Preferred Solution: Website connection

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands one at a time, followed by the Enter key:

Do NOT include the <> either, they're just to identify the values for substitution.

I been getting timed connection error on this website http://www.fordfullsize.com/forum/index.php. It doesn't happen all the time but it seems to happen the longer I stay on the site.
It doesn't happen on any other site and the site admin doesnt know why I'm the only one experiencing this issue. Here a link to a topic I started on this issue over.

for some time now i have been unable to connect to the hotmail website with either IE or outlook on my pc, also msn messenger won't connect at all.

i also can't get into a few websites unless i drop the "www" from the address.

and my internet favorites menu on the start menu has been redirected to the print spooler, WTF? guessing its a registry error.
i have used registry mechanic but it doesn't find any errors, maybe it caused the change?
I have got all the patches available for IE and have tried other browsers with no luck.

I'm comfortable with editing the registry manualy if someone tells me what needs to be changed.

Hey everyone, so I need some major help here and so far no one has been able to find out the problem. Let's hope it ends here!

Ok, so...last week I tried logging on the site www.warpedtour.battleofthebands.com to update my bands profile in this years contest. I had been visiting the site quite often with no problems. All of a sudden when I tried to visit the page, it gave me the message, "The connection has timed out" blah blah etc. I was using firefox. So I tried to use IE only to receive the same message. No problems with other websites, so I figured the site was just down for maintanence or something. I was wrong, no one else had problems accessing the site at all. I emailed the admin email they have on the page. No response. I contacted firefox live support, he led me through pinging the website (which was fine), and tracert (also fine), had me put in which is the address, same message, he didn't know what the problem was, said it was prolly my ISP. I contacted my isp right away, he led me through the same steps and some new ones. Made sure I dont have any firewall or antivirus on blocking it, which I dont. I did a system restore, reinstalled firefox, same thing. Same problem. No one has been able to help and everyone is completely baffled. Any suggestions or help?

I wanted to connect to a site and tried to do it through firefox on three different computers here at home and firefox came back saying it couldn't find it. Then I went into my paid AOL account and through AOL and its software I able to get onto the site. I then entered my user name and password to get into the member section of the site and now AOL is returning a page saying that the address could not be found. I over to the library and used their computer with internet explorer and had no problem getting into the main site and the members section. I have been reading the previous thread between Nogmor and Phantom101 and see that there are alot of things to look at in terms of problem solving. Does anyone see a clue as to why I can access this site one way and not another and once in the site still not get into the rest of the site? I am not that tech savvy but a friend had me refresh the DNS resolver cache and things did not improve. I have no problems with any other sites. Any help would be greatly appreciated as this site is the only site I can use for a specific project. Thanks, Sledafor

It might make it a lot easier for us to work on the problem if you told us the URL of the web site.

I am unable to connect to a website from my computer. The site is pitchforkmedia.com, and I know it is up because I can get to it for any other computer but mine. In fact, i was able to access it fine from my computer until about 3 months ago. Ive tried IE, Firefox and Netscape all with the same result. I just want to know what happened to prevent me from going to this one site. Everything else works fine. Thanks

Computer: http://www.gateway.com/retail/gt5637e.php

This is just, really...odd. I got a brand new computer yesterday, and I've gone through the basics for me. Getting my Firefox, my AIM, MSN, yahoo. Started checking my favorite websites, and when I came to outwar, it gave me an error on Firefox, and has since.

The connection has timed out
The server at ******** com is taking too long to respond.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Before I go further. RampidGaming. com(The business site to Outwar), and the forums at forums.outwar, both work. None of the gave servers, or www. itself, do.

I've tried shutting off all spyware/virus protection, and firewalls, and still haven't been able to connect.

To confuse me even more, when I attempt this in Internet Explorer, , decides to turn itself into a google image search instead of even attempting to go to the web page. Trying to go to the site through google ends with a similar error message to the above.

I've run CCLeaner, and that didn't make any difference either.

I try to access the website through a proxy website, and I'm able to get to the website. Two days ago I could get to the website easily from my old XP computer.

