More about internet connected loads google websites
  1. Little more info: wired connection, I have scanned for viruses, I cannot load or download anything on my computer because of no internet so I typed this on my tablet
  2. Best answer
    you want to look for malware with something like malwarebytes but if you can not get the internet it is going to be tough.

    Try to ping some of the other sites from a command prompt. Some sites do not respond but the main thing is that is looks the site up. You can also try the nslookup command see what you get for
    nslookup tomshardware.com
    then try
    nslookup tomshardware.com 8.8.8.8

    The second is using google dns.

    If these have trouble I would be looking for firewall rules blocking you or maybe some bad stuff in the host file. You can just delete the host file exactly where it is kept varies a bit on windows release but it is just a file called hosts generally in the main system path in a directory that has a name etc.

    If the DNS resolves correctly then I would be checking browser settings...maybe proxy or something.
  3. I time out pinging anything other than google
  4. Does your router have outdated firmware? It sounds almost like a DNS problem. Can you ping IP address, without typing in the DNS name? Does your router have some type of access list enabled?
  5. If the nslookup command is failing when you use 8.8.8.8 then you have something blocking traffic likely a firewall rule on the PC.
  6. TS, any updates?
  7. Its not my firewall. Also the router works on every other computer except mine
  8. I looked up tomhardware.com fine, but with Google DNS 8.8.8.8 it timed out

    Hi..
    Follow these steps to troubleshoot the problem:
    1) Reset your TCP-IP stack from command Prompt
    2) Make sure your DNS servers are correct
    3) Make sure your hosts file is not altered in a bad way.
    4) If you have Avast Antivirus, Disable the web shield and try again. If this is the cause, uninstall the webshield or perhaps try to remove port 80 from the redirect list under "Troubleshooting" in Avast settings
    5) if still not working, reboot to safe mode with networking and try again. If it works here, run msconfig and disable all services except microsoft services and also all startup items. Reboot to normal windows, and try again. If it works now, check if your antivirus is running with the altered settings of msconfig. If your antivirus is not running (some can be disabled by msconfig but others refuse) turn your antivirus back on and reboot. Now all your startup items is dasabled except the antivirus.
    6) If it works in this state, we know the antivirus is causing the problem. I suggest uninstalling your antivirus, and re-enable the disabled items in msconfig. Reboot and test without antivirus installed. If it is working, you could try to reinstall your antivirus and check if it is still working.

    My problem was the Avast Web shield.
  10. I came across this thread, because I was having the same problem after a fresh installation of Windows 7 64-bit. I was worried because IPv6 had no connection (that's not the problem) and then that my DNS had no suffix (not the problem either). I tried EVERYTHING I found in forums including dnsflush and custom DNS servers, but nothing worked.

    I then saw one mention of someone having installed 32-bit drivers and not 64-bit drivers. I tried 64-bit drivers and this completely solved my problem. It's weird how something like that would be able to do this, but that's how I solved my problem 100%.

    I had the same problem. I just solved the problem.

    It has to do with IPv4 and IPv6 protocols Internet connectivity. Most likely your network adapter does not have Internet connectivity for IPv4. Google has an IPv6 address, so you are able to connect. The most other sites have IPv4 addresses.

    To resolve your problem, try the following in Windows 7:

    Control Panel
    Network and Internet
    Network Sharing Center
    Change Adapter Settings
    Double Click on your adapter, either Local Area Connection or Wireless Network Connection as the case may be.

    You probably will see:

    Internet only in IPv6 Connectivity
    Click on Disable button
    Your adapter will be disabled
    Again double click on your adapter

    Your adapter will be enabled and this time it will show Internet Connectivity in both IPv4 and IPv6.

    Now, you should be able to access all websites.

    Good luck!

