Connected To Internet But Cannot Access Webpages After Upgrade To Vista
Jun 25, 2012
I just recently upgraded my computer to Vista from XP. Since then my computer connects to the internet and runs applications such as Star Trek Online and Skype ok but it won't load pages in any internet browsers.
I bought my laptop 4 weeks ago. It has Windows 8 on it. It worked great until this week. At first, Google Chrome quit working. Then IE quit. I connect wirelessly. It says it is strong, but no Internet access. I do have connectivity on my phone to that router.
I have a Windows XP Laptop and an Windows 7 Starter Netbook. I have recently changed internet provider, returned the previous (Netgear) router and configured a new (D Link) router. Prior to the change of internet provider, both laptops could connect wirelessly without issues.After installing the new router provided by new internet provider, my Windows XP laptop can connect to the internet wirelessly without problems, the signal is strong and the speeds decent. My Windows 7 Netbook can connect to the network and to the internet, however, the speed on it is so low that pages do not load at all. Whilst it remains connected (the connection does not drop), it does not display web pages. Occasionally it displays a page or two, and it seems the problem is fixed, but this lasts no longer than a few minutes, after which it starts displaying "white" pages again. When the connection to the router is wired, the problem disappears and I can access the internet and the pages load well, so the problems is strictly a Wi Fi connectivity issue.
The Windows 7 Starter Netbook that has this problem at home, connects to every single other network I have had the chance to test it on (at work, at internet cafes, at my parents, at my sisters) and it also used to work flawlessly with my home network before I changed internet provider. On all other networks, it works really well.The new (D Link) router seems to work, otherwise my Windows XP laptop would also be having problems... but it doesn't.So both the new (D Link) router and my Windows 7 Starter Netbook work well separately. They just don't work together!I have tried a number of things: restarting the Netbook, restarting the router, re-installing Windows 7 Starter completely, disabling the network adapter and re-enabling it, updating the network driver, unprotecting the network completely, disabling Windows Firewall, disabling antivirus,changing the channels on the router, placing quartz crystals next to both devices and chanting. Below, I am pasting IP Config files showing the details of the settings in both devices (the one that works and the one that doesn't). As far as settings on the router is concerned, I have checked that they are the basic default ones that technical support are recommending.
IP Config of Windows XP Laptop that WORKS WELL:

My os is vista I have belkin Wireless router Iam trying to connect my laptop to wireless.it wont have any problem outside of home but at home i click on connect to a network and click on my wireless network and it says sucesfully connected but it is not connected to internet network and sharing center shows unidentified network?
I am connected to my network wirelessly and I have Internet acces (according to the symbol at the bottom right) bu the Internet doesn't work. At the moment it keeps fluctuating between giving me interne and not I am using Skype to tell me if I have Internet ( when it's green I do when it's grey I don't) I have tried many things on forums like obtaining ip automatically or obtaining a fixed ip. I've tried renewing the ip and all this doesnt work.
Suddenly, one of my laptops is unable to access the internet via my apartment complex's community wifi. It will connect to the network, but times out when trying to access any webpages. All other devices are able to connect to the network and access the internet with no issue. This network is unsecured, so no password is required to access.

Here's my ipconfig/all info:

I've been having this problem for around two years on my current laptop, but today it finally got so frustrating I had to ask about it. I've tried and tried to search for others with a similar problem, but have never found a good solution. When my computer turns on and connects to an internet source (LAN or wifi), it will work fine indefinitely. However, if I join a different LAN or wireless network later, such as when I go from home to school, it will connect to the new network, but after a few minutes, I will be unable to load any web pages (Connection timed out).
Skype and email still work fine, and the only browser I use is firefox, so this may be a firefox-specific issue. If I reset the network adapter being used, then I will be able to load websites again, but after 2-30 minutes, I will run into the same issue and have to reset the adapter again. Joining a different network does not resolve the problem. Restarting firefox does not resolve the problem. Clearing the firefox cache is a temporary solution only, similar to resetting the network adapter. Restarting the computer entirely will result in no connection problems, until I have to change networks again.
Specs are below, and again, I connect to the internet using firefox 14.0.1 Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 22.214.171.124 OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 30 Stepping 5 Processor Count: 8 RAM: 4030 Mb Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 310M, 512 Mb Hard Drives: C: Total - 464783 MB, Free - 133483 MB; Motherboard: TOSHIBA, Portable PC Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled
My Internet is connected as I can load pages through my iPhone on my wireless signal BUT on my laptop the only page that will load is my UniSA home page and my Uni email - nothing else will load - I have tried Mozilla, IE & Safari and get the same response with all of them. Don't know if I have accidentally done something or what?
