Internet wont connect, but will connect in safe mode

Hello, I have a internet provider called sniper hill, and it will be connected and then it will go out, but when I boot in safe mode, the network works. I am using a cat 5 cable as well. I have Norton antivirus as well on my computer. Can you please help me resolve this?

download rougue killer from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/roguekiller/
download Malwarebytes from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/

Scan your machine


Probably a virus or malware

At first glance, I want to say that this is a network card driver error.  But before we get to that, let's do a little more diagnosing first.

Can you first tell us what your Operating System is? (e.g. Windows 7, Windows XP, Windows Vista)

With internet connectivity problems, it is usually very helpful to confirm if it is an actual connection problem or a name (DNS) problem.  For a good test of this, do:
start
run
cmd
ping 4.2.2.2
ping google.com
exit

Pinging 4.2.2.2 will tell you if you are reliably getting to the internet by number.  It will do four quick tests.  If you want it to run continuously (until you hit Ctrl-C), type:
ping -t 4.2.2.2

Pinging google.com will confirm if name resolution is working.  If it can't change google.com into an IP address (number.number.number.number), then you have a DNS problem.  If that is the case, run the following and post the results here:

ipconfig /all

You can also try a different web browser like Firefox or Opera to test if it is a possible hijack

If it were a DNS issue it would not function in Safemode correct?

I have win 8, and its a brand new computer. before i installed norton on my computer i was able to use the  internet with no issues. I also have another internet provider called iclos and using a cat5 cable I am able to acces the internet. Just for some reason when i use sniper hill it does not work. Well I will say that it worked for 5min and then it stopped. I somehow believe its norton but i am not sure

It sounds like it's a problem with your firewall configuration (probably trusted vs untrusted).  Do you have the full Norton Security Suite, or just Norton Antivirus?

I see... possibly a setting within Norton? I wonder if Norton is offended by the name "Sniperhill"

it seems that way. I am on the internet in safe mode now, but once i reboot to get to my normal screen, connection will come up and drop. it does this for both of my laptops which i have norton installed on both of them

Did Norton ask you if you wanted to trust the connection at any point?

mebaby333It AdminCommented:
Also did you check and make sure your windows firewall is disabled?

Try resetting your Norton 360 firewall

From the main page of N 360 select Settings choose Firewall then choose General Settings Tab then choose Firewall Reset then  Reset [+]

If this does not resolve it then you can try uninstalling and reinstalling Norton to reset the firewall rules... some have used the reset and it did not completely reset the rules.

I dont want to unistall norton because I have alot of fraud going on when norton is not installed. I just want to be able to use my internet with my sniper hill plugged in. I will try to reset my firewall mebaby333
