I have a really odd issue. I had a PC come in today with no connection to the internet. I've went through the usual issues checking IE settings, running cc cleaner and malware bytes. Removing the 7 different trialware AV suites that always seem to clog things up.
Now I am to a fairly clean installation, but I still get page cannot be displayed. What is odd is that I can ping the outside say 220.127.116.11 or even google.com by name. So the connection is there, but something else is going on. I can even open fileshares by name and IP.
At first my hunch was a DNS issue because if i try to NSLOOKUP anything it returns unknown server. However i cannot access a webserver device on my network by IP either (even though I can ping it).
It is consistent across browsers too, both Chrome and IE. Nothing odd in device manager either. I'm really stumped on this one.
