Windows 7: Can connect but can't browse

Can connect but can't browse

Hi all,

I recently installed the Windows 7 RC on my HP laptop.
To make story short, I connect the internet through a Thomson Modem connected to a TP-LInk Wireless router, I can connect the router and can see my local network.

I have the following problems:
1. I can't connect my router from the laptop (typing 192.168.1.1 in any browser yields nothing at all).
2. I can excess internet (pinging Google for instance), but I can't reach any site using any of my installed browsers (IE, Firefox, or Chrome).

I tried reinstalling chrome, because this all seems to be browers problems, but that didn't help either.

Thanks,
Yishke

+1, it could also be that the router need resetting. This has helped many times when connection to hardware is fine but internet seems iffy

Thanks.

I done almost all the instructions in your guide before I posted the question, but didn't tried the safe-mode.
I can browse the net in safe-mode, so I assume that something is blocking me in the regular mode, but I don't know what (I turned off both the fire-wall and AVG and it didn't help).

Any way, now I have a lead, so thank you very much,

Have you done a soft reset of the router?

By soft reset I mean take out the power adapter. wait ten seconds and put it back in. Then the thing will reboot and you'll have to wait a few minutes.

Note:
Never do hard reset. (little pin on the back with pencil) because that will delete all your settings, including provider login and pw.

I note this distinction, because I see a lot of people suggesting resetting the router, but that can easily be missunderstood.

Hi Ken,

I'm sorry, but i didn't understand you.

squonksc, I actually done both resets and the hard-reset actually doesn't work on my router (after your warning I'm happy it didn't ).

No problem. welcome to sevenforums

I was refering to your system specifications. you could just tell us, or you could put them in your user control panale (user CP). It just makes diagnosing your hware and OS easier.

And while you at it, could you go to command prompt and do a IPCONFIG/ALL and post it here?


PS, and while you do that, you might just for the fun of it do IPCONFIG/flushdns.

And see if you browser works now?
