Windows 7: Connected to internet but cant browse

17 Feb 2014   #31

Windows Ultimate x64
Same symptoms and how I got my working

I had the same problem except my browsers were Firefox and IE. My setup is wired Ethernet to Lynksys router to Motorola cable modem to Comcast, OS is Windows 7 ultimate x64. I tried all the above suggestions but nothing works. My setup finally worked when I noticed that my virus program is no longer running whenever I do the reboot so I manually launch it and the browser can now access the internet. The antivirus program I am using is Norton Security Suite.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64

Just had the same problem. All browsers did not want to load up on my desktop pc while laptop and mobile were working with no problems. Was able to ping and even use remote desktop for my work but loading the page, updates or skype or any other app was just not getting through even after i disabled all firewalls and even removed the AV.
did what was suggested above:
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset reset.log

rebooted the PC and yeeees it worked.

i have had an IT guy from my work logged in and having a look but he was bafled ..

THANKS A LOT from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina :)