A social network website I frequented for years will not come up for me anymore. I use IE8. Last week the site was aggressively attacked so it went offline for repair and protection upgrades. After about a week it came back on line, but I still get the standard "IE cannot display the webpage" w/the 'Diagnose Connection Problems' button that I would get when the site was down. I contacted the site's admin and he said all looks fine on his end. I contacted other members and they can get to it as well. I contacted my ISP and they declare they are not blocking the site. They made the standard suggestions - clear cookies, turn off firewall, try another browser, power-down/up modem & router, release/renew ipconfig, etc. Hmmmm, .... well, a little research educated me about free web proxy addresses. So I grabbed a random US-based address/port and went to tools>options>connection>LAN Settings and put in the numbers. Lo & behold, I can bring that website up. I don't know why this works but do want to know how can I get things back to normal?

I'm running Chrome (latest version) on Windows 7 x64, and am experiencing a frequent problem working with my bank's https website - to get logged on and go through 2 or 3 pages can take 10 minutes or more, or worse still, I get timed out. I've tried other browsers - IE and Firefox with similar results. My wife uses the same PC and has had similar problems with other bank websites. We have no problems using other websites. I think I've established that it is NOT the bank website that's the problem as to go through exactly the same process on my Android tablet (same network & router) takes just a matter of seconds.

I have DSL/Cable connection with a Linksys router. I usually have no problem with any computer in my home however last night a friend had issues with one website. He was able to do all else he tried except for this 1 website. On 2 of my personal laptops we were able to visit the website he was attempting to connect to but he was unable to. This same website he is able to visit when connecting at his home via the same type connection (DSL/Cable and a wireless router).

What can we tweak to make it possible for this 1 computer to link to a particular website? Any and all help is appreciated.

I am unable to access certain websites such as www.gmail.com and www.google.com. I have assured that my computer's date and time are correct.  I am regularly receiving an "SSL Error" message which states:

Something is currently interfering with your secure connection to mail.google.com.  Try to reload this page in a few minutes or after switching to a new network. If you have recently connected to a new Wi-Fi network, finish logging in before reloading.  
If you were to visit mail.google.com right now, you might share private information with an attacker. To protect your privacy, Chrome will not load the page until it can establish a secure connection to the real mail.google.com.

mail.google.com normally uses encryption (SSL) to protect your information. When Chrome tried to connect to mail.google.com this time, mail.google.com returned unusual and incorrect credentials. Either an attacker is trying to pretend to be mail.google.com, or a Wi-Fi login screen has interrupted the connection.

I'm having problems fully connecting to some sites such as youtube and skysports.com, i'l use youtube as the example.

The main page of the site loads ok, but when I try to view a video, my browser only loads the top banner of the page, and nothing else appears on the screen, I just recently updated my security programs as they were 6 months out-of-date from my internet connection being cut off.

I've had this problem before, but I have forgotten how I fixed it, so any help reminding me would be welcome. I think when I updated my programs, it may have re-activated the setting that caused this problem the first time.

I use ZoneAlarm Pro as a firewall, SpySweeper spyware protection, BitDefender9 Anti-virus, and I use Firefox as a browser.

So recently, don't know exactly when it started, but when I attempt to go to Comcast's Smartzone to check my e-mail through their web based system I constantly get a connection timeout. The thing is every time it attempts to contact login.comcast.net I get the timeout and then my connection dies, from my PC (XP sp3) to my wireless router, connection still shows active but it will not transmit data. I then have to disconnect or use windows "repair" connection to get my internet connection back. I've tried to ping login.comcast.net and all comes back well. Now If I try another computer, either wired to the router or wireless, I have no problems connecting. So I've isolated it just to this PC. I've used Norton, IObit Security 360, Spybot, Ad-Aware and all come up clean. Any ideas?

Hello there guys.

I'm basically the "new IT guy" in my workplace, the only one, and one of my users is having a problem with a website we use. This is my first job since leaving my studies, so would like to get some good pointers before I go searching for a solution.

The user can login to the website fine, but for some reason loses her connection to the site halfway through placing and/or viewing orders.

*She does not lose connection to any other websites, just the one in question.
*Here internet connection is working as intended all other times, for all other sites.
*I used ping/tracert to said website, both fine.
*This problem only originates from this one machine.

* Is this a problem my end or the website's?
* Would clearing her IE temp files + Cookies help?
* Would clearing down the users cache, including the DNS Resolver
cache, help?
This is a hard one to track down (well for my limited actual experience!), as it only happens with this site intermittently - all other internet, networking connectivity is fine.

