Windows 7: Connected to internet but cant browse

Connected to internet but cant browse

Hello, I am running an Asus notebook, model UX50V with Windows 7.

Last night restarted my computer because skype was not working properly, and when it started up again, it would connect to the internet, but not let me browse on Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. Skype will not connect, and my windows updates will not either.

I brought it to Best buy to have them look at it, they could not figure it out, and wanted to charge me lots of money to do a deeper diagnostics test on it. Well, I'm poor with no job. so i cant afford that.

I tried running a system restore, but i had never set that up. so i cant restore it to a previous date..

i also tried restarting the network server things with the command prompt..

I look around a lot online, but whatever solutions were posted in the forums, none of the simpler ones i have found helped me.

I really would not like to have to wipe the hard drive and boot it from scratch with the OS.

Anyone have any advice???

Ho waeough and welcome to SF.
There are quite a few things we could try before we start wiping any hard drives
Unplug your router from power for at least 60 seconds then plug it back in, let it go through the init cycles and when all necessary lights are on, connect the computer and start it up.
see if that helps if not, post a snip of the command line after executing ipconfig /all

start>search>type cmd>type ipconfig /all
Use built in snipping tool (type snipping in search) to take a snapshot of results, and upload it to us using the attachment icon (shaped like a paperclip) in the reply forms

That looks OK so far.
I take it, power cycling the router didn't change the situation ?

I had a similar problem with my network card but I found a fix.

Go to Device Manager, find your Network Card, and right click Properties. Go to Advanced, Speed and Duplex, and force it to run at 10 Mbps Full Duplex. Let me know if that helps.
