I cannot access the internet through EI or Firefox on our home computer that is running Vista.Ofcourse my laptop running XP works fine. I have tried a number of fixes from different forums and so far nothing has worked. I'm working off the same wireless network for both, I have had the Vista computer for about a year, and the internet as worked relatively well until about two days ago. The problem existed before I installed SP1 and has persisted after the install.

Can somone work with me on this to figure out what the problem is? Thanks.

Answer:Internet quit working w/ Vista OS works fine w/ XP OS

Please follow the instructions found HERE - but you will have to copy AutoRuns and the batch file over to the Vista PC.

Hello, I am new here. I have an HP Pavilion entertainment laptop. Everything was functioning just fine. Then, windows update happened. It was a critical update that cannot be undone. I performed the update. Immediately after all of the preinstaled HP software quit working. I fought and fought and I have most of it working again but all of it is very buggy and crashes a lot. HP Help and support and HP health no longer work. I had to install the vista versions and I run them in compatibility mode. They still don't work rite. Another critical update was released and then my internet port on the side stopped working. My laptop cannot connect to the internet through it but will via wireless. In the hardware manager my internet card shows up as the driver failing to load. It is Realtek PCB family controller. Uninstalls and re installs don't work. I even used a registry cleaner (registry first aid) to uninstall it so as to remove all the registry keys. Letting windows try to install the driver fails as does letting the realtek software try. Also, every reinstall just adds a number to the end of it. I am on Realtek (3) now. I need to get this driver to work but it will not. I am not seeing a whole lot about it so I guess this isn't a common problem. Everything else I have works fine so far as I can tell. I also tried using the file browser to hunt down all things realtek related and delete them. Windows just gives me the new hardware box, puts back what I del... Read more

Answer:Wired internet jack not working but wireless works just fine

Run Windows System Restore - choose a restore point prior to the installation of the Windows Update you mentioned -
START | type rstrui

What is the exact model number of the HP laptop - look on the label on the bottom.

Registry cleaners are unnecessary and can cause registry damage -

Hello,

I have a networked computer that is experiencing the following issues:
1. Logmein traffic works perfectly, is it super fast and I have no issues.
2. Internet will not load, or loads impossibly slowly.
3. Dropbox does not load beyond 1KBs and then will drop out
4. Updates will not work/download
5. Downloads/ftp traffic fail

What I have tried.
1. switching ports it is plugged into on the router, to a port that another (perfectly working) computer is plugged into.
2. Changing IP address
3. Running the norton removal tool
4. Logging in under a different account
5. removing the hosts file
6. Setting IP to dynamic

I have had no luck beyond that...any ideas? I am a CCNA here and this is simply driving me NUTS lol

Thanks,

William

So it just happens 100% random out of no where and I get this error:

(note i ripped this image off google but this is the exact thing that happens)
so I found TWO temporary fixes.

One: unplug router / modem for 10 sec and replug

Two: Go to the network settings and disable the ethernet (note I am connected via ethernet cable, 100% wired)
disable it

Enable it BUT i have to enable it about 30 times before it enables.

When it's enabling, it doesn't enable, it shows the message that it's enabling and I refresh the background and it's still disabled. I have to keep enabling until it randomly works (if anyone knows why I have to keep enabling it 30 times for it to actually enable please let me know)
why does my internet randomly stop on my PC? it works fine on other devices while its not working on my PC and it takes forever to enable the ethernet after i disable it.

Hey,

I've been doing some online gaming (world of warcraft), and I kept getting these Error#131 issues. This would cause the game files to become corrupted and then I would have to repair, or reinstall. The WoW tech site says that chronic error #131 messages are either a Hard drive, Ram, or Motherboard issue.

Running the Windows Vista memory diagnostic tool has turned up some odd results, the initial test with a 1gb stick in slot #1 and a 1gb stick in slot #2 came back with errors. I then removed the ram from slot 2 and ran the test on slot 1 with 1 stick of ram.... no errors. I did the same with the other stick in slot 1.....no errors. this lead me to believe that it was slot#2 giving me the issue so I moved the ram from slot 2 to slot 3, thus having 1gb of ram in slot 1 and 1gb of ram in slot 3. After a little while......error#131 appeared.

So I then tested both sticks in slots 1 and 3 together and came back with ram errors, I then tested both sticks in slot #1, and then again in slot #2 and both tests came back fine. Any ideas on what this issue could be? I know both sticks are the same brand, speed, totally identical.
 

Answer:Ram Works fine in single sticks, not working fine together :P

I have searched for this problem and can't find it anywhere. Every few minutes my IBM Access Connections keeps shutting down, then restarting all by itself. I usually don't have to do anything to restart it, but once in a while it takes too long to restart, so I reconnect manually. I don't know if it makes any difference, but it didn't happen until I downloaded Google Chrome. I've installed Service Pack 3, but no change. And while I'm at it, my laptop will no longer restart when I click "restart". It just powers off.

I am trying to get to the route of my problem. There seems to be no problem with my software for Windows XP sp2, however, when I try to go online, I get "Cannot find server, Page cannot be displayed". and if I try another web page, a dialog box appears saying "Internet Explorer could not open the search page"I have run cmd, and websites are pinging with a return of 100%, and all IP addresses are correct. I am on cable broadband (telewest), and this connection is always on, except when I reset it once per week at the mains switch.Could this be a motherboard fault? I have tried re-installing all the drivers, however, in Device manager, there still is a question mark beside the PCI device. The following is what my computer runs on:AMD SEMPRON 3200+ AM2512 DDR2 533 RAMMAXTOR 160GB HARD DRIVE 7200 8MB CACHEASROCK ALIVE NF4G AM2 SATA 2Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an older laptop that is running Windows XP.  This is not my main computer but I do like to use it when I do not want to use tablet or desktop.  It virtually will not browse internet in regular windows mode.  It freezes and takes forever to go from one internet site to another.  However, the internet works fine when in safe mode.  I have Malware Anti Malware Free and AVG 2015 Free.  I have run scans in both safe mode and windows mode and it does not detect anything.  I also have CC Cleaner which I run frequently.  I have downloaded Autoruns and tried to delete some startup loads using your data base.  However, many are not in your data base.  I did find some that I could eliminate on startup but not that many because if it was not in your database, I left alone.  Do you have any other suggestions I could try.  As I said, this laptop is older and not my main computer but I would really like to try and revive it so that I can at least use it sometimes.