Thank you very much indeed.

Hi I am new here and have a real issue. I've tried different browsers, (different websites all loading with no problem) different computers and the website and webmail for the small company I work for has not loaded since yesterday afternoon. Gets a time out connection. As you can imagine a company without email and a website is a bit of an urgent matter. And you may have guessed i am not a computer techy and sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but is this an issue with our server?

You should check the DNS and make sure the domain is not expired.  If those look ok, then check the server you are using.

Okay, after fighting with this for the last two weeks, I give up. I three computers losing connectivity at seemingly random times. Sometimes it's just one, sometimes all of them, and it happens several times a day with the one I use most. Networking troubleshooter gives me the error in the thread title.

All three are wireless. (I know it's not ideal for testing, but I live in the country and have limited internet options, so there is no way to test a wired connection.)

My phone can connect fine, and never has any problems with the wi-fi.

Even when a pc has trouble connecting, I can still ping sites from both ip and site names. I can also still see the other pcs in the network and share files between them (even if one is offline, and the other can connect)

I'll answer anything else I can. I'm usually pretty decent with everything non-networking. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I have cleared all my cookies, deleted all the history, turned off the firewall, everything I can think of. I don't know why it won't load.

If I try to spend any amount of time browsing deviantART(.com), my connection will drop for usually no more than a minute or two. Although I lose all connectivity for that time, it appears to only be triggered when using Mozilla. Having said that, I'm not particularly enthusiastic at the idea of switching browsers altogether. I've never had this problem with this PC for the past two years I've had it; I only noticed it after my recent move-in to a new apartment. What is causing this, and how can I fix it without dropping Firefox in favor of another browser?

If you need any further information from me, let me know. Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Particular website temporarily kills my Internet connection

Read other 11 answers

This is by far the most frustrating issue I have come across regarding network connectivity.
Finding people with these symptoms in the past showed 20-page forum posts (on other sites) asking the poster to do all sorts of long, confusing, complicated tasks and and sharing dozens of logs all just to fizzle out before an answer is made, or an answer being found off-post ("oh, never mind guys, fixed!") without sharing what helped.

With that, I'm hoping it's not quite as complicated as all that, or that you all might have other ideas.

So, with that said, let me begin:

So I boot up my computer, and have an internet connection. Yippee! It's a wireless connection. We use a separate modem and router. my connection to the access point is quite fine, usually 4 - 5 bars.
So... I go to load up a website. Google.com! Sure. And the home page to that loads up quite fine. From here on though, anything goes.
Load up some search results? Usually that works out. Let's click one. Oh.. oh okay...
Depending on the website, that's where it often dies. Won't load up the website. Won't load up Google anymore either. Or anything.
Sometimes, my connection will get that yellow triangle telling me I have No Internet Connection, but most often it shows that I'm connected to the internet just fine. (that lying little...)

When it does show the yellow icon, I open up the Network and Sharing screen and click that red X from my network to the grey Internet... Read more

I connect to the internet through a Comcast broadband cable connection. Several days ago I discovered that I could not access certain websites. Specifically: cnn.com, paytrust.com, hertzenwerke.com (these are sites I had recently visited). In trying to connect these sites time out and I get the ?cannot find server? error message.

I confirmed that these are working sites from my computer at work. There may be other affected sites that I am unaware of at this time, but I appears that all other sites work fine.

Internet connection speed is fine ? tested 1.8 mb.

I experience this problem using both Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.

I can connect to these sites using the anonymizer.com website.

I do not have any blocking software or settings in either of my browsers.

I have tried shutting down my firewall, but this has had no affect.

A virus scan (Trend Micro, Symantec and Panda) shows nothing.

An ad ware scan (Ad-aware, Spy Sweeper and Microsoft Antispyware) shows nothing.

Does anyone have any ideas?

If you don't use it anymore, make sure to uninstall it (if it's still there) in the Add/Remove Panel. Then delete the Symantec folder.

