Verify default gateway on nic's tcp/ip properties. And, please, give more details about network configuration, maybe there is a firewall or something...

Start a command prompt, type ipconfig/all and paste the result here.

Okay, you can ping the LAN, that means your NIC (network interface card) is working.  I am assumming that you have your computer setup to automatically obtain ip addresses.  The next logicall check would be to check your router... is it setup to allow your computer to connect.   Please also run a spyware scan, this has been an issue for many of my clients.  ~a8le~

Static Ip address, Gateway ok , Correct DNS, Router OK, ran both S&D and adaware. Using DUN I can connect to the ISP but can not browse the internet either.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Again, if you can ping the lan, please make sure that your gateway, router, or both are configured right.

ipconfig /all?
0
 
katman_2Author Commented:
any site I ping the oy is in place of the IP Address in the first line.
ipconfig /all

everthing is correct.

I have had this same problem in the past on another machine. I found the fix with a google search
I had to uninstall the networking and reinstall it but I was not able to find it this time. with xp you can't uninstall the networking without going thru alot of steps the netsh on xp does not really reintall everything.

Default gateway is the address of the router.
DNS server is a DNS server in the network.
Network mask is ok for a class C ip network.

Try to ping an Internet IP addres let's say: 64.233.161.104 (www.google.com)
Tray to do a tracert for 64.233.161.104.

Uninstall IPV6.

Or, if not installed, there is a problem with the winsock, some libraries have been damaged. Run

sfc /scannow

I think you can't repair without uninstalling and reinstalling the network. Or, try again the winsockfix, the XP version, and netsh winsock refresh.

Got it fixed here is what I did.

 



Click Start >Run >regedit {enter}
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock and delete it
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Winsock2 and delete it
Exit Regedit and reboot.

To install TCP/IP over itself (to do this you need a copy of nettcpip.inf  There is one on the Windows XP CD and there may be one on your hard drive)

Right click "My Network Places" select Properties.
Right click the connection and select Properties.
Click Install >Protocol >add >have disk
Browse to the location of nettcpip.inf  (see above)
Select TCP/IP click OK
Reboot