Answer:Internet freezes but works fine in safe mode Windows XP

If a client comes to me not only now but, for quite a while now, I will not let them spend time, money, effort or thought on an XP machine.  For starters they absolutely should not be used connected to the Internet.
Certainly @ this point in time, if an XP machine is not working properly, just don't bother w/ it... can't be used on the Net, anyway.  As for non-Net use, still, not worth bothering w/ it.  Time to just let it go & move on.  After 15 yrs, put it out to pasture.

Hello,

I've got a Dell laptop here that isn't functioning properly. I can't get this to work for the life of me! I am currently using this laptop with a different hard drive, it's the install on the SSD that doesn't work. I know that the quick fix would be to simply reload windows, but I don't want the quick fix.

Basically, laptop works with Windows 7 install on a hard drive, no issues. On the SSD, where the ONLY applications loaded are Office 2013 and Firefox (and all the latest updates), the internet does not work (I can ping yahoo.com and get a response, so DNS is fine). The problem persists on IE and Firefox. I have no AV software other than MSE, and the problem persists in Safe Mode w/ networking. The hosts file is clean. The internet worked on the computer just fine when I loaded it, I hadn't used the SSD in a while and when I popped it in, the internet wasn't working. I believe something is getting in the way of port 80, but I can't figure out what. I have disabled all startup applications and all nonwindows services. The computer does not have bonjour. I have cleared history/cookies to no avail. I can't find anything suspicious in the running processes. I can't seem to turn off the windows antimalware process to test that, though.

Any ideas?

Answer:Internet not working, windows update, ping, DNS, etc. working fine

I decided to run hijack this and found two BHO's. It's funny that on my new install that I used a handful of times, I have adware, but on this install that's been going for years, I have nothing. Oh well. So I had "Crossrider" and "Coupon Companion". I removed all traces of both, yet still no go. It looks like this managed to install itself on 12/2... which had to be damn close to the date that I bought the SSD, however, I had internet activity as recent as 12/26. Here's the log of what Coupon Companion did:

Hi

I am having a really difficult problem at the moment...
I am an IT Tech and all our pc's work fine on the network AND Internet.
I have a clients laptop with me, it works perfectly on the network but NO internet what so ever. I done numerous virus scans, Malware removal etc but with no luck sorting the problem.

Also, if it helps, when I try to repair the wireless connection "Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the followng action cannot be completed: Disabling wireless adapter" also previously, same error message but something about the DNS when repairing the wireless connection. the drivers are up to date. Realtek RTL8187. I have configured it manually including the correct DNS.

Also if i try to disable programs to run on startup through msconfig while in the Administrator account it tells me i do not have administrative rights, even though the account does.

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 with Windows 7. I have been using Time Warner Internet. It worked fine until yesterday. WiFi stopped working out of the blue. When I tried, wired connection works pretty well. I do not recall any significant changes to my computer while this happened. So now I can connect to the wifi hotspot but it says "No Internet Connection". When I connect the LAN wire with the WiFi router, internet works. The moment I remove it, it says No Internet Access, although computer is connected to the hotspot and signal is very well.

The drivers are being shown as up to date in device manager.

I tried following instructions given here: http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-Winsock-and-TCP/IP
This didn't work. Problem persists.

I have been through some threads around here. This is the ipconfig output:

Hi guys, I connect to my router using a Netgear WG111v3 USB adapter with WPA security. It works fine for about 5-10 minutes then websites won't load anymore. I am using Vista so I can't use my onboard network card because Vista doesn't support WPA
I can ping websites still which makes me wonder where the problem lies. For example I can go on google fine, then later I can't connect again but I can still ping it. That goes for all other websites even if I haven't gone on them that boot. Anyone got any ideas what is going wrong? Because it makes no logical sense for this to be happening. Thanks.
 

Answer:Internet works fine, then

So later you can still ping google, but it will not let you view google using your browser?

Recently got some nostalgia and wanted to play AOE. I have the original, the expansion pack, and AOE2 age of kings.
The original AOE and the expansion installed, loads, and runs flawlessly, I didn't have to do anything special.

AOE2 however is giving me trouble.
I click to launch the game, the disc whirs in the drive, and then stops. No load screen, no error messages, nothing.


What I've tried-
Running it in every compatibility mode option there is, as an administrator, tried changing color resolution, tried a clean boot startup, nothing has produced any change.

What's going on here?
It's frustrating that the original works fine, yet this one does not.
I understand it's available on steam, but I own the discs, I don't want to pay $20 for something I already own.

Ideas?

Also tried uninstalling Windows SP3. Nothing worked! IE and Outlook Express work fine. Before this happened I uninstalled the free Norton Corporate Edition which came with my new computer and installed my university's Symantec Antivirus 10.1.5.5000. I read somewhere that Norton uninstall can cause this problem, but don't know what to do.

Ok, after updating XFire and getting a typical "Memory can't be read" error, my internet on my XP Machine stops working. So far, i've tried a virus scan (with weeks-old definitions) and Ad-Aware (again, weeks-old definitions), and a uninstall/reinstall of my NIC (Intel Pro/1000 CT) and it does not want to detect the connection at all.

In addition, my computer in general has just gotten "slow" considering its not breaking a sweat, and its a P4 2.80 GHz. It takes a few seconds just to start a program which would take a split second. I'm assuming this is tied in with the internet problem, or this is the cause.

