    EDIT: Solved I plugged it into a different port in my router and it worked guess port was bad.

    Hey, I have windows pro sp3 and i recently installed this program: http://www.hideyouripaddress.net/ and everything was going good turned of my pc last night turned it on this morning i could not connect. I completely uninstalled the program did not fix anything. I did a system restore also did not work. I tryed winsock fixed i did ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew and many more. NO fix.

    I can ping websites such as google and my ip is 192.168.X.X I have no other options...and when somthing goes wrong and i run out of options I come here ;)

    That's your local intranet IP address. Do you have proxy setting on in your browser? If I'm not mistaken, I think those programs run you through a proxy, may look in options -> connections and make sure proxy settings are clear

    Does this fail on both a wireless and wired connection?
    Are you hardwired directly into the modem or is there a router involved?
    Are other computers affected ?
    And then from the failing pc:

    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.
