Port 445 is needed for Microsoft File and Printer sharing.
So you have to open that port for your local area network to share files and printers.

ports, by themselves, have nothing to do with dropping internet service. This is isp/modem/router/cabling/nic/configuration issues.

Post the results of an ipconfig /all for review