Hi, long time lurker, first time poster..
A couple weeks ago my father-in-law asked me to have a look at his new laptop as the internet was almost unusable, where his old one, on the same wireless point was still fast..
I scanned it with malwarebytes, adwcleaner and eset online scanner, they all found various items and deleted them and his internet was back to fast again..
Was over there again today and apparently in the last few days its gone bad again.. intermittently sites like craigslist or cnn can take 2, 3, 4 minutes to load on this computer.. where his old laptop, on the same access point, is still fast..
I figure he's got himself reinfected again.. or I didnt do enough before to dig it out.. so any help you can provide is appreciated..
Ive been through the 'before you post' checklist and have tried to run DDS.. apparently it wont run on Windows 8.1 however..
What scans can I provide to get us started please?

Story Time - Let's start at the beginning.
First, I share my pc with a family member who does questionable things browsing the internet, That is sorted out.

Late night 9-5-2012 I log off my computer. I go to bed.
Noon time 9-6-2012 I walk to my computer to find some "live platinum" fake antivirus program installed. It sits on my taskbar and desktop, mocking me, telling me everything is infected and effectively/efficiently locked my computer down. Rebooted, That cleared my error messages and I was able to restore to 9-5-2012 Making said false antivirus program disappear. Lingering files persist. No amount of antivirus or antimalware program will help. From noon 9-6-2012 to midnight the same day, I was unable to remove this bugger off my computer. I keep being redirected randomly, to 2 websites. The first, will be a totally randomly picked website, the 2nd(and destination for the redirection), is always the exact same one.

I have tried multiple various online self-help guides and MANY multiple anti-virus/anti-malware programs,only to fail. I am still being redirected. If you can help, please let me know I have unlimited patience and am benevolent but I just refuse to go at this alone anymore.

Background: 2 days ago I updated from my very old dated modem to the newer 2wire model from my ISP. Everything appeared to go fine and operate correctly with one exception...

As soon as I go to blogtv.com (using firefox) and as soon as I try to load any live stream my internet connection drops and shows network cable unplugged under the network connections tab. About 20 seconds or so later it will reconnect to the net but as soon as blogtv reloads same old problem.

If I do this on IE the page sometimes load, sometimes not but does not kill my connection.

Any ideas and/or help would be much appreciated as this kinda thing isn't my strong suit.

Hi, I am running Windows 8, and I have WEBROOT as an anti-Virus program. I usually use Google Chrome for all my needs, but for the last 4 weeks or so every single time I log on I have to reload because the page either does not load fully, or little squares show up in the middle of the screen. I have Yahoo as my default and 8 times out of 10, when I first sign on, I have to reload the page, and then every website after that the same thing happens. When I use IE10, this doesn't happen, and when I do use IE my WebRoot doesn't show-up in the upper right hand corner of the page as being active like it does on GC. I have done everything except restore to a previous version, which I truly hope I don't have to do. I've tried adjusting my WebRoot Firewalls but that doesn't seem to do anything, I have cleared all history, cache, everything! And still nothing works. Can someone please help me with this issue? Thank you very much.

Hi folks -- a bit of a complicated problem for someone to solve ;-)

In my architectural office, we have both ADSL from our phone line and DSL from our cable company. We did this because we have a lot of trees in the area. Can you say outage?

The DSL line has a static IP and connects to our Linksys RV042 router (IP, which connects via our switch to our server running SBS 2003. We log into this IP address for the VPN and remote desktop connections as needed. We have been forwarding FTP ports on this router to a computer that is off the domain to be our office FTP server (it's at

The ADSL line (which also has a static IP) is rarely used, but I got the idea of setting up dotProject for use on our projects (it's a freeware project website platform). It's also running on the FTP server. I had another router kicking around (a Linksys BEFSR41 at and I thought I could connect it between the ADSL modem and the switch. I've forwarded ports 80 and 443 from the ADSL connection to IP but I can't seem to connect to the project website from the internet. I can connect to it just fine internally.

So I need help configuring the ADSL modem connection so that HTTP and HTTPS get sent to our FTP server. Both routers are connected to the switch, and the FTP computer only has one network card in it at this point. I do have extra NICs around if a second NIC in the FTP computer would solve this problem.

Just found out I no longer am able to connect to HELP with both of my computers. Am running Windows Vista 32 in Home Premium and Ultimate. Don't know when it started, have not used HELP for some time. There are some old threads here on the subject with suggested fixes, none of them worked. Also found a couple of suggested fixes on the internet, still no go. My system restore goes back to 12/10, tried that too, did not work. Anything new on the subject?

