Windows 7: Can only connect to google & a very few other sites

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

I tried to get another DSL modem but verizon was too cheap to upgrade a loyal 7year customer so I left... they begged me not to leave last minute and wanted to offer me a new modem free of charge, but it was far too late.

Windows 7 64 bit

This may not solve the problem for everyone but i have a simple solution for this that worked for me and doesn't require DLing a bunch of unfamiliar programs. Simple explanation is most sites still use IPv4. Sites like Google Youtube Facebook and many other very popular sites have already started using IPv6. If you find that you can connect to sites like these and no other sites you probably have a problem with your IPv4 settings. I'm using Win7 so I'll leave instructions for that but I'm sure you can figure out the steps on other versions.


2)Once on NETWORK AND SHARING CENTER page click on CHANGE ADAPTER SETTINGS (toward top left portion of page)

3)Find the connection you use on the NETWORK CONNECTIONS page (<-the page that pops up) RIGHT CLICK on your connection and choose PROPERTIES.

4)In the popup window on the NETWORKING tab you will see a list of checked boxes with script next to them. Find the one labeled INTERNET PROTOCOL VERSION 4 (TCP/IPv4)

5)Highlight the text (single left click) and click the PROPERTIES button (middle right on page)

6)On the PROPERTIES page under the GENERAL tab you will want to make sure the bubbles next to OBTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY and OBTAIN DNS SERVER ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY are both checked. (the top bubble for ip and top bubble for dns should both have a dot)

7)Push OK/APPLY on all windows as you back out of these options and repeat these steps for all connections on the NETWORK CONNECTIONS page.

8)Restart computer/router/browser as necessary but this should fix the problem instantly.
