Cannot connect to the internet

Hi, my PC is randomly having trouble connecting to the internet. It is showing a yellow triangle over my web activity icon. I am getting an error that says "Windows could not automatically detect this networks proxy settings." Any idea on a solution for this? I'm posting on a laptop that is using the same internet connection.

You are not giving us a lot to work with. Did this happen after the Win 7 SP1 update? Have you changed anything?
