Windows 7: Dell Studio sees the network but won't access internet - small biz ser

Dell Studio sees the network but won't access internet - small biz ser

I used to be able to access the internet on this computer - on a small business server 2003 - on the Network Sharing center, it shows that I am connected to the network (doesn't matter if I'm on wireless or wired same issue) it shows an x on the display for internet. I checked the gateway and it is the same for the other computers that are on the internet. No problems anywhere else connecting to internet. I don't have any spyware/viruses. I can access files on the server and other pcs no problem - just won't let me on the internet. I read somewhere that it could possibly be SP1?

Welcome to SF,

You may try adding one of your ISP's DNS Forwarders (open up DNS Manager, locate the SBS Server>Properties>Forwarders Tab) to the LAN setting of the SBS 2003 Server as a alternate DNS Server. See if you can browse after.

Do you have a Firewall or Security Software installed in this Server?
