Computer connected to internet but it cant “access” it.

Q: Computer connected to internet but it cant “access” it.

This is a VERY weird issue and lll PayPal anybody $10 that solves.

So, a couple days ago I was playing games on my computer and force-shut down my PC since I couldn?t get the game to close. The following day I open my computer and open Chrome and the only websites I can access are YouTube, Google Search Pages, some Google websites, and that?s it. Should also be noted that when I use YouTube the videos won?t play, just load the whole time meanwhile everything else on the page loads.

After this, I tried opening Discord and other applications such as Skype to see if they would work but they also couldn?t ?access? the internet.

Summary: My computer is connected to the Internet but no programs can ?access? or ?use? it it seems (including internet browsers, so can?t even search the web).

I have tried countless of ways to fix this but can?t find a solution. Any help?

Preferred Solution: Computer connected to internet but it cant “access” it.

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.)

Dear Techspot Forums,

I am having some serious problems with my computer that I'm hoping you can assist me with. My computer is currently connected to my wireless Linksys 3000 device and everything is working properly. My laptop, that I'm typing this forum on now, is working great and always connects when I turn it on. My computer however, does not connect.

The computer shows that it is connected to my Linksys device, but upon clicking on the internet button it says "webpage can not be displayed" The bottom right hand corner of my screen shows "limited connectivity" with a small yellow triangle. This icon has shown in the past, but I've still been able to connect with it.

I'm not sure what to do, I've done everything from repairing, running full system Norton scans, to downloading a winsock repairer from a flashdrive, and trying that on the computer. When I run the winsock and click "fix" it says "registry import information not found". Because I cannot connect, norton security is out of date, and I cannot conduct buisness on it. Any information would be most helpful!

A:Computer is connected to Internet but Internet doesn't connect

Remove Norton completely if you can. Download a program like Malwarebytes and a temp file cleaner like this:

Run these programs, restart when you are told and try connecting to the Internet once more. I suggest that you try Microsoft Security Essentials before you revert to Norton

I can connect and access the internet wirelessly. I can connect but not access the internet when hardwired. I can ping the router and receive 4 positive replies. I have another computer connect via hardwire to the modem and it works fine. I've switched cables from one computer to the other and it made no difference.
I was was connecting and accessing the internet just fine a few days ago. I had to leave for a few days and someone else had access to my computer. They deny doing anything. I tried restoring the computer to an earlier point but it only had one restoration point from 1 day ago. The restoration made no difference. I've tried connecting via firefox and internet explorer but no luck. Any ideas?

I have a slightly different problem I was hoping you could help me with. Here's a link to a printscreen of the problem.

Basically - even though I'm connected to the internet, my computer says I'm not. I'm able to browse the internet without any problems even though the icon in the right corner of my screen constantly taunts me by claiming I'm not connected. This is more annoying than anything else, but I would like to know how to change it. I have been unable to manage it myself.

Any ideas? Searching the internet tells me I'm not the only one with this problem, but I've yet to find a solution.

Hello giganemo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if disconnecting and reconnecting the wireless connection may help toggle the correct icon. If not, then see if disabling and enabled your wireless adapter in "Network Connections" may.

Hope this helps,

I just built a new computer, and everything was put together and installed successfully. The only step remaining is to connect to the internet.

I'm running windows XP home, using a Gigabyte brand S-series motherboard, using the drivers supplied with the motherboard.

When I look at the network connections, they tell me that I am connected to my FIOS internet, and even though I have the same network settings as my dad's computer (which can connect), none of my internet programs can access the internet.

I've tried reinstalling my drivers, turning the router off and on, disconnecting and reconnecting the ethernet cable, and called my ISP, which tells me that the problem isn't with the network so they can't help me.

Please help!

My laptop is showing that it is not connected to the internet. I have the red 'x' over the internet icon in the bottom right corner and when you go into the network sharing center it shows a red 'x' on the connection between my computer and the internet. However, if you go into the internet options it says that I am connected to our home wireless router. I am able to use the internet like I was before this happened but it is much slower than before and my security program will not do any updates because of this. None of the other computers in the house are having this problem and the internet is moving at regular speed for them. How do I fix this? Any advice here would be helpful. I'm not really techno smart but I can follow directions really well.

I have a desktop and a laptop that are connected to my router but can't connect to the internet. One of our other desktops is working great. Another had the same issue and I fixed it using the "netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt" command.

I've tried the following on the remaining computers:

netsh int ip reset c:/resetlog.txt
netsh winsock reset catalog
ipconfig /flushdns > Iponfig /release > Ipconfig /renew

The command prompt fixes are new to me, so I'm not sure what they do exactly but it fixed one computer, I just cant get it to work on the others. I've also switched between static and dynamic ip's using network properties.

