are you using a wired or a wireless cxn?

but regardless, i would suggest you disable IPv6 on the computer..right click your local/wireless network connection then go to properties and uncheck IPv6..just IPv6 and after that, restart the computer.

also, for proxy settings on the browser, if your connection if not running through a network, well a complicated one---like a company or an office network, just leave everything blank..

also, try checking the security software on the computer and make sure the firewall's security settings is not set too high...

hope these help..

If you're really connected to the internet then your problem is firewall or browser related. Why do you say that you are connected to the internet? What firewall are you using? Please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

The ipconfig /all confirms that you apparently have a good connection. Have you dealt with forestpbear's advice?

Since you have an apparent good connection I'd deal with the proxy and firewall issues first. It's not likely that ipv6 is causing your problem, but can't be completely ruled out.

I'm experiencing the exact same problem for the last couple of weeks. I'm conencted to the internet through sky and all sites work fine but I bought a new tom tom and when I tried to set it up it kept saying no internet connection found. ]

now today I'm trying to play something in real player through a link and it won work, gone into preferences and clicked test connection and again it says no internet connection.

I've spoken to sky who say its nothing to do with them and I've disabled my firewalls on Norton but still I cant get the internet connection to pick up on real player or my tom tom.

What can I do?
Your help is greatly appreciated. I have a Vista laptop

Hi lolyp, darrer,

As i understand that u r having a good connection, however u are unable to browse with your browser.

To understand ur issue better may i know the following
1. what norton product are u using ..norton antivirus/internet security/ 360 ?
2. what version ?
3. if u use outlook express or MS outlook as email clients pls let me know if u can send and receive emails on the same computer
4. apart from norton prods anyother security programs used by ur system
5. type of internt connection ..cable/dsl/dialup etc ?
6. Operating System ?
7. where did u disable the norton from ?
8. are u using Intenret Explorer or anyother browser?

ipconfiglog seems that u have connection..so once u both answer the above question i will certainly help u to find weather if norton is blocking your access as there are diffent ways of disabling the norton products to check if its blocking access
