Unable to access the internet.

By shikonari ·
Here's the issue I'm able to ping internally within the Network with no issues, but can't ping external to the outside network. Tried going to,Yahoo ect.. no luck this is within internet explorer 7. Checked under tools option, Connection and made sure under LAN setting Proxy is not selected. I though it might be Internet Explorer issue so I tried on different browsers Firefox, Chrome and they all have the same issue can't browse the internet.

Made sure windows firewall services is stop as well as any antivirus software running with no luck.
Also checked Local area connections status is working fine.
Checked the host file made sure nothing is added except the ones that should be there.

I ran out of ideas, if anyone knows the solution for this it would very much appreciate it. Thank you in advanced.

The DNS is not being resolved in this case. put in in your DNS and see if you can go out to the internet.
