidence but one client was not able to connect to the internet. Shutting down their computer and modem didn't fix the problem, but then later selecting Restart fixed the issue they'd had for a few days. Perhaps it was this problem which Microsoft appears to have caused with an update. If you're having troubles connecting to the internet keep this issue in mind.