Im having a problem with connecting to the internet. I have an hp media center pc running XP, ive hooked it up with a ethernet wire and it looks like its connected and alot of activity but when i click on internet explorer it says "web page cannot be displayed"
Applications such as skype, teamviewer, etc, are all working fine, however, when I try to load certain webpages, such as Facebook and forum boards, they don't load, just stay white screen.
Youtube, google, both load, I imagine this is because they're both on the Google servers, apart from any Google related sites, I can't find any that will load for me.
I think this is a problem wth my DNS addresses, I've tried a range of solutions, clearing my DNS, changing my IPv4 address, restarting the router, PC, but I can't seem to find a fix.
Running on windows 7 Home premium
NOTE: I had the Metropolitan police virus yesterday, I did a system restore to remove it, my internet worked fine after, it's only since I've moved from the router at my other house, to the one here that I'm having problems.
I have a laptop with a wireless connection to a netgear router. My Internet work perfectly, however after a certaiN amount of time I can't access the Internet although it still stats that I am connected. It reads " connected with limited access". I then have to restart my laptop to gain Internet access again. I have other computers and laptops and tablets that don't share this problem.
Unable to access webpages and sometimes internet.I will be on my laptop which is the main computer I use (I usually use it wirelessly although I'm having the same problem now, even when I'm hardwired) and suddenly I can't access some or all websites. This isn't just normal dropping for a few seconds at a time, this can last for hours sometimes. Meanwhile, the desktop computer which is directly connected, doesn't have any problems at all.
She has an older HP Vista laptop that connects to the internet just fine (including downloading updates, connecting to messenger clients, etc.), but it will not connect to any of her browsers...
1. I understand firewalls can throw huge issues, I am pretty sure this is where the problem lies. She was using Ad-aware and I am pretty sure that the window that popped up that she clicked switched her firewall settings back to default and left something weird in the system. When I try to disable Windows firewall and go back to Ad-aware it won't let me exit snooze. It asks if I confirm and when I do nothing happens.
2. I have done a winsock reset and made sure that the proxy boxes are unchecked to make sure there isn't a proxy problem.
3. The ipconfig/reset threw no errors, everything looks fine.
4. No hardware conflicts or errors reported in device manager and all drivers are up to date. Again since the internet is actually working minus the browser I don't think it is a hardware issue.
5. No virus detected. Symantec is loaded on the laptop did a run with that, also have AVG that I installed and ran (disabled one and did the other, never run simultaneously). AVG is now uninstalled as Symantec is disabled to avoid any conflict with AdAware.
Is there any way to completely disable all firewalls, remove any settings or registries (if any), and start from scratch with it? Also, as networking is by far my weak point, is there anything I need to check as far as the DNS is concerned?
I have an HP Pavilion PC and am running Windows Vista. My browser is IE. Recently, I have noticed a RED X over the wireless icon on the lower right section indicating that I am not connected to the internet however, I am. In the last couple days my connection has actually started dropping off while in use.
I just reinstalled vista and put my disc with drivers in and may have chosen the wrong network adapter. Does windows automatically locate my adapter? My computer receipt lists "integrated 10/100 network card" and "intel 4965AGN wireless-N mini card".I can't access the Internet.When I ran the setup from the drivers disk, I chose intel 8255x-based PCI ethernet adapter (10/100). My other devices have issues too. There are 3 base system devices an Ethernet controller device and video controller that have the yellow exclamation points by them, as well as the network adapter.

My sis has a toshiba satellite laptop running vista and she cant go on the internet while mine and my dad's can.Her computer was able to go on the internet but then suddenly she cant. I've searched everywhere, i tried resetting the TCP/IP, setting a static IP address, even returned the laptop to factory settings, but no luck.The network page stays as: Computer----------unidentified network-------x------internet[CODE]
I am running Windows Vista service pack 2 using my laptop - Hp Pavilion dv5-1111ea and I have a qwest actiontec gt701-wg router. When I try to connect to the router it says connected to local only and when I diagonise the connection it says that Security policy seetings on this computer might be blocking the connection.
The following policy might need to be adjusted to allow windows to connect: Policy Provider:Windows Firewall Filter Name: Query User
My Laptop stopped having internet access. I am able to connect to my Linksys (says Limited Access) but then it states I do not have internet access. I read other forums and tried to do the "command prompt" but when I try to run as administrator it tells me "The specified service does not exist as an installed service". I am using Windows Vista and McAfee as my spyware.
