Re: No Internet access Windows 7

Sorry mate, I'm out of ideas. It's connected fine, but not resolving hostnames. I don't know of anything besides the DNS (which we've ruled out!) when this is the issue. Dan I'll disable the onboard NIC & put in a PCI NIC card to see if there's any change. Thanks. FYI, the same scenario goes when a...

Re: No Internet access Windows 7

Well 66.102.9.99 is the IP address for google. :-/ Which screams to me DNS issues, but as it's the same as other PCs and they're working fine I'm a little puzzled. Can you try adding another DNS server to the machine: 208.67.222.222 (It's one of the open DNS servers) (On network connections, right ...

Re: No Internet access Windows 7

Easiest thing to do is to check the DNS settings against a known working computer on the LAN. The assigned DNS servers can be seen in the 'status' window of the network connection adaptor. (On network connections, right click the adaptor, status, details, and DNS will be in the list) Dan The 3 DNS ...

Dan
Other systems on the LAN are accessing the WAN OK, so I believe DNS servers are correct. Do you have a recommended method to check DNS servers?

Uninstalling & reinstalling did not change the situation.

BTW, I can not ping www.google.com but I can ping 4.2.2.2.

Thanks.

No Internet access Windows 7

Can ping router and 4.2.2.2 OK. Have reset winsock via [netsh winsock reset catalog] and [netsh int ip reset reset.log]. Have un-installed IE & re-installed. Firefox can not access Internet either. Have set up new user. Firewall is off. No proxy.

Any ideas?

Thanks.
