    What firewall or security suite are you using?

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 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.

    You have internet access, but DNS is not working.

    Make sure the following services are Started (Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Services).

    DHCP Client
    DNS Client
    Network Location Awareness
    Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

    Sometimes a computer and router stop playing nice together when the router is given as the DNS server. In Network Connections right click on your connection (I'd just try one at a time) - Properties - TCP/IP - Properties - keep it on 'obtain IP auto' but specify a DNS server address: 8.8.4.4 (that's one of the Google public DNS servers).

    Open Internet Explorer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan settings > Proxy server > Advanced > delete proxy server settings > click OK > uncheck all boxes > click OK.

    Try unchecking Automatically detect settings...

    Have you recently uninstalled Norton, McAfee or AVG on that computer?

    This is going to sound dumb, BUT ... I just ran into this problem over the weekend and beat my head against the wall all weekend. May not be the answer to all problems, but I thought I would get it out here as a possible solution.

    Friend's computer could not/ would not connect even though the computer showed connection. After speaking with her ISP today [Monday], I discovered that her credit card had expired and they had her account suspended. I know this sounds dumb, but this is reality.