Hello, everyone. A computer of a friend of mine, an HP Pavilion dv7 laptop with 64-bit Vista installed on it, recently refused to open any webpages with any of the browsers installed (IE8, FF and Chrome), while other applications which do not use port 80 by default work just fine (i.e. MSNmsgr, WinUpdate etc.)
The problems started after I removed a few viruses off the computer and Removed the trial version of Norton, which has expired prior to that. I tried to do some troubleshooting -- disabled the Windows Firewall, uninstalled AVG (which is also known for causing issues) and ran "netsh winsock reset catalog" with no result, so now I don't know what else there is I can do, so I'm looking for some help.
 

Answer:Internet works fine, browsers don't

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 in red 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.

IPCONFIG /ALL

PING <computer_IP_address>

PING <default_gateway_address>

PING <dns_servers>

PING 74.125.45.100

PING yahoo.com

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.

I have an annoying issue with my internet connection. From time to time i can't connect to Steam, Battle.net or download from torrents (I'm mentioning torrents becuase there might be a connection). I share the internet with 10 other people all of them connected mostly via wi-fi. Is is possible that the connection is too low to connect to the already mentioned above servers? There is nothing wrong with my pc or internet settings because it works fine for a week and then all of a sudden not. Once we tried to hard reset the main router and after that it worked just fine.
Realy don't know what might be the reason and I would love to finally find out what's causing it.
The router is http://www.planet.com.tw/en/product/...t.php?id=34631
The modem is provided by austrian telecom company and is this one Pirelli PRG AV4202N

Thank you all for any help.
 

Answer:Internet works fine still cannot connect

It is possible that it could be a network congestion. Does your computer wireless adapter display any diagnostic as to why the connection was lost?

This is weird.
Cable internet works fine when I go straight from the modem to the computer ethernet port.
However, if I do anything through a router I can barely get a signal or a connection even to google.
Here's what I've tried so far....
I have a Belkin45 Router and a Netgear WGR614 Router
I have gone straight from the cable modem through each router into the ethernet port of the computer...nothing
I have gone from the modem to the router and used my Netgear wireless USB and I get a signal from the router, I scan the network and find the router no problem but still can not connect to the internet. Did this with each router and found each one no problem.
I have tried 6 different cables
I keep getting server not found or time outs.
Like I said, weird.
 

Answer:Internet works fine...until going through router

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

Make and model of the broadband modem.
Connection type, wired or wireless.
If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
Make/model of network card or wireless adapter.
Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2, Vista, etc.

Let's try this with either of the routers:

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

Most likely causes:
There might be a typing error in the address.
If you clicked on a link, it may be out of date.

What you can try:
Retype the address.

When i plug in my memory stick at home and click on computer and on removable disk, it doesnt want to show me my files. The program quits responding and I have to take out my memory stick. Sometimes, it will show me my files but it won't let me access them. It will take forever to act like its loading and then it won't and "Computer" says it is not responding. Is it my device? I bought it Windows Vista compatible. I dont understand why I cant get to my files. After removing the stick so my computer will go back to being responsive, the program "My computer" will not recognize the device again. I have tried all my USB ports, they do the same thing. I have restarted my computer and it does the same thing. I need help!!!

>>>To Blind Dragon. I have no pop ups. I also use Norton Firewall Security.

>>>To jobeard, Windows Vista fails to uninstall USB devices on my computer. Also, when the program "My computer" freezes up, u cant do anything unless u remove the USB first bc it glitches the computer.
 

Answer:My USB isnt working with my laptop, but at school it works fine...

Obviously its not the device. It has something to do with your computer.

When you plug in the device just let it sit for a minute, vista should go and get the proper drivers/firmware for the device.

Watch you tray in the bottom right hand side of the screen. Does a box pop up when you plug in the device.

Do you have a firewall installed if so which one?

I have an Ideapad U330 that will not get online using ethernet in windows. Before you ask, no it isnt my router. When I use an Ubuntu bootable disk, the ethernet works fine and I can surf the web without issue. I reformatted and installed windows 7 x86 (It had windows XP previously and the ethernet didnt work there either), installed all the drivers, and updated the BIOS, the ethernet still does not work while the wireless works fine. I thought this was a hardware issue until the ethernet worked with no issue in Ubuntu.













Solved!

So this happened before. I bring my computer over to a friends house for a couple days, then when bringing it back to my house and hooking it back up the mic does not want to work with skype or any program that records.

Had this happen last week then it just fixed itself. As of right now everything is plugged in the right spot, all the checks and green bars move when i talk into it in the windows settings. Even when I go to monitor mic option i can hear fine, it is working.

Just for some reason it is not working with any chat program. It is not working in skype, steam, and windows recording. WTF is going on here

Answer:Mic stopped working with programs, works fine with monitor check?!

Check that the device the mic is currently plugged into is set as the default device:

The level indicator and monitoring functions will still work for non default devices, but only the default device will be used with applications (unless the applications themselves have the option to override this).

So I have 2 laptops, a win 7 and a win 8,
The windows 7 laptop works on the internet fine, but the windows 8 one always disconnects, even when the win 7 isn't on.
It disconnects usually when I'm running multiple programs that use the internet on it, but when I run a game like counter-strike, it disconnects too, but not nearly as often.

The router is from 2008 or 2009, but it's a tiny aztech one. I'm sure it's not the isp, because like I said, the other laptop works fine.
 

Answer:One laptop works fine, but the other keeps on disconnecting from the internet

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer's web site.. Reinstall it if you already have it.

What do you do to regain connection after it has been lost?

Hi guys,

So around 4 weeks ago, I got a new router and internet. The internet is working great for everyone on every device except for my computer. For some reason, my internet is not consistent with its ping (and this is just on my computer, the internet works great with my iphone). It almost seems like for every 1 minute of good internet I have, I have 10 or so minutes where the internet just stinkss. I am posting this on one of those good minutes. The problem started after I, 1. Got a new graphics card, and 2. Changed my antivirus software from Avira to Malwarebytes. If you guys need any more info just ask .

I just got a brand new computer with wireless capabilities. After some configuring, i am connected to my home network, but i cant connect to the internet that is set up on the host computer. i have already checked all the settings on my computer, disabled the firewall (because i have windows xp sp2), and reset the router twice. i am just wondering what else could be the problem. could the local area connection have something to do with it? please help.

