I can network but can not connect to the internet

By hbdreams ·
I have four computers connected to a router and all but one have internet connection. It was able to connect to the internet but "mysteriously" quit working. The computer in question is still able to connect to the other computers on the network, but just will not connect to the internet.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

go to one of the working PC's. Click Start, Run and type in cmd click OK or press Enter.
At the command prompt type in ipconfig /all>c:\ws1.txt

Use it to compare to the non working PC. I think that you will find that it is to do with your DNS settings. If you know your Service Providers DNS IP Address enter it into the "Use the following DNS server addresses" on the General TAB on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties.

Can't connect to Internet

by Joanne Lowery In reply to Winsock2 corruption

Where do your PC IP addresses come from? Does your PC have a correct gateway address to the Internet router? Can you ping your gateway address? Can you ping an external IP address (E.g If you can ping that IP can you ping the FQDN of If you can't ping the FQDN can you tracert the FQDN to see where it stops?
