Hi Tja
Have you downloaded any new windows updates,added any software or any hardware.
What I put in blue is what you type. What I put in red is the action
Click on Start>run cmd enter
at the command prompt ping bigpond.com enter
What happens - a reply or a timeout?
To close the command prompt exit enter
Cheers
Peterm

I know you said you tried turning the firewall off but double check that you don't have another one on your pc. make sure to disable windows built in firewall and any 3rd party firewalls that may be installed on your computer such as norton or mcafee, etc... and disable security on the router.

hi guys thanks heaps the issue stays the same. Re- laptop
when i ping it says:
"request could not find host bigpond.com please check name and try again"

i use AVG unable to find setting to change in both AVG and router had a look through my D-Link window.

it's really weird it says that local connection to LAN & Wireless is connected. as i plugged network cable in to try again. still no Joy.
as i thought it may have been a just a wireless issue.....

i spoke with my provider today and they gave me the global DNS code which is
Main = 4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3

it has resolved the issue not sure why it happened or how, but they also gave me there DNS number which seems to work faster but is no good unless u are with them.

i cant believe it it fixed the problem finally.
thanks for working on the issue.

Ok you can ping your router - was this via wireless or via the cable? Can you ping 64.7.210.132
What browser are you using?
If internet explorer click on Tools>Internet options>Lan settings. All 3 boxes should be unticked.
If not untick them then click ok then ok again then reboot
Any Change ?