I am running on Windows Vista and out of no where I cannot connect to my network %70 of the time. When I can connect I have local access and a full bar signal but no Internet access. But when I have internet access every page takes forever to load (if it even loads). I tried reinstalling my drivers and even hanged some registry stuff. My wireless card 8.11g by Broadcom.
My wife can't access the internet on her laptop, The computer is a Dell Inspiron 1750 with Windows 32 bit vista. I have the Internet plugged into the wire on the side of the computer, I am not using the wireless at the home. The wire going to the computer works on another computer for the internet.
Installed new N600 router and every box in the house can access the internet - except for my Vista powered laptop. My network shows up as Unidentified network with 'locla only' access. Ben scouring message boards all day. Can't find a solution at Microsoft.
All of a sudden, one of my devices (a laptop running Vista) is no longer able to access any webpages when I connect via my apartment complex's community wifi. I can connect to the network, but when I attempt to access a webpage, the request will time out. All other devices are able to connect to the network and get to the internet with no issue. The laptop is still able to successfully connect to other networks.
Here's my info when I run ipconfig/all:
Windows IP Configuration Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : dorothea-PC Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . : Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid
Cable modem>Router>4 computers + 1 wireless printer.. But i needed more ports so i bought a trendnet gigabit switch with 8 ports.
Then I Plugged port 4 on router to >switch port 1
When all the computers are turned on and using everything at once i cant access websites but my skype works so i figure its probably a dns issue and my dlink is overloaded? I didnt try to access any sites with the ip only fail on my part.
Once this happened i immediately unplugged everything and restarted the router. I only have my own computer hooked up the router and did a firmware upgrade to 2.10na and my internet works immediately after but when i hook up another comptuer to the network i cant access any pages but my skype works..
I'm currently facing a problem with a ASA5505. I've set it up from factory defaults... From the CLI, I can ping an the outside interface, the GW and an outside IP (ex:126.96.36.199).So I believe that there's no connectivity issue and the configuration is correct.
However, for a reason that I don't know, users can't have access to web pages.The product license allow me to have 50 host connected. Currently I've only got one host connected...
When I enable syslog, I can see the following messages :Deny traffic for protocol 17 src inside: 192.168.1.20/64429 dot ouside:188.8.131.52/53, licensed host limit of 0 exceeded.Where this limitation can come from ?
So, i have set up a working Anyconnect solution, (see attached picture)
Firewall is a 5585-x ssp20 running 8.4.3 Core is cat 6500 Anyconnect client version: 3.1.00495
Configured vpn with a tunneled default route to 172.19.16.1 (Core - cat6500) No split tunnel is configured, everything has to be tunneled and monitored by WCCP in Firewall. Authorization is by Certificate Only.
I can reach inside servers (for example 172.18.254.37) i can reach DMZ server (for example 192.168.138.36) i can surf the internet on regular HTTP (port 80)
but, i cannot surf the internet or DMZ servers using HTTPS (port 443) also, ftp does not work. i have tried to reach external ftp servers who are open to all.
both https and ftp works from the INSIDE network.
I have tried to change the port for Anyconnect, to 444 (for dtls as well) and i can see that all the vpn traffic is going over 444, so 443 should be undisturbed.
but this is not working.. could it be a certificate problem, or am i missing something? NAT/PAT?
I recently deleted Speed Bit Video Accelerator manualy, because it couldn't uninstall itself. After deleting it, Windows 7 wouldn't display web pages in either Firefox or Internet Explorer. I'm currently posting this message in my old Windows Vista laptop, so it's not my internet connection
Well first of all id say im pretty good at these types of things as they have happened to me so many times. But i cant figure this one out. Yesterday my internet just went out. All of the lights on the modem are still on everything says it should be connected but just doesnt work. When i try to open webpages it says DNS Lookup failed. Called tech support they are sending me a new modem atm, but i have 2 other ones around that i have tried and they say that im connected to the internet, but nothing same lookup error and everything so i do not think it is the modem. Flushed dns, manually entered the isps dns , Dont know what else to try at all.
I have an internet connection but web pages will not load.I just brought my computer back home from college and installed an xavb1004 and it is working as i have tried other devices on it so I do not believe it is that. Also I have tried just about everything getting this to work including but not limited to winsock changing all the internet settings making sure no boxes are checked, changing my dns server disabling firewall and all the basic stuff.
