Can´t ping, can´t browse, nothing!

Q: Can´t ping, can´t browse, nothing!

Hi everyone, I have this weird problem, and it seems it happens a lot on vista users and I have seen it several times on forums and yet looks like nobody has a final solution. All started almost since I have my computer, also noted it was caused after I woke up the machine from sleep mode, the browser just kept saying "page not found" or "request timed", but I was able to temporally solve the problem by reseting the modem or disconnecting from internet in my laptop then waiting 3 minutes and connect again, however always after some time (15-5 minutes) I cant browse, ping, nothing! but somehow Im still connect to the internet, torrents and downloads usually dont get affected by this.

But one day after I installed a driver software for my Nvidia video card, and it fixed all! still dont know how. Then I made the mistake of sending the computer to sleep, so the curse returned. Eventually I found about "netsh winsock reset" command, worked like magic, until the day the electricity in my house went off for a second, when I restarted guess what? the freaking problem was back. Tried a bunch netshell commands, including resetting the TCP/IP settings, but got nothing, I gave up, and after a few days, I dont know how my internet issue was solved again. Little did I know the electricity was going to fail again, and so my internet.

So here I am, I already tried, "netsh" commands, reinstalling my wireless driver software, disabling antivirus and firewall, and also changed some power settings and used system restore and still nothing possitive happens, Im just how I started

However I think there is some kind of permission issue, even when I execute command promt in elevated mode the netsh int ip reset command keeps saying

Reseting Echo Request, failed.
Access is denied.

Reseting Global, OK!
Reseting Interface, OK!
A reboot is required to complete this action.

Very very odd and hope there is someone smart who can solve this thanks in advance

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hey, I was using my mobile hotspot to connect to the internet on my windows 10 samsung laptop, when out of no where it just stopped working, like I was in the middle of watching netflix and then the show just randomly stopped. It says I am still connected to the internet but when I try to browse on any website it says ?This site can not be reached? Ive done the diagnostics they say its nothing wrong, checked the LAN settings, nothing?s working can someone help please?
 

A:Can’t browse

Does your mobile hotspot account have a certain MB or GB data limit?

As long your Samsung laptop is close to and connected to your mobile hotspot it is going to think that everything is great. It has no idea if your hotspot is actually connected to the internet or not.

Hello, i was hoping someone could help me, this is mi situation.

i have two laptops, each one with wireless nic's, they connect to my d-link wireless router which is connected to the adsl modem,

with one of the laptops i can acces the internet just fine no problem here, the other one connects to the router just fine, but i just can't surf, i can ping the gateway, i can ping the other laptop, i can even ping sites like yahoo.com but only if i ping using the ip address it doesnt work with the domain name.

If i try to surf in explorer or netscape it just doesnt work, not even with the ip address instead of the domain name. i just found strange that i can ping all this sites but can't surf.

i have tried with dhcp and with static ip. the two laptops have the exactly same configuration so i was wondering what could be wrong.

one little detail, when using dhcp the laptop that doesnt surf wont renew ip addres. says there was a problem when trying to renew.

o yeah one more thing, i am using "win xp home" in the laptop that doesnt surf and "win xp pro" in the one that does. both have all updates from microsoft installed. and both have been checked for viruses.

thankx verry much! hope someone could help me!!

A:can ping, can´t surf!

if you have any password in Internet Explorer, try resetting it. This can (for some reason) stop all internet access. Search for Internet Explorer password override or something like that. You have to edit the registry. This may not work. However, if the previous didn't, try downloading Opera or another browser and see if that works. Good luck

I have a Canon Pixma MG7730 which was connected wirelessly to my NEC laptop (running Windows 10). It worked fine for a year but two weeks ago, it stopped working. I?ve tried turning the printer, router and laptop off and restarting but it didn?t help. Once I could get the printer to respond by scanning from the printer operations panel, but now it can?t find my computer that way either.

After lots of googling, I uninstalled the printer drivers and tried to reinstall using the disc but the computer can?t find the printer so I can?t get past the first stage.