Answer:Wireless Network Works Fine, But Cant Get On Internet

How did you attempt to hook up so far? Did you try this:

start > control panel > network connections > wireless network setup wizard
~~~~~~
Or this on the host computer:

start > control panel . network connections > setup or change your work or home network setup
Run the wizard, choose "This computer connects directly to the internet. The other computers on my network connect to the internet through this computer"
~~~~~~~~

Wait a minute. Upon rereading your original post, I need to know what you are using a router for. Is it a wireless router? If so, then your new computer is not connecting to the internet through the 'host' computer, but rather through the router.

I shall await your answers.

I have a PC running Win XP Pro and a laptop (acer aspire) running Win XP Home. Both have wireless adapters installed and working.

When I connect them via crossover cable it all works wonderfully. File sharing and internet works great. The PC connects to the internet through ethernet adapter which connects to a cable modem.

HOWEVER, when i set up a peer to peer 'ad hoc' wireless network, the file sharing works fine however the internet does very strange things. Certain websites work fine (such as google, bbc.co.uk and certain others), however others just don't load at all. Messenger doesnt work, outlook doesnt download e-mails and no videos or programs will download. I have tried this with my friends laptop too (same make) and the same thing happens!!

I have tried changing the MAC address and playing around with the ip addresses, but not being an expert i dont really know what i am doing!!

If you have heard of this problem and know how to sort it, please let me know, cos this is driving me insane!! Thanks.

Answer:Internet works fine over crossover, but not through WLAN!

Sounds like you need a router. The things you mention need to be able to reach the specific ip addresses of the two computers.

I just had a quick question. I have a wireless N adapter on my PC and I have never had any trouble. I switched ISP's and they brought out a new router and now my network always says 'identifying', and will only say 'connected' every 5 minutes or so, and will only stay connected for maybe 2 seconds tops. What I find weird is even when the network says it's identifying the internet works just fine, 25ms ping on speedtest. Signal strength is 4 out of 5 bars. I'm not too concerned since everything works just fine, but I was wondering if anyone knows what is up with this new phenomenon.
 

Answer:Wireless always 'identifying' but internet works fine??

Uninstall network adapter, reinstall adapter.

Then reinstall drivers

Dell Latitude D520 running Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3. Everything about this laptop works fine except for its wireless ethernet. Even the wireless ethernet works fine when accessing the internet and when downloading files; but, when accessing the LAN, I get 'access denied' sometimes and other times I get sl-o-o-o-o-w transfers of files and messages telling me the files I'm copying or running are corrupt.

Example: I attempted to copy a file across my LAN to this laptop. On the WiFi, it copied very slowly for about 10 minutes or so and finally aborted when the bar graph showed about 20% complete. On the wired ethernet, the same file copied successfully in about 12 seconds.

I've checked the settings for the wired and wireless NIC and I can't find any differences.

To be clear, the wired LAN does fine for both internet and LAN access. The wireless ethernet works fine for the internet and presents the problem only when accessing the LAN.
 

Answer:Solved: Wireless works fine for internet but not for LAN

"when accessing the lan" ???

do you have multiple machines on a lan that you are trying to transfer files from???

If yes are they all on the same workgroup????

I'm sure this has been asked 1000 times but I cannot seem to find my exact issue anywhere. Hopefully this helps myself and anyone who runs into this issue.

To start, I have Windows 7 Professional 64bit. Everything worked 100% fine with absolutly no issue and then.... I moved. Now we have Fios instead of Comcast.

Now to the issue. When I have the ethernet connected I cannot get internet access but I have full network access. I went out and purchased a new wirless card and wirless works just fine. I tested 2 different cables, recrimped both of them and nothing. I have activity on the PC and the Router so I am sure they are good.

I have tried everything I have read online, Updated Realtek Family PCI Ethernet drivers from MSIglobal. Disabled/Enabled. ipconfig /flushdns, /release and /renew. I went as far as Backing up and reformating the Hard Drive and before reinstalling the backup I tested it and nothing. Restored my backup file and yep.. nothing.

Its kind of frustrating. I'm not exactly and expert but i am in no way a novice either. This one has me stumped. Im thinking maybe it is a windows service that is not set to start correctly but I figured I would creat a post while I am at work and maybe have and answer to test before I hunt through the services tonight.

Any advice is greatly appreciated

Thanks

I am currently using a Dell Laptop with Windows Vista, and I'm connected to the internet using a Linksys wireless router. My internet connection is working fine right now and I can connect to the internet fine. But when I try and download something, like a song or a game, I only get speeds of like 10-15 KB per second, which is very slow for this computer.

This problem started like three days ago, and I don't remember installing any new programs in recent memory...

Does anyone have an idea why this could be happening?
 

Answer:My internet works fine, but downloads are very slow...

Make sure your router connection has security enabled (a password and whatnot from the router settings). People around you may be using your connection and this might slow it down.

Hello, I've recently bought a new computer and I finally got a cord for the internet for it.

Internet works fine for a few minutes(around 2-5 usually), then it completely stops. It doesn't say it was disconnected, it just stops.

So I first thought it might be the cable, so I plugged it in to my laptop for a day and it worked fine. I figured it will work now with the desktop, not at all.

I am on Hughes net, and I have the Ethernet cord plugged into a wireless router.(Wireless has been working just fine the past few days.) We have used a desktop computer with this type of setup before and it worked just fine, that desktop was like a 2001 Dell that could barely stay on.

I am at a loss right now, I've unplugged and plugged almost everything you could possibly do that too. Tried different ports and such just to get different results.

Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks for spending some time helping.

Hello,


I'm an IT guy with a background in Network administration, and this one has me scratching my head.

