Windows 7: PC connects to wireless network, but web pages just won't load...

PC connects to wireless network, but web pages just won't load...

Hello,

I have a desktop PC with Windows 7 and an asus PCI-G31 wireless network adapter. The PC can connect to my wireless network but web pages will not load.

In the very same room, I have a laptop with Windows Vista and Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN adapter; and it connects to my wireless network fine.

I have updated the driver on the asus adapter and I have restarted the router many times, but this did not help. My router is a 2wire gateway 2701HGV-W

If someone could help me with this it would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

LuckyGRILLS

If the wireless adapter on desktop can detect means its all rite, fine.... Then the problem should be related to os or firewall mis configuration... Check ur firewall and try altering the permissions for accessing internet.. And another problem can be is may be ur desktop ip address is being tracked and the network packets are captured by some one else by sniffing, to confirm that ur network is not being hacked try installing "antisniff" this can detect sniffers who are active in ur network, also run a full virus scan to search for some responsible trojan horse.....

I have run a scan with malwarebytes anti-malware (and deleted the one malware found).

I have just the standard windows firewall on.

And my browser is Opera, though the problem is with all browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox)

The problem is still there even when the firewall is turned off.

I will try installing an antisniff and also running a full virus scan and then report back.

Lets try flushing DNS cache and renewing your IP.

Flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file ...
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file to run it as Administrator.

Your computer will reboot itself. It may required a second reboot if the problem isn't fixed.

Probably just a messed up IP stack.

The work you did with the drivers and the router narrowed it down pretty well for me.

After days of struggling to get my laptop to run properly this was the solution.

It show I was connected to my wireless router but the browsers wouldn't load anything and my NetGearGenie.exe kept crashing on start up. I ran this batch file, my computer restarted and my computer popped up with a firewall allowing the exe now my internet works.
