computer can ping but not connect to web
Posted on 2007-03-29
A particular computer on the network can’t connect to the internet via Internet Explorer or FireFox. Tried a variety of websites with no luck. I am able to ping the websites from DOS, and even ping –a their IP’s to translate their host names, however the browser never connects to the pages. Windows Firewall is off and the settings obtained via DHCP to this computer are the same as other computers on the network that are working online with no problem.
I’ve ran full scans with Symantec AntiVirus and nothing found, ran ccleaner, ran ad-aware, ran spyboy, ran dell troubleshooting utilities and nothing. Tried repairing connection and nothing.
Every time it tries to connect to a website through Internet Explorer, it does indeed show the IP address in the status bar but then quickly changes and says “Connecting to 184.108.40.206” and never loads a web page.
