Something upstream is blocking access there according to the network map but it's hard to say what it might be, firewall, A/V something.

alright this is getting weird, windows says that the DNS server isn't responding, and if that was the case I wouldn't be online. Verified by pinging it.

So you are online even though you shouldn't be it seems? This is very stange, I can't help but to think that a third party program is involved here somehow... Something is partially blocking the connection but I can't say what.

K safe mode /w networking and problem still exists. So we can rule out a 3rd party app, unless it's a virus, which I really doubt. Here is a link to some one having a similar problem.

Yes the problem looks similar. He's having him check a network setting in services to make sure it's enabled. Have you tried unplugging your other network interfaces yet? Reinstalling the network driver in Device Manager may have an effect.

You might want to look here in Device Manage with "show hidden devices" enabled. A screen shot of this might be helpful. That "Unknown Device" on the map seems to be where the problem is but that looks upstream of you.

Yea, I'll reinstall my wireless nic and dump all of the "hidden" 6to4 tunnel connections and see if it works out. Worth a shot !

Yes those extra toredo tunnels don't help either, just had one of those last night and it was caused by the Eset firewall. Windows may be confused with all those extra connections also.