Next I tried checking in the printer what IP address it is using. When I ping that, the request times out.

I?m afraid I don?t know what to do next, short of buying a new printer.

Does anyone know what to do in this situation?

if you print out the network settings - check its on the correct wifi name

Cant see other PC on Network

I have a small 2 PC workgroup running XP Professional (SP2) on Sony VAIO laptops and connecting via a Netgear WPN 824 wireless router.
Both PCs can connect to the internet and print via a Netgear WGPS 606 wireless print server. Windows Firewall is disabled. I have Norton Internet Security 2005 installed and running. . I have allowed in Personal Firewall the range 192.168.1.1/105 in both PCs.

Welcome to the forum and thank you for posting the complete error message. That will probably save a lot of time.

From a JohnWill post:

Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

Download the following and install it

Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

Hello everyone!
Im using a Dell Inspiron 5447:Intel I7 4510U 2.0GHz, 8.0 GB ram, 1 TB HD, Win 8.1 (64bit), 2GB AMD Radeon R7 M265.
I have all the updates available for Win 8.1, Ive done everything it says in the Dell support web page to get Win 10 , Ive checked everything in the (Get Win 10) in Microsoft support web page, and still have nothing. When I open in my laptop the SupportAssit app, and open get support for my Dell Inspiron 5447 and it send me to the webpage, and in the diagnosis site it says: Update to Win 10 is avaliable for your computer, learn more here. I click there and do everything it says, and still nothing.
Ive checked if my dell inspiron 5447 does not support win10, but in every web page ive checked it says that my laptop can run win10.
What can i do to get Win10 or any other solutions?
Thank you very much!

A:Can´t upgrade to Win 10, why?

Lot's of possible reasons. Bypass the aggravation and do it yourself. Search on Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, download the 64 bit ISO, and do the installation. Have done it on four machines from 3  to 10 years old with minimal problems. My daughter's one year old Inspiron 17 did receive the official download and also installed OK.

I am trying to download drivers and patches for my hardware and games, using Internet Explorer. When I click on a link, the download starts and I see the progress bar, but it doesnt go anywhere, it just sits there like its working, or trying to, but no (or very little) transferring takes place. Some things I can never download (like DirectX 8 or Windows Update (which always downloads to 202 Kb then stops at that point) from Microsofts site), and some things I can download about half the time (on the Viewsonic drivers page I can usually download most of the drivers, but never the one I need).

Mine is a one-week-old computer, with fresh Windows ME. I have my hard drive from my old computer attached also (new HD is C, old one is E), and it has Windows 95, Internet Explorer, etc. on it. Could the old registry or something be interfering somehow?

Hi,
I have a 200G HD and I created an 80g partition with PM8.
Since I switched from Intel to AMD, I had to install windows again so I installed WindowsXP in the new 80g partition and copied all my info into this partition. I did this, so that I could format the 120g partition to delete the "old" WindowsXP and have more space.
When I tried to format the 120g partition I had to set the 80g partition as active. I did so, and restarted the computer since PM8 asked me to do it to be able to complete the two tasks: set the 80g partition as active and format the other one.
PM8 does the job (I guess, I never saw windows again after I restarted).
When the computer tries to restart I get the error message "missing NTLDR".
I can't start windows, but I say, "hey, I got an empty 120g partition to install WindowsXP again and recover my data".
I insert the Windows CD, format the 120g partition, start installation and when the computer reboots to run Windows for the first time and insert CD key, etc, my computer freezes after the message "Press any key to boot from CD..." appears.

This is as clear as I can explain this. I hope you guys understand my problem since I find pretty unreasonable not to be able to install windows on a fresh Partition.

Things that may help:

I would remove the 60 gb for now it just confuses your setup steps
if you don't have valuable data delete the whol 200 gb drive and use xp to partition and format
if want to save
remove the 200gb drive delete and reformat the 60 load xp on it
try see if xp will load on smaller drive
once you have xp on smaller drive you may be able to fix boot.ini file
make sure if ide the 60 is master set make sure the bios is set for this
if sata use channel 1
then when adding the 200 gb you should be able to copy files to 60 gb
sometimes a few missed steps and I have to add another 4 or five steps to fix
any time I am setup new drive I remove all other drives

Your are mixing up file-types. MP3 files are NOT Audio files.