I'm getting pretty frustrated.

The Media disconnected on the ethernet probably means a defective NIC or cable.

Try a dynamic connection on the wireless.

To configure a dynamic IP address on your Windows Vista or 7 computer:

1. Click Start.
2. Select Network, then Network and Sharing Center, and click Manage network connections or Change adapter settings from the list of tasks.
3. Right click the connection of interest and click Properties.
4. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) from the list and click the Properties button.
5. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
6. Select Obtain DNS Server address automatically.
7. Click OK.
8. Click Close.

Check the Windows Event Viewer and see if Windows is reporting any errors.

I assume that since you have to "connect to the internet" you are using dial-up? Or just when you have a browser window open?

I'll start from the beginning:

Our old computer was having some problems a few months ago with spyware. It's XP Pro SP1, and we didn't have an up-to-date anti-virus program installed, we had McAfee, but the subscription ran out and we were too lazy to do anything about it, so we were sitting ducks.

Following the instructions from a different computer help site, I ran Ewido, Spy-bot and Adaware to help with the spyware problem. Turns out it was alfacleaner. I used SmitFraudFix to get rid of the problem, but over time it showed signs of coming back.

Two weeks ago the old computer started acting bizarre. After 30 mins online the taskbar looked like it was switching itself into safe mode (or something that looked like safe mode, or Windows98, whatever it was doing it wasn't XP-ified), it would then switch back into the normal XP environment and the internet connection was locked -- we have dialup, if you picked up the phone you could still hear that it was online. We couldn't open the internet dialogue thingie and no pages in FF or IE would load. The only way to fix that problem was to restart the computer.

I went back to the other help forum, and was recommended to install AVG, which I did. It could a virus, I got the removal tool from their website and but the problem continued. AVG, Ewido, Spy-bot and Adware would only come back with minor spyware on the computer, no viruses. My parents got sick of that computer and decided to buy a new one just... Read more

My ancient HP desktop connects to the network via wired connection. My laptop connects wirelessly (usually). Both have very strong signals from the router and the desktop connects to the internet just like always, but the laptop isn't getting the internet signal. The laptop is an Acer Aspire 5534 (Costco special) and the router is a Linksys Simultaneous Dual Band N-type. The only real significant thing that was done on the laptop was to install Adobe Shockwave Player with Norton Scan. I already have McAfee on the laptop tho, so I uninstalled the Norton. I'm going to do a system restore in a moment...any other suggestions would really be appreciated!

BTW, the laptop would occasionally seem to disconnect itself from the network and I would have to completely shut down the network (hard restart) and all computers to reset. This always worked before, but now it isn't. Like I said, I have excellent wireless connectivity, but the internet isn't there, just on the laptop. Even if I go wired with it!

A:Connected to the Network, but no internet...on one computer only.

I've narrowed it down to a freakin firewall issue with McAfee. When I turn the firewall off, I get access to the internet. I restored the firewall settings to default and everything seems "normal" again. But why would my firewall start to do this. It seems to randomly disconnect my laptop from the internet (not the network).

I hadn't had internet in a while, and when I finally did get it I ran into this problem. At first I didn't know what was wrong, because my computer would restart itself within 1-2 minutes repeatedly. After retracing my steps I unplugged my wired internet and the computer ran just fine. But even after startup, once I plugged in the cable again it would restart. After trying some things, I heard to run combofix. After transferring the file from a library computer, I ran the app, and everything worked. But whenever I restart my computer, it resets itself unless I unplug my cable and run combofix again, which fixes the issue until I turn of or reset my computer. This Is a real pain and I cant figure out what could be the problem.I thought this had to be a hidden virus or something.

I run on Windows 8. I noticed the computer kept refreshing to desktop page, may be every 10 seconds. When the internet cable was unplugged it was OK.  I have done the following things and led to believe the problem is at the hard drive.1. I changed the cable and nothing improved,  which led me to think the hardware problem at the cable plug-in area.2. I used a wireless adapter. it didn't help which led me to think the motherboard was faulty. 3. I bought a used computer running Windows 7. It runs OK with the cable plugged in.4. In order to run the programs and files in the original computer, I installed the hard drive from that computer as C:. As soon as the internet cable is plugged in, the computer started refreshing.5. With this hard drive installed as non C drive, I run the "housecall" from Trendmicro and found no virus or spam ware. 6. I came back to the original computer. It runs perfect as long the cable is not plugged in. Any suggestion? What driver or programs run when the cable is plugged in? Since I can't connect the computer to internet with this hard drive I can't run Windows update.

