Windows 7: Internet browsing 'disabled' even with an internet connection.

26 Jan 2013   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
 
 
Internet browsing 'disabled' even with an internet connection.

Just today, I encountered a weird bug.

I have a proper internet connection, but suddenly, all my internet browsers will fail to load any webpage.

Whenever I click on any link or type into the search bar, nothing happens.

This occurs for all browsers. ( Firefox, Chrome, IE )

I tried the ping command using cmd, it worked. That adds on to the mystery..

If resetting the router doesn't work then try running the following two commands in bold, type or copy paste the commands one at a time into an elevated command prompt, hit enter after each one then reboot your machine.

netsh winsock reset catalog (reset winsock entries)

netsh int ip reset reset.log hit (reset TCP/IP stack)