I'm also a DJ, and was installing an application a friend gave to me (freeware) for joining/splicing MP3 files

Here goes:

I double click on the install, a dos box opens and it's decompressing. Then the Windows installer comes up, everything looks normal, so I continue installing the program. (it installs successfully) Meanwhile, in the background, I get a pop-up from Symantec Corporate Anti-Virus telling me a virus has been found (Trojan) in my Internet Explorer Cache directory (setup.exe). It was very generic looking, so I paid it no mind, figuring it had stopped the spyware-installing program from executing, right? WRONG!

I open up my taskman (CTRL-ALT-DEL), not being a dummy, and find processes running I do not recognize..(gee, I wonder why!) I have to terminate them a couple of times to get them to stay gone (Also used "Terminate Process Tree" on one, then they all disappeared) ie.exe was one of them. I ran housecall, it attempted to delete the Webhance infection, and could not. It also found something that was a supposed unknown variant of "VUNDO", and matched characteristics with it. It could not delete that.

So, (having done this many times before on the computers at the office) I go into the Program Files Directory, and find two directories I do not know:

So, I'm working in this domain environment and 99% of everything is peachy-keen. But every now and then someone will complain that they have no internet access. This maybe happens to one user in 40 maybe once a month - tops. So it's not critical.
Just very weird.

Most workstations are Windows 7 since the client hasn't been keen to use Win 8 with Autocad. Windows Server 2008 R2 running DNS, DHCP and VPN server. No rogue DHCP servers. We checked.

When checking out the workstation I note that the user can get to the server for files. They can ping the DNS server and gateway by name or IP and get a correct response, but when you try to ping google.com, no response.

My usual fix is just set them static above the DHCP scope. Forget it for a week. Come back and reset them to DHCP and everything will be fine.

Has anyone run in to anything like this? Any suggestions on what might need checking?

I think this has been happening since I upgraded to windows 8.1, back in October/November (which is around where this problem started). It's WiFi internet.

I can connect to the internet just fine, speeds are normal, all that good stuff. But when I'm connecting to a new network it takes forever (and "Connecting to the network is taking longer than usual" comes up) and it comes up with "The connection is limited."

The most annoying part is that this happens between four DIFFERENT connections in 2 countries. So. I need this issue solved, it takes forever to connect to the internet if I disconnect for any reason, My phone connects to the WiFi just fine, so it's not a WiFi issue. Even connecting to the WiFi with an ethernet cable doesn't work.

Hello,
I've struggled all night to find a solution to this problem but I dont see to find the answer. I share a router with my roomates and we both have macbooks. I also have an additional PC.

When I tried accessing certain websites (for example: www.rapidshare.com or my.calendar.net) from the macbooks I get a DNS error:

DNS ERROR - cannot find server.

Also next to the address bar is shows me that "the website does not support identity information". However, it works fine with my PC when I enter the address. I tried flushing the arp cache using the following commands:

sudo arp -d -a and
dscacheutil -flushcache

but the problem persists. In addition, I did a tracert command in my PC to find the IP address. I typed the ip address in the macbook computer and it work perfectly.

First, I thought it was my macbook but the problem is the same in my roommates. Also, I thought (for some reason) I got the adress blocked but it works in my PC.

So I am assuming its my router (DI-2254) but I reset it and nothing. I suspect it has to be with my PS3 that I used when trying to play online but I doubt it.

?? Any solutions ????
Thank you!

I have been trying to diagnose this problem for a while now:

On a 4 computer network, all machines see each other in their windows workgroup, 2 computers can connect (via windows filesharing) to each other but not to the 2 others, and 2 computers can connect to the other 2 but not each other. Pings follow the same pattern, and all computers can acess the internet from behind the router. all firewalls have been removed, routing tables appear to be fine, and traffic is getting through to the isolated computers (captured using wireshark).

Any ideas?

ive been using the same setup for months, my laptop connects to our wireless network, its been perfect, our ipads connect to it too, theres never been a problem, then last night out of the blue it just stopped working, all the devices and my laptop can still connect to the network just fine and they can browse the net and ask questions on forums (), but they cant connect to game servers, my daughter cant play godus on her ipad, my son cant connect to minecraft, i cant connect to world of warcraft.

I did have a message pop up briefly on my laptop that there was an IP conflict and i thought that might have been something to do with it, i tried everything i could to get a new IP address, i did the ipconfig /release /renew thing, i tried leaving the modem and router cables out all night so i'd get a new one from my ISP but none of these actually worked, after checking i can see that i still have the same IP address.

But it still didnt make sense to me because its not only my laptop that cant connect to games, the other laptop and the ipads are also having the same problem. I googled for hours, trying various things, the main one i kept seeing was port forwarding, even though i had never needed to do that before i figured i'd give it a go and tried to open up wow's ports first.

Last night my Internet suddenly crashed, and now both Internet Explorer and Firefox are unable to connect to the Internet although Skype strangely works perfectly. This makes me think it is a DNS issue but I don't know how to proceed. I have tried:

Restarting
Resetting winsock, IPv4, IPv6
dnsflush
Changing proxy settings (currently there is no proxy)
Using different connections (I am on a wired connection, although two different wireless connections get the same results)
System restore. When I first tried system restore, I chose the nearest point to restore to and was met with "The specific object was not found (0x80042308)." Clicking run system restore then resulted in "Catastrophic failure (0x8000FFFF)."
IPv4 and IPv6 are both set to automatically aquire DNS and IP
Removed Bonjour just to be safe
Took down all firewalls
Ran a full virus scan

I can ping my IP, default gateway, and DNS servers along with any other IP but I cannot ping URLs. Attempting to connect to a URL results in "Server not found" and connecting directly to an IP results in a connection time out.

I'll try to upload what I believe to be the relevant bits of my ipconfig. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Internet browsers don't work' but Skype works fine

Here is my ipconfig screenshot, hopefully this information is helpful.

Hi,
 
On my desktop computer, all access to the internet is blocked except for one program. (Slavanap). people can log into me there, Also, it seems my windows firewall somehow got disabled.
It did not start that way though, At first, It seemed that I could just not use windows Explorer, everytime I would open it it would crash, but using google chrome, it worked fine. then slowly that stopped working as well, and I started using Mozilla firefox that i had on the computer and it worked ok till I rebooted. now nothing works except for that one program, slavanap.
 
