Just what it says. Computer shows internet connection, can not use the internet. I can not use it in any way including messengers and other applications that require internet access and my browser. Here's my ipconfig /all stuff. Anyways I've tried just the basic "reset the router" and also tried using the settings i'd backed up in case something somehow got changed and nothing seems to work. I can ping my own computer, the other one on the same router, and my router. I can not ping the DNS server, or any IP that is outside of my li'l home network. What can I do about this? Is there anything, or do I just need to contact my ISP? The problem started happening all of a sudden, no visible event seems to have caused it. Everything was working fine and then now, nothing. It does not work for either computer, one is a Windows XP SP3 and the other is Vista Home Premium. If there is any more troubleshooting or things I can try, please post them. Thanks. <3

i both computers are not able to connect - then I would look at the router /Modem / ISP

I would check the line is up with your ISP

what are the lights on the router indicating
Unless you have updated a firewall

log onto the router ther should be a status page showing if connected at all

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model and hardware version of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP (Home or Pro), SP1-SP2-SP3, Vista (Home, Business, Ultimate), etc.
The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.




Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.



  • If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?
  • For wireless issues, have you disabled all encryption on the router to see if you can connect that way?
  • Have you connected directly to the broadband modem to see if this is a router or modem/ISP issue?
  • If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?
