Unhappy Solved: Can ping but no internet...
Hi,

I have a Dell inspiron 6000 that has been able to get on the internet just fine... until today, that is. I have no idea as to why it has suddenly decided to hate me.

-It connects to the wireless router just fine "Excellent"
-All the other laptops my family has can get on just fine
-It can ping any website
-It has two IP numbers for DNS (if that means anything...I'm told that's a good thing)
-I've run winsock reset & IP/TP (if thats what its called) through command prompt and it didn't do anything
-I've done ipconfig /release and renew and it didn't do anything

I've read through other people's threads on similar issues and none of it makes any sense to me. I would appreciate any help you could give. Thanks!!

did you get any errors reported when you carried this out
What version of windows do you have
a few things below to post
ipconfig /all
pings
xirrus

if you can ping websites, but not load in browsers - check
do you have a firewall at all,
what firewall are you using
try disabling the firewall

------------------------------------------------------------------------
{ipconfig /all}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here
We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results here
-> Start
-> (XP - enter the following in the RUN box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all
-> (Vista or Windows 7 - enter the following in the Search box)
cmd /k ipconfig /all

A black box will appear on the screen -
rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy

then reply here and
control key + V to paste
------------------------------------------------------------------------
{Ping Tests}
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

Start> Run {search bar in Vista}> CMD to open a DOS window and type:

Type the following command
Ping google.com
Post back the results
rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

Type the following command
Ping {plus the number thats shown against the default gateway shown in above ipconfig /all}
Post back the results
rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste

Type the following command
Ping 209.183.226.152
post back results
rightclick in the box
select all
enter
control key + C key - to copy
then reply here and
control key + V to paste
------------------------------------------------------------------------
{run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector} Download and install
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php
Then run the program
if you get an error - You need NET Framework installed for the WiFi Inspector to function.

post a screen shot of the program running - if there are a lot of networks showing can you click on "networks" top lefthand area - so we can see all the network information, and also post which network "Adapter Name" (1st column) is yours on the list

To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file.
To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

If you can ping a web site you have internet access. If you can ping a web site by name DNS is working. Can you ping yahoo.com?

What operating system and service pack level?

As for the other thing you asked me to do, the wifi inspector, I can't get on the internet at all on this computer and I don't have any externals or flash drives, so I don't really think I can do it.

Maybe just a stack or browser issue. If the following repairs do not get you running again please tell us what browser(s) you are using.

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

I also just tried turning off the firewall and it didn't help, either.

In IE: Tools - Internet Options - Connections tab - LAN Settings... - there should be nothing selected there.

If you're still not working try an IE Reset.

Nope, there's nothing selected under LAN Settings. Tried an ie reset, and its still not working.

In addition, I forgot to mention this, but if it means anything, I can't get Itunes to connect to the internet, either...

What non-Windows firewall, security suite or other security programs do, or did, you have on the machine?

There's Symantec on it, but that's it, other than the normal windows stuff.

I suggest the Norton Removal Tool, then a stack reset.
