  1. Check TCP/IP Properties.

    Start, Connect To, Connection, Properties, Scroll Down TCP/IP and highlight, click Properties and check that Obtain DNS and IP address automatically are enabled.
  2. they are both enabled but it still doesn't work, thanks for the reply
  3. Please provide the following info
    What device are you connected to ? is it a router or modem?
    What is operating system ?
    What ip address do you get?
    Type the following in a command prompt
    ipconfig /all >C:\ipstat.txt

    It will generate a text file with the name "ipstat.txt" in C drive.
    Copy the contents and paste it here.

    If its a router it would also be helpful if you could provide the name and model as well.

    Try a ping test.
    ping yahoo.com

  4. For this problem, you contact the Internet service provider,
    After that check your ping test, through this site http://www.whoisxy.com/ping.aspx
