Internet explorer will not display any pages despite being connected.

Have tried the following:-
1. Loaded Firefox but same problem
2. Connection to internet is working.
3. Can ping google.com successfully
4. Cannot open router setup page. (This does not obviously need the internet)
5.Firewall and anti virus are off.
6. Uninstalled and reinstalled network card.
7. Scanned for malware.


So the problem appears not to be the connection but the inability of any browser to display a page.
Any ideas other than reloading the OS

Try uninstalling Firefox and uninstalling Internet Explorer. If IE is version 7, uninstalling will revert to Version 6. Then restart and see if there still is an IE of some version and see if it works. Then install IE7.

If no IE exists after uninstalling, try installing Firefox and see if it works.

Before doing any of the above, make sure you have Firefox to reinstall, and see if you can download IE7 so it can be reinstalled. I don't want you to uninstall things with no way home.

I think you rooter blocks the port 80.

Reset you router, then reconfigure the ip , dns ...

As valybt says, hard reset the router, and its a good practice to clear the cache and cookies of IE (may be u have done this). if this even doesnt works, try swapping the cable ends or else change the cable which connects your router and Network Card......

why wouldnt you just install a new nic card? its worth the try....if there is somthing wrong with the nic card it will be present once you reinstall the OS

Thank you for all your suggestions. I tried most of them including removing NIC etc.
Have now reloaded OS and all works perfectly.
Concluded that sometimes only solution is to reload OS due to obscure corruption.
