I have windows 7. for some reason, when i connect to internet either by high speed modem of WIFI the computer shows i am connected but when i try to access the web nothing happens. what can be wrong. i have opened the command prompt window and have done all the ping steps and every thing checks out. I have disabled the firewall and that does not work. from what i can tell everything is enabled. the lap top is six months old and this problem just started. i have tried system restore and that no longer works. please help

  1. "nothing happens" is not descriptive. Is it a white page, Page Not Found? What site are you trying to reach?

    Can you ping google.com successfully? You did not say one way or the other.

    I have seen viruses change the proxy which tends to give you a Page Not Found Error. If thats your error then check Internet Options, Connections, and then Lan Settings...

    How are you trying to access the web? What browser are you opening to check web connectivity!