    Hi, I have the same issue as you yesterday. And I resolved it today. It was the default getway with no key in 192.168.0.1

    Open Network and Sharing Center
    Connections: Wireless network connection

    Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
    key in your default getway

  13. Hello, this problem has been bugging me for some days now and i fixed it in short by uninstalling my network driver.

    My problem was caused by automatically letting it configure my router settings. When it searched for available networks after the reinstall i noticed wiifree network was highlighted. So i guess he most have connected to the wiifree net instead of the normal network SSID when it configured automatically. It makes sense now and i hope it helps anyone with this same frustrating problem!
  14. probably, you have installed some software before facing this problem,
    plz uninstall the software, if u installed any recently.and later plz restart ur pc forcefully, so that system background application will close.
    and just check now...

    if it is not working. problem may be with you system files.
  15. I had similar issue. Please check your wi-fi router's MTU setting. Router Admin page > Network > WAN > Advanced > MTU Size (in bytes). This could be different for your router

    I hooked up my new router TP-LINK TL-WR841N to broadband (BSNL).

    Internet access was working great in
    1. One of my laptops with Windows 8.1 OS
    2. My Android mobile (Redmi 1S)

    But I was facing this peculiar issue of only Google, YouTube (IPv6) sites opening while all other sites (IPv4) not opening in
    1. one Windows 7 laptop
    2. Nokia Lumia 520

    After trying every solution suggested in this forum, I finally hit one site, that suggested changing the MTU in router. My router's default MTU setting was 1480, which I changed to 1430. Voila! the issue is resolved.

  17. I need to see the images please can you help
  18. After days of struggling with this issue, I finally found the trivial culprit! Windows Firewall settings!

    Issue explanation:
    At unpredictable times, my internet connection simply stopped working for domains that were not google related!
    - After reboot the internet connection worked normally again. But sooner or later, the issue started again until next reboot.
    - It was no DNS problem as neither urls nor ip addresses (except for google ones) worked!

    Solution:
    Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> Windows Firewall
    If it says that Windows Firewall is not running with recommended settings, then be happy! Your problem is the same as mine! Simply click Use Recommended Settings and you are good to go. Internet will work as it should.

    But the problem could happen again from time to time. For no apparent reason, my Window Firewall settings revert back to the Not Recommended ones and bum! Only Google sites again! Of course you could do the above again to fix it. But who is causing this problem in the first place? I started having the issue approximately when I changed my antivirus software (removing Avira and installing Kaspersky), so I guess there is some sort of remaining Firewall editing software remaining from Avira but I'm not sure yet... I just wanted to share the solution with others! :)

    For me, changing the DNS to Google DNS solved the problem.
    Google DNS is 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4. You can change DNS number in the modem/router settings or your own device on which you are connected to internet. If its your own modem/router better change it there. If it is public network where you don't have access to modem/router settings, you can change the DNS in your device for that particular connection.

    Thanks for this RandomAngel!!
    Was diving in too deep into the network configuration looking for a solution, but this did it for me.

    The Windows Fiewall was NOT enabled.
    I enabled it, then accessed the same page I've been trying to load after each test.
    This time it came up - along with this forum page :P

    I looked up tomhardware.com fine, but with Google DNS 8.8.8.8 it timed out


    Looks like there are multiple potential causes of this issue. The cause I found in my situation isn't documented in the thread yet, so I'm adding it here.

    In troubleshooting a router via phone with Netgear, at some point they had me change my computer to a static IP address - in this case 192.168.1.20. After moving on through lots of other issues (including bricking the router when following the tech reps instructions, replacement coming on them), I completely forgot about this changed setting.

    Just as you noted above, I could get to Google sites including YouTube, and to Facebook, but not to other websites. And like you, I could nslookup tomshardware.com, but not nslookup tomshardware.com 8.8.8.8. As soon as I changed back to a dynamically allocated IP for my imac, all my problems went away.
  25. Weird thing, in my case i uninstalled mu GPU and this happened,
    to solve it i had to remove my old graphics card drivers and use windows update, and it was solved!
    OS : win 10 64bit
  26. Thank you. I had this problem ever since I did Windows 8.1 update. Always thought that it was a hardware problem and started using wifi dongle to the desktop.
    This morning, I went through your post and figured out I had the same problem.

    Thanks Bro.

