    I am working on a notebook, and I have been looking for a fix, but nothing works so far.

    I have:

    Turned off the windows firewall
    Un-installed Norton (via Norton removal tool)
    Un-installed AVG
    Ran Winsock Fix
    Ran Combo Fix (removed a bunch of gunk)
    Ran Malwarebytes (removed a bunch of gunk)
    Ping via CMD google.com (works fine)
    Set IE to not use a proxy
    Set TCP/IP settings to auto
    Ran "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" via CMD

    Firefox will NOT work
    IE will NOT work

    Any ideas?

    Hi:A few things to know.
    Did this ever work ?
    Make and models of:
    Modem and if separate,router.
    Let's see also this :

    From a Johnwill post on the Networking Forum

    Try these simple tests.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

    NOTE: For the items below surrounded with < >, see comments below for the actual information content, they are value substitutions from the previous IPCONFIG command output! Do NOT type <computer_IP_address> into the command, that won't work. Also, the < and > in the text is to identify the parameters, they are also NOT used in the actual commands.

    Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.


    PING <computer_IP_address>

    PING <default_gateway_address>

    PING <dns_servers>


    PING yahoo.com

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

    <computer_IP_address> - The IP Address of your computer, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above. (For Vista/Win7, the IPv4 Address)

    <default_gateway_address> - The IP address of the Default Gateway, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

    <dns_servers> - The IP address of the first (or only) address for DNS Servers, obtained from the IPCONFIG command above.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
