Weird and Funky ... Win 2003 IE/Firefox

By hassanmir ·
..having a very funky problem since this morning. I am using IE in AOL to write this,can use MSN Messenger, can VPN to work, can use Remote Terminal Connection to work. After i VPN to work i can check my email in IE .. etc

I just CAN NOT use IE/Firefox to browse any websites, none at all. I can ping the very website just fine. I can ping yahoo.com just fine but it wont connect to it in IE.

Like i said browser in AOL works fin though.

Any help, ideas?

Thanks very much.

Open a command prompt and type IPCONFIG /ALL, check the DNS IP addresses, these should be pointing to your router or ISP DNS servers and not work DNS.

i checked that and DNS is pointing to my router, which should be correct.

i also tried this

"To repair Winsock if you have Windows 2003 Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed, type netsh winsock reset at the command prompt, and then press ENTER."

it did not help.

since i can ping any website, it does not seem to be a DNS issue.

Someone will shed some light on it, soon i hope.

Thanks