  27. Few minutes back this problem started for all service providers in Delhi NCR. If you are in India then please wait for a while till they fix it up.
  28. This problem is only with DSL and Leased line providers while the cellular connection is fine.

    Yeah. I just figured mine out after reading everything on this list and none of them being the solution. It seems to be that all sorts of thing can cause it, BUT the key seems to always be that something with IPV4 routing is messed up while IPV6 is fine. So websites that are already converted to IPV6 become the only ones that work.

    In my case, my Netgear router, which I will never buy again after having two in a row that started having intermittent weird issues after about 9 months, had somehow assigned my laptop some random IP on another subnet and a 255.255.0.0 mask. Internally I should be on a 255.255.255.0.. I had glanced at it and not noticed until I saw someone on here mention that by looking at the adapter properties, you could see IPV6 connected to the internet but IPV4 not connected. Sure enough it was. Usually if the adapter's settings are on DHCP, there's no reason to check the internal IP if the rest of the wireless goodies in the house are working. I looked in my router and I saw several lines in the UpNP settings that were my laptop and the IP address was the same as what the laptop was. I turned off UpNP cleared the tables and almost immediately I had a proper IP address and all was working again.

    So here's a guess and someone can tell me if they think I'm way off base here........ Prior to this happening my laptop had run a Windows update. I had to leave and immediately went to work. At work I have an alternate static IP setup so I can be on their network. So I had no reason to suspect a problem. But I think something in the update made the laptop a UpNP device and then that was recorded and setup in the router. Once setup, even when I uninstalled the adapter, installed new fresh drivers from Intel, the router was just pushing it back out to the laptop.

    This would be another one of this impossible to prove weird settings changes on updates things that Win10 seems to do intermittently to just enough people to be deniable. I've had enough such issues that the only reason I didn't suspect it this time was because I left after the update and didn't come back to my normal IP connection for several hours. I even did a system restore to roll back before the update and it didn't fix it.

    This is all a guess. I don't know a lot about UPNP but from what I've just read it seems that a UPNP device will assign itself an IP address if it doesn't get one from the connection point (router?). Then it advertises it and is picked up by the router. Then in subsequent connections it's supposed to use that same IP address so I can see the router working in that way if it's the case.

    So anyways, WEIRD stuff, but fixed. This one baffled me so I wanted to post it here with the rest of the solutions so the next person has yet another possibly solution to the problem.

    By the way, I was trying all sorts of sites to see if there was anything common I could nail down. Suddenly I'm amazed at the number of people who haven't converted to IPv6.
  30. Hey I have found an active solution:-

    1. Open Network and Sharing Center
    2.In Ipv4 > DNS address ...type 8.8.8.8 and in alternate type 8.8.4.4
    3.In Ipv6 > DNS address ...type 2001:4860:4860::8888 and in alternate type 2001:4860:4860::8844

    Hope This Works
  31. If all the above suggestions don't work, you can try the below as it worked for me. The below will fix the issue only if you have a problem with you proxy server.
    In chrome,
    1. Go to Settings > Advanced settings > change proxy settings ...
    2. Click on LAN settings.

    Make sure you deselect the check box which says "Use a proxy server for your LAN".

    This at least worked for me.
    Also one more suggestion, try troubleshooting your issue with the windows troublshooter. It may not help you to solve the issue but at least give you the exact cause of the problem.

    Thanks.:)
  32. I made an account just to respond to this after 4 hours of staying up in the middle of the night stressed over troubleshooting. While I was doing all this I was to the point I was about to revert back to Windows 7 from Windows 10, I instead tried one more thing suggested by windows and I checked for updates and I was missing one. I installed it and everything was up and fine. If it is missing an update it may start working perfectly fine (at least for me).
    WINDOWS 10 FIX POSSIBILITY.
    Go to PC Settings > Update & Security > Check For Updates.
  33. It just happend to all devices in the whole house tried everything mentioned here and it still didnt work, i reset router and now have to configure it again but im at work.