A:Computer keeps refreshing when the internet is connected

Does this problem only happen when you go online?
If it does, have you tried a different browser?
You need to be aware that the operating system recognizes identifiers belonging to the chips sets.  If you don't use the sysprep from the command prompt the operating system will recognize the identifiers belonging to the different motherboard.  This can and usually will have an adverse effect on the operating system.
If you run sysprep on the HHD/SSD with Windows 7 or 8.1 before using it with another motherboard you should be be able to boot from it without any complications. You want to remove all hardware identifiers from the HDD/SSD, this generalizes the drive.
Click on the Start orb, then type cmd in the Search box.
cmd will appear under Programs above the search box, right click on it and choose Run as administrator.
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt.
In the Elevated Command Prompt type in CD C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep, then 
use the command: sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown.
Don't power the drive back on until it's in the other computer.
Note: You'll want to install the new motherboard chipset drivers for the new motherboard after moving the drive.

First of all, I have a sbc dsl modem. The problem is definitely with the computer because: I am using my other computer, and it works fine with the same internet connection. However, when I connect it to my desktop computer, it doesn't work. The connection is alright, with packets coming in and going out, but when I open all three of my web browsers: internet explorer, mozilla firefox, netscape, and safari, none of them work. I am on a Sony PCV-RS310 computer and the ping comes back saying that all four packets were lost. I first thought this might have been a virus or something blocking a port, but it seems impossible that something like that could happen. I frequently use torrent programs, like bittorent and uTorrent. I first thought i might have downloaded some sort of virus, but after scanning- with databases updated on this computer, with 5 different antivirus programs, I gave up. Any idea what is happenning is appreciated. Thanks in advance. (((((((

A:Internet connected and works on other computer, but not on this one

The Router is what? Wired or Wireless? If either one who makes it? How old is it? Remember that BT traffic packets can take it's toll on a router. You'll need to get a heavy duty router otherwise you'll start to get packet loss as you're getting now.

If you're just connecting with a 4100 Modem then I would say replace that modem. So which SBC DSL Modem to you have?

I have an old computer that is currently windows xp sp3.
It works perfectly fine, up untill i connect to the internet. I have wireless internet and 3 computers, 1 laptop, and an xbox that connect to it. Its only 1 of my computers that have this problem, and they are all XP SP3. If i start my computer with the antenne in it, not even 5 seconds when its turned on, it reboots. When i turn it on W/O the antenne, it stays on and has the message saying that it just recovered from a failure or something that like. But it doesnt turn off, when I connect the antenne, it reboots itself..
Ok, i unchecked reboot when system failure, and the BSOD popped out and said
*** stop: 0x000000d1 (0x002135b5, 0x0000000z, 0x00000000, 0xf764dcd9)
*** rt2500.sys -address f764dcd9 base f7637000, datestamp 42676c99
Then when i turned it on, it said that the system recovered from serious error.

A:Computer Restarts when connected to the internet.

If the issue is only occurring when you have the wireless antenna installed then it could potentially be a driver issue since the blue screen is making reference to the "rt2500.sys" file. Have you tried finding an updated driver file for it, installing it to the system, and then attempting to see if the system will recognize the device with the new driver?

Before the computer wouldn't even say that it was connected to the internet, but was connected to the router. I went into the options and it was trying to connect to a certain DNS server but I had changed it to automatically find one for me. Then it was saying that I was connected to the Internet but IE9 still wouldn't display the webpage. Please Help.

Ok, my problem first started after I brought my comp home from getting a replacement modem installed. When using any ISP browsing the internet with IE6, AOL's web browser or Netscape 6, the comp will freeze completely. CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't even work. The coursor still moves though. All I can do is press the shutdown button. It occurs more frequently using IE but it still happens almost everytime I'm connected no matter what browser I use.

I've ran tons of virus scans using Norton AntiVirus2003. I've also ran spyware scans with Ad-Aware 6 build 162. I'm not finding any problems there.

Hello everyone. Thank you for your time in reading this.

My girlfriend has recently had a problem with her computer in that the computer shows that it has
connectivity to the internet, but none of the applications can access the internet. She is able to
connect to other computers over LAN just fine and has no problems with that, it's just reaching
the internet that is the problem.

What has me stumped on this is how browsers are acting during this. With most network related issues
the browser will display some kind of error, either that the page cannot be displayed or something. But
for both Firefox and Internet Explorer you can type in any URL(ie; www.Google.com) and when you try
to load that webpage the browser shows a loading bar for a split second, then the URL is cleared from
the address bar and it stays on a blank page.

It does the same with bookmarks, links and everything else I have tried. As I said, applications have issues as well. Guild Wars 2 says it cannot connect to the server, as does Steam and Origin.

I have cleaned her harddrive using Malware Bytes' Anti-malware as well as using Comodo's Anti-Virus on both of our computers. She did have a lot of malware but removing it didn't solve the issue. Also I am unable to restore her computer to any earlier point because of an error that says something along the lines of "Cannot restore file "/c/$recyclebin...", I could get the actual error tonight if that helps.

