TCP/IP is still a problem!

By joe.oconnor ·
I cannot seem to browse the internet when connecting to my ISP (using DUN!!!). I can "ping" the ISP's DNS servers AND my DHCP-assigned address, but no Web pages! I have un-installed and re-installed TCP/IP, replaced wsock32.dll and winsock.dll and remove and re-installed ALL networking. Still no luck! Can anyone help?

P.S. My PC is NOT connected to a LAN!

Thanks!

Hi, some things to check. As you imply, not a TCP/IP problem; I agree. Double-check your modem (run at command from telnet, then dial your ISP through telnet to see if you get a connection). If works, great. Then, make sure you have latest 95 or 98 patches for dun (I know there was one for 9. You would need to do this stuff anyway; if still not working then it may indeed be your browser (also make sure clear text authentication is checked in dun - other encryptions could keep pages from coming us). I hope these suggestions help.

One other thing to check, you say you are not networked, then check to be sure that TCIP is the only protocol bound to your dial-up adapter. You should not see Netbeui at all in network components, nor any internet connection sharing protocols.
Hope this helps.

Here is a small datail that you should check. Open your Browser Options, and check that you're not using a Firewall.

That's it, if it is correct, check other answers.

First of all, since you can ping your ISP's server and your on DHCP IP address, then your connection is working properly. I would advise to not do anymore .dll or networking reinstalls. If your connection is working, then leave it alone. Only check and make sure you have the latest updates from the windows update site. That side of things is getting it's job done.
The first thing to check is that IE properties/Connections is set to use your connection as the Default. Then check that Proxy is disabled. Do not use AutoDetect Settings either.
Then under Networking Properties/TCP/IP properties, check that WINS is disable. If its enable, this sometimes throws a browser address call the wrong way. Most ISP servers don't use WINS anyway. I knowif have this enable, it will slow my web page loading to a crawl.
Second, once this is done, try pinging an IP address of a know web page. If this works and IE will still not load a web page, download and install IE 5.01. This way you reinstall IE and get the latest br