    works great thanks
  35. I disabled my ipv4 static IP address and it resolved the problem, just changed settings to obtain automatically
  36. This might not work for everybody because looks like the problem can be caused by many things. I wanna share mine because I tried everything listed above. i tried checking IPv4 in the router settings, making my IP dynamic and automatic, flusing DNS, or using google DNS, even trying to turn off firewall. What I do is actually unchecking proxy server "use a proxy server for your LAN" located on "LAN settings" inside "internet properties" under the tab "connections". I hope my answer can help some people still struggling with it.
  37. Guys, i wasted two hours in the middle of the night... I tried almost everything mentioned over here.... But my problem was not solved.

    At last i found solution & would like to share with everyone... I believe it might help u guys in future...

    Control Panel ---> Network & Internet ---> Network & Sharing Center -- > Change Adapter Setting --->
    Double Click on your active Wireless Network Connection
    Then Wireless Network Connection Status will pop up---> Click on Properties
    Within the list, There is "Network Filter Driver" -- Remove (Uncheck) the check box

    Then Double Click on Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) ----> Select Obtain an IP Address & DNS Server address automatically.


    Cheers :)

    So had been searching for a solution to this for a whole day and found something that finally worked. Hopefully this helps someone else out. What I did was go to my LAN network adapter properties, uncheck both ipv4 and ipv6, then disable the network adapter. Then I re enabled the adapter, and checked ONLY ONE of either ipv4 or ipv6. For me, checking only ipv4 made my internet work again, although you may have to repeat and try the other protocol.

    by the way, all settings were on automatic

    I tried this and it didn't work it still says no Internet connectivity

    So i had a similar problem and was just able to fix it. Open "Windows Settings", then click "Network & Internet". Next click on "Change adapter options" and a new window should open that shows how you are connected to the internet. (For example mine says "Ethernet"). Double click the icon and it should open another window. Next click on properties and locate the check box called "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)". Select it and click the "Properties" button. "Obtain DNS server address automatically" should be checked when you open it. Go ahead and uncheck it by selecting "Use the following DNS server addresses".

    Enter the following:

    Preferred DNS server: 8 . 8 . 8 . 8
    Alternate DNS server: 8 . 8 . 4 . 4

    Then just hit "OK" and close all the windows. All web pages should be working now. If not try restarting your computer. This worked for me without restarting but I have heard of cases where users needed to restarts their computers in order for it to work.

    (FYI: I am running windows 10 on the latest version of chrome)

    Hope this helps!

    Preferred DNS server: 8 . 8 . 8 . 8
    Alternate DNS server: 8 . 8 . 4 . 4

    Then just hit "OK" and close all the windows. All web pages should be working now. If not try restarting your computer. This worked for me without restarting but I have heard of cases where users needed to restarts their computers in order for it to work.

    (FYI: I am running windows 10 on the latest version of chrome)

    Hope this helps!



    Thank you! This helped me to fix the issue after spending so much of days looking for solution to fix my wireless issue with Windows 10.

    After days of struggling with this issue, I finally found the trivial culprit! Windows Firewall settings!

    Issue explanation:
    At unpredictable times, my internet connection simply stopped working for domains that were not google related!
    - After reboot the internet connection worked normally again. But sooner or later, the issue started again until next reboot.
    - It was no DNS problem as neither urls nor ip addresses (except for google ones) worked!

    Solution:
    Go to Control Panel -> System and Security -> Windows Firewall
    If it says that Windows Firewall is not running with recommended settings, then be happy! Your problem is the same as mine! Simply click Use Recommended Settings and you are good to go. Internet will work as it should.

    But the problem could happen again from time to time. For no apparent reason, my Window Firewall settings revert back to the Not Recommended ones and bum! Only Google sites again! Of course you could do the above again to fix it. But who is causing this problem in the first place? I started having the issue approximately when I changed my antivirus software (removing Avira and installing Kaspersky), so I guess there is some sort of remaining Firewall editing software remaining from Avira but I'm not sure yet... I just wanted to share the solution with others! :)


    THANK YOUUU!!!!