I appreciate any ... Read more

A:Computer Is Connected, But No Access To Internet

If you can see other computers on the LAN, but not get to the internet, then the computer may not have a default gateway configured. Or has the wrong gateway configured.

Or, seeing as the computer had some malware, you may need to do a reset on Internet Explorer. Or install Firefox (if you download the install files on another computer and use a USB stick).

Can anyone help?! please.

My wireless connection was fine up until five days ago. I then was connected to the network with Limited access which for me was no access as I could not get mail or connect to the intertnet. I have been unable to resolve and I have now done a system restore back to an earlier point but this has not made any difference. I noticed from a previous post that you needed the ipconfig info as below. Hope this helps.

Hi, I have a Windows vista laptop that has WLAN and I can usually connect to other wireless networks such as Linskys. My roommates and I recently got internet when we moved and they can connect to our internet wireless in their rooms while mine says I'm connected but when i go on the internet, it says internet explorer cannot display the webpage. I can get internet when I connect our netgear router cable in my computer. However when i take the cable out, it says I'm connected but I can't access the internet. I want to be able to access the internet in my room without having to connect to the cable.

I have diagnosed it and it hasn't fixed it. I did ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew using command prompt and nothing has fixed it.


Thank you!

I'm trying to figure out what is wrong with a friend's computer. The tech support guys at school are unable to figure out what is wrong with it or even get close. Tech support recently reformatted her computer so it is quite clean however it has one problem.

The problem is that whenever the computer is started up (windows 2000) the cpu useage jumps from 1% to 35% every few seconds, slowing it down erratically. I found the problem to be something related to her internet connection. The computer needs to be connected to the internet in order to run smoothly. If the computer is connected to the internet it does not have any trouble running and it is only when the computer is disconnected that it has trouble running.

Thanks, if there is any information you need about the computer I can provide it. Below is the Hijack log when connected to the internet. I'll post the another log in a new post without the internet connection. Look below

A:what do i do if my computer restarts when connected to the internet

Hi rechad and Welcome to TSF,

So all this happens only when you activate the Wireless card? Has this started happening recently? While it could be a software fault it could aswell be a hardware failure. You should scan the system for malware aswell.

I would advise you to firstly:
1. Try to restore the system to a previously known working restore point (Start > Search > rstrui > hit ENTER).

And if that doesn't cover it:
Start > Search > type "Cmd".
Rightclick Cmd.exe > Run as administrator.
Type "sfc /scannow" > ENTER.
If any faults are found , YES to repair.

If problem still persists, go into the Event log (Start > Search > eventvwr.msc > ENTER) and have a look around your Systems log, see if you find any faults (Red stop signs/yellow triangles) on any of the logs, that seems to be reoccuring around the Date/Time it last occured. If you're unsure, choose Action > Save log As, and attach it to your next post.

Hi there. My computer will freeze often when I am connected to the internet. I can't even ctrl, alt and delete.

Through reading other topics I ran a malwarebytes anti-malware scan and it said no files were infected. I've also just run a HijackThis check and it's come up with the log file which I believe it recommends showing to you fine people. It doesn't mean much to me unfortunately. Is there anything else I should be doing? Thanks a million in advance.

I already tried using mcafee and malwarebytes, but it did not fix the problem. The thing I am seeing right now is that malwarebytes is constantly having to block outbound connections from the following processes: notepad.exe, dllhost.exe, msiexec.exe, conhost.exe, explorer.exe. It seems that those processes wants to access malicious websites according to malwarebytes. Are those processes infected, I am guessing that is the reason for high CPU when connected to the internet. I am not sure where to go from there.

Yesterday morning, my computer started restarting whenever I connect to the internet. I've tried other network cards, I've tried connecting to a mobile hot spot, I've reset my computer to factory defaults, and it's still restarting when I connect to the internet (I'm currently using a different computer. There are 7 computers on this network and mine is the only having problems). I did run GMER, but it wouldn't save an ark.txt file.

Hi! Recently my internet has gotten so unbearably slow that when I just even connect to the internet, my whole computer lags and it is rather unbearable. I've done multiple speedtests and hardly does my download speed go past 3 mbps on a 50mbps connection. And the problem is that it's only on this machine. On other machines I get speeds up to 20 mbps (which is still slow on the plan, but considering that they're wireless connections with multiple machines running at once, it's fair.) I can hardly load Youtube videos, photos, and webpages. Most notably when I go and play online games, the lag is just unthinkable. I would like some help with this issue, and here are the specs of my computer and network.

Intel Core i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10 GHz
8.00GB RAM
1TB of storage
Windows 7 (64x) installed
ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series 4GB