I did a windows network diagnostics and everything passed except the DNS and HTTP, HTTPS, FTP connectivity. They all failed.
So it seems i have a DNS failure on all levels of the test. The HTTP part of th test fails on all levels as well. everything else passes
Under HTTP, HTTPS test,  I get an error 12007 "The address could not be resolved.
 
My laptop can access the internet, though without a problem via the same modem, so I am assuming that It is not the modem and it is not my service provider, but rather some kind of malware on the computer that changed settings and disabled my firewall. It is greyed out so it cannot be turned on. When I tried to turn it on another way it told me the firewall service was off and when it tried to turn it on it failed. It said it is controlled by group policy.  I checked group policy and I do not see anything that is disabled.

I hooked up a brother MFC-790CW fax/scan/printer to my wireless/wired belkin router. I have a desktop that is hardwired to the router and it can access the MFC-790 with no problems and in several different configurations. BUT, the laptop just won't talk to it. WHY? The laptop has no trouble connecting to the router and accessing the internet. I have installed all of the MFC-790 software. The laptop successfully pings each entitiy on my network. So, I'm stumped. The laptop has a Marvel Yukon wireless adapter. Maybe there are some issues there. I don't know. My laptop is using Windows XP. Do I need to upgrade it to Vista or windows 7? I thought that maybe I needed a print server or a residential gateway, but the guys at the geek squad said "no, it should work". I have since found that the MFC-790 has a printer server in it. So that is not the problem. I suspect that the laptop would access the printer just fine if I wired it to the router. So I think that the wireless aspect of this puzzle is where I need to focus. But I can't see why the laptop can access the internet wirelessly through the router but not the printer. Would love any input on this. Thanks.

Hello,My name is Vladan and I have had a problem occur yesterday. My internet stopped working.I immediately tried my phone's wireless connection and saw that it was working fine, so I tried laptop wireless and it too was working. When I plug in my network cable it stops working.My ethernet internet connection status shows that Ipv4 and Ipv6 have "no internet accsess". It's not just my laptop's wired internet that stopped working, it's the whole network I have in my apartment consisting of two more computers who also lost their wired-ethernet internet accsess. I suspect something is wrong with my router since it relays my internet but wireless works fine so I'm stumped. When I plug in my cable it shows limited connectivity.I have tried ipconfig /release - /renew, I have tried netsh winsock reset and netsh int ip reset log.txt I have tried (netsh winsock reset catalog), also I tried (netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log) and it said the following ::::::Resetting Interface, OK!Resetting Neighbor, OK!Resetting Path, OK!Resetting , failed.Accsess is denied.Resetting, OK!Restart the computer to complete this action.::::I don't know what is this "failed and accsess is denied" but it might be the problem.I have rebooted my router several times but also with no results.

Answer:Network troubleshoot - Ethernet (wired) stopped working, Wireless works fine.

Did your ISP give you this router such as your leasing it etc? If so contact them for a replacement.If you own this router then I'd try factory reset button to set it back to factory default. If that doesn't cure this then buy a new router. They are pretty cheap these days.Your router could have been hacked, the access denied is strange!

My desktop (windows 7 ultimate 64bit) has been able to connect fine to the internet until I got home from work this morning. My laptop is connecting to the same modem fine through wireless (along with my wii). The modem I am using is Motorola SB 901. When I rightclick my connection on my desktop and hit troubleshoot problems, I get 'local area connection 2 doesn't have a valid ip configuration'. Same thing happens when I switch the ethernet cord to local area connection 1. When I go to control panel, network and internet, network and sharing, the connection map at the top stops between my pc and the network (which is now labeled as 'unidentified network').

Here is a list of what I have done so far to try and resolve the issue:

1. Replaced the ethernet cord with one I know is working
2. Full scanned my pc for viruses
3. Disabled all firewalls and virus protection programs
4. Restored my pc to a previous save state
5. Reset winsock with cmd via these prompts: netsh winsock reset catalog and netsh int ip reset reset.log hit
6. This attempt is unfinished as I am getting stuck. I am attempting to setup a static ip to attempt to resolve the issue, but when I open cmd and type ipconfig/all, the default gateway under my local area connection is completely blank.

Here is what comes up with ipconfig/all:

A few days ago my desktop booted up very slowly and I was not able to connect to any webpages or any programs which use the internet. I just left it to sit for a few days and tried to boot it up again today, it still booted rediculously slow (took about 10 minutes) but it's still not working so I figured I'd register here and ask for some help. The router which I have connected to my desktop's modem is used to give internet to my laptop is still working fine (I'm posting this from my laptop). I've tried to do a system restore on my desktop, but the restores get an error and don't work. Also when i do the system restores, my desktop icons wont load so i have to end the explorer.exe process and then run the process again, after which all the icons show. (this only happens after I system restore). Another thing that is weird is that I can still connect to AIM (the instant messanger) on my desktop, but nothing else. Not sure what to do at this point, hopefully you guys can help.

Thanks for any help you may be able to offer...

Answer:internet limited access in regular mode works fine...

In this case, it is recommended to perform a clean boot to check if one or more applications in your computer are causing conflict when you work in normal mode. To know how to perform clean boot and to troubleshoot issues while in clean boot environment, you can refer to the instructions mentioned on the following link:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135 Hope this will help you.

Several scans have been preformed before posting this, it was infected with zeroaccess rootkit, which I can no longer see traces of. Here is whats been done so far, this is over a remote connection to this pc so I want to make sure if possible, that everything looks ok before booting back into normal mode to test.
ran TDDSkiller, rogue killer, tweaking.com tool. Rogue Killer found lots of traces of zeroaccess, ran tdds in normal mode, as well as adw. Not 100% sure but I believe Hitman pro and Malwarebytes was run as well, Bit Defender endpoint is installed as well. I do not have the log files for them, so we will start from scratch.

