No Internet

By elwin9 ·
I have a system that connects to the internet via external modem. It connects fine. But no other internet service will work. When trying to open a browser there is no delay in telling you it can?t connect. I reset the TCP/IP and repaired IE6 also ran Spy ware scan and virus scan. Anyone got any other moves I can try?
Thanks

Is the external modem connected to this system? Do you hear it dialing?

Are you getting an IP address? You can verify this with the command: IPCONFIG /ALL

Can you ping the default gateway? You can do this with the command: PING XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, where the X's are your IP address.

If all that works, see if you can ping a site by name, such as ING TECHREPUBLIC.COM, which should resolve to this on your system:

Pinging techrepublic.com [216.239.115.14 with 32 bytes of data:

Hi. Thanks for your reply. Modem is connecting and I pinged the ISP and the techrepulic servers and they responded just fine. I do beleave the problem is software. Open ie6 and it instantly fails and wont even try to connect.
