I have a windows 8 machine that cannot access the internet via internet explorer - regardless of which site I visit I simply get page cannot be displayed.
I have also tried browsing by IP address, trying to browse to one of Googles IP addresses (18.104.22.168) also fails.
I can ping without any issue - I can ping 22.214.171.124 and get replies.
I also managed to install teamviewer host and I can access the machine remotely so I know for sure that the Internet connection is there, just browsers will not work.
Things I have tried so far:
1.Install chrome - same issue
2.reset internet explorer settings.
3.check for proxy settings in IE - there were none
4.netsh winsock reset all
5.netsh int ip reset all
6.netsh int ip reset reset.log hit
I have also tried installing firefox but it fails - I think because it tries to download the full package itself and that requires internet connection.
Anyone got any ideas or further troubleshooting steps?