Got a weird situation with a compaq desktop. I upgraded the system memory to 1.2gb for a woman. She took the unit home, everything works fine, except she can't connect to internet. I got the unit back, and it connected to the network fine. The desktop still can't connect to the internet even after I did a complete system restore. Comcast agreed to replace her modem with a new one, and her friend's laptop can connect to the internet fine. She told me that the network connection showed connected, just when using IE, she got no server error. I tried the desktop with my network connection and I can surf the net with IE. Right now I told her to bring the desktop to her friend's house and try it there. If that still doesn't work, I'm out of idea. Any suggestions?

Hey all,

I had an annoying virus the other day, and ended up removing it with MalawareByte in safe mode. But all of a sudden I noticed when I tried to connect to the iTunes store it instantly gave me an error saying "connection timed out, Check network settings", yet my internet (wired) works fine browsing with firefox etc. Then I noticed when I launched Steam it wouldn't display anything on the Steam store except a white screen that says "Navigation to this store was canceled". Same thing happened with every application I tried that uses the internet for updates etc. I even tried Windows update, and I go the same thing.

Like I said- The internet itself works fine, Browsing and downloading have no Issue.

I'm running Vista 64bit, current updates installed as of a week or so ago. Other computers on my network don't have the problem, so it must be something with this machine.

I don't have any antivirus software running, and Windows firewall/security center is completely turned off.

It's probably something simple, but I've messed with every network setting I can think of to no avail. I haven't found an answer to this specific problem anywhere, but people with similar problems seemed to have luck with putting their Vista disc in and doing a repair. My copy of Vista is completely genuine, but it may take me all weekend to hunt for my disc.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!
 

Answer:*All applications are blocked from internet access, yet browsing etc works fine?

Setup DMZ for the affected computer Routers contain firewalls and other network technology that may be causing this problem, but most also have support for a "Demilitarized Zone" (DMZ) computer which is not put behind the firewall. This is a convenient way to test the router, and users should first find what IP address is being given to their computer, and then set that IP address as the DMZ computer. If iTunes connectivity works, then the problem is clearly with the firewall settings in the router.

Ensure ports 80 and 443 are open The router should have internet ports 80 (http) and 443 (https) open by default, but it is possible some setting has changed to restrict these ports in some situations, possibly by them being reserved for a specific IP address on the network through port forwarding. These settings can be automatically set in some cases, so users should check and remove any port forwarding or port triggering settings that might include these numbers.

Disable Firewalls Routers usually contain some sort of firewall which is enabled by default. As a test, users might try disabling the various firewalls that are on the router. These might include NAT, SPI, or content filters, in addition to "true" firewalls which block specific ports and services. If any options to disable firewalls are available in the router's settings, users are encouraged to try turning them off.

Hi and thanks -  I have a T43 running Windows XP with a sound issue.  Since about a month ago, anything over the internet (ie  pandora, youtube, etc.) "skips" - sound pops in and out annoyingly.  However, internally, such as playing mp3's from the hard drive or a flash drive works perfectly.   I have uninstalled and reinstalled the "Soundmax integrated digital drivers" , "removed" the device (from device mgr) and let the "add harware wizard" find it again, etc., etc.   Can you help me?  Thanks!

Answer:t43 sound - skips on internet streams but works fine locally

When you say "Internet"...are you implying a wired connection, or a wireless one?
 
What is the full 7-character model number of that T43 - located on the same sticker that holds the serial number and the production date on the bottom of the machine - so we could look at the exact configuration....

This problem happened after sending my laptop away to be 'fixed' for a faulty wireless connection. It came back with both this problem and photoshop failing to start ('licensing for this product has stopped working'), where they both worked perfectly before. I can't send it away again as I need it for uni work, but this is driving me mad.
Pages are not loading in both IE and Firefox (3.0.6), there is no error message, just 'Loading...' in the tab title and a blank white page - loading bar appears in the bottom right but remains empty indefinately. When this happens, MSN and other such programs keep working fine.
This happens randomly with no apparent cause - the browsers will work fine and then suddenly seem to 'switch off' in this way and not load any pages.
Wireless capability is on and internet connection is working fine for other people in the house. Disconnecting and reconnecting does nothing.
Reinstalling hasn't solved the problem.
Scanned with Kapersky to no avail, can't find any viruses.
The only thing that fixes this problem is an entire restart of the laptop. I'm finding myself having to restart several times a day and it's very frustating!

My PC with windows 7 is the only computer with issues in the house. Ethernet works perfectly but wifi doesn't even when I don't have the ethernet hooked up. The wifi says it is connected but browsers, steam, and Itunes don't work. I have Bitdefender A/V and already tried uninstalling it, no change. I also uninstalled steam and Itunes with still no change. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the wireless adapter. I tried looking and I don't recall downloading or installing anything around the time the problem started. Before I try replacing the adapter itself, I was hoping for help here since I saw a very similar problem in another thread.

Hey all,

I had an annoying virus ("AV" or "AVE") the other day, and ended up removing it with MalawareByte. But now when I try to connect to the iTunes store it instantly gives me an error saying "connection timed out, Check network settings", yet my internet (wired) works fine browsing with firefox etc. Then when I launched Steam it wouldn't display anything on the Steam store except a white screen that says "Navigation to this store was canceled". Same thing happened with every application I tried that uses the internet for updates etc. I even tried Windows update, and I go the same thing.

Like I said- The internet itself works fine, Browsing and downloading have no Issue.

I'm running Vista 64bit SP2, current updates installed as of a week or so ago. Other computers on my network don't have the problem, so it must be something with this machine.

I don't have any antivirus software running, and Windows firewall/security center is completely turned off.

It's probably something simple, something lingering from the setting the virus changed perhaps, but I've messed with every network setting I can think of to no avail.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

Answer:All applications are blocked from internet access, yet browsing etc works fine. Vx64

It's definitely a dns settings somewhere. It could be in your network settings itself or IE could be set (causing the system too) to use a proxy server. Check that it is not. If you need help doing that, let us know.

