Try restarting your router by unplugging it from mains then plugging it back in.
Wait until the router is showing ready to use (no lights flashing).
Restart Windows.

I'm curious why you did all that before you installed SP3? Did you download SP3 from the following?

yes i did download the SP3 from Microsoft's web

www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=25129

I did all these updates to see if it ain't one of them that causes the problem.

I noticed it was SP3 when restoring my system before upgraded to SP3

with SP3 install only place I can connect to is the router and LAN but not to internet
