Can PING but cannot get IE Connectivity

By pcsdigitaldave ·
On a Windows 98 machine, I can PING outside my local subnet, but cannot get any connectivity with Internet Explorer or Outlook Express. I have removed and re-installed the network. Any suggestions?

Sounds like more of a DNS kind of issue. Have you verified the DNS settings on this computer? Has it worked previously? If so, what has changed since it was working?

You may want to try using Internet Explorer with the IP address of a web site, that would verify a DNS issue (if you can see it via IP but not by using the www.something.com). Try yahoo.com, by going to http://66.218.71.198

Hope this helps!

Check the version of Internet Explorer being used. If it is 6.0 remove it and go back to I.E.5.5. Follow same idea on your Outlook Express.

Your problem is either that you do not have the correct DNS settings, the correct default gateway setting, or the correct proxy server settings.

If you have another machine that works, take a look at it's TCP/IP configuration and the Tools>Internet Options settings in IE.

Good luck!

All the other answers are good, but is this the only computer doing this? If so remember (KIS) keep it simple, try a known good patch cable and try a known good NIC. I have seen and fixed over 30 computers with simple things like rebooting into safemode and removing drivers and rebooting. The device manager will not show all problems. If you have a firewall, the access will depend on who is logged on and their access.
