I have a computer that will not connect to the internet. I think I might have tried almost everything possible. Here are the details.

When I click on IE or Firefox, I get no connection. In IE I run the diagnostic test, it comes back and says "Windows cannot connect to the internet using HTTP, etc." When I goto my network connections it shows I have a valid IP address.

So, I looked at the "LAN" Settings in IE and checked to make sure no proxies were set, and everything was fine. I check the properties of tcp/ip and the settings are set to obtain automatically.
I went to command prompt and entered: ipconfig /flushdns
                                                                 ipconfig /renew
                                                                 netsh winsock reset

Everything went fine. Still no connection.
Makes no sense at all.

Anyone have any other ideas other than to do a repair installation which im not sure will work.

Any help is appreciated.
Thank you.

are you using static or dhcp for ip addressing?  check your dns settings just to make sure.  
Have you turned off the local firewall just for verification?

Yes I did all of that.
What I did was uninstalled it, then reinstalled with newer drivers.
Everything works fine now.
Thanks anyways!
