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!

You did say that you can ping your ISP's DNS servers, and your IP address.
HOWEVER, have you tried pinging a host name, such as: ping www.techrepublic.com.
If you try that, at a DOS prompt, after connecting to your ISP, and get an error like Bad IP address, then your problem is name resolution. Your DNS server's addresses may be incorrect, or the servers themselves may be having problems.
This situation happened to someone I know, on Road Runner Cable internet service. After manually specifying DNS servers that I knew worked, the user could then browse the Internet.

check you dialup adapter if it is bind with your tcp/ip to do this go to control panel click network choose dialup adapter,click properties located under dialog box,click bindings ensure tcpip is check in the checkbox.then reconfigure your internet browser by going to it's option there type in
your isp proxy server description with correct spelling.if done close the browser and start your connection manager.

Use default gateway on remote network is checked? That's in DUN's config in TCP/IP properties. Logon to network is checked?
Enable software compression might need to be unchecked if your ISP has some ?nix because MS uses an incompatible compressionscheme. Your ISP might have a proxy to give you access to the web. Place the proxy settings of your ISP in your IE settings.

If you can ping your tcp\ip is ok, dont change it, uninstall your current browser then install newer version of whatever browser you are using, make sure your security settings are the default settings and if this still dont work contact your ISP tech support and pose the question to them (sounds like problem is on their side anyway)
you can also check to see if client for microsoft networking is installed if not install it. Also all those installs and unistals of the networking components could have corrupted some of the registry settings and this will require an os reinstall (easiest way to fix registry) Good luck
