Cant connect to internet

I cant connect to IE 7 or 8 or Firefox. I have ran a virus scan, malwarebytes and superantispyware and found nothing. When I do a diagnose connection problem First I get "Windows cannot troubleshoot your network connection because an error as occured." Please try again. When I click view last diagnostic log I get a lot of stuff but the only thing that is in red highlight is HTTP, HTTPS, FTP connectivity. Then ...warn...HTTP Error 12029connecting to microsoft.com: A connection to the server could not be establesed with several other error messages that are simular except different sites. then at the end of that it says..."error...Could not make an HTTP connection"  etc.

 I have uninstalled IE8 with no luck running IE 7.

Any answer as to how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

in the command prompt try pinging to some website or some valid ipaddresses, if its returning a ping then its confirm that internet is enabled in your system.

Then in the IE > options > check the box, Automatically detect the internet connections option.

Hope this helps
in the command prompt launch ipconfig command.
you will see the ip address on of gateway (i hope you have)
the launch ping command over the gateway ip address (ie ping yourgatewayip) then hit enter.
if you see message like this:
Reply from yourgatewayip: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from yourgatewayip: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from yourgatewayip: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=128
Reply from yourgatewayip: bytes=32 time=5ms TTL=128

then check your router if it has connection to Internet by logging into router admin console then check if you get  public IP from your ISP, (check your logins also/ provided by your ISP, call them if necessary)

check your proxy settings in IE that is in: Tools> Internet Options> Connections> LAN Settings> Proxy Server.

Check your machine DNS settings as well.
hi,

check ur n/w connection, ping ur dns, ip and gateway if its working fine, check ur proxy setting.
Might be netbios issue is there .

The internet connection seems to be too slow, as you can notice there are packet loss in the  ping query.
Pls check the bandwidth from  your ISP.

Hope this helps

This laptop that I am working on had the same problem at her house that it is having at mine. Internet speed is not an issue.

go to command port, and type

telnet google.com 80

If there is a internet connection available, then it will show a blank command window after getting connected, else connection error.
If connected, then staying on the command prompt, press cntrl+C, you will notice some text being printed, that  means your net connection is active and reliable.
