Cant connect through ethernet or WIFI

I hope some can help me? I have bought new ethernet cables, two different wifi boosters with ethernet connections, various wifi adapters (All of which work with windows) but still can not connect. I am fairly new to mining and I was using Multiminer but thanks to windows defender (which loves to switch itself back on at night and uninstall mining software) Im using cudominer atm but im not a fan. Really want to try hive but cant seem to get it working. please help. thanks guys. I know my rig is small 2 x 4GB RX 470 but just starting. lol