Two computers with the same problem.
MY guess is that you are both SP1 or lower. Support has ended for SP1. Ugrade to SP2 and you will have more protection, features and Help
Go to the computer icon on desktop, right click, properties to see if you are SP 1 or 2.

Do not use this unless you are sure you have at least SP1

For the past two months I have been having serious problems with Google on Chrome and IE. Gmail seems to be the only Google product that continues to work. 
YouTube is always the first to go then usually Google Drive or Calendar. Eventually the ominbox will not work and even Google Search homepage won't work either.
I get the same message for every page. "The website is not available"

The connection to www.google.com was interrupted.

Check your Internet connection
Check any cables and reboot any routers, modems, or other network devices you may be using.
Allow Chrome to access the network in your firewall or antivirus settings.
If it is already listed as a program allowed to access the network, try removing it from the list and adding it again.
If you use a proxy server...
Check your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server: Go to the Chrome menu > Settings > Show advanced settings... > Change proxy settings...> LAN Settings and deselect "Use a proxy server for your LAN".

Word Hyperlink Kills Website in Browser

A:Word Hyperlink kills connection to certian website

Hi yes I saw the office thread,
Very interesting,
Any chance this machine added the site to it's safe sites zone ?
Internet options/ Security/ Safe sites icon/ Sites button/ Remove it if it's listed.
Add the site if it's not listed because you've tested on other machines,

Unfortunately I have office 2007 and can't test the issue
Never ran into any issues with links opening via doc... files,
If I did it was because I uninstalled Chrome and the file type protocols got corrupted In the Uninstall,
Might try this to reset all file type associations ?
Default File Type Associations - Restore

I did notice that the site is showing the comp-view icon on the top right of the url bar,
You might try to clearing the comp-view list Microsoft downloads automatically and uncheck that option,
When ie is open use Alt+TB uncheck use Microsoft comp-view lists,
Which might be a common link between different machines and how ie operates ?
Delete the browser history to remove all comp-view lists downloaded automatically,

I did see this on validating the html,
[Invalid] Markup Validation of http://www.sandrawalston.com/ - W3C Markup Validator
I don't know if that is effecting or causing the issue but I just tripped over it

Also I didn't notice which version of ie is being used,
I'm still on ie10,

I am running a pretty new PC with Windows 7. This weekend I updated Itunes to the latest version, and did a restart. After the restart, I was unable to connect to any website, using IE or Chrome. I was also unable to update anything (like my malware software definitions). However, my Internet connection is just fine. Under network connections everything looks good, and I am able to connect to an online chess server and play chess games, so I know there's no issue with my connection.

Now, I run my malware program and it finds and fixes 7 issues. I assume this must be what's causing the problem. After another restart, a second malware scan comes up clean, same with my virus software. However, still unable to connect to anything online other than the chess server.

Finally, I pull an older computer out of the basement, disconnect the cat 5 going to the new computer, and connect it up to my older computer. I was surprised to get the very same issue -- I was unable to connect to any website, but the Internet connection is fine. So, I have to assume that the malware was never the issue, unless it possibly reset some settings with my router or modem? The old and the new computer were never connected in any way, so it's not possible that the malware infected the old computer.

Any suggestions? I have been struggling with this for a couple of days now and really could use some help. Thanks!

A:I can't visit any website, even though my Internet connection is working fine.

My Name is Kaushal and I work for social media and community Team at Dell.
It seems like it's a connectivity issue with the computer.
1: Try to turn off the modem for 30 sec and disconnect the Ethernet cable from computer and restart, once the commuter starts you have the desktop window up and turn on the internet modem and once all the lite on the modem gets stable, after that please check the internet.

2: The best option would be to restart your computer and TAP F8 and it will take to black windows where in , You can select "safe mode with networking".
Once the computer starts then check the internet connection and if it works fine it means it could be something in the computer which is blocking the internet. Like an Anti Virus like MacAfee, Norton, Avast

3:If these 2 doesn’t solve the problem as you mentioned you tried the second computer, it Also doesn’t work in that case please get in touch with your internet service provider.
You will surely have the solution

Hi all, hope all is good.