Audio files are what are on off-the-shelf music CDs. These DO NOT have the info MP3 files do.

MP3 files are a different format.

You have these choices:Convert MP3 files to Audio files
If your music player (home, car radio, etc) can play MP3, no conversion required, just burn to CD (data burn)

got a new Lenovo Yoga 720 with Win 10, was doing all the updates. I think the Intel Management Engine firmware update had a failure. It?s not listed in device manager and I can?t manually or automatically install a driver or see it in device manager. If I set intel PTT to disabled in the BIOS, I can boot and also see TPM in device manager with code 10, but can?t update the driver. I updated the bios, downgraded, updated again. No change in status with any version. I can toggle boot on and off with the PTT setting.  should I rma it? I?ve run out of ideas. Hoping you experts can help.

Yesterday afternoon I suddenly lost all access to my own website from my home WiFi. I tried on the Mac, on my phone, iPad and laptop using my WiFi and none of them would connect to the website front or back of house, nor webmail.

I can access any other website (including age restricted ones like the lottery) on any of these devices. Connects to YouTube, google, eBay etc no problem.

I cleared all the web data and cache etc on the Mac in case it was that and reset my router to get a new IP address and nothing. Still no access using home broadband.

I know the site is working because if I switch off my WiFi and use a 4g hotspot I can connect to front and back of house and emails no problem. My customers can all access it too.

It?s as if the site has blocked my WiFi completely.

I?ve called EE who provide my broadband and they are perplexed. They say no sites are blocked there.
Any ideas?

Hi,

I was going to install Win 10 but it was giving me an error about GPT partition. I had a friend change my HDD of 1TB to GPT. I decided to buy a SDD but when I try to use my HDD of 1TB is not working.

I tried to clean from the Diskpart cmd, it can clean it but if I writeconvert to MBR says ''diskpart has encountered an error system cannot find the file specified''.

The disk says it has 0 bytes so I can not make a partition and from the disk management I can't do anything.
''The specified disk is not convertible because the size is less than the minimum size required''

Normally you try to create the volume but it doesnt give me the option. I tried AEOMI but I think it made it worse.

I really dont know what to do. HALP

Pictures are in spanish but are the same errors.

Hi,

HELP!

I?ve been having a strange problem I cannot seem to solve.

My computer all of a sudden last week stopped displaying any webpages/connecting to the internet. It says it is connected (signal strenght/connection= excellent) but it won?t actually connect. Not to IE (7), but not to anything else either. The problem is both for the wireless as well as through the cabel connection.

I?m sure the problem must be the computer and not the internet though, because on my friend?s computer it works fine. I have tried to put all the settings the same as on his (gateway, dns, network mask).

I have already tried to reboot the computer.

I have tried to renew/reset the IP-address numerous times, but am not sure this is working right. I have manually tried to set it (same as the computer that does connect, except for the last two digits).
But when I do it through Run it will let me release the IP-address, however when i try to renew it tells me

?An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection: An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket.?

I have also tried to reset WinSock.

It will not ping either, I tried yahoo.com and 66.218.71.198 - it tells me Destination host is unreachable.


The last windows diagnostics I have are as followed;



Last diagnostic run time: 11/20/09 17:18:55 WinSock Diagnostic

Hi There,

I just wanna say thanks a lot in advance first.

Apparently I just got infected with something Panda Anvirus calls Virtumonde.C. I?ve run a bunch of anti-spyware programs that seem to remove it but they don?t. I assume that they don?t remove it properly or they don?t identify every strain of the adware.

Here is my Hijack log. I really hope you can help me.

A:Help! Can’t uninstall Sophos!! Please help!

Try uninstalling in safemode.

BTW why are you paying for an antivirus when there's good free ones like Avast?
