I have 4 computers (2 laptop & 2 Desktop) the 2 desktops are hard wired to the internet, laptops wi-fi, anyway the one desktop & 2 lappys I can browse to my hearts content, but alas the other puta informs me that I am connected, but not one web page loads, all puta's browse with Firefox, O/S= 2 with WinXP & 2 with Vista, it's the WinXP computer giving me grief, also I've noticed on that machine I have no logo for IE7 (wheres that gone), would a WinXp repair solve my problem, all input gratefully received. Off to work now. [Angry]

For the desktop PC that's connected by ethernet cable but unable to get online, open a Command Prompt window ("Start > Run", type CMD and click OK) then, at the prompt, type...

[b]ipconfig /all[/b]

...and press Enter. This will show details of all network adapters installed in the PC. Right click in the Command Prompt window, "Select All" and press Enter to copy the details to the clipboard. Paste the details into a forum reply here.

As you are unable to paste the details directly from the computer, because it cannot get online, paste them instead into a blank "Notepad" file, transfer the file to a working PC and copy/paste the details from there.

[b]ipconfig /all[/b]

That should read...

IPCONFIG /All

Ignore the [b] and [/b] which, in another forum, applies a 'bold' emphasis to the text.

My problem, seems to have gone away, apparently it was a DNS problem, solved by this.
I have always got round DNS problems by using "open DNS".

In the Network connections, select your local area network adapter, select properties and TCPIP. Under IP address, on the DNS Servers tab enter

208.67.222.222 and
208.67.220.220

This will mean the affected PC will go to those servers to resolve domain names, and not try to get the settings from the router. Worth ago anyhow, worked for me, thanks to all those for helping out will now tick.

It appears that you have TCP/IP version "6" installed, which is the reason for the hexadecimal IP addresses and the "Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface:" entries.

As this protocol is not yet in use (it's the next generation of TCP/IP, necessary because version "4" addresses are running out), you should uninstall it. Go to "Start > Run" type...

ipv6 uninstall

...and press Enter. Then post another IPCONFIG /ALL listing. At the moment you appear not to have a DNS Server address using TCP/IPv4.

Hi - thanks for reply

Done what you said and here is new listing :

Hi again

Ive just noticed that this topic has been marked as resolved !!

Can you confirm that you are still looking at my problem or should I start a new thread ??

Thanks

  mgmcc 16:07 11 Mar 09

You should start your own thread. If that's the full listing from IPCONFIG /ALL then the entry for "DNS Server addresses" is missing.

  tullie 16:12 11 Mar 09

Maybe Angus has ticked it in disgust at hijacking his thread,he could be getting all your replys also.

Ok thanks - will start a new thread with the new listing above.


tullie

thanks for the observation - who knows ??
