    My internet doesn't work
    « on: April 15, 2009, 01:59:07 PM »
    So my internet doesn't work and i am forced to do this on my roomates computer for now. Recently i was stuck in a boot log on/off loop but was able to fix that without losing all my information. But when i was then able to log into windows XP i was unable to get internet. I am on a laptop with wireless and the wireless WORKS. It finds the available connections and connects to them, but no information is able to pass through. Even when i connect to the router via Ethernet or USB cable the same problem occurs, for both Firefox and IE. I just get the old "internet explorer cannot display the webpage". I have no viruses, and my computer is clean. What is the problem? Did some settings or background info change when i was formatting my computer? Need help here.

    1. Click Start>Run (Start>"Start search" in Vista).

    2. Type in (or copy and paste):

              cmd /c ping google.com>%temp%\$.$&notepad %temp%\$.$

          and press Enter.

    3. Notepad will open.

    4. Copy all text in Notepad ([Ctrl-A], then [Ctrl-C]), and then post it (paste = [Ctrl-V]) in your next reply.