If you have mdnsresponder.exe in the task manager, you have the Bonjour service installed. In this case, also let us know.

I personally disable the dns client. If you'd like to do the same, type services.msc in the start menu and hit enter. You can do so here.

If you don't disable the service, then run this instead at an elevated command prompt:


Code:
ipconfig /flushdns
If it still doesn't work out and you don't have the things mentioned, Google on how to set a static ip address and use a free dns server while doing so, from OpenDns website.

My internet works fine with the wire from modem directly connected into the laptop but when the wire from modem is connected to the router, I am not able to access the internet.
I tried to make my laptop (Running windows 7 64 bit os) as the router and i can easily access net on my other devices.

I thought there is a problem with my router. So I took my router to my cousins place who has the same ISP provider. And to my surprise ,my router worked perfectly there.
I cannot understand what i can do to fix my problem.
My ISP just provides me the wire , the modem is installed somewhere out. I just get the wire from the modem.

My ISP gives dynamic ip addresses. I have to login in the site portal.beamtele.com every time i connect the wire to my ethernet port of the laptop.
I took the router to my friends place sharing the same ISP with the same package. My router worked fine there.
i brought his Belkin router to my home to check. And at my place, it didnt work.

Hey all,

I had an annoying virus the other day, and ended up removing it with MalawareByte in safe mode. But all of a sudden I noticed when I tried to connect to the iTunes store it instantly gave me an error saying "connection timed out, Check network settings", yet my internet (wired) works fine browsing with firefox etc. Then I noticed when I launched Steam it wouldn't display anything on the Steam store except a white screen that says "Navigation to this store was canceled".

It's probably something simple, but I've messed with every network setting I can think of to no avail. I haven't found an answer to this specific problem anywhere, but people with similar problems seemed to have luck with putting their Vista disc in and doing a repair. My copy of Vista is completely genuine, but it may take me all weekend to hunt for my disc.

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi,
I have a Dell Precision M60 laptop. Wireless internet was working perfectly until I had to reinstall Windows XP. After the re-installation, laptop and wired internet works perfectly but the wireless internet is not working. I have tried various things after reading other forums etc but still cannot get it to work.
I have a Netgear wireless ADSL modem router and Intel Pro wireless 2200BG network adapter.
When I click the icon on the task manager for available wireless network connections, it shows my network with full signal strength. I enter network key and press connect, but it just says not connected. I'm not too familiar with network connections. Please help.
 

Answer:Solved: Internet works when plugged in but wireless is not working after Windows XP r

1st thing i'd check here is that your security key for your wireless is correct on both ends,
even logging into your router when hardwired and removing the security key for wireless and trying to connect without security enabled would be a good start, mainly just to see if your computer will connect with no network key needed. This will determine if its the key thats causing the problem.

If however it still is not connecting, I'd start with getting the latest drivers for your Intel wireless network card, uninstalling the network adapter from device manager and installing it again with latest drivers and try again to connect

I have a linksys wireless cable router with 4 computers hooked to it. I have a cable modem that normally feeds into this router. Tonight for some reason the internet connection only seems to work when it goes directly into a computer. But I can see all the computers over the network and I can move files back and forth. I don't know if this is a comcast problem or not. I called them and they said they couldn't even take my call because of call volume. But I'm on the net now when I bypass the router. Any suggestions on how to trouble shoot this?

Thanks,
Don
 

Answer:Network works. Internet works. They just aren't working together. Help!

You should hook up the pcs to the router one by one instead of all at once, that may isolate if its one pc causing the problem at least...

thats if the net works when at least one pc is connected to the router that is

No issue in firefox browser though. Please help

Check the installed extensions in Chrome's settings and remove any you find.  If you still cannot go online, check the firewall.

when ever i start internet explorer this msg appears

" Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address."

i tryed going to other pages and it still doesn't load
and the internet connection is just fine

Answer:internet explorer not working but other browsers are working just fine

Hello and welcome to TSF

What firewall do you have?
Is this on every page or just a few? if it is just a few please name them.

Do you have these problems in any other browsers? Please try one of the below (both are free):

Hi there

It's a reliable source so I don't have any issues with this particular developer -- if you want to try and run an "Unofficial" but working XP SP4 then it's available here in this link

RyanVM.net Discussion Board :: View topic - Starting a Windows XP Service Pack 4 Project.

Test this stuff as always on a VM rather than on a REAL machine. It's working fine for me.

I have a load of old legacy hardware so I do need to keep an XP machine around for a while yet -- such hardware as a VINYL cutting machine and studio (for creating VINYL records - actually VINYL is beginning to make a bit of a come back too - so I'm glad I kept this business as a hobby !!), some Minidisc recorders - great at GIGS etc for live recordings -- quality fabulous and it's much easier to change standard batteries than the builtin stuff in modern recorders - those older recorders are extremely high quality as they were used a lot in professional recording - especially on the road. I've also got a blue print machine, an old but excellent high quality photo and negative scanner etc so my XP machine is likely to outlast BOTH windows 7 and windows 8 !!!!.

I have some more legacy hardware too and a PHOTOSHOP license -- not going in for ADOBE's Subscription model. The version of Photoshop I have on my XP VM runs just fine - I don't need the absolute latest version as I can use the Camera software to convert the RAW files to things the older version of PHOTOSHOP handles.

Cheers

Hey a few weeks ago i got a freshly installed windows 7.. works great, everything is good and clean. But last night I restarted my PC, suddenly sometimes when I right click the menu doesn't show up and the effect of the menu disappears. Ive tried searching for viruses and Trojans, a few showed up and avg removed them, but it didn't solve the problem. Also when I right-click. The CPU usage becomes like 80%. Look at the attachments below

see what i mean?

Also, don't think its vista... Its just a theme called Vista VS to make Windows 7 look more like vista

Answer:Windows 7 Works fine except for Right clicking

That is not clean...you have extensions installed, WinRAR, PowerISO, AVG....etc.