Now, this has me baffled.

Im using a laptop with wireless connection from my router,(Linksys), and all is well. Im happy with the way my computer is running, and happy with my connection, however, whenever i visit BBC - bbc.co.uk homepage - Home of the BBC on the Internet to take a look at the news, and click on watch video report (using realplayer), not only do i lose the wireless connection to my laptop, but I also lose the connection to my laptop in the other room. To resolve this, I have to reset my router to gain access to the internet again.

I also get this problem when trying to listen to BBC radio 1 using Realplayer from the Official BBC website.

This is probably more related to Realplayer on my laptop, rather than the BBC website, however, Im confused why this happens. I have Realplayer installed on my wireless laptop, and it is fully functional.

Any ideas people?

Hi there,

I am trying to access www.magictv.co on two different laptops, but I keep getting 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' errors with all the web browsers on both laptops. However, when I access the website on two different mobile phones on the same Wi-Fi connection as I use on the laptops, the website works fine!

It seems that its something to do with the laptops. I tried cleaning the cache and have also changed the DNS in Control Panel, but still doesn't work.

Does anyone know a way of fixing it?

Thank you in advance!

A:Website doesn't work on computer, but works on Mobile using same Wi-Fi connection

In my opinion, either your LAN settings are not correctly specified for your browsers (you might have proxy enabled). Check Internet Options->Connections->LAN Settings.

If that's not the problem some firewall or anti-virus might be blocking it.

Hope it helps.

I have a Linksys Wireless-G 2.4 GHZ USB router-- with windows sp2... I tried adjusting the firewall and all sorts of stuff. sometimes, i just can't connect to some sites.

I'm trying to play this one game-- which requires me to access a certain page... but I simply can't connect to their control panel page. I checked with their admins and they gave me a bunch of possibilities. they checked my ip-- and i was clean. I ping'ed the server-- it was okay. I disabled firewall. I messed around with stuff that i have no clue about.(may turn out to be a bad idea, who knows) so they suggested that something was wrong with my ISP, but it's strange because I played with them before-- with full access to the control panel and whatnot...

any suggestions/advice?

My website runs off of an Access Database. 2 days ago I attempted to add 1400 new records to the DB, doubling its size to about 5.5mb. I haven't touched the queries or anything.

The problem now is that when someone accesses the site it creates a .ldb file and this ldb file gets bigger in size with each hit on the site. The site gets progressively slower as the ldb file gets larger. After only a few hits, the site becomes completely unbrowsable as the database fails to respond. The ldb file is locked and I have to restart the server to be able to access the database again.

I removed the new records and reuploaded the database. The site went back to working as usual. I can catch a glimpse of the .ldb file once in a while but it doesn't build up and shut down the site like it does when the new db.

I tried adding just one new record and the database still worked properly.

Why is that .ldb file sticking around for so long with the new db? What can I do to add the new items without completly crippling the site?

The server is Windows 2003 and the site is coded in ASP.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

A:MS Access 2003 DB on Website. New records added - connection timeouts, .ldb growing.

Are you importing the new records into the database?

I have found that importing records, expecially large amounts increases the size of my database, and that means the ldb will grow.

After your Import, do a Compact and Repair. I've seen my db go from 8+ MB back to just over 4MB after this.

I think that may help.

Hi! I connect my computer to the internet via a TP-Link router using an ethernet cable. When I turn the router on, I receive internet access, and it works fine. After a short period of time, I can't open any website, although the LAN connection status in my Windows XP SP3 is "connected"! When that happens, the LAN LED on the router is flashing while it lights without flashing in the natural situations!
**** NOTE: I have a laptop connected to the router wirelessly, and the internet works fine in it.
I hope to get fast response!
Thanks previously!

So I guess the title says it all:

Internet connection in (in the Internet Connection list) shows "Connected" but I can't go to any website.
neither in Opera nor in IE.

Fresh installed windows XP SP 2
Connecting through the Ethernet LAN wire.
The connection was working before I reinstalled Windows.
The connection shows the name of my Ethernet device so I don't think it's a driver problem.

What is your computer connected to? Go to "run" from the Start menu and type cmd then when you get a black box type ipconfig and then hit return. Then post back with the first part of the ip address, DON'T post all of it!
