I built a PC a few months ago skelton case, Asus P6 Mobo, 6 Gigs PC16000 RAM, 500 GB HDD, Windows 7. Built it for gaming but since then i have been having weird ntw problems. I am getting internet from the apartment above me and even thoug my PS3 is located 3 ft to the left of the PC and it gets awesome connectivity My new PC (with 5 bars and supposed 72mbps speed) remains unable to access most web pages. I recieve errors such as "No ntw connectivity" and Browser errors like "Fire Fox is unable to access server (<<Something like that).
I am able to ping websites (google) and my gateway (192.168.2.1) from this computer but unable to ping myself (127.0.1). I have tried reinstalling my O.S Cleaning my registry/browser files, defragging hdd, statics IP'ing and a freind even recommended removing Norton as he could only imagine that it was causing the slowness of my internet but nothing has lasting affects. The fullsystem scans I run on Norton Internet Security 2011 all come back clean. If you need to know anymore please as, any help would be appreciated.
Currentlly im typing this out on my 5 year old laptop. Far worse technology then my new PC and yet its far more capable on the internet.
In Internet Explorer>Tools menu>Internet Options>Connection tab>LAN button, is there a tick in "Automatically Detect Settings"? If not, pop one in and remove any which might be below that box under Proxy Settings. Apply, OK your way out and restart IE.
That may help but otherwise Norton will always remain my prime suspect.
To cure the uinidentifiable network issue, delete the connection completely in Network Connections then restart to allow Windows to reconstitute it.
ok, currently im no longer having that issue. ATM im connected to the internet, agian at 5 bars and 72mbps but am unable to find web pages in firefox(firefox cant find server at www.google.com) or IEIm am unble to ping my Gateway, 192.168.2.1 but I am able to ping myself and google.com. I did a google search on my laptop about these problems and found a few posts about a "bonjour service" but its not present on my PC.
