Hello mimi050813

A laptop connected to a Local Area Network or LAN doesn't necessarily mean that it would have Internet access too.

Even though for Windows 8, you can check this tutorial and see if this helps. If it doesn't, you may need to provide more details such as what type of Internet connection you are using, do you have a router (wireless or wired) that is used to distribute the Internet connection or there is a direct cable from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) connected to your PC, etc.

With more details, we will be able to assist you more accurately. :)
